Land of the free?

It only takes a person a short search through the latest news to realize that America has lost it’s mind, there was once a thing called common sense, but everywhere you look, nothing makes any sense.

this is what happens, when a nation has rejected Jesus Christ, Gods son, as Lord and Savior.

Common sense was once something everyone seemed to have, but when the Mayor of Huston Texas does away with men’s and women’s bathrooms, so now you can use whatever one you want or when a dad makes his son walk home a mile from school, and is arrested for child abuse, or when a kindergartner is expelled for pointing his finger like a gun at someone.

WE HAVE LOST ALL COMMON SENSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

and I fear, it’s NOT COMING BACK!

it just gets crazier, like the EPA who is on a power high, they want to regulate even a mud puddle on your yard, in Virginia the EPA stopped all fund raising car washes, because the soap might somehow find it’s way into the bay.

Another man who was developing his land moved some dirt and it fell into his own stream on his land, he was arrested and as far as I know is still in jail because the dirt might pollute a lake or something 20 miles away!

Our country has lost it’s mind, there’s no common sense, freedom is being taken each day and before long, every American will find ourselves enslaved by the very government we the people, voted in.

America was once considered the land of the free,

is it today?

America land of Sissies

I’ve been seeing more and more stories about how sick and tired people are becoming of all the touchy feely people that seem to be getting their way.

like this mayor who said he was tired of all the bullying that’s going on and how people need to stop their crying, get some balls and grow up!

when I was a kid, everyone picked on everyone, and if you got tired of it, you stood up to them and took care of business. No one likes a bully, but this attitude that we have to change our laws almost in order to appease these people is ridiculous.

the fact is, American men have become sissies, and the reason why it’s happened is because of the feminist movement who wanted all men to be emasculated and because of the homosexual movement who wanted all men to wear panties.

and the sad fact is they succeeded in turning our boys into little girls who whine about everything. Fairness became the rules of life in America where masculinity and mastering everything became outlawed.

And I think a lot of Americans are sick of it, men need to be men, women need to be women and kids need to be kids without fear of being attacked by sissified adults if they play cowboys and Indians.

Has America become the land of hypersensitive Pansy’s ? I think so, because if you don’t agree with the Pansy’s they attack you, call you racial, bigoted, a hater, when the facts are that’s what they are. They’ll even try to get you fired from your job if you disagree with their opinions, your not allowed to have your own opinions or have free speech.

there’s even some who want to ban books or put in warnings on the ones who are not in agreement with pansyism 

It’s truly sad, a free nation that is enslaving itself to the thoughts and beliefs of sissified progressives.  A progressive, liberal, is nothing more than Satans tool for destruction.

False teaching

Over the past two months I’ve been going through I John and talking about false teachers. We live in a day where there is so much teaching going on that is not biblical, and yet they use the bible and God to as a basis to spread their message.

false teachers are everywhere, from our government, to schools, television evangelist and in our churches.

there are those who are trying to mix Christianity with Islam, saying there are similarities between the two, so therefore we should become one and call it Chrislam.

There is nothing similar between the two, Islam is in direct opposition to Christianity, but these false teachers are attempting to mix the two.

its a sin to lie, it’s even a greater sin to lie about the bible, but to TEACH a lie about the bible and God is the greatest sin of all.

Islam isn’t interested in mixing with Christianity, it only wants to destroy it, that’s why we’re called infidels, even the Koran says anyone who doesn’t convert to Islam is to be killed or enslaved.

what these idiotic people who call themselves Christians who attempt to mix with any false religion are doing the work of Satan.

the church is in trouble in America because Christians are refusing to stand on the truth of a Gods Word and refuse to compromise the faith that was given to us

and if we continue to go down this path, everyone of our churches will be closed in the near future and a mosque will be in the place where our churches stand right now.

