Place Full of Christians by Pastor Ed Young
Too many churches, too many ministries, too many seminaries, too many televangelists. I did not want to come up here. I wanted to go somewhere where there was a lot of spectacular sinning going on, you know, [where] a lot of people who where totally clueless, totally out there about Christianity. And you know, I’ve grown up in the church. And I grew up in a Pastor’s home, and I thought I knew a lot about the world—until my parents and I parted ways.
Not in a bad way, but we parted ways when I was 18 and I went to school at Florida State, which was a pretty crazy place and I’ll talk about in a second. That, though, helped me so much. God used Florida State in my life to really assist me in seeing not only the life of believers, but also the life of those people who had no concept about God, Christ, the church or whatever. And God used that in a mighty way. So we moved to Dallas and God led, which he had to do to get Lisa and I up here. I thought, you know, it’s just a place full of Christians. And you know, there’s not a lot of people out there who don’t know Christ personally.
Well, man! That’s not true at all. Man, there’s a lot of spectacular sinning on right here in Dallas. There’s a lot of people who are totally outside the family of God. And there’s also a lot of people who are in church, but don’t even know Christ personally. And here’s what blows me away about the Dallas/Fort Worth area. And I’ll develop this more next time.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Fellowship
