Humility vs Cowardice

Amazing how often some professing follower of Christ will take his place before the cameras of an unbelieving world and cravenly declare Christ is wrong on some subject or other, and that the new poll driven, sin pandering, populist view is right.
They say with a straight face, and twisted thinking, that Jesus may have taught that He created the world in 6 days but “experts” in white lab coats say otherwise and so we must bow to unbelieving scientists rather than the King of Glory; or that while Jesus clearly calls pre marital, extra marital or gay “marital” sex, hell deserving sin; we know better today and Jesus just doesn’t understand the new “modern”, “tolerant” view.
Or, they will say, Christ may have had an exclusive view of Himself and His gospel, but “everyone” agrees this is wrong and all faith traditions lead to God.
Incredibly, these religious charlatans will present their views as the height of open minded mercy and humility… But it is NOT humility for a supposed believer to trample upon the word of God in order to exalt the faulty, everchanging opinions of frail humanity; it is, in fact, the epitome of pride, man pleasing cowardice and perverted pragmatism.
True humility is standing on, and unapologetically proclaiming, God’s holy, inerrant, inspired and sufficient word, while, when required, exposing the sinking, stinking, thinking of unregenerate men… especially if these men falsely present themselves as pillars in the Church.
Mark 8:38 Jesus said; “Whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father, with the holy angels.

Backbone!

When I suggest to my “progressive”, “liberal”, “left wing Christian” friends that I wish they would have the same passion for the word of Christ that they have for the words of Darwin, Marx, Freud or the Pope, they get a little hot under the collar. They seem surprised that I would dare suggest that Christ Jesus is not a post-modern, gay affirming, evolutionary, new age, ecumenical, socialist Catholic.

The discussions in this regard often result in me experiencing a severe blocking.

Of course, my friends don’t understand what is a at play here.

The devil is not creative but he is consistent.
He knows that if he can get a person, or a people, to question some portion of God’s word, he will soon have them questioning all of it. Where ever he can infiltrate with a hissed , “Hath God really said?” he will.

The myth of evolution is a case in point.

The incessant, clamouring and ever present propaganda of this fairy tale for adults is simply the result of satan seeking to undermine the authority of Scripture, and to rob God of the glory due for the all powerful, creative genius evident in the creation.

Unregenerate men, wallowing in their sins, are happy to embrace the unscientific, illogical ideas in the vain hope that if God did not create the world then they will not have to give an account to Him as their Creator.

Those young in the faith, or who perhaps have never thought through the implications of the appearance of death and pain before sin, may still hold to some Darwinian ideas, but those who know the Scriptures regarding creation and the sensible, reasonable and godly arguments against evolution, and yet dogmatically dig in their heels and choose the words of fallen men over the Holy One of Israel are playing a deadly game, with serious and eternal consequences.

Confession

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” – Romans 10:10, KJV

Confession is a good thing because when we tell the truth we let go of burdens and not have to think about hiding our secrets. Lying is a burden because you’re trying to cover one thing after another and then forgets the first lie. Imagine being in the interrogation room. You lie and then change stories over and over. No one will believe you until the truth comes out. Right? You may think you will get away with it but you will be held accountable for the private and public things you do on earth ( 1 Corinthians 4:5). It is why confessions are better. We confess to God with open heart and willing to be changed. It’s a stepping stone to being set free.

Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” – James 5:16, KJV

Prayer is a great way to talk to God and let it out to Him. Even though He knew already, still it pleases Him to hear you.

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, KJV

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” – John 8:32, KJV

Strife!

Prov 17:14 KJV

The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water: therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with.

Too often, people fall into the trap of strife. Someone may say something that rubs you the wrong way, and before you know it, there is tension, quarreling and division. The Bible tells us that strife opens the door to every evil work. It’s the enemy’s greatest trap to keep people from living in victory. But you don’t have to fall into the trap of strife, you can rise above it. Like Proverbs 17:14 says, you can simply drop the matter before it turns into something bigger than it needs to be. You don’t have to sink down to somebody’s level and argue with them and try to prove that you’re right. You weren’t put on this earth to correct everybody around you.

If you are going to be all that God’s called you to be, you have to learn to stay above strife. Instead of letting disagreements pull your relationships apart, look for common ground to draw you closer together. Look for peace. Look for ways to be a blessing. Stay above strife so you can enjoy your relationships and experience the blessing He has for you!

Where is your trust?

There are many misconceptions and illusions about money. Money can buy some things but not others. It can buy marriage, but it can’t buy love. It can buy four years in college, but it can’t buy an education. Money can hire a doctor, but it can’t make you well. Money can take you almost anywhere except to heaven. It can buy almost anything except happiness. Some people think money means security. But there’s no security in money. It fades away.

The Bible speaks of the deceitfulness of riches because earthly treasures can be wiped away so easily. Are you putting your trust and hope in things of eternal value?
