Summary: Many so-called Christians are now filled with all kinds of different ingredients that they are now something different, filled with a bunch of self-indulgent froth rather than solid Biblical substance.
“Coffee House Christians”
Bishop M.L. Maughmer, Jr.
OPENING:- My wife likes the smell of coffee but she doesn’t like the taste of it. I like coffee I like it black no sugar and no cream. As a matter of fact I like coffee so much that I once developed a lump and had to have a mammogram and it was determined that I drank too much coffee. I like coffee. There is a coffee house that my wife and I sometimes go to because they sale different kinds of tea and my wife likes tea. It is a real nice place to visit the atmosphere is relaxing and they sale a variety of products that smell and taste delicious. One of my favorite things to get from this place is what is called a Milky-Way Coffee. It has Caramel, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Cream, and Whipped Cream in it. It is called a Milky-Way Coffee but it doesn’t taste anything like coffee because so many other ingredients have been added to it WATCH THIS:- that the flavor of it has been changed, even though it is called coffee it’s substance is something altogether different.
Many so-called Christians are now filled with all kinds of different ingredients that they are now something different, filled with a bunch of self-indulgent froth rather than solid Biblical substance. Instead of being warriors for God they are devoted to the gratification of self; self-focused, self-sufficient and self-absorbed way of living and worship. They are Milk-Way people that have a form of godliness but on the inside are spiritually dead. They have no power Jesus said in Matthew 23:27 “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness”. They can’t pray a headache away, can’t stand any kind of trial, can’t do as the Bible says and “Enter his gates with thanksgiving and into his courts with praise be thankful unto him and bless his name”, but heap to themselves teachers having itching ears they want to know how can I be rich they want you to make me feel good, they say don’t preach be ye separate and holiness without no man shall see the Lord cause that doesn’t make me feel good, but tickle my fancy cause I want my best life now the whole time singing I am on my way to heaven and I’m so glad.
We are living in a time when Holiness is at an all-time low and immorality in the church and in the lives of so-called Christians is at an all-time high. Divorce among so-called saved people is at an all-time high. Wrong is being called right and right being called wrong. Compromise seems to be the accepted norm mediocrity is being pushed off as God understand. We have the Preachers of L.A and Preachers of Detroit literally making merchandise of the church. We have homosexuals laying so-called hands on Bishops speaking in a perverted form of tongues and the kundalini spirit which is the snake spirit manifesting itself and blind, deceived, and mislead so-called saved people are applauding it thinking that God is doing a new thing. The church is having communion with the world when the Bible says have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them Eph 5:11. Pulpits have lost their influence upon people because they have mixed the ingredients of the world into the church and into their lives to the point that it has nearly cheapened the Gospel message and caused people to wear the title Christian yet deny the very substance of what it takes to be like Christ.
Many people profess to know Christ, but their lives do not display the evidence of true holiness. The Bible says you will know a tree by the fruit it bears, but when a fruit tree fails to produce fruit and you mention that the tree is not doing what it is supposed to, WATCH THIS:- then you are faced with folks walking out on you, you now have to deal with a hate crime charge and people misquoting scripture and turning it all around talking about you are not to judge.
We have taken Holiness & Sanctification out of the church and now because of this our churches are filled with Milky-Way Coffee people that are full of all kinds of stuff that make them all warm and fuzzy and has literally changed them into something total different. O Zion what’s the matter now.
WATCH THIS:- When we fail to carry out the mandate of the Great Commission, when we as the salt of the earth have lost its savor when we place ours needs as the center and focus of the church and everything rotates around my happiness then we are headed for a great deception. This is the deception that pollutes our so-called Christian television today and propagates Milky-Way Coffee Christians.
