Interestingly, ‘Christianity’ as such as the Constitution of most nations would have it, it is categorized as a religion, an institution of voluntary belief.
Who is to blame for passing such laws?
Passing the baton of blame on anyone doesn’t do any good and least of all progress!
But many supposed Christians should know and note that Christianity is not a Religion.
Check this in…
Matthew 16:24: ‘Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me’
He never said follow my religion! He said, ‘follow me’.
So the three important questions we should ask are these,
-Who is Jesus?
– What was he doing differently from the basic belief of God?
-Follow me, where was He going?
Kirk Franklin said, ‘Religion is a Prison’
Just because Jesus did some unique things and millions followed, starting with his first disciples doesn’t make it a wealth of assumption to belief that He actually meant we should follow Him rigidly or loosely.
Planting the CHURCH was his vision which was as a result of his successful mission of laying down His Life (by the shedding of his blood on the Cross) for the sins of every mankind (whole world), God serving us Salvation, not religion, on the platter of his only begotten SON, JESUS.
If Christianity is truly a Religion, why don’t we as avid believers sacrifice our very own CHILDREN!
But going to Church is the new headache I noticed God is having and no doctor can prescribe Him a painkiller!
Church should lead and reconcile mankind to His Maker through Jesus and not any other name!
Philippians 2:9 ‘Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name.’
Philippians 2:10 ‘That at the name of JESUS every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth.’
This hypocrisy is fast gaining grounds deliberately because ignorance as since besieged the minds of some Christians.
To crown it up, the most miss interpreted word ‘GRACE’.
Such a pity.
Jesus Christ is the Grace of God the Father.
Why the confusion? Grace is unmerited favour of God upon mankind.
Why does it sound like the passport for sin?
Romans 6:1-2; is now a victim of endless theologies and baseless philosophies…
For Christ sakes…Read it…
Romans 6:1-2; ‘WHAT shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? (2) God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?’
Why are these preachers trying to add sugar to the bitter truth.
If your members can’t handle the truth you preach, (God that knows all things knows the number of persons that will make heaven) then let them go! Off course, pray for them but don’t let them dictate your gospel, the Gospel of Christ.
If call yourself a Christian, then learn this truth, Grace can’t stop you from going to Hell if you are hell bent on falsehood.
YOU ARE GOING TO HELL IF YOU DON’T REPENT FROM YOUR SINS BECAUSE I ALSO KNOW THAT YOU’VE BEEN FORGIVEN AS ACCORDING TO THE LAW OF GRACE BUT WITHOUT REPENTANCE, HELL IS JUST WAITING FOR YOU!
PUNCH WORD: If Christianity is truly a Religion, why don’t we as avid believers sacrifice our very own CHILDREN!
