What’s a Real Christian?
Paradise Productions
Presents!
Like… If Jesus’ & His disciples would
be alive today, what would they do?
Would this be Jesus’ church today?
Would He preach to 30.000 followers every
week? I mean…He was the best minister ever!
No. He never settled down & built a mega church to
preach to the same 30.000 people every Sunday.
Jesus kept moving around, going everywhere
responding to the cries of needy individuals.
“who went about doing good & healing all that were
oppressed of the devil; for God was with him”
Acts 10:38
Jesus’ only occasional Mass Evangelism were nonplanned outdoor events! And many came for fish
sandwiches only!
He didn’t even stop long enough to build a tent!
10 main reasons why people like
Mega churches!
Did He entertain 30.000 followers every Sunday?
No! He collected 12-70 disciples
and sent them out two by two.
Jesus traveled around
personally to singlehandedly find & call
his 12 disciples.
“Walking by the sea of Galilee, he saw two fishermen.”
And He said, “Follow Me and I will make you fishers of men!”
He didn’t say:
Hi Guys! Like to come to my
mega church on Sunday
morning? We’ve got cool
music & an easy sermon!
Besides, what
is cool music?
Nah! Thanks Pal!
We worship on
the Sabbath day
in our own house
and we fish
Saturday night, so
we sleep in!
Nothing wrong with musical
entertainment or praising
the Lord together, but don’t
call it “God’s Service!” And
you don’t need to build big
billion dollar stadiums to do
that and so doing rob the
mission field of support!
No! Your service doesn’t start until
you leave the darn buildings!
WHEN Jesus went to
church, he forcefully
evicted the Money
Changers THREE times,
(International Bankers!)
And EACH time he
almost got stoned to
death for it! Each time
He left Judea to let
things cool down!
Moral: Churches! Don’t
blame the Bankers?
“And when he had made a scourge of
small cords, he drove them all out of
the temple, and the sheep, & the oxen;
and poured out the changers' money,
and overthrew the tables.” John 2:15.
Mega church pastor 500.000 $ salary.
Church has become big business!!
YET THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH BIG BUSINESS,
AS LONG AS IT PREACHES REAL GOSPEL!
Before Jesus left He commanded them to “go!”
“And He said unto them, ‘GO YE into all the world and
preach the Gospel to every creature!’ - Mk 16:15
And you don’t need to be a flamboyant preacher nor
have a billion $ church building or Mega
Entertainment Hall to do that!
Hi! Jesus
loves you!
Let’s go to
my house!
OK! I ask Him
in my heart
now!
OK! I’d like to
know more
about Him!
All you need to do is …GO where the sheep are and
love them individually into His fold! And you can use
your house or even a shack to teach them the Bible!
“Well”, you say, “Jesus said, you shall do greater
works than I!” Isn’t that how the Early Church
operated? Bigger Halls & Crowds & Sermons?
Jesus is the Messiah,
and he loves you!
Jésus est le Messie!
Et il t’aime!
Ο Ιησούς είναι το
Messiah και σας αγαπά.
Jesus es el Messias, et
il te quiero!
Jesus è il
Messiah e li
ama.
Jesus ist der
Messias und Er
liebt dich
The Upper Room wasn’t a church. They were praying & waiting
there for 10 days for the promise of the Holy Spirit! After it came
they went out witnessing to many in other languages!
After they went out the 11 Disciples stood up with Peter
who preached a tough sermon to a spontaneous crowd,
as he also did in the temple, after healing the lame man
The results were that first 3000 and after 5000 men
joined the Church! NOT a building! But the houses
of the first 500 Christians, sharing all things!
The first Christians were ALL disciples who lived
together, studied the scriptures, & preached the Gospel!
“And all that believed were together and sold their
possessions and goods and parted them to all men as every
man had need! And they, continuing daily with one accord in
the temple and breaking bread from house to house, did eat
their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, praising
God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord
added to the church daily such as should be saved. ”
Acts 2:44-47
They were HOME churches!
They didn’t get involved in
politics, and after
persecution kept a polite
distance from the jealous
religionists! —
The Scribes and Pharisees!
Nor did they preach the
return for scattered Zionist
Jews to Israel and were even
less willing to fight ungodly
World Wars for them!
That’s what the real Christians
of the Early Church were like!
Their 8000 disciples went OUT to preach the Gospel
daily!
“And daily in the temple and in every house they
ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ!
Acts 5:42
AND THAT’S EXACTLY THE WAY Not like this!
WE COULD DO IT TODAY!
But like this!
What are you
doing for Him and
for the unsaved
that a real
Christian is
supposed to do?
