“4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than Godly edifying which is in faith: so do.
5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.
8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;
9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,
10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;
11 According to the glorious Gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.” 1 Timothy 1:4-11
According to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, laws are made for the lawless…not for the Righteous. Why then do the religious place laws? Why do they partake in legalism? Quite simply, because they are preaching another gospel.
The religion (moral law) of the world is political correctness. If we, as Believers, do not partake in the world’s religion of political correctness, we are lawless and considered transgressors.
Most of the theology in the modern church has conformed to the world’s religion of political correctness and their moral law, instead of the Word of God and HIS moral law. The messages of forgiveness without repentance and an unconditional love that condones sinful ways are nothing more than “vain janglings” that produce feigned (pretend) faith. The witchcraft and incantations to overthrow sin minister confusion rather than Godly edification.
Instead of “Looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the Cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the Right Hand of the Throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:2), we look to the law, any law, and become a transgressor.
Jesus Christ IS alive. Our Lord IS sitting at the Right Hand of the Throne of God. His Eyes ARE searching to and fro to show Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him (2 Chronicles 16:9).
The Holy Spirit is not commissioned to free us (Believers) from the law of sin and death when our faith is in a gospel that is filtered through the moral standards of political correctness. He is commissioned to set at liberty those whose faith is placed in Jesus Christ. Faith in the Jesus Who came to die on Calvary’s Cross to BREAK the bondages of what the world (and many in the church) have deemed moral but God has declared an abomination. Not faith in a Jesus who winks at sin but faith in the Jesus Who now sits at the Right Hand of God, who searches to and fro to show Himself strong… to author and to finish an unfeigned faith – a faith that is solely and exclusively in Him to free us from the law of sin and death.
Fight – fight the good fight of faith. Faith is Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
