I been asked by several people now, questions concerning the gifts in the non-message churches. MSG believers seem to think that the MSG denomination is the only one that God gives his spiritual gifts to in these last days. Untrue.
The actual truth is that the other churches have progressed FAR BEYOND the MSG churches. Let's examine.
Everyone is familiar with this passage, but I will have you read it again:
1. If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned,[a] but have not love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;[b] 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.
13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13
And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
"The greatest of these is Charity [Divine Love]".
Do you see the fruits of this spiritual gift in the MSG churches? I see some of the denominations with the greatest charity and disaster relief efforts, ranking almost as high as the Red Cross!
I watched 'the MSG organization' disaster relief to ONLY those who were in the MSG while several others lost their homes. Charity? The Greatest Gift to the MSG churches? I think not!
Here are the four largest organizations in the world that offer their charity during disasters:
1. The Red Cross
2. The Salvation Army
3. The Southern Baptist Convention
4. The Roman Catholic Church
Where does the MSG denomination fall into this list? It DOESN'T EVEN RANK!
Since the greatest of these spiritual gifts is charity, then it is proven by the Bible that the MSG churches have NOT progressed in God's spiritual gifts. ...even the Catholic Church has progressed farther than the Message denomination!
All this while the 'organization' is sitting on a hundred million bucks!!!
