REVIEW: Come Out of Her, My People!

First of all, let me just say that if you can find a copy of this pressing little booklet at all, consider yourself lucky, because all of Peter Kershaw’s works are out of print, and Kershaw himself, as far as I can tell, appears to have fallen off the face of the earth at some point between 2003 and 2004.

Why is this booklet vital? Because 99% of the Christian Church has gone apostate in the U.S., has taken a worldly lover, and this booklet tells you who and what that monstrous lover is, and what kind of a price each little church, inc. is paying for it. And God only knows what kind of a price these churches will have to pay in the future.
This booklet also tells Christians what to do about it.

This is a crucial read. So few Christians in America know what has happened to American churches. They sense something has gone wrong, they clamour and complain at the ineffectualness of modern American churches, but they don’t know the source of the sickness. Churches in the U.S. have sold out and gone whoring after the world. They are being led (and fleeced) by HIRELING SHEPHERD, salaried, CEO “pastors” and worldly “treasury board members.”

I do not take the Lord’s name in vain at all, I mean the exclamation quite earnestly when I say this, for I say this unto my Lord as much as to anyone who might be happening to read this: My God!–If only more 21st century Christians could read this little booklet and wake up!!!

Kershaw gets only one thing wrong and it comes near the end of this otherwise superlative book: He thinks churches should be led by a “pastor,” just not an INCORPORATED, hireling shepherd pastor. Baloney. This is errant. Jesus admonished us to have no man elevate himself above the flock with a religious title. The Pilgrims and Anabaptists and just a few others had it right: We are all brothers in Christ, all equally priests before Him. Some of us have different callings and talents, but anybody who would presuppose to elevate himself and adopt a permanent and superior religious title over their brethren had better bring along a helluva lot of buckets and soap with him to first wash the feet of every one of his “parishioners”–only in keeping with Scripture, of course. Wouldn’t it be great if more people did that? Just imagine. And why do I get the feeling that the true, persecuted, underground church today in China DOES maintain itself this way, out of NECESSITY?
Unfortunately, churches in America now need just such grueling necessity in order to purge themselves of massive amounts of dross.
