We are all bad and sinful and a disgrace in God’s eyes. He is Holy and pure and He isn’t going to contaminate heaven by allowing sin enter it. Sadly, many or most people even in the churches still still do have churchianity without Christianity. False religion is everywhere these days. 1st John 4:1 teaches for believers to try (test) the spirits, to see whether they are of God or not
The Bible now still also instructs us as believers to judge everyone, even all professing Christians with “righteous judgment” (John 7:24). We are also clearly now to separate from carnal believers who indulge in sinful living, and from those who attempt to justify sin (1st Corinthians 5:11). Romans 16:17 reads, “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.” Biblically, we are also still supposed to expose all of these false persons, false teacher,s false prophets and to contend for the original Christian faith. Certainly, we are not wrong to question the actual future salvation of those who falsely do live contrary to the Scriptures. In 2nd Corinthians 13:5 the Apostle Paul questioned the salvation of certain members of the church at Corinth.
Matthew 7:22-23“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
Many who claim the name of Christ show little or no evidence of salvation by the way they live their lives. Often it is almost impossible to distinguish Christians from non Christians. Many who say they are saved are outwardly sinners showing little or no concern for spiritual things. For them Christianity is like putting on or taking off a piece of clothing. They put on their Christian appearance when it suits them, but leave it off most time. The question that naturally arises is: “Are all who call themselves Christians now even truly saved are going to heaven when they die, are they not guaranteed eternal security?” The answer is “No” because God is not being mocked,. Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man swath, that shall he also reap.
Jesus addressed this matter saying, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” (Matthew 7:21-23). “You that still do iniquity” and there is the root cause..
Do ask Him now as to what groups of religious people today that are doing wonderful things in Jesus’ name, and are speaking in Jesus’ name; but are still lost and on their way to Hell? Namely: is it the Lutherans, Catholics, Church of Christ, Messianic Jews, Greek Orthodox, United Church of Christ, Russian Orthodox, Episcopal, Presbyterians, Evangelicals, Pentecostals, Baptists, Plymouth Brethren and many more. What not just the Seventh Day Adventists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, Scientology, Christian Science, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Unitarian Universalist, Judaism Moonies, New Agers?
Or maybe the most deadliest of all these groups are those very loud professing Christians, the really big talkers, who even had propagated to all even the need of accepting the Lordship of Jesus Christ Salvation, who even go around saying, “Lord, Lord,” but they themselves now have never practiced what they had preached to others. Jesus plainly tells us why they were not allowed into Heaven, and if you have ears to hear and eyes to see, then please listen to Him and the holy Scriptures. These sincere PEOPLE rather still going to Hell will be shocked and dumbfounded when the Lord rejected them and why? They had spent their lives teaching in Jesus’ name and doing many charitable deeds in Jesus’ name but so what? How could this really then happen to them? What went wrong? They were so honest and sincere too and now they’re are being told they cannot enter into Heaven after all that? Notice this they do not listened to God too well, they never have as even now evidenced by the fact that Despite it is God who is talking they are even falsely trying to blame the Lord as being in error, so they will be even for this cast into the Lake of Fire forever..
Matthew 7:21, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”
John 3:19-21, 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. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
2 Corinthians 5:17, says “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
The genuine child of God is no longer the sinner that he was before he was truly saved. He is now next made different because he has been changed, by being born again, indwelled by the Holy Spirit and he lives the new spiritual nature. Clearly no one can honestly say that the Bible supports the idea of a person being saved and still remain as they once even were before. Nowhere does the Bible teach that a child of God remains comfortably living their past worldly life of sin that now falsely ignores all of the presence of the Lord and his claims on their lives. The truth that Jesus himself now teaches is falsely, conveniently ignored by too many. This new Christian life is one of “walking in the light” which means living a life that recognizes the destructiveness of sin. It means the new Christian wants to bring honor and glory to Christ by living a life now that is pleasing to God. “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.” (Matthew 6:24) God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?” (Romans 6:2) “For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit” (Romans 8:5). “. . . the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be” (Romans 8:7). “There is no fear of God before their eyes.” (Romans 3:18) “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? (Romans 6:16) “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble” (James 2:19). “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us” (1 John 1:8). If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9). “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13) “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” (1 John 5:4). “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. For he that is dead is freed from sin.” (Romans 6:6-7) “Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s” (1 Corinthians 6:18-20). “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” (1 Corinthians 3:16)
The Bible even also clearly warns all believers in Hebrews 12:5 that God WILL chastise even His own children. So no one is going to get away with anything. “But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons” (Hebrews 12:8). “For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world” (1 Corinthians 11:29-32). Romans 12:19 also clearly teaches that God will “repay” (Greek: punish) those who defraud and hurt others. This includes believers (2nd Corinthians 5:10). 1st Thessalonians 4:6 is a warning even to all believers not to defraud each other because God will “avenge.”; So don’t think that any Christians have permission to continue sin. On the contrary, all believers, especially Pastors or Evangelists now, they will be held more accountable to God if they are deliberately sinning in the knowledge of the truth. They have been enlightened. They know better. No one has God’s permission to live in unrepentant sin; so let them depart from all iniquity now.
“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin. And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and no sons. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave then reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live: For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, the we might be partakers of his holiness. Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yietheth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby” (Hebrews 12:1-12).
“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” (1 Corinthians 3:16)
” And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God be merciful to me a sinner’ (Luke 8:13).”
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)
“And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” (Hebrews 10:24-25)
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Roman 6:23)
