MARRIAGE JOINED BY MAN




In this journey of detoxing from church, I often challenge myself to openly examine any and all religious teachings and practices that are in place within the institution of church.

Let me just say upfront that I do so NOT because I don't believe in God, or I don't believe in marriage.  I do so out of a very reverential and devoted love for God and the highest respect for marriage.

Last night, I was posting on relationships and marriage and before I went to bed the question popped up in my mind, 'WHERE DID THE MARRIAGE VOWS COME FROM ANYWAYS?'

We've all been to weddings:  most of them have sort of the same 'template' or 'format,' if you will.  The priest or preacher recites a scripture, maybe two.  Most people -including the bride and groom themselves - are not really paying attention to them as they ramble on.  They are mostly looking forward to the preacher getting to them repeating the vows.

It goes a little something like this:

"...I, ____, take you, ____, to be my (husband/wife). I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health. I will love you and honor you all the days of my life."

"I, ____, take you, ____, to be my lawfully wedded(husband/wife), to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part."

And then the priest/preacher says:

"The priest will then say aloud "You have declared your consent before the Church. May the Lord in his goodness strengthen your consent and fill you both with his blessings. What God has joined, men must not divide. Amen."

Some preachers recite scriptures beforehand that says that the husband should love his wife as Christ love the church...again, I want to reiterate, most people simply do not be listening to the preachers go through their spill.

The only part of the actual vows themselves that are based in scripture is the part that the preacher tells the WIFE to recite where she is made to promise that she will obey her husband!

Now, I used to work for a lawyer.  In a law school.  As a matter of fact, TWO law schools.  Boston College and SUNO (Southern University at New Orleans).  So I know a thing or two about law.

When you take vows in a legal ceremony, they are legally binding.  It's called a legally verbal agreement.  All you really need is one for it to be binding...that is where the witness in smaller, civil ceremonies come into play.

But I want to back up a bit and ask the VERY NEEDED QUESTION:  WHO CAME UP WITH THE PRACTICE OF WEDDING CEREMONIES????

According to Wikipedia, 'In the time of the Roman Empire (17 B.C.- A.D. 476) the lower classes (proletarians) had "free" marriages. The bride's father would deliver her to the groom, and the two agreed that they were wed, and would keep the vow of marriage by mutual consent. Wealthy Romans, though, would sign documents listing property rights to publicly declare that their union was legalized and not a common law marriage. This was the beginning of the official recording of marriage.

The oldest traditional wedding vows can be traced back to the manuals of the medieval church. In England, there were manuals of the dioceses of Salisbury (Sarum) and York. The compilers of the first Book of Common Prayer, published in 1549 based its marriage service mainly on the Sarum manual. Upon agreement to marry, the Church of England usually offered couples a choice. The couple could promise each other to "love and cherish" or alternatively, the groom promises to "love, cherish and worship", while the bride to "love, cherish and obey."  [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marriage_vows]

Now I find this very interesting.  That the very institution that - as far as I'm concerned - polluted the Church that GOD built - THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH - started this practice.

Most marriage ceremonies, according to the Wikipedia article are variations of the Catholic wedding ceremony that the pope(s) and the Diocese started.  This is very important to remember.

While I believe in marriage, I have no choice but to question the validity of 'wedding ceremonies' of ANY kind, ESPECIALLY THOSE PERFORMED BY A PRIEST, A PREACHER...EVEN A JUDGE.


Now, I know.  Someone is gonna say, 'But Wenona.  How will the marriage be 'official' in the eyes of man if it's not officiated by a priest, preacher or some other legal party?'

WHO came up with the 'idea' to make marriage a legal matter anyways?  WHO started the whole practice of filing papers with the government to make marriages 'official' anyways?

**THE CATHOLIC CHURCH!!!!!!***

ANY TEACHING OR RELIGIOUS PRACTICE INSTITUTED BY THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH I HAVE VERY GOOD REASON TO DOUBT, QUESTION AND SHUN.

-Why aren't the wedding vows not totally steeped in SCRIPTURE?
-Why aren't men made to vow before man and God that they WILL love their wives as Christ love the
  church?  Make them SAY IT.  Not just hear the preacher say it...
-Why is it that the only part of the vows that have scriptural basis is where the woman is supposed to 'obey'
  her husband?  (based loosely on the scripture about submission to husbands)  Why not make the vows so
  that BOTH parties vow to submit to ONE ANOTHER IN THE FEAR OF GOD??

Also, how valid are these marriages when they are 'doomed from the start' because they are officiated over, chanted over, by a bunch of men (and women) who are known pedophiles, adulterers, fornicators, lesbians, and gays?  INSIDE of a church building, to boot!?

It seems to me that the whole concept of 'church weddings' is asking for religious demons to infest the marriage....

Is it any wonder that over HALF the marriages officiated IN THE CHURCH end in divorce?

And now we have same sex marriages.  And everybody wants to get all up in arms about gays and lesbians legally allowed to marry.  But we have to look at this thing: 

If the weddings/marriages between STRAIGHT FOLK who have these religious ceremonies within these religious institutions, officiated by a bunch of freaks don't last, and marriages between STRAIGHT FOLK is in such disarray, how can we honestly bash same sex marriages when different sex marriages have become a joke to so many????

Now please understand:  I am staunchly against same sex marriages.  Yall know my testimony. 

But to try to IN-validate or make void - same sex marriages by using the 'examples' of different sex marriages is kind of ...well, FOOLISH!

See my article, First Gentlemen, First Ladies, And Other Foolishness In The Church

Think about it...the whole concept of having a wedding ceremony - IN A CHURCH - of having ceremonies period...is steeped in religiosity and lunacy!

Again, I wholeheartedly believe in the concept of marriage.  I think that marriage is a beautiful thing. 

I just think the whole religious posturing of it needs to be TOTALLY revamped. 

