|Accepting this lie:|
Here is the lie: "The churches are overprotective."
The pressures of this current evil age have become very intense in trying to squeeze every person into their mold, and the ungodly are being quite successful in doing so. Much of the tax-funded educational system is set up to proselytize. Because of the social pressure, many who go by the label, Christian, are living like Atheists. They live a lukewarm existence that has a form of religion but denies the power of God for righteousness, holiness, and freedom from fleshly problems. The children, young adults, and older adults are expected avoid stepping across certain lines among the nominal Christians, at least for the time being. The taboos may include such things as sex outside of marriage, drugs, drinking, very early dating, ungodly music, using language that is disrespectful toward God and those in authority (who are set by God), wearing suggestive clothing, occult video games, and other occult entertainments, depending on the prevailing morals of the churches in the area and in the denomination. The tendency is to watch the Atheists and see how quickly they are sliding into oblivion and then to set the standard so that the nominal Christian slide is just slightly behind the curve from the Atheist slide. To make it more confusing, as the peer pressure for ungodliness increases, the rules change. The line that is used to change the rules is, "The churches are overprotective." When a certain parent is trying to walk in the Spirit, the more fleshly parents will bring pressure to bear using the same line: "You are way too overprotective." It may seem strange that the ungodly people who use the label, Christian, are the very ones who accuse those who walk with God of being judgmental. How are the godly judgmental? They are judgmental because they don't engage in the same level of evil as the ungodly in the organized religious organizations.
Of course, all of these things are outside of the realm of the Body of Christ. The Body of Christ consists of the those believers who have been called out of the current ungodly system of this age. They are those who do not respond to the demands of Satan and all his demons, the ungodly system and all their peer pressure, and their own sinful fleshly nature. They are those who respond to the leading of the Holy Spirit, gradually dying to the self life and coming alive to Christ in themselves. They are having Christ fully formed within themselves.
These called out believers are not under the law. They flow in the Anointing of the Holy Spirit. They hear Jesus Christ leading them. When they hear His voice, they respond. They acknowledge Him rather than acknowledging that which comes from the evil one. When they hear His voice, God's faith comes to them, and faith is the door to give access to God's grace, God's free gift of righteousness. So, God's free gift of righteousness flows through them. Their part is to simply hear and yield to the righteousness of God as God thinks His Thoughts, says His Utterances, and does His Acts through them. God does His works and never disobeys His laws. As they do the Works of God in this way, seeds are sown into their hearts. Those seeds change their hearts to become soft toward God and less open toward Satanic influences of their own sinful flesh, the order and system of this present eon, and demon voices. They are changed by degrees from glory to glory as they are brought into the image of Jesus Christ by the Spirit of the Lord. This is what holiness is: a change in the nature. In the process, they are set free from sin's appeal. This is what redemption is: a setting free from sin.
Unfortunately, the worldly churchy systems have become so corrupt and money-dependent that they try to draw people in by bowing to the demands of the current ungodly systems of this eon. They make one compromise after another. They no longer teach that it is wrong to sin. They change the message of sin to messages that fit in with the god of this ungodly system. Now, they preach against global warming, pollution, and righteousness. They bring in bands to play fleshly music, music that appeals to the fallen soul. They get rid of all spiritual music. They teach that light is darkness and that darkness is light, hoping to hold people in their organizations so that the money keeps coming in. If any godly people remain in their organizations, they make them feel guilty for their godliness by telling them that "they are over protective." This is the voice of the false prophet and of Babylon.
Yet, God will have a people who will walk in His ways. He is calling: "Come out, come out of her, my people that you be not partakers of her sins."