When truth and love collide

We finished I John last week, and what we learned through that if you were able to remember everything
any person, regardless of race, nationality, church affiliation
If they are right in the inside and have received Christ as their Savior
They are all apart of Gods family
We also learned that we are without question to
show godly love to each other
& it doesn’t matter if we agree on everything or not

 

Each of the writers in – bible were writing about certain themes and had specific things that God wanted addressed
You find out that John wrote to the family of God
Paul to the church of God
And Peter to the government of God
In II Jn. John continues his epistle about love in the family of God

he tells us about a lady in – church who was hospitable
She entertained Christians, but apparently there were some coming to her home who claimed to be saved but weren’t

 

John is going to tell us, that there is danger when we get mixed up with – unsaved
II Johns theme is: For truths Sake
What happens when love comes in conflict with truth?
We all hear it shouted everywhere today, that God is love, he loves everyone
and he is love (one of his attributes)
But since he’s love, the sinner says that you and I cannot judge the sinner

 

We’re told by people like Robert Shuller and his son Jr , Oprah and many TV evangelists

 

That since God is all love, everyone regardless of who you are and what you’ve done
Will be in heaven, because we’re all basically good

And if we say that is not true, they shout us down and try to silence any opposition
and call us narrow minded & haters
The reason why that is shouted so loud, is because love and truth are in conflict
Truth and love are suppose to work in harmony
Why do some marriages last a lifetime and are harmonious?
First of all they chose to love each other
love is a choice and you have to choose to love that person,
but is that choice to love each other enough?
There’s an old song by the Beatles that says love is all we need,

but is it?
- fact is, it’s not enough
A couple can promise to love each other all they want, but if their not truthful with each other

 

Their marriage will be in danger of falling apart
Husbands & wives must also have 3 priorities to make their marriage solid

 

1st. God must be first in both their lives, he comes before each other

2nd your wife or husband comes next, no one is to get in – way of that relationship
3rd. Our children are next, my kids or grand kids do not come before my wife and I don’t come after them
There are many wives who put their husbands somewhere down the list of priorities,
usually the wants of their kids come first
and they hurt their marriage
Men do – same thing, hunting or some hobby or job will come first
& they hurt their marriage
we also learned in I Jn. – love of God is confined to – family of God

John said little children, we are to love each other in the family of God

 

That’s one of – marks that we love God and that he loves us
He made it clear that those who do not love God are not in his family
They are in – family of their father – devil

 

 

Another truth that we looked at was
if we don’t practice righteousness we are not one of – Lords

 

We can’t wiggle out of that, that’s proof that we belong to God

We are to practice righteousness toward our brothers and sisters in Christ
We have all heard that there is a universal brotherhood of man
No there’s not

 

bible never once teaches such a thing, that’s from – witness of man & his own thinking that we learned about last week
they say we’re all brothers, in order to put everyone on a guilt trip
To try to force those of us who are Christians to think like them
So what about – sinner who is not in – family of God
Aren’t we suppose to love them as preachers say?
Yes but it’s limited

We are to love them to – extent of taking the gospel to them
That’s why Jesus said love your neighbor as you love yourself
You loved yourself enough to know that you wanted to be in heaven through salvation

 

And we should love our neighbors enough to want them to be in heaven also
Let’s take Jonah as our example

Jonah 3: 10
And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way, and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them and he did it not

4:1 But it displeased Jonah exceedingly and he was very angry

Jonah did not love the Ninevites but God sent him there to preach to them about – Lord
God loved them and since he loved them,
God wanted Jonah to take – gospel to them
God never asked Jonah to love them as he did – family of God
but he wanted Jonah to love them enough,
to want to see them become apart of – family of God
God wanted Jonah to care about their lost souls
After – Ninevites turned to God, God wanted Jonah to love them

as he did himself and as he did – family of God
That’s – relationship that God has with – lost world
We cannot love – lost sinner as God does and we’re not asked to do so
But we are to love them enough to take – gospel to them
We are to love them in – sense that God loves them, he died for everyone and offers his love to them
We are never once told to become friends with – unsaved,

We’re never to intermarry with them
or create services in our churches in order to draw them in

 