I don't think that another preacher or priest should officiate over another wedding!  REAL TALK!

Them jiggers are cursed from the get go...HOW CAN THEY POSSIBLY BLESS YOUR UNION IF THEY DOING ALL THE DIRT THEY ARE DOING ANYWAYS?

Then...you have to realize that the institution of CHURCH is a cursed institution.  It is currently under JUDGMENT. 

I don't know about you, but I don't want no cursed folks within a cursed institution to officiate over NOTHING concerning MY life.

Article written by: Just some things to ponder.....

JESUS COMMANDS US TO JUDGE RIGHTEOUSLY



It's much easier for the (wicked) heart of man to judge unrighteously than to judge righteously. Count how many times a day you judge others unrighteously. An obese person, a drunk person, a homeless person, an ugly person, a beautiful person, a sad or angry or happy person.. Now how many times a day do you judge righteously? You see a man abusing his wife in a restaurant with verbal abuse, do you turn the other way and go about your business or do you confront? You see a manager treating an employee with unnecessary harshness, do you confront with love or do you walk away? You see a dog locked in a hot car in the parking lot, do you call the cops or walk away hoping the dog won't die of heat exhaustion. Righteous judgement could save a life. Righteous judgement and rebuke IS love and could convict someone to repentance.  Unrighteous judgement doesn't confront but often times gossips slanders and is out to destroy another's reputation for selfish gain. Knowing right from wrong and confronting injustice is a fruit of the Spirit and shows maturity in Spiritual growth. Fear of confrontation for fear of harming our OWN reputation is a sign of a selfish immature person either void of the spirit or quenching/grieving the Spirit. Either way it's disgusting and needs to be repented of. These are the kind that allow pedophiles to continue their filthy deeds, rapists to go unpunished, and all other abominations on the increase in our society.

WHY DO SOME COME TO CHRIST AND OTHERS NOT?


Why is it that YOU have chosen Christ and your neighbor or family member has not? Why did YOU say yes to grace while they said no? Was it because you were more righteous or more humble than they were? If so, then indeed you have something in which to boast. Was that greater righteousness something YOU achieved on your own or was it the gift of God? If it was something you achieved, then your salvation depends on your own righteousness. If the righteousness was a gift, then why didn't God give the same gift to everybody??? Revelation 21:8, Revelation 21:27, 1 Corinthians 6:9 

THOSE WHOM JESUS SAVES ARE FOREVER SAVED


For those who claim one can lose his salvation is to call God an incompetent unstable liar. Scripture makes it very clear to those with ears to hear and eyes to see that not ONE of those the Father draws will be lost snatched or forsaken from His mighty hand. God also makes it clear that those whom He calls and draws He radically sanctifies and consecrates by the refining fires of affliction to produce a peculiar people not of this world. A people who compared to their love for Jesus Christ have a (holy) hatred for things of the world. Even children parents friends and self interests. Christ becomes their life line, their all in all, the One whom they cling to without a doubt of their newfound adoption into God's Kingdom family. Those who think they (or someone else) did something to bring salvation upon themselves while living a life void of the radical change the new birth brings can not claim the security of eternal salvation. The teaching that man can choose God whenever he's ready has created the OSAS heresy which really isn't heresy. Once we know salvation is of the Lord, and Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith, and we see the evidence of the Father's refining fire in our hearts and lives we can rest in the joy of the Lord forever! Only a bastard child (satan's child) or an adulterous whore (unrepentant) is void of the radical life change the refiners fire brings.




Psalm 66:10
For you, God, tested us; you refined us like silver.

Proverbs 17:3
The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but the LORD tests the heart.

Proverbs 25:4
Remove the dross from the silver, and a silversmith can produce a vessel;

Isaiah 1:25
I will turn my hand against you; I will thoroughly purge away your dross and remove all your impurities.

Jeremiah 9:7
Therefore this is what the LORD Almighty says: "See, I will refine and test them, for what else can I do because of the sin of my people?

Ezekiel 20:38
I will purge you of those who revolt and rebel against me. Although I will bring them out of the land where they are living, yet they will not enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the LORD.

Daniel 11:35
Some of the wise will stumble, so that they may be refined, purified and made spotless until the time of the end, for it will still come at the appointed time.

Daniel 12:10
Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.

Zechariah 13:9
This third I will put into the fire; I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. They will call on my name and I will answer them; I will say, 'They are my people,' and they will say, 'The LORD is our God.'"



See, I have refined you, though not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction.

"I have made you a tester of metals and my people the ore, that you may observe and test their ways.


He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver. Then the LORD will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness,

IF YOUR EYE IS BAD YOUR WHOLE BODY WILL BE FULL OF DARKNESS MATTHEW 6:22




What you fill your eyes (mind) with directs your desires. Sin becomes a thought before we act upon it. Sadly, wicked images are all around us! Hellevision, the malls (victoria's secret), grocery store smut magazines, even in the schools systems; young girls are sent out of their homes dressed like harlots. THIS is why we must rely fully on the power of the Holy Spirit to direct our thoughts and our will according to His…this is the difference between a child of God and one of satan. One will give every thought captive to his holy Master and the other will cling to his thoughts thinking he can hide from God with no intention or interest in being holy as God is holy.

QUESTIONS THAT MUST NOT BE IGNORED


If God didn't want anyone to perish then why did He arrange for Judas to be possessed by satan and die without repentance? If God wanted all men to obey Him why did He harden Pharaohs heart? If God loved Jacob before he was born and hated Esau before he was born then why is it different for you and me? If God says He chooses us we don't choose Him then why do we think we can choose God when we're ready? And why doesn't God choose everyone if He died for and loves everyone? What about the people whom the LORD is FOREVER angry and wrathful towards? Malachi 1:4 These are serious questions that deserve serious answers and to deny them is to deny Christ and His wonderful gospel.

