MEADVILLE, Pa. (PRWEB) February 14, 2019
“God’s Glory and the Exhortation”: an uncompromising work of Christian reflection, is the creation of published author Rene Bates, a Maine-bred US Army vet and widower based in Nevada.
Bates shares ten of sixteen reasons, “Why So Many Traditions of Men Exist within the Organized Religious System Commonly Known as the Christian Church:
1. Your pastor: God-anointed or self-appointed (Jeremiah 14:14–15, 23:21)
2. How to recognize false prophets (Matthew 7:21–23)
3. How to recognize a true pastor from a hireling (John 10:10–13)
4. The body of Christ or a business for profit (1 Peter 5:2–3)
5. How to recognize the sensual gospel—that which pertains to the senses
6. How to recognize those who transform themselves into messengers of Christ (2 Cor. 11:13–15)
7. Why are things so predictable in church meetings?
8. How to recognize hirelings who use God, His Word, and His gifts to be rich and famous (1 Peter 4:17)
9. True church or a repealing liturgical melody of sameness, the one reason Jesus and the apostles were persecuted and killed, their opposition to ‘traditions of men’ (Mark 7:6–13; John 5:16)
10. Why don’t we have church the way Paul and Jesus commanded us to have church? (1 Cor. 14:26–40)”
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Rene Bates’s new book is an unwaveringly astute and provocative point of view on the ways and follies of the modern church.
Bates is unafraid to speak God’s truth, refusing to bow to the weight of misguided tradition but instead showing a spirit made of sterner stuff, in line with the great but opposed prophets of the Old Testament as well as the hard-pressed apostles of the New; with his writings bearing the same weight of divine wisdom to both bless and course-correct the faithful few.
