Truth or Ideology
From The Master's Table Web Site
If people make decisions on Christian doctrines based on theology rather than biblical facts they degrade the truth Jesus taught. Question is…Does Christians take that into consideration any more?
Why is this Nation so involved in materialism which is greed, gluttony, addiction to drugs, alcohol and drug abuse, child abuse and rape with abortion being a legal act of murdering the most innocent among us? Ministers teaching, and people believing, we should be able to do whatever we want and that we should be able to worship God any way we want, and whatever we want to be true should be true is what has happened to not only our Nation but the Christian churches as well. No one wants to take responsibility for their actions, and no one wants to be the one to say sin is against God and man.
Not even many of those who have set themselves up as the ministers of God wants to teach the truth, because they know if they do then people will go elsewhere to hear smooth things. No one wants to teach that going against God's laws (The Ten Commandments) will result in our destruction. No one wants to repent of the many pagan god's worshipped in the Christian religion. Many are not taking this seriously and they will not till the tribulation period and what many don’t understand is that the tribulation that is coming is for the purpose to open the minds of the people that the Holy Father has and will call.
That is why the warnings to the seven churches are in the beginning of the book of revelation. Most people skip right over the first five chapters and get into the sixth so they miss the point of the complete book. Many don’t understand that the book of revelation was written for the seven churches in the end time but that is what the first chapter states…"The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands which you saw are the seven churches.” Rev 1:20
So in chapter two He begins to give the message to the seven churches and one message to the church in Thyatira He stated…"I know your works, love, service, faith, and your patience; and as for your works, the last are more than the first. "Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. "And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent. "Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds.” Rev 2:19-22
We know that these seven churches are not of some other faith but of Jesus the Messiah which makes them Christians and we see here that they are being admonished to stop committing sexual immorality and eating things sacrificed to idols. What do you suppose that may be? Could it be the round wafer which is a sun god being offered up in many churches which they learned from the Catholics? What is the Idol? Could it be the cross with the false god they call Jesus and what is the sexual immorality? Could it be homosexuality? Or as many churches are doing and more will do…perform same sex marriages.
Idolatry is the worship of idols or using things that are made such as the pagan cross to be used in our churches. Many Christians are involved with Idolatry and don't even know it but it is idolatry none the less. It is stated in prophecy for these times that Christians will be involved in idolatry. Question is will they repent and destroy these Idols that God hates when shown the truth? I have found they will not. I don't try to convert or judge anyone but just show the facts.
Read what the prophet stated in Isa 30:8-14: “Now go, write it before them on a tablet, and note it on a scroll, that it may be for time to come, forever and ever: That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children who will not hear the law of the LORD; Who say to the seers, "Do not see," and to the prophets, "Do not prophesy to us right things; speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits. Get out of the way, turn aside from the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us." Therefore thus says the Holy One of Israel: "Because you despise this word, and trust in oppression and perversity, and rely on them, Therefore this iniquity shall be to you like a breach ready to fall, a bulge in a high wall, whose breaking comes suddenly, in an instant. And He shall break it like the breaking of the potter's vessel, which is broken in pieces; he shall not spare. So there shall not be found among its fragments a shard to take fire from the hearth, or to take water from the cistern."
