I am a child of the evangelical movement. I believed in Jesus after someone confessed to me, “I have accepted Jesus Christ has my personal Lord and Savior.” I examined the claims reading the Bible and acknowledged Him myself.
Nevertheless, the evangelical movement has strayed far from this simple and powerful message. The message has been corrupted into “I have accepted the church as my corporate Lord and Savior.” This is a sad state of affairs. Let us return to Him from whom we have deeply defected (Isaiah 31:6).
