Christianity Is Not a Cult, It’s How It’s Taught

Standard

I know I’m stepping on some toes. Good!! People need to wake up! I’m so sick and tired of hearing people say they left Christianity for this and that reason. Stop making excuses; you left because you were persuaded to by your god or by someone else! You left because it is what you wanted to do. Stop blaming people, the church, and Christianity! When you put your salvation in the hands of your leaders and other people then negativity and disappointment is what you’re bound to get!

The Bible says “everyone who cries Lord Lord will not enter the Kingdom.” You know why? It’s because they aren’t living according to His will. They are the hearers, not the hearers and doers. They are the double minded, they are the wishy washy people, they are the ones trying to straddle the none existing fence, and they are the ones mocking God. They are the leaders and those who warm the pews Sunday after Sunday. The leaders teach well and they act the part very well, but many aren’t living according to God’s Word. The one’s sitting under their leaders are going to church to please their pastor’s and NOT God the Father and Jesus the Son! They are blind by the truth!

People must wake up and stop blaming the church when you SHOULD have the church within you! Where you attend or go is ONLY a place of worship to gather and fellowship. The church is within a Saint twenty four hours a day.

Many people go to churches of man and NOT churches of God, then they want to blame the church for their disappointments and bad spirits in the churches. Most churches of today are businesses about the mighty dollar and NOT our Mighty God and Lord and Savior! Churches of today allow anything into the church. The churches are ran more worldly than anything else. This alone tells you it’s not of God! Leaders are living any kind of way, speaking all kinds of trash from their mouths, and doing everything they know is against God. Yet, people are sitting under their leaderships praising and worshipping these leaders. They can’t see anything wrong with what’s going on and they are offended when you tell them the truth! If it’s not scripture then it’s NOT of God! When people know Jesus for themselves they should know better and do better! It’s not about pleasing man, it’s all about pleasing our Lord and Savior! Stop getting angry because of man when it is who many of you are worshipping and praising. When you worship and praise man expect to be let down!

Many church leaders are controlling their members. They literally tell them what they can and can not do. It’s because they are being taught as if it’s a cult. They are under the leadership of someone who isn’t under the leadership of Christ. When leaders make it all about self and material prosperity they leave out Christ! They only say enough to make people think it’s about Jesus when “the proof is in the pudding.” People must wake up and read the Bible for self! Don’t go to hell following people who aren’t following Christ. Stop allowing yourselves to be brainwashed and bamboozled! False leaders will definitely be charged, but you too will pay the prize for following him or her!

There are many people who can’t see the truth, because as I have said many times before, they’ve made their pastors their masters! People are led astray due to emotions and feelings about their leaders, churches, etc. Their leaders are saying things to “tickle their ears,” but doing nothing to feed their souls. Your soul salvation isn’t the responsibility of your leader, because he or she can’t give you salvation. Your salvation is your own responsibility and it’s free; the price has already been paid by Jesus Christ! Your leader knees will someday bow before the Father and the Son just like yours! Don’t let your leaders lead you to hell!

Will you continue to believe and put all your trust in man or will you begin to truly trust and believe in God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit? Don’t allow your leaders, anyone else, or anything to lead you to hell. The devil has his angels and they are working for him doing whatever they can to get you to lose your soul for this world. Don’t let it happen to you. Stand up for Jesus and stand firmly on HIS Word and NOT the word of man! People willfully are being brainwashed, because they subject themselves to the word of man and NOT God the Father! People have given their leaders a position belonging ONLY to the True and Living God the Father Almighty!

Making Your Pastor Your Master

Standard

Yes, I’m on this again! Too many people in today’s churches have made their pastors/leaders their Master. They have put them on pedal’s acting as if they are God. Stop praising and worshipping the creature and start praising and worshipping the Creator! Your pastor’s knees has to bend like yours, they are servants just like you; NOT the Savior! They may be some of your god’s, but they aren’t the God Almighty, the Master, the Great I am, the Savior, at all!

