Preaching the Gospel vs The Methods of This World

another-blah-blah-blah-gospel

WIN SOULS, NOT DEBATES

Using the tools and methods of this present world is a pitfall and a snare for the Christian.

QUESTIONS FOR ATHEISTS – There are times that Christians shoot themselves in their foot–though they have the best of intentions.  A website that proposes to settle questions about Christianity based on evidence, proof and logic presents the linked article.

The premise sounds reasonable: atheists are usually asking Christians questions (which is not a bad thing actually), so why not “turn the tables” and ask the atheists a few questions?

However, while this sounds good, there are several things wrong with this approach, which is not very biblical.

1- This appeals to the Christians’ ‘pride of life’ and moves the focus off of Jesus Christ.

“For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
1 John 2:16

Do Christians want to win souls or win debate points?  These discussions are not winnable using the world’s methods.

The Christian is to win souls–not debates.

“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.”
–Proverbs 11:30

The gospel is the tool that God uses–not rhetoric or logic or evidence or proof.  Specifically, the preaching of the gospel.

“For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.”
1 Corinthians 1:21

Sure, Christians are human: they chafe at the world’s labels of “uneducated,” “illiterate” and  “idiots.”  (The linked articles’ words, not this writer’s.) But is engaging the unbeliever on his own turf the answer?  Is appealing to the atheists’ reason the way Christians are supposed to approach unbelievers?

Will a debate over evidence and proof win one soul to Christ?

The Bible says it won’t.

“Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.”
–Colossians 4:5-6

We’re to walk in wisdom and focus on the cross of Christ.  When Christians lose focus of the true issue, they exchange their most powerful weapon for the tools of the enemy.

Christians seem to be doing a lot of this lately: fighting by the world’s rules of engagement.

2- The questions presented in this article are a good example of trying to fight the enemy on his terms.  They sound good to the Christian–but will likely prove ineffective at winning the souls of atheists.  If the author had visited websites frequented by atheists, he would already know that atheists engage most of the questions presented in this article.

Atheists already have answers to most of the questions presented.  Sure, as Christians we believe that their answers are wrong, but atheists don’t.

So then we’re back to square one again.

And Christians should keep one important point in mind: it is God who offers salvation as a free gift, not us.  We merely are the presenters, nothing more.  Contrary to much of what’s being taught, being more “persuasive” has nothing to do with whether an unbeliever truly experiences a a new birth or not.

3- Some of the questions don’t even sound good to the Christian.

“How can the Second Law of Thermodynamics be reconciled with progressive, naturalistic evolutionary theory?”

Is this the way to win souls?  Quick: all readers who can recite the Second Law of Thermodynamics, raise your hands.

“How do you explain the thousands of people who have experienced heaven or hell and have come back to tell us about it?”

Though “dying” or “being sent back from the dead” to testify of heaven or hell is a fairly common phenomena in our own times, it is not biblical.

“Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house: For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.  Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.”
Luke 16:27-31

It’s very human to want to win an argument.  However, nowhere in the Bible is winning arguments mentioned as a method of soul winning.

Yes, we’re to “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered” (Jude 3)–but that is among believers, not unbelievers (who are not part of the “common salvation” to which Jude refers).

Yes, “Christian apologetics” is speaking in defense of Christianity.  But much of Christian apologetics is practically concerned with the issues raised by false teachers and those who are supposed to be Christians.  False teachers was the theme of  Jude.

For Christians who believe we are living in the end times, we’re given the formula to be “overcomers.”

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
Revelation 12:11

Preach the gospel and let the atheists win their debate points.

At the end of the day, Christians will be happy they did.

HAS the reader placed his faith in winning arguments, discussions and debates?

THERE is still time to change direction (repent) and place one’s trust in Almighty God and His Son, Jesus Christ.

Ministering to the Lost

Saved, but most are Lost

“For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
–Luke 19:10

Recently, an acquaintance of this writer died.

This led to the inevitable discussion on the person’s salvation. The church folk seemed fascinated to know one person’s judgment on whether the deceased was saved or not.

This led to further discussions on what it is that a Christian can do for the lost.

These discussions have included the various folk tales, fables and folderol which circulates in the churches concerning those who are lost and those who are saved.

The Bible declares there are three things a Christian may do for the lost.

  1. Preach (share) the gospel of Jesus Christ (By far the most important).
  2. Pray for the one who is lost.
  3. Offer the lost the example of someone who has eternal salvation through Jesus Christ and the peace such salvation brings.

And that is basically it.

Accordingly, this writer did all he could for the deceased while she was alive.

While it’s not certain she accepted the gospel,there are reasons to believe she finally did.

Those who are lost hear the gospel and either accept or reject it. The great majority of mankind will reject the gospel message.

