The Hypocritical Christian

Something that a Christian can always look forward to is being judged by non-believers and even other believers. We all experienced it I’m sure; you know, when someone points out a flaw in you that you may or may not have known about yourself. Sometimes the accusations are accurate and sometimes they are very invalid. I want to first speak to the non-believer that loves to find this faults to make their non-belief have more validity to them. Then I will reference those believers that have experienced this because we are handling it wrong as well.

I’m not going to come at you with any disrespect whatsoever. What I want you to understand is that “Christians” are not meant to be on this earth to show perfection. If you read the word of God you have many scriptures where the believers made it very obvious that they struggle with things that would appear to by hypocritical to what they want so much to achieve. When Paul talked about dealing with sin in his life, people for the most part weren’t running around saying, “YOU HYPOCRITE”. Instead a better understanding about how Christians are to handle sin was understood.

 (Romans 7 21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!)

Unfortunately after the early believers passed away, Christianity became more of a judgment type of religion instead of LOVE but I want you to understand that the same contradictions and evil thoughts that go through anyone’s head is not exempted from believers… as much as some Christians would want you to believe.

Mark 7:21 For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22 adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. 23 All these evils come from inside and defile a person.”

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?

These things are things each human being has to deal with so you absolutely will see things you could call hypocritical in believers. In myself and even in yourself. The issue you have is that Christians today tend to act like they are perfect and don’t deal with these things. For that I apologize that we as a whole make you feel that way. Now there are situations where someone just feels a sense of self condemnation based on how someone else is living,  (e.i. “He thinks he’s better than us because he doesn’t curse), but I know that is not always the case. Many of you just want to point out something that makes sense to you. I know you can’t believe I, A believer would dare to announce that Christians show hypocritical characteristics. This does not mean believers should but for that matter it doesn’t mean that anyone should but because of the sin we all deal with… we will have these issues.  (1 Peter 4:18a “If it is hard for the righteous to be saved…) And even if you meet a Christian proud of their hypocrisy, understand that the human nature is not easy to fight…  because they can’t meet the standard of which they claim to live doesn’t add validity to the sin in oneself.

To the believers’, I want you guys to handle it better. Most of us get defensive when someone points out hypocritical traits in ourselves and try to either point out their issues or just completely dismiss the person. Depending on how the person approaches you about, you should first evaluate to see if what they are saying is valid and even if it’s not, explain to them with love why it isn’t true or apologize for that perception they got of you. We are to have a similar attitude Paul had when speaking to non-believers and believers. Which is to see yourself as the lowest compared to others. That humility will cause you to respect that opinion with love.

1 Tim 1:15 This is a trustworthy saying, and everyone should accept it: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners”–and I am the worst of them all.

I use to be so guilty of this myself… I would fly off the handle when someone accused me of being hypocritical but over the years the Holy Spirit taught me how to deal with it with love. There have been times when the non-believer was valid and many times when they were just looking for something to validate their sin but 9/10 times we leave from the conversation with a better understanding of one another. Love is patient, Yes? So be patient with your accusers, be loving with your accusers, and continue with the fight.

Praise Jesus friends.

Osama Bin Laden’s dead, Let the Church rejoice!?

Hey guys, I know it has been awhile since I last left a post. Well this one is about the recent events of the death of Osama Bin Laden. As with all of my post, it is directed at the believers and how to live with the Love of Christ.

As Everyone knows, reports about Osama Bin Laden’s death has been announced months before 2012’s election race. This is a result of war which is part of this life on this terrible earth as a result of sin. That’s not the focus of this article though. The problem is the response from the believers I have witnessed. I see rejoicing and in some cases the praising of God about this event. Are Christians (LOVE) suppose to rejoice in a mans death who did not come to know the love of Christ? Now I have heard so many excuses as to why this is OK and acceptable. In many cases I have seen people using certain scriptures to convey their feelings. At the same token I have seen people use scriptures in opposition with those to convey their feelings as to why it is not OK. Without clear understanding of God’s word both sides could be bias because we HUMANS always look for scriptures that convey what we already feel. It goes back to the heart … (Jeremiah 17:9 “The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is?)

