What Kind Of Christian Are You?
Good Morning World! I noticed the other day, correct me if I’m wrong, but if you are a white, male, Christian, this automatically gets you a racist, judgmental, hypocrite label, with a high probability of some real secrets in your closet. Unfortunately, all these type being human and all like they are, there is enough truth here to help it along towards the desired end.
This, in and of itself, is not really the problem. What we’re not really hearing is that to a similar, if not higher, degree, so is everyone else. There are no angels here. Believe. All human, all broken.
And if this lynch mob mentality doesn’t scare you, apparently you don’t realize what you are seeing. Or you’re a very bad person. Of course there is an agenda here. Who’s? Unfortunately, in furthering that agenda and with a spirit of a simpering supplicant, the Church has become this parody following some androgynous guy with a smile and a lamb on His shoulder. And if this fake representation of what Our Lord and Savior doesn’t make you angry….you need to check your salvation status ASAP!
Just sayin’, It’s a war and you can believe the enemy has their plan and it’s succeeding extremely well. You’d have to be blind to not see it. And you’re deluding yourself if you think that planting your butt on Sundays or sending your little check off every so often is doing what it takes to follow Christ. So. What are you doing about it? What kind of Christian are you? This is the burning question. The going Christian spirit flies under the banner of compromise and acceptance. Straight to hell. Neither do you know what you should even be doing most likely if this is news to you. Because your teaching has been weakened. Watered down. In numerous ways. Some old, some new. I said it was a war. So who’s the enemy? I know, the devil right? The antichrist. Etc.
Paul tells us in Ephesians 6:12 that, first and foremost, it is never humans! But that, furthermore (and this is key), it is the rulers, authorities, cosmic powers over this present darkness, and the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. But hold on. There are cosmic powers over this present darkness? What does that even mean? And they’re separate from spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places? Where is that? The sky? Have a look at this then:
9 But the LORD's portion is his people, Jacob his allotted heritage.
11 fLike an eagle that stirs up its nest, that flutters over its young, spreading out its wings, catching them, bearing them on its pinions,
You can plainly see why this particular passage among many gets glazed over with a quick answer when not just outright ignored. Much like the entire Old Testament. Which is so unfortunate! When looked at with the right eyes, it is such a source of building faith and knowledge. Of God. Of Christ, our Lord. And of giving us the right eyes to see so much deeper into Scripture than can ever be imagined.
The Heart of our most merciful and powerful, Living God. We are instructed further on who this enemy is and how to do battle. We’ll explore that further in the next episode. It will change the way you read your Bible.
Thanks for joining us in trying to know Jesus and make Him known in this polluted world.
I must get back On The Road To Find Out. Petra
