NO ONE REALLY LIVES UNTIL CHRIST IS FORMED WITHIN

Have any of you who claim to be Christ’s followers ever stopped from all the business of “YOUR” life to seriously consider what is the true meaning of the Gospel? According to the majority of those who are pastors of all the different denominational and independent churches in America and many others around the world, GOD wants everyone to be loving towards and inclusive of all faiths and lifestyles, healthy in body and mind, are financially sovereign, and are the envy of the communities in which they live, believing that this is evidence of true Christian expression. A gospel which is built upon the needs, the wants, and the hopes of people.

Contrary to this belief, the Bible is a testament of GOD from GOD, and is given to us for the purpose of revealing the deity of Christ in creation and through the salvation of those who believe. When studied carefully, the Bible tells a very different story than that which is believed by most people who profess to be either Christian or Catholic, or of the many religious beliefs which are similar too and are wrongly thought to be Christian. True Christians the world over suffer incredible hardships and persecution, imprisonment and are often murdered for their public proclamation of faith in Christ by Islamists, Hindus and the observers of many different world religions, while especially in America today we arrogantly live far above our needs and are adamantly opposed to submitting to that which is taught in Scripture as the biblical expression of Christian faith.
Our life is not our own! We who have come to realize the vile sins we have committed against the Holy GOD, and that we desperately need salvation and have believed and accepted Christ’s atonement for our sins are now obligated to be a witness to those who have yet to learn this truth. This calling is not meant to be contained within the safe-zone of the buildings where we gather as is purported by those opposed to the proclamation of the biblical Gospel. Yes, here is where Christian disciples are to be taught by those whom GOD has ordained to give instruction to how we are to rightly understand what the Scriptures teach about GOD, and of how this knowledge then forms our world-view and thus defines the Christian life that we live among world-societies. If not us, then who? This is the evidence of the Gospel’s message which people first see in our character and is evident by the conduct of our lives.

In the time in which we now live people do not want to be told that they sin against GOD and that they must repent and turn away from the sinful life that they love, and trust Christ for their salvation. People are either adamantly hostile towards those who would even dare to offend their emotions, or they want only to be told that GOD is love, and that they are free to live any lifestyle they choose as long as they love GOD and are kind and accepting of everyone they know.
I believe that this is the greatest injustice a Christian can commit against another person. Unless we are willing to confront the societies in which we find ourselves we are not a living testament to the transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and therefore we have sinned against GOD. As Christian disciples, we must boldly confront people with the truths of the Gospel and then pray that GOD will bring to life in these people the seed of regeneration that has within itself the power to transform the life of those who will believe. This is uncomfortable and it can be intimidating especially considering the hostility which many people express towards the true Bible believing Christians of today. They hated Christ. Do not think it strange that they will hate us also.

Ours is an impossible life apart from the undeserved favor of GOD whose Spirit indwells the recreated spirit and the renewed mind of the person who dares to believe. We are commanded by GOD to repent and to believe Christ, and to tell others that they must do the same. Only then does GOD willingly give to us the hope of assurance in knowing that in Christ we are declared righteous and that we are saved from the wrath of GOD which will one day come upon all who did not believe. Theirs is a lifetime of hopeless questions of which only the Christian disciple has the answers for. We are the salt of the earth. Let us act like it!

I HEARD THE SPIRIT OF GOD SAY

Filed under: Writing — William D. Simpson @ 1:58 PM
Tags: , , , , , ,

It was during one of the darkest times in my life when I had become so disgusted with the life I was living, that I separated myself from everything I was familiar with. For a year and a half, all I did was study the Bible to try to find meaning in all the bad I had experienced. At times I would weep when reading about what Christ had done for me, and my meditation was would GOD somehow make this unbelievable hope to become reality to someone as undeserving as me. Then one night early in the morning, as I wept while worshiping GOD in prayer and in the study of GOD’s Word, I heard the Spirit of GOD say:

“I Am the LORD your GOD. I have brought you out of bondage. You will have no other god before Me. You will put nothing before your worship of Me. I Am the LORD your GOD, and I Am a jealous GOD over you. I will love you all of your life. Love Me and live for Me.”