DO YOU WANT THE GOOD NEWS FIRST OR THE BAD NEWS?




Ever hear someone ask you, "Do you want the good news or the bad news?" I believe the gospel is good news only if the bad news is given first. The bad news being because of our deeply imbedded sin nature (thanks to Adam and Eve) we are destined to hell forever shut out of heavens door and NOTHING we do can change that! The GOOD news is that Christ Jesus sacrificed Himself making a doorway for us back to the heavenly Father! Today we have pastors leaving out the BAD news and giving the good news which really isn't all that great when we only know half the truth/news. We have pastors telling people God loves everyone just the way they are and you'll be saved if you just do this or that... Instead of the truth of God's sovereignty and omnipotence. He has all power over all things at all times and in all ways; including the salvation of man. This knowledge should put the fear of God in man's hearts creating the desire to make their election sure instead of what we have today; man thinking he has all the time in the world to repent and will choose God when he feels good and ready. LIE LIE LIE. If you study ALL of scripture you will be amazed at the false jesus spoken of in the world and it's worldly church houses... Almighty God can not be mocked!

APPOINTED FOR GOOD WORKS


When God saves us we are then appointed to work for Him. Our salvation will be evident by our appointed works (which were ordained since before birth). This work does not save but is EVIDENCE of being saved. This work could be for only a few hours such as the thief on the cross; he was ordained and chosen to prove salvation is of the Lord and nothing of man's effort or will. This work could last a lifetime as with John the Baptist. This work never exalts self or promotes an earthly kingdom but Christ and His Kingdom not of this world. However long this work and when it begins and whatever it may look like only God knows…. But to claim to be born again/saved and have no fruitful evidence of a God ordained ministry is mocking Jesus Christ.. If you are saved you are anointed and ordained to works. No works=no anointing and no man void of the Spirit is of God therefore has no rights to claim Jesus as his Savior.
********************************
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.


Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

THE LORD'S WILL PREVAILS MAN'S WILL


To say God desires ALL men to be saved is calling God a helpless distraught liar. If God wanted all men to be saved then all men would be saved. But we know not all men are saved. If God wanted Judas to be saved the end result would have been different as with all others we read about who were ordained for wrath. If you believe God loves all and Christ died for all you worship a different God than I know and read about in Scripture. THIS WILL CAUSE MAN TO WORK OUT HIS SALVATION MAKING SURE OF HIS CALLING AND ELECTION WITH FEAR AND TREMBLING…MORE SO THAN THE FAKE GOSPEL OF MAN CONTROLLING GOD THAT SAYS…."WHENEVER YOU'RE READY ASK JESUS INTO YOUR HEART AND HE WILL COME"

Proverbs 19:21 Many plans are in a man's heart, But the counsel of the LORD will stand. 22What is desirable in a man is his kindness, And it is better to be a poor man than a liar.…

Hebrews 6:17
Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath.

Psalm 33:10
The LORD foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.

Psalm 33:11
But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations.

Proverbs 16:1
To humans belong the plans of the heart, but from the LORD comes the proper answer of the tongue.

Proverbs 16:9
In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps.

Proverbs 19:22
What a person desires is unfailing love; better to be poor than a liar.

Isaiah 14:26
This is the plan determined for the whole world; this is the hand stretched out over all nations.

Isaiah 14:27
For the LORD Almighty has purposed, and who can thwart him? His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?

Isaiah 46:10
I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, 'My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.'

Jeremiah 44:29

"'This will be the sign to you that I will punish you in this place,' declares the LORD, 'so that you will know that my threats of harm against you will surely stand.'

HE WHO JUSTIFIES THE WICKED PROVERBS 17:15


If you think Jesus Christ is pleased with you because you are working at "keeping peace with all men" by justifying the wicked you are a fool. We can't hold hands with God while walking with the devil. An example would be a family member who found out their sibling was sexually abused by their parent and continued contact with the UNREPENTANT abuser for fear of making waves and upsetting anyone. Or a mother who continues to sit under an UNREPENTANT preacher guilty of child molestation. This is justifying the wicked which is as much an ABOMINATION to the Lord as homosexuality. The more God opens my eyes to scripture the more I see how much different the god that the "religious crowd" worships is from the true God written of in the bible. God can not be mocked!

The wicked band together against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death.

It is not good to be partial to the wicked and so deprive the innocent of justice.

Whoever says to the guilty, "You are innocent," will be cursed by peoples and denounced by nations.

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.

who acquit the guilty for a bribe, but deny justice to the innocent.

WICKED JEWISH INFANT ORAL SEX RITUAL






Faceboook blocked me for 72 hours because of this post. NO these are not catholics they are JEWISH. This is satanic perversion and anyone who turns a blind eye to it or condones this wicked religion of judaism are partakers in their evil doings according to scripture. Jesus says to EXPOSE evil and if they refuse to repent SHUN them. Jesus doesn't say to kill them or burn down their villages but they are to be accursed! There is no scripture that says we are to pray for these unrepentant perverted satanists or bless them in anyway! Yet, I see a gross amount of "believers" worshiping supporting and standing with the Jews because they believe they are God's "chosen" people. This goes 100 % against scripture! This proves the great falling away is here and now and will only continue to get worse and those who stand with satans counterfeit israel are embracing and worshiping the antichrist spirit therefore have been blinded to the truth and unless you repent and seek Truth/Jesus you will burn in hell right along with this satanic cult and their perverted satanic worshippers.

The link here explains how babies are dying from herpes contracted by the Rabbi Priests who give oral sex to the infant after circumcision..What are these foolish mothers thinking??

There is no scripture that forbids us to expose evildoers and their wicked perversions. Many say "Shut up and Let God deal with them!" Well….God WILL deal with them but Jesus says to expose them. Jesus never says to shut up about evil doers and ignore the oppressed they manipulate and humiliate. Jesus says to give a VOICE to the oppressed and afflicted! Only satan and his weak lukewarm minions want to allow darkness to stay hidden and run from the light! 

