Our Conformity to Christ: Its All About Progress Not Perfection.
“David’s sin seems so much worse than Saul’s, yet the Bible calls David ‘a man after God’s own heart.’ What made the difference? It was their response when confronted with their sin. Saul defended, justified, and excused himself. David humbly confessed and repented of his sin …” - NLDM
Remember that the man who truly repents is never satisfied with his own repentance..there will be something to be repented of even in our best repentance -for repentance is the continual renewal of our mind, our thoughts and beliefs! – C.H. Spurgeon
Repentance will not make you see Christ, but to see Christ will give you repentance. – C.H. Spurgeon
Supposed “Christians” supporting homosexuality.
I am seeing waaay too many supposed “Christians” supporting homosexuality. Many of you whose blogs I follow and that profess to believe in Jesus Christ have lead to me believe that those of you “Christians” who support the gay “culture” haven’t been regenerated (decisionism isn’t regeneration and is the greatest modern day heresy around). JESUS CHRIST NOR HIS APOSTLES APPROVED OF HOMOSEXUALITY AND CONSIDERED IT SIN. I can bring up scripture for days regarding this issue but I wont unless asked.
Now when you are a TRUE Christian your heart has been regenerated by the working of the Holy Spirit and you began to grow more into the image of Jesus Christ. Are you reading your Bible on a daily or consistent basis? are you going to God more and more in prayer? ARE YOU DESIRING GOD? do you find yourself being disgusted with what’s on t.v. or the provocative images on tumblr? has GOD began to separate you from the world and it’s ways? or do you find yourself agreeing with what the world does and wanting to fit in with the crowd and save face?
Being a REAL CHRISTIAN means that you LOVE WHAT GOD LOVES AND HATE WHAT GOD HATES. You’re going to tell me that you LOVE THE VERY THINGS THAT NAILED YOUR SUPPOSED LORD TO THE CROSS? Now am I telling a fellow Christian to hate a HOMOSEXUAL MAN, WOMAN, AND OR CHILD? NO. But I am saying that you should HATE THE SIN OF IT. Now you can quote me little cliche’s on bumper stickers or quotes you’ve seen on Tumblr in front of a captivating image but unless it is the WORD OF GOD IT COUNTS FOR NOTHING!
You’re probably thinking “you don’t know me OR them so stop judging!” but I DON’T NEED TO KNOW YOU OR ANYONE ELSE! I KNOW THE WORD OF GOD AND I KNOW THAT IT IS THE SAME FOR EVERY HUMAN BEING ON THIS PLANET! IF you’re going to justify what GOD HATES and trust your “heart” then I advise you to read the book of Jeremiah.
Now most of you “Christians” will write me with hate and be quick to justify the world, a world that God says if any man chooses to be a friend of makes him or herself an enemy of the living GOD. So I would like to end my concern with an example: Jesus said “YOU WILL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUIT”.
Now if you were to look in the archive of my blog prior to the middle of January you would see pornographic images, pictures of false idols (i.e. rappers, actors, etc.) pics of weed, alcohol, and EVERYTHING ELSE A GODLESS MAN WOULD LOVE TO INDULGE IN. Why? because my heart wasn’t regenerated by the HOLY SPIRIT. I was lost and indulging in the world because I was part of the world. BUT if you look from the beginning of January and keep scrolling through page after page slowly but surely you will began to see my REPENTANCE KEEP GROWING and those types of images becoming non-existent. WHY? because we blog what we’re interested in and what we can relate to based off of the state of our heart and because I was REGENERATED! I MYSELF AM CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST AND THE WORLD AND ALL IT’S WAYS AND LUSTS ARE DEAD TO ME AS WELL! I AM A NEW CREATION IN CHRIST!!!
I do not want to be hated BUT if I’m going to be hated I would rather be hated for warning you who live a lifestyle of sin and who deceive yourselves to be saved. No, there is no such thing as a perfect repentance but if you’re supporting what GOD hates I would be very concerned. It’s is better to be lost then to think of yourself as “saved”. At least a lost person KNOWS they’re lost. I love you and as a brother in Christ I must tell you these things.