Churches have made huge mistakes by creating services that appeal to – unsaved

They have incorporated music that appeals to – flesh
They dropped all scriptural commandments of obedience and morality
In order to get crowds to feel comfortable
God told us to love them enough to go out into – fields that are white unto harvest and give them – good news
If they receive Christ as Savior, then we are to bring them into our churches and teach them and love them as our family
But today’s churches turned that on its head
And today instead of church services being the place where believers gather to worship
It’s a gathering place for – unsaved mixed with – saved

You’ll remember that Jesus chased – sinners out of – temple, he cleansed it

 

If an unsaved person comes in, were to invite them to accept Christ,
not change our church to make them comfortable

 

they should be uncomfortable in – presence of God
But let’s take this farther

What about false teachers who claim to be a child of God
and yet their goal is to pervert – scriptures and deny Christ as God?
Are we to love them too?

II Jn. 7

For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh, this is a deceiver and an anti-Christ
Vs10
If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed

 

Follow me on this so we’re not confused

 

All of this love, love, love, stuff that everyone keeps shouting is not biblical at all
We are to love – unsaved, to – extent of giving them the gospel as I have said
But there are those, who we are not to love at all, but actually be very wary of
We need to keep our distance from them & if someone comes in teaching something false
We are to tell them to leave

 

 

You see, there are times when love comes into conflict with truth
Jesus said I am the way, the truth, and the life
He did not say I am love only
God expresses his love toward the world within the boundaries and limitations of truth that are set in scripture
So when it comes to false teachers, we are not to love them
We’re not to bring them into our churches and especially into our homes
There are many Christians who have brought in false teachers by television
We have to be careful of who it is, we’re bringing in, who were having a friendship with
I Jn 2:15 told us not to love the world nor the things that are in it

 

Question. When love and truth in in conflict, which one should
win?
Truth

 

You have probably seen all these stickers on cars that say ” love wins”
Those stickers are wrong
Truth always wins, it comes first, remember Jesus is love,
but he said no one comes to him without accepting him as truth for salvation first
He said I am the way, the truth. And the life
So let’s make it very clear to all of us, when it comes to someone who is selling something false
Be it doctrine or someone who claims to be saved but they reject Christ as Savior
We are not to love them, we are not to associate with them
We are to remain as far and as cold toward them as possible

I can extend – gospel to them, but that’s it
II Jn. 1
The elder unto the elect lady and her children whom I love in the truth and not I only, but also all they that have known truth
John here is calling himself – elder

 

An elder was an older and godly man who held an office in the church, as a pastor or teacher

 

The elect lady, I believe is a reference to – church,
later on in Revelation, the church is called the bride of Christ

 

Her children are those who are born again that make up the church body
You’ll notice John says he loves them but the word that’s emphasized is truth
He loves them in the confines of truth
What’s the truth that John is speaking about?
The truth of – gospel, Christians believe – Word of God,

 

they believe in – deity of Christ and God as our Father
So with-in those parameters, he has love for them because they are in agreement with truth
Keeping all of that in mind, why is there so much chaos and trouble with-in churches today?
Because there are so many who scream we must love each other,
But are not in agreement with truth
And so there’s division
Could a church like ours, have a fellowship and work together with – Catholic Church in Vicksburg?
Absolutely we could

 

If, They rejected – pope, quit praying to Mary and stop believing baptism in – church saves them

 

Do I think that will ever happen? No

I can love them enough to give them – gospel
But I cannot have a relationship with them until they come to – truth
Our world today is in trouble and confusion because truth and love are in collision

 

Truth and love have to have a partnership in order to succeed
and today’s world has only accepted love
And they have rejected truth,

 

and until they come to – acceptance of truth of who Jesus is
T This morning were going to look at one particular verse to start with

that I think is extremely important

 

Because what it talks about has impacted our everyday lives since we were born
And it will effect us until the day we die
Much of it is negative in our lives
and is the basis of why we continually battle with sin

 

I Jn 5:9
If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater, for this is the witness of God which he hath testified to his Son

 

The Witness of Men
A witness is someone who has seen something and believes something
regardless if it’s true or false
And then they proclaim their belief to those around them

 

you & I have been the recipients of mans witness, be it true or false since the beginning of time
If you watch the news today, can you trust what their saying is true?
Do you know there was a time in America, when you could trust them,

And what they reported was true?

