Ala Carte Christianity: The Churches’ End Times Menu of Perdition

"I'll take no Bible study, abortion, a little rebellion, some same sex marriage, a little pride of life and an extra order of women pastors on the side, please."
THE AMERICAN CHURCH MENU: “I’ll take no Bible study, abortion, a little rebellion, some same sex marriage,
a little pride of life and an extra order of women pastors on the side, please.”

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”
–2Timothy 4:3-4

Americans are very accustomed to “have it your way.”  This habit of picking the parts we like and ignoring what we find inconvenient has spread to the American churches.  But is Christianity a menu from which to order what one likes?

Christianity and Same Sex Marriage  – This piece starts out: “I am a Christian.”

I have no problem with telling people that, when they ask. I have no problem with other religions be they Christian, Jehovah’s Witness, or whomever, telling me. Faith is important to me, and if it is so important to someone else that they profess it, more power to them.

This was EXACTLY the stance of this writer–when he was a heathen.  There was no pretensions of being a “Christian.”  He knew exactly what he was–and a “follower of Christ” wasn’t on the menu.

We live in a country where A GREAT MANY claim to be Christians, yet do not adhere to the tenets of Christianity. In fact, disobedience is a boldly-announced part of this ethos.

Such people place God’s Word in the “Options I have looked at but have declined to follow” list.  IF one is a Christian, one follows the commands of God’s Word.

It’s that simple.

“If you love me, keep my commandments.”
John 14:15

“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”
Matthew 5:17-18

The linked piece then goes on to inform readers that the author is a Christian who’s okay with same sex marriage.

And what did the Law have to say about homosexuality?

“Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”
Leviticus 18:22

“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”
Leviticus 20:13

Lest anyone think that homosexuality was only a sin in the Old Testament, the apostle Paul wrote about it several times and in very easy-to-understand sentences.

“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality,”
1 Corinthians 6:9

The two Greek words translated in this phrase refer to the active and passive partners in a homosexual relationship.

Pretty clear, huh?

Now CHRISTIANS–as opposed to the churches–are not to condemn homosexuals–or anyone.  CHRISTIANS are to offer them a way out of their enslavement to sin–just as Christians are to offer any who are lost a way out.

CHRISTIANS are to give homosexuals the gospel.

BUT only 2 percent of American church-goers share their faith.

(Actually, only 2 percent of American church-goers CLAIM to share their faith–which is something different from actually sharing it. And “sharing one’s faith” is NOT necessarily preaching/sharing the gospel. So a good deal LESS than 2 percent is closer to the mark.)

Which means that AT LEAST 98 percent of the people who sit in churches and call themselves “Christian” in America ARE NO SUCH THING: they’re pretenders, counterfeits, tares; just as lost as the homosexuals which so dismay them.

The End Times Church of the Tares

These church-goers are not godless: they all have their own little gods they’ve created.

But their little gods are not God Almighty–and those who worship such little gods are not Christians.

They are idol worshipers.

Homosexuals and Apostate Christians: The Symbiotic Relationship

Pagan Anti-Homosexual Church Cults

IF one does not follow God’s Word, one is something other than a Christian–and the god that person is following is an idol erected to receive the worship the God of the Bible deserves.  But America is a land of idols.  This is confirmed by the many times one hears the phrase “My god wouldn’t (or would) do so-and-so.”

One can be a Christian.

Or, one be a same sex marriage supporter.

But one cannot be both.  It’s really very simple.

EXCEPT in apostate America which specializes in turning sin into virtue. Americans think they can “have it all.”  Well, they can’t.  Not on this topic anyway.

However, church-goers can choose to be deceived and believe they can “have it their way.

Christianity is not an arena for debate and discussion. One doesn’t get to have an opinion on something about which God has already spoken.  While Americans are used to proclaiming “I think” and “I feel,” these have no place in true Christianity.  Christianity is not a menu.  One either follows God’s commandments and is a Christian.

OR one picks and chooses and is not.  One can go to a church, own a Bible, and boldly proclaim that he is a Christian–but that doesn’t mean anything when it’s all said and done.

Jesus was quite clear on the matter.

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
Matthew 7:21-23

When one picks and chooses which of God’s commandments he will obey, one is REALLY choosing eternal death and destruction.

Has the reader been pretending?

Not sure?

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
2 Corinthians 4:3
