The PRICE of LIFE
We are not saved by "grace" in Jesus. That's nonsense. What do you think it means when Jesus stated that the path to Heaven is a narrow one that one enters through the small gate? He also spoke about the broad path that most people will follow to find salvation.
Your simplistic talk about finding salvation through grace is the broad path that comes from most churches. And as it has been foretold, churches have all but fallen away.
We cannot conform to the world and not walk in hypocrisy. Society constantly throws us into situations that keep us off our guard and failing. We are also led to promote the evils that lead others to Sin. So we are to stop conforming.
Why do you think Jesus lived in poverty and led people to give up their life to follow Him? Remember what he told the rich man? No rich person can enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
We were also told to follow the FULL doctrine of GOD's written words. But people who use simple salvation do not follow the whole Bible. Only parts. The whole TRUTH of the Holy Bible appears ugly to the world. Because the world hates the TRUTH. Society leads us to prefer lies over TRUTH. And it shows every day. Simply watching a Bugs Bunny cartoon makes us hypocrites. Listening to an 80s pop song that sings "Heaven is a place on Earth" is the same as walking in hypocrisy. Eating food that we know is bad for our bodies is the same as hypocrisy. Choosing to work a 9 to 5 job that we know promotes someone's financial wealth is a hypocrisy.
And worst of all. To love our life is a crime. Because we were told to hate this life. Because this life provides all things that are contrary to what GOD has expected from us. Pride. Vanity. Etc etc. We were also told to hate our loved ones. Meaning that nothing should come between us and GOD. But loved ones tend to live in our hearts. But they should not be in there at all. Because the heart can be deceitful. We must show love to others directly from a heart that is filled with the spirit of GOD. Not through our own will.
Three words we often see at the forefront of false Carnal Christianity are FAITH, GRACE, and LOVE. They get tossed around like free tickets to Graceland. But clearly, Jesus showed us that the walk we are to walk is nearly impossible for most people. The reason why they had trouble getting followers. Because most people aren't willing to give up this life. THERE IS A PRICE!! And Jesus was NOT it. He opened the path. But we have to walk it. It's narrow. And He said the gate is small. Meaning that we MUST leave behind all baggage to enter it. And it is one way. We must be willing to commit ourselves to it. This life isn't meant for us to be smug, living for our own purpose. The world is in desperate need for action. Sell your home. Go on a mission to lead others out of society. Jesus didn't sit at home on the Internet, waiting for people to find His website. He went looking for them. Spreading TRUTH. Even when people were ready to kill Him for it. And He expects us to do the same. If this world is what you love, give it up or you will pay a higher price.
