The rejection of the Cross of Christ for daily living for God is not based on theological reasons but moral reasons. It is the pride in the heart of man and disobedience to the Lord in some manner that divides. Something that we do or maybe a loved one does which we condone that the Cross of Christ would call us to separate from and repent of is the reason for the rejection of Jesus Christ and Him crucified for daily living for God.
The time, money and effort spent in vain, religious practices to live a holy life unto God would be revealed as dung if we turned from them and looked to the atoning work of Jesus Christ for the answer and our foolish pride will not allow such ‘disaster’.
Our loved ones who are living in sin; those are who are lost and don’t know the God of the Bible, we would have to admit their condition and cry out to God for His mercy instead of comforting ourselves with the lie of their false Salvation.
The time of playing church is over. It is time for all to realize that the mental nod to the Cross of Christ for daily living for the Lord is not faith in His atoning work but rejection based on our moral reasoning. If the Bible calls it sin, it’s sin. Fornication is sin. Homosexuality is sin. Adultery is sin.
Let us stop turning a blind eye to sin and comforting ourselves by denying that God has called it sin and admit, confess and submit to the reality that God sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to pay the penalty of that sin AND break the power of that sin. This is the moral reasoning behind the rejection of Jesus Christ and Him crucified. The Cross of Christ shines a light on sin and expels it’s power of we believe in the power of God, Jesus Christ and Him crucified. It is there that sin was nailed to the cross. It was there that the devil and his minions were utterly and totally defeated by the atoning work of Christ Jesus.
We either believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified for daily living for God or we don’t. If we don’t, we are foolish and perishing. The gospel of another Jesus has been presented to the church in the form of 40 days of purpose, 21 days of fasting, shemitahs, harbingers, prayer shawls, blood moons and the list goes on and on. All of this is foolishness. It is dung and we who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ should repent and count it as such.
“16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? for you are the temple of the Living God; as God has said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My People.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, says the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:16-18
