For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. (Romans 8:19)
Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: (Col 1-25-27)
loves His creation and would not send anyone to an eternal hell
has created us in His image and likeness
has set a predestined walk for all men, that all would be reconciled
died for the sins of all men, and has redeemed all
lives in His saints, here and now
has brought the kingdom to earth
has made us a new creation through His death, burial, and resurrection
The Holy Spirit
teaches all things directly, allowing each man to have an intimate personal relationship with God
empowers believers to walk as priests and kings
Who are you? The church says you are a sinner, even if you are born again. Who are you? The church says you are just a worm, deserving of hell. Who are you? Jesus says you are a pearl of great price. Who are you? Knowing who you are in Christ is vital to your spiritual maturity.
My Challenge to You
After Martin Luther nailed his 95 point thesis to the church door, he issued a challenge to Rome: if you can prove me wrong either by common sense or by the scriptures I will recant.
If I can by the Scriptures or by common sense convince you that many of your basic core beliefs are in error are you willing to hear truth?
And the brethren immediately, through the night, sent forth both Paul and Silas to Berea, who having come, went to the synagogue of the Jews; and these were more noble than those in Thessalonica, they received the word with all readiness of mind, every day examining the Writings whether those things were so; many, indeed, therefore, of them did believe, and of the honorable Greek women and men not a few. (Acts 17:10-12) Young's Literal Translation
Are you willing to examine the scriptures to see if your beliefs are based on scripture or traditions of men and doctrines of demons?
Are you a spiritual Berean, noble and honorable, or is the old time religion of your fathers good enough for you? If your beliefs are based on correctly translated Scripture, then you will be better grounded in your faith; if not, you will have to make a decision. The great whore does not like to be questioned. You may be branded a heretic and given the right foot of fellowship right out the door. Yes, there is a price to pay for walking in the truth. You will learn to fly with the eagles but you will be scorned by the turtles.
Having gone through it personally I can tell you it is not easy. The lies and distortions of two thousand years of organized religion are not easy to overcome. It involves prayer and seeking God. It involves looking into the Greek and Hebrew texts. It involves putting your relationship with God above all else. Are you up to the challenge? Is God calling you to pick up the gauntlet?
