In the gospels it tells us that there was some people in the times of the apostles that believed in Jesus yet still lived immoral and unholy. It also tells us that even the demons believe and tremble at christs name. Can you think of how many corrupt preachers like Jimmy Baker who might preach about the fear of
God. I am sure if the demons tremble that a corrupt preacher might know about having to fear God to. Isnt it possible that some preachers do preach about the fear of God because they like the demons have to fear him. Isnt it possible they are really not christs disciples as the pretend. Its been my experience growing up and attending church as an adult that many people who are proffessed catholic or christian live as immoral as the world and use their baptism or birth into a christian family as sort of a sheeps clothing. Like a wolf in sheeps clothing. Backsliders and not just backsliders but people pretending they are holy if anyone else is holy because they to attend or have a christian family.
I recall the catholics and christian in my childhood neighborhood. Each christian or catholic family had teens on drugs and fornicating in their home. The parents denying thier children are that unholy or shifting the blame completely to families not attending church. The parents seemed as nasty as their kids. I do recall innocent people but really the community church thing was just some hypocrisy that no matter the intentions just wasn't the holy church. It tells us in the gospels that we are not to let anyone in our home who discern doesn't have the teachings of Jesus Christ in them. Not just theology or bible study teachings but really having the word of God in their heart and the teachings of the Holy Spirit. The gospels also tell us that for someone to continue in sin after confessing the Lord Jesus Christ is like being guilty of his murder. That we are not to consort with , sit with , or even eat with christians or catholics who are fornicators,adulterers,liars,murderers,thiefs,robbers,fault finders,idolaters,and homosexuals. It tells us in Pauls writings that there people who were attending church and were baptised who were living worse then the gentils doing evils that even the gentiles condemned. Sounds a little like the incest and polygomy of the mormon. Even like the molestations of modern day. Don't even the gentiles condemn drugs and crime. There are many people who obey the law and do not use drugs because it is known they are dangerous and it is rebellion to use them. My parents were both unholy liars and did not honor the teachings of christ. Neither had any formal baptism or even attended church as I was growing up. Yet neither was using drugs or committing crime. They were and are still today persecution to me and an adversity against my faith in Jesus Christ. Their ways were very worldy and carnal and still havnt confessed christ in any worthy manner. Yet still today they have not committed crime the way some catholic raised children have and christian. I met 3 pentecostal preachers sons. Each one had joined up with biker gangs and did as many drugs as they could. Two were very disrought and poor the other had managed to earn wealth from truck driving. They all had been in jail and all had been addicted to drugs. A pentecostal radio show evangel attended a church local. I met his sons in a youth group. His two sons were involved with a gang and used drugs. The same assembly of God had several families who kids were on drugs and rebelling. I would not belong to a pentecostal organization ever. I only hope that I never have children or a family of my own that ends up as the many christian and catholic families have. So as the Lord forgives us we are to forgive others but until these people are ready to confess and truly live the life of Jesus Christ they are worse then those who don't believe.
These people are who make life the hardest for us. They are who slip in our homes because they have been baptised and attend church with their families. These people are who live in the community making it thier home and lying about the communion of the Lord and the holiness of his fellowship. They are who know that we commune with God and believe in his righteousness but betray us and live against us in the community knowing christs teachings yet still living as his advesary. There is no fellowship we can have with them so they work on jobs like spies and like shamers of his grace yet still wanting to recieve the same honor from us and expecting the same salvation we have. It's beyond my own words to describe. I could write a poem maybe to express my own views but nothing to really explain how seriously evil it really is. To think of what image we have fallen from as Grace and the true mark the Lord had set for Adam that we all fell short of. The life in the spirit we live is powerfull.To deny the calling as though there is no righteousness which is so great we cannot contend with is contending with the powers of heaven. I have no belief in the righteousness of man. What righteousness I know is in the Spirit of the living God. All day the Lord is the righteousness in me. Not my own flesh but the Holy Spirit who dwells within me. I am a living vessel of the life of christ not a machine or a political being which can be led to the left or to the right by mans laws and community. The justice I honor is the salvaation of Jesus Christ and the eternal rewards of heaven. I don't honor money or the political systems of this world. I know that God is going to rend to each what is due and that all will reap what they sow. For anyone to believe different is political to me and not the gospel. We must be true to our salvation and honor the Lord's instructions.I cannot write or speak as an authority as the Pope may but I can write and speak as a child of God and a free citizen of heaven. I believe in the reality of the spirit. In this world we have no home that is eternal but in heaven our home is prepared and will be eternally a reward for living righteous lifes to the end. Living as friends to this world and honoring the worlds home and its principles and precepts is jeapordizing our eternal rewards and home in heaven. So letting someone in our home that is not taught by the Holy Spirit is really letting in the world and all arrogance and evils that jeopardize our rewards in heaven. What a home is to God since we are his vessels not the rulers of this world is different then it is to the rulers of this world. We are not slaves of sin and sin has no rule over us. Yet those who do not believe or believe and still sin they are as the children of wrath and haters of God. Would you let someone in youre home God would not let in his knowing God is in you and it would offend him.
