I ran into a post on Facebook last night that caused me to read a linked article. I would love to include this in the post, but it appears the person posting it didn’t like my response and so I cannot find it again to allow you to read it.
What the article implied is that “Christians” need to make themselves more appealing to the masses to bring more into “Christianity.”
Here was the first problem. Christians are told to be a reflection of Christ. Does this mean to be kind, loving and caring? By all means yes, but the person writing the article had issues with those that show where the Bible says we should not tell people not to sin because this infringes on this person’s right to live as they wish.
Here was the kicker for me though. The person writing the post said God does not take sides for God is just God. The implication was that God is neutral. A being that sits above looking down and does not interact with His creation. This in itself would negate the need for Jesus to have come into this reality and to have died upon the cross for our sins.
Here is the point I want to get across. God is not neutral. He is already on a “side.” For the Bible tells us clearly that it is we the humans that must choose a side. This is why we have free will. The person writing the article stated that God does not belong to any party, not to disagree but that is not true, as I stated in my reply to this post in Facebook was that officially per the Bible, God was not a democrat. This is true. For democrats support things within the Bible that are called sins. Sins are of the world and are on the opposite side of God. For the Bible clearly states that if humans befriend the world they are the ENEMIES of God. In another post I re-posted a few days ago and showed several key elements within the Democratic Party that shows them to be the enemies of God. As Jesus said Himself a house divided cannot stand. So since God cannot be His own enemy those that befriend and live in the world and support sin and even encourage sin are on the opposite side of God.
Those that come to know that God is real and accept Jesus Christ are their Savior know that they must strive daily to become more and more like Jesus. When doing this they know they are getting closer and closer to the light, the good and the glorious. For this is the side that God has always been on. Any that say we must make “Christianity” more appealing to the masses have no true concept of what it means to be a child of God, and I truly am sorry for them and pray that they may one day see the light before it is too late, but time is running out in that department for all.
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. 3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
James 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
