Over the last few years there have been many great changes in my life in all areas. I have been blessed in so many ways and I have enjoyed sharing my life openly with all of you. We have had many great discussions all of witch where not meant to do anything but open up the mind and think about the world we live in and also to help make positive changes to all our personal and public lives. I have met so many great people over the internet and also in person.
One of those changes I have not really discussed is my personal growth in the faith our Lord and Savior Jesus Chris. I have not done so for many reasons, maybe I was a little afraid, or maybe I did not and still don’t want to be one of those who stand on the street corner praying for others to see. I thought that my personal changes would be visible through the light of Jesus Christ that shines with me and I pray that it has.
It has now been one year and over that time I have had many struggles some of which are not over but I wanted to put them out for all to see and talk about. Please understand this is not meant to harm anyone or any religion but is meant to shed light on the world and religion as I see it. I may be wrong in some of my views or maybe all of them but I can stay silent no more.
One year ago I decided that my life needed to change and I prayed for Jesus to help me and since then I have read studied my bible daily trying to understand what being a Christen meant and what I was supposed to do.
The Bible says there is but one Church and only one way to come to the Father and that’s trough the Son. For one to be saved he must believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten son of God and that he was sent here in the flesh to suffer and die for our sins. Also one must die to this world and be born again through baptism. We are to die to this world and live again in the spirit. But what does that really mean? How can one die to the world and live again within the spirit of Christ?
So if indeed the Bible is right and we know it is and there is one church what religion is it? I do not want to do something wrong. So I looked at lots of them, I have sent letters to different churches asking questions and have spent much time in prayer. I looked at those who go to cretin churches to see if the light of Christ was in them. I must tell you I am very disappointed…In many I do not see the light I see darkness. Time and time again I have reached out to cretin churches and to date not ONE church has reached back to me….In fact some of the people that have treated me the worst though this have been those who call themselves Christians. Not all people have been bad don’t get me wrong on facebook I have met a few very nice Christians that do have the light of Christ in them.
So what does this mean? I am not sure, but I know one thing for sure the Church has lost its way…When someone reaches out time and time again and the church ignores them what am I to think? Today I looked at a few local Churches Facbook pages I wanted to see what the member of the church did in their spare time and what I saw was disappointing. John said “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.” The profiles said nothing about the love of Christ…But had plenty to say about the love of the world..
I am not perfect in anyway and I was not sure if I wanted to put this out. But in the end I think it’s necessary. If you do truly believe in Christ then show it….You are an example to the lost and when you put up about how much you like the worlds music that glorifies the sex, drugs, and all other worldly lusts, and you like the TV shows that glorify cheating on your spouse’s people see that and that does not show the light of Christ.
For all the Churches you have some work to do…You are failing in your duties you are there to preach the gospel and bring the lost to Christ. Once there you are to help guide to insure they do not stray. It seems you there to serve milk to the brethren so you do not offend them and lose the money from there tithing? When a sinner reaches out you need to reach back….When you do not you have failed in you ministry…I am ashamed of many of you..It makes me angry to see this. Let me be straight with you. If you are not preaching the gospel and reaching out to sinners within you congregation and outside of it you are NOT doing the will of God.
Out of all this I have learned many things and one of them is that Gods Church is not about religion. It’s about obeying the gospel. I don’t think God cares if you are a Baptist, Full Gospel, Non-Denominational…What God wants in his Church is to obey the Gospel.
