Has the modern Church forsaken the Holy Word of God for a “feel good” doctrine that fills seats but puts souls in peril?
"Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire." - Hebrews 12:28-29
Today, many of Christianity’s most uncomfortable topics are either ignored or misinterpreted. Don’t Die in the Pew offers a head-on, scripture-based examination of some of the modern church's most controversial subjects. The author implores the Christian reader not to rely solely on a man to interpret the Bible but to read and study for oneself. She demonstrates how scripture can be misconstrued if not read and understood in context and harmony with all related scriptures.Don’t Die in the Pew will encourage the Christian reader to thoughtfully examine the surety of his or her salvation. The author takes the reader on a journey to find the rarely studied history of Israel and the early Church. She connects the dots of the Old and New Testament, and she uses Scripture to debunk the now popular “Once Saved, Always Saved” doctrine that is pervasive in many churches today. Whether you sit in a pew once a week or once a year, this book is for you. Don’t Die in the Pew urges the Church, both leaders, and goers, to WAKE UP and discover that the Truth can only be found in the scripture. It implores you not to ignore God’s written Word and warns that if you do, you may just die in the pew. This book will surprise you and likely challenge long-held beliefs about Christianity’s most thought-provoking questions such as: -What is the relevance of the Old Testament in today’s world?-Why is what’s happening in Israel important to Christians and “end times”? Is it possible to lose your salvation…is “Once Saved, Always Saved” biblical? What is God’s special relationship with Israel, a people He literally divorced? Jer 3:8 Join author Krista D. Smith on a fascinating journey through Scripture as she seeks absolute Truth.
In the book of Jude he speaks of those who are apostate from the faith and he said this:
“These are spots in your love feasts, while they feast with you without fear, serving only themselves.
They are clouds without water
[HAVING APPEARANCE BUT WITHOUT SUBSTANCE],
carried about by the winds; late autumn trees without fruit, twice dead
[DEAD PRIOR TO SALVATION AND DEAD AGAIN AFTER LOSING IT],
pulled up by the roots; raging waves of the sea, foaming up their own shame; wandering stars for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.”
