What is more important?


Why did I pose this question?
It is very simple. I know several within Christendom that feels it is more important to add as many names to the book of life as is possible. They have the mentality of get them in the door and get them to accept Jesus. This is extremely prevalent in Baptist. For they are of this man-made doctrine of once saved always saved. Yet I have never found anything in the Bible to support this. Now I have found in John 15, in 2 Peter 2, and Revelation 3, where there are those that were once counted in the book of life, yet they have fallen away choosing the world over God, deciding to bear no fruit, and living a lukewarm existents. All of which is made very clear that these shall be spit out thrown into the fire and wishing they had never been saved at all.
It is a clear message. It is in the Bible. There is no way to mistranslate the meanings for they are clear:
You can lose your salvation.
So what is important?
It is not just adding people to “salvation.” It is teaching them TRUE salvation, so that they will be an image of Jesus Christ their Savior. Teach those that ask God into their lives. For it is better to teach them to fish than to hand them one.

Really??


So the pro-Christmas community is in a tether over Starbucks new cups. Two of my friends on Facebook summed it up wonderfully. The First one stated we are not to get into the foolish arguments. This 100% qualifies as something foolish when compared to what truly needs our attention like the butchering of aborted babies, no decorations on cups is extremely foolish.
The second person said this: To not worry so much about keeping Christ in Christmas but instead keep Christ in Christian which is a 24 hour 365 days a year endeavor.
The mere fact that these cups are an “issue” shows fully that people do not truly understand what it is to be “Christian.”
Per the Bible, first and foremost we are to place God first in EVERYTHING. Every single aspect of your life. Not just a couple of hours on Sunday if you even do that, but in every word spoken by you, to how you drive down the road. What should be on your mind all the time is God, the Bible and His Son the Lord Jesus Christ. Once you do this the next part required by God is to treat all other as you would wish to be treated. Then the rest of the commandments follow closely behind.
Would you like it if your body was torn from your mother’s womb and then your body was torn apart for money? I didn’t think so. Why are people not upset that the Middle East is being purged of Christianity, the very birth place of this believe system.
So the next time people wish to get upset about something. Get upset at all those folks turning their backs upon God and how the world is more important to them than the One who created it all. As I have said before humanity would be extinct if not for the grace of God.
