Compromising standards? When we ourselves become God’s enemies

I couldn’t
be guiltier myself.  I speak with disgust
for even myself for all the areas in my own personal life where I seem to have
compromised.
We seem to live as to please people, act to receive praise from
people, speak to receive approval from people. Enough of this entire charade, it’s
time to stand for that which we know is the truth. The devil has charmed his
way into the church.
Abominations
are committed and the church, you and I look the other way.

As I prepared for
this article, I went through a deep personal reflection. This worldly age of
perversion rejection of the truth is makes shudder. Are we shifting standards to
accommodate the world rather than the world changing its own standard to fit
into God’s own?
I dug deep
into the scriptures and found many places where conforming to the worldly
standard was unacceptable.
2Corinthians
6:14-15
Be
ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath
righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with
darkness?  And what concord hath Christ
with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

 

This is an era of feminism, legalism, lesbianism and all the rest of the “–isms” that have
crept into the church. The path of a Christian is not as easy as it is purported today. Many-a-believer are caught in this web of deceit and entanglement.
Read following scriptures:
James 4:4  Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the
world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is
the enemy of God.
Exodus 23:2  Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after
many to wrest judgment:


Leviticus18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.


Leviticus18:29-30 For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people. Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the LORD your God.
There is no place for lesbians and gays and this entire sort of sexual sins and atrocities in the Kingdom of God, absolutely no place. The Bible is clear on what God expects of His children. He has not changed those standards. It is we constantly redrawing the lines and making endless changes.
It is an abomination before God, Period.
Christians don’t want to speak up any more. We want to be politically correct. We want to claim ‘to love people who totally disregard God’.
Love means we show them Jesus
Love means we speak the truth that saves a soul.
Love is not sugarcoating the truth because then it becomes a lie.
Love is not approving sin in the name of tolerance.
The bible says don’t join the multitude to do evil.
On no account should you pervert justice or refuse to speak the truth as it is written in the Holy Bible.
John 15:18-19 If the world hate
you, ye know that it hated me before it
hated you.
 If ye were of the world, the world would love
his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the
world, therefore the world hateth you.
John 17:14 I have given them thy
word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as
I am not of the world.
The world should hate you if you are a true Christian. It is no surprise.
It’s out in the open the world hates God and everything to do with Him.
When we compromise our faith, we put as selves as enemies of God.
1John 2:15-17  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of
the Father is not in him.  For all that is in the world, the lust of the
flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father,
but is of the world.   And the world passeth away, and the lust
thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
You cannot confess you love God and love the world at the
same time. You cannot serve two masters.
Luke16:13  No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and
love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye
cannot serve God and mammon.
 I
don’t want to be an enemy of God what about you? Jesus encourages us to endure
till the end.
Matthew10:22  And ye shall be hated of all men
for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
A compromising Christian tries to sit
on the fence but there is no fence in this business. It is either you are in or
out. God has called us unto righteousness we are meant to be the light of the
world. We should lead the way not follow the world.
For every persecution we face as
believers are meant to strengthen us.
1Corinthians
10:13

There hath no temptation taken you
but such as is common to man: but God is
faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but
will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear
it.
 
I have seen many who started as fervent
praying, spirit filled believers but along the way they lost it. I pray for
every such person who is thinking of walking away, that God will show them
mercy at such a time as this. This article is not meant for condemnation but a
call to repentance.