First I will talk about the main scripture I see people posting on their facebook. Which is “When the righteous prosper, the city rejoices. When the wicked perish, there are shouts of joy.” -Proverb 11:10 There are way to many things I can point out about this scripture being used for this situation context and such but that would take too long. The main thing is… if you use that scripture you are implying that the U.S. is righteous which we should know by now that the WORLD’S powers are far from righteous. So that scripture doesn’t even stand a chance to be accurate for times such as now.

Look, yes God allows who He wishes to live and die but that does not mean we should allow our human nature to direct our actions and words. To be honest if you do your studying you find out that early Christians were not concerned about worldly affairs such as wars and such. They just focused on the love of Christ and continued to live in that love. I mean if Paul was killed before he became a believer would they have rejoiced about his death like many of us rejoice about Bin Laden’s death?

When i first heard about the death of Bin Laden I too was moved to rejoice but then i realized this man didn’t even know Christ… not only that me rejoicing in his death is the same judgement as those who Jesus rebuked about judging… to rejoice in another humans death is saying they deserved death which is a judgement im not willing to entertain. It’s another war inside me as we humans will have many times over . So that being realized I had to look into the word of God to see what God’s heart about the death of the non-believer is.

I could use  “Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles; Lest the Lord see it, and it displease Him,  And He turn away His wrath from him” (Prov 24:17-18) but many of you then attempt to negate that scripture with another proverb that seems to be opposite. Instead of seeing how they work together … we of course just post scriptures to go against another scripture… we talked about this before and this is not how we are supposed to use the word of God. So let’s go directly to God’s heart. ‎”Do I have any pleasure at all that the wicked should die?” says the Lord God, “ and not that he should turn from his ways and live? For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,” says the Lord God” (Ezk 18:23 & 32). Look at that right there. That is God talking himself … saying he has NO pleasure when a non-believer dies. Even when he has to do it guys, God does not rejoice in the death of the wicked…. If God’s heart is not to rejoice then neither should ours. We should not be acting as the world when our nations enemies die, we should continue to love and teach the gospel. We must not be OF the world. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2 

Understand that im not supporting anyone for mourning for his death… but im not supporting rejoicing in his death as well. I’m saying continue to love and share the gospel… don’t be caught up in these type of things. shoot I don’t even watch the news… I wouldn’t even know if I didn’t come on fb. Please be careful with your words and actions guys because you don’t want to find yourself under the same judgement as those pharisees Jesus rebuked. Although you are not casting those stones, your heart can be guilty of the same thing as theirs. Please continue to pray that God develops our hearts in HIS full love.

Praise Jesus!


Instead of a Show!!

So my friend sent this song to me and said it was dedicated to me. This song is song powerful … it is called “Instead of a Show”. It’s about today’s version of “Church” and how they HATE it. Not only do they talk about why they hate it but then they give an answer to how the Church should be. It’s actually according to scripture. This is a fantastic find… Praise God the body is waking up.

Keep in mind that my website is barely about the hypocrisy of today’s version of “church”. Thats our nature as humans … I don’t focus on it and neither should you but the fact that it has been created into a show is a great point here. Today’s version of church is meant to be a show versus the early church. It’s really a definition change. How could we allow the term CHURCH to be redefined as it has been?


Christian Standards: Christian = Weekly “Church” Goer

Today most Christians have been conditioned to judge one another based on what “church” fellowship they attend. So often when someone finds out I am a Christian, the first question asked after that is “WHAT CHURCH DO YOU ATTEND”. My response is that I am part of the SAME church as them as the BODY OF CHRIST. (Really the only thing that divided the early church as the church was the cities they were in) This fact amazes me because somehow we have convinced ourselves that the early Church had the same standard. That they didn’t value the love that each other had but focused on who was sitting in a pew every week. One who reads the New Testament would find out they are extremely mistaken.

Let’s go to scripture and find out how to know if someone is a believer (Christian) or not.

1 John 3:17 If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion–how can God’s love be in that person?

Here we have a simple one that simply tells us that LOVE will show us who is a Christian or not. We are given an example of what a Christian would do in a situation. I remember the days when I went to a weekly service and passed by the needy because I felt I had to use that money to pay my “tithes”. Sometimes I would tell them I wish I could help you but I only have enough money to pay my “tithes”. Did that mean I did not have God’s love in me? ABSOLUTELY!!!

The next scripture i’ll use is probably the most important way for us to know who has the Spirit of God (who is a Christian).

Gal 5 19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.

