False 'Assurances' that are Sold in the Church System
The creeds for the sinner are sold as honey from the church pulpits and are gobbled up hook, line and sinker. They believe they are all in good company and say, 'We are all sinners.' 'We don’t have to do anything, but we let Christ be our righteousness because we cannot practice righteousness and striving to live a holy and righteous life equates to works based salvation.'
They love to bring up examples of David who committed adultery and murder and then jump on the statement of Paul who said he was the 'chief of sinners.' In their religious pride, they will imply that everyone sins and cannot stop and will accuse those that oppose their doctrines as being self-righteous. They will even go as far to say that their sinful nature keeps them humble believing that they are 'assured' because they believe they can conveniently use God’s grace as a divine eraser over and over again to blot out their continual habitual sins.
How many have bought into?
'It doesn't matter what I do tonight, God will forgive me tomorrow?'
The Sinner's Creeds
Their creeds say that they are born sinners and Christ is God; therefore, they cannot strive to be perfect like Christ was. They cling to their cheap grace that simply means believing without the need to repent of their sin. They trust and believe they are 'assured' in Christ while continuing to practice sin believing that his blood blinds the Father from seeing their iniquity.
It is quite easy to detect those who love to hold onto their sins because they will twist Scripture to justify and defend their carnal behaviours.
They fail to understand that Scripture clearly states who is righteous in God’s eyes. Unfortunately, the righteousness of most of what is called 'Christianity' is a religion of hypocrisy where they enable deliberate sin by partaking of man's traditions.
For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows his love for us in that WHILE WE WERE STILL SINNERS, Christ died for us. – Romans 5:7-8
Those in the religious system will give lip service to Christ and then will gladly say that they are sinners. Their false creeds give them assurances that they can continue to sin under their butchered version of grace. Because they believe that Christ is God, it means that only he could truly be righteous and no man could strive to attain a sinless lifestyle like he did.
While many are consumed with twisting Scripture to justifying sin, they take no notice of the promises given to those who are considered 'saints' and 'holy ones.'
The true disciples of Christ will repent of their sins by seeking God through the real Messiah and living a life of faith and obedience that is holy and pleasing to their Father in heaven. They understand what Christ meant when he said, 'Go sin no more' because they are maturing into a life of victory.
Many claim to be followers of Christ, but remain carnal. Obedient faith is something of a foreign concept to them because they are not willing to give up what it takes to follow the way of righteousness.
Many say, 'We must crucify our sins by daily dying to them.' On the surface this sounds like a noble cause, but if we think about this statement in a deeper sense, it would necessitate coming back to sin on a daily basis.
If that is the case, then how can we claim to be a new creation when sinning daily in willful, deliberate and habitual behaviours?
Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who PRACTICES SIN is a SLAVE TO SIN. – John 8:34
The Practice of Sinning
If we ponder Christ's words, then crucifying our sins daily would mean that we would be practicing sin daily; therefore, would that not make us slaves to sin?
Those who are slaves to sin are not born again because those who are truly in Christ have become slaves of righteousness.
The SLAVE does not remain in the house forever; the SON remains forever. So if the Son sets you FREE, you will BE FREE indeed. – John 8:35-36
The reason that the religious masses are not free is that they believe in their creeds that twist Scripture to necessitate sin. They twist the context of Romans 7 and use it as the foundation of their faith and ignore chapters 6 and 8 as an admonishment to be an overcomer.
Little children, let no one deceive you. Whoever practices righteousness is righteous, as he is righteous. Whoever makes a PRACTICE OF SINNING is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. NO ONE BORN OF GOD MAKES A PRACTICE OF SINNING, for God’s seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God. – 1 John 3:7-9
Twisting Scripture to Justify Sin
For those who love to twist Romans 7 to their whims, how can you reconcile what you like to call 'the chief of sinners' as justification for sin in 1 Timothy 1:15 with this following verse?
WAKE UP from your drunken stupor, as is right, and DO NOT GO ON SINNING. For some have no knowledge of God. I say this to your shame. – 1 Corinthians 15:34
The masses are spiritually wasting away in their carnal religious system that promotes the laziness of sin by abusing God’s grace to fit their carnal human desires by replacing victory in Christ with their vain traditions. They do not work out their salvation with fear and trembling, but are proud in their false assurances in their one-time alter calls and canned sinner’s prayers in the repetition of the religious templates they have created for themselves.
Many find comfort when they hear this verse, 'For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.' Their clergy consoles them with these words as they continue to sin over and over again.
How can they not understand that they cannot obey God and be in rebellion at the same time?
Twisting Roman 7 to make others believe that Paul’s battle with practicing sin was an ongoing issue while he was an apostle is a ridiculous notion and is a lie that Satan has been using in the church system for a long time. As an apostle, he was not a sinner and taught completely otherwise with many examples.
What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? BY NO MEANS! How can we who DIED TO SIN still live in it? - Romans 6:1-2
Why would Paul say, 'stop sinning' if that was not a possibility?
Why would Scripture make a distinction between those who are of the devil and those who are born of God based on whether they are practicing sin or not?