A few will accept it.

MANY church folk who are NOT saved (but who either pretend to be or are kept in ignorance by wolves) will be offended when offered the gospel message of Jesus Christ.

So be it.

“And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.”
–Matthew 24:10

A Christian will not be offended at being offered the gospel of Jesus Christ.

A tare/pretender/counterfeit will certainly be.

MORE: Many Shall be Offended: The End Times Church of the Tares

It appears that most church-goers reject the Biblical prescription for the lost in favor of injecting their own “know-how” into the matter. This allows them to wring their hands in faux concern over whether they had “done enough.”

Which is why the churches 1- do not preach the gospel; 2- are filled with so many who are obviously lost; and, 3- are in the sad shape they find themselves to be in today.

“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”
–Mark 16:15

 

DOES the reader know someone who is lost?

WOULD the reader like to help this person?

DOES the reader obey the Bible or the teachings of men?

The Desperate Hopelessness of Modern Youth

desperate hopelessness of the youth

“And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”
–Matthew 24:12

[NOTE: Lest any think the following are conditions of the youth only: they are not. The piece is addressed to youth because the youth,–though heavily indoctrinated 24/7 by society, popular culture, entertainment, churches, music, TV, movies, news, government and education–have, for the most part, not yet settled into the moral concrete of routine. Unlike the vast majority of their elders, the youth still hold to the idea that they can change their lives.  Thus, though their hopelessness is great, their hope might yet be greater.]

From a trip around the Internet to survey the various sites of the youth, it’s apparent they are the victims of a hopelessness.

This hopelessness so permeates their being, most are completely unaware of it–except during the times when it drags them down into a sad sort of desperate despair.

Many who maintain such Internet outposts try to console themselves using the various nostrums of the world.

And so, their sites are decorated with inane quotes by the nonentities the popular culture has chosen to exalt; pictures of newly-minted celebrities whose shelf life has already expired; and/or thoughts and comments of others similarly disoriented and disaffected with their lives.

Having been taught that the only truth is nothing more than a collection of old, worn-out, no-longer-believed stories, the youth are rudderless and thus search for some solid ground amidst the cesspool into which they have been thrown. Again, not being familiar with the truth, they attempt to hold onto those things offered by the world which cannot last.

What follows are a few of the things onto which youth desperately attempt to cling.

THE VANITY OF MODERN LOVE

The youth place much stock in LOVE.

Yet, not knowing what love is, they grope about as if blind. They KNOW what they have been told is not love, yet they lack the direction or knowledge for finding true love.

Modern Romance: Love Which Isn’t

Real, true love is something that is enjoyed by BOTH people; the modern version is a PERversion. One person seemingly in control, the other (who is convinced he or she is in “love“), is along for the ride and provides most, (if not ALL) of the trappings of a loving union.

Real, true love is NOT a spell that one person alone is under. That is NOT love. That is obsession, idol worship, enslavement, compulsion, a form of control, something: but it is NOT love.

Often the enslaved one will attribute the unhappiness as a natural “part of being in love.”

After all, don’t countless songs and TV shows claim this very thing happens? Doesn’t everyone know about the “pain of love“?

Those cool singers wouldn’t lie, would they?

Their search for love in the world will be never-ending: the world offers many things–lusts, appetites, control, power, wealth, knowledge, pleasure, honors–but one thing it cannot offer is true love.

What the world DOES offer is a cheap, plastic version of love.

It is this cheap, tawdry version which the youth know because it is the only love offered by the world. This cheap, plastic version focuses on SELF–when true love is, almost by definition, selfLESS.

THE VACUITY OF SELF

Vacuitynoun va·cu·i·ty \va-ˈkyü-ə-tē, və-\: the state of lacking any real meaning, importance, or intelligence

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”
–2Timothy 3:1-5

Men shall be lovers of their own selves.

God’s Word does not lie. It’s truths depend upon He who created everything and knows the end from the beginning. There is no coincidence. Men in the end times are certainly lovers of their own selves. The youth have been relentlessly indoctrinated with this defect of self until it is second nature.

The Age of Self is–has been!–upon us.

The daily devotion of the youth is a celebration of all things self. Their vision is an endlessly inward-looking one.

The selfie is the end times art form.

Selfishness has been rebranded to be something (ANYTHING!) other than selfishness.

But where did the youth learn the mind-numbing ennui which springs from a ceaseless celebration of self?

It has not only been taught, it has been indoctrinated: by the schools, by the culture, by the government/media.

It is a feeling familiar to even those at the top of the societal food chain.

