LOVE DOES NOT REJOICE IN SIN. There’s a vastly different and obscene definition of “love” floating around the church and society. See, society is supposed to be a reflection of the church, but unfortunately the church is reflecting society. Please watch the documentary, “The Fight for the Soul of Seattle”. This is a disturbing picture of Seattle.
While our city officials continue to preach, “We love our people who are killing themselves with drugs, so we give them more and love our criminals who cannot help themselves to be but criminals, and so we let them rape and destroy others and we punish the law abiding citizens by doing nothing and force them to move out of the city just to be safe.” And the lawlessness continues.
This documentary is a picture of the American church. False prophets and pastors preach, “Continue in your sin! God loves you and I will march beside you in your parade”. Yet the Bible says, “Love does not parade itself”, but is humble and not vainglorious. The apostate church says, “You are victimized by your circumstances and so we must take dignity from others and rape them of their God-given identity. This is love.” But the Bible says, “love keeps no records of wrongs” and “we are more than conquerors in Christ”. The church lies to its people, “we are taking care of the poor!” Yet Paul said, “And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.” I Corinthians 13:3
Did you know you can give away everything and God says, “This is not love!”? True love for God is evidence by your commitment to Him. If you do not obey His Word, your “love” is empty. If your not submitted to His ways, your “love” is nothing. If you continue to live in sin and act in a lawless manner, your “love” is cold. If you do not love the Truth, but take pleasure in the unrighteous ways of the world; your “love” is false. And by doing all this, you make sad the heart of the righteous and they are forced to leave your fellowship.
“Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord! I did all these things in Your name!’ And He will say, ‘Depart from Me you worker of iniquity. I never knew you.’” God is love, therefore He defines what love is and “he who does not love, does not know God”. Be sure to get this right or else you will find yourself shut out of His kingdom. #runyourrace