Even wealthy Mormons like Mitt Romney with all their wealth are still someone God would not let in his home. Our faith is built upon a rock not a stumbling block. We have the right to not belong to the world even if the world consists of our own family members and flesh and blood. They are still children of the world and thier father is Satan. Does Satan have a right to fellowship with us. The keys to heaven belong to heaven not to this world and all the rulers of it are subject to the powers of heaven in the same spirit that sealed our salvation. We war against the very same principalities which those who dont have christ teachings in them are followers to such as the Mormon church and even Local corporate powers or corrupt neighbors and the rulers of each town. Sam Adams of Portland , Oregon had many supporters would you let them in youre home even if they say they are christs. They are who support the gay mayor and support such an unholy community doing this. Though evil seems common here it isnt in heaven. There is no evil in heaven. We cannot be friends with its fellowship. Many people try and create an illusion that they were christian and still are even though they have been living as liberal advocates to the world. The church can't be an advocate to this world. There are many powers of this world that are only about markets and each community subjects its criminals and its poor to similar powers that are to conform the community to the corporate image of liberal hosts. There is only One God and his image has nothing to do with this world or his time. The powers that be are beyond the powers of this world. Even the sun is not subject to this world this world is subject to the sun. So in its entirety the kingdom of heaven is on its own time and all we do cannot be in fellowship with the worlds institute of fellowship.
I have met several catholic and christians who have dated non catholic and christian people. All to often I will hear from a non catholic or christian male that his wife is catholic or christian. Yet it tells us these woman were not to even let these men in thier homes let alone sleep with them.. I am sure in some way God does not forsake them but why would the Lord make them one with the world. When I was baptised there was a man converting because it was his mother in Law's death wish. He was a satanist he said and used to bring goats heads to satanic mass for sacrifice to satan. He was married to a catholic lady. Can you see how that is wrong. Even though he finally converted in his middle ages. That dont always happen and it was evil each day . We cant fellowship with catholic woman or men who live with and sleep with satanists or any christian who believes that because its lawfull to fellowship with the world its ok. The world fornicates and does all the immoral acts condemned by the gospel. These catholic or christian who date and marry the world are more than likely the fornicators and drunks the bible tells us not to even sit with or eat with or consort with. It says its not regarding the world because we cant leave the world but its regarding people who believe and yet still do these things. I will list some scriptures. I know we have to love the world but lust and love are two different things. I admit I have contemplated socially indulging with worldly females yet that was Solomon's fall and even warned about by the 12 Patriarchs in their testaments. I need God every second in these times to keep my heart and mind safe from the evils around me having power to discourage my faith or to stop me from working as Gods child not a robot or slave to this worlds money and perversions. Even my own family is against me as the world is against christ. So I do what I do in the Lord as an individual when I do it even though we are all one in the spirit no christian or catholic has ever really been there for me each day as a christian or catholic family would function. At times because of the way the corporate community is and the many divisions of church and the many imaturities of these times I have been left with little or no options but to live in rental rooms of people I know not and who usually arnt christian or catholic or live as liberal advocates of the same oppressors who persecute the church. Its hard to endure but christ alone was my fellowship in those houses . I believe much of the hardships in my life is do to people who believe but continue to sin. They know what we believe and persecute us a different way then the world does. Not thinking it serious christs crucifixion and really guilty of his murder like judas or the Jews who even seen his miracles but killed him for their own love of money and their own love of their own ways. I have not myself been sinless but I am not a drunkard,homosexual, liar, fornicator,adulterer,robber,thief,idolater,fault finder. Although for a time I stumbled over the detective training I did because it involved lying to the liar to catch them and prove their cons. Also it is very common for people in law enforcement and the legal community to be very immoral within the limits of the law only considering mans laws to be what Gods righteousness is about. This took me a few years to put everything out my way. I had to decide not to pursue the normal career of a corporate security investigator and instead work towards establishing a non profit detective service that doesnt involve secular investigators or legal community. Which I still today only are in the planning process pursuing other means to support myself. It is serious we are not the world to God. He is in those of us who believe and wouldnt hand us over to sinfull people who believe and still sin blattantly or in disregard of his crucifixion. We cannot repent twice and the original atonement for our sin was at time of recieving the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Gods Love is long suffering , mercifull and kind. We have a right to be left alone those who conintue to sin arnt our authorities no matter what job they do . Even if they are Governors only christ is authority and christ is who they sin against .
1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? 2 Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? 3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? 4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
5 For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, 6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. 7 For he who has died has been freed from sin. 8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, 9 knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. 10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. 11 Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. 13 And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. 14 For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.
15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! 16 Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? 17 But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. 18 And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. 19 I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness.
20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21 What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. 22 But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
1 John 5:14-21
14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
16 If anyone sees his brother sinning a sin which does not lead to death, he will ask, and He will give him life for those who commit sin not leading to death. There is sin leading to death. I do not say that he should pray about that. 17 All unrighteousness is sin, and there is sin not leading to death.
18 We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself,[a] and the wicked one does not touch him.
19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.
20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.
21But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.
1 corinthians 5
1It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife.
2And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.
3For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed,
4In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,
5To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
6Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?
7Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
8Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
9I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:
10Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.
11But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolator, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.
12For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?
13But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
