The Selfishness of Meism Mentality.

When denominations become absorbed with, our belief system, our understanding of what Church is, the number of memberships signed, our interpretation of the Bible, the number of “churches” we have, how many supporters we have, etc...etc... they become to;

self-centered;
self-absorbed;
self-defensive;
self-conscious;
self-protecting,
self-pitying,
self-elating;
self-assured;
self-promoting;
self helping;
self-righteous;

to grasp and understand God’s gospel of grace that He desires to extend to people.

They become so preoccupied with “ourselves” “our pressures” “our problems” that is it a religion of meism!

This causes them to be oblivious of the opportunities to meet the needs of the across-their-path-people God brings in their life.

They begin to believe that a believers life is about the showmanship of the religious elite, how many meetings they attend, that Church happens on Sundays, or other programmed-event-drive-meetings.

Church is living the Christ life in living life 24/7!
