Coming Out Of The Church

Originally posted on SETTING CAPTIVES FREE:

Once you COME OUT of the church building, one of the most important things you can do for yourself is to acknowledge the truth of where you have been and what you have taken part in; and then begin to state where you stand NOW! Below is a post by Pam Sheppard that explains how you can restore your free will so that you can be on your path to true freedom.

The Importance of Affirmations

“The thing that all human beings have to fight with is our God given free will. In order for the enemy to control us, he needs our passivity to steal our free will from us. Stating an affirmation that both the enemy and your own soul can hear is very important because stating an affirmation helps us to restore our free will.
Here are two affirmations to stand on where your free will is…

SCANDAL and the Institutional Church

Tags

, , , , ,

Here is an interesting quote from a blog called Detox From Church For Real, as it pertains to those who have left the
institution called “church.”

“If you’re not careful, keep harping on what’s wrong with church can become YOUR religion. An obsession. An addiction as real as that to crack cocaine…Keeping your spirit’clean’ also means turning away from that which poisons you, that takes you back to that place of being wounded by churchianity. I don’t see recovering drug addicts going back to the crack houses…trying to ‘save’ those who are caught up in the drug scene. SO what’s with religious folks trying to ‘save’ the lost and misguided, the bamboozled, the deceived in church?vThat’s NOT your job anyways…THAT IS THE JOB OF THE HOLY GHOST.” (Wenona Russ)

In ministry while in a denomination for 25 years, I was once  one of the wounded, so I personally know the truth of this quote. When the Bishop manipulated the leadership council to remove my name from the membership rolls  back in 2004, even though I had been shown by God what would happen nine months before the deed was done, I was still both hurt, bitter and angry. The truth is that when you focus on individuals and not the religiously political system that my enemies represented, bitterness and even outrage will naturally surface. I took out my rage on them in a book, where I changed names but I identified the denomination. I re-wrote the book a few years later, with a new title “Come Out of Her God’s People,”  and  without identifying the specific church.  BT,.I no longer market the original. You see,   once a critic stated that I sounded “bitter,” I realized that my literary articulation was being negatively affected by the outrage that I thought I had successfully suppressed.

The truth is that I had allowed “looking back” at their scandals to tarnish my own soul.   I have purposed in my heart to  refuse  to allow any person, place, thing  or entity to shape, or even slightly influence the essence of who I am according to who God created me to be. .

Once the Lord revealed to me the deep truth as to why I was rejected by church leaders, I never again looked back at them or  their SCANDALS.

You see, there was and I expect continues to be much SCANDAL in this particular sect—so much so that I am reminded of the TV series that bears the same name.

SCANDAL

In this regard, as a former pastor among them,   I once knew of loads of COVERED UP denominational  scandals among the religious white- washed tombs of  the persevering hypocrites.  So watching the politicians cover-up of scandals on the TV series  reminded me of  the games religious folk play.

At first, like everyone else, you look at the individual characters to make an assessment as to who is to blame, who is at fault. With the TV series, you wonder if  it is the President or his monstrous Chief of Staff! Or is it his power-hungry First Lady, or perhaps the head of the secret agency called B613? In my “church situation,” , I first looked at the people involved in trying to bring me down in the church. There were three of them.

On the TV series, when you begin to watch each character  lie, plot, scheme, manipulate, and even murder, I noticed that  at the heart of their behavior is their yet naive attempt to be the good guys, wearing the white hat. The characters are able to live with their mess 20140303_185514because they can still rationalize that they did their best to protect the republic. So with all of their political tactics, you have to ask yourself “well! who is the republic?”

And this is the institutional church. . Both politics and religion use the same tactics. Religious folk” kill off”  other churchfolk because they believe they are protecting  their territory within the IC.  Therefore, it is understandable that both politics and religion  have their part to play as Mystery Babylon.

Consider the IC.

By any means necessary, whether a famous mega preacher or the choir director or trustee of a 50 member church, the goal is the same. To protect the IC, which like the republic is a non-human entity. A system. A religious system.

The reality is that the problems and SCANDALS of the IC have been built into Her system for the last 17 centuries. so there is no one in the IC today who is really the originator of any of her present circumstances.

Olivia Pope had an interesting revelation about the republic. As the re-election campaign manager for the sitting President, she came to realize that it really did not matter who wins. All three candidates committed murder. The democrat committed a premeditated murder of his wife’s lover, the independent killed her closet gay husband in a fit of rage and covered it up, and the incumbent President killed a dying woman who was about to release a damnable secret to the press!

