Quick Word

 I notice that SO MANY times people think and say "Christian/Christianity"  they are actually referring to "Catholics/Catholicism". 
Here is some truth for you to ponder, consider and meditate on: a true Catholic could never be considered a BIBLICAL Christian, and a BIBLICAL Christian could never be considered a Catholic. 
6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

Simple Truth and Understanding

John 8:44 
You are of your father the devil, and the  cravings and lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and did not remain in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

On this 2020 presidential election day, here is a simple truth and takeaway from the Obama/Trump presidencies, and the Trump/ Biden 2020 election:
Those who support/vote for Trump, this is the only truth that matters: How to keep power in the hands of the elite and white folk at any and all costs;
that fact being the proven case,  and to that end only, they are "christian" only in name, not in faith.  They are Christian because it has become this nations  controlling religion,  spiritual shackles to match the political, economic and military ones, all of which play a role in the end times (Revelation 13:11-18).

Christ is true, and Christianity is right regardless of how it has been used historically.

Message To The Apostate Churches

To Church 3:20  and all other apostate churches:
Have you forgotten it is the grace of God that saves us through Christ Jesus and not the gimmicks we think we bring to the table? 
You can whoop and holler all you want. You can be "Dr. Prophet Bishop Apostle Such N. Such" all you desire. The titles wont save or exalt you.
Your charisma and followers can't/won't save you, neither will your popularity or likability. 

You can yell "god is showing me, to show you what no one else is showing you". This doesnt make the message godly nor make a person a prophet or annointed.
If you preach and/or believe it's godly to love money, you are neither living nor walking according to the gospel: 

1Timothy 6:9-11  
9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. 
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 
11 But person of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

It's not godly to desire  material possessions more than we desire the things that benof our Heavenly Father. 

15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the vainglory of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

God is after your hearts and minds. 
Mattew 15:8, 22:37 
This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
 22:37  Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

If you preach and/or believe God's desires is for all believers in Christ to be rich, you are preaching according to your own lusts and not the gospel: 

1Timothy 6:5  
Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.

If you teach and preach a  mandatory tithe (which it seems all large Churches, rich or wanna be rich pastors insist on), you are not preaching the gospel: 

2 Corinthians 9:7  
Every man according as he purposes in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

"Fake It 'Till You Make It"?

"Fake it, 'till you make it." How many of us have heard this? Used it? Continue to use it? 
I remember being told this as a young preacher, when I first started out on the circuit. Nerves all jangled and such, this was of comfort then. "Dont let your insecurities get in the way of doing what you need to do" is another way of saying it. It was a pacifier meant to get us young preachers past the early phases of nervousness. 
Unfortunately, some of us never move past the cute sayings. Some of us have never grown up emotionally, spiritually nor mentally as Christians. What may have been ok and useful as babes in Christ, should not be dependent upon as we grow in the word and the Spirit of His might. For Christians, another road to hell is paved with holding on to silly and fadish sayings. Grow up past appearances, and mature into just being.
1Corinthians 3:2  
I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.

Hebrews 5:12-14  
12 For indeed, although you ought to be teachers by this time, again you have need for someone to teach you what are the elements of the beginning of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. 
13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is unacquainted with the word of righteousness, for he is an infant. 
14 But solid food is for the mature, for those because of their practice have their senses trained for the distinguishing of both good and evil.
