Modern Christianity Is Wrong By Jeremy Clifford
Modern Christianity Is Wrong. The Word of God is Right. We find in Romans Ch. 6.(1)What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? (2) God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? (3) Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? (4) Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. (5) For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: (6) Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. (7) For he that is dead is freed from sin. (8) Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:(9) Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. (10) For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. (11) Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. (12) Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. (13)Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. (14) For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. (15)What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. (16)Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? (17) But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. (18) Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
So often I hear so called "Christians" say that we are to love the sinner and not the sin. So many times I hear that from too many people. Sayings like these ususally come from those that do not show any Christ-Like behavior in their lives. While we are to love the sinner, it does not mean we are to act like this lost and dying world!! I do not hold the lost of this world accountable for their actions. They are lost and they act like they are lost. I was exactly like them before I accepted Christ as my Saviour. I actually blame the so called "Christians". We are responsible for the shape the world is in today. No where in God's Word does it say that after salvation, we are to continue and be as ungodly as possible. In fact , God's word states the complete opposite.
How come the modern day Christian acts, walks, talks like the heathen of this world. We say we have fellowship, we say we are Christians, yet we walk in complete darkness. So many people today are rubbing the name of Christ in the dirt. These people are completely lost, and their actions prove as such, and all the while they claim to be saved. The outsider looking in to Christianity, see how these people act, and they want nothing to do with Christ. Why would someone want to get saved if all they see in you is this world? True Christians are to be separate and different. We are to be that lighthouse, letting the light of Christ shine through us. When the lost and blind are groping around in the darkness, and they see that light, they are drawn to it. The Holy Spirit draws all of mankind to Jesus.. If you are walking in darkness, and there is no sign of the light of Christ in your life, then you are probabley still lost. If peolple around you can't see the grace, mercy, forgiveness, and the love of Christ through you as an example to this darkened world, You are probably still lost!!!
Modern Christians today think that God will be pleased with every lifestyle they choose to live. These so called "Christians" live ungodly lives, these so called "Christians" have a worthless testimony, these so called "Christians" refuse to read God's Word, these so called "Christians" do what is right in their own eyes and not what is right in the sight of GOD.
Our society thinks they are in some kind of great revival. Our society thinks that they are pleasing God, when in fact, their actions are grieving the Holy Spirit. Our own nation seeks temporal pleasures. While our own nation embraces sin and turns their back on a righteous God, the so called "Christian" sits by and watches millions that will die lost. The modern day Christian, often takes part in these sins that are destroying our country. The modern day Christian does nothing for the spreading of the Gospel, and does nothing for the cause of Christ. Christians are to blame! They lost are not going to step up and lead others to Christ. The lost are not going to live separated lives. The lost are not going to praise and serve the One that spared them from a literal death forever in Hell. Why would they.......They are lost!!!!!
I look around and I see so much misery. I look around every day and I see a world headed for judgment. I look around and I see fields that are white for the harvest, and no one ready to labor. My own service to my Savior will forever fall short of God's glory, but I desire to serve Him always. I need to always die to my flesh, bare up that cross, and follow after Christ. We so called "Christians" all must decrease, and Jesus Christ must increase in our lives...If we are to lead others to Him....
These so called "Christians" pick and choose what they want out of the Bible, and abandon the rest. For an example, there are men and women today that claim to be Christians, and these so called Christians would tell you that God made them homosexual. There are so called "Christians" that claim to be preachers of God's word, and they are living in openly gay relationships. I would like to say that these people, are in danger of the judgment!! They will die in their sinful lifestyle, blinded by Satan himself, thinking all the while God was pleased with their wickedness. I will never condone my own sin, let alone some homosexual's sin. They are claiming that God made them gay, and they are telling others that being gay is O.K. Our society, much like the Roman society back in Paul's day, are embracing homosexualality as an alternative to fulfill the lusts that they have. I ask you, do you think GOD will not JUDGE a "gay church"???? God will certainly judge those that claim to be
Christians, and never actually recieved the free gift of Salvation...GOD himself has said that those that claim to have served God, those that claim to have cast out devils in His name, are in fact lost and they will be cast into a place called Hell. (Get Behind me you that work iniquity, I never knew you...Will be Our Saviors response). God has promised that any nation that exalts the vilest of men, shall be wiped out and destroyed. Our nation is testing God, and when God brings forth His wrath upon this country because of it's vile affections, we will be getting exactly what we deserve. If you think God is anywhere near a church of sodomites, your truly deceived by Satan....God is not the author of sin...And God is a just God......This does not only apply to gay churches, this applies to the anyone that has never truly been washed in the BLOOD OF THE LAMB........You must be Born Again....John 3:3...
We as Christians are going to have to step up and stand in the gap. We that know the truth, need to share that truth with an otherwise lost and dying world. True Christians are to reflect Christ in their lives, not reflect this world. God's own word states that even the friendship with the world, is extreme hatred with God. God will not be mocked.... God hates sin... He truly hates our sin...God Can not even look at sin.... God has never been, nor will he ever be the author of sin..... A true Christian needs to exhibit the Love and Mercy of Christ...If we show a lost world the kind of love that Christ has shown us, then they would all be drawn to Him...So many people are looking for the truth, yet they look to the world for answers..They will not find the freedom from bondage with self-help books. They will not find victory in their lives with Prozac or Zoloft....They will never find salvation in any other name but Jesus...Christians need to seperate themselves from this world...Go out among them and be Ye Seperate....You don't have to become the world to witness to it...People need too see that Christ is real in our lives....Lost people need to see that we not only have victory, but we have True Joy. If Christians, Myself included, will die to the flesh and the things of this world, and put our focus on the things above...The lost will notice as long as the Holy Spirit is drawing them to Him.... Are you leading a Christ Like life, or are you reflecting this lost and dying world............????
God created a perfect world, and told Adam to stay away from one thing.....But Adam could not even stay away from the only thing forbidden in all of the world.. He simply broke this one commandment, but it was enough to bring sin, death, the flood and one day, another judgement to mankind..Even today, we can not be perfect enough to obey God's commandments.. We are each guilty of breaking at least one...That one sin makes us guilty of death and hell, but God allows us to come to him, if we repent of our lifestyle. If we repent of our sins, if we turn from our sins, and beleive that Jesus is the only way, then God's word is clear that whosoever (anyone) shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved....Not might.....Not maybe.....But SHALL be saved... If anyone is saved for a period of time (truly saved), then there will be that still small voice, there will be that conviction in your heart, that tells you HEY!!! You have been born again......Stop doing that which is wrong...Stop with the sin that will destroy, and seek the face of the one that saves absolutely....Be Ye Transformed by the renewing of your mind.....Bury the old man....And Keep Him Buried..............Praise God for His Mercy.......And Longsuffering...........
