Most so called professed Christians are actually following the satanic philosophy anyway.

This is a hard statement but it is all too true.The world is watching and always is looking for our hypocrisy to show itself.If we claim to be of Christ then it must show in all we do on a single day.By the fruits you will know them right??

Lets take the test and see which line of the fence we fall upon ok??

 

Lets take a look and see if we Christians do as such

Here we go:

The Eleven Satanic Rules of the Earth

 

1. Do not give opinions or advice unless you are asked.

2. Do not tell your troubles to others unless you are sure they want to hear them.

3. When in another’s lair, show him respect or else do not go there.

4. If a guest in your lair annoys you, treat him cruelly and without mercy.

5. Do not make sexual advances unless you are given the mating signal.

6. Do not take that which does not belong to you unless it is a burden to the other person and he cries out to be relieved.

7. Acknowledge the power of magic if you have employed it successfully to obtain your desires. If you deny the power of magic after having called upon it with success, you will lose all you have obtained.

8. Do not complain about anything to which you need not subject yourself.

9. Do not harm little children.

10. Do not kill non-human animals unless you are attacked or for your food.

11. When walking in open territory, bother no one. If someone bothers you, ask him to stop. If he does not stop, destroy him.

 

 

The Nine Satanic Statements

 

1. Satan represents indulgence instead of abstinence!

8. Satan represents all of the so-called sins, as they all lead to physical, mental, or emotional gratification!

 

9. Satan has been the best friend the Church has ever had, as He has kept it in business all these years!

 

Lets now look at the False Christian

The Character of False Christians

False Christians are those in the church who enjoy and believe the preaching of false prophets. Refusing to believe the true preaching of the word of God, they cannot stand the idea of sin, repentance, the wrath of God, the kingdom of God, righteousness, or holiness. They don’t even want to hear these words! They want the preachers to say that people can be saved while continuing in sin. They are always looking for happiness, not holiness. Such people are always optimistic, rejecting the “negative” doctrine of sin and the word of the Lord that tells them to repent.

Jeremiah spoke about the nature of false Christians and their response to the word of God: “To whom can I speak and give warning? Who will listen to me? Their ears are closed so they cannot hear. The word of the Lord is offensive to them; they find no pleasure in it” (Jeremiah 6:10). The word of God is pure joy to a believer. In Matthew 4:4 Jesus Christ declared, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” (KJV). In Psalm 16:11 we read, “In thy presence there is fullness of joy, at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore” (KJV). But to a false Christian, it is offensive.

False Christians love a “positive” gospel, an easy cure for their serious disease of sin; thus, they love those prophets who entertain them and preach what they want to hear.

We find false prophets and those who love them throughout the Bible. Wicked King Ahab of Israel kept four hundred of them in his court. Whenever he wanted advice, they would say whatever he wanted to hear, not wanting to disappoint their employer.

Paul spoke much about false prophets and false Christians. For instance, in 2 Timothy 3:1-7 he wrote, not about people in the world, but about those in the church:

But mark this: there will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them. They are the kind who work their way into homes and gain control over weak-willed women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth.

Foolish Builders

False Christians are also foolish builders. Jesus Christ spoke about wise and foolish builders in Matthew 7. It is very simple to find out which builders are foolish and which are wise. The foolish builder never obeys and submits to Jesus Christ, never takes the word of God seriously, and never acknowledges that Jesus Christ is truly King of kings. He is truly a fool, who, according to the biblical definition, lives as if there is no God. People may go to church all their lives yet remain false and foolish.

In Matthew 7:24-25 Jesus spoke about wise builders, saying, “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.” But in verse 26 he identified foolish builders, saying, “But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” Foolish builders hear the word of God but do not think they have to obey it.

Most people consider religion to be a very private matter, something that should make them feel good, but not make any big difference in their lives. They do not show much concern about the state of their souls. The same people show great diligence about the state of their physical bodies, examining themselves regularly and immediately seeking medical tests if they find something wrong.

Most so-called Christians also take great pains concerning their physical life, but treat religion as an appendage that can be put on or taken off at will. They think mental assent to God’s word is all that is necessary and that faith without works is all that is required. They reject the notion of denying oneself, taking up the cross, and following Jesus Christ. They want to experience the feast of the kingdom of God without submitting to the rule of the King.

Such people are building according to their own ideas rather than the pattern God gave. They enjoy the word of God as entertainment, something that makes them feel good, but fight against obedience and holy living. The problem is that such people will not be saved. That is why we say false Christians are foolish builders.

