America is in need of a renaissance of the human spirit, and the Christian church must become the godly vehicle. Therefore, let the church be the church, and allow what God ordained in the Garden of Eden to continue; and, above all be proclaimed as the bride of Jesus. The twenty-first century gospel of material prosperity over spiritual prosperity, as proclaimed by some pastoral leaders, has no place in the Christian church. This materialistic perspective has shaken the foundation of the church that Jesus proclaimed the very gates of hell shall not prevail against. Jesus is the solution to the mental-spiritual pollution running rampant in American society, not guns. Jesus was not a warrior king but a peacemaker king, and His gun was the truth. Truth makes us free, not guns. The New Testament Writer Paul declares, "We fight not against flesh and blood, but principalities and the rulers of darkness in high places". The price tag on righteousness is high, but the price tag on unrighteousness is even higher. To be sure, the Christian church is not about a building made by hands. "The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands; neither is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives life and breath to all things: and He made from one, every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times, and the boundaries of their habitation" (Acts 17: 24-26). The church is full of pomp, circumstance, and emotionalism, but not a lot of love, grace and service as exemplified in the life, teachings and examples of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Therefore, the greatest line item in a church's budget ought to be benevolence, not lavish pastoral life styles.
