I read the news today, oh boy, about Jorge Mario Bergoglio, aka Pope Francis, and his push for a more inclusive church. Just as the Archbishop of Canterbury in the Anglican Church, and every denomination now meeting in fractious disunity and disarray, as the majority of churches and pastors now are all calling for and pushing upon the people who come to them.
In fewer and fewer numbers.
Here’s a thought. One as a Christian, thinking as a true disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ, renewed of mind and spirit desiring to love the Lord and to serve the Lord…
I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.
Such are those mentioned above. And they are only a fraction of those certain people that have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for a certain condemnation, ungodly people, perverted people, wicked people who pervert the grace and Word of God into sensuality and worldly loves, beliefs, and practices thus denying our Master and Saviour, the Lord, Jesus Christ — while they serve their master, Satan, the devil, the father of lies who appears as an angel of light.
How about exhibiting true inclusivity and placing God, the Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, and the Word of God — all of it, the whole thing, every word while not omitting anything from the Bible nor adding anything to the Bible?
Why not push for that rather than pushing as the ministers of Satan do for worldly inclusivity, Satan’s ministers such as Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Justin Welby the Archbishop of Canterbury, and every stated Christian denomination now does in the throes of their inner turmoil as they have all allowed false teachers to creep in, unawares for a season, to then open their venomous jaws to spew their deadly poison biting into the leadership of almost every known Christian entity. As the Evil One grows impatient knowing his days are numbered and the end swiftly approaches.
While all his dedicated ministers, appearing as angels of light do his bidding to disrupt, tear apart, and lead astray as many as possible before the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God,e which he obtained with his own blood. I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among your own selves will arise men speaking twisted things, to draw away the disciples after them.
When the inclusivity of God’s inerrant infallible living Word was replaced, neglected, unknown, and mistreated by the overwhelming majority within professed Christian leadership, when the wolves entered in massive numbers when evil men and women crept in unawares planted by evil just awaiting their appointed time.
True disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, true children of God renewed of mind and spirit, transformed Supernaturally by the power of the Spirit of God to be changed within their hearts and minds, thus their lives are changed and this inward change is visible and known to those around them. Or, it certainly ought to be known.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio, aka Pope Francis, Justin Welby the Archbishop of Canterbury of the Anglican Church, and every other false teacher within the leadership of now every denomination, so many pastors spewing the lies of the world and the master they serve — they all reveal their love of the world more than their love of God, their love of the Lord Jesus Christ, their love of the Holy Spirit, and their love and understanding of the Holy Bible, the inerrant infallible living Word of God.
Soothing the itching ears of those refusing to trust and obey the Lord.
Those loving the world more than they love the Lord.
For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions,
2 Timothy 4:3
And if even moderately Bible literate and Biblically fluent you ought to know what happens to every person no matter their station in this life, how famous they may be, how holy they profess to be — that loves the world more than they love God and by their deeds, by the fruit they bear they show they love the world more than they love the Lord and His Word.
Therefore, dear friends, since you have been forewarned, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of the lawless and fall from your secure position.
2 Peter 3:17
A Tree and Its Fruit
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.”
I Never Knew You
“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. 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?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’”
False Prophets and Teachers
But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.
For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment; if he did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a herald of righteousness, with seven others, when he brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; if by turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes he condemned them to extinction, making them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly; and if he rescued righteous Lot, greatly distressed by the sensual conduct of the wicked (for as that righteous man lived among them day after day, he was tormenting his righteous soul over their lawless deeds that he saw and heard); then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment, and especially those who indulge in the lust of defiling passion and despise authority.
Bold and willful, they do not tremble as they blaspheme the glorious ones, whereas angels, though greater in might and power, do not pronounce a blasphemous judgment against them before the Lord. But these, like irrational animals, creatures of instinct, born to be caught and destroyed, blaspheming about matters of which they are ignorant, will also be destroyed in their destruction, suffering wrong as the wage for their wrongdoing. They count it pleasure to revel in the daytime. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their deceptions, while they feast with you. They have eyes full of adultery, insatiable for sin. They entice unsteady souls. They have hearts trained in greed. Accursed children! Forsaking the right way, they have gone astray. They have followed the way of Balaam, the son of Beor, who loved gain from wrongdoing, but was rebuked for his own transgression; a speechless donkey spoke with human voice and restrained the prophet’s madness.
These are waterless springs and mists driven by a storm. For them the gloom of utter darkness has been reserved. For, speaking loud boasts of folly, they entice by sensual passions of the flesh those who are barely escaping from those who live in error. They promise them freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption. For whatever overcomes a person, to that he is enslaved. For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first. For it would have been better for them never to have known the way of righteousness than after knowing it to turn back from the holy commandment delivered to them. What the true proverb says has happened to them: “The dog returns to its own vomit, and the sow, after washing herself, returns to wallow in the mire.”
2 Peter 2
I read the news today, oh boy, and it’s just as I’ve been reading it now for years…
So many professing to be light, the way, and Christians who are in truth nothing but darkness and wickedness serving not God but the Evil One Leading millions away and astray from the Word of God since it is the world, the love of the world, the lies of the world they preach and not the whole Word of God!
Do not remain hidden. Silent. Misunderstanding Matthew 7:1. As the apostle Paul writes instructions to true believers in 1 Corinthians 2 verse 15 — the spiritual person JUDGES ALL THINGS.
Not abiding sin, corruption, unrighteousness, and the lies of this world.
Exposing them. Not hiding them, remaining silent about them, or becoming enjoined to them with them.
We are instructed in the Word of God, from Genesis through Revelation to rightly divide the Word, to use the minds God blessed us with, and to discern well and wisely. And not to be lead astray by the teachings of the world, which are false, but to remain holy, steadfast, secure in the Word so as to not be swayed and fall away.
True inclusiveness leads to God, to Christ, to the Holy Spirit, and the whole of the Word of God — not to what the world means, how the world defines, teaches and indoctrinates the meaning of that word as they obey their master, Satan, continuing in their darkness.
Do not become weak and deceived as so many have been and continue to become.
Each person can of their free will adopt the inclusiveness of the world, and thus that of Satan who has dominion over this world for a season, or the inclusiveness of the Lord.
Each has distinctly vastly diverse eternities in store for each individual based upon the path they chose to walk, what they chose to believe, and who or Who they chose to serve. And we all serve somebody. And it’s only one of two possibilities. We each either serve Satan and this world or God, the Triune God, and the ways of eternal heaven where the throne of God resides.
