The bible may hurt you with the truth but it will never comfort you with a lie.
Man will lie and does. In way too many cases the life of preachers does not coincide with what the bible teaches. Some expect you to repent of your sins, while they enjoy and refuse to repent of their sins. Yet the bible says in Mr 6:12 So they went out and preached that people should repent. Lu 13:3 "I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish. Lu 13:5 "I tell you, no; but unless you
repent you will all likewise perish."
Repent from fornication and adultery, from Lying and stealing, From Homosexuality and sodomy , from Child molestation and murder, from Pride and hatred. Repent from the sins of lying about the bible, and false teachings. Jesus commands all people to repent. But what about God? Should he repent? Nu 23:19 "God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?
Some make God in the image of man like the Mormons or Muslims. And many other religions even denominations. But the one and only true God does not need to repent for he never sins.
The bible may hurt you with the truth, but it will never comfort you with
a lie. When we talk about truth, try this on for size. Matthew 7:13-29 "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 "Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. 15 ¶ "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 "You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 "Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 "A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 "Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 "Therefore by their fruits you will know them. 21 ¶ "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 "Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' 23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!' 24 "Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25 "and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the
rock. 26 "But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them,
will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: 27 "and the rain
descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it
fell. And great was its fall." 28 And so it was, when Jesus had ended these
sayings, that the people were astonished at His teaching, 29 for He taught them
as one having authority, and not as the scribes.(NKJV)
1. This verse teaches that many many many people will go to hell, and only a sliver will make it to heaven.
2. Preachers and confessed Christians will be denied Heaven because they practiced Lawlessness.
3. People who have told you Lord, Lord I believe in the Lord, Yet the refuse to repent, to stand for the truth, or even love the word of God enough to learn what it really says. Will not make it to heaven.
4. People With no desire to please God , Know for sure Hell will be their home.
5. On the reversal side of things, If Jesus knows you, Heaven will be your home. Jesus said John 15:14 "You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.” These are people who do not see how close to sin they can get, without
sinning. But Love Jesus so much they want to be like he is. They morn over their sins. They repent of their sins, they learn continually what the Word of God teaches and grow in their knowledge while putting into practice what they learn from the bible. Very few people have that kind of heart.
A while back we put on our sign, “ this church will never respect or perform homosexual marriages.” Some in the homosexual were appalled, and many so called Christians churches sided in with them. But we had many in the community who gave us their support. They wondered why their denominations did not do the same? I submit to you, most will not hurt you with the truth, but would rather comfort you with lies.
It is the plea of the M21 Church of Christ to stand with what the bible says, We will speak where the bible speaks, no matter how unpopular, or dangerous it may be. And shun man made teachings no matter how popular they are. We want God’s approval, and we want to glorify him always!!! If you are looking for a group of Christians to fellowship with Check us out
The bible may hurt you with the truth, but it will never comfort you with a lie!!!
