Today's Christian thought: Wednesday February 11th, 2004
One of the nicest things about preaching on the web and identified as a preacher for men, is that I get to be honest and say things that are on my mind. Today's title is a good example, Horse Dung. Well, while horse dung is really much more polite than that term used by secular society, it still is a term you are unlikely to hear at Sunday services.
But, horse dung is the best way to describe many of your comments regarding the last two thoughts. You seem upset that I am judging the Roman Catholic church to be a cult. You're saying things like, "pastor you are to judgmental." "Pastor the Lord tells us to judge not." Etc. Horse Dung!!!
I guess what really has me so upset about these ridiculous comments is that it has been only a little over three weeks since we did Matthew Seven. (http://www.christianpatriot.com/01_19_2004.htm), Monday January 19th, 2004 Judge not.
We are going to jump back and look at Matthew seven where the Lord talks about Judge not. We should be doing Matthew seventeen today, but we need to go back.
Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, 'Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye;' and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's (Matthew 7:1-5 ACP/KJV)
The lessons of Matthew Seven, regarding judging, are these: Judge as you want to be judged, judge righteously by using God's Word, the Holy Bible, not the fickle political correctness of the day. For we see that we are not to be hypocrites in our judging, using one standard to judge ourselves and another standard to judge others.
Gentlemen, I have used the Word of God and His word to judge the Roman Catholic church, by what standards are you judging me? Show me where I have judged in error, using God's word, not how you feel. Your feelings are dung, God's word is what counts. Your feelings can be the result of last nights pepperoni pizza, God's word endureth for ever as does His Word.
As I have refused to read trash like the DeVinchi Codes, so will I also refuse to see the Roman Catholic cult recruiting tool put out by Mel Gibson. You do what you want, but remember this:
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: (Hebrews 9:27)
Judge me by the measure you want to be judged by, not by the feelings of world. Do you have so much time on your hands? Have you read the Bible so many times that you have mastered it and have the time to waste by going and seeing movies like Passion and read books like the DeVinchi Code? Good for you, for I have neither the time nor have I mastered the Bible yet.
Pray for my friend Mac, pray for Rush and Michael Savage. While the Lord does not need the platforms and audiences that Rush and Michael have, they, Rush, Michael and their audiences need the Lord.
Pray for the President, pray for Attorney General John Ashcroft, pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
All Scripture quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, except when done by a guest, is from the ACP/authorized 1611 King James Version. The words in red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
