Why Aren't You Upset Over Sin?
By David J. Stewart
One of the greatest sins amongst Christian believers today is that we don't get more angry over sin. Every professed Christian should be outraged by the evil abortion industry. Every believer who names the name of Jesus Christ ought to be flabbergasted over the evils of same-sex marriage. Every born-again believer should be alarmed and upset over the teaching of the lies of evolution to children in government public schools. If you're not upset, why not?
Why are most professed Christians so complacent, apathetic and indifferent concerning sin? One reason is the wicked television. The Bible tells us why in Romans 7:13, “Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.” The Bible makes sin “exceedingly sinful.” Whereas the Bible SENSITIZES people to the awfulness of sin, television DESENSITIZES people to sin.
This is exactly what has happened in America. Men and women have hardened their hearts against God because of love for sin. Since 1973 over 53,000,000 human lives have been murdered in the womb. So tragic! After decades of legalized abortion, drunkenness, Bible-butchering, teaching the lie of evolution in the schools, lewdness and nudity, pornography and a multitude of other destructive evils, Americans are now readily embracing same-sex marriages, illegal wars and a Police State. God pity this wicked nation!
Most people today (sadly this includes Christians) don't get upset over sin. It's no big deal to most people. Who cares? The insane notion that everybody has a “right” to do whatever they want is unbiblical. No one has a “right” to be immoral. If Christians would spend more time walking with God by abiding in the Scriptures, they'd be in agreement with God (Amos 3:3).
Rocker Ozzy Osbourne says on his album, DIARY OF A MADMAN, that Rock 'N' Roll is a RELIGION and a LAW. Rock music has changed our culture in America from one of respect, modest dress and decency, into a cesspool of iniquity saturated with rebellious brats, immoral sex and substance abuse. Yesterday's rebellious youth are today's evil politicians, judges and leaders in society. And today's lesbian, lewd and idolatrous youth will be our captors in a brutal Police State over the years to come. Jesus foretold of the time when Christians will be executed for their faith (John 16:2). The unsaved world hates Christians (John 15:19). Don't expect any love, sympathy or help from the wicked world, whose god is their fat belly...
Philippians 3:18-19, (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.”
This passage of Scripture refers to most people today in America... “whose god is their belly.” Our nation's glory is our shame in Hollywood, Walt Disney and Las Vegas. We are a rebellious and stiffnecked people. Our end will be destruction. Most people stopped caring a long time ago because of the deterioration of our country. Whether it be bowing to a statue of the Catholic Virgin Mary, being infatuated with a brand new car, or idolizing one's favorite Rock star... it's all the sin of IDOLATRY! America is an idolatrous nation. So many people worship their cars. All they think about is their precious car. It's just a bunch of plastic and metal!
Colossians 3:5 says that covetousness is idolatry!!! Idolatry is anything that is more important to a person than God. Anything can become a person's idol god. That's why Philippians 3:19 says their god is their belly (stomach). They live to eat, drink and party (Matthew 24:37-38). God hates that kind of pathetic attitude from the do-nothing crowd, the whiners and complainers, the deadbeats who are carnally-minded and reprobate.
Spiritual Wickedness In High Places Ought To Make Us Upset
Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi is worth an estimated $58,000,000. She's 72-years old (as of 2012) and is the richest person in congress. Pelosi is a traitor to America! She's part of the criminal globalist elite who are selling America into total slavery. Pelosi has consistently voted in support of Israel on everything. The Israeli lobbyists in America are criminals.
This has nothing to do with anti-Semitism; but rather, elite wealthy globalists who have through financial racketeering, bought up the newsmedia and usurped illegal control over our Federal Reserve system and economy. The globalists are expanding their global empire. They control the public through newspapers and television networks. We've been lied to so much that we don't need “change we can believe in”; but rather, change we can see right in front of our eyes.
She protected George W. Bush from being impeached for lying about weapons of mass-destruction (WMD's) in Iraq. Pelosi betrayed her oath of office. They laugh with arrogant smiles at their elite parties; but God will wipe that smirk off their faces very soon (Isaiah 13:11). Do you think God is not angry over all the lying, stealing, torture, cover-ups and murdering? God is slow to anger, but during the Tribulation this world will find out just how angry God is.
People are going to jail for not having a dog license, while Wall Street criminal bankers at Goldman Sachs continue to steal and loot trillions-of-dollars from U.S. taxpayers and homeowners. It's repulsive and evil! You can steal trillions-of-dollars if you're Goldman Sachs and get away with it; but some poor guy with a dingy mutt goes to jail if he doesn't have a $10 dog permit. Hell is going to be hot enough! 2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9 says that God is going to personally pour out His vengeance upon the wicked with flames of fire for all eternity. Hebrews 10:31 says that it's a frightening thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi also voted against keeping the Ten Commandments displayed outside courtrooms. Despite her mud-slinging propaganda of China's abuses, Pelosi is a big supporter of China—a brutal Communist police state dictatorship and blueprint for America's bleak future. Despite the intentional saber-rattling and mud slinging in Washington D.C., Pelosi and the rest of the globalist cartel are best of buddies and a big gang of thieving criminals. Pelosi has doubled her wealth from insider trading. These people abuse their power and then pervert justice to get away with it.