“Thus the days of life are consumed, one by one, without an object beyond the present moment; ever flying from the ennui of that, yet carrying it with us; eternally in pursuit of happiness, which keeps eternally before us.”
–Thomas Jefferson, Letters 1743-1826, To Anne Willing Bingham Paris, February 7, 1787

In fact, such hopelessness is magnified among those whose highest allegiance is to themselves or other idols of this world.

MORE

 

“Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.”
–Mark 13:12

Not being very old, the youth know only what surrounds them: they have no memories of an earlier time when pockets of normality still remained.

What they ARE familiar with is a distortion/perversion of that which, at one time, might have been good.

THE PERVERSION OF FAMILY

“Without natural affection…”
Romans 1:28-32 and  2Timothy 3:1-5

So many of the youth have never known the comfort or security a healthy family life affords.

Fewer still have known the comfort, security and PEACE a healthy family life in a Jesus-centered family provides. (We are referring to a true Jesus-centered family, not one of the counterfeit models the world and churches are eager to offer which bring reproach upon the name of Jesus Christ.)

The Bible predicted as much for the end times in which we live.

THE PERVERSION OF THE CHURCHES

“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”
–2Corinthians 11:13-15

There is a certain segment of the youth which have been reared in “church families.”

While a portion of this group may have better manners or might pay a more convincing lip service to God Almighty, they cannot know God because the churches have offered them their idols instead of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The youth, like many of their elders, have been submerged in a spiritually deadly form of pagan idol worship, traditions of men, occult rituals and warmed-over witchcraft so long, they believe it to be true worship of the living God.

IN FACT, the churches have so successfully substituted other gospels for the true gospel of Jesus Christ, the great majority of the youth–particularly those found in the churches–do not know the gospel, let alone are able to share it with someone else.

THE PERVERSION OF UNITY

“Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.

The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.”
–Luke 12:51-53

The Lord Jesus Christ said that he came to bring a sword, not peace.

Yet, the end times churches, media and world relentlessly preach their mantra of “unity!” For a wicked world, unity becomes more important than Jesus Christ or God’s Word.

And so, the end times world will be united–for Satan.

MORE

CONCLUSION

“Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”
–Luke 18:8

And so like salmon swimming upstream, the youth struggle against the deception which surrounds them; that’s been fed to them their entire lives; that, even to this day, continues to misinform their existence about the real world.

Virtual Reality and other Simulated Realities Are End Times Deceptions

This constant struggle produces not only a feeling of being worn out: its ultimate end is a feeling of being overwhelmed; of a hopelessness; of a despair which itself leaves its victims desperate and gasping for breath.

The youth, like all men, have a choice.

Sadly, MOST will follow their elders down the broad and easy road to perdition.

However, a FEW will make the radical decision to break free, swim against the popular tide and move to the truth.

Does the reader know something about the world is not right?

Would the reader like to know what that “something” is?

There is yet a little time to change direction (repent) and know the truth.

Workers of Iniquity Need a Savior Too

Workers of Iniquity

“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”
–John 3:36

Living a Lie From Generation to Generation

From time-to-time, the “workers of iniquity” are mentioned.

It’s usually helpful to define one’s terms. This is how this writers uses the term “workers of iniquity.”

By “workers of iniquity,” it is not meant that these folks are particularly evil or anti-social.  Some appear to be upright citizens of their community. Many are friendly and others are what might be even referred to as “helpful” or “good neighbors.”

A great many are church-goers.

What then?

When this writers refers to “workers of iniquity,” he is usually alluding to those folks who 1) work for the enemy in advancing his end times plans, both great and small; 2) worship other gods; and yet 3) live a lie by pretending to worship God Almighty and His Son, Jesus Christ.

Usually, these folks come from families in which generations have lived this particular lie, passing it down from the parents to the children. They most usually–though not always–are people of substantial means and live materially-comfortable lives.

Still, they are workers of iniquity and as such, abide in the wrath of God.

“The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.”
–Psalm 5:5

That being the case, it’s useful to keep in mind that the workers of iniquity are sinners like everyone else: no better, no worse.

And sinners need a savior–whether or not they currently believe in that savior.

And believers are to preach the gospel to sinners–even if those sinners become offended–which is usually the case.

The workers of iniquity have allegiances which run counter to Jesus Christ. The great majority of them will reject the free gift of salvation offered to the sinner through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Which makes it all the more important they hear the gospel so that a few of them may be saved.

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.”
–John 4:47

Does the reader have doubts about the path he is on?

There is still yet a little time to change that path.

Other Gospels + Traditions of Men = Vain Worship

ANOTHER GOSPEL: The churches only preach other gospels.

“Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.”
Mark 7:7-9

Let no man deceive you.

Christian churches in America are awash with gospels.

American church folk may hear a gospel message more times than other people around the world combined.

