Why does it seem like much of America respects Islam’s evil agenda, and the LBGTQ agenda, but does not respect the Church’s righteousness? Could it be that we’ve not been righteous?
It is time to make a change.
There’s a false love that has crept into Western Christianity today that has made the Church limp. This false love has a way of subtly making us feel righteous, but it’s a synthetic righteousness. I’m speaking of this false concept of love as a sentiment of total acceptance, free of the ability to hate, which is one of the most popular rationales for which many believers are abandoning the truth and authority of the Scriptures in this hour.
I believe the Obama administration and their far leftist ideology were instrumental in pushing the envelope and creating such a militant aggression in our society today that is demanding people love and accept others, regardless of their actions. The focus of what many call love today is based on accommodating people’s ungodly and sinful lifestyles and idiosyncrasies, and frankly, even abominable behavior. This new sentiment is shaping public policy and being used as a standard of morality in evaluating people’s behavior. The riots and protests in our streets are evidence of this. Even many Christians are falling for it, and demonic doctrines and damnable heresies are spreading.
Undoubtedly our nation was already moving in this direction, but it was finally and totally turned upside down during the corrupt Obama administration, and I’m afraid this upside down effect, which calls good, evil and evil, good; light, darkness, and darkness, light; bitter, sweet, and sweet, bitter — has infiltrated the Church and profaned it. Professing Christians who voted for Obama, the great deceiver (his true colors are showing now and this is becoming much more obvious – see below), are among those who live in a false love and false righteousness and display so little godly discernment. This attitude is a fungus in the Church that calls for every pastor to train his people in true love and righteousness.
I knew an old time 85 yr. old Pentecostal preacher who made altar calls in his meetings for Christians who voted for Obama. What? Yes, no kidding! You can argue with his approach, but he was righteous for holding them accountable and making it an issue in the Church. Were people offended? Of course, some were, but some actually repented, and you can repent, too if you were duped into voting for him. Hey, when you’re 85 years old you can pretty much say anything you want. Ha!
Lack of accountability is a huge problem in our churches today, especially among preachers. It’s a problem because no one wants to confront difficult and sensitive issues for fear of being labeled a pious, holier-than-thou snob. We crave the approval of man and want people to like us (we’ve confused Jesus’ command to love with being liked). “Don’t judge them, just love them” seems to be the “Christian mantra” these days. The problem is, you can’t truly love anyone without exercising righteous judgement. Love as only a gesture of sentimentality and sympathy without righteous judgement is a false love — the very cancer that is killing the Church and making her lukewarm and good for nothing. This is not the way to become salt and light in our society.
The greatest tragedy has been that we’ve carried this attitude into our gospel message and preached for itching ears, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons.
It is obvious now that Obama’s true colors are showing more and more as word is he has established a shadow government, really a devil’s nest, if you will, two miles from the White House, to undermine the actions of Trump’s presidency (refer to my post-election Charisma article which now has proven to be a very accurate prophetic vision a minister shared with me: (Are We In More Danger With Obama Out of Office Than In). Nobody will say it because of so called respect for the office of the Presidency, but the rules changed under the Obama administration. Let’s call him what he is. He is a thug himself. I’m bracing myself now for the “you’re a ***##!!! racist” remarks, and the unsubscribing of some. Would you say the same thing about Jesus for calling king Herod a “fox” (Lk. 13:32)? Where is the respect for the office there? True prophets rebuke wicked kings. Does this offend your sensibilities, oh Christian?
Author Larry Alex Taunton shows us where real offense needs to manifest:
“I urge you to be offended instead by the way God’s name is blasphemed in our country every day; by the 54 million children murdered in the holocaust of abortion since 1973; by the sordid sexual agenda that is eroding the very fabric of Western civilization; by the fact that Christians are dying for their faith, largely at the hands of Muslims, at a rate of 100,000 per year; and, most of all, by the reality that these things are being ignored, trivialized, or celebrated. These are things that offend me deeply, and I hope they offend you, too. Righteous anger has a place within the Christian life. Tap into it. In the words of Ephesians 4:26, “Be angry and do not sin.”
Being offended and angered by this intolerable sort of wickedness is true righteousness. On the other hand, being offended by truth is fake righteousness and another subtle and more acceptable form of wickedness.
Here is a compelling scripture that exposes fake righteousness:
“Like a muddied fountain and a polluted spring is a righteous man who yields, falls down, and compromises his integrity before the wicked” (Pr. 25:26 – AMPC).
I will not compromise my integrity before the wicked. I will never respect any wicked president or king or authority. I will respect the office, but never the wickedness of the person.
I will never respect sin. I will never accommodate wickedness.
The Church has become a muddied fountain and a polluted spring because it has yielded to the pop culture of our day and this leftist worldly ideology that pressures us to approve and accept others, regardless of their actions. They want the Church to accommodate people’s ungodly and sinful lifestyles and idiosyncrasies, and even abominable behavior.
It’s time for all Christians to develop some real backbone and take a stand for truth and righteousness. It’s time to put away this synthetic righteousness that constantly bows down to the wicked. It’s time to put away this false concept of love and walk in the love that speaks the truth. It’s time to stop conforming to our culture and actually impact it.
Repentance may be a good place to start.
If every evangelical Christian in this nation, which represents a whopping 26% of it, would be a non-conformist and walk in true love and true righteousness, it would shake the entire nation.