Proverbs 1:10
My son, if sinful men entice you, do not give in to them.

Proverbs 28:4
Those who forsake instruction praise the wicked, but those who heed it resist them.

John 3:20
Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed.

Acts 26:18
to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.'

Romans 13:12
The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.

1 Corinthians 5:9
I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people--

2 Corinthians 6:14
Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?

Ephesians 5:12
It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret.

Colossians 1:12
and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.

1 Timothy 5:20
But those elders who are sinning you are to reprove before everyone, so that the others may take warning.

1 Timothy 5:22
Do not be hasty in the laying on of hands, and do not share in the sins of others. Keep yourself pure.

2 John 1:11
Anyone who welcomes them shares in their wicked work.




God is referring to those who claim His name yet remain unrepentant. In other words the hypocrites. There is no scripture that says we are to pray for and defend the unrepentant name claimer but instead shun them and leave them in God's hands until they repent
1 John 5:16
If you see any brother or sister commit a sin that does not lead to death, you should pray and God will give them life. I refer to those whose sin does not lead to death. There is a sin that leads to death. I am not saying that you should pray about that.

Exodus 32:10
Now leave me alone so that my anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them. Then I will make you into a great nation."

Psalm 66:18
If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened;

Jeremiah 7:16
"So do not pray for this people nor offer any plea or petition for them; do not plead with me, for I will not listen to you.

Jeremiah 11:11
Therefore this is what the LORD says: 'I will bring on them a disaster they cannot escape. Although they cry out to me, I will not listen to them.

Jeremiah 14:11
Then the LORD said to me, "Do not pray for the well-being of this people.

Hosea 5:6
When they go with their flocks and herds to seek the LORD, they will not find him; he has withdrawn himself from them.

Zechariah 7:13
"'When I called, they did not listen; so when they called, I would not listen,' says the LORD Almighty.

Malachi 2:13
Another thing you do: You flood the LORD's altar with tears. You weep and wail because he no longer looks with favor on your offerings or accepts them with pleasure from your hands..

Therefore pray not you for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear them in the time that they cry to me for their trouble.

Matthew 18:15  Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.


17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.

CHRIST DELIVERS US FROM EVIL!



If you still enjoy sin then you need to question your salvation and to whom you belong. A child of God will not partake in hidden sin with pleasure but will hate it. A child of the devil will look forward with delight to indulge in hidden sin while refusing to bring it to light for Almighty God to destroy!


THE GOSPEL IS OFFENSIVE!! TO THE FLESH!! The TRUE gospel is a hammer that breaks man to pieces... then a fire that softens/molds into an approved vessel for the Potters glory. The devils gospel however builds up the flesh and appeases the conscience of man so he can stay married to and in love with the world. We can't understand the good news until we understand the bad news! Romans 7:18

THE GOD MAN CREATED



There is a false gospel and jesus being preached that man has created to please and ease his wicked lying heart. A jesus who tolerates condones and accepts a lifestyle of unrepentant sin. A jesus who was well loved by many and partied with sinners without asking repentance of them. A jesus who was beautiful to the eyes who most would swoon after with lust. A jesus who promises a life of prosperity wealth comforts and ease and freedom from suffering tribulations hatred and mockery even from loved ones. A jesus who allows those He died for to live for themselves instead of strictly for God. A jesus who expects his followers to never stand up and speak out against evil sin and injustice but to remain silent offending no one especially loved ones. A jesus who loves all people and hates no one. A jesus who doesn't ask us to be holy as He is holy. A jesus who would never say we must die to self and live for Him, forsaking and hating all others compared to our love and devotion for Him. Even our own children. A jesus who says we must keep praying for those who profess His name yet live a lifestyle of sin. A jesus who says we are ok the way we are and don't need to become born again, we don't need to come out of the ways of the world becoming an outcast and stranger to it's paganistic traditions holidays and religions of man. A jesus who doesn't hate christmas and demand we stop putting his name on this wicked abomination. A jesus who doesn't demand us to come out of the fake churches led by fake shepherds. A jesus who says we can come to Him with repentance whenever we feel ready and on our own terms. A jesus who would never say we can't choose Him but He must choose us because there is nothing good in us but a wicked rebellious heart that hates God and His holy righteous ways. A jesus who would never say there is no good man but God and all works done in the flesh are a filthy stench in His nostrils fit for hell. A jesus who accepts wars and gives honor to Americas military men who risked their lives for their country instead of risking their lives for Him and His righteousness. A jesus who favors the jews over all others while accepting and blessing the injustices being done to arab and muslim men women and children. The only way to know the REAL and TRUE JESUS CHRIST is when He reveals Himself from within us. The Jesus written of in scripture is very much different than the jesus the world knows and loves…COME OUT AND WAKE UP!

JESUS WAS A MAN OF SORROWS


The Lord God, Jesus Christ, was a man of great sorrows. He was despised and rejected by many who looked down upon Him as an enemy of God.  Jesus was poor and homeless during His ministry and not pleasing to the eyes of man. He was called the devil and rejected by His own. Although followed and sought after by many for what He could give them, it was rarely just to know and love Him.  Many turned away from Jesus when counting the cost and saw that too much was at stake… Jesus didn't determine His family members by blood but by those who did the will of His Father. Jesus taught man can do nothing on his own strength and will to redeem himself and proved it by promising paradise to the dying thief on the cross beside Him. It is Christ who chooses His kingdom heirs; never man. Jesus was not a hippy fair skinned man of beauty, popularity and earthly wealth men have created and He warns of great woe upon those who profess to be God's servants yet loved followed and adored by the world. Jesus never condoned a worldly lifestyle of unrepentant sin and said we are none of His if we love the world and it's lusts. In fact, Jesus said "the world hates Me for judging their deeds as evil!" Today, John the Baptist would be labeled legalistic unloving divisive and prideful but Jesus said there was none greater than John!  Jesus said to be wary when men speak well of a prophet and that all God's children should expect scorn mockery and hatred from the world and even their own family members but to rejoice and be glad for our reward in heaven is great! It was through Jesus' sufferings humiliation and ultimately His murder that gained Him the crown of victory giving Him dominion and authority over ALL things. Jesus said to take HIS yoke and to follow HIM. Anyone who sees Jesus yoke as burdensome is still an enemy to God, walking not in the Spirit but the flesh, and needs to REPENT.

