The Sin 0f Facebook -- revisited!

 The Sin of Facebook!

The above link is to a post I did a while back.  I wanted to update it somewhat now.  The more I see people on Facebook, the more I am appalled at so called Christians.  In the past week I have seen so called Christians wearing next to nothing in string bikini's, using language such as the "n" word and even worse than that, they have used the GD word (the only difference is they took out the "D" from God and replaced it with a "T").

So many people are deceived into thinking they are saved.  They post on facebook for the whole world to see that they truly do not believe or even fear the Lord our God. 

How about you?  Would you be ashamed if your pastor saw some of the things you post on facebook?  Would you be ashamed if you knew that Jesus does see everything you post?  Because He does see it all.  He knows your heart and the intent of your heart.  If it does not glorify God then you need to check yourself at the door.  Are you truly saved?  or do you just want the world to "think" you are saved to satisfy your own hunger to be like them in word and deed?

We are living in the End Times right now and so many self professing Christians feel like it is okay to be just like the world.  They truly do not believe in God.  They profess that they do but their actions prove otherwise!

Rock Church -- home of who knows what!

The above picture is posted on the facebook site of "pastor" Chuck Tate.  I use the term "pastor" loosely as you will see soon enough.  The supposed pastor is the one on the right in the picture.  This is all a part of the entertainment value that he places in the pulpit of his church.  I do want to emphasize that it is "his" church and not God's church.  God did not need entertainment in order for people to listen to him.    This church is a rock and roll church filled with tattoo wearing people who do not know God's Word.  They have been misled by a pastor, a prophet, a lost soul who distorts God's Word to mean what he wants it to mean.

Facebook tells us a lot about a person and what he believes.  Check out some of this pastor's likes on his page.

He follows a man who was a vocalist for Full Devil Jacket who later started his own rock band (of which there is no mention of following Jesus Christ).
Another one is a group called Beer Goggle Prophet (you guessed it, they promote beer drinking)
How about promoting Liberty n Justice and their Cigar Chronicles?  (this one is filled with smoking, drinking and foul mouth language)
Mark Driscoll -- the foul mouth pastor!
The Purpose Driven Life -- by none other than the false teacher Rick Warren!

How about some of these movies and characters that this pastor emboldens?
School of Rock with Jack Black who has been on screen blaspheming Jesus by pretending to be Jesus as a gay man.
Ellen DeGeneres -- the lesbian talk show hostess
The Office -- with its anti God talk, blaspheming God, taking the Lord's name in vain, etc
And finally, how about his support of stand up comedy featuring George Carlin?  A man who blasphemed God from day one of his comedy routine up till the day he died.  The man who had such filthy language and had no problem whether little children heard it or not.  He mocked God every chance he had.

All of the above is given full support of a man who calls himself a pastor.  It is disgusting to see his support of these things.  Now, add to all of this the other entertainment he has on stage of his church.
Singing songs like "I've Got Friends In Low Places" and "I Can't Drive 55" and how about "Born To Be Wild" as an example.  Or how about having motorcycles riding IN THE CHURCH?

This man does not seem to know what God's Word says about church.
Let all things be done decently and in order.  1 Corinthians 14:40

Here is another person he supports.  Pastor Bob Daily on youtube.  This man's sermons are so far removed from being biblical.  His body is covered with tattoo's and he tells people that he uses his tattoos to witness to people.  He contorts his body in different positions to tell people his story.  What ever happened to just telling people what God's Word says?  No, what has happened is this.  People are looking for pastors to preach a word to them that will tickle their ears.  They do not want to know what God's Word says, they only want to know that God loves them.  No mention of God's Wrath or His Judgment.  Only Grace without Wrath.  God is 100% Love and He is 100% Wrath.

What ever happened to churches that used to preach only God's Word without fail?
Today's church is into entertainment. Why? Because they do not believe God's Word is able to bring lost people to Christ.  What is happening is they are creating false prophets and false converts.  As long as people continue to follow this kind of false teaching, they will end up in hell since they do not repent of their sins.  Without repentance, there is no salvation!

The pastor of Rock Church needs to check himself as to whether he is, in fact, saved.  Because he is misleading his flock in the wrong direction.  He has actually given a sermon where he mocks christians who say you should not mark your body.  It is disgusting to hear him preach his message. I say it is "his" message because it is not of God to mock christians.

Just a few more to show his lack of discernment.
Joel Osteen -- a false teacher who distorts God's Word by changing it to fit his sermons (messages).
Rick Warren -- the one who believes that christians and muslims need to get along with each other.

Our world is falling apart right before our eyes.  We have a muslim president in office and supposed christians have no clue as to the danger he presents to us.

You have two choices.  Either go to a bible believing church that faithfully preaches God's Word from the KJV Bible...
go to a church (a better word would be to go to a building pretending to be a church) that has a pastor who endorses VULGAR LANGUAGE, SMOKING, DRINKING, ADULTERY, BLASPHEMY, DISHONORING GOD IN ALL THINGS, PROMOTING FALSE PROPHETS AND THEIR TEACHINGS.