GOD’s presence was so tangible that I fell to my knees in awe and in fear that GOD would consider me. The presence of GOD is something to behold, but, the presence of GOD is not something with which we can be so crass about.
I do not think myself privileged for the encounters I have had with GOD in my lifetime, but I do believe that GOD revealed Himself to me in this way to solidify my confidence in the hope which I now proclaim. I cannot be silent nor will I be concerned with the complaints of those who are offended when I preach Christ crucified, and that salvation is through Christ alone.

GOD reached down into utter darkness to reveal truth to me. I therefore can do nothing other than give my life to the study of GOD’s truth, and to trust that GOD will graciously allow the unsaved to see Christ through me. This is the out-working of the impossible attainment of the regeneration of a dead spirit and, of a mind being renewed to the hope of GOD accepting Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross of Calvary as my atonement.

Simply defined: When GOD looks at the cross He sees me, and when GOD looks at me, He sees Christ. How can a lost humanity not give their life to GOD? This is the indictment I will continue to confront society with. Who do you think you are, fool! To reject Christ is to spit in GOD’s face. This is not something I recommend you do…

THE WORLD IS BETTER BECAUSE OF CHRIST

I’m amused with the arrogance of educated people who think that they are wise, but are actually imbecile. Those who exercise all of their cognitive reasoning in the attempt to rationalize away the undeniable truth of creations God and with it, the thought of having to give an answer to the moral law-giver for the life one has lived. The recent debate between David Wolpe and Dinesh D’Souza, and A.C. Grayling and Matthew Chapman “The World Would Be Better Off Without Religion” was the epitome of intelligent ignorance.

http://fora.tv/2011/11/15/Debate_The_World_Would_Be_Better_Off_Without_Religion

In his book, the recently deceased author Christopher Hitches wrote about “God Is Not Great, How Religion Poisons Everything.” His world-view, much like the world-view of both Grayling and Chapman and most every person alive today both religious and non, focuses on the wrongs that imperfect people do, as was addressed by David Wolpe in his opening statement. What they intentionally avoid bringing attention too is the person whose life has been fundamentally transformed by the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Who is then used by GOD to bring about radical change in the lives of other people and, has led the way to many of the greatest humanitarian advancements in world history. I would like to suggest that God is good, and that good apart from God is in reality the arrogant expression of irrational justification of a person’s perceived self-worth. Pride is the sin which God hates most!

Read a book the will challenge the self-proclaimed atheist and the adherent of every world-religion that has ever been observed, in their attempt to explain away the evidence of the Christian religion being the only true expression of worshipping creations God. Their religion is in the rejection of, or is centered upon mans attempt to dethrone God by bringing God down to man’s attainment. Whereas Christianity is God’s own handiwork in the salvation of the person who in humility accepts the scandalous representation of the Gospel as God’s only will and testament of His separateness to humanity. No one apart from Jesus Christ has, nor ever will, be accepted by the Holy, Holy, Holy God.

So in summary, the real lesson to be learned here is to never give to a fool the microphone. The blind person cannot lead other blind people out of spiritual darkness. But in this age of tolerance where we now find ourselves, Christian apologists such as Mr. D’Souza are required to give equal time to the fool who has nothing to say worth hearing. I long for the day when the Christian man who is confident in the knowledge of the doctrine of Christ’s substitution, stands face to face with the educated imbecile as Elijah did to the prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel, to make a mockery of them. Elijah had no respect for their unbelief, neither do I. The world longs for the sons of God to be revealed, whose lives and preaching and ministry of caring for the people in the communities where they live, proves to that society that “The World Is Better Because Of Christ.”

OUR WORLD DESPERATELY NEEDS THE TOUCH OF ITS CREATOR

TRUTH IS WINSOME

Author William D. Simpson’s Personal Testimony To The Life Transforming Power Of The Gospel Of Jesus Christ.

There are no words to adequately express the appreciation I owe to GOD but in the way that I know best, I will attempt to describe the awe-inspiring depth of GOD’s love which captured me.

