Just a thought towards Christians being lead astray.

I would just like to say that I like a good Christian message as well as the next Christian, probably even more so. However, and in this case, a However is necessary.

As soon as I see The Old Testament being quoted, Chapter and Verse, and those quotes are not being used as a "Lead-In" to something that happened in the "The New Testament", then I need to be aware that their message may not be a Christian message at all, and I need to relate the message to what Jesus said in:

 

Matthew 7:15 *Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

 

7:16 *Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes or thorns, or figs of thistles?

7:17 *Even so, every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit.

7:18 *A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

7:19 *Every tree that does not bring forth good fruit is cut down and cast into the fire.

7:20 *Wherefore, by their fruits you shall know them.

(And the Apostle, Paul, warned: “For the time will come when they, (Christians), will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own desires shall they provide teachers with messages that they want to hear;

And they shall turn away from the truth” (2 Tim. 4:3–4).

 

So, you see, it is possible to provide a Christian message without Old Testament quotes of war, hate, and bigoted actions.

Thanks for reading and may God provide a better tomorrow for us all.
