Before we attempt to answer the question, “Will Christianity be classified as a mental illness,” it’s important to understand that not everyone who calls upon the Name of Christ is cut from the same cloth or holds to the same doctrine. As classic Christianity drifts to the left of center it looks and acts more like the world of fallen humanity every day. Most in this large group gladly accept the label placed upon them individually as suffering from some form of mental illness needing the counsel and medication supplied by the fallen world. In time, it has become so accepted by the local church that psychiatrists are asked to teach from their pulpits and even train their counselors in the proper methods of counseling. Most so-called biblical counseling is so integrated with the techniques of psychiatric counseling, it’s difficult to see the difference, other than an occasional quote from the Bible. This unholy wedding has already taken place between the psychiatric dogma established by the fallen world and the biblical doctrine of the local church to produce a new man for the modern age. This new man is no longer subject to the doctrine of his church but is now held accountable by the new teachings of the fallen humanity that will affect every area of his social-economic life.

For the first time in world history, there is a multitude of blind guides in every segment of secular society and religious life promising to guide you into an enlightened truth. With all these guides in our world today we are forced to ask the question, “Which one has eyesight to see the whole truth?” To be partially blind to the truth, or mixing truth with a lie, still makes you a blind guide leading your followers into the pit of inevitable consequences of following a lie. A true word from Jesus Christ is not to let these blind guides overcome you or cause you anxiety (See Matthew 15:14). With God’s help, we can confront all these lies from every source in both society and religious life as they are brought before us through listening or reading. This is possible my dear friends, if we truly hide God’s Word in our hearts and learn how to listen to the indwelling Spirit. When we do this, we will be able to expose and confront every lie. We will also be able to free those who have been taken captive to follow the lies of the enemy. Continue reading Are You Following a Blind Guide?
If you could write one more article, or make one last speech, or record one last video for mankind what would you say? More importantly, what would God want to say through you for all of mankind? What would be His final Word to mankind? I believe He would simply and very powerfully say, “you can’t do it.” What? You cannot really change mankind. All of your laws, all of your grandiose teachings from your professors of higher learning, and, all of your well-thought-out peace deals will not change mankind. All of your psychiatrist, psychotherapist, psychologist and all of your pleading, counseling, and social programs will not change mankind. Finally, all of your religious teachings will not even change mankind. Only one thing will. Only transformation in Jesus Christ through faith will ever completely change mankind from the inside out. Only transformation in Christ will change an undisciplined beast full of lies and deceitfulness into a beautiful new creation full of love, truth, and righteousness. Here’s the question, “is the world still trying to change you or are you being transformed in Christ?” Before you answer that question let’s take a closer look. Continue reading The Final Word to Mankind
As we approach the end, we need to know, which truths we are willing to be persecuted for, even to death if necessary. We cannot wait until it happens before we decide. Let’s be clear, your persecutors will typically give you an opportunity to recant of your strongly held beliefs and accept their false religion or heretical beliefs. If you refuse to recant then you will be hated, shunned, or persecuted. We must prepare now by being fully committed to what we believe in, knowing that it is the irrevocable truth from God’s Word. Moreover, our firmly held beliefs should have a direct correlation with our salvation and its process from beginning to end. If we don’t have a firm grip on what we believe, then it will be easy for Satan and his demonic host to lead us into error and eternal damnation. This will not be an exhaustive study of everything in which we as Christians should believe but will only examine the pillars of our belief system that must not be recanted of, even if we must face a cruel and untimely death. You will soon discover the three topics that will be discussed are already under attack by the unbelieving world. Continue reading On Which Truths Are You Willing to Die?
Clearly, the Spirit is speaking, even in the last days, but very few take the time to hear His voice. This can be primarily explained in one statement, “we are staying too busy and allowing interruptions during our quiet time.” Satan and the world are working overtime to keep you so busy, and if perchance you try to listen to the Spirit, you are interrupted. The Spirit is speaking the truth in the last days but it’s falling on deaf ears. The Bible says, “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches” (Revelation 3:22). We, as true believers in-Christ are the Church, contrary to what label is placed upon the building often referred to incorrectly as the church. God has something to specifically say to you and perhaps to the rest of His beloved children, who typically meet in your same geographical area, either in your State or Country. We don’t serve a mute God. God spoke the creation into existence and is busy now speaking to you, His new creations in Christ. So, as God’s true Church, how can we have ears to hear what the Spirit is saying. Let’s learn together how to listen. Continue reading The Truth is Falling on Deaf Ears