In other words, ALL THREE CANDIDATES ARE MURDERERS!!!!!

Upon this realization, Olivia got yet another revelation. Working for the republic at any cost changes who you are because through passivity, you lose yourself. Engulfed in darkness, you can no longer stand in the sun.

Herein lies what happens in the IC. Each individual loses him or herself trying to sustain Her. When a member or a pastor  become a target of destruction in the denomination I was ordained in, the expression was “the Bishop or the  Council killed him or killed her. When a  church scandal has been covered up, the devil comes in and takes over.

That is why, rather than spend my energy bashing Her, I focus on restoring individuals who desire freedom from Her. Seeking freedom? Check out RESCUE at www.aboutrescue.com or call 518-477-5759

What are some other reasons why it is fruitless to continue to look back at HER to expose, criticize or blame?

Well, If she were alive, I know of someone who can answer the question by her own personal experience. God warned those He led out of two decadent cities not to look back at what He was destroying. For to look back is a sign that you want to GO  back.

Let Lot’s wife warn YOU  from her pillar of salt.

“How Does The Holy Spirit Work?” by Pam Sheppard

Tags

, , ,

“The only honest answer after 37 years being led by Him is to say “I do not know.”

All I can say is that he is just like how The Lord described Him. He is like the wind. You can’t really see the wind, but you see it’s effects. He is neither wild, boastful or drunk as He is displayed by charismatics. His main purpose is to exalt Christ and to conform us into the Lord’s image. He does that first by causing us to be born again. The Spirit uses a uniquely personal approach, first of all by reproving and convicting us—causing us to repent by making the cross real and personal in our lives, dropping faith into us to believe on the Lord’s resurrection. Every testimony of rebirth is different but all of the elements of His work are the same. If they are not ALL there, then the person needs to consider that he or she had a false conversion.

Once we are born again, He then teaches and guides us in ways that when we look up, we realize He was there by what he has left behind. For example, He speaks through me yet I am completely unaware of it. I noticed His work with two RESCUE members in phone sessions yesterday. With one member, I made a post, not even knowing how he would be affected. With another, I read some material a month ago that provided answers as to why she is not yet completely free in spite of all demons being cast out. How did I know what to say? How did I recall out of my memory information that I have never written about or discussed before? How was I able to ask this person questions that brought forth the information that coincided with something I read that applies to her situation?

My answer is “I don’t know. Must have been the Holy Ghost.”

Those who would suggest to you that He is an “IT” —an energy force that causes them to babble, have chills, get their teeth filled, sprinkle gold dust all over the place, fall out in a drunken, spiritual stupor, at their beck and call to do whatever they want, are in some deep trouble. Why? Because they are allowing the devil to use them to mock the Holy Ghost. Besides blasphemy, mocking Him is the worst thing in the world anybody could do.”

“The New Idolatry” by Pam Sheppard

, , ,

Here is an excerpt from Pam’s book “The New Idolatry”

“Without a worshiper’s understanding of the cross and the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, the true father God allows Satan to receive prayers made in Jesus’ name. Consequently, prayer and worship has been imperceptibly commandeered by the fake fallen angel, who calls himself, “Jesus.” A devilish religious invasion into the doctrines and practices of the organized church is the worst form of the new idolatry, with spiritually blind, yet faithful Christian churchgoers in communion with a table of devils. More on this crucial subject in Chapter 9.”

Q & A What is Preaching: by Pam Sheppard, RESCUE Fellowship

Tags

, , ,

All I got to say is WOW! So true! This is how the institutional church is treating their own. I find it interesting how Jesus specifically made reference to the “18 years.” Many are not helped because the ones ministering are very likely, in most cases, NOT TRULY CONVERTED. So, the ones who are truly tormented are not given the attention they need. I am sure glad to no longer be a part of such deception and that I am not accursed, since I no longer sit among them to receive everything that is NOT the GOSPEL. What a compelling video!

“Detoxing From The Supernatural” by Pam Sheppard

Tags

, ,

“My life had been supernatural since 1974.

It seems I got through life for decades without being bored due to my daily dreams and supernatural experiences. If I gave an account of a particular happening, people would have to ask me “was that a dream or did that REALLY happen? ”

Once I left the occult, the nature of the supernatural changed in the IC. I still had the dreams but while in the IC, I became hooked on what my destiny would be, well before I heard the messages of destiny preachers like TD Jakes.

So how did I detox?

It is quite simple. I just accepted the truth. Once I did, the dreams practically stopped all together.

