All those watching have sat in amazement as the church especially in America has been on a downhill slide. Changing doctrine, deep doctrine set forth in Scripture by God, Christ and the Apostles. This movement to infiltrate the core of Christianity and change doctrine has become the number one priority of those who wish their sins to disappear, they want to worship a higher power one that condones sin such as homosexuality, adultery,& tolerance of other god’s. Even though scripture defines all those as clear abominations. We’re warned many times about worshiping another god. We’re warned many times about homosexuality, and adultery, and a host of other sins, yet satan has yet again deceived the body of Christ into thinking “you shall not surely die.” The gospel of Christ centers on the fact that we will die in our sins unless we repent and turn to Him. The word repent means to seek your heart, recognize that you have sinned and sincerely seek forgiveness. The word repent means that you will turn from wickedness and sin and allow the Holy Spirit to change you. Yes, Jesus taught love, but He also taught repentance and change. He saved a woman from stoning for adultery, and said to her, “Neither do I condemn thee, go and sin no more.” He didn’t say I don’t condemn your sin, go ahead, I forgive you carry on. I honestly don’t know how those wishing to change God’s word can justify this idea of no repentance for sin. The following excerpt points out what’s coming.
(WND) An evangelical Christian worship singer who has been urging churches to change their doctrine on homosexual behavior since announcing she is a lesbian is at the forefront of a coming tidal wave of “infiltration” of the church by promoters of the “gay” agenda, contends evangelical attorney, evangelist and activist Scott Lively.Lively, president of Abiding Truth Ministries, said that with insiders on the offensive such as Vicky Beeching, a British-born artist who has become popular among evangelicals in the U.S., he expects “attacks on Christians in America like we’ve never seen before.” via Churches warned: ‘Tidal wave of gay theology’ looming.
This idea of carry on, God is love and He won’t condemn you, is false gospel. The Gospel is very clear what happens when you ignore God’s word for man’s word. The Bible is replete with examples of rulers that ruled outside of God’s word. Jesus is very clear about what happens to those who refuse to follow doctrine.
Later, the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make the woman to be an authority corresponding to him.”………..(Therefore a man will leave his father and his mother and cling to his wife, and they will become one flesh.) Even though both the man and his wife were naked, they were not ashamed about it.
1 Thessalonians 4:3
It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality;
Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.
Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?…
I know every argument put forth for this and none of them hold water. The Gospel is clear.
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Backbiters, haters of God, spiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
I just want to add that we are not to hate, we are to love as Jesus commanded us, but it’s also clear that if we condone sin of any kind, even changing God’s word for acceptance of this sin then their blood will be on our hands, we will be held accountable. So love your neighbor as yourself, but don’t change God’s word because it’s inconvenient or not popular. You will find yourself at judgement on the wrong side the side with darkness and despair, not an eternity of light with Christ.
