Religion or Christianity by Doreen Penpraze

A religion is when someone goes to church religiously every Sunday knows the bible inside out, knowing every chapter, verse, but for most of these people that’s were Christianity ends. They don’t understand the words in the bible they see God as someone to fear and this has been passed down for centuries. They are usually unhappy people and sometime not nice people and wouldn’t lift a finger to help anyone. Were a Christian is someone willing to help anyone even if it meet they would miss going to church to help if it could not be avoided.

True Christianity is to have a personal relationship with God to read the word and understand that he is an Amazing, Almighty God, but he also wants us to see that he is a loving father. He wants us to obey him as a child would his/her father. God only wants the very best for us just as a loving father would and by reading, understanding the true meaning of the word in the bible and obeying his rules that are for our own good, we will become better people understanding, patient, caring, loving. You will know a true Christian by their happy everyday attitude towards live and people.

There are a lot of new churches today and some older ones with this view of God and it is growing rapidly, more and more people are returning to Christianity because of the change of attitude towards God seeing him for who he really is (A loving Father) and if you read the bible you will understand too. The new churches are not old and stuffy they are lively enjoyable places to be, enjoying the time of worship, fellowship and singing to music that inspires your soul.

We are all God’s Children but it is up to us to choose to be his child. God has promised us eternal life with him all he wants from us is to be a good witness to his word while we are on this earth and to love him with all our heart.

If you attend a church and you are not happy you may be in the wrong place, look around as there are thousands of church find one where you can be happy, don’t settle for second best as you will not grow in your faith if you don’t have a true understanding of God and support from other Christians. You need to be with people who love God and are good witness to the word of God.

  1. Hey brother, this has been a topic for me quite a bit lately.. and it’s a good one to discuss. I hope you don’t mind.. I’d like to toss my quick 2c out there.. well, I’m never quick.. but i’ll try to be. šŸ™‚

    I think each individual should carefully examine the situation.. be watchful of our internal war between the principalities of darkness and the Spirit. We should be very careful that we do not leave a church where God is speaking to us (which, at times, may make us not feel so good). Also, we don’t want to leave a church that may not be doing well.. God may need our help there. It should be God guiding, and most definitely not any emotions of the flesh.. If He says leave, we should leave… but if we’re not feeling all that good about it, we should be watchful and pray.. and let God speak.

    Sometimes, the flesh does not like what it is hearing and we will start to church hop in order to find a place where our ears are tickled. Scripture speaks of this.. I’ll find it and post it in a sec.. It’s glorifying the flesh. I’ve always said that if I’m in a place that gently sears my conscious, causes the flesh to feel uncomfortable, and the flesh does not like hearing the messages that are preached.. then I’m most definitely in the right place. We have to be careful here.. very careful.

    1/2 the Truth of God is that He loves us so so very much. The other 1/2 of the Truth is that we will perish without truly having Christ in our lives. When a church focuses mainly on one 1/2 of the truth or the other, it’s at the expense of the soul in my humble opinion. The full gospel should be preached, which means we should hear messages of love as well as messages that jolt the flesh, give us attitudes, stir up emotions, etc.

    I would be more concerned about a church that makes me feel all good and chirpy 100% of the time. I’m a sinner and the word of God will hurt and offend until there is nothing left to hurt or offend. But as I said, if that is all that is preached, then it’s going to push people away. If it’s Spirit led, it’s all good.. If the messages of the pulpit are touched by man because either: 1) Worried about offending people to keep the seats filled or 2) Judging people/condemning them, then the soul may be in trouble…

    We just gotta be careful here.. and examine the spirits.. We were taught –

    2Tim4:2 Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.

    2 Peter 2 is a very good chapter on this as well..

    Sorry for the length. This is a good good topic.. This is what was on my heart and had to get it out. Thanks brother

    In love,

    joseph