This is why I am a Christian, and is the reason I could never be silent…

I was a child of rape,
Fatherless,
Unloved by a mother, not wanted, neglected, beaten, burned and abandoned,
Fostered and then adopted by those who did not cherish nor protect,
Molested, raped, shamed,
Innocence lost,
Told was a mistake, no good, would never amount to anything,
Cursed, kicked, slapped, whipped, beaten,
Learned by example that alcohol and drugs would numb the pain,
Runaway,
Bullied, beat up, drug overdose and left for dead,
Hospitalized, juvenile incarceration, and told again that I would never amount to anything,
Hopeless, angry, alone,
Sentenced to juvenile life in prison,
Attempted rapes, countless fights, stabbed repeatedly, and in isolation hatred consumed,
Released from prison, unwelcome, homeless, hungry,
Never begged but ate out of dumpsters and occasionally worked for food or cash,
My youth and seemingly helpless condition was the lust of another’s deviant sexual behavior, who were played, beaten and robbed,
Alcohol warmed on cold nights,
Lonely women in bars were nothing more than a bed to sleep in,
Uncaring, indifferent, selfish, self-loathsome,
Attempted suicide, and angry that even death evaded me,
Married and was soon divorced,
Immersed in the bartend culture,
Became a stripper, an escort, drug dealer, a player,
For the twenty years following my release from prison I woke up in the morning to get high and laid down drunk every night,
Never saw in any other what I had always hoped could be real,
Dead is spirit, mean, calloused, vile and vulgar defines the man I had become. Then the unexpected happened…

GOD graciously and undeservedly reached down into utter blackness to reveal the truth of Christ’s redeeming work on the cross of Calvary to save as vile a man as me. So real was GOD’s presence as tears of joy washed away a lifetime of anger and pain. Gone was the guilt of my sin against GOD when reading that by accepting Jesus as my Savior and my LORD, GOD had declared me righteous. Nothing in my past had power to enslave me anymore. It was then that I realized why GOD chose me. I know hurt. I know pain. I know intimately the hopelessness felt by all people today. But most importantly, I know that GOD can save.
What I did, I no longer do. I’m not without fault, but the sins I used to love I now hate. When I am wrong I am easily hurt in knowing that GOD’s Spirit within me is grieved, and I’m quick to ask for forgiveness. And true to the written Word, GOD has taken from me the heart hardened by sin, and has birthed in me a sincere concern for the needs people have and, of the urgency for their eternal salvation. In Christ, GOD gave to humanity His all in that GOD died in our behalf that we would be given the privilege to truly live. Salvation is a free gift, but the soul’s transformation will cost the Christian disciple everything. As I am becoming a very different person, this is a testimony to the life-transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Now three years drug free,
In love with and happily married to the woman GOD chose to love me,
A helper to those who cannot help themselves,
Joined a truly Christian church,
Grew to believe that I can,
And of all things, I wrote a book about it all…

Once in awhile, someone comes along with a bold message, completely transforming the way that we view the world around us. Celebrity authors, academians and media personalities have long dominated the attention of the masses. But in this particular instance that someone is not famous, but is a person who has seen the world through a different set of eyes than most people.

GOD is real, and the book which I have written is a testament to the authenticity of the GOD of the Bible. The sole intent throughout the message of my book is to provoke deep thought by challenging the defense of one’s reason. “Why do I think like and continually do the things that I do?” For far too long we have been deceived by those who have manipulated the truths about GOD, and of how this vital world-view has influenced the societies in which we now live. Hurt people,hurt other people.
In an age given over wholly to relativism, it is my challenge for anyone to read the book which I have written and then attempt to rationally debate their disbelief of GOD, or, the belief that GOD is anything other than what has been revealed through the pages of Holy Scripture.

Of all the world religions and religious ideals, is it too difficult to believe that GOD is capable of revealing the truth of who GOD really is, and, what humanity must do to be accepted by GOD. I think not! No one can rationally defend their disbelief of GOD. For reason and conscience affirms the reality of GOD, and is why humanity hates this truth. They would rather love darkness…

Throughout history people have always insisted that the Christian give proof of GOD. I will say that Christ’s disciples have done just this by the evidence of a life forever changed. Will you give GOD the opportunity to prove to you the reality of His seperateness. GOD is so good. Our world desperately needs the touch of its CREATOR…

It is my prayer that your saving-faith will come to life while reading the personal testimony of a man who was broken by GOD to learn what it really means to love.

