The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. -- 1Corinthians 2: 14 (NIV)
It is not surprising when carnal people behave like carnal people, even those in Christian leadership. The modern church is so compromised through the mega false teachings associated with the New Apostolic Reformation, the purpose driven church movement and the seeker friendly industrial complex that most of what is seen in media as Christian is an abomination. The enemy has done a masterful job of working with Christian leadership to advance the kingdom of darkness. This is not surprising to those who discern because the Bible warns us of a great end times falling away. It is still breathtakingly stupid to watch however as leader after leader employs schemes that are obviously demonic in nature. One such scheme is to get the church to be in perpetual offense. Not on perpetual offense beloved but in. The NAR teaches a strict dominionism that makes an idol out of America. Anything to save Sodom. You must understand that in the current model, the false church leaders have all of the power and money in this system. They have created cult of personality silo churches that care about protecting the system at all cost. This is very much like the Pharisees of old who rejected their own Savior when He walked among them. Why? Were His miracles not convincing enough? Hardly. The reason was that they had all of the power in the current system and Jesus was a threat to that.
Just like He is still a threat today. So the NAR infused leadership convinces Christians to loathe the very people they are charged with bringing the Gospel to! Forget the Westboro Baptist fools as they are extremes used by the devil to make us feel better about our lessened levels of self-righteousness and judgmentalism. Don't believe me? Go to Charisma News and you will see every other story is somehow tying God to America and bashing people in the world for not behaving better. Don't lose this point beloved because that is ultimately what they are complaining about. We can hide behind wedge issues and faux outrage but the bottom line is we feel they should behave like Christians even if they are not. Consider the key verses today as a reminder of instruction from God. The unsaved do not accept what is from God -- period. The unsaved consider what is claimed to have come from God as utter foolishness. They cannot understand it beloved because they do not have the indwelt Holy Spirit to discern for them. Cue the spirit of great offense within the church and soon we will all be posting memes and retweeting just how offended we are at the latest act of grievous persecutions leveled at the church today. Except they are really not persecutions. They are just the unsaved behaving like the unsaved. As if they simply do not understand the things of God; which they do not. Linked above a short article recently posted by Jennifer "Clever Calamari" Leclaire responding to the latest great offense she has taken and needs to share that we can all be as upset as she is that the world just behaved like the world again. Come let us reason together.