A part of the process involves living in the here and now and not in some far off destiny. I reclaimed both my Will power and my commonsense. The word PALEEZE became a well used word in my vocabulary. I am a skeptic who walks by faith and trusts in God but I don’t expect to hear from God until He is ready to take me a step higher on my spiritual ladder. I don’t ask for anything supernatural. I leave it up to Him. What He wants me to know, He will share in due season.

it would seem that I would be bored without the supernatural to lean on. Not really. I enjoy the peace I have a lot more than the stress that comes from supernatural experiences. I actually lean more on God now than before. Sometimes you end up trusting more in a sign or a wonder than you trust in God himself. I don’t need to see Him, I don’t beg for a closer walk with Him.

I just BE!!!

After all, the biggest supernatural thing that ever happened to me, I did not seek? God just SHOWED UP!”

“Learning The Hard Way” by Pam Sheppard

Tags

,

“I had to learn the hard way all my life because I have been on the trail of the pioneer or the maverick. I had no examples and no teachers other than the Holy Ghost. So I had to learn predominately by making mistakes without any human help.

One of the mistakes I made when I first got born again has to do with the supernatural. I had been seeing into the future, healing and operating in the realm of the strangely miraculous for three years prior to being born again. So I assumed that since Jesus did the same, than what I was used to must be from Him also.

It wasn’t!

And it took 25 years for me to find that out!!!!

Consequently, I fully understand what it means to be a new WINESKIN. All other spiritual experiences must be left behind.

How do YOU learn? Can you learn from the mistakes of others or do you have to grab the bull by the horn and make your own mistakes?”

“Witchcraft Prayers and Intercession” by Pam Sheppard

Tags

,

All The Lord ever asked us to do for the unsaved is preach. He never asked us to convict, convert or even to pray for someone’s soul to be saved.

Some prayers can be dangerous. Prayer becomes dangerous when it descends into charismatic witchcraft when the one who prays seeks to control the lives of others. Soulish prayers of this kind energizes psychic power by projecting one’s thought on to the persons that they are praying for, by saying that such and such a person ‘shall’ do this or that. Such prayers make demands upon God to “make something happen. According to Jessie Penn Lewis,

“Every prayer should be directed Godward, and should never be a telling the Lord what to do for somebody else. We may pray that God will direct them what to do, but we ought not to say that they ‘must’ do what WE THINK is God’s will they should do, or even that they ‘shall not’ do what we know is wrong.”

So what is the purpose of intercessors prayer? I believe it is in Isaiah 58. To loose the bands of wickedness. To let the oppressed go free. To undo heavy burdens. To break every yoke.

It is amazing how so many unsaved people think that their prayers are saving folk! SMH

“On Becoming Deception-Proof” by Pam Sheppard

Tags

,

“Just because a person is born again does not make them “deception proof.”

The Lord would not have warned His disciples to “take heed and be not deceived” if there was no danger that they COULd be deceived. It does not matter how many things you are or were deceived about. For 25 years, I was deceived about a few things in comparison to what other churchgoers were deceived about. Yet the Holy Spirit did not release me from the deception until He was ready to. He simply stepped in when He chose the time to be right and started unravelling things. What I remain cautious about is this. Just because I am undeceived NOW, does not mean that it is impossible for me to be deceived again. For me to think otherwise would be both pride and arrogance and I do not want God to resist me.

So what is deception?

Deception has to do with thoughts in the mind. Simply put, we believe a lie or a half truth. The worst of it is the assumptions. if you start off with even one little wrong assumption, everything else falls like dominos.

As I am reading some of the works of the RESCUE look alike leader, I am watching how a person can start out with truth and how the enemy can use the truth they have received and lead them into a lie. What happens is that the enemy takes advantage of our misconception of truth. He uses the weaknesses of our personalities to lead us into believing what suits us best.

This realization is humbling me quite a bit. I believe that once we are given truth, we have to seek God in prayer to help us not to misunderstand truth for our conception of truth may cause us to err.

So my question is “how do we make ourselves fool-proofed to deception?”

I think we can all answer this from experience. just examined how we got deceived, what was it about us that caused us to be open to the deception, and how did you come out of it?”

“Ground Zero for the Religious” by Pam Sheppard

Tags

“I have never been religious but I am learning a lot about the journey through counseling and from hearing from people online, who have all had false conversions.

What I am discovering is that there is a bottom, a ground zero so to speak.

