Christian posers, i.e., those that claim to be christian because they follow Christ according to His earthly ministry, keep the Levitical & Mosaic law, are good people, repent of their sin, change their lifestyles…… are born-again……. and preach Israel’s kingdom gospel and doctrine – claim it as theirs today, always wonder what God’s will is for their lives.
“God gave you a gift, you’re very artistic, therefore His will for your life is to paint Bible stories or biblical characters”
“You are very good with children, therefore God’s will for your life is to teach children about the Bible”.
“You’re good at being pregnant, God’s will for your life is to be a mother”. ???
How many times have you heard mainline institutionalised “christians” claim things similar to the above quotes in relation to God’s will for their lives?
Truth be told, when I was “born-again”, everyone else’s “ministry” stood out as plain as daylight, according to those “in the know”, except mine. I didn’t fit into the “happy clappy, we are living by faith” brigade.
The longer I was “born-again”, the more I felt “nauseaus” at the idea because somehow it didn’t seem real to me – I just didn’t know why at the time. I perceived the “happy clappy, praise the Lord!” minions to be some of the biggest hypocrites on two legs. They just didn’t seem real, sincere or to be principled people. Sheep, parroting everything their leaders spewed from the pulpits. He said it is, so therefore it is.
Personally, I think the biggest cesspool of unsaved humanity to find oneself in is the religious cesspool. To my mind there’s nothing worse than being tied to self-righteous people who think they have arrived and who have an elevated status (in this world), but their belief system has a shaky foundation – at the first sign of trouble (like one of their leaders misbehaving or doing something really embarrasing) , everything comes crumbling down like dominoes, as if what they believe, and what props them up is solely reliant on their leaders. Jimmy Swaggart being a good example. For people who proclaimed to forgive and let bygones be bygones, Swaggart’s shenanigans sure had a way of emptying out the Poser Pews.
You won’t get one christian poser proclaiming belief in Romans 7, because it exposes their shaky belief that one is not able to renew one’s flesh. They can’t discern between a saved soul living in rotten flesh, or an unsaved person pretending that his/her flesh is/has been renewed, they look to the outer to discern the inner.
What grates me the most is that when you state a fact by confirming the REALITY of a certain situation – they do not like it at all, they call it being “negative”. But one has to acknowledge the true situation in order to resolve the problem, not so? If you cannot acknowledge you’re an alcoholic, there’s no way you will quit drinking. This world is rotten, and the majority are hellbound (reality, truth) – remedy : faith in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4. Posers take on this : “the world is rotten, but God is good, and people are inherently good, therefore God will not overlook them or send them to hell”.
Good people do not go to heaven.
It’s tragic what the devil has done to christianity. Don’t you wonder how posers and fakes are called christians today, look at Roman Catholicism. The pope, the Roman church has absolutely no claim on christianity, but you as a saved person, a member of the body of Christ – the true christian is none other than the filth of the world, the offscouring of all things.
“…….. we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.” – The Apostle Paul, 1 Corinthians 4:13.
Since satan is the god of this world – what would you expect?
Ever wondered what God’s will actually is for everyone’s life?
1 Timothy 2:4. Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
- Who will have ALL men to be saved, – (1 Corinthians 15:1-4) and
- to come unto the knowledge of the truth – 2 Timothy 2:15
