Origins and Destinies "You brood of vipers! Who warned you of the wrath to come?" (John the Baptist addressing the priests in front of the crowds, Matthew 3:7)

" I have made your face hard against their faces, and your head hard against their foreheads. Like adamant harder than flint I have made your forehead; fear them not, nor be dismayed at their looks, for they are a rebellious house...Go and say to them, 'Thus says the LORD'; whether they hear or refuse to hear." (Ezekiel 3:8-11)

"You are wrong, because you know neither the scriptures nor the power of God." (Jesus speaking to the priests, Matthew 22:29)

The Great Controversy

I'm not okay and neither are you.

"Woe to you churchmen!" Do you know how many times Jesus said that? Yet pews are packed with creatures telling each other, "I'm ok, you're ok." They can even listen to a Scripture reading but have no ears to hear the apostles constantly opposing the delusion of goats, nor can they bear to receive such correction. They even have "counselors" to tell them that any altercation or "war of words" is wrong and that unity is the name of the game. Perhaps they will believe that it's all just "splitting hairs" and go back to sleep in the familiar gloom. They know nothing of Christ's promise to those who are true to his Word, "You will be hated by all for my sake," and especially despised by churchmen. (Matthew 10:22; 24:9; John 15:18,19; 17:14)

True faith is, by definition, confrontational because it is grounded in the Word which shines light on darkness, and these two cannot co-exist in peace. The reward for holding to the truth is inevitable discrimination which will come from every direction of life: state, church, teacher, classmate, employer, workmate, peer and family member. The Master taught that his servants could expect no better treatment than he received, and that his real disciples would even have close relatives turn against them. (Matthew 10:34-39) If you are not experiencing this prejudice then it is because you are either completely silent or standing outside the truth, both fatal positions. From beginning to end the Word is in direct conflict with the world. The church does not want this; it wants acceptance, its feet comfortable in all camps. This will not stand on the Last Day. Then the pew-sitters will scream to hold each other’s hands, or the hand of a minister, or wave their creed or catechism. Then they will finally realize who has stand-alone faith, and who does not, and that the Word is indeed the ultimate in confrontation.

Have you been misled by the bogus teaching about a "gentle Jesus, meek and mild?" Perhaps you have been told God loves you no matter what? Time to wake up and spit out the drugs which your minister is only too glad to prescribe to keep you dozing in your pew and paying your tithe.