It seems a person is close to that bottom when he or she comes to realize the truth—-that deep down, he or she never really wanted God Himself. When a person sees the scripture that says “the carnal mind is at enmity with God” and it is realized that all he or she ever did was to try to become motivated toward God with a carnal mind, I think, ONLY then is a religious person getting close to the bottom, almost fully broken.

When all religious motives and efforts, including the pretenses acted out even here, in RESCUE, become as filthy rags, then salvation is close at hand.

what say YOU on this?”

Coming Out Of The Church

Once you COME OUT of the church building, one of the most important things you can do for yourself is to acknowledge the truth of where you have been and what you have taken part in; and then begin to state where you stand NOW! Below is a post by Pam Sheppard that explains how you can restore your free will so that you can be on your path to true freedom.

THE IMPORTANCE OF AFFIRMATIONS

“The thing that all human beings have to fight with is our God given free will. In order for the enemy to control us, he needs our passivity to steal our free will from us. Stating an affirmation that both the enemy and your own soul can hear is very important because stating an affirmation helps us to restore our free will.
Here are two affirmations to stand on where your free will is concerned. the second one deals with fear. Let us know how this works for you.

Affirmation #1: I have been given a “will”, and it is mine. I have been given a “mind” and that is mine. I confess that I have been religious. I confess that I desired the tricks and the lies that I have been taught, and have believed in. By my own will and soundness of mind, I no longer want to walk in the ways of the wicked. I no longer give myself over to belief in your religious works and wiles. I now know that religiosity has kept me bound and blind; but I also know that Life and Truth is in Jesus Christ of Nazareth and HIM alone.

Affirmation #2: With my own will and soundness of mind I now realize and know that ‘fear’ has kept me bound. The lies of you demons, devils and fallen angels have kept me blind to the Freedom of Truth in Jesus Christ of Nazareth. In Christ there is nothing to fear, and HE says that perfect Love casts out fear: In Christ is perfect Love. I know there is only One who should be feared with a reverential fear, that is HE who has the power over sin and death. You demons, devils and fallen angels are subject to HIS authority. I do not fear you or your lies anymore, because I know that Christ is above all, He is Truth. Truth that will set me free from sin. Upon His leading I will wait, and Trust.”

The Spiritual War Against You!

Tags

, ,

Many describe themselves as Christians today, yet are careless, lackadaisical, and carry on with a minimum of effort or reflection in their attitude toward God, as it concerns who they are and how they are to walk in Him. It seems that the Christian life has become more about what one “deserves” or is “entitled” to, than about what they can GIVE or how they can GROW and LEAD in TRUTH.

Some people are driven by what they can get out of something or someone. These are the PREDATORS and many sincere church-goers become their PREY. These sincere people succumb to their predator and have become passive and have not exercised their will freely. Consequently, they have unknowingly been spiritually and emotionally manipulated by those in power.

People, there is a serious SPIRITUAL WAR going on out there, and it is not just in the world; it is within the walls of the church building. It is disgusting to GOD and no man-made church organization is immune to this WICKEDNESS.

You may not understand it all, but if you sense in the slightest that something is “WRONG”, and if you believe you are one of HIS, then you need to HEED that warning.

It is imperative that you understand what is going on in the end-time spiritual war that is against you, so I encourage you to get a copy of “The Church of the End-time Zombies”

Angels on Assignment: Paul’s Thorn

Tags

, , ,

“Paul’s thorn was a fallen angel and not a sickness or infirmity as some in the IC teaches. That is an expression similar to a pain in the ass.

The “thorn” was a fallen angel that caused Paul to be shipwrecked, bitten by a snake, imprisoned, stoned and left for dead, in peril from folk, etc. All in an effort to hinder Paul’s ministry. yet, because of God”s grace, Paul’s ministry has continued for 21 centuries because God”s grace was sufficient. The words reflects that God allowed the demon to continue because He did not want Paul to get puffed up concerning the supernatural power he walked in.

I have a fallen angel assigned to me. His image came out on a photo taken of me on 10/25/81. It was the day I preached my trial sermon and entered ministry.

Does every Christian have a fallen angel assigned to him or her? I don’t know. I suspect that assignments are based upon how dangerous one is to the enemy”s kingdom.

When you consider what I am really called to do, you will understand why Satan assigned one to me.

any questions?”

Why come out of the IC? Well, it’s A HAUNTED HOUSE!!!

