Today, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll finish addressing the issue of not accepting truth from God.
The topic today, relates to how there are many church groups and people who claim to be working for the Lord, who do not accept God's Word, the Bible. And, allow sin to be acceptable.
On Facebook (FB), someone I know posted this Youtube link entitled, Beware the Emerging Church Movement: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1930C1GmMqM&feature=player_embedded I found it to be worthwhile listening to and encourage you to do so.
Hopefully, you listened to and/or watched this video, showing Pastor Charles Lawson of Temple Baptist Church preaching/teaching about Revelation 13:12. And, absolute truth.
As we hear, anyone can be non-liturgical, and still be a believer.
God is not concerned about what or how you wear your clothing, etc. He's most concerned about what you believe in.
Here is an article published by The Independent (UK) entitled, Pope Francis assures atheists: You don't have to believe in God to go to heaven: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/pope-francis-assures-atheists-you-dont-have-to-believe-in-god-to-go-to-heaven-8810062.html.the
Unfortunately, this last link won't open up to the article, anymore. It did when I first posted it, here.
Hopefully, this is not due to some sort on online problem.
Hopefully, it is due to someone in charge realizing that the whole idea of the idea that anyone can go to heaven without believing in Jesus (who is God), was untruth.
People who do not agree with knowing and/or loving, trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ are not truly our brothers and sisters in Christ.
False teaching/preaching is leading people astray. Even when people go to church and sit in a pew every week, to worship. And, causing separation between those who worship in different church groups.
It seems that some groups will preach/teach in a way to adjust to society's lifestyles. Like those groups who are accepting sin, within their ministries.
Sin is NOT acceptable to God.
Never was. Never will be.
However, God will be forgiving of us, if we fall into sin. But, only if we do as He told us to do. Meaning, confess our sin.
Just as we read, in 1 John 1:9, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
By confessing our sin, we will be cleansed. Not by confessing to some pastor, priest or minister.
By confessing to God.
By confessing to God, it tells Him that you are sorry for what you've done that is unacceptable to Him. If your confession is true and real, you will then want to sin no more.
You'll turn away from the sin.
Until next time...
