Yesterday I re-posted an article I had written last year and felt led to expound upon what these “fables” are.
First and foremost they are made to look like Jesus Christ, but they are not Christ. Humans will use His name in vain for their own glorification and think they are “Christian” when that is the furthest thing from the truth.
What to look for when humans use the name of “Jesus” and are actually teaching fables.
They will tell you to seek out your rewards within this temporal plain we now live within. Saying it is all for you to receive your rewards and riches here and now. This is totally opposite the words of Jesus Christ and ANY that promise rewards on this earth are of the one who runs the earth at this time, that being Satan.
Matthew 6: 19 “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. 21 Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be. 22 “Your eye is like a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is filled with light. 23 But when your eye is unhealthy, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is! 24 “No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money. 25 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? 27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? 28 “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? 31 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. 34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.
Another fable is that Christ is ALL love and ALL are welcome into heaven. Yet Christ spoke more of the fires of the pit of fire than He spoke of Love. The Bible makes it clear that there are those that will never be allowed into heaven if they continue to live in their sins. Yet those that listen to the fable say that “love” is all there is and Jesus will welcome all. This is a twisting of the truth. Taking the truth and turning it to suit those that would rather live in sin than place God first and foremost in their lives.
The truth is yes Jesus Christ will welcome all, BUT you MUST repent of your sin. True repentance means to leave your sins behind and never do them again. This is what many refuse to do and so these that refuse to leave their sins in truth have not accepted Christ as their Savior and so will be partakers of that which Jesus Himself spoke more of, the pit of fire. Let me get you to understand by revisiting the story of Christ and the young rich man. For most would consider being rich not a sin, but as was shown in the verses above it is. So if being rich is a sin how much more of a sin is those things that are clearly called out in the Bible as not being allowed entrance into heaven?
The young rich man told Christ he followed all the commandments and what else would guarantee he makes it into heaven. Christ told him to sell all he had and give it to the poor and then to follow Him, which meant to follow all the teachings Christ has been giving to all. The young man turned away disheartened and despondent for he desired the world and his riches more than he did God and His Son. He chose eternal death instead of eternal life. Yet Jesus looked at him in love and kindness even as he turned his back upon Christ. Christ loves all of humanity, but He had given us a measurement to stand by to gain complete and open access unto Him. That being we must not seek that of the world, this earth, this time, but live as if we are already His eternal servant and placing His Father first in ALL that we do.
Mark 10:17 As Jesus was starting out on his way to Jerusalem, a man came running up to him, knelt down, and asked, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 18 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus asked. “Only God is truly good. 19 But to answer your question, you know the commandments: ‘You must not murder. You must not commit adultery. You must not steal. You must not testify falsely. You must not cheat anyone. Honor your father and mother.’” 20 “Teacher,” the man replied, “I’ve obeyed all these commandments since I was young.” 21 Looking at the man, Jesus felt genuine love for him. “There is still one thing you haven’t done,” he told him. “Go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” 22 At this the man’s face fell, and he went away sad, for he had many possessions. 23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the Kingdom of God!” 24 This amazed them. But Jesus said again, “Dear children, it is very hard to enter the Kingdom of God. 25 In fact, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!” 26 The disciples were astounded. “Then who in the world can be saved?” they asked. 27 Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.” 28 Then Peter began to speak up. “We’ve given up everything to follow you,” he said. 29 “Yes,” Jesus replied, “and I assure you that everyone who has given up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or property, for my sake and for the Good News, 30 will receive now in return a hundred times as many houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and property—along with persecution. And in the world to come that person will have eternal life. 31 But many who are the greatest now will be least important then, and those who seem least important now will be the greatest then.”
