Faith Essentials

Religious Buildings Worshipers Have Their Personal Own Zeal For God:

 

( But Don't Have Sound Biblical Knowledge Of Christ )

 

This Will Be An Conversation Stopper

 

Apostle James R Winfree Sr, Revealing The Truth Of God's Holy Word In Love!!

 

Unbelievers of the Christian faith root their apathy or rejection of Christ in a fundamental assumption of religion in general. Namely, they see religion, and Christianity by association, as merely a means of “living a good life” or becoming a “good” person. While this goal may be the focus of some religions, secular society, and many individuals, it is not the primary goal of Christianity. This misunderstanding, coupled with a culture of self-made morality/truth, creates room for the assumption that we can understand what being a “good person” means apart from the Lord Jesus Christ and attain it on our own.

 

Truth And Sound Fact: “You do not need religion to go to heaven”

 

Assumptions

Sunday Mornings Christians Believe in “Religion” as a means of helping them to become “Good”.

Christianity/Religion is unnecessary, incomplete, or detrimental in understanding what being a “Good person” means in life.

Individuals have the ability to determine what is “good” and “bad” on their own. to

Individuals have the ability to be “Good” through actions, accomplishments, and living up to a self-made set of standards for a “Good” life.

Are doing all your Religious acts, deeds, services, and giving will get you into heaven or all that stuff will ever really please God.

 

What does being a “good person” actually mean?

Ask: “What standard must someone meet to be “good”? Usually, people mean, “I am not as bad as someone else” or “At least I don’t murder, steal, etc.”

Ask: “Where do you derive your standards for being a “Good” person?” Without morality or ethics rooted in God or definitive “Truth”, one can only set artificial standards for oneself, based on subjective assessments of “good” and “bad” behavior. ( On Christ The Only Truly Rock I Stand, All Other Religious Is Nothing But Sinking Sand )

 

That being said, He has partially helped us define and live into “Goodness” (whether someone is a Christian or not) by making all people in His image, with an innate sense of right and wrong, good and bad. We naturally, but only partially, understand and live in what is “Good” because we are made by Him.

Regardless, being a “good person” is not the focus of Christianity, But on Christ Love and Grace Alone.

 

Christianity acknowledges that it is impossible to be “good” on our own

The Scriptures tell us, “No one is acceptable to God! 11 Not one of them understands or even searches for God. 12 They have all turned away and are worthless. There isn’t one person who does right.” ( Romans 3:10-12 )

Rather, Jesus Christ is about the grace and redeeming love of our heavenly Father God, which overcomes our initial status as “bad people”/sinners

22 This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who Believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile or even Blacks or Whites or Browns or Reds or Yellows or even Mixed Believers, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus ( Romans 3:22-24 )

 

However, Christians Leaders Believe that Christ does heal us inwardly and transform us for Good over time

Christians know that Christ will give us faith to transform us from within and that the transformation will manifest itself in our outward behavior. ( It's Jesus and Him alone who Saves )

 

We Christ Believers have believed that any good that they do is the action of Christ within them rather than their own virtue. ( Our Beloved Apostle Paul said, it is No more I, But The Christ who lives in me, and the life I now live it is by faith in the Son of God. )

True Holy Spirit power for internal transformation comes from God's Spirit and in growing into God's image as God intended ( rather than as we intend. In other words, I grow into myself as I grow in Christ. But I don't know what this "self" is aside from God's call on my life. Our Spiritual heavenly is waiting on His sons and daughters, and then and only then He will return for His Church. Amen.
