Standing For the Gospel of Christ

strong

There is a new progressive movement going on in some so-called churches where they accept anything.  They say come to this church and you can do as you please.  They say you can drink beer, you can commit adultery, you can find some other spiritual way to Heaven and still be forgiven, because you are part of this loving, accepting church.  They tell you lies that Christ loves you just the way you are, even in your sins.

Well the Christ Jesus that I serve tells us something quite different, he tells us that we must have a repentant heart; that we must turn from our sins and live a life pleasing to him… a holy life.  Yes, we are to love others and forgive others, but we are not to accept sin freely into our churches.  The Bible preaches against being drunk with excess.  The Bible preaches against homosexuality, adultery, lasciviousness, against lying, stealing, cheating, etc…..

I heard a sermon the other day, that talked about when Christ lived on this earth.  He was an austere man; which means: severe, stern, strict in manner.  He often got on to his own disciples for things that they did, such as when the disciples rebuked people for bringing little kids to him.  Another time when he asked the disciples to pray, instead found them all sleeping instead.   Jesus lived a perfect life without sin and expects us to strive for that too.  So no, he would not welcome sin into the church. 

Today we must stand for what is right and contend for the faith of Jesus Christ; for what he stood for, what he expects of us as Christians.  We must accept falsehoods into our church, just for member’s acceptance or so we don’t offend anyone.  We should stand firm for Jesus Christ.