After nearly two years in print and very little media coverage as the result of a publisher being either prejudice of or intimidated by its message, I am offering my book for free to download in digital format. It’s never been about the money I could have made, but the possibility of my life’s testimony helping someone else to acknowledge the truth about salvation through Jesus Christ and Christ alone. I sincerely hope that you will read this book and recommend it to the people you know.

CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS NOW BELIEVES IN GOD

Filed under: Writing — William D. Simpson @ 1:19 PM
Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

GOD IS…

God is separate. God is holy. God is right. God is love. God is forgiving. God is just.

God is everything we are not for we are evil, wicked, vile creatures who hate the idea that God has given the law that we are to abide by. The love of God that all people refer to, and is grossly misunderstood, is displayed in the atonement that God made for humanity by killing Himself in the person of Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary who willingly took upon Himself the furry of God’s holy anger against the fallen creation God loves. Only Christ could be this substitute!
The anger at those who tell people that they will be judged by God for rejecting Christ’s offer of salvation is too rejecting God. No one can know God apart from Christ. No one can come to believe in Christ apart from God drawing this person and revealing this precious gift. And the only possible way that a person can know about God is by the preaching of God’s Gospel.

We are GOD’s creation and we will all stand before God one day to answer for the life we have lived. Noted author and debater Christopher Hitchens died yesterday. He lived apart from God and only God knows his end. But Scripture is clear that if a person dies without having accepted Jesus Christ as Savior and as LORD, they are then of themselves subject to the wrath of God’s holy anger in the depths of an eternal HELL. Don’t be the fool who lives as if there is no God. Your world-view is grossly wrong.

Their Intent To Criminalize Free Speech In America

One thing must first be understood. America was not founded as, is not, and never will be a Christian nation. Nations are not Christian. People are. A nation’s people though, will always follow the example of its leaders.

Though privileged from its inception, America has followed the historical account of all great nations before. Birth, prominence, military might, prosperity, complacency, apathy, and eventual decline into moral depravity. Our founding fathers were greatly influenced by the moral teachings of Scripture, and is why so much of what America once was, the remnant of what so few still hold on to today, and just maybe what we can be once more: “A nation of people whose trust is in, and who rely solely upon the sovereign guidance of the GOD of Scripture.” GOD gave birth to America, and, GOD will certainly bring America to its ruin unless we as a nation repent.

It is undeniable that President Obama’s intention to fundamentally transform America, and is being skillfully and tactfully accomplished by his administration, is vastly different than what our founding fathers penned their approval of when signing away their lives and fortunes upon “The Declaration of Independence.” They knew the moral corruption in man, and is why the historical documents that record our nation’s founding are all connected by the undeniable evidence of Christian morals and ethics. History shows that none of our founding fathers were perfect men, and only John Witherspoon was Christian clergy, but our nation’s birth is evidence of these men all being guided by divine providence. But you will not find this being taught in the classrooms of education today.

What has and is being taught though, is what has brought America’s unique way of life to the death-defying edge utter collapse. Will we survive? The American people are unique in that we have the opportunity to be creative in thought and in work ethic, and is why our way of life is so vastly different than that of any other people. But, history does not lie.

Many of the great universities across our nation were founded to train Christian pastors for the work of evangelism. Not so today. The Bible was once the text-book used in school to teach children how to read and in the process, children were taught about the GOD of Scripture and of Christian morals. Not so today. Thus setting the precedence for the choices these children made, which then greatly influenced the lives they lived. Again, not so today.

What is being taught to children today would infuriate our founding fathers. Gone is any sense of GOD and of Christian influence. Children are taught that their lives are no more valuable than that of an animal, a bug, a tree, a rock. Evolutions theory has never been nor will it ever be proven as fact, and yet this lie is taught as absolute truth. When a child believes that their life has no real value, a societal pandemic can be the only end result affecting every person. Just look at America today. Hurt people hurt people! To not be inconvenienced, American women murder 1.4 million unborn children every year. Child abuse is rampant. Babies give birth to babies. Alcohol and drug use dominates American culture. Crime is rampant and the jails and prisons are overflowing. Fornication, homosexuality, adultery and divorce, have all redefined the American family. Our nation’s populace has followed the example of our government in that people live way above what their income allows, and is why financial debt is the leading cause for people making decisions that break up the majority of families, thus setting the precedence for their children to follow. It is a vicious cycle that will never be broken until the individual person is willing to unlearn what has influenced their world-view with what GOD has revealed about Himself in Scripture, and about the hopelessness of each individual apart from trusting GOD to do a work of salvation in their life.