THE GOSPEL OF SATAN


The gospel of satan does not promote strife and war, but aims at peace and unity. It seeks not to set the mother against her daughter nor the father against his son, but fosters the fraternal, spirit whereby the human race is regarded as one great “brotherhood”. It does not seek to drag down the natural man, but to improve and uplift him. It advocates education and cultivation and appeals to “the best that is within us”.
It aims to make this world such a congenial and comfortable habitat that Christ’s absence from it will not be felt and God will not be needed. It endeavors to occupy man so much with this world that he has no time or inclination to think of the world to come. It propagates the principles of self-sacrifice, charity and benevolence, and teaches us to live for the good of others, and to be kind to all. It appeals strongly to the carnal mind and is popular with the masses, because it ignores the solemn facts that BY NATURE MAN IS A FALLEN CREATURE, ALIENATED FROM THE LIFE OF GOD, AND DEAD IN TRESPASSES AND SINS, AND THAT HIS ONLY HOPE LIES IN BEING BORN AGAIN.
In contradistinction to the Gospel of Christ, the gospel of Satan teaches salvation BY WORKS. It inculcates justification before God on the ground of human merits. Its sacramental phrase is “Be good and do good”; but it fails to recognize that in the flesh there dwelleth no good thing. It announces salvation by character, which reverses the order of God’s Word—character by, as the fruit of, salvation. Its various ramifications and organizations are manifold.

Temperance, Reform movements, “Christian Socialist Leagues”, ethical culture societies, “Peace Congresses” are all employed (perhaps unconsciously) in proclaiming this gospel of Satan—salvation by works. The pledge-card is substituted for Christ; social purity for individual regeneration, and politics and philosophy for doctrine and godliness. The cultivation of the old man is considered more practical” than the creation of a new man in Christ Jesus; whilst universal peace is looked for apart from the interposition and return of the Prince of Peace.“[A.W. Pink].


Millions are deceived into supposing that they have been saved simply by "believing" and “accepted Christ” as their “personal Saviour”, who have not first received Him as their LORD. But Christ said, “Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3). To “repent” is to hate sin, to sorrow over, to turn from it. It is the result of the Spirit’s making the heart contrite before God. None except a broken heart can savingly believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.

THE SON OF GOD DID NOT COME HERE TO SAVE PEOPLE IN THEIR SINS, BUT “FROM THEIR SINS” (Matthew 1:21).

To be saved from sins, is to be saved from ignoring and despising the authority of God, it is to abandon the course of self-will and self-pleasing, it is to “forsake OUR way” (Isa. 55:7). It is to surrender to GOD’S authority, to yield to HIS dominion, to give ourselves over to be ruled by Him.

THE ONE WHO HAS NEVER TAKEN CHRIST’S “YOKE” UPON HIM, WHO IS NOT TRULY AND DILIGENTLY SEEKING TO PLEASE HIM IN ALL THE DETAILS OF HIS LIFE, AND YET SUPPOSES THAT HE IS “RESTING ON THE FINISHED WORK OF CHRIST” IS DELUDED BY THE DEVIL.

In the seventh chapter of Matthew there are two scriptures which give us approximate results of Christ’s Gospel and Satan’s counterfeit. First, in verses 13 and 14, “Enter ye in at the strait gate. For, wide is the gate and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction and many there be which go in thereat. Because strait is the gate and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life and few there be that find it.” Second, in verses 22 and 23, “Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesized (preached) in Thy name? And in Thy name have cast out demons, and in Thy name have done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you, depart from Me, ye that work iniquity.”

Yes, my reader, it is possible to work in the name of Christ, and even to preach in His name, and though the world knows us, and the Church knows us, yet to BE UNKNOWN TO THE LORD! How necessary it is then to find out where we really are; to EXAMINE OURSELVES to see whether we be in the faith; to measure ourselves by the Word of God and see if we are being deceived by our subtle Enemy; to find out whether we are building our house upon the sand, or whether it is erected on the Rock which is Christ Jesus. May the Holy Spirit search our hearts, break our wills, slay our enmity against God, work in us a deep and true repentance, and direct our gaze to the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world.
A.W. Pink


WE ARE SLAVES TO WHATEVER CONTROLS US


A true sign of being born again is the desire to change old habits. The Holy Spirit will give us extreme hatred for the things that used to give us pleasure. What once was our best friend and comforter becomes that thing we hate to love and Jesus becomes our friend and comforter. I am living proof, as many others, that Jesus CAN heal and break free the chains of addiction if we truly surrender it over to Him. What's really sickening to see are those who profess Jesus as their Lord and Savior yet willingly and gladly STILL partake in their addictions without the desire to be delivered from them. These people are hypocrites and liars and are mocking the name of Jesus Christ!! and unless they repent will be judged harshly and eternally. God is holy and commands that WE be holy and that is only possible through complete and utter surrender to Christ Jesus to have His way with our pet sin whatever it may be. We all have one and sometimes its less noticeable... like gossip lying and idolatry (consumed with "things" instead of Jesus)  Surrender = freedom which to those who are perishing sounds foolish..



