What is absolutely astounding is the denial of sin in one’s life. We have so much left behind the reality of Jesus in the church –it makes me sick to listen to the news. Here is my question…Will the real church please stand up?
Don’t stand behind your pastor–for in heaven you will stand alone before Jesus. How much does your soul mean to you–will you sell your soul to be cleared by the media? Will you sell your soul to have the praise of man? Will you sell your soul to have fame and fortune?
Personally, I am so glad that this crud about Ted Haggard is being exposed. The church is in a lie and needs a good spanking. However, here is the clutcher–watch how it all unfolds–watch who stands for truth and who stands behind a man that needs to repent of his sin. Jones needs Jesus and so does Ted. But why should Jones accept Jesus Christ as his personal savior if he has an infidel for an example/witness? Do you see where I am going with this? No person is ever going to have faith in Jesus when the church is acting like a prostitute.
14,000 people in this church–who follow a man that preaches Jesus yet has no desire to repent of his sinful behavior. Something is wrong here… what happened to the firey preachers? The ones who knew the reality of hell–and the fear of God– has the word “holiness” been deleted from the vocabulary of preachers these days?
Any man who has been placed in charge of souls–to shepherd them, lead them to the Truth—do you know what you are? You are a guardian of the Truth of Jesus. You are a mouth piece for God. You have been given the honor by God to feed the souls of mankind! Does that mean anything to you? Does that cause your spirit to quake inside? Well it should…and if it doesn’t, either get right with Jesus or resign! Because as the days darken–it will only get worse–anything and everything that can be exposed, will be exposed. And you will have one chose that will ring forever in eternity–repent now for the fear of God or lie and see the web entagle your until the life of Jesus is choked out of you–unbelief is a powerful force that seeks to choke us all and capture us forever.
Come clean Ted Haggard and see the mercies and grace of God!
1 John 1:8-10
8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.
My brethren, let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment.
2 Timothy 4:1-5
I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom:2 Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers;4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.5 But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
1 Peter 4:8
8 And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”
…but I think somehow we have tainted what “love” truly is–we have replaced “agape” and “phileo” with “eros” in the church and in our futile minds…
