We Christians are to follow our Master's example. We are to be vocal and public about the gospel which saves (Rom. 1:16).

We receive much insight into the element of the human condition when we take the time to read and study the account of Cain & Able. We see the tale of two men. One was good and faithful. The other evil and unrighteous. When our priorities are with God and pleasing Him in our offerings, we find faithfulness. When we are selfish and preoccupied with worldly activities, we find ourselves useless. Not putting God first can lead us down a path of lies and murder. It separates us from God. In our journey on this earth as Christians, may we be more like Able and less like Cain.

Stay positive. Stay focused. Don't allow your emotions to get the best of you. Remain centered on the goal of our faith in Christ. Think souls. Pray. Know that you are loved and united. Do not allow the past to snare your mind away from the wealth of spiritual blessings found in our Lord and Master. Allow the teachings of the King to transform you into something productive in His kingdom. Allow His teachings to guide you into completion. Righteousness. Love.

Worthless Memes.

You've seen them, right? They are everywhere on social media. The memes that have various images of "Jesus" extending His arms to you, or knocking at your door waiting for you to receive Him with a "like." Supposed "blessings" are promised if you simply "share." Yep, those ones. Useless. They simply give us insight into the heart of the person posting them. Ignorant. Sometimes fueled by the "health & wealth" snake oil salesmen, so many are poisoned by. At other times the false sense of the "miraculous" might happen if I drop an "AMEN" on the comment thread. Again. Useless, worthless, unproductive, spiritually void, unfruitful, and lawless.

This epidemic is nothing new. It has been going on for millennia. Most religious people of Jesus' day were much the same. They would take the Word of God out of context, twist it to fit their own agendas, and remove themselves from any spiritual obligation or consequence. And though they had no Facebook memes to post, they certainly had public gathering areas to voice out their precepts. And that's the problem, their traditions and commandments come from men, not heaven (Mt. 21:25). And because they come from men, we find vain repetitions creating misguided attempts to "feel religious" in sharing something that God does not recognize. These worthless memes don't come from our Lord. And they don't come from people who know God or obey the gospel of His dear Son, either. The whispering wind is the prince behind their curtains in which they blindly follow.  

"Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." - Mt. 15:7-9

The cure? Christ. We must change our minds away from the vain, and toward the genuine faith. The kind of faith sown by the Word of our Master (Rom. 10:17). This faith will lead us to righteousness. To everlasting peace and hope. Solidified in the knowledge of the good news which sets us free from the bondage of uselessness.

A very sobering Revelation giving us insight into the standard of judgment God's nature authoritatively commands. The world and it's fleshly desires, immoral behavior and lifestyle, will come an end one Day. And all who are found guilty of these practices will be cast into hell for an eternal punishment. And to further add, all Christians who have allowed these practicies to creep into the church will also receive the same eternal demise. 

May we seek to grow in our faith, to go further away from these worldly vices. May we be found in our Lord's favor.

Angel of Light?

We were born into a set of religious traditions. Perhaps Catholicism, the Baptist Church, Methodist, Pentecostalism, or any other of the thousands of denominations established centuries after Christ built His one and unique body (Mt. 16:18). These views came from sources we love and trusted, did they not? For perhaps you can identify one of the figures in the meme which represents your faith? Regardless, we didn't really question the actions or thoughts behind them, we simply obeyed as told, right? We followed family to "Mass," or "Church" every week (or month, year?). And so we grew up solidifying our allegiance to the traditions handed down to us. Blindly clinging to something we can't defend. "And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light." (2 Cor. 11:14). How else would we believe a lie? 

However one day, we stopped for a minute to think. "Why am I a member of this *insert religious establishment*?" Why do we do things a certain way? What is the purpose? Is any of this true, or simply something we do without even knowing why?  Some might dare question, only to be met with a stern rebuke for doing so. Others will dig further and pierce past the wall of tradition. And in there, only a few will continue to seek until they have been set free from the bondage of religious lies (Jn. 8:32).

To those that do persevere and realize the many false teachers which masquerade as angels of light, freedom is found in Christ. A release from denominationalism is a truly liberating moment of peace. And it can be found for all who are honest with the Holy Bible. 

Don't choose to go to hell with false teachers masquerading as angels of light. Change your mind this day and move forward in your search for reality.

The heart of the matter
 
In a culture enamored with emotional self, it is no surprise that most who identify with Christianity are seeking an elevated sense of worship. The sacred idea that acapella is the sole form of spirit and truth towards God, has become a moot point. We’d rather enjoy the feeling of musical instruments than the “boring old tradition” churches of Christ once kept dear. But is this a step forward, or wayward? Perhaps a simple illustration?
 
I go to the drive-through restaurant. I want a “combo #1” without pickles, root-beer to drink. I get to the window, pay, and receive my order. I drive away and find a place to park. The bag is opened, and *sigh/smh, they put pickles in there. I’m allergic to pickles! And to top it off they gave me 7up for a drink?! Ok, so they made a mistake, right? I go inside and speak to the manager. She proceeds to tell me, “I know what you asked for, but I felt like you’d really prefer pickles on your burger and 7up for a drink.” Am I expected to pay for this? Should I eat it? No. Now if she had said, “I’m so sorry, sir. Please let me make it right and give you what you paid for.” Well, now we’re headed the right direction. Thank you kindly. 
 
