Mankind’s biggest problem is NOT politics.
Mankind’s biggest problem is NOT education or the lack thereof, nor the education in things not true nor right.
Mankind’s biggest problem is NOT cultural. “Arts”, entertainment, sports, hobbies…are NOT the BIGGEST problem.
Mankind’s biggest problem is NOT money/wealth NOR the lack thereof.
Mankind’s biggest problem IS, always has been since The Garden of Eden, and always will be sin, more specifically, the rejection of God and His Eternal, Holy Word for “any other way“.
How Did A Nation Founded By Christians Upon Biblical Principles As A Constitutional Republic Become The Marxist-Humanist Hybrid It IS Today?
IF you study history, human nature, and The Bible none of this is really all that surprising. It began quite early in America’s growth. Among the “wheat” of Christians was sown the “tares” of socialists, humanists, atheists, and evolutionists. The first Socialist settlement was started in 1825!!
So we should NOT be “surprised” when our leaders and educators became increasingly ungodly, Anti-God, and Anti-Christ.
With America’s leaders and educators being indoctrinated in the various forms of Socialism, Humanism, and Atheism we should NOT be “surprised” when America elected it’s first socialist President in 1912, Woodrow Wilson.
I will not rehash in detail the steady march from a Constitutional-Republic founded by Christians upon Biblical principles to where we are today, for MORE info and details see the below links: HERE , HERE , HERE , HERE , HERE , HERE , HERE , HERE , HERE , HERE , HERE .
The S.O.P. of Satan from the beginning. LIES. Via lies:
- QUESTION GOD AND GOD’S WORD
- SUPPLANT GOD AND GOD’S WORD
- ALTER AND THE REPLACE GOD AND GOD’S WORD
- ALTER AND REPLACE GOD AND GOD’S PROMISES
- ALL TO THE END THAT SATAN ALTER AND REPLACES THE LORD GOD AS THE RIGHTFUL FOCUS AND CENTER OF WORSHIP
- AND PUTS HIMSELF- SATAN- IN THE PLACE OF GOD.
The names and titles of these substitutes for true Christianity were/are:
- The Social Gospel
- Mind Science/Christian Science
- Possibility Thinking
- Positive Thinking
- Positive Confession
- Prosperity Gospel
- Kingdom Now Gospel/School of The Prophets
- The Charismatic Movement
- The Jesus Movement
- The Shepherding Movement
- The Vineyard Movement
- The Pensacola and Toronto Outpouring
- The Laughing Revival
- Hillsong…and many more counterfeit movements.
What do each of these have in common?
- A watering down, altering, sugar coating, and replacing of God’s Word
- A watering down of Biblical holiness, separation for sin and worldliness
- A lack of focus on prayer, fasting, and seeking The Lord in Humility substituted with doing so to be blessed and write your own ticket with God
- A forsaking of God, Holy Ghost inspired music and worship for a “form of godliness” that 100% mimics the world and is inspired/anointed by a spirit of rebellion
- An tolerance, then acceptance, then embracing, and now promoting of immodest dress, impure behaviour, and utter, depraved morality.
Some things to consider are, first, these Scriptures:
MATTHEW 7:6, 13-21
JOHN 8:31, 32, 36-44
ROMANS 3:10-18, 23
II CORINTHIANS 5:17, 21
II CORINTHIANS 6:14-7:1
MATTHEW 6:21, 33
Is it CHRIST-LIKE to make false statements about someone? Especially someone you haven’t seen at all, and heard LITTLE from since 1977?
I used the term Christ-Like for 2 reasons:
1. To drive the point home.
2. A lot of folk PROFESSING to be Christian who do NOT POSSESS Christianity at all.
JOHN 13:15, 17
JOHN 14:6, 15, 21, 23, 24
I JOHN 5:2, 3
ALL of this has led currently to THIS:
The Equality Act and the Rise of the Anti-Theological State
The passage of the Equality Act would mean the death of religious liberty. It would force all religious institutions and citizens to prove to the government’s satisfaction that their convictions merit constitutional protection.
Will America sacrifice religious freedom for the sake of newly constructed sexual and gender identity liberties? We will know the answer to that question in short order, and the prospects for preserving religious liberty hang in a dangerous political balance.
The legislation known as the “Equality Act” represents the greatest present threat to religious liberty in the United States. The House of Representatives has passed the legislation twice—in 2019 and again in February of this year. The Democratic majority in that chamber has forwarded the bill to the Senate, which is soon to begin debate over the bill. President Joe Biden campaigned on a promise to sign the bill, and his administration is working hard to see the bill approved by the Senate and sent to his desk for signature.
