“Christians” and Game of Thrones

Watching Game of Thrones

I was recently at a family gathering and “the guys” were sitting at our own table. As we were discussing games that we play on xbox one they started talking about Game of Thrones. My cousin has watched the entire series – twice! That number staggered me. I have never turned on Game of Thrones and I never intend to. To go into a deeper dive into the state of Christian men, or Christian sissy boys, click on those links.

There is a certain standard we need to hold ourselves as Christians. When we say that we are “not of the world”, that saying goes for more than just believing in Christ. We are not supposed to be OF THE WORLD.

False Teachers

Pastors such as Carl Lentz and Steven Furtick will tell you otherwise. They say that we need to, “invade the culture, become one with the culture” to bring people to Jesus. That – of course – is gibberish.

‘”If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you. ‘ – John 15:18-19

furtick2These verses are a good gauge of our spirituality. If you are hated by the world, chances are that you are one with God. If the world accepts you as its own, then you are playing in muddy water.

Furtick and Lentz lead churches that are of the world. The world loves them because that brand of Christianity is “of the world”. It is watered down to the point to where coming to Christ is nothing more than a chance for Instagram likes.

Of the World

game of thronesIf you spend your free time watching Game of Thrones, Sons of Anarchy, Westworld, The Wire, etc., you are committing a great sin. We are not supposed to be of the world, but a representative of Jesus Christ. If we spend our time in the world we are representing a false Jesus and will lead people astray.

‘You will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved. ‘ Matthew 10:22

The world hating you is a great responsibility. To endure this hatred to the end will save us.

God is great and His Promises are great. To stand against the world will take great sacrifice, but it is worth the eternal salvation we can look forward to.

God bless

The Christian Men Shortage

Christian Men Behind the Church Pulpit

“Of the World” Preaching by Christian Men

Christian MenI first wanted to start out by saying that I do not mean to pick on Steven Furtick too much with this blog. I disagree with his teaching and think he tends to preach like a pharisee. He focuses on the worldly pleasures instead of empowering the massive flock that he leads. He, along with many others, are leading Christian men to a sissified form of the gospel. This movement reminds me of the trendy Christian cringe I stumbled upon while on vacation.

The mega church pastor has feminized the average Christian male. This epidemic starts with a simple cardigan and ends with skinny jeans with worn seems.

Furtick is falling behind quickly on the “culture-style” attire he wears on stage each Sunday. I refrain from saying the stage at his “church” actually has a pulpit.

But Carl Lentz has replaced Furtick on the “woke” scale. Lentz is famous for his answer (or lack-thereof) to an abortion question on The View.

Christian Men Lacking Biblical Discernment

Christian men that fill the pews on Sunday mornings at these mega churches are obviously lacking Biblical discernment. I say this because if you actually studied the Bible diligently you would realize that these churches are filled with filth and leave.

These pastors have created cult followings that are leading sheep to the slaughter. Thousands of men are being led to hear, “Depart from me…” at the day of their judgement because of mega pastors like Lentz and Furtick.

I am in no way saying that these two pastors are the sole reason for this epidemic, but there are a slue of false teachers on Christian television every day. It is important for the true men of God to stand against this movement in evangelicalism and call it for what it is.

Changing the Feminist Backslide

Christian MenIf we call out these false teachers, then we can begin to repair the churches that they have destroyed. The “un-tuck” shirt movement that has invaded the church stage has degraded the gospel to an alarming state of health. Christian men no longer see it necessary to promote themselves in a manly manner, but instead apologize for their masculinity.

Instead of following pastors such as Voddie Baucham and Paul Washer, Christian men are following false teachers that tickle their ears. The issue with Baucham and Washer is that they call us out for our sissified culture and what we need to do to change and repent.  Yes, the Bible clearly states that our wives should submit to us in marriage. But what is even more important is to love our wives like Christ loves the Church.

When men in the church leave their wives or watch pornography, it destroys the home. Then the foundation of the local church weakens. When the local church weakens the disease spreads to the community. Finally, when the whole community erodes the national movement starts.

These false teachers invade communities with their church planting and change the community from the inside out. True, Biblical doctrine is Christian Menseen as too “old school” and must be changed. They bring in non-believers with their coffee and keep them because of their wussy gospels.

And Finally…

We all have loved ones that are trapped in this movement. This movement is most likely making its way into the church you attend. First it is Jesus Culture music and soon enough your pastor will wear a t shirt instead of a suit. The Holy Spirit is evicted from these churches. This is due to true Christians leaving for another church. We did it! But it is even more important that strong Biblical people stay at that church to fight this disease. The great commission calls us to go and make disciples.

God bless you and your witnessing to these men lost in the movement.

 

 

Episode 13 – Iran Deal, Israel, and Christian Men

Hello and welcome to the pod!

 

-Today I am first discussing different views of the Iran Deal that was axed by President Trump. Will he scrap this deal and come up with a new one like he is trying to do with TPP and other trade deals? Iran had continued to support terrorism and are now seen chanting DEATH TO AMERICA. Why were we even supporting this country in the first place?

 

-How will Israel be responding in the aftermath of this deal? The US embassy is moving right along with the road signs being posted this week. Is all of this action in the Middle East the precursor to the end times?

 

-My co-worker’s husband is gone for a month training to be a flight attendant after moving her from Minnesota to Ohio. Christian woman are great at honoring their husband, but are husbands good at honoring their wives? A popular verse in regards to a Christian marriage is women submitting to their husband. I believe that Christian women are great at following this verse. However, I believe that Christian men are very bad at following the verse saying that husbands shall love their wives as Christ has loved the Church. How can we be good representatives of Christ if we do not follow the commands in the Bible?

 

God bless
