Fighting the war against the “Wrong self”


The war against oneself is the hardest battle to ever be fought. It is ongoing; it is continual. There is rarely a break, but there are times when you are at peace with yourself.
As you age you come to learn more and more of what is right and what is wrong. If you are taught correctly when you are young you learn to avoid certain pitfalls, but still you fall short in many things and the “wrong self” wins instead of the “right self.”
The wrong self gets the expensive car, the wrong self seeks more and more materialistic items like houses more money things that truly have no meaning beyond this life, yet the “wrong self” still wins.
It is through understanding the Bible that we soon learn that there is more to this life than this life. There is God the creator of all you see about you and you. There is His Son who took your place upon the cross so you could live FOREVER.
Now why did I capitalize that word “FOREVER?”
Because this temporal life we now live in is truly a blink of an eye to what our REAL life is going to be. This life is just a trial to see if we can handle what is to come.
If all we do is listen to choices that are made by the “wrong self” our earthly and temporal bodies then that is all the reward we will ever get. Then when it is time to get your true and glorious reward of an eternal body, which ALL will be given. Those that chose the temporal rewards will receive no rewards and will not only be heartbroken but their eternal bodies will be stuck in one place for all of eternity.
On the other hand you will have those that followed the teaching of Christ and chose not to live in the temporal but sought after the eternal that will receive their rewards for that time. A time that as the word “eternal” implies will last for billions upon billions of years and will not only be here upon earth but throughout all of God’s creation, the universe.

Should Christianity change?


Many ask that question. What is to follow is my opinion on the matter.
My answer to this question. NO. It should not change. Christianity has had its difficulties ever since Jesus. Even in the early days, many of the things that are present in the church today were present in the church when Paul was teaching unto the Gentiles.
If you are willing to go with what is popular today than your heart is not where it should be. We are not to be a part of the world but separate from it as an example of what is good in the eyes of God. If you go about saying that it is okay to sin then you are turning your back on God. This goes for any sin. If the Bible states it is a sin it cannot change. It is still the same sin it was when it is called a sin when God on Mount Sinai gave Moses the laws. It was a sin when Jesus walked upon the earth. It was a sin when our ancestors came to America so they could worship God as the Bible taught, not as a King said it was to be done. It is a sin today.
I will help and befriend someone who chooses to live in sin, but I will still try to get him or her to realize that they are living in sin. It is not my place to force them to change. It is my place to be the light of God upon the world and expose those acts as sin.
If that person rejects God that is their choice as it should be, but I will still let them know that “if” there is a God then they are destine to an eternal life that is more hideous then what ISIS (ISIL) is doing to my fellow Christians in the Middle East. An ETERNAL LIVE of pain and suffering by their own choice.
As Christians, we are meant to be an example of what is true, right and clean. If your church allows those that sin within it. Then that church has turned it back on God and is no longer a church. A prime example is the Presbyterian Church, which first stated it would no longer acknowledge Israel, but then said it would accept homosexuality. That organization is no longer Christian and so if you call yourself Christian you must leave this group and find a place that is still Christian and follow the teaching of the Bible. We are told that Israel is the promised nation of God so to deny Israel is to deny God. We are told in the Bible that homosexuality is a sin. Therefore, if you allow sin into your buildings you allow Satan to have dominion and not God.
The basic principles of Christianity have lasted since 33 A.D. until now. That is one thousand nine hundred and eight plus years. Not counting the years from Mount Sinai. Nearly two thousand years that these rules, laws and teachings have endured yet now they are wrong? Sorry, but those that say they are wrong are the ones that are in the wrong.
People are dying more than ever for calling themselves Christian. Are you willing to have someone saw off your head as they did or are you a hypocrite? I already now the answer. I am willing to die a martyr for God. Are you?
