Not all Christians love, just the same as not all Muslims hate, there is good and bad in everything, let’s not forget that.
Let’s not stereotype everyone because thats when we rob people of their God given right to be wonderfully unique, loved by God for who they are, and Free Will to choose what is right for them.
God is Love … Love is kind, tolerant, patient, compassionate, merciful, generous, liberating, and most of all, it is free, and freeing, no strings attached, unconditional, Agape … A Gift from God.
As Christians we are to be Ambassadors for Christ, loving His Way, and in that way, all will see Christ living and shining in our lives. People will look at us and be in awe, not at us, but in the fact they can see, and get to know, the character of God through us.
They won’t have to sit around confused about who Jesus is, they will see Him living and loving through us, til we all look like mini Jesus’s, that’s when the body of Christ is working in Unity, and God’s Glory on Earth is reflecting Gods Glory in Heaven, when we live in His Love, His Way.
I have been watching a Christian Preacher, who has been preaching for 40 years, now I know that, because that is what he claims gives him authority over everybody on who Christ is, and the rules to get to Heaven. His rules are based on his understanding, but not based on the reality of the character of God, and I watch him do so much damage, in the Name of Jesus, and He does not care who he spews hate on, insults or abuses, it’s like watching a train wreck, you don’t want to see it, but for some reason you can’t look away, jaw dropping to say the least.
When posting Scripture he sounds awesome, wise words, good Christian man, but as soon as he freely expresses himself about the Kingdom of God, without Scripture, apparently everyone that disagrees with him, is going to hell, but if you agree with him, you get a thumbs up, lol, some people. So you clearly see he has no intimate relationship with Jesus, because he has no idea what true love is. He believes it to be his way or no way, and that is conditional love, Jesus is unconditional.
He claims to have the Holy Spirit Authority living in him, yet their is no Holy Spirit fruit within him, so his words don’t match his actions, and that is so disappointing because many will meet this man, and what should have been an encounter with the Holy Spirit becomes a hostile exchange with a hateful preacher, so a Golden opportunity is missed, not because the person wasn’t ready to meet with Jesus, but because Jesus representative blocked the encounter through pride, arrogance and ignorance.
So I don’t look at this Preacher and admire his heart and love for people, like Jesus, I look at him and feel sorry for him, and the many he insults and degrades, and all in the Name of Christ. He will never get to know the deep, hidden truths of Gods Kingdom, because his heart is not following Christ, his ego is, and his pride stops him from knowing the truth, a blind Christian, and boy does it show. His actions make a mockery of the very God he says he loves, and that is a shame.
I’ll give him one thing, he’s not prejudice, I have even witnessed him telling Christians they are going to hell if the don’t repent and do things his way, lol, so at least he is consistent in condemning everyone, there’s no favouritism there, lol 😂
I found this comment on his site, and it actually speaks for itself what kind of preacher he is, and believe me, this is one of the tamer, nicer posts I’ve seen …
“Australia always seem to be a weak country afraid to upset Muslims. Muslims must accept Anglo Saxon Law is supreme”.
First thing is, he is not Australian and yet he speaks as if he is, authoritative, again, he assumes so much.
Secondly, Australia is built up and made of Multi-Culturalism, and Muslims part of that mix, and are welcome too, we don’t discriminate because of their religion, it’s called freedom to choose.
Thirdly, not all Muslims are terrorists or hateful, just as not all Christians are loving and kind, there’s good and bad in every religion, even Christianity, and this Preacher proves that.
Fourthly, we are not weak because we let them live here with freedom to practise the religion of their choice, we are strong, and confident, in the fact that we have a long history of building a country, made up of citizens from all over the world, where we are all Australian. We don’t always get it right, but we work hard to ensure all are guaranteed their freedom, and fight for those whose freedoms are threatened.
Note: In saying that, we still have much to learn because we have 1250 refugees, that have been stuck in detention centres for years, left in Limbo, and that is not good, but that is a separate issue at this point.
Fifthly, this world is fighting Isis because they are hate filled dictators, forcing all to live their way, and the world screams for freedom, tolerance, free from Christian persecution, and so the world should be outrage by this threatening of our freedoms, and yet, this preacher is preaching no different.
He may not be calling to kill all who don’t think like him, but he does condemn them to hell, and he’s trying to take Muslims freedom by saying they must admit Anglo Saxon are superior, so tell me, how is that different. Isis is forceful and aggressive in action to enforce their ways (physical death) whilst this preacher is forceful and passive in action (verbally abusive and spiritual death), but at the end of the day, Isis and the preacher are saying the same thing, just from different sides, seriously.
Just from one small sentence he posted he told us so much about him, not Jesus, no wonder Christs body is in a mess, and this world doesn’t think much of Christians, we do it to ourselves by being hypocrites, we don’t look loving and authoritative in Christ, we look foolish, hateful and condemning, we confuse the rest of the world.
I love watching human nature, and how this world interacts, but some days it just leaves me scratching my head, and this is one of those days, lol.
In Order to be effective witnesses for Christ, and to make a difference in this world, we must get intimate with Jesus and build a personal relationship with him, it is then that we are effective, through love and life, and our personal walk with Him.
Jesus softens our hearts and teaches us how to truly love and live in peace, but when we carry on like raving lunatics, it reveals our corrupted state, not Jesus heart and purity.
Lets be good and faithful servants of the Lord, honouring him by doing everything His Way, life is so sweet, so precious, so beautiful, when Jesus is in it 😇
I pray we all Get Real … I pray we all Let go, and Let God.
Less of me & more of Him, what a beautiful affirmation to live by.
