Someone You Know May Be A Devil In Disguise

[2 Corinthians 11:14-15] "And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their actions."

Some of the biggest freaks - and some of the biggest whoremongers are in the Church. This is not a guess, this is a FACT!

If you're a Christian who's trying to live right, you owe it to yourself to not be naive and to be completely aware of the different personality types that are in church today.

The church is like a sheep's pen. It's where the sheep gather and congregate to do sheepy things. But where there's sheep there's bound to be predators. And predators today have gotten smart.

Church sheep attract church wolves. And just because they don't look or act wolfish doesn't mean they're not!

JUST CHECK FOR THEIR WOLFISH WAYS BEHIND THAT SHEEP FUR:

1. Showing slackness when it comes to living out an authentic salvation experience.

2. More worldly acting than they are Christian. In fact, they're so worldly that you wouldn't know they were a Christian unless they directly told you. There's no other identifying behavior that connects them with the saints. These would be your believers who are still running out and getting tatted up - still attending secular music concerts - still drinking and getting high. And when challenged on these obvious sinful practices, they'll pull out the 'judge not' card. Or they'll say that Jesus places everything under the blood, therefore there's no need for them to stop sinning. I call these 'Christian sinners' (and yes, that's an oxymoron).

3. Mixing of Christianity with Hinduism, Buddhism or New Age beliefs.

4. The use of phrases such as 'judge not' and 'God knows my heart.'

5. Always the victim of someone or some church that 'did them wrong.'

6. Acting as if they're too holy or too spiritual to be bothered with the rest of us mere Christian mortals.

7. Claims to be saved yet has a very elementary understanding or very little knowledge at all of holy scriptures. (How you gon' claim to love God - yet hate His word???)

8. Goes to church every time the church doors are open - yet continuously living in sexual sins, won't stop fornicating, cheats on their spouse with other church wolves (members), masturbates without guilt, dabbling in porn, etc. ***People like this are really dangerous, because they've been thoroughly inoculated against God's saving power, and are virtually guaranteed to bust hell wide open when the time comes. Steer VERY clear of such wolves in sheeps clothing - lest you find yourself on that bus trip to hell along with them!

I could write an endless list here. Perhaps you can even think of a few to add in the comments stream. Bottom line is, just because they claim to be saved doesn't mean they have been.

I warned you before and I'll keep doing it:There are many demons on assignment hiding out among the saints! And it behooves you if you're serious about your salvation in Christ to know who's on God's team and who's not. How can you tell the difference? It's simple:

"Beware of false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thisles? Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit." Matthew 7:15-17

Always check for their fruit! That's how you will recognize them.

Does peddling crap books count as bad fruit, Mackie?

Even Christians make mistakes and stumble sometimes, you know. No one is perfect. If someone tells you they're a Christian, you should believe them unless you see them they scream "AGH, *beep* JESUS!!!" in front a crowd of Christian Rock fans or something like that.

Instead, you believe that any Christians who are even a little worldlier than you are little demonic minions bent on dragging as many True Christians as possible to Hell with them.

How sad is that?

Oh yes you are,

@creativerealms

What about shilling ebooks?


Well, that's about all they're worth:



And considering how I found* my first new £1 coin which looks like a bimetallic £2 equivalent of the old pre-decimalisation 'Thruppeny Bit' (3d), and Shillings ceased to be legal tender decades ago, that's how much said e-books are worth; and we give as many e-fucks for such.

And considering II how 'Thruppeny Bit' is Cockney Rhyming Slang for 'Tit', then that perfectly describes what Peterbilt Minor is.


*- Twas during my travels to meet my best friend earlier today; at Clapham Junction, waiting for a connecting train to Guildford, I bought a drink from a vending machine. The change emerged into the coin reject tray, and amongst such was said new £1. Presumably inserted by a previous user, then rejected because the machine's slot wasn't programmed to recognise these new coins.

Yeeeah, in the context of that whole passage, you also get things like "blessed are the peacemakers."

I'm guessing he wants to overlook that part...

You just eliminated 99% of those who claim to be Christian at this point in time, including yourself. You guys are always MUCH too holy to bother with the rest of us "worldly" people...

"Some of the biggest freaks - and some of the biggest whoremongers are in the Church. This is not a guess, this is a FACT!"

No argument there: see Bakker, Haggard, Swaggart, Duggar...

"because they've been thoroughly inoculated against God's saving power,"

You do know that God is supposed to be A: omnipotent and B: Satan's direct superior. So how does that work?

"There are many demons on assignment hiding out among the saints!"

On assignment? So they're literally Punch Clock Villains?

1+2. Drumpf is a wolf, apparently…
3. Sure, one mythology is as valid as the next…
4. Huh? God is a wolf?
5+6. Fundies are wolves?
7. Do you mean “rudimentary”? Oh, and again; fundies are wolves?
8. Some priests are wolves?

