The hippie Jesus is alive and well but the true Christ is hard to find.

People have this misconception of Jesus Christ. They think He is all love and tolerance. This is a false narrative. It is a narrative designed to allow people to do as they please and think they are one with God when in reality they are not. Jesus said this about who he is:
Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
Yet today many think that He came to destroy the law. They believe that to live in sin is fine and dandy. Not giving up anything that was called a sin in the Old Testament, but if Christ truly came to fulfill the law and the prophets then we must still adhere to what is written in the Old Testament.
Yet that is not how most think, feel or behave. I am once again reminded of 1 Peter 2 and my heart is saddened and I do not know what to do other then write these words. Hoping and praying they will allow the scales to fall from the eyes of someone and to see the truth.
A truth that is a painful pill to swallow, but a truth that must be said and given. The other day I mentioned Leviticus to someone and they did not understand. Yes it is true that there is no longer a need to make the blood sacrifices as were shown within that book for yes Jesus Christ taking our place upon the cross made that no longer necessary, but the list of actual sins has not gone away. They are still present for human beings are still corrupt and we shall remain so until we are given our new and eternal bodies.
Yet people go about thinking they are now within these bodies just because they asked Jesus into their heart. This is the furthest thing from the truth. Time and again we are warned with the New Testament to watch our steps and to keep God ever present and first above all else.
When you place God first you must follow what is taught by His Son. Do not sin, turn from sin. I have mentioned John 15, I have mentioned 1 Peter 2 and I have shown people Revelation 3:14-22.
Yet people still come back and say “It is not black and white.” I am sorry to once again say this, but yes it is. Christ Himself, within His glorified body told this to John:
“I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.”
So if Christ Himself says that you must be cold (black) or hot (white), then how can you possibly tell me it is not what Christ Himself said it should be?
