Some would disagree with the saying in my title.
I have warned that many
leaders of Christian churches, are NOT real Christians, themselves. Even in so-called Bible believing churches.
I have come to be more and more convinced of this.
But, strangely, I have, also, become,
more convinced this is God's will.
Running a church, even a small one, requires a lot of intelligent,
determined, competent work.
And it is true, according to God's will, that true Christians
BE so heavenly minded, that they are poorly suited for a lot of hands on running of churches.
Romans 8 says true Christians are "spiritually minded," in contrast to non-believers who
are "carnally minded," and who mind the things of the flesh.
Romans 8:There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh,
but after the Spirit.
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through
the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us,
who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit
the things of the Spirit.
to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to
the law of God, neither indeed can be.
So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now
if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
These false Christian church leaders are usually seminary trained and ordained ministers.
So, God has exercised sufficient control over these to keep churches, more or less, in line.
times have changed, and in the direction of heretical doctrines, increasingly embraced by these ministers.
In something like the last 20 years, perhaps 90% of these ministers have moved to "God the neuter," whereas,
Jesus Christ, makes clear that the true God is a straight male.
God is a spirit with a spirit
body, and his is a male body.
Jesus Christ is the exact image of God, and is
in fact God in his own right.
He is a male, and takes a Bride, called the Church - all true believers
God's straight male being defines manhood, womanhood,
marriage, and absolutely refutes homosexuality.
"God the Neuter" IS NOT GOD
- IT IS THE REJECTION OF THE TRUE GOD!
IT IS NOT CHRISTIANITY!
So, these are extremely weighty matters, and of critical importance in these increasingly wayward times.
So, what are true believers to do?
In the New Testament book of Titus, chapter 2 we true believers are exhorted to maintain excellent
Christian behavior, and be actively looking for the "BLESSED HOPE." This cannot be anything other than
But speak thou the things
which become sound doctrine:
the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.
3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh
holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their
husbands, to love their children,
To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
6 Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.
7 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works:
in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,
8 Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having
no evil thing to say of you.
Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again;
10 Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that
they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.
11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly
lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great
God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a
peculiar people, zealous of good works.
15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
Anyone who is not sure if he or she is a true believer in the Lord Jesus Christ should read my pages,
They Came to Jesus, and, or, Jesus Gets a Visitor in the Night.
We should warn folks that "God the neuter," is a fictional character, and has NO part
2 Corinthians chapter 5 shows that salvation requires reconciliation to the true
God, not to a fictional character.
2 Corinthians 5:
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things
are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself,
not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us:
we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
