Will some pastors be getting the sack?
You might wonder how I have come to the conclusion as stated in the title and I will simply say that it is the only way that I can explain why the modern Christian church is in the state that it is now. If you go to a decent job they will usually have some manuals relating to certain aspects of it and you will usually find that the manuals are well written, because the quality of the employees work can have a direct affect on whether the company survives or not. A sensible company will usually get their employees to sign a contract of some kind which will state what they expect of that employee and if the employee strays from what is written, then they can get the sack. The manual will usually also have some rules in it that shouldn't be broken, like how to deal with customers, but if they are ignored then that can also lead to the employee loosing their job. When you look at all the various companies that exist in the world, you can see that they take what they do seriously, yet in the end they will be destroyed when God's kingdom returns, but this does not seem to stop most of their employees from doing the best job that they can. The modern Christian church is supposed to be run by the same God who's kingdom will be returning, but the leaders (pastors) and employees there seem to take the manual, that their God has given them, as if it is just a joke that can mostly be ignored. Their manual also contains details of the contract that they say they have signed, but it seems to me as if most of the modern Christians have a problem understanding how to read the plain text of this contract, which then leads them to think that they can just mostly do whatever they want, but still make it into their God's kingdom. This is also one of the main reasons why people outside tend to think that the modern Christian church is a joke, because they can read the Bible for themselves and see that most so called Christians are just hypocrites, while also seeing that non-Christians tend to actually behave more closely to the way that God would expect. So this is where the title comes in because we know that God is the head of good and the Devil is the head of evil, but if God was running the current church then they would be doing His will, so the fact that they seem to be enjoying not doing His will can only lead to the conclusion that the Devil is running their show.
Working out that something is wrong is quite easy because all you have to do is to read what it says in the Bible and then compare it to what the modern Christian church is doing. In Matthew 6:1-8 it says "Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him." and we see here two things that Jesus has explicitly said should not be done, but the modern church is happy to do them without any shame. When you go into any modern church you will find people blatantly praying out and they will even be encouraged to do it. If Jesus was their boss, in His company that they worked in, then they would have gotten the sack a long time ago, but if their boss is the Devil then it looks like he has no problem with what they are doing. You will also notice that church pastors seem to like boasting about how they are spending the money that is donated, so that people are encouraged to give, but the problem with this is that God is taken out of the loop which makes it seem as if mankind is doing all the work. If the churches did not say what was happening to the money, but it was still being donated, then this could only have been the Holy Spirit that was encouraging them to give, which then brings God into the loop and allows people to see how He works.
Divorce of doom
In Matthew 19:3-11 it says "The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause? And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery. His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry. But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given. For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it." but you will find that the modern church is there in order to satisfy mankind's desire, over God's desire. I am actually amazed at the lengths that modern church people will go to in order to get around Jesus words, so that they can get rid of their spouse just like the heathens. Most Christians will avoid using Paul's words to override Jesus, but when it comes to this subject they will use Paul as their saviour and twist what he is saying to the highest degree. From what Jesus has said it should be obvious that God prefers couples to stay together, but it is obvious, from what happened in the Garden of Eden, that the Devil prefers to destroy relationships, so it seems as if the modern church is still trying to follow their boss when it comes to this subject. You could also note at the end there that Jesus seems to indicate that it is possible for someone to be a eunuch from birth which seems to indicate that people are wrong when they say that one cannot be born as a homosexual.
Pastors of doom
In Matthew 23:8-14 it says "But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation." and you should note that He is complaining again about the way that people pray at the end there. He has mentioned a few things here and the first one shows why you should not think of a church pastor as being above the other members of the congregation, but as being at the same level as everyone else. I have had to correct a church member on this subject, who seemed to think that the pastor is the leader of a Christian church, so that they could understand that Jesus is the only head. The Catholics also like to call the Pope holy father, but we can see that this is a wrong thing to do as mentioned above, unless Jesus is not their boss. Another thing mentioned should show you who runs any church that has a pastor that exalts themselves in some way, you won't see them pulling down any posters with their face on it, or making sure that their face is not shown on any books that they write. You would think that some of these church pastors are movie stars, from the way that they dress and sound, but this should just help to confirm to you who their boss is.
Should women shave?
In I Corinthians 11:1-16 it says "Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head. But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man. For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord. For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God. Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered? Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering. But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God." and we see here that Paul is making sure that we know how the true hierarchy should be in the church, while the Devil will obviously make people think that the order does not matter. It seems to me as if there is a large scale deception going on in the modern Christian church, because the vast majority of women seem to think that it is ok to pray with their heads uncovered. Some women do wear head coverings when they go to church, but they will remove it at the first chance that they get, because their church doctrine seems to forget to tell them that they should also be praying in the correct way when they are also not in the church building. They seem to prefer the doctrine of the Devil, which says that they should only do whatever mankind tells them to do, which is usually something that satisfies their selfish desires, rather than the doctrine of God which tells them to do His will first, which will usually go against what they want to do.
Boss of confusion
In I Corinthians 14:21-33 it says "In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord. Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe. If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad? But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all: And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth. How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying. If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret. But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God. Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge. If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace. For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted. And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints." and we see here the rules relating to how tongues should be spoken in the church. When you hear about or see people speaking in tongues in a modern church, you will mostly find that they do not bother with the interpretation part, as if this part is a joke, but will just babble their nonsense and then stop. There are some people who try to be clever and give an interpretation, but it is usually something obvious which seems to be a different length from the original words that were spoken. This should them make it obvious who is running the Pentecostal churches where people are acting as if they are crazy, their boss obviously prefers them to act like nutcases so that people will be put off from serving the true God, thinking that this is how they are also expected to act.
Do you chose the Spirit or the flesh?
So, which church would you prefer to be a part of? Are you a person of the flesh who prefers the pleasures of this world and would then expect the church you belong to, to also put a greater emphasis on these things? Or are you a person who wants to seek God and His Spirit who would prefer to do His will and join with a church that has a greater emphasis on God's things instead? If you are the first type of person then there are plenty of churches that you can find which have been set up to please mankind, at the expense of the doing of God's will. But if you are the second kind of person then you will have a bit of a problem because this second type of church seems to be hard to find at the moment and it will continue to be hard to find, unless you are prepared to help to do something about this.
