Note: I am posting this because I see the vast evidence of a false gospel running rampant in modern churches.
If we continue to make false converts and preach lies, we are truly going to witness ‘the Great Apostasy”, because the church is mostly made up of ‘saved-sinners’ due to the ‘gospel’ used to reach them.
SINNER = God hater, wicked, evil, greedy, violent, depraved, lawless, godless, proud, gossip, arrogant, disobedient, deceitful, insolent, mocker, profane, murderer, vial, perverted, witchcraft, children of the devil, children of darkness, oppressor, evildoer, iniquity, merciless, sexually perverted, molester, etc.
There are approximately 500+ verses that reference this individual.
Not one verse separates wickedness from the wicked.
Not one verse separates the lawless from their lawless deeds.
Not a single one says God has an intimate love for them. Not a single verse says the righteous are to tell this person ‘God loves you and has a plan for your life’.
Quite the contrary! We are to WARN them! To tell them the TRUTH.
The bible says God hates them, His wrath is upon them, God ‘gives them over’, Sodom and Gomorrah is their example, marked for condemnation, judgement will be executed on them, will be destroyed, are condemned, will be silent in darkness, are sons of darkness, their father is the devil, wickedness proceeds from them, they are an abomination, are separated from God, are of their father the devil, and their destination is an eternal hell where the worm does not die etc.
We are to let them know where they stand with God and it is NOT in His favor and love!
The only ‘plan’ God has for them at the moment is ETERNAL DEATH.
They stand CONDEMNED as objects of God’s WRATH.
They are currently on the broad path that leads to ETERNAL FIRE.
They are currently SEPARATED FROM GOD.
They are DEAD, they have NO LIFE in them.
Yet we want to go up to one who is ‘lost’, lie to them as we sweetly say, “Jesus loves you and will make your life better if you will say a pray, come to church, and live a moral life.” and hand them a proverbial ‘life-after-death insurance policy.”
Upon acceptance of this little ‘deal’ you have offered, they have now entered a state of deception WORSE then they were in before!!
Welfare ‘saints’. Gimme all ya got now God, I deserve it.
No WONDER churches are packed with people adhering to a pathetic form of religion they call, “Christianity” and are disillusioned, depressed, sick, tired, fruitless, defeated, disillusioned, and as messed up as the rest of the world!
No WONDER they are leaving by the droves and the youth have looked elsewhere for truth!
It has produced a generation of ‘saved’ sinners.
Yes, SINNERS, not ‘saved saints’!
This has produced untold millions of false believers who have no regard for holiness, scoff at sin, are ignorant of God’s Word, lukewarm, apathetic, ‘saved-sinners’ who now fill our churches and replicate themselves.
This new breed of church going ‘saved’ sinners have no regard for the Word of God (barely reading or studying it), no hunger for holiness, no hatred for sin, no passion for others who are going to hell – and why?
Because they too now believe the lie that “God loves all sinners and only hates their sin”.
The belief that God loves the sinner the same as He loves His own children in union with His Son is gross deception.
It would be like saying God the Father feels the same for His Son Jesus as he does the wicked, evil, greedy, violent, depraved, lawless, godless, proud, gossip, arrogant, disobedient, deceitful, insolent, mocker, profane, murderer, vial, perverted, witchcraft, children of Satan, children of darkness, oppressor, evildoer, iniquity, merciless, sexually perverted, molester, hater of God and Satan himself!
Because, “He who loves the father, must love his offspring too.” John 5:1
Yes – hallelujah! – “While we were yet sinners, God died for us.” because, “God so loved THE WORLD that He gave His son….”
i.e.: God, being love, revealed Himself AS love, to the world in this spectacular demonstration/action of benevolence (agape).
Yes! God gives lavishly to the sinner – His enemy. He gave Himself!!!! He shows benevolent love, patience, kindness, and long-suffering with the objects of His wrath.
Not only that, He desires that, “all men be saved.”! Hallellujah!
However, to use one single verse that reveals God’s great benevolent care toward the world, and create an entire evangelistic message that says ‘God loves you’ to the hater and enemy of God, is both unscriptural and dangerous and will produce false converts left and right.
IE: Modern American Christianity.
Just look around you for evidence of that.
Agape, benevolent love, ALWAYS tells the truth, not matter how hard or unpleasant.
The TRUTH will set them free.
The LIE will further deepen their deception and captivity.
“The quality of message will determine the quality of convert.”
