When I came to be a born again believer I came to Jesus just as I was. Nothing I did or said was good enough. And because of His amazing grace and Jesus even gave me the faith to be saved.
Ephesians 2:8-9 says For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. And yet we fight over stupid things like works or other unimportant things while the lost and dying go to their grave without Jesus Christ. We should be ashamed of ourselves. We argue about a lot of things. We argue about the end times, about rapture or no rapture, about who were the sons of God who mated with the daughters of men. We argue about the second coming, the tribulation, end time prophecy, the list goes on and on.
What is wrong with us? All the things we argue about are absolutely useless. I am heartbroken when I see this happening driving away potential believers. No wonder people do not go to church today. No wonder we in the church are called hypocrites. We are hypocrites.
We do not want to help someone because they are living in sin. Maybe helping them might bring them back. Did anyone ever think of that? Church members go on and on with needs not met because of stupid reasons and all believers want to do is argue or debate issues.
Telling the truth is one thing but we should tell it in love and leave it at that. Not argue about whatever that truth is. Remember Jesus is the only way to the Father. Jesus is the only way to Salvation. So why can’t we concentrate on sharing the love of Jesus with others and stop all this stupid arguing that is so useless in the long run. If we want to gather together making sure that there is no one among us that need to be told the good news and discuss things among ourselves that is fine. But what really hurts me is to see people so caught up in being right that they fail to help those in need. Fail to share the love of Jesus with others. You who do just keep on arguing or as you would say discussing and when you stand before Jesus you will have plenty to answer for. Jesus said for us to go into all the world and preach the gospel, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Not argue. By the way Baptism is another ridiculous subject that so called Christians fight over all the time.
Finally only Jesus saves. Only Jesus is the way. So please if we love each other and others stop the useless or foolish debates, genealogies, quarrels, and disputes about the law. These things according to Titus are unprofitable and worthless.