Those pedal stools some people have put them on will cause them to tumble right into the pits of hell. The reason why is these leaders act like they are God. They are not!!! They act the way they do, because this is how hey are treated. Many have become puffed up and vain.

God isn’t pleased with what is going on in the churches today. Some things are completely out of order and totally against God. If your pastor is doing the right thing they would not allow any ole thing in the church. The stuff going on in some of the churches are the same things going on in the world.

Some pastors are ruling and controlling their member’s lives. They are telling them what they can and can’t do. They are telling them where they can and can’t go and who to socialize with. When pastor’s are controlling the lives of their members they have been allowed to go to far. People are brainwashed by their pastors. People need to read the Bible and seek understanding for themselves.

Most pastors are living way above their members. Some member’s are struggling giving their last while their pastors are living good lives. Something is wrong with that picture. Many of the churches don’t help their members when they need it and really don’t do anything for the community if they can’t make a profit. This isn’t the way the church should be.

Although they go to church faithfully, many members are still babes in Christ. They haven’t grown since accepting the Lord as their Savior. Most people in today’s church are still on milk. They haven’t grown because they aren’t seeking the Lord for themselves, instead they are seeking it all from their pastors. The meat they are being fed isn’t to help their spiritual growth, but instead it’s to edify their Pastor’s because it’s coming from them and NOT the Word of God. Therefore it can’t be ingested into their spirits, because they are still babes. How can a Shepherd lead his Sheep, when He isn’t truly a Shepherd of God? It’s impossible when God’s not in it! The Bible says ” the blind can’t lead the blind, less they both fall in the ditch.” People really need to seek God’s face for themselves if they TRULY want to make it to Heaven.

It’s disgusting and sickening to see how most of the pastors are being praised and worshipped. People are too busy trying to please their pastors until they can’t focus on God, because it’s NOT what they are being taught. They aren’t being taught how to live holy, how to activate the powers within them that God has given to us all, they don’t know demons and the supernatural is real, because they aren’t being taught any of this in today’s churches. God is still in the healing business and He’s still a miracle worker, the problem is people don’t believe, because people are walking by sight and NOT faith. Their eyes are on their pastors and what they can see with the natural eye, because it is what they are being taught.

Pastor’s today are too busy building up what they have made their kingdoms which are their churches/sanctuaries. Churches are trying to out do one another. They are too busy preaching material prosperity, but not at all focused on seeking souls for the Kingdom of God. They are too worried about their kingdoms down here on earth.

When you go to a church and they have ATM’s in the church, they are asking for bank statements and check stubs, they are blasting you for the amount of tithes you pay, they are charging you to sit in particular places during service, etc THEN YOU SHOULD HAVE SENSE ENOUGH TO KNOW SOMETHING IS WRONG! THIS ISN’T ABOUT GOD’S BUSINESS, IT’S ALL ABOUT THE CHURCH BUSINESS OF MATERIAL PROSPERITY. Pastor’s have made it all about money.

Jesus is coming back and He’s going to charge Pastor’s many times over for leading their flock astray, but He’s also going to charge the people for praising and worshipping their Pastors as if they are God. If someone doesn’t make it in it’s no one’s fault, but their own. It is up to each and every last one of us to get to know Jesus for ourselves, develop a daily relationship with him, and to live according to His Word. The same Pastors being praised and worshipped have to live according to His Word like us all. As I’ve said before and it is from the Bible “we can’t get to the Father unless we go through the Son.” The Son isn’t your Pastor, He’s the Son of God!

Are you Serving Your Pastor or Jesus

Standard

I wanted to write about this, I experienced an incident this weekend where someone I know needed someone to talk to. I was flabbergasted at what I heard. I believe her story, because I see this very thing going on in churches today.

I know some people will get mad about this post. Good!!!! If you’re mad then it means it sparked something within. All I pray is people wake up before it’s too late. People must stop worshipping their leaders. I believe you give honor where it is due, but I don’t believe in worshipping no man.

