Is Churchianity the religion chosen by Christian Cowards?

mikehill4jesus “Is Churchianity the religion chosen by Christian Cowards?”

2nd & 3rd July 2016 (15.08) My .mp3 Thought for Today Audio

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 true Christians] 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. {those false Christians involved in Churchianity] These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.’

True Christianity involves Holy Boldness!
Fear is not the problem facing False Christians, it is a lack of courage. Some want to avoid hell or want to get into heaven. Some want a religion that they can hide in. Some simply want a crutch that will enable them to survive real life. Some want to feel special and see Ordination into a form of Christian Church. I suppose it’s true to say there are many reasons a person becomes a Professing Christian.

Whatever the reason, it is cantered on their Unholy Boldness, for make no mistake, Churchianity brings many terrifying problems that have to be endured. After all, the coward is joining a religion that is involved in evildoing and they will be in spiritual bondage.

So what is the Holy Boldness that they lack?

The Lord Jesus Christ is an example of Holy Boldness.
John 7:26 Here he is, speaking publicly, and they are not saying a word to him. Have the authorities really concluded that he is the Messiah?

The Holy Boldness of true Christians is through faith in their Lord Jesus.
Ephesians 2:12 remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world.

A call to persevere in faith
Hebrews 10:19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus,

Holy Boldness is a characteristic of true Christians.
Proverbs 28:1 The wicked flee though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.

It is produced by.

Trust in God
Isaiah 50:7
Because the Sovereign Lord helps me,
I will not be disgraced.
Therefore have I set my face like flint,
and I know I will not be put to shame.

The fear of God
Acts 5:29 Peter and the other apostles replied: ‘We must obey God rather than human beings!

Faithfulness to God
1 Timothy 3:13 Those who have served well gain an excellent standing and great assurance in their faith in Christ Jesus.

True Christians express their trust in God with Holy Boldness.
Hebrews 13:6 So we say with confidence,
‘The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?’ [Psalm 118:6,7]

They have Holy Boldness in prayer.
Ephesians 3:12 In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.

Hebrews 4:16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Spiritually converted Christians have Holy Boldness when facing Judgement.
1 John 4:17 This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: in this world we are like Jesus.

Christ’s Spiritual Ministers given to His Body of Believers – Not Churchianity
Ephesians 4:11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.

Christ’s Spiritual Ministers must show Holy Boldness in faithfulness to those they are serving.
2 Corinthians 7:4 I have spoken to you with great frankness; I take great pride in you. I am greatly encouraged; in all our troubles my joy knows no bounds.

The Apostle Paul’s defence of his ministry entailed Holy Boldness
2 Corinthians 10:1 By the humility and gentleness of Christ, I appeal to you – I, Paul, who am ‘timid’ when face to face with you, but ‘bold’ towards you when away!

Holy Boldness in preaching.
Acts 4:31 After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.

Philippians 1:14 And because of my chains, most of the brothers and sisters have become confident in the Lord and dare all the more to proclaim the gospel without fear.

Holy Boldness in reproving sin.
Isaiah 58:1 ‘Shout it aloud, do not hold back.
Raise your voice like a trumpet.
Declare to my people their rebellion
and to the descendants of Jacob their sins.

Micah 3:8
But as for me, I am filled with power,
with the Spirit of the Lord,
and with justice and might,
to declare to Jacob his transgression,
to Israel his sin.

Holy Boldness in the face of opposition.
Acts 13:46 Then Paul and Barnabas answered them boldly: ‘We had to speak the word of God to you first. Since you reject it and do not consider yourselves worthy of eternal life, we now turn to the Gentiles.

1 Thessalonians 2:2 We had previously suffered and been treated outrageously in Philippi, as you know, but with the help of our God we dared to tell you his gospel in the face of strong opposition.

The unconverted professing Christian can read these Bible Verses, but cannot show Holy Boldness because they do not have Union with Christ Jesus the Lord and his Father. Without this “UNION” they do not receive the Holy Spirit of God. Notice how they work in groups and use worldly means to accomplish their goals. 100% pure unadulterated Churchianity!
