The Enemy of God
By David J. Stewart
James 4:4, “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
The Bible is very clear in John 4:4 that anyone who is a friend of the world is God's enemy. This teaching is completely ignored in religious circles and by those who profess to know God.
I know a Catholic man who continually speaks about love, but he knows nothing of God's love. To most people, love means sinful compromise and avoiding any type of confrontation, whether it be over a doctrinal issue or a moral matter. Love is not tolerance of wickedness in society.
I hear so many people saying that religion has killed more people in war than all other reasons combined. Let us clarify the matter Biblically... “FALSE RELIGION” has caused more killing in wars than all other reasons combined. Christianity does not cause preemptive strikes against innocent nations. Proverb 20:18, “Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war.” America and coalition forces invaded Iraq on the basis of false witness. No Weapons of Mass Destruction were ever unearthed. This was a violation of the 9th Commandment in Exodus 20:16, “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.” God does not approve of a war based upon false witness and theft.
There is no middle ground with God, you are either His friend or His enemy. It's one or the other. Jesus taught in Matthew 6:24, “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” The self life has no place in true Christianity. Women who pursue careers over homemaking are God's enemies (1st Timothy 5:14-15). God never created a woman who wasn't made for the purpose of being a HELP MEET for man (Genesis 2:18). America has gone to Hell because its women have murdered 50,000,000 babies, pursuing selfish careers instead, and have forgotten the God of the Bible.
I heard a young woman say that she KNEW it was God's will for her to audition for the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders. No Mame, you are woefully mistaken and wrong. God does not want you to dance around nearly naked like a lascivious whore, causing people to lust. This is the sinful, warped and selfish mentality of many Americans today. A pretty woman can roll around on the floor in lewd lingerie to make a country music video, like Fearless by Taylor Swift, and then still be praised as a good role model on the homosexual Ellen DeGeneres show. They are God's enemies.
To be God's friend means receiving the love of the truth and obeying God. I know a famous musician in Hawaii, a Buddhist, who travels around the world. Everywhere he goes he expresses his frustration over war, killing and the lack of love in the world. He blames religion. He views Bible-believing Christians who preach the intolerant Word of God as bigoted, blind to the truth and filled with hatred. He is still hellbound in his sins and very conceitedt.
The Bible is intolerant concern salvation, i.e., it's Jesus Christ or Hell (John 14:6). To an unbeliever, the gospel of Jesus Christ is offensive (1st Peter 2:8) and foolishness (1st Corinthians 1:18, “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God”). The wicked refuse to believe the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is foolishness to the sinful world. Ah, but unto us who believe, the gospel is the power of God unto salvation (Romans 1:16), and Jesus Christ is precious (1st Peter 2:7).