 

We live in a day, where there’s a credibility gap between – news and – people
There was a time when a politician spoke, you could trust what they were saying was true
they told the truth they actually wanted what was best for our country
But today, we are at a place in America, where if you trust – news or a politician, it borders on foolishness

 

We have to be very selective of what news or politician we can put some trust in,
& believe what their saying is indeed a fact
That credibility gap has grown into the size of – Grand Canyon
It’s like this plane that vanished, that no one apparently knows anything about
day after it happened it was reported by eye witnesses from CIA operatives who watched it land in Pakistan
But they were quickly shut down and silenced

 

One guy said, he don’t care what story or box they come up with their lying
Instead they ran a search in – opposite direction and then claimed it crashed with no debris

 

Why?
That’s pretty easy, you can’t let – people know – truth,
if that is – truth

 

Because to know that plane might be used later in a terrorist attack would cause the people to demand action

And we have a very lazy and spineless, president
who has no say about anything, and has caused our country to be weak

 

It’s like with Russia invading Ukraine, our presidents hands are tied & Putin knows it & is not afraid of him

 

If, Obama knows where that plane is, what can he do about it?
People have a hard time believing anything our leaders or media says
But what I find fascinating is, although we don’t trust the news or politicians anymore

 

People will believe everything that’s written on the internet like

Facebook or some other social media
There was a story written on Facebook, Sal read to me about some woman who couldn’t have children
And her pastor prayed and opened her womb
And any woman who will do what she’s done can also have children
Hogwash, phony baloney, I’ve got a desert to sell you in Alaska

 

but of course people on Facebook responded by saying, oh look how wonderful
Another woman reported that she had died, and a friend put a picture of Pope John in her face and she came back to life

 

People will swallow this poison hook, line and sinker

We have to realize that propaganda from our news and politicians
is just as prevalent from everyday people on Facebook
I’ve said things about Facebook without really ever spending much time looking at it
So I thought before I say anything more about it,
I took a little time and looked through a lot of postings
It was a bit mind numbing
I thought Facebook was suppose to be about happy things that are going on in your family

 

Pictures, events like marriages or whatever
But much of it, is just airing dirty laundry & complaints
Some of if is funny, some people have a great sense of humor

 

But much of it is very political, opinionated, argumentative

 

If I wanted to read political articles I would go to – blaze not Facebook with everyone’s distorted opinions

 

It’s also full of lies

Like cat urine on pop cans killing people, that story is from yrs ago and was proven untrue

 

I think facebook could be somewhat depressing if you spend too much time on it
The news site – Blaze by Glen Beck can be like that,

I’ve told you in – past, I can only read so much and then I have to put it down
It’ll get depressing after awhile, Facebook is like that, so I’ll not be getting a page thingy
Theres also, so much feel good, sappiness on social media it’s enough to make one puke

 

If you love your husband or wife, pass this on, if you love Jesus pass this on

 

I don’t have to pass on anything to prove my love for my Lord and my family
Or, you get the feeling your suppose to feel sorry for someone who has so much on their plate!
But we all know, those people who have so much on their plate that their complaining about
Is usually self made, it doesn’t have to be that way,

 

But they like drama and peoples sympathy, it makes them feel as though their special

 

I had to laugh at some of – things people said about themselves

Everybody is busy, they should stop whining!

 

And everyone thinks what they do, their job, Or hobby is – only thing in – world worth doing , And no one else matters
The point is, when you go to – witness of men
There is bias, distortion and twisted facts on everything especially on Facebook and – internet
Question
could all of this stuff on – social networks actually be dangerous to Christians?