President Obama’s fundamental transformation of America is exactly the opposite of what GOD intended for our great nation. GOD once chose Israel to be the people to reveal Himself through to all other nations of the world. It is evident that this was GOD’s intent in the establishment of America and of our government which so eagerly adopted biblical Christian morals as the foundational mortar of this great nation, and of our way of life. We were great once. We can be again.

Will we, as a nation’s people, allow a few evil people to destroy the hope of the world? American missionaries have brought more Bibles, more humanitarian accomplishment/food, medicine, housing, wells dug, sanitation, education, etc., than all other nations combined. Proving the truth of the benefits to world societies by those who adhere to a Christian world-view. And, that Christianity is the only religion that reveals the GOD of Scripture to the world. We mustn’t, but Christian expression is ever so close to being criminalized in America by a President who vocally claims to be a Christian, but his life and political advocacy proves different.

Every facet of the United States government, Obama’s Presidential Administration, both the Senate and the House, and the Judiciary, have waged all out war against the Bible, and against anyone who adheres to the biblical teachings of Jesus Christ as Savior and as sovereign LORD, and of telling anyone about sin and that they will one day be judged by GOD. This can be no more evident than the advancement being made by the militant homosexual agenda upon every aspect of American life today. State governments are by order of the Obama administration, giving precedence to homosexual advocates above the will of the people and to indoctrinate children with the acceptance of homosexual sex being normal. Universities, corporations and the work-place, entertainment, media and the liberal church have all embrace the homosexual movement with open arms. DOMA, DADT, and SSM dominates the news media and the attention of the American people, while the intended agenda of the elites to bring restrictions upon and the eventual silencing of our First Amendment Right advances almost unnoticed. As has Europe and Canada, they (the elites) intend to criminalize Christianity. And yet “We, the People” remain silent. The sheeple had better wake up!

There are roughly 300 people who make up the branches of the federal government which then determines the lives of some 300 million other people. Of those 300 million less than 2% are professing homosexual/lesbian. A brief lesson in world history. No nation that openly embraced the homosexual lifestyle and then allowed this behavior to influence their culture has survived. Do the research… And here in America, we are embracing an amoral behavior and have given the control of our nation’s government over to individuals and organizations whose sole intent is to remove any and all opposition to their sexual preference so that they will not have to be reminded of the sin they commit. Their platform is equal rights. Their intent is to silence Christians. Unfortunately, the homosexual is so blinded by their greed to freely and uncondemned engage in free sex that they are unable to see how the world-elites are using their political agenda to silence free speech. When or if this does happen and the class separations are no longer, the homosexual will then realize the fool they were played to be.The US federal government does not care about someone’s right to indulge in free sex. They do though use the political momentum of that time to ensure the necessary votes for the advancement of their agenda. SOCIALISM!!!!

It’s not my intent to demonize any person. It is my intent to hopefully help people to realize what is happening to our nation, who is responsible, and what we must do as a nation to cause GOD to repent of His judgment of America. Do not be deceived! GOD has passed judgment. The rise of unabated and unashamed sin is GOD’s judgment of abandonment upon a nation. The American people have been left to their own wicked imaginations, and the evidence is the current state of those who lead our nation and, is reflected in the lives of the people of this nation.

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.” (Romans 1:18-32)

This passage of Scripture defines what America has become, and its truth has pronounced GOD’s judgment upon our nation. When a nation’s people rejects GOD, as America has, GOD will eventually reject that nation. But, there is still hope. Only when after the church first repents of its whoredom with the secular world will GOD bring righteousness to America once again.

“If My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place.” (2 Chronicles 7:14-15)

America has succumbed to the deplorable condition it has because the church has forsaken GOD. Not all, for there is a remnant who stands firm upon the revelation which GOD has given to man. These few will never bow down to the winds of political and cultural correctness nor to any law, policy or threat imposed upon the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The foolishness of preaching the Cross of Calvary is the only hope that America has of being reconciled to GOD.

