Why? i have donated a serious amount of money for your works”. The Jews broke themselves off through unbelief (Rom 11:20). EddieJ. I believe religion to be one of the biggest scams and wastes of time in history. No Chance Without Jesus. This is God’s doing. But not so back at the time of David and the kings of Israel. 3.) Jesus is talking to the Jews in Matthew 24 and 25 not the church. Each lime Grace was returned to Faith,Faith was enriched. “God could ever accept you, you have gone to far.” Religion say’s you have to please God for him to accept you. 8:17). No, James connecting sin with death (I shared earlier) is the only biblical answer to this. As Jesus is in Heaven, so are we. When Job said, “The Lord gives and the Lord takes away.” The Holy Spirit of the Father is very careful to agree with Job’s statememt in the next verse by saying, “In all this (this statement) Job never sinned against God.” I’ve take myself out of the reasons why God blesses me. My pastor told us we were cursed if we didn’t tithe. The lies that affect you the most, however, are the ones you tell yourself. Obedience to God’s commands (faithfulness) is a fruit of the Spirit which is not for our benefit in the sense that it is our gifted and credited righteousness alone that secures every divine blessing and favor in life. If you don’t know what makes the new covenant new, you will preach mixture. If I had to sum up the change in my theology since I found grace it would be something like this: I used to believe that God was empowering me to live a holy life, sin less and do more. This shows us that even from the beginning our inheritance was a gift not of works. God love’s us even to this extreme. This one understanding when taken to its end exposes one of the greatest most deceptive lies that has ever been used against true worship. Please put this in a time machine and mail it to me a few decades ago. Second, thank you for reminding me why I so love the freeing and loving message of the gospel. There was a change. If a Woman Can’t be a Husband, She Can’t be a Pastor, Right. Claiming you can have faith without grace is like saying you can have air without oxygen. I was actually in a pew and heard this in person. Learned more truth in children’s church that day! Christians that should know the value of the elements involved with this ordinance, as they are taking it, yet something is wrong . 1Sam 8;10-18 then shows the rights of a king, he (the king) would become the “master” over all in the nation.. Now consider 2Sam 11:27, David was not accused of adultery (as he was the master) but rather the text says that he had done what was displeasing to God. The problem was I then put price tags on his gift. Once I found the true Gospel, my heart leaped and I found the elusive peace. Yes! He is certainly not talking to the world, as he is speaking to Christians. God said “prove me,” Malachi 3:10. I just don’t quote the Malachi scripture to God all the time now to remind him of his obligation to bless me. If Christ took my sins and stood as my substitute, then there is no wrath of God for me.”, 4. Basically, when Jesus was alive and talking to the people and His disciples He ministered from the Old Covenant scriptures. But, they “were chastened of the Lord, that they should not be condemned with the world,”v. My sentiments exactly. Sin is missing the mark, sin is sin and here Paul said it was dealt with by chastening judgement of God. We call things that are not as though they are until they become so. So fix your eyes on Jesus, get settled in his love, and let nothing move you. We believe and SPEAK!. Tom -no one is saying sin is not a problem in the believers life. ! 0 0. But Paul shared this with not only Jews but Gentile and it was part of the new covenant, or Paul would not have mentioned it. It’s the attitude of giving that counts. There is no self-effort in the most powerful love of God. But thank God I have been set free by His Grace and Truth. Bestselling author Matthew Kelly believes it is possible and in his latest book, The Biggest Lie, he explains how. You shared yourself that,; .”For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace,…. Stuff your feelings. I’d say so, it’s sad how many people have fallen for it. Can you explain why it’s impossible to trust God alone completely. 10.) How do you think Paul was able to maintain love for others when he faced so many hardships? so they end up thinking that Grace is like grease that allows you to follow the law. Just as you can oxygen without air but you cannot have air without oxygen so you can have grace without faith but you cannot have faith without grace. 