Is Jesus Christ the Son of God? Is Jesus God? Was He conceived by the Holy Ghost and born of a virgin? Did Jesus literally die on the cross, descend into hell, and rise from hell, death and the grave according to the Scriptures? Is the Bible the inspired, infallible Word of God or a mere collection of mystical, historical and/or classical literature written by devout men?
In the world today, there is such a diversity of not only religions but also a diversity of Christianity itself through different denominations, churches, fellowships, doctrines and beliefs. In the world many times diversity is healthy. In business diversity brings down high prices by good competition which benefits society and the consumer. In Christianity though, diversity in the interpretation of Scripture, doctrine and beliefs is the result of sin.
We are living in a world today where truth in context is usually not being preached, taught, or lived.
We are living in a world today that has lost its direction. There are no moral rights and wrongs. Man is left to his own understanding, to choose his own set of values and beliefs. In other words, he chooses his own morality.
Today people commit crime, murder, abortion, adultery, fornication, homosexuality, premarital sex, lying, cheating, stealing, tax evasion; they covet, backbite, murmur, gossip and complain; they are filled with jealousy, envy, bitterness, strife and discord; they are drunkards and gluttons. Yet they say it does not matter because according to their morality, everybody is going to heaven because Jesus died to save sinners and we are all sinners.
Priests are committing fornication and murder (aborbtion). Pastors are committing adultery. Homosexuals, lesbians and bi-sexuals become ordained as pastors and priests. The “church” today is filled with people calling themselves Christians, yet living a lifestyle in direct violation of Scripture. To name a few such examples: Men dressed as women; women dressed as men; boys looking like girls, etc. Pastors having affairs with their secretaries; priests with nuns; board members cheating on their taxes; deacons getting drunk. Church leaders misappropriating funds and the list goes on. It is all being done and condoned in the religious church arena today.
Hype, glitter, excessive luxury, strictly entertainment (taking God’s glory to themselves) - it is all happening in the “church” field. On television it is common to see con men, hustlers and, to a degree, sincere men misleading people in Christianity.
What is wrong with the “church” today; with pastors today; with “Christians” today? Ministers are being led by the Spirit (which spirit?) to a new and bigger church with more personal benefits. Pastors are leading large congregations while their wife or children are an abomination to the Lord. Clergymen are living their lives not under the leading of the Holy Spirit according to the Scriptures (yet they claim to be led by God), but living their lives and making decisions for themselves and others according to the cares of this world. Churches of every name, doctrine, and creed from human imagination and evil inspiration are claiming themselves “Christians”.
There are no right choices, no wrong choices, no condemnation, no guilt, no accountability, instead there is “freedom.” Freedom to do, think, act and behave as one chooses. We are free to do as we please. We are Americans, independent and free. The American mentality states emphatically, “Do not tell me what to do or how to live.” “That is your opinion. That is your interpretation of Scripture. Don’t put that burden and guilt on me.” “He who the Son sets free is free indeed.” “That is not my problem.” “I do not care what He thinks. If He is so narrow minded, then that is His problem. I will do what I want to do.” “You only have one life to live so live and let live.” “Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow you may die.” “Life is too short”, etc., etc.
We are living in a world today where truth in context is usually not being preached, taught, or lived. The “church” is no longer the separate, pure and holy bride of Christ, but in actuality, the innate characteristics of society that are in rebellion against God, are part and parcel of most churches throughout the world today. We are American first, Asian first, African first, Canadian first, European first, Indian first, and “Christian” second. Instead of the “church” being the salt of the earth to preserve the spirit of Christ in the world today, in reality, society and the “church” have become one. There are no distinguishable characteristics (fruits or gifts of the Spirit), attitudes, lifestyles or beliefs.
Truth, at least partial truth, is being spoken, but truth alone does not bring salvation, and partial truth is a lie. Knowledge without reception brings deception and judgment.
People are asking today, what is wrong with the church...
A veneer of Christian appearance in walk and talk is like an actor performing in a drama. Both are an illusion to appear to be something that is not genuine, but are set in motion for deception, entertainment, profit and personal gain. A “form of godliness” is just that: an appearance of something not real, not genuine - a fake.
Today people are going to churches where the leadership has succumbed to the influences, powers and lusts that rule the world. The “church” (Christians) are coming under the judgment of God for their unfaithfulness, compromises and disobedience to the Word of God.
“Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. THE EFFECTUAL FERVENT PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN AVAILETH MUCH.” James 5:16 (Not the prayer of every “Christian”).
“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Romans 8:1 Note: There is no condemnation as long as we obey Christ Jesus. If we rebel against the Scriptures, then there is condemnation because we are guilty and come under the law of sin and death according to those who walk according to the flesh.
