This is the result/outcome of men who don’t recognise, admit or believe to being sinners living in a sin cursed world, men who are Christ deniers, unbelievers – reprobates.
“Fix the problem/s yourself – DIY” :
“Move beyond polarization and the focus on “good vs. evil” and “us vs. them.” Consider the possibility that all of us are doing what we believe to be right based upon our beliefs, circumstances, and upbringing. Each of us has a place in our heart that wants only to love and be loved. As we focus less on blaming and judging “them” and more on supporting the highest motive in all people – including members of the power elite – we increasingly come to see that we are all one human family, and that we can choose to transform our world by working together for the good of all.”
Saw a billboard along the freeway on Friday morning stating, “JESUS LOVES YOU”. What came to mind? Unbelievers in general thinking, “so how come the world is in such a mess if Jesus loves you?”, New Agers thinking, “they (christians) profess Jesus loves everyone, but they cannot even get on with one another?”, “war in the name of christianity, namely the Crusades, so where’s the love?”.
Marshmallow Christianity with an extra thin skin who gets offended if you type in capital letters (to emphasise a point). Marshmallow christianity which seems to be offended by Christ’s death for one’s sins (all of them),so they have to repent of them instead, offended by His burial (time to wallow in the quagmire and weep because He was crucified), offended by His resurrection (apparently they found His body recently, besides God had to assist Him in the resurrection process too whereby He had to have faith in God to do so, otherwise He would’ve remained in the heart of the earth…).
Of course, it’s all part of the religious’ gospel, i.e., He loves you, so in turn you need to love Him in order to be saved…. It’s nothing short of a performance-based gospel – you must DO something in order to be saved, and in this instance, you must love Him. A total contradiction to what is stipulated in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (for salvation).
Question : Does God love sinners, those who are opposed to Him, His enemies, or does He offer amnesty to His enemies who are sinners in this current dispensation, giving them a chance to be reconciled to Him, in order for them to be His beloved purely by faith in the word of reconciliation, namely the gospel of 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, otherwise known as the word of truth mentioned in 2 Timothy 2:15 and Ephesians 1:13? Keyword : RECONCILING, present tense, not RECONCILED which is past tense. 2 Corinthians 5:19 : GOD’S MERCY CURRENTLY IN ACTION.
In a disagreement or war, does the winner love his enemies or does he offer them amnesty to become reconciled to him in order to love them?
Will a loving God send those He loves to hell for eternity? No. So who does He actually love then? Marshmallow christianity cannot discern between love and amnesty/mercy. You were once my hell-bound enemy, but because you have faith in what I did for you, you are now my friend, my adopted child, accepted in the beloved. You are now reconciled to me, hence I now love you.
The world, reprobates, Christ deniers, sinners – unbelievers, believe the solution to man’s sin nature and a sin cursed world is diversification, also known as “the new paradigm” which doesn’t hold to the fact that there is good and evil, but believes rather in “supporting the highest motive” in all people. The more things change, the more they stay the same, why? Because man’s heart is just as wicked and deceitful as in the past, i.e., the Tower of Babel.
How ethical and righteous or upright/righteous are man’s motives or highest motives in his natural, sinful spiritual state? Jeremiah 17:9 – The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
This is the very reason why people will always let us down, because their hearts are deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. The politician you voted for to “make things better” – guess what? His heart is deceitful above all things and is desperately wicked. But the religious believe that people need to glorify God, sing praises to His name, do good and be non-judgmental when it comes to doctrine and the ways of this world, not to mention be non-judgmental when it comes to those saved people who conform to this present evil world.
- Trusting Christ (and you don’t know according to which gospel) doesn’t and won’t save you. 2) Believing in Christ won’t and doesn’t save you. Believing He exists, won’t and doesn’t save you. 3) Trusting in your “faith” won’t and doesn’t save you either. Self-reliance won’t and doesn’t save your soul.
Trusting what He did for you on Calvary’s Cross and believing He was raised from the dead on the third day saves your eternal soul. Why?
Because belief/trust/faith in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, i.e., Christ’s payment for your sins is the unique requirement or stipulation for one’s salvation in this current dispensation.
Let’s look at the various beliefs as stated above :
- To most, the gospel has become “trust Christ period”. Question : Trust Him for what/based on what? To be your Lord and personal Saviour? In this instance, can you please confirm this with scripture?
- Believing Christ exists doesn’t save your soul either. Even the devils believe that He exists, and they aren’t saved.
- Trusting in yourself (what you can do) to be pleasing in the eyes of God, like worshipping Christ (as a religious pew warmer) won’t save you.
He did it all – so you trust what He did for you. What did He do for you? He died for your sins (past, present and future), He rose from the dead on the third day. He was buried – which confirms (a) that He died, and (b) that He resurrected.
