as to why?

(Psa 1:1 KJV)  Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2  But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.   (Prov 1:23 KJV)  Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
 
One now here on  EARTH  cannot merely often live a selfish, self centered life, merely doing what one merely WANTS TOO and then only in an emergency, need, crisis call  upon God for help, for directions, to meet your needs.. even if too many persons still today wrongfully take this approach.. a relationship with God it really does not work that way, and it is very doubtful that God will next hear your prayers if you do so too. Too many Christians even do tithe for the wrong reasons, monetary and not spiritual prosperity, most in fact are still wrongfully worldly minded.. wrongfully trying to become rich even instead of really serving Jesus Christ…
  
(Prov 14:12 KJV)  There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
 
Going to a church these days can be like going to a Bazzar, or a secular Bingo hall. Upon my first visit to two local   professing evangelical  churches I really saw no evidence that many of them that  they were Christians. Showing off,  personal competitiveness, jealousy, were traits I had recently evidenced from too many of the younger and older  members and was not what I had expected.. very obviously spiritual maturity had not fully taken hold upon this group yet. What the older folks there had not set, shown them a standard of love yet? I was also surprised at the large numbers of persons who came very late , just to put in an appearance, and the number of persons who left, before the service was even over too.. persons who to me did not want to stay around and talk to any others. Not even 10 percent of the persons showed up next for the evening Church service, astonishing when you count the number of hours many a person  spends wasting  in from of the TV or  computers these days. To me these are a typical characteristics of a dying church. By their fruits you shall know them says Jesus.
  
(Psa 37:9 KJV)  For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth. (Psa 37:11 KJV)  But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
 
    
Let us all be clear about it that there are good churches and bad churches, there are bad denominations too, just as there is good food and bad food for us that we can eat, there are good restaurants, cafeterias  but also  bad ones too, and if the restaurants had served you bad food you certainly do not go back to it.. for the bad food will not help you grow, nourish for sure too. The brand name itself of a restaurant does not mean it serves good food too.. 
  
(Jer 9:23 KJV)  Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: 24  But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD. 25  Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will punish all them which are circumcised with the uncircumcised;
 
(Phil 3:7 KJV)  But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. 8   Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, 9   And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: 10   That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
 
Did you not find it really surprising that Joseph in the Old Testament that his own jealous, sinful brothers hated him, tried to kill him, cast him out? and so did even strangers, other persons too..
 
 
Let’s be clear,  false Pride in Self cause many people to do wrong, sinful things.. and it even makes them wrongfully think they are doing God’s will, serving God but in reality they are serving the devil. http://pbulow.tripod.com/religious.html
 
 Let me also say from my experience in almost all of the churches and denominations there are generally less than 25 percent of the people are actually even real born again Christians firstly.. and some churches are more godly, more biblical.. and others are less too.
 
Jesus himself says (John 3:7 KJV)  Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.8  The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
 
(John 3:3 KJV)  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
 
(1 John 2:9 KJV)  He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.10 He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.11  But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes. 
 
  
 Unbelievably even today most Christians really do not know what it really means to be a Christian. One accepting  the personal Salvation offered by Jesus Christ is certainly not enough for us to do now here on earth otherwise  if that is all God had wanted of each one of us we would had next immediately go to Heaven when we were saved..
 
Recently I have read on the net, heard in a church  the common, typical prayers, goals of immature, self centered Christians.. their goals and prayer for a mate, spouse, a good job, marriage, a home, and what next a car, more money? Typical very secular goals now as well..
 
While God has called us to Salvation by, through our faith in the finished Jesus Christ, being a Christian includes us all also living for Christ while here on earth. God he has also called us to holiness, walking RIGHTEOUSLY WITH God daily, but in the  reality many Christians are not even doing this.
 
Jeremiah 2:13 For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me,The fountain of living waters, To hew for themselves cisterns, Broken cisterns, That can hold no water.
 
Romans 12:1 I urge you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.
 
Ephesians 4:1 I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, entreat you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called.
 
(1 Tim 6:10 KJV)  For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
 
Too many Christians, most in fact are still wrongfully worldly minded.. wrongfully trying to become rich even instead of really serving Jesus Christ… and why when
 
Ephesians 1:3, 6 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,… 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.
 
John 1:14, 16 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. …16 For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace.
 
