|HAVING A FORM OF GODLINESS
BUT DENYING ITS POWER..
2 TIMOTHY 3:5
|A form can be any of the following
a shape, a kind of
or a visible appearance. This would be the clearest view of Christianity as it is so
called that we could expect in the days we presently live
just a shape of, a kind
of at its best a visible appearance of.
St Paul writes to his son in the faith and tells him of perilous times and perilous men, no doubt women are included here that is if womens libbers, the renegade Eves and the jezebels havent already excluded them from this quote under the clause of the goddesses of the Pentecostal prosperity and vanity movement of Australia.
Some would [the carnal of mind] even think that I would be a woman hater or male chauvinist pig, they would be just speculating / guessing in their ignorance. However, I will own to the title of .. lying devil hater.. whether that come in the form of a man, woman or child .2 Corinthians 11:14,15
I feel spiritually equipped, in form to deal with this warning written by the great apostle Paul . Paul means little.
Let us never go by appearances says brother Paul. Of course there is no real problem with ..appearing Godly but we must look a little closer in order to get to the root of the soul.. we do this by listening ..out of the heart the mouth speaketh, I am sure I will get an amen there ..
What comes out of the mouth includes what people write and those who they walk with .ref/men and women 2 Timothy 3: 2-4
What we have here is a man or a woman who has the appearance but no obedience to the word another way of putting that would be to say they deny the power thereof ..Luke 6:46
Thereof is in fact .the leading of the paraclete/holy ghost and nowhere in scripture do you find Him/the paraclete leading any other way except along the lines of the established canon. Jesus said that the comforter will guide you lead you into .all truth.
How many church leaders, congregations and professors of christianity are actually led by the Paraclete and how many deny Him/the power thereof?.. I dare say most are led by Pentecostal parakeets, you could place most of them in the tray called bandwagon ministers.
|APPEARANCE BUT NO OBEDIENCE|
| What is a bandwagon minister you
These men and women are they that get ear of something that sounds good, looks good and may even prove to be financially viable and they ride it all the way to the next deception. They proclaim they have come out from among the heretics and the Pharisees yet they themselves are building a similar house with minor renovations, yet still rooted in their past.
They still drastically search for good bits of their past associations and denominations only to find they are left red faced and disillusioned. Some are even brought to wrath when you put the finger on the Pentecostal pulse. Others, well they refuse to reply period. After all this is the safest ground they have till the next circus of deception passes through town.
Carnal men and women for centuries have sought solace in numbers, concrete establishments, monies, associations with the famous inside and outside the church structures and now find themselves in a spiritual hangmans noose and all because of their own selfish heart. Jesus told us all that if you want to do Fathers will He will allow you to know the correct doctrine/truth John 7: 17
Are you a bandwagon minister, church goer, waiting for the next charismatic circus to pass through town or are you just a faithful subscriber to the Charlatan catalog which tells you how to defeat the devil in 423 easy moves, via Visa Card.
Just pick up your cross friend, deny yourself of all the sin you are able to partake of and follow Him.. Romans 6:22
THE POWER THEREOF IS WAITING FOR YOU TO REPENT AND TURN FROM YOUR PET SINS THAT YOU KEEP IN THE CAGE CALLED APPEARANCE OF GODLINESS.
Perilous peoples, perilous times.