“We all have been lulled into a semi or fully delusional state where we are drugged into believing something we know deep down inside ‘just isn’t right.’ We just went to church and went along with the programs to get along. We didn’t want to rock the boat, so to speak, out of fear that we would be labeled ‘rebellious,’ ‘unfaithful,’ ‘unteachable,’ or a host of other names leadership likes to place on thinking people who were blessed with common sense AND wisdom to know game when they see it.

When I was a faithful pastor in the IC, I had several memorable dreams that showed me the spiritual condition of the entire IC but I misinterpreted them. I thought the dreams were pertaining to the actual church I saw,when a particular church was only intended to be representative.

The pulpit and altar area was defiled with menstrual blood, feces and urine. I would dream about toilets overflowing in the sanctuary. I did not understand those dreams until after I left the IC.

I now know that the defilement represented the plagues.For in the natural, plagues have broken out because of infectious, unclean conditions like rats and such. The unclean natural condition of a house will cause it to be condemned, boarded up.A haunted house is filled with the demons that once inhabited the dead who lived in that house.

I call the IC a haunted house because it is filled with evil spirits who have taken over, because of the plagues. Jesus called the religious folk of his day, white washed tombs on the outside, contaminated with dead men’s bones on the inside. This is the IC today. It is a huge whitewashed tomb. A haunted house.

Don’t let the white washed physicality, Her stained glass beauty fool you. The spirit realm is invisible to our eyes but it still exists. In the spirit realm, every pulpit is covered in unclean blood,urine and feces.”

The Use Of The Word “Surrender” In A Church Setting

Surrender is a word that is easily misconstrued, since it is often loosely referred to in the institutional church (IC).
Being a puppet would be like laying down and not taking an active part in exercising your free will; so in that case, it would NOT be a good idea to surrender.

But SURRENDER, to me, if I understand it correctly, is more about THE ATTITUDE OF OUR HEARTS BEFORE GOD; the realization that as non-Born Again believers yet to come to Salvation and Born Again believers, THAT GOD has OUR best interests at heart and that HE has OUR LIVES in His hands, just as He is in full control of this world, and that for US to think that WE have something to do with what happens on a large scale is FOOLISH!

The idea is to exercise our free will with TRUTH (as we are becoming undeceived) on our way to Salvation and to exercise our wills after becoming Born Again and the Lord continues to undeceive and cause us to GROW in HIM. The plus, after receiving (becoming Born Again) the POWER of His Holy Spirit abiding in you, is that your soul (mind, will and emotions) become more and more CONFORMED to HIM.

SO TO ME, SURRENDER TO GOD… IS ABOUT SUBMITTING TO TRUTH IN GOD! … and that includes ACKNOWLEDGING TRUTH ABOUT YOURSELF, AS HE CONFORMS YOU TO HIS IMAGE!

How do you define Surrender?

And do you think the IC has added to the confusion of Surrender, and if so, how?

Understanding “Why the ASC?”

By Pam Sheppard
“Clearly, the real danger behind an altered state of consciousness or the trance is that it leads to passivity in the form of a weakened will. A lack of ego strength causes its victims to become open or vulnerable to manipulation, domination and control. The bible says in the Book of Proverbs that he that has rule over his spirit is better than he who can take a city. (Proverbs 16:32) In that same book, there is a verse that warns that a wounded spirit, who can bear it.(18:14) Passivity is a strong sign of a wounded spirit.

Satan has always wanted to be worshiped and therefore he looks for every opportunity among Christians to steal some worship for himself. He obtains worship among Eastern religions as they are the originators of the ASC. In order to obtain worship from Christians, he had to deceive. It has been a long process covering centuries. He started out altering doctrines, particularly the doctrine of salvation. Out of mixed and false doctrines came new beliefs and practices. Out of these practices, an ASC was birthed among Westerners.

As the worshipper enters the spectrum and attains the ASC, a fallen angel attempts to “walk into a worshipper.” Through deceptive devices, an effective trick can cause a worshipper to be at various levels of risk of demonism.

I first entered an altered state through attending college. The professor called it “relaxation therapy, a euphemism for hypnosis. However the most effective way the enemy dealt with me was to pretend to be God while I was in the ASC of dreaming. Since I left the IC ten years ago, the charismatics have invented more religious practices that open folk to an ASC.

How about you?”

The Truth About “Following After Truth”

“Following after truth” is something that most, in the institutional church, speak about with an air of confidence and as a matter of fact. Of course, why wouldn’t one want Truth instead of a Lie, you ask?

Well, it is not so much that I am questioning whether someone is sincere about Truth, as much as I am wondering about their interpretation of what it means to follow after it. Following after truth, to me, is to “find the truth.”

