Hello everyone! We are living in a day and time when being a strong Christian is required. We need to pray like everything depended on it, and it does. We need to search the scriptures so that we may know the truth, with so much false teaching going on out there. It’s not just false teaching on TV, the radio, or the internet, but it’s from pulpits across our country.
Mormons, Jehovah Witness, Seventh Day Adventists, Christian Science, Scientology, New Age, Buddhist, Hinduism, and on and on. Let’s not forget islam, which is not even a religion, it is a system of world domination disguised as a religion.
Christians are being killed by the thousands in our world today. All the while here in America we think that we should have freedom of religion because the Constitution says so. But, if you look at what Jesus said, “Blessed are you, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.” Luke 6:22
“If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.” John 15:18
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
Now my reason for sharing these verses is to remind you that it’s not supposed to be easy for the Christian in this present world. We are not to seek to be loved by the world, we are not to seek to please this world. Our one and only duty in this world is to please God! I fear that to many have gone after this world, many want to be Politically Correct rather than Biblically Correct. So, when a preacher stands his ground firmly upon Scripture many so-called Christians are appalled by that, because they have been so tainted by this world. They have been lied to by weak worldly preachers, who would rather please men than God. Who would rather collect a paycheck and retirement than please the One who should have called them into ministry!
God forbid that I would ever seek to please men! Men did not call me, men do not meet my needs, men do not decide what I should do and how I should lead, only the One who died for me and called me can do that.
It’s time for us to stand up for God and His Word in this evil godless world! Onward Christian Soldiers! Put on the whole armour of God, Ephesians 6:10-20, and STAND FIRM! Call a cult just that, a cult, if it is teaching a false doctrine then it’s a cult! Stop trying to please those who are in Scriptural error! Point out their error as lovingly as you can, but by all means stand your ground! Let God be concerned with the results, just do the right thing and trust God by faith, you may just be surprised in a good way.
