Mums the word

Posted on August 2, 2013 at 11:30 PM

This is a subject that no one likes to talk about, me either. Some Christians never mention it, or even believe in it. Many people condemn Christianity for condemning the world to Hell, which is definatley not true. Though there are those that condemn, Christians are actually those that have been saved from it, I am talking about Hell, a true Christian that is, we'll get into that later. And are warning others of this coming doom. Here is a fact you can believe in, death, we've seen it, will see it and all know some one that has or will die, and unless the Lord tarries, you will die too, as will I. You will leave your body, your body will be either destroyed by fire, (cremation) or put in a box and stuffed in the ground. Why? Because your body will rot, that same body that you look at so many time in the mirror, fixing your hair, brushing your teeth, stuffing your face will one day die, and rot just like spoiled meat. I'm not trying to sound harsh, I just want you to see your mortality. Your going to die, and so am I, maybe not today or tomorrow, but one day, within the next 50-70 years. That is a fact that you cannot escape. It's Halloween time, the stores are stalked with skulls and zombies, witches, werewovles and vampires. All things, that in our mind, that represent evil. This is both true and false, Halloween's main theme seems to be death and the obsession with it, I am not condemning Halloween, which means Holy eve, which was so given the name by the Catholic Church, not the ancient Druids. Halloween was an attempt to Christianize an already pagan Irish celebration., much the same way Christmas replaced the celebration of the winter soltice. Does this mean as Christians we are celebrating a pagen holiday and thus worshipping the devil? ROMANS 14:6-8He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks. For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's. If Halloween to you is a night or horror and of trickery, or a pagan holiday, then you shouldn't participate in it, if you call yourself a Christian, but if the night to you is a day to honor Christ and a tool to spread the gospel then no. I watch classic monster movies, I have a giant Frankenstien monster I put on my porch, I don't put up skeletons or zombies or vampires or witches or demons. Not that I'm saying any of that is evil, but it does in some way represent evil in our minds. I have always allowed my children to participate in trick or treating, I've tried to influence them to more wholesome costumes, I don't think there is anything wrong with Halloween parties or trick or treating, which by the way is pretty much an american custom, there are many fables about where it came from, but trick or treating itself was started in the early 1900's for american kids. I don't have anything against people that give out tracts on Halloween, but I'd bundle it up with a huge candy bar, (better chance of it being read). I mean c'mon, I'd be disapointed, lol. This is what the kids are expecting and Satan isn't passing out candy, people are. Do I think Halloween is Satanic? It can be, and yes does seem to be more and more so, but it wasn't when I was a kid. Yes, it's becoming more and more evil, but so is the world, and it's not going to go away. I don't have anything against harvest parties, but my opinion of it is the world is celebrating Halloween, which like I said was already given it's name for the night before All St's day centuries ago. It's time to actually celebrate Halloween and show the world what it's all about. Their are those that are trying to get you to stop celebrate Christmas as well. Like I said, yes it did replace pagen holiday, and paganism was pretty much for a time defeated, but we do live in the last days, which is why I said previously, if the Lord tarries. I do not want to scare anyone that we are living in the last days, but we are. I have had a feeling since I was a teen that I wouldn't see death but in fact would see the Lord return, even before I became a born again Christian. I'm getting off topic, Hell aint cool, Hell makes a good Halloween theme, I think. It's scarey, morbid, and doom related, yet most people, even those engrossed in the gore of Halloween, either are offended or avoid this subject. Why? Because it's a reminder of what is going to happen. If it were not so, it would not bother people, but deep down we all know it's true. No one likes to talk about Hell, the subject will change rather fast. People are AntiChrist more and more, because Jesus is a light that exposes their sin. It is sin, not Christ that condemns us to Hell, Christ is actually the only escape, and I mean the "ONLY" escape from Hell. We are born into sin, and we are tempted of Satan, and when we sin sin becomes our master. Anyone ever been addicted to anything, I myself have struggled with pornography, it's addictive, sin becomes your master and controls you and beats you down. Homosexuals are very truthful in saying they cannot help the way they are, sin has become their master. ROMANS 6:16Know 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? To say that God has made someone gay, is like saying God made someone a child molester or a murderer or an adulterer. God gave us free will, that is clearly not free will if someone is born a certain way. Homosexuality like any other "SIN" it's is a choice. Someone is tempted, takes a bite and falls into it, much as Darth Vader was misled by Darth Sidious, yes I'm using a Star Wars anology, deal with it... ISAIAH 5:13-16Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it. And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled: But the LORD of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness. We are a world born into sin, and the only way out is Jesus Christ. JOHN 3:16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. JOHN 14:6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. JOHN 7:37-39In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.) How is this applied? There are many theories, the most common is that by accepting Jesus as your Lord and savior this is applied, this is true to a point, but actually wrong and misleading. This is the current message preached in contemporary Christianity, but is not biblical. For Jesus said:(JOHN 3:3) Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. JOHN 3:4-5 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. Many a mislead Christian will have you believe that the water mentioned here is the water in which we are born through a fleshly birth and the spirit mentioned here is when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, Don't get me wrong, Jesus is my Lord and Savior, that is very much a part of salvation, but only the beginning. Why did John (the baptist) come baptizing, and even the deciples of Christ continued baptizing long after John, and even rebaptized some of his converts (ACTS 19:1-6) if baptism wasn't part of the process of salvation. I PETER 3:21The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ: The answer is simple a dead man cannot sin, he's dead, he's buried in the dust of the earth. A thief will never steal again, a murderer will never kill again, an adulterer will never cheat again, a homosexual will never again commit a homosexual act, a child molester will never again harm another child, and a sinner of any kind will never sin again once he is dead. Baptism is a symbol not of our commitment to Christ, but of our buriel, when we turn to Christ we die to this world, to sin, to every sin. ROMANS 6:3Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? ROMANS 6:4-7Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin. ROMANS 6:8-12Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. ROMANS 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. ACTS 2:37-39Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call. ISAIAH 1:18-20Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