The Equality Act represents a defining issue for the entire nation. The act would amend the Civil Rights Act to add sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity to protected classes covered by the bill. The scope of the bill is vast, covering housing, employment, public accommodations, education, credit, and all programs receiving federal funding. No aspect of American public life would be unchanged, and the bill would invade the private sphere as well.
The Church of The Lord Jesus Christ use to THUNDER AGAINST THIS!!
Sin IS still sin.
And while there ARE degrees of sin, ALL sin separates from God and any sin will damn a soul to Hell…
BUT today’s “church” has so watered-down, so sugar-coated, so altered The TRUE Gospel of The Lord Jesus Christ that themes of sin, Hell, Biblical Holiness, Living Separated from Sin, sinners, and worldliness, Biblical Righteousness, True Christian Love, Judging and Judgment, Repentance…
Plain, Sound Doctrine has been neglected, rejected, and in some “churches” Biblical teaching, preaching, and doctrine are NOW being railed against as being “bigoted”, “homophobic”, “narrow-minded”, “non-PC/non-multiculturalistic”, and “hate speech”.
Today’s “church” derides what they lampoon as “clothes-line preaching” (The Bible calls it Holiness and is VERY detailed about it).
Among the sins that a Thrice Holy God declares to be eternally sin and that WILL separate the sinner from God eternally IN Hell include, but not limited to:
GAMBLING: THE BEING A FOOLISH AND UNFAITHFUL STEWARD OF WHAT GOD BLESSED US WITH
CURSING/PROFANITY: WAS EXTREMELY RARE, TO POINT THAT IT DID NOT EXIST IN THE CHRISTIAN’S LIFE AT ALL, NOW THERE THOSE WHO REGULARLY, CASUALLY, AND DAILY CURSE AND CLAIM TO BE CHRISTIAN…NOT KNOWING THAT SUCH A THING IS IMPOSSIBLE
Today’s “church” instead of thundering against sin and wickedness now uses euphemisms to sweeten and soften what God and His Word say about it with humanistic, worldly, carnal, PC-Approved terms, such as:
GOD CALLS IT ADULTERY AND FORNICATION, AN EGREGIOUS SIN AND WICKEDNESS. PC EUPHEMISMS FOR IT: SHACKING UP; SLEEPING TOGETHER; HAVING AN AFFAIR; CHEATING; COHABITATING; IN AN INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP; FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS.
GOD CALLS IT SODOMY, AN ABOMINATION, AND GREAT WICKEDNESS. PC EUPHEMISMS FOR IT: HOMOSEXUALITY; LESBIANISM; SAME-SEX ATTRACTION; AN ALTERNATIVE LIFE-STYLE; TRANSGENDERISM; NON-GENDERISM; GAY.
GOD CALLS IT LYING, A DECEITFUL, AND WRETCHED SIN, A BREAKING OF COVENANT AND TRUST. PC EUPHEMISMS FOR IT: OPINION; “MY TRUTH”; A LITTLE WHIT LIE; ALTERNATIVE FACTS; NUANCE; MISSPOKE/MISSPEAK.
GOD CALLS IT MURDER, THE BRUTAL TAKING OF INNOCENT LIFE. PC EUPHEMISMS FOR IT: ABORTION; ETHNIC CLEANSING; EUGENICS; MERCY KILLING; SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST.
GOD CALLS IT MARRIAGE, THE FIRST INSTITUTION OF SOCIETY, THE BEGINNING BUILDING-BLOCK OF CIVILIZATION; NORMAL; NATURAL, MORAL; RIGHT. PC EUPHEMISMS FOR IT: OUT-DATED; OLD-FASHIONED; PATRIARCHAL; MISOGYNIST; UNNECESSARY; QUAINT, SLAVERY OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN; NARROW-MINDED.
GOD CALLS IT CHURCH/CHRISTIANITY, THE BRIDE OF CHRIST. PC EUPHEMISMS FOR IT: (SEE MARRIAGE); BIGOTED; RACIST; NARROW-MINDED, UNNECESSARY; HYPOCRITICAL; BARBARIC; EXTREMIST; DELUSIONAL.
GOD CALLS IT DRUNKENNESS/REVELLING, LASCIVIOUSNESS, CARNAL, AND GREAT WICKEDNESS. PC EUPHEMISMS FOR IT: SOCIAL DRINKING; BLOTTO, BUZZED; HIGH; STONED; BLITZED; TOASTED; A VICTIMLESS CRIME, AND NOT EVEN A CRIME ANYMORE.