“For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them; In transgressing and lying against the Lord, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood. And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. Yea, truth faileth; AND HE THAT DEPARTETH FROM EVIL MAKETH HIMSELF A PREY: and the Lord saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.” Isaiah 59 12-15 Note: Today, like never before in history (other than when God destroyed the world with a flood for mankind’s abominations before the Lord), an innocent, righteous man proclaiming the uncompromising Word of God will become a prey to the satanic, evil forces working through the lives of the ungodly (religious Christians, sodomites, whoremongers, drunkards, gluttons, abortionists, women’s lib, etc.).
People are asking today, “What is wrong with the church, with people in the church, with the pastors and with the leaders? What is wrong with the Gospel?”
Ladies, gentlemen and fellow believers, let me clearly state, that there is nothing wrong with the Gospel, the Scriptures, the Word of God. It is just not being preached in context as Jesus spoke and taught it.
Webster’s Dictionary describes a cult as “a system of religious belief.” It defines a counterfeit as “to imitate; to copy without authority; to forging; something false or copied that pretends to be genuine.”
The problem in the world and the church is that we are living in a generation which is under the rule of the prince of this world; the father of all lies. We are driven by the lusts of the flesh. We are living in the last generation (I believe). It is a generation where even the very elect will be under the influence of lying spirits, false doctrine and cult Christianity. Mark 13:22 “For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect” (the elect are those who choose to follow the Scriptures and determine by faith - which is a living relationship in obedience to Jesus Christ according to the Scriptures - to not be led astray). II Timothy 2:15 “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
Today in societies around the world, the majority of the Christian “church” is living in CULT CHRISTIANITY; false doctrine. When one is living under, and chooses to live by, partial truth, then one is in deception and the grace of God (not including the grace of time where the spirit is still in the body and not subject yet to the final judgment of God for those who continue to walk in deception and disobedience until physical death occurs) cannot do its work to mold one into a “new creation”.
People choose to live under a system of religious beliefs that imitates, the Word of God/Jesus Christ. Today many people choose to live under partial truths proclaimed by their churches and leaders.
The danger with partial or half truths is that they are worthless. Partial truth is a lie; a counterfeit. In the world counterfeit money is illegal because it is used by people for personal gain without the authenticity and authority giving value to the note. Con men profit while the performers are masquerading as representing Jesus Christ and are preaching half truths in order to gather large congregations for their personal ambitions. Over time, sometimes their fruits manifest who they really serve as some con men leave the ministry due to marital problems or infidelity, misappropriation of funds, deception, lies, huge debts or large accumulations of personal properties (cars, houses, boats, real estate, etc.).
How does a person get entangled in a lifestyle of cult Christianity? One begins living a life with a form of godliness but denying the power thereof. One gives mental assent to and may teach the knowledge of God, without knowing God; without a living relationship with Jesus Christ.
“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” Romans 1:21-32
The Bible warns us that innately all people know there is a God. However, if they do not choose to subject themselves under the authority of Scripture, then God will allow them to be deceived due to their own disobedience. Set in the vanity of their own hearts, they become fools following the lusts of their flesh (selfishness) and making their own set of standards (religions/cults, including cult Christianity).
CULT CHRISTIANITY is being in subjection to, accepting, and/or following partial truth. Partial or half truth is a counterfeit. It is worthless. Counterfeit money cannot be redeemed; It has no true value. The currency is worthless, even if received in ignorance. It is up to the individual to examine it closely to ensure one is not deceived. As with money, it is up to the individual to examine the Gospel and ensure that it is being used properly in church, so that the grace of God can be applied. All the promises of God are conditional. Keep the condition of the promise and the promise is yours. Heaven is a promise of God. The condition to receive the promise of heaven is as Jesus said, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all they mind” (Matt. 22:37). Jesus said, “If you love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:15). Without the condition of servanthood (obedience under the lordship of Christ), then one receives another promise: “ And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death” (Rev. 20:12-14).
Not only can CULT CHRISTIANITY rob one of the grace of God on earth, but it can lead one to the second death. A person who is in a living relationship with God can discern a church, a pastor, or a person who is living under partial truth or CULT CHRISTIANITY.
In Matt. 1:18 the Bible states, “Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.”
In Acts 4:10-12 the Bible declares, “Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
The Bible warns us that innately all people know that there is a god.
Clearly the Bible states, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved” (John 3:16-20).
In Greek, the word “believe” means to adhere, rely, trust and obey. To believe in Jesus Christ unto salvation means to determine to quit rebelling against the Scriptures/God and now become His servant. Humility means dependence upon the Lord, whereas, pride means dependence upon self. God hates the proud but gives grace (forgiveness) to the humble (James 4:6; I Peter 5:5).
Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
II Timothy 3:16 states, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.”
CULT CHRISTIANITY is denying the validity of Scripture and following ones own philosophy, morality, and set of values.
CULT CHRISTIANITY is admitting and knowing the truth (as the devil or Adam and Eve did), but not following or obeying the truth.
TRUE CHRISTIANITY is a living relationship with Jesus Christ where Scripture is not twisted to allow one to continue in a life of rebellion or selfishness, but where one is truly born again.