Why would Christ say, 'Go sin no more,' if it were impossible?
But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become OBEDIENT FROM THE HEART to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, and, having been SET FREE FROM SIN, have become slaves of righteousness. – Romans 6:17-18
We must believe that the same sins that we are good at confessing over and over again treats the blood of Christ as a false cover up because there is no victory.
The blood of our Messiah brings victory and sets the captives free!
God is calling us to aim for 'perfection' in Him, which is a perfecting holiness that comes by fearing and revering God through Christ. All things are possible to those who believe that God’s grace is sufficient. His grace leads to maturity, perfection and completion as an overcomer through God's Son. It does not lead into following the traditions of man within the religious denominational cookie-cutter bubble called 'church.'
Do you really believe that you really can, 'Go and sin no more?'
If we sin, we have an Advocate on our behalf.
'If' implies we might sin, but if we changed ‘if’ to ‘when,’ then it would assume chronic behaviour.
Unfortunately, many believe in a false Christ who says ‘when’ they continue to sin over and over they have an Advocate because the slick professional church hirelings have tickled their ears. Even if they tell their indoctrinated minions to aspire to repent daily for their sins, the problem with the scenario is that it necessitates a plan to sin on a daily basis.
The clergy love to say 'we sin every day' as they devise their religious money making programs that supposedly offers 'victory.' This is the honey that is sold to the religious masses.
Do you think that sinning daily is God’s idea of perfection?
'Perfection' according to the context of Scripture can be attained by His grace and that is we are admonished to aim for it. Buying the butchered grace products in the church system is a futile endeavour that will void victory in you life. Victory is not something you pay for and that is why it is not popular in the church system. That is why so many say, 'church is a hospital for the sinners,' as they zealously try to cover the festering sins of all those who walk in through her doors by selling their religious Band-Aids.This is the epitome of creating whitewashed tombs.
Born of God
Becoming born again requires death, not trying to cover ourselves with the dressings of organized religion to make us feel better about ourselves. Obedient faith requires a willingness to die to our carnal behaviours.
To skirt around the issue of willful sin, the religious synod redefine grace for their own butchered versions that allow and accepts sinners who continue to live in habitual sin within no victory in the bondage of their religious paradigm.
Most, when they are confronted on their deliberate sin become offended. The reason for their offence is they do not believe in or strive after a lifestyle of active righteousness on a daily basis. The system of church is not is about fighting the fight to finish the course or being an overcomer, but about becoming a member of a religious social club being to what to believe and how to behave.
Righteousness is something we must work on a daily basis through the grace of God through the process of maturing through obedience and sanctification. Many reject this process and concede in believing the false notion that Christ is God. For this reason they believe it is impossible to achieve the righteousness of Christ, so there is no point in attempting to strive by obedient faith to attain it.
Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity, NOT LAYING AGAIN a foundation of repentance from DEAD WORKS and of faith toward God – Hebrews 6:1
Repenting again and again on a daily basis means there is a continual habitual lifestyle of sin in action. This is not victory in Christ.
And “If the righteous is scarcely saved, WHAT WILL BECOME OF THE UNGODLY AND THE SINNER?” – 1 Peter 4:18
Sinners are not saints and do not qualify as an overcomer because there is no victory in their lives.
How many who claim to be believers are actually children of the devil?
We should know them because they are the ones who have not stopped sinning.
These are hidden reef at your love feasts, as they feast with you WITHOUT FEAR, shepherds feeding themselves; waterless clouds, swept along by winds; fruitless trees in late autumn, TWICE DEAD, uprooted, wild waves of the sea, casting up the foam of their own shame; wandering stars, for whom the gloom of utter darkness has been reserved forever. – Jude 1:12-13
Exposing the Counterfeit Honey
It is our duty as disciples of Christ to keep others from wandering from the truth and exposing their false creeds that are sold to the religious masses. It is a matter of life and death. It is not just about confessing our deliberate sins, but overcoming them. Overcoming is being set free by being sanctified through the blood of Christ.
But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become OBEDIENT FROM THE HEART to the standard of teaching to which you were committed – Romans 6:17
Everyone can overcome sin by God’s grace. His spirit gives us the ability and desire to do His will. To concede to a lifestyle of sin and claim to a follower of Christ is the mantra of the delusional indoctrinated religious masses. The false Gospel that we are all sinners and will continue to be is a lie and a deception that so many have bought into. If people don’t wake up soon, they are going to have a rude awakening when they stand and are judged for buying into and selling a false Gospel that does not lead to victory.
This following video will challenge and anger the indoctrinated church goer as it exposes the type of honey they are buying.
- The License to Sin Doctrine
There is a deception that is in the Church system that believes Jesus Christ’s blood has covered all the believers sins from the past, present and the future.
- The Unsaved Believers within the Church System
There are a people on the fringe that “church” goers despise because they not go to “church,” celebrate Easter and Christmas, have a "pastor," nor tithe their hard earned money to him.
- Spiritual Maturity in Jesus Christ
Understanding the spiritual maturity of a believer in Jesus Christ is very important. Not knowing how to assess maturity has a direct bearing on the potential for deception.
