The Devil at Work in the Churches

When I converted in Germany at eleven years ago, I renounced any bounds to satan, and it shudders me to think I would have to do anything with him again. Then the church leaders started to introduce breath meditations in the Bible study groups last year, like breathing Jesus in and Christ out, for example. The leaders said they wanted the church to feel and experience Jesus more. When I asked the pastor for a Biblical back up in a meeting, he said it is in the Psalms "Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD." (Psalms 150:6 KJV) Since I had experiences with the occult before I converted, I know where these things will lead people, and it is definitely not to God. I warned, but only few wanted to listen.

It took me another year until I finally left my church for this reason and the impact of the Emerging Church movement (MacLaren, Bell, Warren etc.) on the leadership. During one service a Muslim had announced from the pulpit that Muslim and Christian believers had to form an alliance... and the congregation did not even wake up then! They ignored it... Oh, I would like it when the Muslims came to Christ, but that was not even planned... It was about accepting them as Muslims, because they believed in God, too. Besides, there is no Gospel left that could be taught to them in the churches. Many pastors have been released in the past years, because they still stuck with orthodox teaching. Others had to adopt the new kind of postmodern church life... Do not ever refer to John 14:6, or all hell will break lose. I have read that they instructing folks to deal rudely with those. I found out that this tendency is going on worldwide at many of the Christian churches, and the fish stinks from the head.

Now I am looking for another church where God's Word is still preached, but this is very difficult to find here. Most are marching right away into hell... What is worse is that people who still want to keep their faith are put into corners by their brothers and sisters, and are discriminated. They usually have the feeling that they are wrong in a way, and I think it is our job to encourage them and let them know there are still Christians who hold on to God's Word.

Oh well, I think that is just what God's plan is... the falling away must come first...

There are TWO Commandments...

Jesus gave us two commandments: "Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets." (Matthew 22:36-40 KJV)

It is important to keep BOTH commandments... Just loving God will guide people into a form of legalism, and there is generally no love of God if the neighbor is hated... the other version is rather common... people love the neighbor but not God... or they think they love the neighbor... and often just mean themselves by that. Whoever loves God will also love his neighbor, and loving the neighbor is a result of loving God. One cannt go without the other one. Jesus showed the way, especially to the legalists, but He was
also obedient to the Father.

I thought I was a good human... but then I found out the truth about myself, and that I was actually condemned by God... I did not see why... at all... But by and by God taught me about my shortcomings compared to His glory... and I was shocked to find out what I was lacking... My only chance of improvement was to ask Him for it...

Just imagine... Our great God whom we cannot really know but assume by the expense of the universe which He created, this great and wunderful God humiliated Himself to a degree to be born into this world in person, and just for one reason: To die for our sins! Now we can call on Him who paid for our guilt already... Anyone who calls upon His name will be saved, for God wants to save us from eternal death! We who are His children may live forever, and it will be wonderful with God in our middle!
But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. (Matthew 1:20-23 KJV)

The Apostle Paul and the Corinthians

Paul to the Corinthians...
"And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another. For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?" (1 Corinthians 4:6-7 KJV)
The Apostle Paul was teaching the Corinthians not to overdo the tonges subject and focus on more important matters like love (in the sense of care) and prophecy... Times have not changed much, and today there are as many deceivers as then, if not more. These are times where more and more false preachers, teachers, prophets and healers turn up... We need to be careful whom to trust, and better stay with the "Old Time Religion" than run into the mouth of the devil who is running around trying to devor whomever he can get out there...

The Vine and the Branches - Paul Washer

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6 (KJV)