John 6:27-29 “Do not work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man shall give to you, for on Him the Father, even God, has set His seal.” 28 They said therefore to Him, “What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?” 29 Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.”
 
  
 
(Jer 12:6 KJV)  For even thy brethren, and the house of thy father, even they have dealt treacherously with thee; yea, they have called a multitude after thee: believe them not, though they speak fair words unto thee.
 
(John 16:2 KJV)  They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. 3   And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.
 
(Mat 10:22 KJV)  And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
 
(Mat 24:9 KJV)  Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
 
(Mat 26:31 KJV)  Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.
 
(Mat 10:17 KJV)  But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
 
(John 3:20 KJV)  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
 
(John 15:19 KJV)  If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
 
(John 15:20 KJV)  Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.21  But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me. 22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. 23  He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
 
(Isa 66:5 KJV)  Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name’s sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.
 
(Isa 66:6 KJV)  A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of the LORD that rendereth recompense to his enemies.
 
(Isa 66:14 KJV)  And when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb: and the hand of the LORD shall be known toward his servants, and his indignation toward his enemies.
 
(Isa 66:15 KJV)  For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.
 
(Isa 66:16 KJV)  For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.
 
(Rom 3:12 KJV)  They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.13   Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: 14  Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: 15  Their feet are swift to shed blood: 16  Destruction and misery are in their ways: 17  And the way of peace have they not known: 18  There is no fear of God before their eyes.
(Isa 10:1 KJV)  Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed; 2  To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless! 3   And what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? to whom will ye flee for help? and where will ye leave your glory? 4  Without me they shall bow down under the prisoners, and they shall fall under the slain. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
 
(Jer 5:10 KJV)  Go ye up upon her walls, and destroy; but make not a full end: take away her battlements; for they are not the LORD’S. 11 For the house of Israel and the house of Judah have dealt very treacherously against me, saith the LORD. 12  They have belied the LORD, and said, It is not he; neither shall evil come upon us; neither shall we see sword nor famine: 13 And the prophets shall become wind, and the word is not in them: thus shall it be done unto them.
 
(Isa 66:17 KJV)  They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.
 
(Ezek 23:29 KJV)  And they shall deal with thee hatefully, and shall take away all thy labour, and shall leave thee naked and bare: and the nakedness of thy whoredoms shall be discovered, both thy lewdness and thy whoredoms. 30  I will do these things unto thee, because thou hast gone a whoring after the heathen, and because thou art polluted with their idols.
 
(Zep 3:11 KJV)  In that day shalt thou not be ashamed for all thy doings, wherein thou hast transgressed against me: for then I will take away out of the midst of thee them that rejoice in thy pride, and thou shalt no more be haughty because of my holy mountain.12 I will also leave in the midst of thee an afflicted and poor people, and they shall trust in the name of the LORD. 13  The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid.
 
(Isa 66:24 KJV)  And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.
   
 
(James 4:1 KJV)  From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?2  Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. 3  Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. 4   Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. 5   Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?
 
(Micah 7:6 KJV)  For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man’s enemies are the men of his own house. 7   Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me. 
   
(Luke 12:15 KJV)  And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
 
(Prov 29:23 KJV)  A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.
 
(Isa 66:1 KJV)  Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest? 2  For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.
 
(Isa 66:4 KJV)  I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not. 

I was surprised how crooked many of the Evangelical pastors, elders, churches are and the Catholic ones too.  I have to admit it came to me as a shock firstly when I started to attend Evangelical, Baptist, Bretheren, Mennonite,  Pentecostal churches in Canada now as an adult that I was OFTEN NOT GIVEN the  same right  to be respected, to speak, and to be heard, and not to be bullied, or falsely oppressed. For them the ends wrongfully justify the means.. They too often do abuse people and next fail just like many businesses do too now  

Too often now the Legal and Human rights that  I had before, often now did not exist in the churches surprisingly now of all places. Never saw so many control freaks, human rights abusers  in my whole life next to the too often bad cops now too.  And perversely many a despotic, crooked elder, pastor had wrongfully tried to shut me up, and even next had resorted next to slander me, to try to discredit me and what I had said,  or whatever,  now even both in Quebec and in Alberta.  http://thefocusonthefamily.wordpress.com/2008/07/03/verbal-abuse-is-always-unacceptable-too/  
 
 
 
30 percent of the people I meet daily in real life are the bad guys that jails exist for still too.. and they should be put in there often too.