GOD CALLS IT HONESTY, INTEGRITY, PRINCIPLED CHARACTER, MORALS/MORALITY. PC EUPHEMISMS FOR IT: WEAK; NARROW-MINDED; LEGALISM; STUFFY; CALLOUSED; BEING A SUCKER; A GOODY TWO-SHOES; “JUDGE-A-MENTAL”; INTOLERANT; HATEFUL; PHOBIC; OUT-DATED AND OUT-MODED.
When one considers the wicked path of “the church” is it any wonder that America is NO Longer a Christian nation that is a Constitutional-Republic but is now a Secular Humanist, pig-sty of Socialism, Sin, Tyranny, and Oppression?
We, The True Church- those who have truly repented, turned FROM their sins and sinfulness, turned whole-heartedly TO The Lord Jesus Christ, and live their lives BY God’s grace, empowered BY The Holy Spirit, and in complete harmony WITH God’s unchanging Word- WE should NOT be surprised when we see ALL this happening. When a nation forsakes God– God forsakes the nation.
As both a preacher’s kid, and now personally in the ministry for 46 years I have seen all the aforementioned wickedness IN the church, and in the pulpit even on much of a regular basis. This should NEVER be.
The Three Types of Churches Today.
Revelation speaks of the 7 churches that God addresses in The Last Days, since God says EVERYTHING better than I can all I will do is link to it (see the words “the 7 churches” above), and will condense it down to only 3 Types of churches…
The Wicked “Church”.
This “church” is rampant with all the sins herein discussed, plus more. They not only have pleasure in doing and being wicked, they encourage others to wickedness, and then celebrate what they falsely call “liberty“. They claim “we are not under the law– we are under grace”…yet they do NOT remotely know that grace expects and requires MORE of them! They claim that “the law has been abolished“!! These charlatans are not only deluded and damning their own souls to Hell, they are gathering an innumerable host to populate Hell with them!
The “Enabler/Complicit Church”.
This “church” is weak. Lukewarm. Having a form of godliness, but denies the power thereof. They may not (openly) endorse or engage in the lewdness of The Wicked “Church”…BUT when someone stands up and speaks out against the wickedness The “Enabler/Complicit Church” then joins the chorous railing against the speakers of God’s Biblical Truth, rather than in anyway denounce the sin. This lukewarm monstrosity is sugar-coated, mamby-pamby, watered-down, powerless, and generic, and Christ-less.
The ONLY time they “flex their muscles” is if a true, genuine saint speaks the clear, simple truth AGAINST sin. Then this Enabler/Complicit “church” will roar AGAINST truth, and defend-n-deflect FOR wickedness. The Bible TELLS the real Christians that from this phony church “turn away“, “come out from among them and touch NOT the unclean thing“.
THE TRUE CHURCH OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
This church IS THE True Church, (and, NO, it is NOT the Roman Catholic “church”, which is described in much detail in the Book of Revelation as being the “Great Harlot Church”). This church recognised their sin and sinfulness before a Holy God. We humbled ourselves before the mighty hand of God, we prayed, we sought GOD’S face, and in true repentance we turned FROM our wicked ways UNTO The Lord Jesus Christ. We’ve been forgiven of all our sin, and cleansed from all out unrighteousness. We are NOW new creatures IN Christ Jesus, old things have passed away, and ALL things are made new. It is NOT by works of righteousness that we have done, BUT according to God’s mercy and grace we are saved by and through faith in the completed work of The Lord Jesus Christ. We now walk in The Newness of Life IN Christ Jesus. AND we stand IN the gap, and make up the hedge, we ARE watchmen on the wall, and we deliver God’s full message, even of impending Judgment.
The Conclusion of The Whole Matter.
Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 King James Version
13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
“Brother Larry, I don’t like the fear of God. I don’t think we need it for today.”
ALL The Bible IS The Eternal, Immutable Word of God.
“Yes, but I don’t like the fear of God anyway…especially when it means I need to be and live holy before The Lord.”
Ok, you don’t like the fear of God, do you like the LOVE of God?
“Oh yes! I love hearing about the love of God.”
15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
16 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
17 If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.
2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, AND keep his commandments.
3 For this the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
The bottom line is that the vast majority of the so-called “church” is wholly illiterate of The Bible, has NO desire to seek God, NOR His Word, and is more comfortable in THIS world and NOT too concerned- yet- about the world to come.
Too many so-called “Christians” are only interested in their personal comfort- and could NOT care any less about being made conformable unto The Lord Jesus Christ. These lukewarm, carnal, sin filled “saints” barely care about church attendance, let alone care about living the Holy Life that God COMMANDS them to live.
BUT…one day they will care. One day when they stand before an Almighty, Thrice Holy God they WILL care a lot…but then it will be too late. Today is the day of salvation; NOW is the time of repentance. One more time telling God “No” may be your LAST time.
