Commentary By: Gordon King
Most of us have seen the “Coexist” bumper stickers almost everywhere we go. It just sounds so nice doesn’t it?! Lets all just coexist, lets just all get along!
Sure, I agree, lets all get along! Lets live together in peace. We should love everyone, even those with opposing views, even those who mean to do us harm. However, we should not compromise our beliefs, nor should we deny the One who saved us!
Is this really what this message is all about? Living together in peace and harmony?
I believe that there is an another message, one which has been covered up by “political correctness”! It is a deception from demonic spirits.
I don’t know the true motives behind the Coexist organization itself, however, when I see the bumper sticker it brings to mind interfaith religion, One World Religion, New World Order, and compromising one’s beliefs in order to fit into society!
The message that we are all the same! That all religions and beliefs will lead to the same place. That not one religion has the only answer, and that everyone, no matter what you believe, will get to heaven, some way, some how, and even if you don’t believe in any god, then you will still get to heaven!
Well, I would have to agree that we were all born into this world as sinners! Each and every one of us, and in that case we are all the same! Yet, there is a huge difference in what one believes to be the truth, and in how we get to heaven. There is also a huge difference in just who we are once we accept Jesus Christ or reject Him! In fact, huge just doesn’t even begin to describe what a difference it really is, it’s more like life or death!
We see the world merging the religions of the world into one religion, one faith, saying that why not, we all worship the same god anyway! When you hear the terms “interfaith” or “interreligious”, beware, this is more than likely a sign of such beliefs.
As believers in Jesus Christ, we have morals and values given to us by our God which mold our character, and make us more Christ-like. When we compromise these values to “live in harmony” with the world, then we are denying Christ! We are rejecting the Holy Spirit living within us. Scripture tells us not to grieve the Holy Spirit.
“And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.“
Just how do we grieve the Holy Spirit? By living the way the world lives! By compromising our faith and our beliefs in Jesus Christ! By living in sin, living how the world lives, and denying the Holy Spirit within us to lead and guide us!
We are to live in the world, not be part of the world! We are to live in the world and not be conformed to the world!
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
I believe that most of the world sees the term “coexist” differently then do believers in Jesus Christ. They see it as everyone living together with the same morals and values, whether they are right or wrong! Everyone accepting the values of the world, whether or not God says that they are wrong!
The values and morals of the world are developed over time to suit the desires of the flesh! They take and twist the truth in order to make it conform to their ways of life. They make their own truths, even when they are wrong, and turn them into good for their own sake, for the sake of themselves!
When President Obama ran for president, he ran on the slogan of “change”. What he meant was to change America for the worse, to change the Constitution, to change laws, and to change the morals and values of society! Well, I would have to say that he has done a pretty good job of it over the past eight years! However, Obama isn’t the only one to blame, it’s been happening for quite some time, evil spirits have been influencing many politicians and citizens into making evil and wicked decisions, bringing us to where we are today, he just made it worse!
The truth is that there is only one way to heaven, one way to have eternal life, through the blood of Jesus Christ! There is no other way. Without Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior we would all make bad choices, we would all fall to sin, and we would all live in and for the flesh.
While living in this world waiting for our Savior to take us home, we must live peaceably among all people, yet we must keep our faith, morals, and values intact. Living for Christ in a world of antichrist!
Interfaith religion, political correctness, the blind leading the blind, rejection of Christ, Islamic terror, and immoral values are all leading to the same conclusion, the second coming of Christ!
When you see all of these things coming to pass know that He is near, even at the door!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
