(Mark 14:21 KJV) The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! good were it for that man if he had never been born.
(Mat 26:14 KJV) Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, 15 And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver. 16 And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.
Many people have OFTEN conveyed to me that they are dismayed that there are Crooks still in the church as well? And they ask why the clearly bad pastors and bad pastors allow these crooks to remain in their midst. Tell me who your friends are and I will tell you what you are like yourself now too.. Some falsely seem to think that just cause a person professes to be good person, a follower of Christ that he or she is to be believed now and that they will do good and not bad.. How easily they also do forget about the Judas type persons, those persons who love money the root of all evil, and the things money can supposedly buy for them, sell themselves for money to the devil, but their mostly stolen too money it does not buy permanent happiness for even them.. Nor do most people who win lotto find permanent happiness, but rather more misery it seems.
(John 12:3 KJV) Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. 4 Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him, 5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? 6 This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.
HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE TO BETRAY JESUS CHRIST TOO?
(Luke 17:1 KJV) Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! 2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.
If you encounter crooks in your Pentecostal, Baptist, Brethren, Catholic OR Protestant church now still, you are better off not to associate with them any more, for zebras do not change their stripes and neither did Judas change now as well.
I too often rightfully do not really worry about what is happening solely in the world, but rather mainly what is happening in the Churches, for judgment begins in the house of God. God is still coming for a church without spot and blemish.
Sadly in real life both God, Good and bad preachers coexist but presently the bad preachers seem to outnumber the good ones. No one is above the law, No one. Human rights abuse, Citizen abuse, substance abuse, tax payer’s money abuses, tax evasion, abuse of the laws even by the Pastors, elders, deacons, church members, the police, civil and public servants, professionals, accountants, lawyers, politicians, contractors, business persons, school teachers, all still need to be fully exposed and prosecuted under the law too. https://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/06/24/no-one-is-above-the-law/
One of the worst things you can do is to think that such a person, spouse, relative, family member, pastor, politician is a nice guy, OR ANY INSTITUTION, CHURCH NOW AS WELL and so it is worth being worshipped, praised.. well cause very shortly God will show you really what even the person now is really like, a sinner like all the rest of us.. and the political party, organization, church you worshipped.. If you also do try to maintain you are a good person now as well, God will not let that false pride stand before him as well and he will show to you and many others what you really are still are like.. For God is a jealous God and will have no false idols NOW before him.. God says without me you can do nothing, nothing good that will last permanently, that the canker worms will next not destroy as well.. I have seen so many good guys in my life, some have been my close good friends, but real life next showed to us all what they really were like next too.. sinners. https://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/09/07/sinners/
Exemplary Public exposure and prosecution of the unrepentant guilty persons per God will and standard serves everyone’s best interest.
(John 10:7 KJV) Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
(Acts 20:28 KJV) Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
(1 Pet 5:2 KJV) Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;
(James 2:16 KJV) And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
(Rev 2:4 KJV) Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
(Rev 3:19 KJV) As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
for thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself always..
Specifically Trinity Pentecostal church LaSalle, TPC email@example.com , firstname.lastname@example.org ; and it’s pastors, pretentious elders, they call them deacons, are merely another of those too common pretentious Christians Churches in name only. I have attended it many times too. They are more of a local religious social club, and not a valid Christian gathering with real personal Christian good deeds.. TPC they are part of the PAOC, Pentecostal Assembly of Canada group, run it seems by by empire oriented hirelings, to provide economic support for their own pastors.. and they clearly are not here for the good welfare of the sheep. of the flock, their members, or attendees. While Jesus commanded his disciples to go into the world and make disciples of men, they now rather do use the opposite approach of asking you to go to their church, and of course to bring your money along with you for otherwise clearly you will not be welcomed. They do have a heavy false unbiblical emphasis of tithing, https://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/05/28/secret-tithing/, as an essential part of church membership, and it clearly and wrongfully seems it does not matter to them if you behave next as a non Christian you likely will not be displaced, disciplined unless you do not give sufficient tithing to the church. I am totally convinced that greed, and a real lack of real faith is why many preachers preach tithing, and I wonder if they do even fully practice it, do they even for a start give a portion of the tithe to the local poor people as also required in the laws of tithing in the old testament? I did not find many of them in TPC as being rather real Christians myself too. It seems to be often fleshly , men run and not Holy Spirit led too. https://postedat.wordpress.com/2010/01/09/and-who-do-you-follow-jesus-or/ ‘Let another man praise thee and not thyself.. and check if what is said is really so now too.. and all this now is nothing new as well. (Acts 20:31 KJV) Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. 32 And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. 33 I have coveted no man’s silver, or gold, or apparel. 34 Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me. 35 I have showed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive. https://postedat.wordpress.com/2009/09/15/too-often-misleading-preachers/ If you can’t trust the chief shepherd, who can you trust?’ Yes, the Bad pastors, bad elders, continue to exist cause likely their supporters are bad too. (Jer 5:31 KJV) The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will you do in the end?
It is also true that one can test the real spirituality of a preacher, any Christian is as to how he responds to money, how he treats the salvation of the Jews, and also how he or she treats the poor people now too! (Judg 2:11 KJV) And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and served Baalim: (Jer 9:14 KJV) But have walked after the imagination of their own heart, and after Baalim, which their fathers taught them: (Gal 2:10 KJV) Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I also was forward to do. (Mat 10:8 KJV) Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
The free gospel is a Biblical fact!
(Rom 3:24 KJV) Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
