Many people have started false churches in the name of God. Carnal church has created a form of entertainment that attracts carnally-minded people .Too many churches have become nothing more than social clubs, entertainment centers, activity centers of sports like Golf, etc and gossip forums. Many of the church worship services are nothing more than rock concert and have become a business for many people. Some churches even require speaking in tongues as evidence of salvation. When the Bible speaks of “tongues,” is always referring to a known earthly language never some mysterious, unknown, ununderstandable language without an of an interpreter.
God wanted to reach the world with Godliness but today’s churches are filled with greedy wealthy carnal preachers who reach the people to lure young people to come to church with worldliness by tampering with the Word of God by strengthening the hands of evildoers, they justify their disobedience to the Word of God by twisting the Scriptures to justify their lifestyle. They preach the doctrine of devils by preaching the false gospel. “In Jeremiah 23:14 Says But now I see that the prophets of Jerusalem are even worse! They commit adultery and love dishonesty. They encourage those who are doing evil so that no one turns away from their sins. These prophets are as wicked as the people of Sodom and Gomorrah once were.” They keep one foot in Gods word and another foot in devils world. They enjoy everything in the world like heathens yet they say they are Christians? These are the false teachers who are carnal in nature who have come into the churches with their books, music, literature, movies, psychology, and seminars, and have turned the Father’s house into a den of thieves. Some of the preachers even defend such false preachers and pastors because they themselves are living in rebellion or wickedness, and they want the people to join them in their rebellion and wickedness.
Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s Table, and of the table of devils.1 Corinthians 10:21
Anyone who claims as a Christian yet follows world ways are not a true Christian Because 1st John 2:15 says “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”
These carnal false preachers are living a life of luxurious, driving brand new cars, having big houses making frequent trips to Europe, Hawaii, Holy land etc on vacation in the name of preaching the gospel while most of his church members can barely afford to have a heath insurance or can barely afford to drive to the next town have to finance pastor’s selfish interests in the form of donation or tithing? Philippians 3:18-19, “For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.” Some of them even teach new doctrines about tithing and add a undue financial stress to the church members by pressuring them to give what they don’t have .With lesser paying jobs , property taxes increasing tremendously, health care premiums soaring, and a cost of living increasing to the sky , people being laid off from the jobs . People struggle for existence and survival in this tight economy. The world today is filled with carnal apostles.. “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof…” (2nd Timothy 3:5). Proverb 28:4, “They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contends with them.” The Bible speaks of those that are “double-minded,” and warns that they are “unstable” in all their ways and receive nothing from the Lord (James 1:7, 8).
A true Preacher will be normal person not living wealthy like a carnal false preacher, will tell the people the truth and he stands uncompromisingly against the works of flesh, expose their sins, errors, darkness and works of Satan. Such true preachers are falsely accused of being legalistic, narrow-minded, sinner, teacher of false doctrine, judgmental, self righteous and unloving. The truth they preach with all humility is quite offensive to the people who are living in fleshy desires. Some passages of Scripture seem to forbid judging, while others clearly require it. God hates hypocritical judging. But God loves righteous judgment on the part of His children. Godly people will be ridiculed by their friends and families for their Christian beliefs & teachings. They are accused and described as Paranoids, self righteous, judgmental fanatics, narrow-minded, extreme, ridiculous, “sinners” & as teaching the “doctrine of devils.
But a Carnal false preacher will be silent concerning the sins, wickedness, and legalizing all the evil things which god told not to do it. Some are even afraid to publicly take a stand, suppress the truth and their Gospel message never leaves the comfortable zones of their church walls . God hates lukewarm Christianity (Revelation 3:14-16).
We also know that Jesus hates wickedness in Hebrews 1:9: You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.” His heart is grieved over those who sin and Jesus hates the sin within each one of us. Jesus hated sin so much that He went to the cross to do away with sin. We mustn’t make excuses for our sins nor should we hide our sins (Psalm 32:5) but we should confess our sins to the Father (1 John 1:9) and remain in faith in Jesus who alone can wash our sins away.
I tell you that in the same way, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance. (Luke 15:7) Holy Spirit convicts people of their of sin and righteousness but evil spirit justifies and defends their sin. True Christians are led by the Spirit of God and live a life of holiness but carnal Christians claim to be saved Christians profess godliness but not practicing in actions .They do merely do lip service of repentance. .They partly serve God yet they do not have the fruits of the spirit but have the evidence of works of flesh such as adultery, Fornication, Uncleanness, Lasciviousness, drunkenness, alcohol and drugs, addictions such as smoking, pornography, gambling, sexual perversion, lying cheating , stealing using profane language etc. .Such carnal Christians have no fear of God (Matt 7:21-23) which the Bible says is a sign of an unregenerate mind (Romans 3:18) a rebellious and stiff-necked people prone to sin. They quench the Holy Spirit and listen to the evil spirit and disobey God’s commandments. There are few others who think that by saying formula of sinners prayer will save them without being genuinely repented of their sins. Some false preachers say that you can gladly receive Christ without following Him or without obeying his commandments they strengthen the hands of evildoers, comforting them in their sin rather than calling them to repentance humble themselves to turn from sin. Having a right relationship with God begins with acknowledging your sin. God is love (1 John 4:8), but God also punishes the sinner and hates all who do iniquity. To sin is to break God’s Law and offend His character. Next comes a humble confession of your sin to God (Isaiah 57:15) and a determination to forsake the sin.