The Pastor of this particular church has instructed his congregation not to speak to or be involved with this person for any reason and he openly talked about her during service. What? This is ridiculous and what is even more ridiculous is people are obliging this Pastor. It stemmed from the fact she didn’t make it from out of town in time enough to do a church chore, she was running late. The Pastor and his crew called her in and gave her the fifth degree about it. She was very hurt by the things they said to her.

He told his congregation don’t speak on anyone lives unless he judge it then they can or can’t. He told his congregation working for this church is their entire life, they don’t do anything or go anywhere else unless preapproved. Who does he think he is? He’s a modern day Jim Jones.

People better wake up to this nonsense. Pastor’s are leaders of their churches. They are over the church and are to set examples for their congregations, but they aren’t there to command and control them. These types of Pastor’s are out of line. They are completely out of order.

Who does a Pastor thinks he is telling people they don’t have the gift to prophesy, he’s the one doing that and no one else better do it unless it is first judged through him? Who is a Pastor to tell his congregation they bring everything to him and then he will pray about it and let them know the result? God gave us all gifts and the ability to pray for ourselves and over other people. He gives power to us all to work and walk in the anointing, it doesn’t come from man! People aren’t supposed to praise and worship their Pastors. They are supposed to praise and worship God the Father and His Son Jesus.

The problem with the churches today many leaders are abusers. They groom their congregations setting them up to be brainwashed. They are taking advantage of their congregations. They are preying on their congregations and they are brainwashing them into treating them like they are God. Well, they aren’t!!! People need to wake up and realize their Pastor’s knees will bow and their tongues will confess too! Stop making these Pastor’s your god’s and stop exalting them as if they are God. It’s a form of idolatry they are being idolized. These Pastor’s know exactly what they are doing. They know they’re being put on pedal stools. They know they are being praised, worshipped, and exalted. They love it. They love the power and control. Sadly their flock don’t get it. You worship no man, you ONLY worship the Father and His Son Jesus!

People who allow Pastor’s to control their everyday lives are people who aren’t connected to Jesus. I don’t care how much they think they are, they are NOT! Stop allowing your church Leaders to control your life, it is NOT theirs to control. People need to get their relationships with God and start worshipping the Creator and stop worshipping the creature! Time is running out.

STRADDLING THE FENCE

Standard

Okay, the very last post was about “choosing a side.” This one is going to go a little bit further. This post is for those who claim to be living their lives for the Lord, but instead are living lies. There are many people in this world who claim to be living right. They’re liars and the truth isn’t in them.

Many profess that God has called them into the ministry. God HAS NOT called everyone who claims to be called by Him. If you don’t believe it watch their walk. God qualifies whom He elect. No matter where you are in life or how low you think you are; He will first clean you up and then send you out to do His work. He’s not going to have you still doing all of your mess while preaching or teaching His people. No, that’s not how it works.

I realize we’re flesh and bone. I realize we’re subject to mess up. I get it! However, the Bible says in Matthews 26:41 “Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation, the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” This clearly tells you that you can avoid temptation. It is a personal choice for people to do things that are against God. It’s not hard to live Holy, if it’s what you desire. It’s hard when you’re trying to keep one foot on one side and the other foot on the other side. In order to do it right you MUST have a made up mind. Stop playing with God and stop straddling the fence.

Many claim to be preachers because they’re looking for and like the recognition. Plus they love the “almighty dollar.” They feel there is prestige in preaching before the congregation. They love being called the pastor (or whatever). They feel they have control and power. They love the fact that people are worshipping them. They think what they’re doing in the dark won’t come to the light, but that too is a lie. It will eventually in some way come to the light. This is why you see some of them addicted to substances, addicted to sex, addicted to money, depressed, suicidal, etc..etc.. Those things are NOT of the Lord. A person who’s truly on the Lord side and have that personal relationship with Him won’t want to do things displeasing to God. It’s in their hearts, minds, and souls to do the Will of God. They have convicted hearts and they mind what they do and say. They’re conscious of their thoughts and of how they live. This is the heart and mind of someone who’s living what they preach.

Don’t get caught up in the saying “you’re not perfect You’re made in His image, therefore when you’re living for Him, you’re perfect in His sight. DON’T use not being perfect as an excuse to continue to do wrong.

