The Religious ‘Shows’ Are Coming to an End – Thank God!
“Josh Packard says that 65 million people have left the ‘church’. Many of these are former leaders who love God. Where are they going?” (© Charisma Magazine Archives).
As the Holy Spirit has been saying over the past five years – The institution will die and is busy dying.
Millions are leaving the “church” as they have come to know it, for a variety of reasons.
One predominant reason is that people have finally come to terms with the fact that the model has failed as it had been presented, and now see the flaws and failures, as more and more of is exposed that was previously hidden behind closed doors.
People are returning to the roots of the Gospel, realizing that its not about buildings and logos, but about intimacy with Jesus, and about fellowship with people.
Small groups are rising up everywhere as people are coming together informally, free from religious institutions and religious rhetoric, to worship in Spirit and in Truth.
There is a great hunger for great encounters with Jesus … and they are finally discovering it in the company where two and three’s are coming together!