To “find the truth” is:

1. to ADMIT that LIES and DECEPTION are all around us and that in saying we “follow after TRUTH” is to say that we desire to be UNDECEIVED

2. to be WILLING to examine our closely held beliefs as it regards our religious behaviors and practices.

3. to be WILLING to let go of all of our previously conceived ideas of God and to be stripped of all that is not of Him

4. to ultimately have a WILLINGNESS to EXAMINE if we be in the FAITH and if “our Conversion” is in fact true or false.

5. to be LIBERATED by it

The DECEPTION in the world is extremely THICK and it would behoove us, as God’s people, to obey and heed HIS warning.

ARE YOU WILLING?

If so, how far will you go to “FIND THE TRUTH?”

“Passivity of Conscience” by Pam Sheppard

Conscience along with intuition are the senses of the human spirit. When the conscience is shut down, it is because it has become passive. Here is what Jessie Penn-Lewis in “War on the Saints” has written about this subject:
When believers sink into passivity of conscience, there is a manifestation of moral degradation in some, and in others stagnation, or retrogression in life or service. Instead of using their mind, or conscience in deciding what is good and evil, and right and wrong, they walk, as they believe, according to the “voice of God,” which they make the deciding factor in all their decisions. When this takes place, they will not listen to their reason, or conscience, or the words of others, and having come to decision through the supposed direction of God, their minds become as a closed and sealed book on the matter in question.
Ceasing to use their true reasoning powers, they become open to all kinds of suggestions from evil spirits, and false “reasonings”; for example, in regard to the coming of Christ, some have falsely reasoned that because Christ is coming soon, they do not need to carry on their usual work, overlooking the words of the Lord on this very matter: “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath set over his household, to give them their food in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord, when he cometh, shall find so doing.”
Because of what he will gain through it, therefore, the devil will do anything to engender passivity in any form whatsoever, in spirit, or mind or body.
Here is a recent example. A woman just wrote me and quoted the apostles asking some new converts this question: Have you received the Holy Ghost since you believed?” She passively accepted what she was taught, ie that tongues is the evidence that a person is saved. How does asking somebody a question CONFIRM or act as evidence of ANYTHING???? DA???? Look at that question closely. If they believed, were they not already saved? When I was saved, I too knew nothing about the Holy Ghost. Passivity of conscience has caused many to believe false doctrine of all kinds.

Religious Arrogance, The Big Lie!

Religious Arrogance is a term that came up in my head this morning. I thought to myself , it is something , that we who have been affected by it (“the churched”), does a lot to US when we take part in it.

– it keeps us UNDER PRESSURE
– it keeps us stuck in One place emotionally and spiritually-
– it can taint or alter your personality and can suffocate it
– it takes away identity
– you may become robotic in your thinking and your behaviors
– while you are under the LIES of it, it causes you to lie to yourself and compromise much without YOU realizing it
-you are consumed with “Doing Good” instead of being truly productive
-you eventually get to a point where you think you “know better” than most
-and for some, it causes them to think they are going CRAZY

Religious Arrogance , to me, is this “RIGHT” that you have taken upon yourself to wield power and knowledge to yourself and others and HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE LIVING GOD!

You end up suffering and paying an unnecessary price…. the loss of YOU
AND a proper understanding of the ONE TRUE GOD!

CARE to share your thoughts on this one or add to the list..?

Is Your Soul Stuck On Will Worship?

Tags

I believe that the institutional church walks a dangerous line in teaching and prescribing a do-it-yourself religion. We are warned in God’s word about will worship; our methods of self-made madness; one that is full of fantasy and/or a sense of euphoric display oftentimes with the outcome being one of a lifeless individual in an apathetic and passive state of mind. There is definitely something wrong with this picture, wouldn’t you agree?

Are we not insulting the one true God by compromising His Truth, by giving what He didn’t ask for; interpreting with speculation of His Doings and making outlandish demonstrations, while calling it His Power? How can we call this True faith if the fruit of apathy and passiveness is the result of these practices and behaviors? Have you ever observed the effects of this type of mania within the walls of the church building? Have you been afraid to question with even the slightest concern that something seems off? Can you skirt the issue any longer with God? Are you making excuses for everything while pretending it’s “just the way it is” while you are serving HIM? Are you going along to get along and just following the crowd? He doesn’t care about anything but the Simple Faith shown through our Obedience. The rest of it is nothing but a bunch of hoopla. Are you silently suffering in your soul and stuck on the bad fruit that comes with taking part in will worship?
