CHRISTIANITY – A RELIGIOUS LIFESTYLE?

 

Christianity is a way of life not a Religion!  How can there be a doubt of that?  Paul created a Church, whose members make up the body of Christ.  One body!  Paul only knew one story.  He got it from God, and he devoted his life to teaching all who would become his brother in Christ, the meaning of the brotherhood of Christ and the promise of redemption fulfilled.  For centuries, religious organizations have adopted the Christian way of life as the basis for their belief system, each claiming it their own, with each dividing the word differently, but all practicing the rituals of religion that have been handed down by tradition for two millennia.

What happened to the body Paul began?  Funny, God asked the same question of each of the Churches in Revelation.  Two are singled out for praise; Smyrna, for enduring the bitterness of persecution, and Philadelphia, the body of brotherly love for keeping the truth of His word.  The others are reminded of their short fallings and finally warned in the end time age of Laodicea to repent or suffer the Great Tribulation.

If we are in the time of the end signaled by the events of Daniels prophecy coming to life on the stage of history, then we are in the time when the Christian Church on earth is depicted in Revelation as the Laodicean Church.  Laodiceans are going to be spit out unless they repent.

Philadelphian’s on the other hand have a door being held open for them by Jesus, and His promise that He won’t let the warning to the Laodiceans last very long.

John is writing to the Churches that Paul started.  In just a few years the body of Christ that Paul started was already beginning to be diluted into what became the exchange of a way of life for a structured set of religious beliefs known generically as Christianity..  Each sharing the common intention of getting followers to heaven through them.

Is Christianity a brotherhood today?  Other than the Philadelphians who have kept the word of the truth of Paul’s original body kindling in their time, is there anyone listening to what Paul taught?  Who are the Christian guru’s of today?  What are they teaching?  What’s their message?  Jesus said that you can tell a tree by it’s fruit.

Paul was a blunt talking preacher.  He got right to the point and didn’t mince many words.  His end time prophecy is pervasive through out his teachings, yet seldom do I find or hear of a guru teaching on it.

Typical of the time I guess, because a major characteristics of the Laodicean’s is their blindness and their need for eye salve

Recently I commented on the present crop of gurus who are touting that God is punishing the United States because of the governments Middle East Policy.  Well, in answering a question the other day, I found myself having a few more thoughts on the subject.

God And Punishment

Scripture shows that God punished the Jews in line with the Covenant He made with them, but the covenant that He made with the Church doesn't involve punishment; it involves forgiveness and reward for being a member of the body.

Jesus died for all man kind, and His covenant requires a willful act to become a member and participate in the forgiveness and the reward.  You either join in or you don't!  It's just that simple. If you choose to be in, it makes no difference to God what kind of sins you commit.  He’s not looking to punish you for them, He’s looking for you to recognize that they are sins, and to know that because you do, you are being looked at through the work of Jesus, and they are covered by Him.  The word sin comes from the Greek; Homorita, which means to fall short.  Everything we do as humans falls short of the glory of God, therefore no sin is "worse" than any other, and all of them, past, present and future were nailed to the cross that Jesus bore, so what are they talking about special punishment for nations that don't obey the "laws" of God?  God is looking for trust from man, not perfection.  Remember folks, we are not sinners because we sin, we sin because we’re sinners.

I can think of two reasons why God made us sinners.  First, it fits His plan perfectly to use our sinfulness to keep the connection with us alive and vital.  Our personal relationship is dependent on sinning!  We stay connected to God by knowing that our sins were forgiven by His actions, and working directly with Him in our daily struggle to avoid the Devil and his temptations.  Without owning up to sins, we would have no need for God.  Secondly, for His own good, He uses our sins to build the trust in Him that is requires to accept His word as fact, so you can freely accept the graciousness of the gift of His mercy.  Sin gives grace meaning.  That’s why He doesn’t make and end to it until the end.  Christians are Raptured!  Paul said that you are changed from corruptible to incorruptible when you put on your immortality.  You are no longer a sinner, but sin goes on, and the Great Tribulation is how He deals with it after the Rapture, with those who mistrusted Him and didn’t accept His gift.

The law is included in the covenant with the Jews, not Christians! Christians are covered by Grace, which is "unmerited favor" from God because of what Jesus did.  Faith is what saves, and faith is an action based upon belief and sustained by confidence.  People are either in Christ or not in Christ, and scripture is clear about how you get in Christ; you must ask Him in, and when you do, by God’s GRACE you receive eternal life for your FAITH, instead of the death that sinners deserve, because the LAW says, for sin comes DEATH!

Nations can't have faith!  People have faith! It's a common misnomer that the USA, or England,  or France, or Italy or any country for that matter, is a "Christian Country", just because lots of the people in those countries believe that Jesus is the Messiah.  The governments of those countries couldn't care less about the Messiah.  God called governments "beasts", all governments!  I don't care if they are democratic, autocratic, or any other cratic, God considers them beasts.

The Jews are under the LAW and are punished accordingly if they break the law.  Their prophecies are full of examples.  God provided them a way of atonement, but it’s presently a rubble heap, and temporarily on hold.

Christians are under grace by free will choice, and will be judged accordingly when it's time. So, I don't think that God is singling out America for any special treatment for the “sins” of their government or it’s unbelieving citizens.  The outcome of the Covenant is already spelled out in scripture. Don't you think that God would have spelled out everything that he was going to include in the covenant from the beginning?  I do, because in all instances, that’s His manner!

The word is already nigh you, speak it forth, for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation (Rom 10:10).  Speak not, and receive not.  It's doesn't say speak not and expect to receive special treatment.  Christianity has to be freely chosen and it's available to all man kind, so it's up to each individual to accept or deny the lordship of Jesus, and for that they will be judged when they come before the Lord to answer for their actions.  For those who chose Christ, there will be a great celebration in heaven on that day.

The real problem is that once again in history, the word of God, which is His covenant has been turned from a life style into a religion.  The Jews did the same thing, resulting in them missing the Messiah when He came on the scene, which is what Scripture says will happen to Christians in the end.  The only special warning that God gives in the end time is to the Church of Laodicea, the final age of the Church.  He says; either ask me in, and join me in my throne, or don't and get spit out.  Then He says; those who have an ear, let them hear what the Spirit sayeth unto the Churches.  Then no more words for the Church.

Today the emphasis is placed on salvation and that's all they talk about. There is no teaching going on past that; only condemnation for your sins, which should never be a concern.  It's much more important in my opinion to learn about Christianity as a life style because once you accept Christ, you are saved.  After that it's a matter of learning to live like you are, and that's what they don't teach which is what I find to be most disturbing, because therein lies the road to Laodicea.

Paul taught love, forgiveness and reward.  The Church teaches fire and brimstone along with doom and gloom and being left behind, which are the things slated for those who did not choose Christ!

Is there a hope of changing that?  Well, that's why I teach, in that hope, but, it takes more than just one lonely voice in the wilderness, and after 5 years, I'm still that voice in the wilderness, still hoping to make a dent, but I need your help.

Thanks for listening and God bless.

Humbly,
Your Brother in Christ,
Brother Sal from CHN
