It was never God’s intention that his Church should conform to the ways of the World. It is the World which should conform to Gods ways through the teachings of the Church.
God’s way is not hard, in fact it is pretty easy once you realize that a lot of what we have been made to believe, (some from the church itself)had nothing to do with what God said.
As a child I was led to believe that we were not allowed to make a single mistake or we would be condemned to Eternal damnation. Certain verses of scripture were used to frighten us kids. I believe they also had the unintended consequences of causing many to feel they could never make it to Heaven, so some didn’t even bother to try.
One such scripture verse was Matthew 19:24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”
Jesus made those comments to his Disciples after a rich young man asked him what should he do to have life eternal. Jesus told him to keep the commandments to which the man replied all these things have I kept from my youth , what lack I yet?
To which Jesus replied , sell all that thou has and give the proceeds to the poor, then come follow me. When the young man heard that he went away sorrowful. He was a man of much wealth. Matthew 19:22.
You see it is not impossible to make it to Heaven , Jesus said this because he saw the reluctance of this rich man to let go of his earthly possessions. It’s not difficult to get to Heaven . In fact when Jesus’ Disciples reminded him that they had given up the life they had to follow him, he assured them thus. Matthew 19:29. “And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or farms for My name’s sake, will receive many times as much, and will inherit eternal life.
The Church of Jesus Christ should not try to fit in to the World, the word of God is the same yesterday , today and for all time henceforth.
♦Why then is the Church preaching get along Gospel?
♦Why is the Church silent on end time prophesies?
♦Why is the Church silent on the Books of Daniel and the Revelations?
♦Why is the Church silent on Homosexuality?
♦Why is the Church causing people to believe they can come as they are and remain as they are ?
♦Why is the Church so a part of the World that sometimes it is difficult to differentiate what stops where?
The Church is a Hospital for sick souls, it is not a Hospice where souls go to die. It is high time that the leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ speak truth to power irrespective of consequences. Christians cannot be afraid of persecution. We cannot be afraid of being ostracized by the demonic forces of this world. We must stand on the principles of our Christian faith and say to the World < Thus sayeth the Lord!
We can only do so however, if we are living a life that is not in conformity with the world. Otherwise we are nothing more than mere hypocrites.
We may come to the Lord battered , bruised, and broken. We may come to the Lord irrespective of our circumstance. We may come to the Lord with our maladies , we just cannot remain in sin and claim to be a child of God.