Here we have very detailed understandings as to who is of God and who is not. What characteristics both sides of the spectrum would have. Notice one of those characteristics of those who follow the sinful nature does NOT say does not attend weekly Sunday or Saturday service. Also notice none of those characteristics of those who live by the Spirit does NOT say attends weekly service.

Another example of what will make a Believer is when Jesus tell’s his disciples what will happen when we go before judgement.

Matt 25 34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’

44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

Again noticed we are not being judged base on attending weekly services. By now I hope you guys are getting that it’s about LOVE. LOVE…. LOVE!! Every aspect of being a believer of Christ is LOVE. See going to a church building is SO much easier than loving other people… even those who aren’t loving toward us. We Christians over the years have created so many standards that make it mentally easier for us to consider ourselves Christians. How many times have we heard someone define their Christianity by… I PAY ALL MY TITHES, I GO TO CHURCH EVERY SUNDAY, ETC. Not often do we hear… I LOVE EVERYONE WHO PASSES BY, I GAVE ALL MY PRECESSION TO TAKE CARE OF THE NEEDY, in fact, most of us can safely say we have NEVER heard that. (I have a few times now)

Then we have those who use the “DO NOT FORSAKE THE ASSEMBLY OF GOD” (Hebrews 10:25) as a scripture to condemn and rebuke those who do not attend those weekly services. It’s funny that a scripture is being used this way even though early Christians DID NOT meet the way we do today. This is what happens when MAN’s heart tries to use scripture for their own means. It is usually does with good intentions BUT is not used with the intent it was written. That chapter in Hebrew is NOT about going to a church building what so ever. It’s much deeper than that on a historical aspect.

How easy it is for us to take scriptures like Acts 20 7 (On the first day of the week we came together to break bread. Paul spoke to the people and, because he intended to leave the next day, kept on talking until midnight.) and use it to support what we already do.  Just because you use it that way doesn’t make it correct.

Now those who do go to weekly services, I don’t want you to feel like this article is against you. It is about those who feel they are superior because they go to those weekly services vs. those who go out and feed the needy, those who have home fellowships, and those who LOVE as Christ teaches.

Let us learn to grow as loving people who no longer judge one another based on silly human arguments. (1 Cor 2:13 This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words) We are going to have to learn how to let go of some of the things we have been conditioned to believe in order to do this.

Love you all,

Praise Jesus


Do I HATE the “CHURCH”?

So by now I’ve learned that there a few spectrum of views on my blog; we have the ones that are part of the system of the institutionalized church (Traditions), those who are thinking about leaving, those have left and learned to become the church and LOVE, and other. Recently I was asked the question as to who is my page targeting? Is it targeting the unbelievers? How about the youth? Is it the sinners? My answer was that I am targeting whoever happens to come across my page. That person felt I only focus on the “CHURCH” and homosexuality. While I do focus on both of those but not as much as one may say. Out of 47 articles on this blog about three of them are about homosexuality and as for the CHURCH thing, of course my blog is about the church. Everything I post will have scripture from God’s word. I don’t value my opinion or anyone else’s. Only the word of God. (Also I might add that the articles on homosexuality are usually about myself. I’ve gotten great responses from practicing homosexuals saying they really appreciate how I put myself out their like that, some even say I’ve taken their excuses away. Praise God)

The question was then asked, DO I HATE THE CHURCH? I responded, “No I do not hate the church because the Church is the body of Christ, the bride of Christ.” With that said, I LOVE THE CHURCH, I LOVE BEING PART OF THE CHURCH. The thing is I have had to redefine what the word Church means to fit the definition of the word of God. When we think of Church today we think of building with people in it. When I think of Church I think of each person who choose to deny themselves to follow the Christ. I don’t think of the 10 “church” buildings on one block as the church anymore. THIS BLOG IS ABOUT BREAKING THE DIVISION WE HAVE ESTABLISHED AS THE CHURCH. Let me say that again, THIS BLOG IS ABOUT BREAKING THE DIVISION WE HAVE ESTABLISHED AS THE CHURCH. I am interested in becoming one again and loving one another as we read in the book of Acts.

Acts 4

The Believers Share Their Possessions

32 All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. 33 With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all 34 that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales 35 and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need.

36 Joseph, a Levite from Cyprus, whom the apostles called Barnabas (which means “son of encouragement”), 37sold a field he owned and brought the money and put it at the apostles’ feet.

