Keeping This Truthful

This Teaching And Biblical Word Is To Those Of Us Who Need More Than Just Sunday's Religion And It's Services:

 

Shared by Apostle James R Wnfree Sr, Unraveling The True Mystery Of God's Holy Word.

 

The next most biblical answer for why so many Believers are leaving the church buildings and religions is that we simply don’t like human or organized religion. and the religious leaders only benefit from their ministry and religions:

 

“We see organized religious groups as more divisive than uniting.”

“We know that more harm has been done in the name of religion than any other area.”

“I know religion is not of the Lord Jesus Christ. It’s a Money Making Business . . . it’s all about Money.”

Now, sadly, what these young believers are doing is focusing on the mistakes of a minority of Preachers or the hypocrisy of false converts and false teachers. They ignore or are ignorant of, the millions of Christ Believers who genuinely love the Lord and show the fruit of the Spirit in their lives. They forget that Christ Believers and the Saints have been behind building hospitals; caring for the orphans, widows, abused, and needy; and providing for other physical and spiritual needs for centuries. It’s ironic that they reject Christ truth based on the actions of a few bad leaders, but true God sends leaders do just as Jesus did and Not with words only, But in deeds and in truth. 

 

We are Free and Spiritual in Christ, But Not Religious locked up behind four walls:

But many Believers in the Lord Jesus, nearly 1 in 5, we have left organized religion haven’t given up on “Spirituality.” Here are some of our biblical responses:

 

“We don’t have a particular religion because we are open-minded, and we don’t know there is one particular religion that is right. we only want our relationship with Christ and Him alone”

“We know that Jesus Christ is The Way, The Truth and The Life and Light.”

“Right now we are leaning toward spirituality freedom in Christ. I know we can pray to our heavenly Father God anywhere. I do believe in the Holy Spirit power, but we don’t need four walls to do that or worship Him.”

Not surprisingly, the percentage of Believers who claim spirituality but not religion was highest among those who describe their religion as “nothing in particular” (22%). These young Christians have created a god in their Preachers and spiritual leaders and the places they call church homes. They’ve made God and religion into what they want it to be. It’s really no different from the sinners of the New Testament church days. They believed in many different gods and were fine with pretty much any god or belief—except Jesus Christ.

 

Why the opposition to Christ? Well, for the same reason people oppose Him and create their own alternate god today—because they hate the exclusive claims of Christ Jesus. In our “tolerant” day and age, the idea of an “intolerant,” exclusive gospel where Jesus is The Way, The Truth, The Life, the only way to Heaven (John 14:6), and the only means of salvation (Acts 4:12) is abhorrent to them. So they reject the Jesus of Scripture and create something that agrees with their preconceived ideas they just left the club life and become part of the religious church club life.

 

IRONICALLY, CHRISTI JESUS IS REALLY THE MOST INCLUSIVE TRUTH.

Ironically, Christ Jesus is really the most inclusive Truth. The gospel of Jesus Christ is for everyone—Jesus doesn’t discriminate against those from the slums of India, the mansions of Beverly Hills, or an average household in a crowded city in China. Salvation is for male and female, atheist or Muslim, slave or free (Galatians 3:28). If you are a human being, the gospel is for you (John 3:16). You don’t even have to “clean up your act” before receiving the gospel. You must simply believe in Jesus Christ and what He has done for us on the Cross and by His resurrection (Romans 10:9), repent of your sins (Acts 3:19), and you will be saved!

 

Many Believers Are Simply Too Busy To Study And Read Their Own Bibles For Themselves. SAD!

The final lukewarm claims they are just too busy to go to read or study for themselves. They haven’t necessarily rejected their upbringing, but they are “inactive.” Truth is simply not a priority for them. This group of believers said things like:

 

“They just basically stopped reading and studying the word of God when they went to college and never picked it back up. they were never followers of Christ, just their pastors, and religion.”

“They practice any religion and they go to any church and participate in its rituals and its services.”

They  have time to go to Sunday's church only to get fed by their leaders.”

Jesus’ parable about the soils. He describes a farmer sowing seed, which falls on different kinds of soils. Some of this seed “fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up and choked them” (Matthew 13:7). He explains, “Now he who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful” (Matthew 13:22). These young people may have heard the truth, but the cares of this world, the busyness of their lives, have choked it. It’s simply a matter of priorities—they don’t see religion as important enough to cut out something to make room for it; therefore, God is simply ignored as they pursue the things of this world.

 

How Do We Contend For The Faith?

How do we spread the good news of the gospel to these religious people who’ve left the Jesus and turned to Religion, agnosticism, and spirituality? First, we need to provide solid answers to their skeptical questions. We need to show them that God’s Word can be trusted from the very beginning and that truth, when properly interpreted through a biblical word view, always confirms the Bible. We can expose the shaky foundations of their own world view by asking good questions and pointing out the flaws in evolutionary and atheistic thinking and start putting our faith and love into actions, Not with our prayers and empty words only. If the pastors and leaders are blessed, the whole body should be bless yes even the feet also. Period.

 

We also need to show them an example of authentic Christian love. When we share the good news of the gospel and defend the Christian faith, we need to do so with love and grace. First Peter 3:15 says, “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.” A harsh, condemning attitude does not exemplify Christ and will drive people away from Him, rather than toward Him. Many of these religious people simply do not like sound biblical truth because they’ love their Pastors, Religions and the World more than God and His truth. We need to show them what true Christian love and unity is like through our attitude as we engage with them.

 

WE NEED TO SHOW THEM WHAT TRUE CHRISTIAN LOVE AND UNITY IS OUR ATTITUDE AS WE ENGAGE WITH THEM.

It may be discouraging to hear the numbers of those who are leaving Jesus Christ, but instead of being discouraged, we need to get on our knees and pray for this generation. Pray that God will give you opportunities to share the gospel with co-workers, neighbors, family members, and classmates and be vigilant to watch for these opportunities. Jesus promised, “He will build His church Not yours, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18)—and, by His mercy, we get to be part of this! We also need to make sure we are doing our best to get our Pastors and Ministers to be teaching Jesus Christ and raising up generations who will stand uncompromisingly on the Word of God, know what they believe and why, and will boldly proclaim the gospel.

 

To learn more about reaching this generation for Christ, I encourage you to follow us as we follow the Lord Jesus Christ 

and read and study my media ministries and we make the truth of Jesus Christ known in love.
