The Gospel of God in Jesus tells us plainly, “Repent or die.” We stand condemned already, that is to say before we believe the condemnation of God is upon us. John points this out clearly in chapter three of his Gospel. But the “repent” part has been shaken off the tree of the Church today by men who have said that God loves us all. They have used a truth to dispel the urgency of repentance. The reasons why they have done this are many and quite obvious. But they have done so in error. They think they clean the conscience of men by removing the stumbling block of sin from men. “Let’s get them past the condemning God stuff”, they say.
I am filled with rage that such things have been done. And the damage it has wrought is apparent in the lack of holiness among God’s people. I too fell for this lie. And even now I struggle, from time to time, to maintain a strong standing before the Lord for the lies hidden within my heart because of this foolish gospel. All day long men speak lies in the name of the Lord. And as long as we listen to them we too become corrupt with their sweet sins of corruption.
I fear the rot of lies has come to the point where the foot needs to be cut off lest it infect the entire body. The stench of sin wreeks from the injured foot. And the signs of sickness are unavoidable to the eye. The “Church” is hobbled by a hideous sickness. What is called the Church today is often simply a polished up secular teaching of psychology. And the “good” they perceive done by this set of lies has murdered thousands. They have turned the holy gathering of saints into a happy little club of man. And I, for one, will have nothing to do with them!