As we know divisions always tried to set themselves up in the body of Christ and in Israel. Let’s look at Paul when he found out people began creating divisions based on who they choose to FOLLOW. The first signs of divisional churches.

1 Cor 1 13 Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized in the name of Paul? 14 I thank God that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius, 15 so no one can say that you were baptized in my name. 16 (Yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I don’t remember if I baptized anyone else.) 17 For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel—not with wisdom and eloquence, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.

We have completely ignored this and decided we wanted our own leaders to follow anyway. Today we live in a world where the minute you tell someone your Christian, They want to know what CHURCH do you belong to? Which really means who do you follow, what man do you follow? This is NOT what God intended for the body of Christ. If you remember in Acts, the Church was so unified that they got rid of the idea of need in the body.

So now for those who judge this blog harshly because it challenges what you already believe about the Church, I ask that you read them first. It is easy for us to generalize a person based on our disagreements. Offense is what we humans hold on to not LOVE. So if my post about homosexuality offends someone it’s what they will generalize this blog about. If another person is offended by my articles about tithing, they will generalize that my blog is about tithing. You begin to realize that the viewer will interpret something the way they please. There are 47 articles on this blog at this time and they are all a broad range of topics. The most popular ones are about the traditions of today’s church and reading God’s word to find out if those traditions are biblically acceptable. So do I hate the church? ABSOLUTELY NOT but I do hate many of the traditions that nullify the word of God. Does this mean that those who go to institutionalized churches are condemned? Let it not be, meaning no. God be the judge of the hearts. I have many friends who still choose to attend them and I love them and they love me. I am one with them as the church. One then asks how do I fellowship? I meet in homes, hang out with homeless, and am usually out with believers, learning from and with them. See we have be en trained to believe that you must be in a pew Sunday or Saturday morning. Usually you aren’t really followshipping. Yes your sitting next to one another but you can’t really get to know your brother or sister. You hold hands during prayer and you leave in a few hours. I was in that type of setting for most of my life and honestly I can’t recall most of the people I’ve sat next to unless friends already. Now I learn from other believers and know who they are intimately as part of the bride.

I love you all!

Praise Jesus!


MEDIA: Tools of Babylon (Conditioning Hatred of Christians)

Hopefully you guys have read my article about getting a new world order. (http://goo.gl/yW9T) I’m not the type of person to really focus on that type of conspiracy type thinking which is why there aren’t many post about it on my blog. What I have noticed from that blog is that there  is a serious attack on Christianity by the Media (world). It is to be expected and it absolutely will get worse. As we hide in our building (insto churches) we are missing what is really going on out there. Many of us Christians enjoy the news because we feel we need to know what is going on out there. As if the news is covering what is really going on out there. I remember in college I had a professor who was suppose to be teaching us psychology but used his classes as a platform to educate us on what is really going on. He showed us a documentary about the media (namely the news) and how they work. Many of the people in that documentary have disappeared after doing it. (consequence, I think not). We this article is about the attack on Christianity. As most of us know there is a movement to “equal rights” for homosexuals. Thats fine and dandy but the strategy that the media is taking absolutely appears to be from the teachings of Alice Bailey.

2. Break the Traditional Judaeo-Christian Family Concept. Break communication between parents and children so that parents can’t pass on spiritual values to their children. Do this by pushing excessive child rights.

4. Since sex is the greatest expression of man’s enjoyment of life, man must be free to express sex in ALL its forms. Homosexuality, orgies, even bestiality are desirable so long as no one is being abused or harmed.

As you see, her teaching is to get rid of the Christian idea that follows God’s word but create a new version of Christianity. This is absolutely happening. I remember at work when I was accused of being a homophobe because I posted a scripture about homosexuality on my facebook wall. This one girl said she doesn’t know if God is right about homosexuality. This is a “Christian” now. Christians are just as confused as ever because of media.

Lately the media has been focusing on suicide of homosexual youth. Labeling it hate crimes when so far none of them were because of hate crimes on homosexuality but more of stupidness of other youth. Now some youth that were acting stupid will be labeled as bigots for the rest of their lives.

Now I go on youtube and they are promoting a channel to gay youth called “It’s Going To Get Better”. Which is fine as well but why is it they do things so drastic for homosexuals but not for other types of issues in this world. How about the homeless, where is the “Its Going to Get Better For Them”? What about the people in Iraq, mentally challenged children, and I can continue. Media only focuses on what they want for reasons beyond what we are told.

