The title said it once, but I will say it again: Christian Faith in America is a Joke.
Christianity is a religion and religion is man’s way to attempt to work his way to God. And you cannot work hard enough to enter the kingdom of heaven. When you look at the Christian church of America it is glutinous, complacent and prideful.
Christians fill up their own storehouses and disregard helping the widows and children, or most other people for that matter. If they give, it is not even as much as they spent on the last movie where they bought 4,000 calories in popcorn, 2,000 calories in soft drinks, and 1,000 calories of the least amount of candy in the biggest container that can possibly be sold.
The Christian faith proclaims to love other people, then they gossip, look down upon and ignore the unfortunate or those who have sinned way worse than everyone else. They treat their families in an ungodly fashion by having affairs, cheating them out of spending valuable time together and completely ignoring God when it comes to praying and teaching God’s word.
A Christians pride might as well be considered Pharisaical. They walk around with a “holier-than-thou” attitude, judging everyone around them with their version of what is good and bad, through their own made up God colored glasses. They condemn others for doing drugs, being homeless, having affairs, stealing, and the list goes on.
Christian faith hides behind the veil of the idea of “Love”. The churches message is soft, lacking a message that is worth any substance. Things like, “Go out and be nice to others so they can see God through you.” I have never had anyone ask me to tell them about Jesus because I was so nice to them.
These actions and activities are evident in the every day walk of life. A Barna research poll recently stated that 82% of Americans proclaim to be Christians. When you go to a restaurant, how many people do you see praying to God, giving thanks, before devouring their super-sized meal? I can count on both hands how many people I have witnessed this in the past 10 years.
How many Christians have recently talked to you about your faith, and explaining what the gospel is. Do Christians really know what the gospel is? It’s not accept God into you heart for salvation.
How many Christians:
- Choose money, sport and success over God?
- Look up to famous people or political figures?
- Use the name of God as a swear word?
- Have not taken time to rest with God?
- Have mistreated, hated or otherwise disgraced their parents?
- Have murdered? (The bible says he who hates his brother is a murderer) And abortion is absolutely the worst kind of murder.
- Committed adultery? I’m not even going to address Jesus’ comments about looking on another with lust is adultry. Christians are pathetic with affairs and divorces, especially at the leadership level.
- Have stolen anything? Software, candy, money, a girl’s virginity without marrying her? (yes that is adultry too, two birds with one stone.)
- Have purchased bigger RV’s, better cars, and prettier houses that they cannot afford, just so they can look successful?
- Have gossiped about others? Or told lies about others to protect themselves.
How many of you actually recognize the above bullet points as the 10 commandments in order?
Jesus died on the cross for our sins, and the amount of sins Christians commit under the “Christian Faith Insurance Policy” is appalling.
If Jesus’ disciples acted the way modern Christian faith does, we’d all be either Jewish or gentiles.
WAKE UP Christians! Faith in Jesus is not social status. Jesus is not a game. We cannot sugar coat Jesus any more. We either need to follow Him completely, or get out of the way and get real with ourselves that we choose our worldly sin over eternal salvation and just continue to walk in the ways of evil men.
Those are the only two choices, and since the church isn’t saying it, and since you are not reading it in your bible, let me be the first to tell you that you are failing and the American church is failing you too. (I’m not saying don’t go to church. I’m saying get right with God and find a church that equips you to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ.)
Repent your sins, turn completely away from them, accept Jesus as your savior, and walk with Him, spreading His gospel messages with others. That’s the only way that all of us who are made in God’s image and saved by the shedding of His son’s innocent blood, will pass through the narrow road on judgement day.
For those of you who consider yourself non-religious, or an atheist, before you laugh and move on, read the previous paragraph. The bottom line is, your life will come to an end someday and on the other side of life is God who gave you a choice to choose Him or not. And if you don’t, He will be sure you will live out eternity away from Him, and that does not mean an eternal Las Vegas. More like all alone with nobody around, and constant torture forever. So unbearable you will cry out and nobody will be listening. You will beg for someone to tell your friends and family to believe in God so they will not have to endure what you are.
