The Path More Often Taken

  1. There is a lot said about walking the talk of Jesus, but it seems to me for many their walk is still one of this world. This while ignoring the basics of Jesus' teaching, instead, promoting an attitude that says we are the elect, and regardless of what we do while supporting the man-made institutions and ideals of satan in this world (self promotion/determination), that we are still saved.

    Teaching Jesus through the eyes of the world rather than the eyes of the Kingdom, is akin to the blind leading the blind and entirely misses the point that Jesus and God do not support the ways of mankind. However mankind cannot let go of this concept of self promotion and continually makes God over to suit their own image rather than instead suiting His.


    Luke 16: 15 And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.

    It is very sad, but true that so many who profess to know Christ blindly follow traditional manmade doctrines that people are drawn to based on their personal preference. Some call themselves denominations, others non-denominations, and still others try to mask who they are altogether. These establishments are no different than the religious sects who confronted Jesus here on earth even to the point of putting Him to death. But praise God for His wonderful Gospel plan that lives on today and will endure to the end. There are many true Christians all around the world following Jesus and serving the kingdom of heaven by doing the will of the Father. Thank you for sharing!

      Agreed and thank you for your input. What you said "manmade doctrines that people are drawn to based on their personal preference." is indeed true. People look for like minded groups that suit their particular character or ideals, especially political, forgetting the whole idea is to throw off the flesh and change to suit the will of God rather than themselves.
