  1. Commenting on STEP FOUR of Basic Steps for Christian Survival -- "Focus!"

    Today I considered joining to a group of Independent Ministers that I found online (FGEA.org) who sounded like they had a similar call from Jesus as I ... to bring Christians back to New Testament simplicity of worshiping JESUS and away from modern stresses of ministry. I don't need their ordination (I'm already ordained since 1987) but since things on a webpage can be fraudulent these days, I called the phone number hoping to speak to a living person and was happy to get one.

    The gentleman and his group seemed to sync with my heart and I said I would call back today if he had time to continue the conversation for more understanding and answering questions. I left him with this Truth Seekers of Jesus Christ (TM)/ Truth Seekers Church website to get to "know" me awaiting this afternoon's call back to them. He assured me there would be time and he and his wife looked forward to my return call this afternoon.

    I just called and was told flat and straight. "We've looked at your website and disagree with a number of things on your site. We can't have you in our group. We are Trump supporters and we believe the election was stolen! We don't believe there was an insurrection! We are against abortion, we are against gays ...". "We know we are doing what God wants us to do".

    I ask you readers -- what does any of that have to do with a person calling to learn or support JESUS CHRIST and HIS GOSPEL???

    I asked, "well can we discuss"? The reply -- " We don't have time for you (irritated tone or angrily)".

    Now, for your learning and survival, I ask you readers of this "survival" site ... was I rejected for a heresy against Jesus of Nazareth -- The Christ? No. Was there a rejection of me for being a sinner against the Cross? No. Was there a rejection for being a woman?

    No! I was rejected for being independent and loyal to no Democrat or Republican, but only to the Lord's "tunnel-vision" pursuit for the eternal soul of EVERY living person" -- republican, democrat, progressive, conservative, communist, socialist, American, Russian, Arabian etc. -- you get the point.

    I do vote my conscience at the time when voting ballots come around and that must be your own private issue between you and God. Sometimes persons may not even choose to vote -- that's your business, not your pastor's or any other preacher!

    Just as I told you in STEP FOUR. STAY FOCUSED! I called to hear about Jesus, His Gospel, how we might work together in that. Instead, there was a strong and angry backlash about America's politics. I informed him, "I can't be a part ... [of your group]". He responded, "we won't have you"!

    There are pastors and other Christians (true or false, only God knows in His word) -- all over this country who are loyal to the interests of this world, who risk their eternal salvation on a "single earthly political issue" versus securing their soul by loyalty to the only Heavenly Kingdom and the King over ALL kings -- JESUS.

    For example, what if you are a "Christian" violently claiming you are pro-life, but you are a racist (James 2:9)? What if you are a "Christian" yelling that you are against gays, but in secret loving pornography or other things (Romans 1:18-32)? Where does the line stop!??

    James 2:11
    For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.

    Can you even imagine Jesus getting involved in Augustus Caesar's political future or failure? Can you imagine the Lord's apostles marching angrily, riotously up Rome's government steps to force ANYTHING? For a Christian, the answer should be, indeed MUST BE ... "No"!

    Titus 1:5-6
    5) "For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee: 6) If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly".

    Only God knows the secrets of your "heart toward Him" -- AND THAT IS WHAT JESUS CHRIST IS ABSOLUTELY (guaranteed) GOING TO JUDGE IN US!

    To Jesus, "nothing matters but your soul going into Heaven or Hell". That's what He lived, died, and rose on the third day for! That's ALL Jesus focused on and He warned us to focus with Him on that:

    1 Peter 5:8-9 -- "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world".

      When we forsake the basics: Being kind (Matthew 5), Being ready to search scripture and see if we may be deceived in some area (Acts 17:11), Being loving toward any/every human being even if we don't see what they see (2 Timothy 2:24-26) -- we have gotten CAUGHT UP IN THE THINGS GOING ON IN THE WORLD AROUND US -- no longer caught up in the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

    I don't know where all the lines are stopping in anyone's heart toward Jesus Christ as their LORD; but I do know from the written Holy Scriptures, from His words in the Gospels, and from Jesus' conversation with me that being caught up in the world around me will take my heart away from JESUS at some point ... and that will surely land me in Hell and eternally damned! (Matthew 7:21).
