No one will take the church seriously if we, as the Body of Christ, cannot walk and talk the Word of God AS IT IS WRITTEN.
The simplicity of the Bible is blown so far out of context that it has become conjecture at best. It’s hard to blame the brand new Christian or the post modern Christian for being completely unsanctified when no one has the guts to tell them the truth about the Bible and what it means. Why is the Church the farthest away from the ‘truth’?
The Bible is the bible is the bible. It can never change just as God can never change. But we have people like Eugene Peterson that think they have an edge on the truth, as they see it. God is not pleased. The Bible is a story of Redemption, not a social mix of half-truths to soothe the savage beast. The Message ‘Bible’ has a message: don’t worry, be happy.
This is what I’m getting at: Because of pure conjecture on Man’s part, we have a watered down gospel preached world-wide that does not base itself on the ORIGINAL Word of God which puts the ‘believer’ in a place of pseudo-Christianity. “There is therefore now no condemnation*” has been put to the test….instead of understanding that it was the sinless death of Jesus that saved us because of our own sin, Christians now utter no condemnation because of a false sense of eternal security to justify very bad behaviour without consequence.
It’s kind of like going to a friend’s house that has ‘cool’ parents…no consequence.
You can’t tell this Reverend that it’s okay to drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes. You can’t tell me it’s okay to wear clothes too tight or too short. And regardless of how much they say they love each other, same sex ANYTHING is against the Plan of God in every respect**. Men act like women, women act like men. Abortion continues because the Church will NOT stand up and say it is wrong in every case and every circumstance.
No one will take the church seriously if we, as the Body of Christ, cannot walk and talk and walk the Word of God AS IT IS WRITTEN.
Suicide is rampant because the world saturates people into believing there is no God and no hope of Eternity, thus no reason to live. True Christians worship and fellowship in spite of the world to bring hope to a suffering people.
*Romans 8:1 says, ‘There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
**1 Corinthians 6:9-10says, (v9) ‘Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, (v10) Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.’
