Out of nowhere it seems

Ever since this episode of the vulgarity of the Republican candidate came to light. Suddenly the realization that many that say they are “Christian” are having doubts, are questioning what is real. Are set-a-back by the fact that they may not be where they should be with God.
Well, all I can say is. It is about time.
Yet do I still feel that enough have awoken to the truth or are even asking the right questions?
Too many have become seduced by the world. Too many seek more possessions. Too many seek after the latest fad or items. Too many spend what money they have on the luxuries of the world. Too many spend their time worshiping sports as they should be worshiping the Creator of all.
Too many are the lukewarm. Too many are hypocrites.
This is the reality. This is the truth.
I will say this again so that those willing to listen may hear. If you say you are “Christian” and vote Democratic you are nowhere near being Christian. For that party supports human sacrifice known as abortion. That party supports all sins most of which are told within the Bible will not be welcome within heaven.
I understand that people make their own choices to either live in sin or not. We cannot dictate to them not to live in sin if that is their desire, their lust.
But when we condone it. When we show support for their choices by supporting an organization dedicated to establishing a world in their eyes “free of God.” Than for those that call themselves “Christian” and vote for any in this group are in essence stating that they are right and God is wrong. They are saying that the creation is better than the creator. (See Romans 1)
Yet this is only part of the problem.
We have those that ran without looking back toward a mere mortal and cried out to the world that he was their savior. Any that doubted them were the true sinner the true unfaithful to their new savior and should be rejected outright.
Now reality is coming to roost for many out there as they find their shining knight has tarnished, rusted and dirty armor. The paint is washing off of his white charger.
This is what happens when you turn from God and seek after what is of His creation. Yet this is how most that call themselves “Christian” live day to day. Now many have a misconception of what being a Christian really means. They honest think that going to church once a week is enough. This is a lie.
Once again I point out what is called the greatest commandment by Jesus Christ Himself. We are to love GOD with all our heart, all our mind and all our soul.
What does that mean?
With our hearts we love God with all our heart and continually.
With our minds we think of God constantly. Learning and memorizing scripture and the meaning of the words of the Bible in their original languages, Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic.
With our souls we show our love to God by asking Jesus Christ to be our Savior and to follow the teachings of the Bible. Striving daily to repent of all our sins and to live more and more like Christ every day.
This is where the majority of our efforts should be.
God First, our spouse second, our family third and all else somewhere down the line.
Does this mean we require the best of everything? Actually no.
All we require is what will carry us to the next day. A simple shelter, food, clothing and a way to get around.
The Bible makes this very clear with the encounter with the rich man. He asks Jesus, after showing that he is faithful and true to God, what is required to guarantee his entry into heaven. Jesus instructed him to sell everything and give it to the poor and then come and follow Him.
The rich man went away disheartened. Then Christ made it clear that those that seek after riches will have a harder time entering into the eternal life than for a camel to go through the eye of a needle.
Are you willing to sell everything?
Are you willing to give up your sports, your golf, your home, your car, your club memberships, your expensive trips?
This is what is required by most that call themselves “Christian.”
I have done it and I still have more to do, but at least I have done the most important part, and I have following Jesus Christ my Savior as the Bible teaches all that are willing to do so.

Confessions of a screwed up middle aged man: the shallow Christian

Yesterday, after the primary results were released about Arizona and Utah a blaring fact was made clear. Christianity is no longer a true faith, but a group of people living within a machination that they use as an excuse to feel they are redeemed, saved and able to be welcome in heaven.
I decided to make a small comment on a radio personalities Facebook page. It was clear and to the point. That point being that Mormons, a group of people that have been convinced by another book that their founder added to the Bible, in other words a cult, showed more knowledge of the true Bible then those that profess to be “Christian.”
Let’s just look at this last Tuesday’s primary results. Per Pew Research, 53% of the people of the state of Arizona say they are “highly religious” (http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/02/29/how-religious-is-your-state/?state=alabama). Now Utah is said to have 64% that state this, but we must also note that Utah is the home of the Church of Latter Day Saints, and as was point out above have added to the Bible, which is seen as a cult by Christendom (http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/02/29/how-religious-is-your-state/?state=utah).
Now as I have pointed out in a previous post. Donald Trump fit the description of a false teacher (https://dreamwalker1960.com/2016/03/07/a-true-reflection-of-2-peter-2/). Now as was shown to me yesterday there are those that think just because Mr. Trump does not profess to be a religious person he cannot be called a false teacher. Is his actions those of the world? Yes they are, then he is of the world. Does he profess to be knowledgeable and command your attention? Yes, then he is a teacher and since he does not follow the Bible he is a false one. A false teacher is a still false even though he is not of a religion and turns you away from the truth of the Bible.
Now that we have the ground work established. Here is the percentage of the vote for a Donald Trump the false prophet and for Ted Cruz the man who is human, but is a better reflection of Jesus Christ than Mr. Trump ever will be.
47.1% or 249,916 people voted for Mr. Trump in Arizona.
24.9% or 132,147 people voted for Mr. Cruz.
Now this is from a state as shown above is said to be 53% “highly religious.”
Now let’s look at Utah with a Mormon population that is 58% of the state per https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_Utah.
Donald Trump got 14.0% or 24,864 people
Ted Cruz received 69.2% or 122,567 people
This is how the polls should look when all those that call themselves “Christian” vote for the person that is the closest reflection of Jesus Christ.
NOTE: Since Mr. Kasich has shown he supports Homosexual marriage (see first Republican debate) he is on par with Mr. Trump and not Mr. Cruz.
This vote is both a blessing and curse. For God has given the citizens of the nation the ability to show their belief in God and their faith in Him by choosing the leaders of this nation. When we do not vote our belief in God or His Son the Lord Jesus Christ but for our personal wants, desires and lusts; than the voter is voting for sin and the world and are showing the curse of the vote, not its blessing. So they are showing that they are shallow Christians, or as the Bible says that which they are, which is hypocrites.

Eyes Wide Shut

Sorry to borrow this title, but it is fitting. This is about the lukewarm Christian (Rev. 3:14-22). These verses are a snapshot for the majority of those that call themselves Christian within the United States of America.
Jesus states that He will spew you from His mouth. There are those that believe that once you are saved you are always saved. This to me is one of two verses directly spoken by Christ that says otherwise.
The way people act through free-will is a direct bearing on where they stand with God. It is made clear in these verses that if you do not tend to your faith and believes that you can be cast out by God. He goes on to say that these people are rich monetarily, but spiritually they are poor. This again reflects those in the US when compared to the rest of the world.
But why are they poor in spirit? Because they are not being taught about God correctly if at all. People need to go to church. People need to read the Bible. People need to learn how to act their faith for most are hypocrites because of their behavior.
As an example, breaking the speed limit. I remember a car passing me going sixty in a forty-five only to see them turn into a church for services a few minutes later. Per Titus 3:1 , we are to obey the laws of the land and thus honor God.
People need to do as Jesus said in Revelation. Either to turn toward God and embrace that they are what they say “Christian.” Or turn from God and no longer call themselves Christian for in actuality they most likely are not and know that they will not be welcome in heaven, and then the eternal life that is beyond Christ’s return.