Liberal Christian church leaders who have abandoned the teaching of GOD’s law revealed in Scripture have themselves been abandoned by GOD, and are apostates. Do not listen to these wolves in sheep’s clothing. They are the enemies of GOD and their words will damn the follower to an eternal hell.

“For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds.” (2 Corinthians 11:13-15)

How does a person discern between the true Christian teacher and the false? Simple.

-The false teacher addresses issues with words to make those who listen to feel at ease.

-The preacher of biblical truth will always labor to bring conviction upon the hearer.

“I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.” (2 Timothy 4:1-5)

If America is to be a great nation once again, the preaching of the GOD of the Bible must become the central focus of all public discourse. Bring correction to how people view GOD and their behavior will change for the good. Change the person transform the family. Change the family transform the community. Change the community transform the state. Change the government of each state transform our nation.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Again, none of these men were without sin, but GOD’s providence led these men to establish a nation that would advance the preaching of the Gospel to all the nations of the world. The only chance of humanity learning about the GOD of Scripture, and the hope of eternal salvation. This is our nation’s purpose. Will we allow the GOD haters to take from us the rights bestowed upon us by the ONE who created us and blessed us to be born in the only nation to be founded upon the principles GOD Himself gave to us in His Holy Bible?

I am convinced that truth is worth fighting for. In 2012 the American people will be given the chance to elect a new President. If America is to survive, We the People who value GOD, freedom and country, must rise up together to defeat the Obama administration and, upon electing a Republican President to the Oval Office, We the People must hold this administration to their oath of defending our Constitution against all enemies both foreign and domestic. Any and all laws/policies enacted under the Obama administration that are a threat to our constitutional rights must be dissolved. I hope that in my lifetime America will not become a Socialist nation. We have this chance, but only if we act. Do not allow the few to determine the lives of everyone else. It is time that what is right is celebrated and what is wrong condemned. History proves that morals determine the outcome of a nation.

What the homosexual claims is hate and bigotry directed at them by Christians is in fact the truest form of compassionate love one person can offer to another. It would be an injustice committed by Christians to not tell another person that what they do is sin! This is why the Christian must confront their culture with the truth of GOD’s Gospel…

The Christian pastor must be willing to set the example for those in his congregation by speaking out on issues that are contradictory to what Scripture teaches is moral behavior. And even more importantly, he must educate society about those whom We the People elect to public office, for these are those who influence our way of life. All political and cultural correctness aside. This is about the future existence of our nation!

America, your GOD is calling you. Will you answer?

GOD’S LOVE IS NOT BIGOTRY

A child not trained by loving parents will, inevitably, do things that will lead to decisions that will bring upon them trouble and/or injury and even death. This is unquestionably evidenced by the amoral condition of our societies today. This is true in the natural world in which we live and, it is even truer in the supernatural realm from where life has been granted to us all. Just as parents should have certain unquestionable expectations for their children to follow, it is certain that GOD does!

Your, my and everyone else’s opinion about what we think is right and wrong matters not. The only opinion that carries weight is what GOD has said!, and, the only voice that can accurately explain to people what GOD has said is the person/s who believes in and who adheres to a Biblical/Christian world-view. Homosexuality, as well as all other behaviors that are revealed in Scripture to be sin and an offence to GOD, must be confronted with the Word of GOD in hopes of the hearer realizing their hopelessness before the holy “Father GOD” who will judge all of humanity based upon the life they have lived.

This is why the true Christian witness is despised by today’s moral-relativistic societies. It is not hate and bigotry to tell someone that how they think, speak and choose to live is wrong. It is the only true expression of human love that can rescue evil people from the terrible anger of GOD which will one day come upon all people who hate GOD, and who have rejected GOD’s gift of love through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ upon the cross of Calvary.

This is, according to Scripture, foolishness to the person who does not have an understanding of the message of the Gospel, but, neither does ignorance excuse all people whom GOD has declared evil and are also commanded by GOD to repent. This is why the person/s whose life has been transformed by the recreative work of GOD unto salvation will not be intimidated by, nor will they avoid confronting the culture in which they live in hopes of reaching those who are granted the free gift of salvation.
Having an appreciation for the undeserved mercy and forgiveness of GOD is the compelling factor in authentic Christian witness and testimony. We love people because GOD first loved us, and we know that apart from the correction of GOD we also would, like a child whose parents do not correct them, endure trouble and injury in this life and inevitably, eternal death.

