Those who practice Churchianity are unable to hide that fact

29th June 2016 (11.12) My .mp3 Thought for Today Audio

The worst thing anyone can do is to try to deceive themselves and others.
They Jews who hated the Lord Jesus could not do it. They could not deceive others because the people saw and felt their evildoing. They could not deceive themselves because the Lord Jesus looked them in the eye and told them the truth about themselves. That is what made them so angry!

There are always those, who because of their selfishness, see a profit in siding with evildoers. Google Search will throw up loads of topics about why do people like bad people.

Christianity v Churchianity
A person seeking a religion such as Christian is a Lost Soul, a person who is separated from God. Thus they are operating as evildoers and making the decisions that evildoers make. Sure, they can do good things and make good decisions, but they do it for themselves.

They are free moral agents, of course, rational, accountable. They are in rebellion against God, wholly alienated, intensely prejudiced, and committed against him. They are committed to self-gratification as the end of their being. This committed state is moral depravity, the fountain of sin within them, from which flow by a natural law all their sinful ways. This committed voluntary state is their “wicked heart.”

This it is that needs a radical change.
God is infinitely benevolent, and unconverted sinners are supremely selfish; so that they are radically opposed to God. Their committal to the gratification of their appetites and propensities is known in Bible language as the “carnal mind”, or, “the minding of the flesh,” which is enmity against God. This enmity is voluntary, and must be overcome, if at all, by the Word of God, made effectual by the teaching of the Holy Spirit of God.

Here then is their BIG problem.
In searching for the right teaching that will win them for Christ Jesus, who is the only Saviour, they have to find the right teachers.

The RIGHT TEACHERS – the Christians – are living on the Narrow Road that leads to Heaven. However, the Lord Jesus himself tells us how few they are in number and how hard it is to find them.

These Christian Teachers will teach you in accordance to the will of God, and his will is that you learn, understand and fulfil the requirements of the Gospel of Jesus. They will preach so as to convert anybody who truly wants to be saved from Hell, helping them become true members of Christ’s Body, the true Church of Christianity. It’s a spiritual Church made up of spiritual people who are born again into God’s Family.

The WRONG TEACHERS – those who distort Christianity into Churchianity – are living on the Broad Road that leads to Hell. However, the Lord Jesus tells us how they are many in number and how very easy it is to find them.

These Churchianity Teachers will not teach you in accordance to the will of God, and you will only learn their version of what they call Christianity. Therefore, you will not learn, understand and fulfil the requirements of the Gospel of Jesus. They will preach so as to convert nobody, just make them Church Members.

How do you overcome all this evil?
It’s so easy for Christians to simply quote the Lord Jesus from the Holy Bible.
John 16:33 ‘I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.’

We have to provide examples that prove to the Lost Souls that the Lord Jesus tells the truth. True Christians can do this, but Churchianity Christians can’t.

The Gospel of Jesus is adapted to this end, and when wisely presented to you, you may confidently expect the effectual co-operation of the Holy Spirit in opening your mind and heart to why you need to love and obey the Lord Jesus, and how you do it. This is implied in the True Christians commission given to them by the Lord Jesus who saved them from Hell, “Go and disciple all nations, and lo! I am with you always, even to the end of the world.”

The testimony of the general church, and to a great extent of the ministry in those churches, on the subject has been lamentably defective. This legacy has been withheld from the church, and is it any wonder that she so disgracefully backslides? The testimony of the comparatively few, here and there, that insist upon this doctrine is almost nullified by the counter testimony or culpable silence of the great mass of Christ’s witnesses. The few True Christians are hidden by the many False Christians.

We who are the True Christians that give all to help the Lost Souls get to the Lord Jesus for salvation are concentrated in our duty by these words.
1 Timothy 4:16 ‘Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.’

The false Christians can’t do this as they do not have the Holy Spirit of God to empower them in their lives and witness for the Lord Jesus.
John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. [the Christians] 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. {those involved in Churchianity] These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.’

Churchianity is not under the Lordship of Jesus Christ

So what’s the role of Jesus?
1 John 3:8 The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God [the Lord Jesus] appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.

He came from Heaven to be a perfect sacrifice so that all who followed Him and obeyed his teachings and commands could be rescued from the Devil’s power over them. It’s called the Gospel of Jesus. He did many wonderful things for so many people and even tried to help evil people to believe in Him, the Saviour of the World.

He was not only seen by many people who knew he had been killed, he also worked with them.
Mark 16:20 Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.

He does the same today, all these years later. He and His Father come and live with those who prove their love for him by learning and obeying His Teachings and Commands. He also made many Promises that as a perfect Lord and Saviour, he could not break. He only lives with those who obey Moral Law, though it may take them time to learn it and put it into practice. These we call Christians and Disciples.
