Christians are more concerned with the affairs of the world than with GOD's Truth...

HNewsWire-Worldly Christians are more concerned with the affairs of the world than with spiritual things. The Apostle Paul has a lot to say about worldliness in 1 Corinthians. For one thing, Paul makes clear that worldliness is the polar opposite of godliness; therefore, to be worldly is a sin against God.

I’ve read sobering stories of bad pastors/spiritual abusers (Jimmy Bakker), deceitful startup founders (Elizabeth Holmes), and obsessive athletes (Tiger Woods). I’ve also witnessed the profoundly destructive power of bad pastors and spiritual abuse first hand.
List of religious leaders convicted of crimes

What struck me as I read these books was that in both the “secular” world and the church, destructive leadership tends to look the same. In other words, the same things that caused Jimmy Bakker to implode also led to the downfall of Elizabeth Holmes and her company “Theranos” (once valued at $1 billion).

Worldliness, and the need for Christians to be set apart.

What is worldliness? It’s thinking, acting, and “attituding” the way lost people think, act, and attitude. It’s taking everything in through a fleshly filter instead of a biblical one and putting yourself out there through a fleshly filter instead of a biblical one. It’s dealing with the world around you in any way Jesus wouldn’t.

God has called His people to be set apart from the world from day one. (OK, day six, if you want to get all technical about it.) You can’t be more set apart than living at an address God personally designed for you and plopped you down in the middle of.

The whole purpose of the Promised Land, the Law, driving out the pagan nations and destroying them, depending on God to miraculously win wars and conquer the enemy, was for God to set apart a people for Himself. To raise up a nation that the rest of the world could look at and say, “Hey, those Israelite folks are different, and their God is different, too. What’s their one God got that our pantheon doesn’t?”.

Jesus reminded God’s people what it looked like to be different and set apart from the world. So did His disciples. And the New Testament is chock full of passages in which the apostles exhort Christians and the church to be holy and distinct from the world in heart, mind, and behavior.

More and more, it’s critically important to be able to identify dangerous, destructive pastors BEFORE everything falls apart. Few things cause Christians to become disillusioned more than being ripped to pieces by a really bad pastor. Few things do more to sully the name of Jesus more than abusive spiritual leaders.

Do Not Be Surprised...
For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ. (Galatians 1:10)

Doctrine matters. And all doctrine, good or bad, has consequences both now and for eternity. Bad doctrine yields bad fruit. No matter how one "feels" when he is absorbing that doctrine, if it is erroneous and false, ultimately it will be deadly. Eternally deadly.

Doctrine matters. Regardless of the common seeker-driven battle cry that "doctrine divides" or "Jesus didn't die for correct theology," the reality is that doctrine matters. In spite of the postmodern attempt to eschew the importance of doctrine and of truth, the genuine Christian knows that, without a right knowledge of the truth, a person cannot be saved. Doctrine matters.

Doctrine matters because, encompassed in that word, "doctrine," we see the teaching and the knowledge of such things as the nature and character of God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. We see the truths of justification, regeneration, repentance and sanctification. Where would we be, for example, without the amazing doctrine of penal substitutionary atonement? In a 2003 article, Dr. Al Mohler defined doctrine thusly:

Doctrine is, quite literally, the teaching of the church--what the church understands to be the substance of its faith. It is no substitute for personal experience. Evangelical Christians have given clear witness to the necessity of personal faith in Jesus Christ, but that personal faith is based in some specific understanding of who Jesus Christ is and what He accomplished on the cross. After all, we do not call persons to profess faith in faith, but faith in Christ. (Source)

"In the end, politicians have a choice; the choice to do the right thing and save there soul, or to do the wrong thing and save there career". We all know the choice most politicians make... StevieRay Hansen

You are shepherds of the flock. Shepherds protect, speak out, and defend.
If we are to accomplish anything for God, it will take the courage to stand, and yes, often stand, act, and even speak up.
Those in Godly leadership positions are often tempted when the work is nearing completion. It is then that they are most tempted with pride, most vulnerable to invitations from the enemy. Lies are just another tactic of the enemy to discourage and defeat the leader….

“Have I therefore become your enemy by telling you the truth?”
If the greatest warrior of all times, King David was sent back to earth by God Almighty, the Pharisees and Sadducees the hypocrites would be in a frenzy, you see- great warriors like King David, Paul of biblical proportions would expose their ungodly doctoring. Those men would expose the treacherous path most of the world is on(inclusiveness) in other words sin must be accepted Or you'll go to jail, those pastors in Canada(coming to America soon) are experiencing that following Christ can be by the world standards "dangerous". Your job as warriors, shepherds of the flock is to speak out, expose ungodly behavior, oppose Injustice for the poor, the weak, Orphans and widows, the battle cry is “justice justice”. But for those Saints, salt of the earth Christians we know our life on earth is temporary, heaven is our eternal home, what's in your heart, applause from the world which is temporary, Christ outstretched arms which is eternal?

God knows that evil is not combated with love and understanding.
Why we must admonish the wicked ....

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

THE TRUTH SOUNDS LIKE HATE TO THOSE WHO HATE THE TRUTH.

“If you are unhinged over politics, you need to step away. Turn off the TV. Get off social media and get help. Focus on living life and life is not politics. If nothing else, get a dog and take a break.”

We hold the pain of the past over our loved ones’ heads like a club, or we remind them every once in a while, when we want to get the upper hand, of the burden we still carry because of something they did years ago.
