Why is America Crumbling? Today’s “Christianity” is Not Biblical Christianity — GREATEST Awakening Coming!

Today’s “Christianity” is not Biblical Christianity. Being born-again is just the start of us abiding in Christ, walking not according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. These are the sons of God, Paul says in Romans 8:1-17. Then we have “no condemnation,” because we’re actually in Christ Jesus, having clear consciences before God and men, like Paul always practiced (Acts 24:16).

Gallup: Culture, Not Churches, Influencing Americans Views of the Bible — ‘Christians’ not salt & light

“History fails to record a single precedent in which NATIONS SUBJECT TO MORAL DECAY have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a SPIRITUAL AWAKENING to overcome the moral lapse, OR a PROGRESSIVE DETERIORATION leading to ultimate national disaster.” – Douglas MacArthur

Gallup: Culture, Not Churches, Influencing Americans Views of the Bible

It’s clear in recent decades, poll after poll shows the extent of the biblical ignorance and moral decline in America which has lead to tragic consequences. A new Gallup survey supports recent Barna and Pew Research, and the takeaways are consistent: it’s not the church or Christians who are impacting people’s worldview and perceptions of the Bible, it’s modern culture.

The fact God’s Word has rapidly been eradicated from our society is stunning. Continue reading “Gallup: Culture, Not Churches, Influencing Americans Views of the Bible — ‘Christians’ not salt & light”

OUR WOKE LEADERS’ ASSAULT ON WESTERN CULTURAL VALUES

In the name of diversity and tolerance, American social, governmental, corporate, and even religious leaders are pushing or buckling under as the woke agenda sweeps the Western world in promoting homosexuality, abortion, transgenderism, and the dismantling of all traditional conservative and Christian values. But there’s an even more sinister hidden agenda behind all these claims of protecting the “freedom to choose” and tolerance. By giving gay marriage, abortion, contraception, and transgender alterations legal status, and protection under federal law, those that oppose these issues can then be legally prosecuted under hate and anti-discrimination laws. In other words, they are not content with your toleration or even the ability of private woke corporations to censor you and all that you oppose—they want you legally silenced, if not removed from society entirely.

“Better to speak the truth that hurts and then heals, than falsehood that comforts and then kills”

We must actually abide in Christ to “be in Christ,” to have “no condemnation” — saving faith, peace and unity.

Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God? — “There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are IN CHRIST Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT”

“It is better to speak the truth that hurts and then heals, than falsehood that comforts and then kills. It is better to be hated for telling the truth than to be loved for telling a lie. It is better to stand alone with the truth, than to be wrong with a multitude.” – Adrian Rogers

Michael Kruger: God’s Word in the Early Church — Canonical Gospels vs ‘Gospel of Thomas’ etc. – 4 Distinctions

“The word apocrypha is from the Greek word for “obscure” or “hidden.” The apocryphal gospels are so named since they were not prominent in the early church.” (What are the apocryphal gospels?)

Canonical gospels
I. The earliest
II. The only ones with a credible connection to the apostles
III. Lack the legendary embellishments of the later gospels
IV. Recognized as authoritative from a very early date

Minute-14 “The only gospels written in the first century are Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.”

~”When those gospels were published, there were other people still alive who had seen those things take place.”

Apocryphal gospels mentioned (the lost gospels) — all written much later:
Gospel of Thomas
Infancy Gospel of Thomas: much later, nightmarish Jesus
Gospel of Peter: Late 2nd, early 3rd century
Gospel of Phillip
Gospel of Mary
Gospel of the Twelve

“Why does our culture love lost gospels, because they don’t want there to be one way. … You can just pick the Jesus you happen to prefer.”

21:30 How we know John wrote John: Irenaeus states John wrote John, which he got from Polycarp (his mentor), who was mentored by John himself.

Not one example of these lost gospels being included in a codex with any of the canonical gospels, or a list containing both.

We have 5,700 manuscripts of the New Testament, and several thousand copies of the canonical gospels. Compare to three copies of the Gospel of Thomas and the Gospel of Mary

Matthew, Mark, Luke and John were the only gospels that were read, valued and appreciated by the early church fathers.

They Don’t Want You To Know This! This Will Change Everything You Know About ‘Pride’

“Haughty pride is the opposite of the spirit of humility that God seeks.”

“Pride has been called the cancer of the soul, the beginning of all sin, and sin in its final form.”

“Pride is viewed as a great sin and rebellion against God because it presumes to possess excellence and glory that belong to God alone.”

“Prideful people treat others with contempt and cruelty.”

“Pride leads to disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.”

“Pride is taking the glory that belongs to God alone and keeping it for ourselves.”

“Pride is essentially self-worship.”

“Work out your salvation; pride has to go.”

“Those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”

We are not to boast about ourselves. If we want to boast, then we are to proclaim the glories of God. … It is what God says about us that makes the difference.”

“Do not be caught in this trap, pride. Fight and get delivered by the Spirit of God.”

“Don’t Downplay Hell” – Bill Wiese, “The Man Who Went To Hell” Author of “23 Minutes In Hell”

– –

Why do so many people attempt to soften the subject of hell? Why do they try to make it seem less horrifying, less severe, or even non-existent? The main reason is that they cannot reconcile a loving God with a God who would allow such intense suffering. People have actually created a god in their minds who doesn’t exist.

Love, joy and peace comes from abiding in Christ, walking not according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

Galatians 5:22 But the FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT is LOVE, JOY, PEACE, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, 23 gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 THOSE WHO BELONG TO CHRIST HAVE CRUCIFIED THE FLESH with its passions and lusts.