WE ARE SLAVES TO WHATEVER/WHOMEVER CONTROLS US
Romans 6:22
But now that you have been set free from sin and have become SLAVES OF GOD, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.
1 Peter 2:16
Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as GOD'S SLAVES.

JESUS CHRIST DIVIDES FAMILIES!


JESUS CHRIST DIVIDES FAMILIES! 

Michael Jeshurun

"But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, EVEN SO IT IS NOW!" [Galatians 4:29]

"The gospel of Satan is not a system of revolutionary principles, nor yet a program of anarchy. It does not promote strife and war, but aims at peace and unity. It seeks not to set the mother against her daughter nor the father against his son, but fosters the fraternal spirit whereby the human race is regarded as one great 'brotherhood' “[A.W. Pink].

The Gospel of Jesus Christ divides families! No honest Christian or student of the Bible will deny this. One of the very first acts of God recorded in the Scriptures is – “And God DIVIDED the light from the darkness”! [Gen 1:4]. The Master Himself affirmed on many occasions, “Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather DIVISION”! [Lk 12:51]. Again, “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I CAME NOT TO SEND PEACE, BUT A SWORD”! 

And WHERE does Jesus word bring division? The very next verse tells us "For from henceforth there shall be five in ONE HOUSE divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law [Lk 12:51-53]. Note the words ‘FROM HENCEFORTH’ which means from the time the Lord began His ministry even until He comes again, the preaching of the truth WILL continue to divide families! The Lord said emphatically that this was one of the reasons why He came. 

When He sent out His twelve apostles to preach, He cautioned them beforehand saying the same words: "Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I CAME NOT TO SEND PEACE, but a sword. For I AM COME TO set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me" [Mt. 10:34-37].

How come we hardly hear any sermons on the above verses? When was the last time you heard a preacher tell you that Jesus Christ divides families? Beloved, this fact that Christ divides families is not an EXCEPTION, but the RULE. 

The Lord said, He came to seek and to save His lost sheep, and His sheep are scattered in ‘families’ both Christian and non-Christian. So when the Lord calls out His sheep out of these families the division is INEVITABLE. Remember? "A man’s foes shall be they of his own household" [Matt. 10:36]. The ‘MAN’ in this passage is the LORD’S SHEEP whom He has chosen to save as opposed to the REST of his family whom he hath CHOSEN NOT TO SAVE. He says "five in one house shall be divided, three against two, and two against three." At times the Lord may choose to save two or even three in a family of five, BUT NOWHERE IN THE SCRIPTURE DOES THE LORD PROMISE TO SAVE THE WHOLE FAMILY! 

Was it not so from the beginning? Adam had two sons – Cain and Abel. God loved Abel, but Cain was of the wicked one [1John 3:12]. Noah found grace in God’s eyes and was therefore saved. But were all of Noah’s family ‘children of God’? No! Ham the younger son of Noah proved to be wicked! [Gen 9:22-24]. The same with the sons of Issac, one was loved of God the other was hated. “Was not Esau Jacob’s brother? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob, and I hated Esau’! [Mal 1:2,3]

The point being this: God has no grandchildren! Only Children! Preachers who Baptize their children assuming that they too are chosen to be saved have not fully understood and grasped the Sovereignty of God in Salvation! Flesh and blood do not inherit the Kingdom of God! A.W. Pink rightly affirms –“the taking place of the new birth is “not of blood,” that is to say, it is not a MATTER OF HEREDITY, for REGENERATION DOES NOT RUN IN THE VEINS”! 

You cannot contend that God wants the whole family saved and yet do justice to the Lord’s words which emphatically teach that the Gospel divides families. He says, "And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child; and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated by all men for My name’s sake; but he that endureth till the end shall be saved [Matt 10:21,22]. 

One of the reasons that we have not seen the true colors of our ‘loved ones’ is because we have not been persecuted and hunted down like many of the early Christians. Persecution always separates the goats from the sheep! 

I AM A TRULY BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN. WHY IS THEIR NO DIVISION IN MY FAMILY?

Jesus Christ is the SAME yesterday, today and forever! [Heb13:8]. The Lord has not changed and neither will the effects caused by His words ever change! In his letter to the Galatians, the Apostle affirms, “But as THEN he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, EVEN SO IT IS NOW”! [Gal 4:29]. 

The Christian is one who is born after the Spirit. And almost every ‘born-again’ child of God when he initially becomes a Christian has testified of the hatred that he felt from his family and loved ones. He is then glad to relate to his Master’s Words, “The servant is not greater than his Lord. If they have persecuted ME, they WILL also persecute YOU” [John 15:20].

This persecution and hatred is only experienced by those who are making every effort to live like their Master! But if we are unfaithful by HIDING OUR LIGHT UNDER A BUSHEL and are compromising the truth by attempting to serve TWO MASTERS then we can successfully escape “the reproach of Christ”! He was hated by the world and has called us to fellowship with His sufferings. And it is only, “All those who LIVE GODLY IN CHRIST JESUS who suffer persecution! [2Tim 3;12]. 

I as a Christian have to constantly ask myself – “has my gold become dim and my silver turned to dross”? “Is the light that is in me, now darkness, and has my salt lost its savour”? To lose our zeal and first love for Christ is no small thing! It is the same as being ashamed of Him and forsaking him for a ‘mess of pottage’ like Esau. It is something to be repented of! 

Of the saints at Rome Paul could say “your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world” [Romans 1:8], while to the Galatians he complained “ye did run well, who did hinder you?” (Galatians 5:7). To the Thessalonians he could say “Your faith groweth exceedingly” [2 Thessalonians 1:3], but of the Ephesians it is recorded “thou hast left thy first love” [Revelation 2:4].

The Master said that if you DENY Him before men, HE will deny you before His father and His angels. To deny Christ is to compromise and not speak out against the evil in your own house but be a partaker or a silent spectator! 

