People in the church are being groomed to accept lies as truth. They are little by little accepting twisted music, twisted movies and tv shows and things that change the gospel and twist truth. They make excuses for it and still promote it knowing there is falsities in it.
The church has gone soft. I see things being accepted and excuses that are putting a wedge between who Jesus is and what is acceptable.
The more people are desensitized to the new age and progressive Christianity the more they accept and the farther away from Jesus they walk. Instead of being so concerned about hurting someone’s feelings if you call out a heretical teacher how about we tighten the reigns on what we will allow as a whole. We need to stop excusing things that aren’t of God, and Stop being lazy. We must be researching things when we are told there are problems.
The whole concept of chew up the meat and spit out the bones is not a biblical concept.
I understand liking people and not wanting to say anything bad and be wrong but it really isn’t that hard to find out if something is true or not to a certain degree. We wonder why we have so many people who say they are Christian but have no clue what it means but the idea of being a Christian is all that is taught.
Christian’s need to be willling to use the discernment that they have. So many switch it off and instead of guarding Gods truth they help to confuse others by adopting the falsities. To stand for Gods truth and say something that opposes it is not of God is what we are called to do. That is spiritual warfare.
Jesus loves you is the gospel of today. We allow our entertainment to be things that are not of God and then wonder why compromise happens in other places.
When we look at scripture it tells us to hold firm to the truth and to treasure it. Spiritual warfare is doing just that. If we want to guard our thoughts and hearts it’s with truth, God’s truth. If we want to stand firm against the schemes of the evil one it is with God’s word. That is our defense. That is our guidance and our treasure.
When spiritual warfare is talked it says
“We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ,”
2 Corinthians 10:5 NASB1995
If we want to fight the good fight and stand firm we must discern what is good and pure and right and true and stand up for it. Stand firm in it, and tear down speculations brought up against the one who is truth. We cannot love our neighbor in lies. We cannot help them and give them hope if it isn’t truly true.
Stand firm my friends. Love God, love your neighbors and stand for the truth!
