Commentary By: Gordon King
There is a lot of confusion out there, I mean everywhere! Confusion in the world and in the church!
I have had other believers judge me on posts that I have written, telling me that I am ungodly and leading people in the wrong direction! They are reading things that are not there, twisting what I have said into something that I did not say or imply!
If I ever say anything which is unclear of confusing, then I apologize from the bottom of my heart. I never wish to present anything in a way which is confusing or not clear.
It’s not always so easy writing your beliefs and thoughts down so that others can understand what you mean. At times things are taken out of context, at other times they are twisted into something other than what you said or meant to say, and other times the meaning is taken in a way which was never intended!
One post that I wrote recently: “Not under the Law”, seems to have caused some confusion, however this is not the only post which I am referring to.
The main point which I was trying to get across was that believers are not “condemned” under the law, we are not saved by the law, therefore the law has no power over us. This does not mean that we can freely sin or that we should. On the contrary, we should try to never sin! We should follow the laws of God and the laws of the land! We should do everything that we can to obey God and all of His laws! This is biblical, this is holy and righteous, this is the godly thing to do! Sin is evil, and every sin has a consequence. However, if we do sin, then we need to repent as soon as we can, and God will forgive us. We are saved only by the blood of Jesus , thats it! None of our works or lack of could ever save us! I believe that there may be other believers out there who think that I was saying that it is ok to sin! I never said that nor did I imply it. I just want to make that very clear and cause no confusion.
There are many posts that I write which seem to be degrading and intolerant of others, such as homosexuality, or Islam. Some believers seem to think that I hate some people and want them to die! This could not be further from the truth! I have never said that I hated anyone! And I never said that I want anyone to die! God forbid! I am sharing the truth from the word of God! I tell it as God tells it in scripture. I expose the evil and the darkness! Yet, at the same time I love these people and want nothing more than for them to see the light and get saved! Jesus Himself exposed the darkness, yet He wanted all to come to repentance and salvation! Even those who crucified Him!
Before passing judgment on a fellow believer, please, please just ask first! Do not become irate and impulsive before you have the facts and know the truth!
It’s not easy sharing the evils in the world, and sharing the love of God at the same time! It’s not easy explaining what is in the spirit on paper, and making your thoughts clear and concise. There will always be those who wish to tear down, to criticize and judge, whether they are right or wrong.
This is what we all should be focused on: GOD! If we focus our attention on God, on the things not seen, then everything else will fall into place. God is love! So let us all have some compassion for our fellow believers in Christ!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
