Confessions of a screwed middle aged man: the shallow Christians part 2


Once again I run into those that see themselves as right with the Lord and yet shows signs they are nowhere near Him.
This time it had to do with the withdrawal of the last presidential candidate that could with honesty say they were “Christian.” For as of now there is none running that can say this and not be lying to your face. But since that is their favorite pass time they don’t even realize the truth themselves.
Anyway on with the real topic of this article. The Holy Spirit impressed upon the words I wrote down in an article I posted this last Wednesday: “America has spoken now judgment can begin.”
I shared this link on Glenn Beck sight due to his discords he was stating on his radio broadcast that day. Now I understand Mr. Beck is Mormon. I understand this group and I do not support them in their views. One thing many do not wish to accept is that Mormons, and this can be said of Catholicism, is that at their core is the actual Bible. This is how the lie can be perpetuated for at its core is the truth, which is then twisted by the addition of the man-made. This is how the Pharisees become blinded to the truth.
So as I said I re-posted this article listed above there. I received a response which was an attack by someone that called themselves “Christian.”
This was the first clue that they were shallow. Per Matthew 18:15 when someone shows an error in their belief and doctrine we are to PRIVATELY take them aside and discuss the issue. This is easily done in Facebook in a private message to the person.
Second clue. He words was an attack not a discussion. There was no philadelphia is his attitude. The true meaning of philadelphia is brotherly love. Now the “brotherly love” is not love for all humanity as it has been twisted by humanity to mean. It actually means love for your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ alone.
Third clue. He made an assumption I have not read the Bible correctly. Now do I know the Bible as I should? The answer to that is no I do not. I am human. I am imperfect. I am flawed. However, I do acknowledge that Jesus Christ is my Savior. I strive to overcome my sin. I am repentant. I do pray and I do read the Bible and seek out the true meaning of the Bible through in-depth study with the use of the King James Version of the Bible. Strong’s Concordance, a dictionary and The Theological Dictionary of the New Testament (unabridged). This insight into the word of God and the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ has opened my heart into these teachings.
Forth clue. Attacking my statement that I would pray to for him as placing me on a “high biblical horse of yours and pretend to know Gods plan.” I know the word of God. As I stated above I do not know it perfectly, but I know enough to see the signs that God said to watch for. I see them. They are there for those that have eyes to see and an ear to hear. It is not me, it is God. It is Jesus.
The crux of this man’s argument was I calling Ted Cruz a new Christ. I was not nor would I ever do that. That is against the Bible. There is only one Christ and that is the man who went to the cross and then came back to life three days later. Also at the core was the roots of conservatism, which is traditional values and religious a.k.a. Christian values. The crux of my words in the fore mentioned article was there is no one that has these values left. Donald Trump is a false Teacher per 2 Peter 2 and I made this point with this man. He ignored it and would rather continue his attack toward me on the fact that all the signs about us is that we are near the return of Jesus Christ, by the way this was the fifth clue.
The Sixth clue. I will quote him here and allow you to see where he stands”
“‘I see the soon return of Christ.’ You know, I see it to, but so has every generation since it has been prophesied. Just remember, not even the angles in heaven know when. We can’t rule our lives over it. Nothing bad comes from the Lord, only good. We are commanded to pray for those who have power over us, and that’s all we can really do.”
The quote in this statement was him quoting me and this was his response to it. I will pick apart this response:
The Sixth clue part 2: “You know, I see it to, but so has every generation since it has been prophesied. Just remember, not even the angles in heaven know when. We can’t rule our lives over it.”
This shows he is not seeing the signs of our times. He is not seeing the apostasy. Yes we do not know the time it is to happen, but Jesus told us plainly that He would give us signs that His return is soon.
Matthew 24:33 – In the same way, when you see all these things, you can know his return is very near, right at the door.
These signs are everywhere as never before.
Now the BIGGEST clue number seven: “We can’t rule our lives over it.” This is absolutely OPPOSITE the teachings of the Bible.
Mark 12:29 – Jesus replied, “The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The Lord our God is the one and only Lord. 30 And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.
We are to place God and His Son at the core of our lives and allow Him to be the focus. Not ourselves, but God. We can only do this by LIVING the values taught within the Bible. This means we must let the belief that Jesus is soon to return be what guides our every action, which is not what this man says he personally follows. We must live our lives as if he is going to be knocking upon our door at any moment. Not days from now, not week, not years, not decades, not centuries, but NOW. Why?:
Matthew 24:42 – “So you, too, must keep watch! For you don’t know what day your Lord is coming.”
The eighth clue. “Nothing bad comes from the Lord, only good. We are commanded to pray for those who have power over us, and that’s all we can really do.”
This is the mentality of those that teach God is only love. Yes He is love, but God is also righteous. God will judge and God will punish. This is made clear in the Bible. There is a pit of fire and not only Satan, but ALL that choose him over God will be in this pit. This is fact. This is the Bible.
To say we cannot take action in our faith and only pray says we are to do nothing. Well doing nothing is exactly what Satan wants people that call themselves “Christian” to do. It is this inaction that has allowed abortion the new name of human sacrifice to be protected by laws. It is this inaction that has allowed sin to run rampant and again become protected by man-made laws which has allowed the grievous sin of homosexuality to become legitimized by these laws. Here was my reply to this man’s last response I would reply too:
“Yes pray for them. But as the Body of Christ here on earth we are to reflect Christ and ALL his values in ALL that we do including voting. Your words scream of a shallow Christian… again I will pray for you…”
I will leave this here and allow you the reader to think upon what I have said today.
