For several years now I have watched and heard some of the most demonic, bizarre, sensual, earthly and new-age philosophies seep gradually into MANY mainstream christian churches of the world. European countries; Australia and New Zealand; and the largest churches in North America; especially the USA. I could write for weeks/months about the many different worldly ‘pinches of leaven’ mixed with the True Gospel I’ve read/seen from what I thought were solid Godly organizations. I’m seeing and hearing more and more everyday in Contemporary Gospel music as well. Could this be the great falling away written in 2 Thessalonians 2? I ask this because why would anyone who claims the name of Christ, want to add to or take anything from the Word of God– the Holy Scriptures. The LORD God gave many admonitions throughout the Bible about adding to or taking away from HIS Holy Word: Deuteronomy 4:2; 12:32 — Gal. 3:15 — Matt. 5:18-19 — Rev. 22:18. These are just a few of the many.
Three reasons I discovered for “changing” the True Gospel according to the LORD God’s Holy Word!
- it make the makes the Gospel more pleasing to the hearer
- it’s politically correct and morally easier to accept
- it stirs human feelings and emotions, making people feel good and believe “it is ALL about me” after all
TRUE GOSPEL— The loving gift of redemption the Creator of everything visible and invisible, the LORD God Almighty gave to us; a sinful, selfish, cold-hearted, lust-filled mankind; came through the shed blood of His only Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He’s shared His character with us through His breathed out Holy Word. Then filling the redeemed with the Holy Spirit. I so desire to share this message with anyone who will listen or read. I prayed last night, before getting into bed, and asked our Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus to show me from His Word how He would have to share the glorious True Gospel with others.
THE CHOICE IS YOURS
The Living Water and The Bread of Life = Pure Truth of the HOLY WORD
Waste treated bottled water and Corn Beef on moldy rye = The lies/deceit/heresy of the world’s new Christianity and it’s leaders who would rather give you philosophies, new age thinking, or the God is love message all the time
This morning, when I woke up, a verse came to mind. “now unto Him who is able to keep you from falling and to present to faultless before the Throne of Glory, to our Only Wise God and Savior be glory and majesty, dominion and power both now and forever and ever. Amen.” (Jude 1:24-25) Now I know it’s not verbatim from the Bible so some of you may pooh-pooh this; but, it was not extra biblical revelation stuff or a profound prophetic event, it was simply the answer to my prayer. As I write this I’m smiling because the heretics, apostates, evil, sneaky, slimy, glittery, pleasant-sounding words that are “lies from the deceiver himself” can not— I repeat CAN NOT draw a blood bought adopted child of the One True G-D away from our Father and Lord Jesus!!
My sincere desire is that all the brethren of the True Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ is: To hold to the only true standard of teaching: the Holy Bible
not a watered down version, not a twisted version, not a verse out of context version; all these with even a pinch of leaven added to “spoil/rot” the Holy Scriptures. ♥Streim