 

Yes, Because it takes you away from standing on the truth and facts of Gods Witness

 

And reduces you down to relying on emotions, feelings and opinions, from – witness of men
And one more thing which is a biggy,
if a person is a Christian and has posts about their faith
And then two post later, they put inappropriate things on
or says things that’s mean, or nasty

They’ve just ruined their testimony before The Lord and before the people
And trying to make yourself look godly after ruining your testimony us nearly impossible
Look at this verse, if we rely on the witness of men
Facebook and – internet is based on – witness of men

 

When we go to the world through news, politicians or social media

and we start to trust what their saying is true
We could be making the mistake of being pulled away from – truth of Christ & hurting our own witness
Here we’re told that – witness of God is greater
If people spent 1/2 their time in – Word of God as they do – internet,
we would have a lot of biblical scholars by now
But we don’t, instead we have Christians who are Internet savvy
But completely ignorant about scripture

 

There’s people who will believe everything they read or hear, but yet they reject the witness of God
I talked with a guy in Ohio, who said he doesn’t believe everything that is being said about global warming
But he agrees that we are destroying our atmosphere cause look at the longer seasons, violent storms

He just repeated all the al gore talking points
But yet we had no hurricanes last year, especially here in Michigan

violent storms were actually less than other years
We were colder this yr, but yet we had very few blizzards
- Bible says, this is what God has witnessed to us, that no man can destroy the earth
Only God can take it apart and he can put it back together

 

Vs10
He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself, he that believeth not God hath made him a liar because he believeth not the record that God gave his Son

 

If you have trusted Christ as your Savior, – Holy Spirit indwells you

And he testifies to you about things that are true
Since we were born, we have had men witness to us and much of it has been untrustworthy and not true

 

But then it says if someone doesn’t believe God, who is the only witness of truth

 

They are actually calling him a liar
When God says this is the way it is, and someone says, I don’t believe it
Then they add to their other sins by saying God is a liar
God even gave us a record, our bible is Gods record of truth
And yet we have people today, who are doing everything in their power to destroy Gods record of truth

When schools teach evolution, their attempting to destroy Gods record of truth

 

Vs11 and this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life and this life is in his Son

 

Eternal life = to have Jesus Christ, there is no other way to live for eternity in heaven
That’s – gospel in a nutshell & yet we have millions who call God a liar and say they don’t need Christ
No one can have eternal life without Christ

 

Vs12
He that hath the Son, hath life, and he that hath not the Son of God, hath not life

 

God couldn’t have put this any simpler or clear

He didn’t say he who has – church, has life
He who is a member of a denomination like Baptist or Lutheran has life
No matter how loud Muslims shout we must follow Allah
Or a Buddhist says we must embrace self awareness
Or a Catholic rolls – rosary and pray to Mary
Or Jehovah Witness say we must be converted to their religion or be annihilated
God said, you must except his Son to have eternal life

 

And – only thing that keeps people from coming to Christ for eternal life Is sin
They love their sin, more than eternal life in heaven
Glen Beck was having discussion about that new movie and book about the kid who died then went to heaven
Side note : the kid never actually died or stop breathing, they just claim that he did and went to heaven and came back
Everything they’ve said is built on a lie
But over – yrs we have heard countless stories of people who claimed to visit heaven
or Jesus appearing to someone or doing some miracle to prove he’s there

 

But get this, – one who made more sense on Glen Beck
than any of – so called Christians on his panel

was of all things a self proclaimed atheist
He said, and I quote: if there is a God, and he has already told all of you how and what you must do to go to heaven
Then why does he feel the need to keep doing things in order to prove he’s there?
Good point, that guy made more sense than – Christians

And their little panel didn’t have an answer either
God gave us a record of how to be saved and go to heaven
and then he says he will not be seen again until his return
Why isn’t faith, and faith alone, enough for Christians?

