The Bible speaks often about the faith or lack thereof of individuals that claim to serve God. The Bible also speaks about how one cannot serve two different masters. If you take both of these edicts as truth, then you will start to wonder why so many seem to do both of these yet never realize how they are failing to serve God as they should.
Now it could be because many people believe that anything they do is just fine. We all know the Christian that thinks that every single action they have taken in life is perfect. Nothing they have done is wrong. They have committed no sins. It has all been okay with God.
These Christians miss the passages of the Bible that stae we are all sinners and fall short of God. We all have things that we are doing that keeps us from getting closer to God. Just because we think it is okay does not mean that it is okay with God. Contrary to what many hear in church or from their favorite Christian speaker everything we desire is not of God. In fact I would say that most of our desires take us away from God because we are not trying to follow God we are trying to have God follow us.
See it is easy to spot the false prophets that talk about mustard seeds turning into millions of dollars. It is easy to spot the false saint that supports hateful politicians who start wars and starve children. It is easy to spot the false prophet that is a single mother with 4 kids never been married living with the younger bae that is a stripper. It is easy to spot the false prophet that has five women pregnant in the congregation because he is trying to spread the word of god around.
We can spot these vipers easily. But what about the false prophet that belongs to an interfaith conference that talks about social justice and becomes involved in politics? How about the false saint that gives a speech at a political rally that talks about how marriage is a thing of the past. What about the false saint that speaks at a conference that says you are hindering women by saying that adultery and fornication are wrong because men do it all the time? What about the false saints that make sure children are separated from adults during worship service so they can spend time having fun and playing games instead of hearing scary outdated stories from the Bible?
Do you believe these individuals are false saints? I am going to go out on a limb and say that you don’t. I am going to go a step further and say that many of you follow someone that is one of these false saints or are one yourself. I feel confident in saying that because I look at what you say, where you go to church, and how you live your lives.
I know that teaching directly from the Bible does not fill the church up these days. No one wants to hear a message about how they are living their lives in sin, how they need to care about others, and how a lot of things they want to do are against God.
People don’t want to feel like outcasts in society. They want to belong. They don’t want to be called stupid or dumb because they are different. They want to look pretty like everybody else. They want to be sexy like everybody else. They want to have fun like everyone else. They want to smoke like everybody else. They want to have free sex like everybody. They want power like everybody else. They want someone to say everything they do is okay and alright, like everyone else.
False saints are people that want to claim God but they don’t want to serve God. They don’t even want to talk about service to God. They only want to do what they want to do. If they think it is okay then it is okay. They don’t want anything or anyone to tell them that it is not.
So they are going to ignore the Bible, the Holy Spirit, angels, and you if you tell them something different than what they want to do. It is easy to spot them when they do things we don’t like but extremely hard when they do things that we either do or desire to do.
Remember that false saints will lead you to damnation the same way that true heathens will. Always remember that if it is not of God then it is wrong; and nothing or no one in the world is going to change that.
