Self-Righteousness Leading to Negativity Against Others

There is a lot of drama in the local church. I dont find too many serious enough to leave religion or politics to follow Christ. I’ve been doing ministry for almost 11 years now. I still do my own bible study.

Some preachers frown and look down on me for not being a church member. I do what I can right caring for an elderly widow. That’s a 365 day , 7 days a week job.

A local preacher and his church have been friendly and helpful. Yet I don’t agree entirely with how the local church pastor keeps preaching ecclesiastical yet still remains in a physical church.

I’ve done some blogs and shared some truth and it helped some. Seems like this church craze is an obsession for some tied to a physical place for weekly Sunday worship.

I been visiting a website truth central.info , it is interesting what this guy teaches. Politics controls many local churches. I came out from among them a long time ago.

Local college professors are way off base calling Christianity a creed.

I keep asking God to help me to focus on Him and not give in to pressures of local denominations. Baptists, Catholics and Jehovah witnesses control a lot of speech here.

Matt, your faith is not centered in God but in the power of men. You come off sounding like the Pharisee in Jesus’ parable (I’ve made adjustments here to help you get the picture):

Luke 18:10-14 MKJV

(10)  Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a non-denominationalist, and the other a denominationalist.
(11)  The non-denominationalist stood and prayed within himself in this way: God, I thank You that I am not as other men are, religious, sectarian, political, unserious and carnal, even like this denominationalist.
(12)  I sponsor my own Bible study, minister to a widow, and resist the pressures of these religious to join the church craze.
(13)  And standing afar off, the denominationalist would not even lift up his eyes to Heaven, but struck on his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner!
(14)  I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself shall be abased, and he who humbles himself shall be exalted.

You’re focusing on men and their churches because you’re walking in your own righteousness. That’s why you compare others negatively to yourself according to your knowledge and works. Not good, Matt, not good enough at all for the Lord Jesus Christ. You need to get plugged into Him to get out of the negativity about others. Read How One Is Saved.

If one believes, he truly won’t be obsessed with what men do. He will know all that matters is what the Lord does, Who decides everything happening in Heaven and on earth. He is Lord of all.

Si Dios Está Con Nosotros, ¿Por Qué Aprender en Otro Lugar?
De: Natalia Para: The Path of Truth Enviado: Jueves, 31 de Marzo, 2016 10:03 AM Asunto: Tengo una pregunta  Hola queridos hermanos,  He estado leyendo en su sitio web, ya que me lo encontré mientras trataba de buscar falsos profetas. En primer lugar, quiero darles las gracias por el trabajo que le dedican y el tiempo que se toman en hacer todo esto. Yo sólo tengo una pregunta, que me tiene bastante desesperada: realmente, ¿en qué maestro se puede confiar hoy en día? Miren, yo soy una cristiana que nací de nuevo hace casi 4 años y yo solo dependo de la Biblia y de lo que enseña. Aun así, a veces me gusta ver videos en YouTube para obtener nuevas perspectivas y tal vez consejos, etc. Yo nunca los seguí completamente ni “adoré” a los maestros si saben a lo que me refiero (realmente algunas personas hacen eso; yo vi personas completamente enloquecer escuchando a algunos pastores de mega iglesias) ya que he podido identificar a los falsos profetas con la ayuda de nuestro Señor Jesucristo (alabado sea el Señor) y también de su sitio web, especialmente personas que en verdad usan a Cristo para promocionarse a sí mismos, lo cual me tiene un poco… ustedes saben… enojada y eso, porque detesto ese comportamiento egoísta y que Dios los perdone por sus pecados. Pero ahora estoy como que… “OK, ¿Dónde están los que realmente puedo creerles y escuchar?  ¿Saben de algunos ministerios o maestros que realmente enseñen lo que nos dice la Biblia?  Estaría muy contenta de recibir cu...
Judging Whether a Spiritual Manifestation is of God
From: Carin To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, July 31, 2016 4:36 PM I just wanted to let you know that what Todd White is doing is the work of Jesus Christ and I personally have been healed by Jesus through Todd white.  May the Father of Abraham , Isaac, Jacob ,David and Yeshua open your eyes to the truth. From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Carin Sent: Monday, August 08, 2016 6:39 AM Subject: Eyes Opened to the Truth Tell us more about your healing, Carin. If you received it by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, wonderful! We’ve never said one can’t believe anything Todd White says. What we’ve said is you can’t follow Todd White and the Lord Jesus Christ – it’s one or the other because Todd is doing his own thing in the Name of the Lord. Impressive as his sincerity and works may be, Todd isn’t preaching or taking up The Cross - Only the Death Sentence Will Avail. “For false Christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders; so much so that, if it were possible, they would deceive even the elect. Behold, I have told you beforehand” (Matthew 24:24-25 MKJV). God’s elect have their eyes opened and are not deceived.

Still, the Lord governs all things and nothing happens without His sanction. You haven’t written us by accident, as men know accident. As for your friend, belief in God isn’t measured by how much one believes He will do something for them. That can be faith, but it might just as easily be presumption and misplaced confidence, as with ...