After listening to another one of his sermons this pastor says that people like to hear things that "sound" true but in fact are not true.  He says that he does not do that.  He only preaches the truth according to him.  Then as you continue to listen to his sermon he says that God does not hate, He only loves.  He says don't be deceived by lies that sound like the truth.  And yet, his teachings are deceitful.  Now, back to the comment that he says God does not hate.  All one has to do is go to: Psalm 5:5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
Psalm 11:5 The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.
Leviticus 20:23 And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them.
Proverbs 6:16-19 These six [things] doth the LORD hate: yea, seven [are] an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,  An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,  A false witness [that] speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
Hosea 9:15 All their wickedness [is] in Gilgal: for there I hated them: for the wickedness of their doings I will drive them out of mine house, I will love them no more: all their princes [are] revolters.
Romans 9:13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.

Chuck Tate's sermon dealt with the fact that God does not hate and He is only love.  Mr. Tate is ignoring Scripture when he makes such a claim.  It is not the sin that God hates (even though he does hate sin), it is the sinner who commits the sin and does not repent of his sins.  God's Word says he HATES the sinner. 

to all those who plan to comment using foul language, just realize that all you are doing is proving my point about a false preacher who is misleading his flock.  His sermon is "close" to being true, but being close is not enough.  It MUST be absolutely biblical.  He supports smoking, drinking, cussing and vulgar language and meditative trances by supporting groups like The Cigar Chronicles.  He puts on a good mask that looks like Christianity but his inner soul is lacking and supporting the ungodly way of living.

Find a church that believes in holiness.  We are to love the things that God loves.
Look again at smoking, drinking, cussing, vulgar language and meditative trances.  What does the bible say on these.  Here is one verse to consider out of many.

1 Corinthians 6:12 which says All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

Being brought under the power of alcohol, drugs, smoking and of course, meditation are all bad for you.  The cussing is found in James where it speaks of our tongue and what comes out of the mouth shows what is in our heart.  Some people have a "need" to have a tattoo, they have come under the power of that thing they put on their skin.  One is not enough, they MUST keep getting more and more tattoos.  This verse in Corinthians is followed later on by this one...

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

Glorify God in your body.  Glorify God!  Glorify Him!  All that you have comes from God. Even the very money that you spend to help a worker of the devil continue his trade, even it belongs to God and yet you would rather allow someone to continue selling cigarettes by supporting them, you would rather support a tattoo artist so he can put the works of the devil on the next customer.  The money belongs to God and I would be willing to say that those people who are caught up in their habits, do not give to God that which is His.  They maybe give a very small amount of money and feel they are tithing.  To tithe is to give at least 10% of your gross income.

What will it take for people to see that when pastor's feel they must entertain people in order to get them to come into the church, they are actually telling the world that they do not believe God's Word to be true and powerful (they may say they believe, but their very actions prove otherwise.).
Run from this kind of church.  Do not walk, do not look back but run from this place.  Find a bible believing, HOLY Church to attend.  You do not need to be entertained with stupid acts and tricks -- that is of the DEVIL.

Bible Teaching Gone Wrong...

Thus saith the Lord...
or does He?
TV Evangelist, Radio Ministry, Bible Study Leader, Sunday School Teacher and yes, even the Pastor can and even most often are guilty of misleading the people with faulty teachings that do not line up with the Word of God.  Take a look at the following example...
1.  rest                                  a.  work                           T.  play
2.  minute                             b.  hour                            R. second
3.  find                                 c.  lose                              9.  keep
By presenting the above example on the white board at school, I had kids create a whole theology based on these words and numbers and letters.  They were asked what all of the words had in common.  They said, "God?"  "Trinity?"  "A bible verse?"  "Try?"  It was amazing what the kids came up with.  Whenever they would suggest something, I would nod my head and write it on the board. 
When sitting in church, how often do you have a pastor, a teacher or a leader of some kind ask the people what their "opinion" is of the scriptures being studied?  One person will say something like, "I think it means this..."  or "I feel that God is telling us this..." but all the while, they are never able to reference anything with other scriptures. 

Kind of sounds like Joel Osteen, Mike Murdock, Rick Warren, Joseph Prince, TD Jakes, Creflo Dollar.  The list goes on and on.  Rock Church and all of those other churches that distort God's Word and deceive the people will be held accountable to God.  But the real issue is this...

Have you studied God's Word to the point where you can recognize a false teacher when you see him or her.  If it is her, then you already know it is a false teacher if she is a pastor or is leading a group of men in the bible. 

Is this something you care to debate?

Are you a Christian Legalist?

Many people are quick to cry out -- YOU ARE A LEGALIST!