She voted for the Patriot Acts. She totally supports homosexuality and is a big supporter of same-sex marriage. In 1996 Pelosi voted against the Defense of Marriage Act, and in 2004 and 2006, she voted against the proposed Federal Marriage Amendment, which would amend the United States Constitution to define marriage federally as being between one man and one woman, thereby overriding states' individual rights to legalize gay marriage. Pelosi is a dangerous woman and no friend to liberty, America nor Christianity. She has voted in favor of gay rights continually.
As a Roman Catholic, Pelosi is not far from the gated community of Hell where the pope and all devout Catholics are going to spend eternity. Only a fool trusts in religion (the arm of man) to save them. Jeremiah 17:5, “Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.” The sacraments of the Catholic church are a road to damnation in Hell. Salvation is not found in religion; but in the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ Who died, was buried and rose again for our sins. If you add the 7 sacraments and good works to faith alone, then you are going to Hell forever. This includes Nancy Pelosi and all Roman Catholics! I say this kindly, but sternly as it is THE TRUTH! Ephesians 2:8-9 expose the Catholic church as a fraud.
Congress is out of control. Of 535 members of congress, only 40 voted against the treasonous NDAA law. UNBELIEVABLE! You should be outraged over NDAA!!! It permits the government to make any U.S. citizen disappear, without a right to an attorney nor due process of a court trial. This is what happened in Stalin's Soviet Russian gulag work camps!!! You got into a taxi and were never seen nor heard from again! It is now the law of the land in America (since President Obama signed it into law on December 31, 2011) and I'm mad about it. If you're not, then you're cuckoo!
It's sad that hardly anyone cares about the victims of 911. Over 200 American citizens leaped to the death 100-stories below when they hit the concrete. Some of the bodies landed on the fireman, killing them instantly. It was tragic, watching people commit suicide to escape the intolerable flames from the engulfed floors below. Over 200 fireman were murdered on 911. 2,745 Americans lost their lives. But who cares? Thankfully, God cares and those wicked men and women who orchestrated the 911 attacks won't be able to leap out a window to escape the torments of the fires of Hell.
Those 2,745 innocent people on 911 were murdered by Saudi Arabians working with the Bush administration, who orchestrated everything. No one has ever answered Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney's question to Donald Rumsfeld, asking if the war games on the morning of 911 were ever announced in advance to anyone. The war games were a cover for the terrorist attacks. That's how they pulled it off so easily. When told that the Air Force was going to intercept plane two which was headed for Trade Tower two, Vice President Dick Cheney told NORAD to stand-down. They wanted those planes to collide with those buildings.
And besides, it wasn't the planes that brought the Trade Towers down... it was bombs planted throughout the buildings. George W. Bush's younger brother, Marvin Bush and a family cousin headed up an Electronic Security company that oversaw the Trade Towers two years prior to 911. You couldn't make this stuff up! Why are people so dumb to blindly believe everything which the lying newsmedia tells them?
As far as I'm concerned, those 2,745 people murdered on September 11, 2001 were all my family. This is what the Bible teaches. This is “The Golden Rule” as taught in Matthew 7:12, “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” If that were your loved ones, then you would care. It is so typical of this wicked generation not to care about others. I care about what really happened on 911. I've viewed hundreds of articles, videos, documentaries and evidences over the past 10-years concerning 911. Only a complete idiot would refuse to see that 911 was an INSIDE JOB!!!
The Bible plainly teaches in Ephesians 6:12 that our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against spiritual wickedness in HIGH PLACES. All of the evils destroying America today are operated from high places. The Federal Reserve System is evil. It is the enemy of every American!!! Every preacher should cry aloud against the wickedness of the Federal Reserve Banksters! God hates the Federal Reserve because they rob people, by dishonestly printing money out of thin air and lending it to Americans at interest. This is a criminal system that is rigged to leave millions of Americans without a chair when the music stops.
For a solid understanding of the criminal Federal Reserve system, please watch, Banking: The Greatest Scam On Earth. By charging interest on money, there's never enough money to pay it all back. Thus, someone ALWAYS loses! Tens-of-millions of Americans are losing their homes because of this evil plot. Wall Street bankers are financial scientists. It all began in 1913 with the Federal Reserve Act at Jekyll Island.
I sometimes feel like I'm the only one who gets upset over all the evils in the world today. I know that this is not true. I know that there are many more angry people who haven't bowed to the New World Order. Elijah thought that he was the only Christian left (1st Kings 18:22) who hadn't bowed his knee to Baal (Canaan's false god). The Lord told Elijah that He had 7,000 more men who refused to bow to Baal (1st Kings 19:18). Amen!