Reason with me. Who bled for the church? You? Me? Or Christ? Who’s church is it? Can a man redecorate a house that does not belong to him? Can man tell God what He now should accept? 
 
No matter how we try to twist the teaching, the New Testament Covenant (in Christ) has delivered to us a system and pattern of worship. In this new dispensation (the Messianic age) we are to give God what He has asked for. Are not the unchanging Words of Scripture authoritative in their silence? What is our response? “I know what you asked for, but I felt like you’d really prefer musical instruments in our worship.” ?? Or, “I’m so sorry, I repent, please let me make it right and give you what your Son’s blood paid for.” ?? An honest student of the Bible will know the right answer. 
 
More questions. Can mechanical instruments teach? Which instrument was created in the image of God, the piano, or the heart of mankind? Where is the example to be found in Christ that sets an example of Christians using M.I. for worship? Friends, with all love and respect. There is no such example. But what are we commanded? …

The Pharisaical Descent.

What is commonly known among its followers as the "Holy Mother Church" (aka the Roman Catholic Church), began as a product of apostasy and political influence. This Centuries after Jesus Christ built His congregation in Jerusalem with great power from the Holy Spirit, during the reign of the Roman Empire. Many were added to this very way belonging to God (Acts 2:41, 47). However, there was much turmoil and persecution during these times. For throughout the coming centuries wolves grew amidst the sheep, and division took place. And though perhaps sincerity may have been identified in some, none the less, the birth of a denomination grew and went against the teachings of the Messiah. It is of gravest importance you understand the consequences of this wayward entity. This tradition established by mankind against God, in vain.

Therefore, one cannot acquire any spiritual hope outside the doctrine of our King and Master. The Catholic Church is a Church found outside the body of Christ. And today millions upon millions have given their allegiance to it. Blind leading the blind. A dead faith in a paradise never to be achieved. You must know, this Catholic spirit is a plant God never watered. And the living Word says that "every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up." (Mt. 15:13). You will never see heaven as a member of the Catholic Church. You've been told to trust men instead of God. All our loved ones are screaming from the grave to awaken and seek the truth only found within the pages of the Holy Bible.

It is an inevitable truth. To be faithful will result in persecution. We shall receive hostility from our own. From family. Government. And all who hate the cross of Christ. But why? Simply, for the greater good of the gospel. The further growth of His kingdom. We believe on Him and live godly. In doing so we shall come across various trials. We count it all joy, worthy to suffer for His sake. The purpose we have in life is fulfilled in our sacrifice. For He suffered, His apostles suffered, and so we also will suffer. We must count the cost of our repentance. We must stay true till the end. For the crown of life is given to all who faithfully finish the race. Be benevolent. Evangelize. Do not forsake the assembly. To Him be glory forever, amen.

We were born in a family and community rooted deep in Catholic tradition (1 Tim. 4:1-3). All other religious endeavors were mere protestant attempts which should be shunned and destroyed. It was understood that we were members of the one true "holy mother Church." And that Peter the apostle was the 1st RCP. For through succession our "priests" were our "holy fathers." The Bible was given by the "holy mother Church" and was not the end all says all of religious authority.

This all began to change upon further honest seeking investigation (Mt. 7:7). Questioning the questionable practices. It became clear that we had been lied to about religion for millennia. The Bible revealed the truth that set us free from the bondage of Catechism and the eternal punishment that awaited us if we remained loyal to the apostasy. Today my parents, brother and myself have been made Christians through gospel obedience. Not Catholics.

The world does not wish to hear anything about the love and union God created between husband and wife. Feminism has launched an assault against the idea of submitting to a faithful man. God knows the necessary covenant which is capable of surviving all coming trials. Don't trust a dying world for answers in marriage. Trust God and those who love Him.

Seems a bit silly doesn't it? Well, imaging how God must must feel. Let us be reminded that we need Jesus, always. His grace. Mercy. Patience. Longsuffering. Forgiveness. These are freely extended to us in Christ if we don't try to secretly live in sin, or worst yet try to tell God and His people that "we have no sin." May we seek daily renewal. May we confess to one another. May we grow in the love and righteousness of our Lord and Master.

Words are important. Inspired words are most important (2 Tim. 3:16-17). Jesus demands in us an inward faith which produces an outward action (Rom. 6:17). Our active trust is a public expression of belief, leading us to the reception of salvation for all who love God (Heb. 11:6). The forgiveness of sins freely extended to mankind upon the conditions of His grace (Acts 2:38). This system of love was prophetically fulfilled and accomplished by the shed blood of Christ at the cross (Mt. 26:28). And so. Ask questions, and the Bible will answer (1 John 5:14). Seek God and His kingdom, and you will find it (Mt. 6:33). Submit to the gospel (Mk. 16:16), and God will add you to His church (Acts 2:47).

Where is our location of strength? "In the faith." And we must be ready, courageous, and mighty in our convictions.
