For a lot of people these days their too often false version of mere Christianity seems to consists of Having a blog with the word Christian and their name on it, or going to church 3 times a years and for some others it is going Sunday morning.. but not to any of the prayer meetings, or the Sunday night services.. and that is all it is it seems to be for many.. then others seem to wonder why these people have gone astray and are so much in error now too.
But my own version of true Christianity is significantly deeper, and broader as well.
Firstly I accepted the personally need to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and personal savior from all of our sins as well nut I also believe in the need of Sanctification, the Baptism of the Holy spirit where one next is equipped for God’s service, God will and plan for their life, including all of the charismatic’s gifts now too.
I also do believe in the need of all Christians to have daily devotionals, Bible and prayer time with God preferably both morning and evenings, starting and ending the day with God, and where God can personally speak to us, teach, direct us some more. Just as I believe in daily repentances, confessions to God the admission of our sins now too
I belief when the bible says the just shall live by faith now that includes each and every person, they are to trust God to supply their needs, wants, desires, to live their life based on God words, his instructions to them, not based on falsely following after other men or women, or one’ supposed personal inclination, supposed talents.
I rightfully do believe the same equal rights now of all persons, of all ages too, and in voluntarily, unenforceable, mutal submissions to any Christian persons, pastors, elders.. and I do not believe in any enslavements. hierarchy pecking order etc.,,
I also do believe in the personal need of appropriate evangelism in love firstly, our being able to share, to explain , to teach to others the biblical the reasons for one’s Christian based faith, beliefs.
I also do believe in the need of all Christians participating in both social actions and political action now too. We all do need to be really concerned, involved personally and as a church in helping the poor and needy people starting in our own church, neighborhood too. I clearly believe in guiding, directing, instructing the political leaders to make the right choices, decisions, laws now too and insuring that we elect the best persons available for the job, not necessity Christian ones even.
Having a good time, being self centered, selfish, acquiring all the material goods, pleasure one can have is certainly not what being a true Christian now is all about too.
Yes I also believe that Christians can only marry another really Christians and that all Christians cannot divorce, while they temporarily can get a separation, for proper Biblical counseling mostly.
I rightfully and clearly now still do not believe in having the wife as the boss, head of the home, thus her having all of the say, the sole run of all things now too…
(Eph 5:23 KJV) For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
(Eph 5:24 KJV) Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
(Eph 5:27 KJV) That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
I also do not believe in taking any ostrich approach when we personally eye unacceptable wrong doings towards ourselves and others, and I do believe in asking all of the bad persons to repent, to even next openly expose, rebuke them now even too for their wrong doings and repentances, even if they think they are somebody, a pastor , cop or politician , professional included.. God himself does not accept personal or human rights abuses, sins, unrepentances quietly.
Nor do I I automatically assume that all persons even any professing Christians now too now are are decent, honest, the real purveyors of justices too.
Jesus said by their own fruits not their mere words you can tell what a tree is like for a good tree brings forth good fruit, and a bad tree bad fruit..
Matthew 3:10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Matthew 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Matthew 12 L33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
So I too do have a right or the duty to be a fruit inspector
Matthew 6:2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
(Rev 3:19 KJV) As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
Proverbs 27:5 Open rebuke is better than secret love.
Mark 8:32 And he spake that saying openly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him.
(Mat 18:17 KJV) And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as a heathen man and a publican.
(Rev 2:4 KJV) Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
(Rev 2:5 KJV) Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
(Rev 3:1 KJV) And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.
Christian Lies, Divorce And/or Christian Divorce Remarriage, (as well as adultery, fornication , Alcoholism, drugs, smoking, gays) In the Christian Church are ALL still unacceptable. All of these mostly immoral, lying now persons, pastors who practice, counsel divorce, even the preachers, spouses, lawyers, judges tend to first need decent, real, pastoral counseling themselves.
