I hadn’t seen my best friend in a long time. We met today and had lunch at a familiar place which in reality is nothing but godlessness and sinful. It was at a “church,” of all things, but today’s apostate churches are as common as cornflakes these days. What bothers me is that I bought my lunch from this place, knowing that doing so, I was in fact supporting its evil agendas.
Now you say, “What’s the big deal? It was only food.” It was also liquid devil, a.k.a., BEER, which is a sin in and of itself. You see, the purchase of that food (and beer) will help support this “church” because they “need the money,” or so my friend said. Need it for what? So they can maintain their lavish gold idols and expensive programs? So they can go on teaching false religion to those who reject Christ and the Gospel? Also, my friend told me that they used to hold this event only once a year at the beginning of fall, but now they hold it twice! Did I hear “cha-ching”?
I’m not familiar with what this religion teaches (and don’t want to be, no thanks), but the fact is if you’re not supporting and praying for the true church (NOT Catholicism, but the church of the Lord Jesus Christ, blood-bought and saved), then you are bidding God speed and approving of the false religions’ idolatry, hated of Jesus Christ, and blasphemy. My friend said they made $30,000 last year. Have you ever seen that much money raised for a Bible-believing church?? I haven’t!
If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, (the doctrine of the true Gospel, 1 Cor. 15:3,4) receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. 2 John 1:10, 11
That means if I put even one penny toward any false religion or prophet, I am doing the same thing that heathen religionists do, bowing to false idols and spitting on the God of the Bible. Oh Lord, forgive my shortsightedness and ignorance!
There are many false religions in the world today. I won’t say which one was the culprit in my plight, but my Bible says in 2 John 1 not to partake of their evil deeds. That means, buying food from them when they’re lying and saying they need money but they really have more money than they know what to do with. By the way, my friend said the priest cusses a lot (takes God’s Name in vain) and acts like an outright fool. Need I say more? Let me just put it this way, this “church” is NOT a Bible-believing church. I wouldn’t want to be in their shoes at the judgment!
You may think I’m some kind of nut for bringing this up, and it may seem trivial to you, but the truth needs to be told. Let me tell you, God’s Word is NOT trivial, nor is it to be taken lightly. I’ll gladly be a NUT for Jesus Christ, because I know I’m screwed on to the right bolt!!