Society has it confused, they think because a person is going to church faithfully they’re living the life. Lies! This is why you hear people complaining about “church folks.” It’s because they see the walks of some of the people and the fact it’s not lining up with their talk. First of all some of them go dressed any kind of way, People, “come as you are” doesn’t in no way mean to go dressed inappropriately. It means to go even in your state of mind (broken hearted, hurt, depressed, suicidal, addicted to anything, etc). Not with your skin tights on, butts hanging out, boobs hanging out, see through clothes, or mini skirts. This isn’t limited to the church house. You will be aware of your appearance period. As a representation of God you no longer wear those things you once wore. You will no longer go, do, etc those things you used to do. Some men go inappropriate else well (sagging with your butt showing, etc). Things change when you have that personal relationship with God; they have too. You can’t be the same, there’s no way. If you are then you need to go back and check yourself, because it’s not lining up with God.

I mentioned in a previous post how these types of people go to church faithfully, pay their tithes faithfully, and go to Bible study faithfully, but it’s not out of love or personal relationships with God. It’s to please the eyes of man. They want to look holy to man, but knowing full well they’re far from it. Some have faked and played so long until they believe their own lies. They care what man has to say, but again; they’re not understanding that every knee shall bow to God. What they do should be to please Him, not man. Man has no heaven or hell to put us in, but the very man being praised will be put in one of those places. Basically, what I’m saying is they’re worshipping the wrong one. Man can’t save them, only God can. These types of people has great love for their pastors, preachers, bishops, reverends, evangelists, prophets or whatever they are called. Some titles are so long, it’s ridiculous. Yet, these people don’t give God His due. They give it all to their worship leaders. It’s because their hearts aren’t convicted and they don’t have a true relationship with God. Too many are playing with God, mocking God, and the bottom line; playing church. Pastor’s are preaching things that are clearly against God. God loves us all, but He doesn’t love the things we do. People got it mixed up. They think because God loves us all, He’s okay with the things we do. Lies!

Someone recently told me that it’s all about God’s love for us and that what we do doesn’t matter. This is a lie. Yes, it’s about God’s love for us, but what does that matter if #1 You don’t believe in Him and #2 If you don’t love Him back. Of course it’s about His love for us, but we must embrace and accept that love in order to remotely in anyway choose to worship Him. Because He loves us; it doesn’t give us a free pass to live any kind of way. Him loving us doesn’t mean He love us so much no matter what we do we will go to Heaven. NO! If that was the case what is the purpose of serving God? I know He died for us and through his death our sins were forgiven. However, it doesn’t mean a person can do whatever they choose and still go to heaven. The guidance has been left, it’s up to us which side we choose.

People want to make excuses for everything, but excuses will not work. You can make them all day, but at the end of it all, we can choose to live in a way that when we die we get to live again or we can live in a way that when we die we are dead. The choice is ours to make. One huge problem is people DO NOT want to give up the ways of this world. They’re simply not ready too. They feel they have more they want to do and think it’s all about doing those things. They want to keep on sleeping around, cheating, lying, ducking, dodging, tiptoeing, and sneaking around. They want to keep on abusing drugs, stealing, being lovers of themselves, and doing everything that is against God. This is not how it works. God said in the Word, He don’t want us lukewarm (straddling the fence). He’d rather we choose to be either hot or cold, but not lukewarm. I believe the greatest problem of all is the fact people don’t really believe in God. They can’t see or touch Him so in their minds He REALLY doesn’t exist. They say they do, but it’s clear they don’t. If they did they would live their lives completely different. Stop straddling the fence, today may be your last time to get it right. Look at the ways of this world and all of the things happening in this world, it’s only going to get worst.

I’m sure some people feel that I’m judging, but I am not. God already left instructions. I’m only telling the truth. Those who consider it as judging are those who are still of the world. They are straddling the fence. One day will come when you won’t have the chance to choose. I pray at that time you’re on the right side. Blessings to you, you, and you.