MANY BUSINESSES FAIL FIRSTLY BECAUSE OF THE POOR , NEGATIVE WAY THEY SEE, DO TREAT  THE CUSTOMERS, AND THEIR EMPLOYEES AS WELL. So sooner or later they still tend to fail as a direct result, face cutbacks, downsizing, serious changes ..
 
SECONDLY THEY USE A FALSE, POOR , NEGATIVE MANAGEMENT STYLE STILL
 
We also do all know that most persons  still  tend to take an ostrich denial approach to their own faults, shortcomings still..
 
When a business’s profitability is severely reducing, dropping, the top  management often fails to admit the truth, the real reasons as to why,  and they also tend to falsely among many other things
– lie some more
– raise their prices to try to try to increase their profitability, making themselves more uncompetitive
– cut back on customer services, clearly making matters even worse
– resort to costly, false, misleading advertisements again
– blame their employees , and have a high employee turnover, making matters worse
– blame other facts for their own management failures,
– really do not provide a positive, competitive  service
– generally fail to replace all of the bad top executive, middle managers with good personnel
 
That includes Loblaw, Bell, GM, RCMP, Metro, pastors, governments, Real Estate firms, Car dealerships, Newspapers, TV stations, HOSPITALS, Grocery Chains stores, etc.,
 
 
When the employees tend to blame the top management solely for all the problems, generally it is too late to do so, one rotten apple has already tended next to make the whole basket rotten.. and that is often why bankruptcy, or being bought out is the only effective solution too.. 
 
About sowing and reaping.. “Recession fallout hits BCE, Telus wireless results BCE ‘NOT IMMUNE’ TO ECONOMY “We’re not immune,” BCE Chief Executive George Cope said of the economy during a conference call with analysts. The company’s shares fell 62 Canadian cents to C$25.45.The company’s quarterly revenue edged lower to C$4.34 billion ($3.7 billion) from C$4.36 billion a year earlier. At Telus, revenue crawled higher to C$2.37 billion from C$2.35 billion.”  Reuters  –  More miss information, lying corporate spin   and what about news editors, news reporters using their own brain, research rather? doing the honest reporting?   –all 96 articles »
  
Bell has no one but itself to blame for it’s own  downfall,  about 40 percent of it’s own internet customers have complained about big bad Bell abusing them, lying to them, not keeping their contract agreement already. I have often told Bell  in writing that would all  happen now too on the net as well..
  
Bell like Loblow , Royal LePage merely reaps too what it sows.. it next fails to get repeat customers and much needed referrals as a direct result too..

Too many professing  Christians they really do not know the whole Bible, they really do not read it fully for themselves or practise it as well. They wrongfully expect their even  too often wrong, false teachers, pastors to do that for them. Sadly today many a church is still based on cultural or human traditions and really not on God or the Bible in fact.  Why?
 
My own real, personal experiences the last few years in Canada with mostly bad evangelical churches, bad pastors still seems to also indicate that they always do want something from me, like my money for a start,  but they are not willing to have genuine, real, reciprocal, mutual Christian fellowship..  they are merely hirelings and not true servants of God still too,  anyway that is for the better for I really do not rightfully trust too many of them to do the right thing. 
 
A Professing Christian man in my own neighborhood with a nice shining rich car had a bumper sticker on his car which read” don’t be mistaken by my car my treasure is in heaven”. As he was standing by the car, and I was passing by, I said hello  and I started to talk to him about his evangelical local Church he went too.. Eventually next I told him also  I disagreed with the same church’s false positions on enforced tithing  and off course this man became defensive and argumentative.  I merely then asked him if he had read all of the Bible verses in the Bible on tithing and  he admitted he did not.  I asked him if he gave 1/7 of his tithes to the poor persons as required by the law of tithing too? he was not even aware of this Bible requirements. I told him was he aware that all Pastors who got the financial benefit of the tithe as an income were not allowed to own property according to the law of the Bible.. and he said that true fact  was not even in the Bible. Then I merely told him that was not much point in my discussing the Bible with him cause he clearly did not know it or read it. He was embarrassed. We next left on friendly terms.. To me he was still only a “religious” person, “pretending to be a Christian”, merely make a show of his religion.. sadly today many a church is still based on cultural or mere human wants, traditions and not on God or the Bible in fact. Why?
 
(Rom 12:1 KJV)  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. 3   For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
