More and more today, I am convinced many people who claim to be “Christian” do not know Him” That is the Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible.
I am being told by folks things like ‘if Jesus were here he certainly would not support…’ Seriously, do these people really think they know the mind of the Lord? I have been accused of hating certain groups, when all I have done is expressly point out the biblical position (God’s Word) and also insure to say we (believers) should never do so (point out error/sin) in an ugly manner.
Their main argument against my posts (and verbal discussions) seems to be the age old “its not fair argument”, or the more modern miss informed “Jesus was all about Love”. Both thoughts are un-biblical, that is they do not stand the test of the infallible Word of God. Of course that too, is another point of contention among many, they do not believe that God’s Word is infallible that is without error, after all man wrote it? Yet the bible clearly states it’s inerrancy, and I am not convinced one can be a true believer without this fundamental belief, after all, denial calls God a liar, are you willing to go there?
For these who claim to be followers of Christ (believers) but as I said the other day they have a Burger King theology they want God in their terms Jesus had and answer:
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’ Matthew 7:21-23 (ESV)
Jesus made it simple it was his way or the highway, John 14:6, there is no compromise, no debating with the Lord of all. He is boss not you and I period end of discussion. The use of the I am statement in the Greek leaves no doubt of this and only those who deny God’s Word challenge Christ.
I have said it a thousand times and I will say it until the day I die, it is never about you and I, it never was and never is. It was, is and always will be about God, so stop trying to be a god, and surrender all to Him that is greater than any who have or ever will live, the living Word of God.
Here is a sermon from John MacArthur on these verses I think you will find helpful:
