1 Timothy 1:18 This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;
19 Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:
20 Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.
Problem : Some have put away the holding of faith and a good conscience and have become shipwrecked.
Pauline Solution : Deliver such people unto Satan.
Current day Grace Movement’s solution : Continue to fellowship with them and defend them in the hope of putting them back on the straight and narrow.
Of course, this is totally contrary to Pauline truth.
Result : Leaven is left to grow unchecked – heresy is taught as fundamental truth. This is blasphemy. Anything you do or preach contrary to the truth of the Bible is blasphemy (dispensationally considered, of course).
Most do not know what warfare entails. They run away from it. They see it as harsh, confrontational. Unloving.
I remember not so long ago that I received a message from a sister in Christ stating that she loved me, but that it was time for her to leave Facebook. This was a blatant lie of course, she didn’t know how to tell me she didn’t like my confrontational style and that she was ready to “dump” me, so she lied and then unfriended me.
I thought that was rather funny. The fact that she went out of her way to tell me she was leaving Facebook and that she loved me, of course this was all done to appease her own conscience. Now I couldn’t be like that – shallow and express feigned love. Say one thing and do another.
I’ve clashed with myriads of Grace Believers, the latest being one who blocked me for causing strife on his timeline, regardless of the war for the truth. Poof – gone in 3 seconds hahaha. Oh well, if you prefer to uphold the teachings and testimony of a rank heretick who straddles both economies, it’s your choice. Some people can’t seem to get away from the “fluffiness” of their flesh, they enjoy being dumbed down and spoken to like 10 year olds. If you aren’t living in the “fourth dimension” or working for your spiritual sanctification – you’re toast, honey. Hastalavista, chicken.
Whatever happened to good soldiers of Jesus Christ? I guess they were swallowed up by the religioius system before they had a chance to manifest. Go figure.
Question : Is there anyone out there with a backbone these days? And by that I don’t mean egotistical, effeminate men who build themselves up by putting women down.
