Christian lady, (of unknown origin), who has apparently left the organized church is heard schooling the customers with her version of proper Christianity, as opposed to all those other phony church folks.
This proves my point that you can be just as apostate out of the church as you can in it. It’s a state of being more than a location. You shall know them by their deeds…..especially the more obvious ones.
Reblogged this on Spiritual Abuse Sanctuary.
For years, and years, I have watched “Christians” act out in ways that are not even close to Christian. It occurred to me that the cause may lie in the human inability to accept life on life’s terms. The preacher-the pastor-the priest-the whoever teaches forgiveness over and over, but forgiveness can become a burden too heavy to carry when human forgiveness is not possible. Often unchristian-like behaviors stem from a place of anger or rage watching the evil prosper and gain while the meek and weak carry the pain and suffering. We live in a time which is full of evil, and a time at which we all must stand and fight against those evils like never before in our lifetime. God does want us to fight.
True…the “good fight of faith”…But yes, indeed, it can be frustrating at times, especially when we see so much evil all around and seeming to prosper.
Thanks for the comment. May the Lord Jesus bless you.
Amen sister! The Lord willing, let us examine ourselves to see if we are indeed in the faith. May we compare what we believe and our practice with the Holy Word of God, by the power of the Holy Spirit, and confess and repent and walk by the Spirit in God’s mercy, grace,holiness, and love. We cannot divorce faith from practice, faulty belief will usher in godless living, and godless living bears witness to a deficient faith. God bless you:)
This is true.The Word will not profit us unless we put it to practice in our daily lives.
The Lord Jesus gives us the power to do that if we will.
Grace and peace to you,
I feel sorry for that poor lady who is obviously not very Christ-like or stable. We should pray for her. God bless you:)
Yes, Eliza. i personally feel that rejecting or refusing to accept Jesus full redemption does something to one’s mind as well as their spirit. I’ve seen this happen too many times to believe otherwise.
But you see how the world views other Christians by this type of behavior. And it does nothing to either glorify Jesus or draw men to his goodness.
Yes, we should pray for her, and all the others who’s “light is darkness”, as well as ourselves that we don’t likewise fall into that trap of self satisfaction that we have it altogether spiritually, just because we see what the other guy is doing wrong. It’s so easy to condemn another for their sins while ignoring our own.
It takes a lot of brutal self examination to look deep within ourselves and dig out the truth about our own spiritual condition, then repent and correct.This must be done if we are to grow and mature in the spirit.
The Lord Jesus Christ bless you,
