The Current Musings Of This Gentile For Christ Jesus....

Updated on July 22, 2015

The Current Musings Of This Gentile For Christ Jesus...

One of the biggest disconnects when someone says that he or she is a Christian is not knowing what it means because, to our detriment, there are many 'shades' of Christianity. But why should our Christianity be different from the pillars of the Faith, as recorded in the Bible? Speaking of the Bible, from my point of view, and as far as I can plainly tell from those the Lord chose and used as conduits to record and explain His Word, is that said Word must be mostly taken literally. Case in literal point, if the Bible says that Christ was raised from the dead - then it literally happened and it was not symbolic or hyperbole. I am a Traditional Christian and for me that means that whatever behaviors were Sinful when Christ Jesus walked the earth in the flesh is still so now and forevermore... though I myself have and will continue to fall short of the Lord's Glory.

The Word of God through His Christ has not changed. Why do we listen to the so called modern men and women of the Christian Faith who compromise the Word of God for popularity's sake or to be in lockstep with the modern day Caesar and secular messiah (President Obama) because these contemporary preachers share the same ethnicity. Do these modern men and women of God, who are leading many astray, raised the dead like the Apostle Paul or Saint Peter? How is it that we quote the Bible to suit our needs, cherry picking Scriptures to support our respective failings or positions on the issues of the day? To a selfish, subjective end, we quote the Apostle Paul on what Christ told him about 'Love,' but reject what Christ also told the Apostle about living the homosexual lifestyle or divorcing our many wives/husbands contrary to the rules that Christ Jesus taught. I say again though my flesh, which is deemed the "Old Man" by the Apostle Paul, may crave sleeping with every woman... does not mean that it is not Sinful because I enjoy it or because Oprah has been doing so or other pop icons in our society.

The Gospel has been and continue to be perverted and is becoming a popularity contest. I say boldly that if my church only has ten people who hear the unperverted Word of Christ Jesus as opposed to a Joel Osteen 40,000 strong flock where the Gospel is watered down and preached in lockstep with the world's take on the moral issues, the ten is far, far better morally. Any time you see and hear the Media giving much face time to a particular preacher, the Christian must be acutely aware and record it in his or her back of her mind. The Media and, moreover, the world only gives time to those preachers who are compromised and secretly agree with the world on the issues. Why is that TD Jakes is always around Oprah Winfrey... knowing the plurality of demonic beliefs she continues to hold concerning Salvation. Incidentally, one should witness TD Jakes' tortured explanation when he was questioned about the recent Supreme Court's ruling on gay marriage. Most of these modern mega-church's pastors are taking lessons from the trees/secular world to see what direction to go morally... instead of relying on the Bible.

I briefly addressed above the demonic racial pride that is plaguing the modern churches. Case in salient point, no matter the wickedness that is abound in the White House because of President Obama's policies - gay marriage and support for Abortion - many Black Christian preachers have nothing to say out of some perverted loyalty to race. Did God spare the Jews when they perverted the tenets of the Lord... and so if the Lord punished the Jews for these breaches, then what makes President Obama or moreover the descendants of Ham (Black) so special? The very pride that brought Satan down is now plaguing the church... only it is Black pride. Take the fact that the very icons and all that helped in the Civil Rights' movements have become idols, whereby it is ok to offend the Christ than say to offend Martin Luther King. To drive the point home, were I to ask many in the Black Christian churches which is worse: to be called the 'n' word or to blaspheme the name of Christ Jesus, most would choose the former as being unforgiven. I leave you with something to ponder... when we sing the old negro spiritual that 'we will overcome' in the houses of the Lord, what are we, in essence, saying about Christ' Blood, which is the Standard that overcame death, Hell, and the grave and provided the greatest of gifts to human kind - Salvation?