Time was when you said with David, “I will walk within my house with a perfect heart. I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me. I have not sat with vain persons, I WILL NOT sit with the wicked’! [Psa 101:2,3; 26:4,5]. But now you are pretty comfortable sitting with your ‘family’ and watching Ophrah Winfrey deny your Lord (who shed His blood for you), your favorite ‘Actor’ kissing and fondling another man’s wife, or watching some horror movie in which some maniac is ripping out somebody’s guts! None of this bothers you anymore! Your conscience is seared with a hot iron! [1Tim 4:1]

Time was when you renounced your father’s Roman Catholicism and preached against it at every given opportunity! But now you are quite comfortable sitting in their ‘prayer meetings’ and celebrating their pagan festivals, like Christmas and Easter! 

Time was when you told your son or daughter to stop playing the Devil’s music in your house or leave! But now you’ve learnt to live with it and even give them money to buy their Rock music records and Harry Potter books!

You have now become ‘wise’ and have realized that if you continue to take a zealous stand for the Lord, you might wind up losing your loved ones. So you have learnt to live with it. You know in your heart that to take a stand for all that Scripture demands of you would mean to lose your loved one. And that is a hard saying for you. You WANT to be Christ’s disciple but are not willing to pay the PRICE. ‘From that time many of his DISCIPLES went back, and walked no more with Him’. [Jn 6:66] Are you one of them? Am I one of them?

Let me close by saying, a disciple is one who continues with Christ, taking a stand for Him at the cost of everything and everyone he holds dear. Where the rubber meets the road the true disciple of Christ is even willing to hate his ‘loved ones’ in comparison to His Lord who bled and died for him!


And there went great multitudes with Him: and He turned, and said unto them, If any man come to Me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple! [Luke 14:25, 26]

FLATTERY = MANIPULATION


The flesh/man loves flattery but the Spirit/Christ HATES it. Flattery is fake, it fluffs up the inner man. Jesus rebuked a man for flattering Him by saying there is none good but GOD. Luke 18:19 Praises and applauses of men is disgusting to God. Before the Lord quickened me I loved flattery, especially from men but it meant more coming from women because I thought they spoke in truth without wanting something. But according to God ALL flattery is wicked fake and self seeking. This is deep and something the Holy Spirit has been magnifying to me daily. I see it EVERYWHERE not just on facebook and google. The old man is always craving to be exalted justified glorified praised and given credit. But Jesus says the old man must die. Jesus says to deny and crucify the flesh and serve the Christ (the Spirit).. Flattery does not = encouragement comfort love and support. Flattery = manipulation to get something from another whether it's a return of flattery from the other person, sex, money, love, adoration, ownership, control, acceptance, career advancement, and other worldly ill gotten gains. God has also been convicting me and showing me that we all fall short in many ways and the closer we walk with Him the more magnified these things become but because God is a loving Father He promises to give us the strength and ability to deal with them one step at a time while conforming us to the image of his Son! Now THAT is something to shout praises about!

NOT ONE DROP OF JESUS CHRIST'S BLOOD IS WASTED OR REJECTED


YE HAVE NOT CHOSEN ME, BUT I HAVE CHOSEN YOU”! [John 15:16]
By: Michael Jeshurun

It is so sad to watch people start their Christian testimony with the words – “I was searching for the truth. I was seeking for God in all the wrong places and then one day . . .”
Fact is no fallen child of Adam ‘SEEKS FOR GOD OR THE TRUTH”! Period! God is his sworn enemy and the ‘truth’ is something which he was born hating! So why would he seek for either?!
THERE IS NONE THAT SEEKETH AFTER GOD! THEY ARE ALL GONE OUT OF THE WAY! [Rom 3:11,12]

But here is the amazing thing – “Blessed is the man whom THOU CHOOSEST, and CAUSEST to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in Thy courts”! [Psa 65:4]
Watch carefully, that God not only ‘CHOOSES’ but ‘CAUSES’ the one chosen ‘TO APPROACH’ Him. In other words, or in the words of our Lord “DRAGS HIM’ to Himself!

“No man can come to Me, except the Father which hath sent Me DRAW him”! [John 6:44] The word ‘DRAW’ in the Greek literally means to DRAG! Its first occurrence is here in John 6:44. Here it is the power of God overcoming the enmity of the carnal mind. It occurs again in John 18:10 -
“Then Simon Peter having a sword DREW it, and smote the high priest’s servant.”
Here the term signifies that Peter laid FIRM HOLD of his sword and PULLED IT OUT of its sheath. It is found again in John 21:6, 11, “Simon Peter went up and DREW the net to land full of great fishes.” Here it signifies the putting forth of strength so as to DRAG AN INANIMATE AND HEAVY OBJECT. It is used (in a slightly different form) in James 2:6, “Do not rich men oppress you and DRAW YOU before the judgment seats?” Here it has reference to the IMPELLING OF UNWILLING subjects.

Hence from its usage in the New Testament we are therefore obliged to understand that fallen man if he is to ‘come to God’ at all, he MUST BE DRAWN OR DRAGGED BY THE POWER OF OMNIPOTENCE! In raising the sinner from spiritual death to eternal life God employs the same power which He put forth in raising Christ from the dead! [Eph 2:4-6]
This is why when the apostles exclaimed – “WHO then can be saved”? The Lord replied – “With MEN IT IS IMPOSSIBLE, but not with God: for WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE”! [Mark 10:27] Hallelujah!

But it is a known fact that God the Father does not draw EVERYONE to Christ! WHY?!
BECAUSE HE DOES NOT LOVE EVERYONE!
The love of the father is a DISCRIMINATIVE love! It CHOOSES whom to love and whom to hate. “Jacob have I loved, Esau have I hated”! [Rom 9:13]
In the same line He chooses on whom He will have mercy and whom He will harden! [Rom 9:18]
If God was dealing with a bunch of ‘INNOCENT’ men and women this would seem unjust! But God is dealing with a fallen bunch of God haters who are His enemies (Rom 5:10), and if there is anything He owes them it is HELL!

