Even Those With Good Intentions and That Go To Church Every Sunday
“For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.” -Matt 7:14 (NASB)
Do most Christians think that because they wear the label of Christian that this means they will automatically go to Heaven when they die? I believe this is a false teaching imposed by today’s false shepherds behind pulpits across the land. If it’s not from the lips of the once saved, always saved lying pastors it’s to the belief that God is all about love only and their mantra is – “A Loving God would not send people into hell“. Did you read the verse at the beginning of this post yet? Remember, Jesus said this!
The most hateful thing that a pastor or friend could do to another is to NOT tell them about hell and how people end up there. This applies 1000% to pastors, elders or anyone picking up the mantle of teaching God’s word. I sat under a respectable, kind and nice, well-meaning pastor for many years and he rarely (and I mean rarely) mentioned hell and directly confronted the members of his church with the stark reality of what it takes to end up there. Now this is extreme hate. If you find yourself in this situation, go to your pastor/s and ask them about it and then ask why they aren’t teaching it. If they try and skirt the issue or send you down a rabbit hole of other reasons and excuses, get out of that church!!!
“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. 14- For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.” -Matt 7:13-14 (ESV)
Don’t just assume you are saved cause you responded one time to an altar call and said the sinner’s prayer. This is false teaching again – no where in the Bible does it even mention this or this method of salvation. Being saved is a daily affair, a daily walk, daily prayer, daily dying to self, daily surrender to Jesus, daily confessing and repenting of your sin, you see being a Christian is tons more than our weak-kneed, teethless Christian churches and clergy spew from their fancy and ornate pulpits each week. If you are going to say a prayer and mean it then use Romans 10:9-10 as what you do and how you do it.
Being a Christian means living your life unto God and walking in His will. What is His will you may ask…? It’s contained in His word – The Holy Bible. But … do you make it a practice to read it daily? How much do you read it
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22- Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23- And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness..”-Matt 7:21-23 (NASB)
What I’m saying here today concerns eternity, you know, forever! Many of us suffer many issues and problems, I get it (me too). But eternity is forever. And the things you do here at this bus stop of this life will determine your final destination in eternity. Do you live for God, do you confess His Son as your Lord and Savior?
Many self-proclaimed Christians are suffering in hell right now because they were deceived by pastors (shepherds) that meant well, were nice, didn’t offend, seemed to care about you but never told you the truth about dying and your final disposition. They twist and hide the truth, the no-kidding truth, of the Gospel to promote church growth (empire building) at the cost of countless souls who will be lost in hell for eternity. Let me tell you friends, the false shepherds (hirelings – John 10:12) will pay dearly for deceiving their flocks when they stand before the Lord.
The verses I have included here are a wake up call and a call for truth to every person who claims to be a Christian. I don’t care what position you hold, how intellectual you are, how academic you may be, how much money you have, how secure you feel in your job, health, family or friends. I do care about where you are going once this temporary gig called life is up on earth. For you will carry no worldly status with you, or non of your accumulated stuff either. You (and I) will stand naked before Jesus and He will say well done good and faithful servant or He’ll say He never knew you and you will be ushered into HELL! This alone, these verses in Matt 7:21-23, should scare you to your core and cause you to reassess your life and what your relationship is with the Lord ASAP!
So bottom-line: as you finish reading this and with what you believe, profess and confess, where will your soul end up in eternity? With God in His home or tormented in the place miserable darkness and of endless flames? BPW
“And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: 12- And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. 13- Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 14- For many are called, but few are chosen.” -Matt 22:11-14 (KJV)
