If you've read Life with Lynnie (LwL) entries for the last couple of days, you'll know that I've been writing about love. God's love.
As I have mentioned in previous entries, there are some who teach a false gospel. A gospel that only speaks of God's love.
While God is love. God is not just that, alone. While He is our God of love, He is also our God of wrath. He destroyed the earth by flooding it, saving only Noah, his family and the ark filled with pairs of animals, birds, etc., that God wished to inhabit the world after the waters receded.
Unfortunately, there are some Christian denominations that never speak of God's wrath.
Some false teachers/preachers only speak of God's love, and never of God's wrath, even though the Bible speaks of God's wrath in Romans 1:18, "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;".
In essence, those who support those ideas of God not being wrathful, are leading people astray, for they are not teaching a full gospel message; one that every person on earth needs to hear and acknowledge.
Some are teaching people that all they have to do is love Jesus. Well, just as Satan uses partial truths to make untruths seem real enough to lead some astray, people who teach this, are doing likewise.
Oooohhh, dear. This will spark some outrage, for sure. Because, some of those who teach only about God's love, also teach another false idea.
Some are teaching that because Jesus died for those who believe, and because our sins are forgiven when we come to Christ, some teach that it is okay to continue with having sin in our lives.
This is absolute heresy.
The fact is, Jesus said:
* If ye love me, keep my commandments (John 14:15).
* He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him (John 14:21).
* If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love (John 15:10).
Some people are teaching that because Jesus gave us only two (2) commandments in the New Testament covenant, for example in Luke 10:27, "And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.", that it is okay to continue with sin in our lives.
Ah, now we're getting somewhere. Unfortunately, it will have to wait until tomorrow!
Until next time...
