    Acts 5:5, “And as he heard these words, Ananias fell down and breathed his last; and great fear came over all who heard of it.”

    “Is God seeker-friendly”????

    What was going on in this church in the book of Acts? There was miracles and signs and wonders going on in this church. This is beyond a “light show” or a “rock band”!! This is beyond a skit or a drama!!! This is the real deal! And the “fear” in the church was that “unbelievers” would come in and they already knew that the Lord said that the devil would sow “tares” and the church was in danger of being leavened by the world!! So the wonder of it all had to be mitigated…with fear. In fact the fear had to be so powerful and so great, that it stopped nonchristians outside the door!

    This is absolutely “upsidedown” from modern church growth stategy!!! They could really draw a crowd if they chose to! But there had to become such a “deadly” dread and fear that unbelievers wouldn’t dare go in to the church! Acts 5, God Himself provides the “horror”!!! Read for yourself the story of Ananias and his wife Sapphira.
