"A MESSAGE TO THE CHURCHES"

EVERYBODY IS


On the one hand, “The Political Left”, with its incessant complaining, have been doing horrible evil and horribly destructive things. They are using tragic events as an excuse to promote their Socialist agenda and a One World Government, creating terror, chaos, destruction and evil as a distraction.


Most of their efforts are built on deception and lies. They are doing these evil and horrible things in response to what they call “injustice”, about things they say are detestable. Then, they perpetrate the very evils they say they hate.


They Are Actually Protesting and Rejecting

God and His Standards


On the other hand, “Conservatives” Christians are simply complaining. Complaining about the problems that beset them, complaining about what they perceive as injustices and about the things they find detestable. They are complaining, but are doing little-to-nothing in response.


Why are the Christians and conservatives doing so little to be heard, except for their complaining?


I believe it is because Christians confuse “Christ likeness” with being “docile” and they are confusing “Docile” with “Kind”.


I am certain that many Christians have bought into much of what the Left defines as “what it means to act like a Christian”!


I am certain that Christians have lost the ability to “live in this world and not be part of this world.”


You hear it all the time, from the Left, the Progressives, the atheists and the like are saying:


“And you call yourself a Christian? And you act that way? Christians are supposed to ________________________ ” (and The Left will fill in the blanks for you, so you will obey them and because you have no answer.)


The “heathens”, are defining Christian behavior and Christian thought and Christians are complying! It is really astounding. There has to be more to this than simple compliance.


1. Could it be that Christians and conservatives worry too much about “how they look”.

2. Could it be that they are just cowardly?

3. Could it be they are afraid of what it might cost them to respond?


I say, “YES”, to all three.


There is an answer to these questions. But first, we must ask the right question. And the right question is


“How Should We Respond?”


Edmund Burke said “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”



JESUS RESPONDS

Matthew 23:1-36


Let’s assume the year is 2020, and paraphrasing, drawn on the 23rd chapter of the Book of Mathew:

“Jesus speaks to the crowds and to His disciples, saying: “These Preachers, Priests, Rabbis, and hypocrites have seated themselves in the chair of Moses; therefore all that they tell you and do and observe, they themselves do not do themselves.

  • They tie up heavy burdens and lay them on men’s shoulders,

  • but they themselves are unwilling to move them with so much as a finger.

  • But they do all their deeds to be noticed by men;

  • Some wear clothing to be noticed by others, wearing the latest fads, sporting tattoos and tight fitting garments.

  • Others dress to ‘fit into the crowds they can attract, the people who think like them and want to be satisfied with a good performance.

  • These Preachers, Priests and Rabbis, love the place of honor at banquets and the chief seats in their churches, and respectful greetings the get in the market places, and being called Teacher, Preacher, Father or Rabbi by men.

  • But Jesus said do not be called Teacher, a great one, or my honorable sir

  • Do not be called Rabbi, a title used by the Jews to address their teachers; for One is your Teacher, and you are all brothers.

  • Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven.

  • Do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ. But the greatest among you shall be your servant. Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.

  • For you do not enter in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.

“Truly I say to you, all these things are coming upon this generation.“

We must join ourselves together and BE THE CHURCH in the image and likeness of Jesus.