For the past few years the main false Christian movement media has focused on is that of Westboro Baptist Church. They will continue to focus on them because it paints the picture of Christians that they want to show. This will and is creating a prejudice that many people will think is warranted.  Now when I comment on any video on youtube I get hate messages from people. I can simply say I love this song and I get thinks like get out of here you homophobe. Why? because my name is OCHRISTFOLLOWER.

So two things are happening… The world is being conditioned to HATE Christians and those who want to be accepted by the world and keep the Christian name are conditioned to think God is wrong about certain things. That brings us to another one of Alice Bailey’s teachings.

10.Get the church to endorse every one of these nine strategies. Get the church to accept these principles and to say they’re OK (then legal ground is given for these values to get a foothold).

Now we will soon truly understand what Babylon is. Why God has to tell us to COME OUT OF BABYLON. It’s either you accept God’s truth or you accept the false church beliefs. Eventually it will become law to accept Babylon’s teachings opposed to Christ teachings. Although they will say its Christ teachings. I was just in Texas and they have billboards saying things like Jesus was OK with the homosexual lifestyle.

Media is powerful and can change the views of people. I limit my viewing of it and I never watch the news. I can see whats going on every time I see it. For those who do watch it, I want you guys to recognize what you see happening.

Mark 13:13 All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.

John 15:21 They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the One who sent me.

So true Christians will be hated if they stand firm on Christ teachings. If the bible says homosexuality is not the way of God then we are to stand firm on it no matter what. Those who accept another teaching about the subject that isn’t from the word of God is not of God. Doesn’t mean we throw hate at people …we are to love but we are to stand firm.

Praise Jesus

RICHES ARE A NECESSITY TO MINISTER EFFECTIVELY?!

I want to tell you guys a story!

Mark 6

30The apostles gathered around Jesus and reported to him all they had done and taught. 31Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”

32So they went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place. 33But many who saw them leaving recognized them and ran on foot from all the towns and got there ahead of them. 34When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things.

35By this time it was late in the day, so his disciples came to him. “This is a remote place,” they said, “and it’s already very late. 36Send the people away so they can go to the surrounding countryside and villages and buy themselves something to eat.”

37But he answered, “YOU give them something to eat.”
They said to him, “That would take eight months of a man’s wages! Are we to go and spend that much on bread and give it to them to eat?”

38“How many loaves do you have?” he asked. “Go and see.”
When they found out, they said, “Five—and two fish.”

39Then Jesus directed them to have all the people sit down in groups on the green grass. 40So they sat down in groups of hundreds and fifties. 41Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to his disciples to set before the people. He also divided the two fish among them all. 42They all ate and were satisfied, 43and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces of bread and fish. 44The number of the men who had eaten was five thousand.


Now many of you guys know this story but there was something many of us may have missed. Did you notice how the apostles responded to the need? They said to Jesus, “DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH THAT WILL COST?”. This is the mindset of the man that serves money. It’s not always about someone saying “I WANT TO BE RICH” but the power of Mammon (Money) becomes our god to the point we become worrisome and fearful when we don’t have it. Jesus did something very interesting… He showed us how to take care of the need without the fear of not having money. Not only was this story about a miracle to show that Jesus is God but it was just as equally about seeing how the Kingdom of God works. How to not worry about money to serve the people in need.

One thing I get from “Christians” today is a sneering response to the fact that I teach that MONEY IS A ENEMY TO GOD. They mock me and say I’m crazy because God knows we NEED money to help people. In-fact God WANTS us to make more and more money so that we can help more and more people. Well you know what… I’m going to show you exactly what they did to Jesus when he spoke about His heart toward Money.

Luke 16

13“No servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.”

14The Pharisees, who loved money, heard all this and were SNEERING (MOCKING) at Jesus. 15He said to them, “You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of men, but God knows your hearts. What is highly valued among men is detestable in God’s sight.

So it shows that the same “Christians” who mock and sneer at me when I teach this understanding are guilty of the same thing they did to Jesus. In-fact they are sneering at Jesus as well.

I ask that you guys really examine your heart about situations; remembering the heart is deceitful beyond cure. (Jeremiah 17:9)

“What is highly valued among men is detestable in God’s sight.”

Praise Jesus!
