A Church For You
Posted by israeliteindeed on May 16, 2012
So many choices for today’s modern Christian!
If you want to continue fornicating and imagine you are heaven-bound, there is a church for you. They may even send you out to “reach the lost” and this will make you feel so Christian that you momentarily forget the weight of guilt on your soul.
If you love drunkenness and getting high, there is a church for you. You can smoke baby Jesus and the “Holy Ghost Bartender” can hook you up. You can laugh and cry uncontrollably and act as ridiculous as you want, all while blaming God and looking down your nose at your less spiritual brothers and sisters who walk in self-control.
If you want to be a racist and still claim Christ, there is a church for you with Jesus paintings suited to your preferred skin color, and a genealogy chart tracing your family back to the patriarchs. Doesn’t Scripture say we are saved by race through faith?
If you want to be a “militant Christian” and use carnal weapons to pull off a crusade and take the earth by force, there is a church for you. Jesus didn’t really mean what He said, and His example is irrelevant.
If you are greedy and want to feel justified in loving money, there is a church for you. (Don’t forget to bring your seed gift–the bigger the better–credit cards accepted).
If you want to stop paying taxes and rebel against all law and order, and feel righteous in so-doing, there is a church for you. “Submit yourself to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake”?–Ridiculous.
If you want to marry someone of the same sex and still sing hymns on Sunday morning, there is a church for you. Look for the rainbow flag out front and bring one of those gender-inclusive Bible versions.
If you want ecstatic experiences and happy feelings and don’t care much for truth, there are churches where brains are checked at the door, and the God of order and peace and truth is forbidden entrance and won’t get in your way.
Oh yes, there is a seat on the pew for every man, no matter what his vice or personal ambition.
BUT ETERNAL LIFE IS RESERVED FOR THOSE WHO OBEY GOD, for those who do not walk after the flesh but after the Spirit.
