Christian's In Name Only
Galatians 4:16 Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?
Christian doesn't mean much anymore. It has become a title only; void of any true allegiance to the LORD Jesus Christ. Christianity no longer means obedience to the Word of God, salvation through Jesus Christ only, the Holy Bible as the inspired Word of God, There are those that claim Christianity and yet believe in and support abortion, homosexuality, same sex marriage, and many other sins. To follow the logic of these pseudo christian’s they must also have no convictions that, incest, bestiality, adultery, fornication, envy, murder, are sins. It's all relative; right? The pseudo christians are not followers of Jesus Christ and wear a shell of Christianity that is void of the Holy Spirit and fails to recognize the supremacy of the LORD Jesus; and worship instead the false gospel of their own heart. Matthew 15:7-9 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, 8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
For the pseudo christian there can be no absolute truth because if there was it would require them to recognize God as the creator of that truth and the Bible as His inerrant word. A belief in absolute truth and God as the supreme creator of that truth cannot be reconciled with their false gospel of moral relativism and the pleasure they take in the worldly living and the pride of this life. So they heap unto themselves another gospel of carnal christianity which allows them to sin without conviction. 2Timothy 3:8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. They have created a false gospel of cultural christianity which worships at the altar of political correctness, social justice, moral relativism, without repentance and judgment. Such is the liberal theology spoken of by God in His Holy Word -2Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. It is a manmade religion void of the worship of the one true God YHVH, the LORD Jesus Christ.
("Worship is no longer worship when it reflects the culture around us more than the Christ within us" -A.W. Tozer)
There is a two assaults coming upon the 'True Blood Bought Born Again Followers of Jesus Christ'. One front is Satan and his workers of iniquity that do not hide their contempt and disdain for the Followers of Jesus Christ. The other assualt will be upon the Followers of Jesus Christ by the pseudo christian and their churches of the white sepulchre. They put on a mirage of Christianity but the true gospel is far from them as it was far from the religious leaders of old -Matthew 23:27-28 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. 28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. Christian in name only.
The time is coming when the pseudo christian and the apostate christianity which they espouse will come into direct conflict with the true Gospel of Jesus Christ; and the alliance between the apostate religious system and the political system that they helped put into power will come against the Followers of Jesus Christ; and they will be so blinded that they think they do Gods work when in reality they do the bidding of the evil one. John 16:1-3 These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. 2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. 3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. There is no new thing under the sun; the Followers of Christ have faced this before. The shell of the pseudo christian will come off in the end if they do not repent and come into the loving and saving knowledge of the LORD Jesus Christ.
In time their true object of worship will be revealed-Daniel 11:36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. Revelation 13:12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. Revelation 13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
Let us fear not dear Followers of Jesus Christ. We need to stand fast and hold to the truth of God’s Word and share the gospel of the LORD Jesus Christ in love. We need to hold fast to the Word of God and let it do its work in the hearts of those that hear it. Let’s us share the love of God but compromise not the truth in so doing. The Word of God will expose the darkness; -Ephesians 5:13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. John 3:19-21 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. Let us just be obedient to the cause of Christ showing love, mercy and compassion as the LORD Jesus has shown us.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 12:44-47 Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me. 45 And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. 46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. 47And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
JESUS SAVES-To God be the Glory