Because – fact is, many Christians actually reject – record that God has given us and call God a liar
They have accepted the witness of men & not – truth of God
But if you do accept Gods record and have received eternal life
look at next verse
Vs14
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, he hearth us

 

There’s absolutely nothing in this world worth more than our God hearing us
If your a child of God, you can talk to him right now and he will hear you
You can ask him anything, and he will not lie to you

He gave us this book and in it is complete truth directly from him
We have a truthful witness

 

Folks, Jesus is enough, hes all we need
This bible is enough, it’s all we need

 

We can actually live our entire lives, full of faith and blessings because of only these 2 things

 

God has made, having a relationship with him so simple and so complete and full of joy
If we have only these 2 things in our lives
If we have Jesus and we have a bible, we are complete
We have a greater witness & it’s our Lord Jesus hey cannot be saved

There’s people who will believe everything they read or hear, but yet they reject the witness of God

 
I talked with a guy in Ohio, who said he doesn’t believe everything that is being said about global warming
But he agrees that we are destroying our atmosphere cause look at the longer seasons, violent storms

He just repeated all the al gore talking points
But yet we had no hurricanes last year, especially here in Michigan

violent storms were actually less than other years
We were colder this yr, but yet we had very few blizzards

 
- Bible says, this is what God has witnessed to us, that no man can destroy the earth
Only God can take it apart and he can put it back together

 

Vs10
He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself, he that believeth not God hath made him a liar because he believeth not the record that God gave his Son

 

If you have trusted Christ as your Savior, – Holy Spirit indwells you

And he testifies to you about things that are true
Since we were born, we have had men witness to us and much of it has been untrustworthy and not true

 

But then it says if someone doesn’t believe God, who is the only witness of truth

 

They are actually calling him a liar

 
When God says this is the way it is, and someone says, I don’t believe it
Then they add to their other sins by saying God is a liar

 
God even gave us a record, our bible is Gods record of truth
And yet we have people today, who are doing everything in their power to destroy Gods record of truth

When schools teach evolution, their attempting to destroy Gods record of truth

 

Vs11 and this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life and this life is in his Son

 

Eternal life = to have Jesus Christ, there is no other way to live for eternity in heaven
That’s – gospel in a nutshell & yet we have millions who call God a liar and say they don’t need Christ
No one can have eternal life without Christ

 

Vs12
He that hath the Son, hath life, and he that hath not the Son of God, hath not life

 

God couldn’t have put this any simpler or clear

He didn’t say he who has – church, has life
He who is a member of a denomination like Baptist or Lutheran has life

 
No matter how loud Muslims shout we must follow Allah
Or a Buddhist says we must embrace self awareness
Or a Catholic rolls – rosary and pray to Mary
Or Jehovah Witness say we must be converted to their religion or be annihilated

 
God said, you must except his Son to have eternal life

 

And – only thing that keeps people from coming to Christ for eternal life Is sin
They love their sin, more than eternal life in heaven

 
Glen Beck was having discussion about that new movie and book about the kid who died then went to heaven
Side note : the kid never actually died or stop breathing, they just claim that he did and went to heaven and came back
Everything they’ve said is built on a lie

 
But over – yrs we have heard countless stories of people who claimed to visit heaven
or Jesus appearing to someone or doing some miracle to prove he’s there

 

But get this, – one who made more sense on Glen Beck
than any of – so called Christians on his panel

was of all things a self proclaimed atheist
He said, and I quote: if there is a God, and he has already told all of you how and what you must do to go to heaven
Then why does he feel the need to keep doing things in order to prove he’s there?

 
Good point, that guy made more sense than – Christians

And their little panel didn’t have an answer either

 
God gave us a record of how to be saved and go to heaven
and then he says he will not be seen again until his return

 
Why isn’t faith, and faith alone, enough for Christians?

Because – fact is, many Christians actually reject – record that God has given us and call God a liar
They have accepted the witness of men & not – truth of God

 
But if you do accept Gods record and have received eternal life
look at next verse
Vs14
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, he hearth us

 

There’s absolutely nothing in this world worth more than our God hearing us
If your a child of God, you can talk to him right now and he will hear you
You can ask him anything, and he will not lie to you

He gave us this book and in it is complete truth directly from him
We have a truthful witness

 

Folks, Jesus is enough, hes all we need
This bible is enough, it’s all we need

 

We can actually live our entire lives, full of faith and blessings because of only these 2 things

 

God has made, having a relationship with him so simple and so complete and full of joy
If we have only these 2 things in our lives
If we have Jesus and we have a bible, we are complete
We have a greater witness & it’s our Lord Jesus