True repentance is that we must first acknowledge our sins or wrong doing in our heart and have sincere remorse or regret about one’s wrong doing. Then the Holy Spirit draws us to Jesus Christ by convicting us of sin which produces a life of holiness and righteousness that comes by the power of the Holy Spirit.
As a result of false teachings by carnal preachers who are wolf in sheep’s clothing, deceiving many., have assured people that they have been born-again they do not need to repent of their sins which has made easier for people to sin, or to explain their sin, or to excuse their sin. No truly born again Christian can live their lives in continual, habitual sin. Many of today’s churches have a false conversions, false gospels with contradictions, confusions, divisions, hypocrisy, lukewormness, false repentance which proceeds from momentary emotions and feelings. They confess that there is sin but they fail to acknowledge sins in their lives and are controlled by the sins without any grief or true repentance. People have become stiff necked materialistic and self-willed can’t deal with criticism anymore. They rationalize evil into good and are easily offended, intolerant of the truth when some one preaches against sin or rebukes their sinful lifestyle. Such carnal people say that it’s unloving to tell people that they are sinners. Such people have no genuine faith.
If any one profess to know God, and His Son Jesus Christ. They will be busy in seeking his will in every area of their life not yielding to their personal opinion but for Gods opinion. The Bible commands men to depart from all sin, to keep God’s commandments, to be holy because God is holy, and to be perfect as our Father in heaven is perfect. The Bible teaches that all men ought to live without sin and that they can live without sin by God’s grace and the power of his indwelling Holy Spirit and by the Blood of Jesus Christ. The Bible also teaches that Christians do live without sin and can overcome the world, the flesh, and the devil. We have been commanded by God to live lives of holiness, set apart from the world. Awake to righteousness, and sin not 1 Cor. 15:34
But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.” -1st Timothy 6:10, 11
We remember Jezebel in Thyatira called herself a “prophetess.” she was a false prophet. Her teachings taught that it was all right for Christians to indulge in sexual immorality and in idolatry. Do not be a lukewarm Christian rebuke the sin, judge righteously. One does not need to have lived all his life without sin in order to rebuke others. Jesus knew His disciples had committed sins, yet he still ordered them to rebuke sin (Matthew 18:15, Ephesians 5:11, John 7:24, James 5:19, 20).If we fail to rebuke others when they sin, then we ourselves have committed the sin of disobeying the above verses. We learn that the Bible forbids certain kinds of judgment, but it also requires us to rebuke sin in order to help people please God and be saved. God commands everyone to repent and believe in the true Gospel it is our duty, responsibility to obey. Failure to do so is sin .There are some Preachers quit preaching against sins and some preachers themselves live in sin henceforth allowed sinners to stop feeling like sinners which allowed the sinner to continue to live in sin and justifying their sins hence they hardly repent for their sins.
Christian churches stand guilty before Christ for perverting the Gospel, because they teach the doctrine of Balaam, putting a stumbling block of sin before people, seducing people into sin, deceiving people into believing, even with God’s Spirit, it is still spiritually impossible to live one’s live without breaking God’s commandments, and to teach people they can continue to sin without sin’s consequences, and receiving the judgment of Christ and that Rom. 6:23 does not apply to their sins. Lasciviousness is shameless conduct that breaks God’s Commandments without shame, or repentance, and creates a false obedience of teaching that does not recognize sin, nor defines sin as God’s Word defines sin.
True repentance is turning from sin, and turning from sin means to stop sinning, then a person must live a sinless life in order to be saved. Jesus Christ began His ministry of preaching the Gospel by teaching the doctrine of repentance (Mat. 4:17), and everyone that does not repent of his sins which is the breaking of God’s commandments cannot enter His Kingdom. Christ later said and taught everyone that does not repent will perish, Luke 13: 3.
If all these Christian Preachers and members don’t repent of these sins, and begin now to teach, preach and obey the true Gospel, they all will soon come under the curse of God–the coming tribulation of the great and dreadful Day of the Lord. Mal. 4:1-4, Mat. 3:10-12, Rev. 2:14-15. I Peter 4:17, says ” For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall be the end be of them that obey not the Gospel of God?” When you follow the desires of your Sinful Nature, your lives will produce these Evil Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery,[a] fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. “Galatians 5:19-21.