I love what Elijah said to the people in 1st Kings 18:21, “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.” How long halt ye between two opinions? Oh, listen my friend, the only opinion that truly matters is God's opinion as taught in the Bible. Psalm 119:105, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
The Devil's Crowd Cares More Than Most Christians
The Devil is recruiting followers these days, who identify themselves by flashing the El Diablo (I love Satan) hand-sign in public. Satan's crowd is proud to flash their demonic hand-signs, while Christians continue to hide their light for Christ under a bushel. 2nd Corinthians 4:3, “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost.” The next Verse in 2nd Corinthians 4:4 teaches that Satan is the god of this evil world and BLINDS the minds of people to prevent them from being saved. If we fail to preach the gospel, it is the unsaved who will pay the consequences and we'll have their blood on our hands when they go to Hell forever (Revelation 20:11-15).
Ezekiel 3:17 and 33:6, “Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. ... But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.”
Every believer is a watchman for the Lord. 1st Corinthians 3:6-10 teaches that all believers are laborers together with the Lord. If we don't take action, then who will? If we don't care, then who will? If we don't fight against evil, then who will? If not us, who? If not now, when? If not here, where?
Most people are unsaved and followers of Satan (going around like Rachel Maddow and Bill Maher flashing hand-signs). I'd expect wicked unsaved people not to get upset over sin and evil; but it's a shame that God's children don't care. Granted, most religious people have never truly been saved. They have churchianity without Christianity. These are your apostate churches who embrace abortion, lesbianism and idolatry as tolerable behavior in church. God doesn't tolerate sin and neither should we as His children.
Jesus prophesied that in the End Times people will become calloused and cold-hearted because of all the iniquity (unpunished evil). Everywhere we turn these days, evil is thriving and unpunished. We read in Proverbs 11:21, “Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.” God sees the evil rulings of the Supreme Court. No one is higher than God. God is the true supreme Judge over the universe.
The biggest sin of our generation is that Christians don't get upset over sin. The last generation also failed to speak out against sin, and the generation before. Consequently, each succeeding generation continues to wax worse and worse with wickedness. The only reason why evil has prevailed in America is because not enough God-fearing Christians care to fight against evil, crime and treason.
I am so glad that I'm on the winning side in Christ Jesus. I've been born-again!!! It's solely by HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS (Christ's imputed righteousness) that I am going to Heaven. We are just flesh-covered skeletons my friend. Think about that. I sometimes picture everyone as skeletons, because that is what we really are... the dust of the earth! Ecclesiastes 12:7 teaches that God gives a spirit to each life that He forms in the womb (Jeremiah 1:5). That spirit returns to God Who gave it upon death, and then the judgment (Hebrews 9:27).
I am upset every day over evil. Psalm 7:11 says, “God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.” We should be angry every day concerning sin and unrighteousness, just like God is. Amos 3:3 says that two cannot walk together except they be agreed. That's why James 4:8-9 tells us to mourn, be sad, and be afflicted over the evil condition of the world. If you want to draw near to God, then you must help carry His burden for OTHERS. You just need to trust on Jesus' name to be saved; but if you want to please God with your life, then you must get out of the self life.
Philippians 2:6 teaches us to have the mind of Christ. The Verse before (Philippians 2:5) tells us what that frame of mind is, that is, to look upon the things of others. Whereas most people are living selfishly for themselves, the Bible teaches for us to think and live for others in Christ Jesus. It simply means including others instead of just ourselves in our thinking. In particular it means to help the poor and suffering...
Matthew 25:34-46, “Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.”
At a glance, taken by itself, this Scripture passage may seem to teach works salvation. If we help the poor and visit those in prison and clothe the naked and give drink to the thirsty, is that the way to eternal life? Carefully notice in Matthew 25:46 that the Bible says “the RIGHTEOUS” will go into life eternal. Romans 4:5 tells us how to obtain the righteousness of God...
Romans 4:5-6, “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God IMPUTETH righteousness without works.”
There you have it! A man's faith in Jesus Christ is COUNTED for righteousness. This is called “imputation,” which we just read in Verse 5. God “imputeth righteousness without works.” This one phrase exposes Roman Catholicism, Seventh Day Adventism, Mormonism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism and Lordship Salvation as lies of the Devil. Biblically, we are saved by Christ's imputed righteousness (2nd Corinthians 5:21).
So what does Matthew 25:34-46 mean? It is important to understand that the Bible always closely associates a changed life with salvation. This does not mean that a changed life is required to be saved; but rather, that a changed life is the result (fruit) of being saved. Granted, not all believers surrender their lives to Christ, but God expects it from every child of God. In other words, no one has God's permission to sin, but we are safe in Jesus Christ if we are saved. Ray Comfort is a false prophet who teaches in THE EVIDENCE BIBLE that a person is NOT SAFE just because they have faith in Christ.