So out of this ‘Hell-Deserving’ bunch or ‘lump’ He chooses to display His UNCONDITIONAL MERCY on some and the rest He ordains to eternal damnation which they rightly deserve!
These are the facts! You’ve got to put it in your pipe and smoke it whether you like it or not!
If the Father was choosing everyone and drawing everyone as some suppose, then, scriptures like these make no sense – 
“Blessed is the man whom Thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in Thy courts”! [Psa 65:4]
Notice that these few whom the Father loves, He not only ‘CHOOSES’, but ‘CAUSES’ to approach unto Him!
Fallen man is so depraved that just ‘choosing him’ is not going to save him!! God must ‘CAUSE’ him to approach! 
In other words, the Father must not only choose or elect those whom He loves, but He must DRAW them to Christ!
And He does not draw ALL, because He has not chosen ALL. And He has not chosen ALL, because He has not loved ALL!
I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, “Wherein hast Thou loved us”? Was not Esau Jacob’s BROTHER? saith the LORD: YET I LOVED JACOB, AND I HATED ESAU, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness”! [Malachi 1:2,3]

HOW do I know that God loves ME and that I am one of His elect?
Why, I look around me and see so many of my own family who are morally better off than me, who are either lost in unbelief or in a false religion, and that God has loved me and DRAWN ME to Himself and taught me truths which ‘angels desire to look into’ [1Pet 1:12], by this I KNOW I am one of His elect!

“The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: THEREFORE with loving kindness have I DRAWN THEE”! [Jer 31:3] Hallelujah! 

CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE IS NOT JUST PHYSICAL!


Sexual child abuse doesn't always involve physical touching. Exhibitionism is a form of sexual abuse as is speaking inappropriately to a child in a sexual manner. My step father hated children and when he married my mother when I was 6 he hated me with a passion. It wasn't until I turned 13 his attitude towards me changed. He became overly friendly which of course confused me but it wasn't long before I realized his ill intentions. My step father offered to pay me money if he could take pictures of me naked to share among his friends, which I refused with great embarrassment. When I would be laying by the pool he would come over and lift my bathing suit top so he could see my breast. Although my mother was within ear shot I was too afraid to say anything but instead pushed his hand away. One evening he pulled his pants down to expose himself to me and instead of screaming for my mother who was in the next room I turned away in disgust fear and embarrassment. Today, knowing what I know now I would have been much bolder in my reactions to these perverted actions of his and called it what it was. Sexual child abuse! When I finally confronted my mother and he eventually admitted the truth she told me to never speak of it again; since she had no job to support us therefore had no choice but to stay married to him. Life was a living hell once I called him out and I hated him for years even thinking of ways I could have him killed without being caught. Its only by the grace of God I am what I am today. I have forgiven but I will never reconcile with my step father and mother who still live in denial and blame. I no longer have hatred towards them but a new found love and boldness for the truth and hatred for lies denial and darkness. God allows ALL things for His glory and I'm hear to say God can and will heal a repentant heart bringing the gift of forgiveness and the release of bitterness guilt shame and hate. Religion says to keep quiet in the face of evil. But my Lord Jesus says to expose them and call them to repent. Jesus NEVER says to condone or tolerate wicked unrepentant behavior even if it's family. Jesus tells me to always speak the truth in love because only hate will allow evil to reign and remain without rebuke. True love wants what's best for all involved and unless one repents and lives a life serving Christ he is forever condemned to hell. Don't let the devil shut you up..

NO PERSECUTION = NO CHILD OF GOD


A true christian has a new heart with new affections. They love Jesus Christ their Master. Holiness is sought after not burdensome. Righteousness is sweet not bitter. The heart that has been changed by God will hate this world compared to God. Those who love this world are adulterers to God, enemies of God, and hate God. They don't want Him. They want the world and it's things.  If you are not suffering persecution for your new walk and love for God you are of the world and a stranger to God. The new birth is evident by a drastic change! Be prepared to be called a WACKO and REJECTED especially by your friends family and loved ones. Jesus said a prophet will not be welcome by his own but REJECTED. Only the false prophets are well loved popular and accepted of many. The religious folks will be the worse mockers and haters against true born again christians just as the religious folks were in Jesus day. 

DO NOT ALLOW SIN TO DOMINATE YOU! ROMANS 6:12





Do we ask this of God with a sincere heart? Do we ask God to direct our steps (steps/sins start in the mind/heart before we step/act into sin) Trying on our own strength to overcome a sin that controls us will always end in failure. But giving Jesus control of our mind and heart anything is possible! Even that besetting sin that controls and dominates us. Scripture makes it clear we are no longer to allow sin to dominate us so why do so many fail to believe we are to be OVERCOMERS of sin instead of letting sin overcome us? Lust is the heaviest and most common sin to battle. To an unregenerate unsaved person this is not a battle or struggle but to a saved born again child of God it is. This doesn't mean sex is a bad thing at all! But sex is never meant to be done alone. Sex is never meant to harm another. Sex is meant to be shared by a husband and wife emotionally spiritually and physically. Sadly most people use sex as another form of worshiping/pleasing SELF instead of what God created it to be and this is why we have a world full of perversion using what was meant to be a gift as a weapon of mass destruction. If this sounds boring, miserable, legalistic, and impossible, then you are living in the flesh not in the Spirit. Which means you are still under the law and not under grace. This isn't about sinless perfection this is about what Jesus did and what HE PROMISED to do in the heart of man. WE are the temple of God and He will not allow it to be unholy or defiled without severe chastising and consequences. If you are coddling a pet sin you are dominated by sin and are not eternally secure in Christ. May God have mercy on your soul!
