My belief in and on the Lord Jesus Christ...and those that judge me....

*****For those of you who JUDGE ME*****

Are you judging me?

Some say I'm an UNSAVED BELIEVER

Others say he's SAVED but NOT A CHRISTIAN

If anyone is stopping by to actually read this post I want to write a few things here concerning myself:

First, I believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and confess that he is the Son of God who was born of a virgin named Mary according to the scriptures and that he was crucified died and buried, rose the third day according to the scriptures, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father right now making intercession for me.

Many have told me along the way in life that I don't demonstrate myself to be a Christian and I know that various pastors I have met along the way have considered me to be "saved" and others consider me to be "unsaved."

Through studying the scripture throughly now for over 27 years, I have personally realized that many pastors have mishandled the word of God in various places.  I have been told not to worry about minor things and that we can "agree to disagree" on minor things but the major things about Christ and the gospel of Christ are the most important things to be in agreement over.

So then this gets further complicated and now many basically consign me as a disobedient unbeliever going to hell or they tell me that I'm saved but I'm not a Christian---all manner of things.  Other people tell me not to worry about what other's say and all that matters is what is between me and the Lord.  Is that so?

So to further complicate matters in this day of confusion and uncertainty we are being told that we should just love everyone and set aside differences and just plain have some kind of UNITY IN DIVERSITY (whatever that means).  Well, I guess it means that we can all have our opinions about God and his word and none of it really matters and whatever will be will be.  That to me sounds like many have resigned that there is any ABSOLUTE TRUTH anymore and that their is sort of a mindset that there are "truths in all faiths (or religions)."

What a mess this is today!  Just to give you an example in EPHESIANS 4.11 and verses following please read the following text in EPHESIANS CHAPTER 4.  And after you read this can someone tell me how we are coming together in the unity of the faith today?  How are we all doing? I leave it there for now....

EPHESIANS CHAPTER 4:

I THEREFORE, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech
you that ye walk worthy of the vocation
wherewith ye are called,
2 With all lowliness and meekness, with
longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the
bond of peace.
4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are
called in one hope of your calling;
5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and
through all, and in you all.
7 But unto every one of us is given grace according
to the measure of the gift of Christ.
8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high,
he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.
9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also
descended first into the lower parts of the earth?
10 He that descended is the same also that ascended
up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets;
and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and
teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of
the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of
the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect
man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness
of Christ:
14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to
and fro, and carried about with every wind of
doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning
craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into
him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together
and compacted by that which every joint supplieth,
according to the effectual working in the measure of
every part, maketh increase of the body unto the
edifying of itself in love.
17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that
ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the
vanity of their mind,
18 Having the understanding darkened, being
alienated from the life of God through the ignorance
that is in them, because of the blindness of their
heart:
19 Who being past feeling have given themselves
over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness
with greediness.
20 But ye have not so learned Christ;
21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been
taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:
22 That ye put off concerning the former
conversation the old man, which is corrupt
according to the deceitful lusts;
23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God
is created in righteousness and true holiness.
25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man
truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of
another.
26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down
upon your wrath:
27 Neither give place to the devil.
28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let
him labour, working with his hands the thing which
is good, that he may have to give to him that
needeth.
29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of
your mouth, but that which is good to the use of
edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye
are sealed unto the day of redemption.
31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and
clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you,
with all malice:
32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted,
forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake
hath forgiven you.