But the sad thing is this...
They do not know what the term legalist means.  They cry it out because they have heard other people say it and they try to act, and the key word here is they "act" like they have knowledge of God's Word.
The first one to cry out "legalist" was Satan himself when he was speaking to Eve.
Ye shall not surely die.  Genesis 3:4
Eve believed the lie and as a result of her believing Satan, sin entered into the world.   It is true, there are people who are legalist  in the purest sense of the word.  They make up laws and rules and then try to live by those rules in order to get to heaven.  For those people, they have no understanding of the grace of God and His Good News.  There are people that say "if you don't abide by the laws that 'I' say you should keep, then you will not go to heaven."  Again, to those people, they are a legalist and do not know God.
Here is where the problem comes into the picture.  Just because someone says the word "legalist" does not make it so.  Let me give you an example.
God's Word says "ye shall not commit adultery."  That is not "me" saying that, it is God's Holy Word.  Now, did His Word stop having any meaning just because we have the New Testament?  Of course not.
See what the Apostle Paul said about this...
"What then? shall we sin, because we are not under law, but under grace? God forbid."
Many times what you will find is the person who yells out "legalist" the most is the very person who is sinning the most.  They love their sin.  They want to commit adultery with every man or woman they can find and they do not want anyone to tell them what God's Word says about it.  In fact, they will find other people who agree with them so they feel they have an army behind them to defend their sexual perversions.  One person in particular has a man she calls her uncle (he is not a blood relative) and she says he is her "spiritual father."  He has taught her so much.  He teaches her about God along with a rock and roll type of church.  He claims to be a prophet of God.  He has no understanding of God's Word (although he pretends he does) and he is leading impressionable young girls into hell with him.  He recently got divorced and has little teen girls as his "nieces" even though they are not related to him.  It is a sick and perverted person that has girls believing "his" lies.  They are gullible enough to believe him. Why? Because they love their sin and he would never ever tell them that it was wrong to live such a sinfilled lifestyle.  A person who will not tell you the TRUTH OF GOD'S WORD is someone who HATES YOU.  A person who distorts God's Word so you can live in sin is a person of the devil himself. 
The Rock and Roll Church that I wrote about is one that believes it is okay for you to go out and mark your body up with tattoo's.  It is okay to use GOD'S MONEY to support someone doing the devil's work on the next customer that comes in.  The pastor is an entertainer that does skits to entertain the rock and roll people.  He will cry out "legalist" if you try to tell him that the bible says that church is to be done in an orderly fashion.  1 Corinthians 14:40 says, "Let all things be done decently and in order."  This refers to how church services are to be held.  Now, contrast that to a church that plays "Born to be Wild" on stage.  They also sing, "I've God Friends In Low Places."  Not exactly God honoring is it?
It is not legalistic to tell people what God's Word says.
It is not legalistic to tell people about God's Word.
It is not legalistic to tell people that the KJV Bible is God's Word.
It is not legalistic to tell people about the Words Jesus Christ himself spoke.
It is not legalistic to tell people that God's Word says that if we are not obedient to the Father, then the love of the Father is not in us.
It is not legalistic to tell people "thus saith the Lord."
It is not legalistic to tell people to repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
If all of the above dictates who a legalist is, then say hello to the Apostle Paul, to Timothy, to Peter, to John, to all of the disciples.  Say hello to me!  For I would rather follow in the footsteps of Jesus and his disciples who gave their lives for Him, than to follow a person who makes provisions to sin and who winks at sin like it is a right and a priviledge that they own.
Not everyone who claims to be a Christian (especially a prophet of God) is saved.  Not every pastor who leads a congregation is saved (especially if he allows God's people to sin by mocking other Christians who follow God's Word). Not every girl or boy is saved when they go out a purposefully put themselves in a situation where they will sin (ADULTERY is a big one for some people!) 
Always remember that Jesus said, "Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart."
I'm sorry, was I a legalist for telling you that God says we should not commit adultery?  That to even look at another person with lust is the same thing as adultery in God's eye's?  You will get no apology from me on this one!  But those people who cry "LEGALIST" will be sure to find fault with it.  They will say that it is not my place to tell people not to sin.
Let me remind them of this one thing...

Then Peter and the [other] apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.  Acts 5:29
Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?   Romans 6:16
The first words Jesus spoke in his public ministry were -- REPENT...
John the  Baptist began by saying -- REPENT
and Peter in his famous speech at Pentecost was constantly reminding people the need to REPENT.
People who cry out LEGALIST do not want to hear the word repent.  They feel they have liberty to sin at will with no consequences whatsoever.  The bible tells us to judge those within the church.  Those crying LEGALIST will tell you that the bible is wrong and that it is a lie to judge those within the church.
Are you a Christian Legalist?
If you have man-made rules and feel you must abide by them to get to heaven, then the answer is YES, you are a legalist.
If you just share God's Word with people, all the while realizing that we are saved by faith alone and not of works, then you are saved.  But if you live in your sins and are following after false teachers and supposed prophets, then you most likely are not saved.
My prayer is that all will come to Christ.  REPENT! Before it's too late!
