The world has not become more “Christian” because the seeker sensitive/social justice church has made league with them but rather the church has become more worldly. No longer can the separation be seen between the “Christian” and the world. Joining the world to overcome the world has left too many Christians spiritually defeated and their faith is in danger of destruction.
“3 According as His Divine power has given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that has called us to glory and virtue:
4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of the Divine Nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” 2 Peter 1:3-4
The Lord has given unto us all things pertaining to life and godliness. No where in the Word of God does the Lord tell us to join the world to overcome the world. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God. Forsake the vain philosophies cloaked in Scripture and presented by man as biblical doctrine and believe upon the Lord Jesus Christ for all things that pertain unto life and godliness. Jesus is the Source and His Cross the means by which we receive from God…not the vanities from the minds of man. Jesus Christ afforded us this Divine Nature when He gave up the Ghost on Calvary yet religion strives daily to hinder us from partaking and it (religion) has worked.
Believe upon the Cross of Christ to break the power of sin in your life. Believe upon Him for victorious Christian living so that others may see and come out from among them as well. It is the ministry of the Holy Spirit to circumcise our heart and remove those things which are not pleasing unto God but we usurp that ministry when we go the ways of the world for victory. There is no peace beyond understanding; there is no joy unspeakable when we do not partake in God’s Divine Nature.
Choose this day in whom you are going to serve. He stands at the door knocking wanting you to partake in Him…wanting you to taste and see that He is good.
“4 I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
5 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
6 This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The Angel of the Lord encamps round about them that fear Him, and delivers them.
8 O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusts in Him.
9O fear the Lord, ye His Saints: for there is no want to them that fear Him.” Psalms 34:4-9
