A too typically It still seems a pair of professing self righteous Christians had made a chance encounter with a Pentecostal Pastor on the street, and instead of praising the Lord together , enjoying the benefits of their Christian heritage, this Christian pair started immediately to deliberately mock the Pentecostal pastor for his beliefs, and started to dispute their doctrinal differences with him, and it all made me to wonder where was their real love? So where was their real practice of brotherly love and Christian Hospitality? for it did not exist in their case, and so how could they now even profess to be Christians as well?
(John 15:19 KJV) If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
(John 15:23 KJV) He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
(1 John 2:9 KJV) He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.
(1 John 2:11 KJV) But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.
(1 John 3:15 KJV) Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
(1 John 4:20 KJV) If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
(1 Tim 5:8 KJV) But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
I have been shocked too often when I go to Liberal Christian churches to see manifestations of open Rivalry, Jealous, Bitterness, and even hatred amongst the attendees, even in the same family now too and it makes me think why these same people now wrongfully do think they will even make it, are going to heaven next..
Here is something else I cannot understand how this can happen. I know a professing Christian father who will feed the other kids, and he will give money to help his own brothers and sisters but he now still will not give money support his own children.. or is he really by this act not supporting his wife that he rather hates? or was he basically still only a typical self centered person?
(Mat 7:15 KJV) Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. 24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
The devil, demons and demon seduced professing Christian persons falsely, wrongfully take false delight in slandering, abusing, bashing others, even the Pentecostal Christians and show the sad truth that they do not have any real love for others. Net posters like Walter, Polycarp, BWT, others included now. One Cyber bully was unaware that in my blogs I can note the posters IP address and other details.. and he used over 4 different names of both genders too, to post lies about me, to attack me, turned out he was an insecure, bad, jealous relative of mine even.
One thing for sure I have observed that where there are sheep now there are also many wolves, for where there are real Christians there are also the the pretenders amongst them now, today as well. The pretender, imposter, wolf in sheep clothing do now show up for all kind of reasons even to seduce the sheep. They masquerade as pastors,, assistant pastors, elders, youth ministers, Bible college students now as well.
But a close examination daily reveals these pretender, imposter, wolf in sheep clothing really have not changed, they are self centered, unloving, tend to lack compassion and consideration for any others.
AT TIMES even the Internet blogosphere lives up to its billing as the new frontier of FREEDOM OF SPEECH, religious and political discourse. But too often the blogs mainly still turn into an open sewer of rumors, lies, libels and adolescent sins. Bullies and Cyber Bullies like to tell the lie that slander, libel, bullying is an acceptable free right of expression of the internet cause they are liars like the devil their father.. it never is.. Slandering, lying about, calling a specific person false names, personal attacks, even on any public forum is still unacceptable now even if you are a Christian, a Plymouth Brethren one now too. http://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/09/25/lies-slander-personal-defamation-on-the-net-be-warned/
(Mat 5:22 KJV) But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
(Mat 18:6 KJV) But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
(Mat 18:7 KJV) Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!
“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.” -Romans 16:17-18 KJV http://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/09/19/dispensationalists-it-seems-to-compensate-for-their-often-rejections/