They hear the Prosperity gospel, the gospel of man, the gospel of self-actualization, the Word of Faith gospel, the gospel of pull-yourself-up-by-your-own bootstraps (“God helps those who help themselves“), the gospel of Live your best life now!, the “We are all gods” gospel, the New Age gospel, the occult christianity gospel…

In fact, Americans church dwellers hear more gospels in a week of viewing so-called christian TV than those in most other countries hear in a lifetime.

A tiny, tiny portion of American church-goers may even hear the gospel of Jesus Christ.

When what seems right to man is added to what God has declared, then the result is “another gospel.”

Galatians 1:8 and 9 make clear the result of other gospel messages.

Believers are to live by the Word of God.

We are to walk by faith.  When this walk is compromised by following after the traditions of men–no matter how “spiritual” these traditions may sound–then the entire walk can be compromised.

It makes no matter from what men those traditions originate: Greek or Jew, Chinese or Catholic, science or pagan.

They are still the traditions of men.

In the American churches of 2013, Jewish traditions are all the rage.

Sometimes, they are used to augment scriptures.

Sometimes, they are used to supplement scripture.

Sometimes they are used to diminish scripture.

Sometimes, they are substituted for the clear meaning of God’s Word itself.

In some cases, these traditions are added to and become part of the gospel itself.

If what one knows are the traditions of men, then when hard times come, those same traditions of men are what will be leaned upon.

And the traditions of men will fail.

Unfortunately, this will be the result of preaching, sitting under and believing another gospel.

It makes no difference what one calls it; it makes no difference how it is prettied up: Another gospel is another gospel.

And other gospels and traditions of men are both sure signs of the vain worship of God Almighty and His Son, Jesus Christ.

“Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.”

Those in the churches sit under other gospels and honor the traditions of men.

IS the reader one of those who worship in vain?

ATHEISTS and the Evidence of God Almighty

sunrise-silhouette-ID-10038217-Chaiwat-FDP

“IF ONLY I could talk to him and make him see.”

INFORMATION which will change the mind of the atheist (“open his eyes“) by the sheer power of its force of logic.

This is a fable which is near and dear to the heart of the pretenders in the churches.

Evidence for God: Answers for agnostics and atheists – There are no man-made answers which will satisfy the atheist.

Atheism is a belief system and to assert that there is no God takes an incredible amount of faith; albeit, of the negative kind.

Christian” websites which purport to give “solutions” to the atheist are really sites which, at best, preach to the converted.

At worst, they provide false and misleading information.

ONLY the grace of God can open the eyes of the atheist.

NO amount of logic, reasoning, “evidence” or the like will open the eyes of the spiritually deceived.

“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

Those who inhabit the churches will offer ANYTHING–as long as it is a substitute to preaching the gospel. This is one reason challenging atheists to a “debate” is such a popular–but utterly worthless–idea.

THE GOSPEL

“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

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

Other Gospels: A Sign of the End Times

Other Gospels, Other Deceptions

“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”
–Galatians 1:8-9

Pretend christianity sure does love it some fake and phony gospels: there’s no clearer sign of the end times.

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”
–2Timothy 3:1-2,5

There is no better illustration of “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof” than the false (other) gospel.

The one argument that might make a hardline atheist stop and think… – This is from a supposedly Christian website. Is it referring to the gospel?

No, of course not.

It’s about using the logic of the writer.

The counterfeits will TALK about the gospel; they just won’t offer it to anyone.

Instead they offer the false substitutes of other gospels, which have no power to save. This is the reason so many counterfeits (Ken Ham) are eager to debate atheists or argue with them. They offer logic, reasoning, facts–anything but the gospel.

Wouldn’t want to see anyone get saved now, would they?

False gospels (other gospels) LOOK good–if one doesn’t look too closely–but they are powerless to save. These fraudulent “ways to salvation” are especially popular in the pagan buildings we call “the churches.”

  • Altar calls.
  • Sinner’s prayers.
  • Pledge cards.
  • Give your heart to Jesus pleas.
  • Invite Jesus to live in your heart come-ons.
  • ABC’s of Salvation

John 3:16 is even offered as a gospel! Now, John 3:16 is a wonderful verse–but it is NOT the gospel.

The overwhelming deception of other gospels is one of the true signs of the end times.

The gospel of Jesus Christ is the power of God unto salvation. Other gospels may look good, sound good and tickle the ears of the unwary. But they are not the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Accept no substitutes!

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”
–2Timothy 3:1,5

Watchmen on the Walls

"Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:
If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;"

watchman-wall-pd "Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

--Ezekiel 33:1-6

More important than pomp, popularity, riches or recognition: we will be guilty of no man's blood upon our hands.