Rather than calling someone a bigot, a hater, or the many different vulgar names spewed from the mouths of those who are truly intolerant, maybe you should seriously consider the courage it takes and the authentic expression of love shown to you by the person/s used by GOD to lead you to salvation.

It is your GOD given privilege to choose to believe in GOD or to not believe. This is what separates humanity from all other created things. What a privilege we have been given to know GOD in this life and to learn about GOD and, to one day see GOD face to face, and will forever enjoy the awe-inspiring realization of fellowship with the man-GOD, Jesus Christ. Heaven awaits those who with child-like faith believes and trusts in GOD for the promise of salvation. But to those who are rebellious, HELL has been prepared. To reject Jesus as Savior and as sovereign LORD is to spit in GOD’s face! This is not something that I recommend you do…

Repent of your sin and live. Repent not and you will be damned! This is the Christ-centered biblical Gospel that must be preached.

WHY THE CONFUSION ABOUT GOD

For several years now there has been a concerted effort by academia, authors and religious leaders to try to convince people that the Bible is no longer relevant.

– Stephen Hawking does not believe that nature reveals the hand of GOD in creation.

– Christopher Hitchens argues that GOD is not great.

– Oprah Winfrey said that GOD is a feeling experience and not a believing experience.

– Deepak Chopra believes that god is everyone, and in everything.

– Eckhart Tolle wrote that deep within the human mind is absolute stillness in which one can experience the ‘Joy of Being’. 

– Muslim Clerics teach that Islam’s Allah is the god of peace to whom we must all submit to. 

– Brian McLaren preaches a new kind of Christianity.

– Joel Osteen happily encourages his listeners as to how to have their best life now.

– Barack Obama’s political stance is that we must be respectful of everyone’s religious beliefs, so that we can build upon this ideal a peaceful, world-wide community.

– Bill Maher’s disregard of GOD is that of a hapless fool.

and,

– Rob Bell’s recent book suggests that GOD’s love will ultimately win everybody a home in heaven.

And by what authority have they come to these speculative assumptions?

Lots of people find these teachings compelling, but to the discerning, it’s strikingly clear that these teachers all lack wisdom. The evidence being that they present to us the premise that GOD is utterly confused, and they attempt to lead people to believe that we can live as if GOD has no law. Please, think objectively. GOD is not confused! 

Of all the texts written to support the thousands of world-religions, only the Bible is specific, and leaves no room for the ideals of relativism.

Scripture teaches us that:

– In the beginning GOD created.

– GOD is holy, holy, holy.

– Humanity is evil, and seperated from GOD.

– GOD became man to be the atonement for man’s sin. 

– Only those who trust in the finished work of Christ on the cross will be rescued from the wrath of GOD, and will for all eternity be loved by GOD.

and,

– GOD will one day judge the rebellious of humanity. 

The message of the Gospel is vastly different than what we have been told. It can then be said with confidence, that all of these people of whom the world looks to for advice are themselves deceived, because what they teach is not based upon the truth of what Scripture reveals.

The answer then to the question behind their questions is that the absurdities of all the differing observations have led people away from, rather than towards, the knowledge of the one true and living GOD. As for the billions of people who follow false-teachers and have rejected GOD’s gift of love, HELL is their just punishment.  

The good news though is that GOD reveals Himself through the person of Jesus Christ, and then actively accomplishes the humanly impossible work of salvation in that person’s life. With today’s confusion about who GOD is and about the clarity of what the Bible really teaches, the transformation of a person’s life is a definitive answer to the skeptics of the Christian faith. So yes, there is the need for this truth to be taught.       

The Bible is very clear regarding the revelation of the person of GOD, the reality of HELL, and about the penalty Jesus took upon Himself, in our place. Eternity is forever. Choose wisely as to whom you listen too… 

LIVING IN THE HOPE OF MY IMAGINATION”, is a compelling story that gives testimony to the Bible being the only revelation of GOD, with the power to change lives.
