Paul Says Don’t Preach Any Type of ‘DO-DO RELIGION’

Paul Says Don’t Preach Any Type of ‘DO-DO RELIGION’

He says we should all minister the New Testament only, not the Old (II Cor 3:6). The fact is the Old is much easier to preach than the New.

It’s easier to preach: “DO attend church, read your Bible, give money, attend small group, pray regularly, and give lots more money,” OR “DON’T lie, cuss, cheat, steal, commit adultery, yell at your spouse, kick the cat, or be a brat,”

We know by nature these are good things, and we should do them. So, they’re easy to preach.

But to minister the Old is a means by which preachers keep people attracted to them and dependent on their ministry. They keep people coming back to them for help because the people feel guilty and excluded by ministering some sort of law, rules, regulations or precepts they can’t keep. (Gal 4:17). Paul says it’s the preaching they hear that is hurting them. We’re told no one ever succeeds living this type of life (Rom 3:10, Acts 15:10). We all fall flat on our face. But this is often how preachers control people and grow their church.

It produces condemnation and guilt, and keeps people coming back to find out how to get rid of the way they feel. The problem is that it’s often the preaching they hear that is causing them to feel bad.

Some people may glean some things on their own from Bible reading. But it is most often a haphazard and spasmodic approach to scripture. Studies show that most only do sight-seeing tours through the Bible, and never camp out anyplace very long. They seldom come to a deep understanding of what the Bible is truly saying to them practically in the here and now. After all, it’s a lot harder to preach, “Christ in you the hope of glory…” OR “You are dead in Christ, and alive in his resurrection.”

So most people just listen to whatever preaching is offered, often having no comprehension if it is the gospel truth Jesus says we must believe and live, or whether it’s just some form of “DO-DO RELIGION” – “DO this, and DON’T do that.”