The inanity of “trust Christ” (according to what?) propagators is rather limitless. What are they trusting Christ for – think about it carefully…… for their salvation? According to what? – trusting, future (receipt thereof), unlike those of us who have TRUSTED Christ – past tense, who have received it (past tense), and who are currently standing in that salvation (present tense) because we have TRUSTED (past tense) – they are still trusting Christ (present tense and ongoing). Makes one think, doesn’t it? Isn’t that why mainline, denominational, institutionalized Christianity has an ongoing, performance based gospel? Because they are still trusting, whilst we have TRUSTED and received it (salvation) and are standing in it (present tense). We own it, they are still busy trying to own it.
The “I am trusting Christ” (according to which) gospel propagators don’t believe the gospel saves, they believe it’s Christ that saves. So in effect what they’re saying is that Christ denies the saving power of His very own work on Calvary’s Cross, in tandem with His resurrection for men’s souls to be saved when they have faith in same. It’s like saying, “We believe in the person, but not what He did, what He did isn’t good enough to save us, but in effect what He is saying – “believe what I did for you”, so in their need to look super righteous, they change the gospel that saves men’s eternal souls – “Paul said it good, but I say it better”, not realizing that Paul’s words are God’s words, i.e., that of the ascended Christ Himself. One cannot improve on the ascended Christ’s words.
If only people would believe the Bible instead of making up their own half-baked theories, especially concerning salvation. “Trusting Christ” sounds very righteous and upright……… as well as hypocritical and…….. lame-brained. Much of the same people also believe that unsaved people who haven’t heard and believed the Gospel of Christ (1 Corinthians 15:1-4) aren’t headed for hell because God is just and loving and will take this point into consideration when it comes to their eternal fate. Chapter and verse please, and 1 Thumb-suck 3:10 just won’t hack it.
I’m still trying to find out where in the Bible it states that God wants us to have a personal relationship with Him in order for us to be pleasing to Him and for Him to save our souls. If anyone knows, please inbox me the appropriate scripture according to the Authorised King James Bible in context. Please note : 2 Imaginations 5:10 won’t cut it either.
Oh, how I cringe when I think back to the pew warmers turning around and telling me, “Jesus loves you” – like that made everything right – finally – happy in the knowledge that I was saved – not. I was still a hell-bound sinner, good for nothing, not worth the dynamite that could blow me straight into hell. My question used to be : How does one love Jesus? By telling Him so, or by showing Him? I tried to show Him, but I always fell horribly short of His holy standards and so I was caught up in a rollercoaster of non-stop guilt trips. How does one love Jesus when you’re always feeling guilty? In the end you either think He is a hard task master, or you think you’re totally useless and devoid of attaining human perfection, after all, what type of unction disappears after the rose coloured glasses have faded because you are the one measuring your “righteous” works, and by whose standards? Your own. Who is saving you, or trying to save you? You are. You cannot attain to Acts 2:45 in this dispensation, no matter how hard you try or try to convince yourself you’ve given all your wordly goods to the poor…….. and in fact you are following Christ according to money grabbing, self-righteous, mainline denominational, institutionalized preachers who themselves don’t practice what they preach who fail to rightly divide the word of truth and mistakenly apply Israel’s Hebrew doctrine to themselves. Wannabe replacement Jews who try to keep the law, not realizing that there are 613 commandments and not 10, who think being dunked in water makes one sparkling new again. I often used to meditate on this fact when I was a sinner – I didn’t feel any different after coming out of the water, I still thought the same, did the same things, behaved the same – nope, H20 cannot save your soul. I was still as biblically illiterate as I was before I was immersed and then ceremoniously declared saved. Wishful thinking.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son…….” The world under the Jewish Prophetic Programme whereby lost Gentiles had to prostelyse to the Jewish faith/Law Programme in order to be saved, where Christ was and will be the Messiah/King of an earthly kingdom, a world where both the Levitical and Mosaic Law held sway, and will be in effect once again in a future time. A programme that has been interrupted by the Dispensation of the Grace of God, where we are under grace, not the law. We are currently living in this time.
God gave His only begotten Son….. as the perfect sacrifice as opposed to the imperfect and continual sacrifices of lambs, goats, bulls and doves under the Levitical law, He is to be a sacrifice whereupon Jews will lay their sins and ask for forgiveness while they endure to the end.
God loves His creation, it is unique. He didn’t create this world for it to be destroyed by the devil. He is merciful and wants men to be in His will, to be reconciled to him – saved – on His Godly terms, not by anything any man can conjure up, no matter how good or respectful it sounds.
It’s God’s will that you become reconciled to Him.