So, people who refuse to help the poor, cure the sick and care for people in need are wolves?
Prosperity gospelists must be wolves, then.

So, elderberry (Sambucus Nigra) is a good tree, but red elderberry (Sambucus Racemosa) is a bad tree? The first is tasty, the second is poisonous.

"Someone You Know May Be A Devil In Disguise " This could apply very easily to Mack Major who is using Christianity to try to make money. Something Jesus was against.



"1. Showing slackness when it comes to living out an authentic salvation experience. "


So you expect them to act better? Because that would be my guess. Unless you mean they aren't being judgmental and spiteful enough



"2. More worldly acting than they are Christian. In fact, they're so worldly that you wouldn't know they were a Christian unless they directly told you. There's no other identifying behavior that connects them with the saints. These would be your believers who are still running out and getting tatted up - still attending secular music concerts - still drinking and getting high. And when challenged on these obvious sinful practices, they'll pull out the 'judge not' card. Or they'll say that Jesus places everything under the blood, therefore there's no need for them to stop sinning. I call these 'Christian sinners' (and yes, that's an oxymoron). "



So like making as money as you do Mack? And Christian sinners? Christians aren't perfect, even by their own fucking words Mack. It's not an oxymoron. You just don't know your own faith



"
3. Mixing of Christianity with Hinduism, Buddhism or New Age beliefs.
"


So no more Easter or Christmas for you? Since they were originally Pagan days?




"4. The use of phrases such as 'judge not' and 'God knows my heart.' "


So using phrases that are in your Bible? Mack have you ever read your Bible? I am Pagan. You should be explaining this shit to me. Instead it seems I know more about your beliefs than you do. You must be a wolf in sheep's clothing

"JUST CHECK FOR THEIR WOLFISH WAYS BEHIND THAT SHEEP FUR:"

1. Technically I'm pretty sure it's called wool, not fur.

2. Personally, I'd rather be a wolf than a sheep. But maybe that's why I chose a different god.

The Angry Dybbuk

What, Mack - slipping in your dotage? You didn't even charge for all these words. Allow me to return the favour:

Showing slackness when it comes to living out an authentic salvation experience.


What does this even mean? That they won't buy your books? That they disagree on a fundamental level with how you view this world, as expendable while you wait for the next one; and with how you view other people as equally expendable.

You know, Mack, you just don't strike me as the sort who tips bottle-pickers.

Maybe you're more giving and kindly than the content of your writing suggests, but that seems unlikely.

More worldly acting than they are Christian. In fact, they're so worldly that you wouldn't know they were a Christian unless they directly told you. There's no other identifying behavior that connects them with the saints.


Oh?

"And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

"But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly." - Matthew 6:5-6 (KJV)

Your definition of "worldly" seems to hinge entirely on those actions you, personally, can clearly see. You should stop to consider what you don't see - I'm looking at you, James A. Wilson - and to leave the determination of others' fates in the hands of that which can see what you cannot.

But that might ruin your pride, not to mention your income stream.

Mixing of Christianity with Hinduism, Buddhism or New Age beliefs.


Early Christianity, in addition to being Hellenised, also adopted and transformed non-Christian celebrations into something that would shock those who wrote and collated the TANAKH.

Your religion is not uniform; there are - as with other religions - about as many varieties of Christianity as there are Believers.

The use of phrases such as 'judge not' and 'God knows my heart.'


In other words, you object to their using phrases that appear in the Bible because you believe the meanings have been twisted by people who say those things.

Love how it never occurs to you that Mack Major could be on the wrong side of accurate interpretation in this case; that you, so intent on pointing out the failures of other people, have managed somehow to ignore your own glaring inadequacies.

Always the victim of someone or some church that 'did them wrong.'


...as opposed to you and your kind, who think Christians in the United States (of all places) face persecution when people of other faiths, or none, won't follow rules or utter greetings that exist only for members of your own religion.

YOU allow hucksters like faith healers to rip off the desperate in the name of your religion; they pack the rows at megachurches that rake in hundreds of thousands of dollars a week from the poor who give to the rich in exchange for "miracles."

Your kind has definitely alluwed 'wolves among the sheep,'

You shouldn't be condemning people who walk away from local churches; you should be working to clean up the filth in your own house.

Why aren't you doing that, Mack? You pick on easy targets rather than taking on real menaces.

Acting as if they're too holy or too spiritual to be bothered with the rest of us mere Christian mortals.


Don't you read a single word you write?

I could go on with this, but instead I'll just stop after the next comment:

Claims to be saved yet has a very elementary understanding or very little knowledge at all of holy scriptures. (How you gon' claim to love God - yet hate His word???)


You're shameless.

. In fact, they're so worldly that you wouldn't know they were a Christian unless they directly told you. There's no other identifying behavior that connects them with the saints.


What on earth would those "identifying behaviors" be? How WOULD you know someone is a Christian unless they told you, or you saw them praying or something?
