Counterfeit Christians

 

They talk like the Christians they claim to be,

but what they do is contrary to God’s word.

~~~

 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers,

transforming themselves into apostles of Christ.

And no wonder!

For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.

 

(2 Corinthians 11:13-14 NKJV)

  1. I think many people feel that if they believe in a “higher power” they are doing enough…people confuse being spiritual with being religious. And religion is seen as a negative thing in general. Strange times. ~ Sheila

  2. I was wondering what’s become of ‘Christians’ period…last night…when I had the honour of attending a city-wide meeting to hear ‘Back to The Bible’ teacher, Dr. John Munro…of Charlotte, N.C., during a Canadian tour. Dr. Munro teaches the Word with great wisdom, fiery conviction, truth, respect, and humility. The church ought to have been packed by the hundreds to standing room only. Instead, only a ‘remnant’, turned out to hear this tremendous pastor’s encouraging exhortation of the Gospel. What does this tell us about believers today? Not only that many ‘Christians’ who show up on Sundays may be counterfeits, many more are asleep, passive, and unhearing! The sad truth…as Dr. Munro also noted…is that many professed believers and followers of Jesus today have adopted the world’s ways instead of being ‘salt’ and ‘light’. Many think God’s Word is outdated…when in fact His Word is the only ‘life line’ between nere and eternity. “The grass withers…the flower fades…but the Word of the Lord endures forever…”

  3. By their fruits… It’s weird how Christianity has become such a fad. People talk about God’s love, but don’t live it. Many people believe, but so few actually follow.,

  4. Whose side is God [god] on?

    *I suspect that a most common response might be: mine or ours. * *

    Each faith and every group holds to their claim on God – god as their own. Few if any groups or sects seem willing to share their possession of their God – gods with other faiths or sets of beliefs; by which I mean to say: are willing to freely extend ownership to others of the very same God – gods they hold as their primary God -gods with other, holding onto differing belief-systems. [yes, I do understand a willingness to share so long as they accept MY beliefs].

    And yes; everyone; even atheist and agnostics have their own gods. Pride, Lust, Greed, Wealth and Power, along with Sexuality, & Pornography are in there own way gods to a great many people. As ones God-gods tend to influence who and what we are; who and what we choose to be, and have a huge influence, even if not holding outright control of our thoughts and actions. I hold that this fact is undeniable.

    Even within the realm of christianity there seems to be [must be?] multiple Gods. This is provable by the thousands of differing sets of christian faith -beliefs. Yet truth is singular, so either there is just One True God, with His One set of True Faith beliefs; or Christianities God is just another god among many other man-made; man chosen gods?

    How can one know this?

    Because even simple logic ought to lead everyone to know and understand, and conclude that each God or [god] must have its own set of beliefs. Can any God [god] hold differing views [often even contradictory] on the same defined issue? No; this is simply an impossibility. Except of course for the New Agers whos common claim is its only TRUE if I say its true. Still, Simple Logic denies this philosophy of self-interest being the only right judge, and holds that [any] One God – god can and does hold only One view per defined issue as being the truth of that defined issue; because truth itself is and must always be only singular. Saying otherwise; even choosing otherwise, cannot and does not alter this reality.

    So, whose side is God-god on?

    God is on Gods gods side. It cant be any other way.

    What does this do to YOUR understanding of your God-god? being The True God? **

    *Malachi 2:10* Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why then doth every one of us despise his brother, violating the covenant of our fathers? *

    *

    *Mark 12:29* * *And Jesus answered him: The first commandment of all is, Hear, O Israel: the Lord thy God is one God.

    God Bless you my friend! **

  5. “For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him” 2 Cor. 11: 4

    This verse describes very well the current state of RELIGION today. We are confronted with two different understandings of Jesus and we have to choose one of them. In fact we must choose between two Jesus’s, one true and one “another Jesus”, a false Jesus who, if elected, will lead people inevitably to another demonic spirit and another demonic gospel. Are you following the wrong Jesus . http://lifebyjesus.wordpress.com/2013/09/24/for-if-he-that-cometh-preacheth-another-jesus/
