The apostle Paul writes about having a form of Godliness but lack the power thereof.
Now people in authority in the established churches now days talk about the miracles and tounges not been relevant now days because they we fee only needed as a literal kick start to get the church going.
I would put it to you that when faced with forsaking Christ or die. These same church officials would be first inline like certain early heretics to turn tail and run to reject Christ.
This was the problem with with the early church and it is the church now. People want to control the church, Jesus, and the Holy Ghost.
Put everything in neat little boxes.
Signs and wonders brought the Roman empire into the church they will tell you and it is not for the church now.
In technical terms let me say what a load of manure. (Pure unadulterated crap).
Signs and wonders are here to stay, what was true about what Jesus Christ said two thousand years ago is still true today.
JESUS CHRIST THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY, FOREVER.
GOD THE FATHER THE psalmist wrote "is God a man that He should lie?)
Many people don’t go to church because they think that they are oh so, so intelligent. With their big houses, fancy cars, and all that money could buy. They recon that Jesus Christ is like any other superstition, well Mr intelligent fool you are hellbound. And that fear that wakes you in the small hours of the night you think it’s the worry about the economy and stock exchange, let me tell you it is the state of your eternal soul that is scratching your conscience, your body warning you are going to he’ll but you to intelligent to believe that Jesus even real.
YOU would rather believe that when you die that’s it there is nothing it ends there.
If that is what you believe I would say really what is the point of human life, if it is true then we are not any Bette than the beasts of the field and all the things we do to make humanity better then heck we may as well open up a production line and start killing other humans and feeding them to other humans after all we are just animals.
Seriously it is not church that saves you it never could nor ever will. It is the personal intense relationship that you as a human have with Jesus Christ.
No other can save you no other has the power to do this as nobody but Jesus Christ has paid the price for your soul. That’s right he had paid the blood redemption price for your soul a long long time ago.
When Jesus Christ was shown the door of the home the children grew up without Christ and had no moral compass, prayer & God’s word taken from the class room sin abounds
Murder and crime at an all time high because there is no spiritual authority in any "CHRISTIAN COUNTRY " and an enemy of the church encroaches in to our very homes, false religions and their apologists spread their filthy lies and the children of Christian homes are taken in because the unconditional love of Christ is not in the home His love replaced with the dross of humanities riches, and money and material things.
When the day of trouble comes these poor children of disobedience they do not know where to run because they have not been brought up in the ways of the Lord and the long and terrible highway to he’ll opens up to them and headlong they rush to anything that seems to offer hope.
While the church without true Godliness sits by lamenting the sin of the world but unable in anyway to help.
To lead the lost to Christ.
The best that they can do is invite them to a bingo evening or a bake sale.
Repent, repent, repent, fall oh man to thy knees acknowledge your sins and make right with God the giver of life.
Repent, repent, love your children enough to tell them about Jesus while there is yet time lest you find yourself weeping over your child’s grave knowing despite the minsters pretty words,you know in your heart that this is not true and it is more likely that your child is in he’ll.
What form of love is this that you give your child an eternity in the fire’s of he’ll?
Now your excuse is God will forgive all. NO where in God’s word does he reward wickedness
Your excuse for not going to church
God did bad things in the past.
Wrong God had nothing to do with the crusaders and their wars that was man’s idea
The Pope said.
I see no reference in Gods word to a human mediator other than Jesus.
Scripture is contradictory and confusing.
In the early church history
That everything knee shall bow and every tounge confess that
JESUS CHRIST IS LORD.
MEANT the following: –
1.) That you rejected Roman Authority.
2.) That you we’re willingly and knowingly with malice and forethought committing treason against the state and the divinity of the Ceaser.
For when you came into the presence of ceasear
You would bow down on your knees and confess that ceasear is lord.
NO IT IS NOT REPENT AND INVITE JESUS INTO YOUR LIFE AND THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL TEACH YOU.
YOU WILL NEVER BE CONFUSED BY THE LORDS HOLY WORD AGAIN
THE END OF THE SERMON GO IN PEACE.
As usual I well come debate, comments and discussion.
