To be faithful to Christ, we cannot mix Jesus plus something. It’s like mixing water with oil. That’s a messy mix. There is contradiction and opposition between the two.The same goes for anything in life: To stay true and faithful to Jesus we absolutely must deny that which denies Christ.
You don’t have to be an unrepentant monster like Hitler to deny Jesus. Just neglect to follow Jesus – leave Jesus’ ways a ways away. Maybe fake it, be one of the enlightened folks who say one thing but act another. Or, choose to sincerely follow Jesus.
According to biblical prophecy extremely deadly pestilences will descend on as at the scale of an apocalypse. Faith in Jesus prepares us to live confidently through whatever comes. Ready for this?
It’s crazy how so many have tried in the past, and are still doing it – “re-interpreting” or discovering some “personal or special” interpretation (2 Peter 1:19-21), attempting to legitimize a new creative way to have it their way. If that is happening in your church – don’t believe it. It is our “job”, our responsibility, as followers of Christ – to use the Bible to ascertain what is of God and what are “the words of a puny human” (we are all “puny humans”). Huge difference. I personally do not want to hear some puny opinions when I go to church. I want to hear God’s “word of truth”.
I am so saddened by the willy-nilly application of Bible truths nowadays. People make it say whatever they want to – so it will thereby backup their own wishful thinking. The Bible is the standard for Christian thought, seeing as how we believe God inspired Godly men to write as He guided them.
See this fascinating Bible Timeline at BibleHub Complete Biblical Timeline. God is just as concerned for each of us today, as He was for all in ancient times. He guided and protected His peoples, and shaped history for His purposes. It is recorded for us in the Old Testament and New Testament. After ages of […]
So sad, that (in some churches) 30% of those around you in church — are not going to heaven. We cannot assume our fellow attendees believe the truth that God came to earth as a man. And THAT is an integral part of the Gospel of Jesus. In fact, many pastors outright teach false doctrines like this from the pulpit, saying “Jesus isn’t God”. Unbelievable! Why worship Jesus, if He is a mere puny man? His death on the cross would then mean nothing.