 

The Defense of False Christians

In Matthew 7:22 we find the defense false Christians presented to God on the last day. There we read, “Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’” We must note that Jesus was clearly describing churchgoing people, not pagans, for pagans would not say these things. Note also that Jesus says that many will come and say these things.

Jesus will be the judge on the last day, so in this passage we find false Christians making their defense before him. Jesus said, “On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord… .” The use of “Lord, Lord” tells us that these people had orthodox doctrine. No one will go to heaven without orthodoxy, but not everyone who is orthodox is going. We cannot enter the kingdom of God without proper doctrine, especially as to the person and work of Jesus Christ. But orthodoxy alone will not get us in. These people correctly confessed, “Lord, Lord,” and the repetition shows their urgency as well as their presumption of closeness with Jesus Christ.

Not only did these people make the proper confession, but they also appealed to their ministry. They told Jesus, “In your name we prophesied; in your name we cast out demons; in your name we performed many miracles. Not only we are orthodox in our confession, we are also proper ministers. In fact, some of our miracles were spectacular and supernatural like yours. Don’t we deserve entrance into the kingdom of heaven?”

Jesus the judge sees through all the defenses of false Christians. Remember how the king in Matthew 22 noticed the guest without the wedding garment? In Matthew 22:11 we read, “But when the king came to see the guests… .” but in the Greek text it is, “The king came to inspect… .” God sees and knows everything. In Hebrews 4:12 we read that the word of God is living and active, cutting through and exposing the thoughts and intents of the human heart. Read the first three chapters of the book of Revelation. There we read about the church and the Lord of the church, whose eyes are like flaming fire.

The king immediately noticed a person in the hall who was self-sufficient. What was the man’s response when the king asked him how he got in without a wedding garment? He had none.

The Final Doom of False Christians

In Matthew 7 we read that Christ the judge heard the defense of these people. He heard the orthodox doctrines and saw the grandiose ministry. But the Lord ends this section with a sobering description of the final doom of false Christians.

Did Jesus understand the defense of these false Christians? Oh, yes. But he was not impressed as we would be. We are fascinated with the big, the beautiful, the grand, and the glorious. We don’t worry about the centrality of the Bible in the normal Christian life and about whether or not a church conforms to the pattern shown in the Bible. When we see a ministry, we look at its size and the number of programs it has. We notice that the annual budget is $85 million. We see that they have programs every day, for every possible age and interest group. We observe the large, beautifully furnished building they meet in, and the many ministers or priests, who wear robes and jewels. Then we see a small gathering in the name of Jesus Christ who come together to read the word of God and worship God in spirit and in truth. What is that compared to all the glitter and pomp of the false Christians’ great churches?

But he to whom all judgment is given is not impressed by the externalities cited in defense of false Christians. So in Matthew 7:23 we read Jesus’ concluding statement to the false Christians. “Then I will tell them plainly I never knew you.” There will be no further appeal.

In John 10:14 Jesus Christ said, “I know my sheep and my sheep know me.” So when he says, “I never knew you” he means, “You are not my sheep.” Then he reveals the nature of these people. The nature of a tree determines its fruit—a good tree brings forth good fruit but a bad tree can only bear bad fruit. The one with eyes like flaming fire looked deep into the heart of these people and exposed their nature. Despite their profession, false professors are unregenerate people who can only bear bad fruit. So Jesus concluded the matter by saying, “Away from me, you evildoers!”

The kingdom of God is characterized by law of the King. Jesus was telling these people, “Hoi ergazomenoi tên anomian,” which means “You are continually working lawlessness.” Such people have nothing to do with the kingdom of God. That is why they suffer the doom of false Christians. God is not impressed by their works, for they are workers of iniquity.

In 2 Thessalonians 2:8 we find a statement about the antichrist. He is described as ho anomos, which means the lawless one. Jesus Christ was telling these people, “You are the children of the lawless one always practicing lawlessness.” But the kingdom of God is characterized by righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.

Are You a False Christian?

Think it through. Foolishness will never help us, because, according to the Bible, foolishness is rejection of God as king—rejection of his law, rejection of his plan, and rejection of his way. We must enter into the narrow gate, who is Jesus Christ.

This is the way we enter the kingdom of heaven. We can only enter through Jesus Christ, the new and living way. We enter through his blood and then continue in the narrow way. At the end he will say to us, “Come, blessed of the Father, enter! Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world.”

Are you willing to forsake autonomy, disobedience, self-centeredness? Are you willing to be ruled by Jesus Christ? If so, I urge you to pray even now and tell God that this is what you want to do. Amen.