10 mins ago. Not only that but we are not forgiven, healed or delivered from judgment because we “examine ourselves for sin”. He loves us so much..yes. Because if its a lie then it should have died out just like all the other false religions at that time. Believe in Jesus Tom -until you do you will be ceaselessly obsessing over endless minutia and you will have no rest or no peace inside and you will have little or no lasting joy. I am talking about the religion of the snake who said, “Do this and you will be like God.” The lies of religion are contemptible because they throw doubt on the good news of Jesus. Here is another… Religions are the best scams ever invented. Does it bother you that Biden is a strong believer in Christianity. Scripture never contradicts scripture. (Heb. 32. Being raised in the church, we think we have it figured out what it means to be a Christian. Member. 11:2). Remain in your Father’s embrace and you will never be seduced by the lies of dead religion. For this cause many are (1) weak and (2) sickly among you, and many (3) sleep.”, Paul is not saying “Take communion wrong and you’ll get sick and die.”, Hi Tom, I have been remembering the Lords death in the communion celebration with the church for fifty and eight years now in many cultures, nations and Christian denominations. dont worry if you cant make it. As much as I appreciate your list, I find that points 4&5 are not very convincing: apart for the horrible examples you gave (And I’m sadly sure many people said and will say those things) It seems that in point 4 you’re a bit out of context: at first you say that God doesn’t teach things with sickness, then you explain why God don’t send sickness to punish people after the new covenant. Jesus’ own personal limitless flawless faith – take that, infirmity! “(‭1 John‬ ‭5‬:‭16‬ NASB) As the hymn says, because of Jesus the wrath of God has been satisfied. The first person to produce a single tiny little piece of verifiable evidence for any god will become world famous and mega rich! The lies of religion are contemptible because they throw doubt on the good news of Jesus. No lies just people like you ridiculing Christianity! Here’s my top ten lies of religion: Jesus is seated at the Right Hand of the Father and as He is in Heaven, so are we on the earth! He overcame a weak worm of the dust mentality. It was massive but it didn't serve any purpose. God in His infinite Mercy, through the Holy Spirit enlightens us day by day as we trust and rest in Him. and like the other post/comment, how i wish theres a time machine so that this revelation may be given to me many years ago. Your ability to obey the ten commandments is a measure of how pleasing you are to God and a measure of the credibility of your faith This is why it’s not about having to give or even not having to give. Another lie is the popular claim that Jesus came to earth and began a new religion, separate from Judaism. His mood doesn’t change based on a whim or whether he had a bad day. Man has a free will and God would like us to willingly turn our requests over to Him so He can get to work on our behalf. I’m not even sure what “paying the price” would really involve but I’m pretty sure it’s beyond the reach of all but a few spiritual “superstars” and involves a LOT of religious sweat. You couldn’t be more right. No, the biggest lie ever is: God doesn't exist. Now Yeshua left from there and went away to the region of Tyre and Sidon. Johns inspired statement here is a conditional promise, just as the latter. All my blessings come from the cross. The goodness of God is revealed by the Spirit of Grace; the price tags came from my own understanding. The numbers do not lie: It took 110 years to see three Supreme Court cases challenging religious liberty, but only 80 years to litigate more than 75 more. I always wanted to know Him more; though deeply involved in a grace/performance ministry, for way too many years, my spirit was always discontent. Since every other religion is dead and not a threat to Satan,he resides in the Christian church. There is nothing, absolutely nothing we can do to make ourselves worthy outside of the Cross of Christ. Religion, on the other hand, keeps you bound with half-truths, bent-truths, and damnable lies. BELIEVE. You can’t preach Grace and Law they cancel each other out. Remember the gentiles were not aware of the Jewish law so they would not simply assume that tithing was still valid because they never practiced it. By Liam Roberts. But here are some lies you may have got told along the way. and what religion is the biggest lie ? insulting. 