“Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!” – Matthew 23:24
Many churches are splitting up these days. They usually split into two groups: The group who believes in God’s Word and those that do not.
Those who do not, usually want to rewrite the Bible. With their “anything goes” message, their churches expand and their coffers fill. But sadly, those that follow them, often follow them in the WRONG direction and AWAY from Christ. And we know what happens to those who do NOT follow Christ.
Then there are those who choose to attend the church that truly teaches God’s Word. They love Jesus and follow Him closely. It’s not that they don’t occasionally fall, they do. But they ask God to forgive them, in Jesus’ Name, to forgive them and they ask Jesus to help them avoid sin in the future!
And that is just one of the differences. Those who truly follow Jesus know what sin is. They have been taught how to live and how to love. And they do their very best to follow Jesus closely and to live as God’s Word has truly taught.
But the church with their “anything goes” mentality and the people who stay in it WILL suffer the consequences of their choices. Pray for them!
“But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.” -2 Timothy 3:1-5
Prepare, Pray & Be Ready!
