I am writing to you to clarify what you would consider a Christian to be. I spend some time surfing atheist sites to try get a better understanding of your perspective. I have come across some really nice people and some Jerks. I guess you could say the same about the so called Christian community.
You see… on many posts I see comments about Joel Osteen, Rick warren, the Pope etc… and criticism of their views and the hypocrisy of their actions. I agree. I do not believe these men to be Christians. I have read some posting where Mormons are now Atheists claiming have walked away from Christianity. Mormons were never Christians in the 1st place. They believe that you can become a God of your own planet and that Jesus Christ is a created being. For those of you with somewhat of a “religious upbringing” can you not agree that they do not believe is the same Jesus as Protestants do? Jehovah Witnesses think that Jesus is also a created being… actually they believe that he is Michael the Arc Angel and brother to Lucifer. Yet Both Mormons and Jehovah witnesses claim to be Christians.
Can we agree define what an Atheist is and what a Christian is and what a Heretical Christian (wolf in sheep’s clothing) is.
Much of what makes you sick about Christians is true and if you think it makes you sick can you imagine how I feel. Just imagine for a moment that I claimed to be an Atheist… yet went around to all you conventions proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ. You would certainly claim that I could not be an Atheist because my actions would not line up with my claim. I would be a hypocrite. Many of these Mega-Pastors and many no-name brand wanna-be “Christian’s" will spend eternity in the Lake of Fire.
I know many of you do not believe in what the Bible says, but let me cite a passage for you from Matthew Chapter 7 verses 15 - 23
"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'
Beware of false profits… who are they? I can assure you my Atheist Friends they are not you. Although you can probably guess where I think you will spend eternity that is not my focus at the moment. I will plea for your souls, but in another message. Please recognize that God will cast into Hell those who have not only called Him Lord, but even those who have preached His words performed many wonders and cast out demons in His Name. You cast our any demon lately? Of course not! Can you imagine the shock of the Benny Hinn types who will be cast into hell for selling Gods message? Freely received and freely given is not a standard by which they live by.
So who is God talking to here? He is talking about fake-Christians. We live in a time of The Apostate Church. I would say that 90-95% of the people you know calling themselves Christians are probably not Christians. This includes you parents, priests and pastors let alone those they “fellowship” with. If we go back to verses 13 and 14 (sorry you will need to open you bibles) we see that the gate is narrow and the path that leads to the gate is narrow. Therefore, either God is lying…. Or there really are not as many Christians in the world as the Barnum Group tells us there is.
So what is the point? Simple…. If you want to post about Christians and the Hypocracy, please do some research and understand what a Christian really is. In fact when the Bible was written, the word Christian was a derogatory comment… kind of like it is today. Those who Believed in Jesus Christ as the Messiah were know as followers of The Way.
Jesus Christ would never allow His Bride… The True Christian Church to become the whore (Apostate Church) that the world call Christianity today… but He did warn us it would happen. The Barnum group says there is no difference between Christians and The world…. The divorce rate is the same, the abortion rate is the same, the sex drugs and all other forms of sin are the same. I can assure you it is not. The True Body of Christ is not represented by wolves such as Warren or Osteen.
Perhaps it is time that we once again reverted back to naming the very very very small % of people who will spend eternity with God as those who follow The Way and not call them Christians.
I know I will be hated by some of you… but show this to you “Christian” friends and they would probably want to stone me. Most of them will say they are saved, but do not even know what they are saved from.
Do I have some sort of agenda in positing here…. YUP. To get to know you better and perhaps show you the odds are that you have really not had a true “Christian” experience. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life and there are few who find it. The way is difficult…. It is not some canned prayer of asking Jesus into your Heart because you have some God shaped hole that He needs to fill because He just loves you so much. If there are Billions of Christians in the world… then GOD is a liar… because he said there are few who find it. I want to help you be one of the few. The odds are against you “according to scripture” that you really found and understood the truth.