10:29 . Still have questions? We are not blessed because we give but because he gives. He is certainly not talking to the world, as he is speaking to Christians. It is wonderful when someone goes ALL IN and doesn’t hedge his bets. Barry, Just as the pharisees who followed Jesus while He walked on the earth, there are those who “follow” Jesus but never know Him. 9 mins ago. I believe tithing is still for new covenant, grace based believers. The question one must ask oneself is: Which God is God – God of Genesis 1 or Lord God of Genesis 2? But the fruit of the Spirit is for God (“This is to my father’s glory- that you bear much fruit.” ) and for our loved one’s benefit. We have too many “Christians” in church’s now that believe they are right with God, yet are living in sin. but what about the preachers asking wisdom? The author reveals that Egypt had a monotheistic religion, not one with a pantheon of gods, gives the evidence to explain the Exodus, traces the Old and New Testaments back to Egypt, explains why most of the characters in the … When Abraham asked God how he would know that he had inherited the land,God told him to bring him a goat,a lamb,a dove,and a pigeon and the land/inheritance would come to him little by little. This is because “That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith;” Ephesians 3:17 God doesn’t want to crush you, he wants to hug you and hold you and rejoice over you with singing, for you are the apple of his eye! A lie of the enemy. What religion offers the most truth ? I see these songs as an oppurtunity to spread the Gospel. Do that and you will raise a pathological naricissist! the grace is there to make you strong and keep trying. Tom- the “abiding” Jesus is talking about here as a condition to answered prayer was not referring to some labor or some effort or performance or behavior on the part of his audience ( the 12 apostles) . As those in Christ Jesus that have now no condemnation , also might be fulfilled with, “righteous requirement of the law”, who who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Can’t have one without the other! I believe the reason preachers continue to uphold the tithing lie is because they are afraid that if the truth be known they would be “out of business”. We are not “yet sinner” as that discribs a change, just as you mentioned Corinthians 5:17. Hello David, since we are not under the law, it is not required for us to tithe. No, its not automatic, there is effort, yet an effort, grace has provided and teaches, Titus 2:11,12. What I believe to one of the most deceptive lies religion has taught is that our sense of morality is more important than the principle of headship (1Cor 11: 3). For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. If one of the two is removed from the Chuch,it is always Grace that is removed and has been so from the beginning. Tom, God took your job because you were enjoying it too much. As Spurgeon said: “How shall the Lord punish twice for one offense? It is not we who preach the cross and the grace of Christ who trifle with and make light of sin . Judaism. There are a lot of others who have accomplished something in their life or had an achievement that changed the world or a network however no one can analyze to what Mother Teresa did in her lifetime. I Timothy 5:8 “But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” If you recall in the OT regarding tithing, most of the tithes were paid from excess or the spoils of war. He loves you because he is your Father. Because Satan doesn’t want us to posses our inheritance. They … I highly recommend “should the church teach tithing?” by Russ Kelly.it is the most in-depth,scriptural,book on tithing.You can just google it and read it online.Be blessed. No Job wasn’t theologically wrong when he made this statement. He has no reason to reside anywhere else. By his grace, though we fail, He will take our hand and rise us up again”. it is your privilege to give the best of what you have. Jesus died for you, so now you owe him [with worship, good works and tithings]. People who loved the pastor wouldn’t speak to me when they saw me in the street! Archived. Certainly not! Then it is a true representation of God. The preferential posture, therefore, is to be in a position to give rather than to be in the position of need, hence it is more blessed to give than to receive. Terry, I am a bit slow and after reading this and looking at the scripture, I missed Paul saying, “how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak,..” which does fit the horizontal thought you shared, great point! What I am against,is the prevalent teaching in churches that we all SHOULD be giving a tenth to the church.A tenth for someone who makes 2000 a week,is probably no big deal,as they still have quite a bit left for housing,car,groceries,savings….but for someone much poorer who maybe only makes 400 a week,a tenth is a huge amount,they probably cant afford a car or gas to put in it and forget about savings!It makes God a respector of persons which He isn’t.
