Radical For Christ

Jesus is LORD!!!! His Mission Statement is found in Luke 3:18,19, John 10:10 and Matthew 9:11-13 (New King James Version) I firmly believe that the entire Bible- The Infallible Word of Almighty God- is an encyclopedia of RECOVERY! You might wanna call it recovery or second chance! Yeah. God gives humanity HOPE- for a new beginning. That is why the very FIRST words in the Bible (Genesis Chapter 1 verse 1) starts with these words.."In the beginning.." God is a God of new beginnings. I write first and foremost in reaction to why a greater part of the congregation in the non-denominational churches ("Born Again" if you will) are ex-prostitutes, ex-convicts, one "ex" or the other, and those seeking solutions! Yeah the Bible is for such moreso. If you are no stranger to the Bible, then you should know that the Outstanding "Characters" or personalities in the Bible are "Ex- so or so": Mary Magdalene (who was the first at the tomb to anoint the body of Christ) was an Ex-prostitute, Abraham (Whom God called His friend), Isaac, Jacob (the Patriarchs), Moses, David (A man after God's Heart), to name but these. And most amazing of all, Luke Chapter 15 records the mind-boggling story of the Prodigal Son and the uncondition and bountless Love and Mercy the Father (Analogous of Almighty God) shows the repentant son. Besides, Jesus offers an invitation in Matthew "Come unto Me all ye who are weary and heavy-laden and I will give you rest" (Mtt 11:28-30) In other words, The Master Jesus came exclusively for the Lost, needy and suffering, for Mtt 18:11 (NKJV) says the "Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost". While He walked the shores of Galilee, He hung with the lepers (outcast), held miracle crusades, fed the Hungry, interacted with Prostitutes, had lunch with tax collectors, etc. When questioned by the Pharisees why he did such- His response was "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick" (Mtt 9:11-13 NKJV)

Radical For Christ

Issues concerning non-denominational ("Born Again") churches are quite "delicate" and ought to be approached with equal care- as man's wisdom is limited and only an Omniscient (All-knowing) God who knows and searches every heart is aware or the "good" and the "bad". He is the Righteous Judge.
@ Mbu B I love your comment on God's sovereignty! He alone is perfect! It's time the "Church" (according to Fr. Nkea and in ref to the RCC) understood that there is only One Lord, One faith and One Baptism according to Eph 4:5 (NKJV).
@ Mona, I must commend your comment. Testimonies are powerful tools against the enemy (Satan) and have the power to light a brethen's "gloomy day"- stir up faith if you will. Revelation 12:11 (NKJV) says "And they overcame him (satan) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.." Besides, the RCC strongly believe in their dogma (which they consider a legacy handed them by Jesus) and the logic is that any other that does not resemble theirs is debunked (of which is myopic)
There is absolutely nothing wrong with a Bible-believing Church. So long as it is a Bible-Believing, it is in line with God's will and that is the essence. It does not matter whether they sing and shout. What matters is whether they do worship God in Spirit and in Truth (John 4:23) All I know is that the Holy Spirit takes absolute control and does lead the praise/worship. The Bible says to "Make a Joyful Noise to the Lord all the lands! (Psalm 100:1 RSV) The Holy Spirit is the Teacher ( 1 Cor 2:13) Let Him teach you and guide you in ALL truth.
Summarily, it's all about God and mankind's "quest" or desire for an intimate relationship with Him- as was between God and Adam in the Garden of Eden before the fall! There is a vacuum in us which only God can fill. I call it the "God Space" nothing short of God can fill it- not sex, not drugs, not crack not boyfriend/girlfriend, money, fame, notoriety, not even CHURCH etc. if you go to any church (no matter which- RCC, PCC, CBC, non-denominational etc) you may be dissatisfied because they are NOT the answer! JESUS is! NOT the Priest, Pastor nor Deacon.
The Lord is near to the Broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. It's about a yearning to know Him and experience the fullness of life, living according to His will and purpose for your life. Yes! your life does have a purpose. There is a special reason for your existence (Eccl 3:1)
Jesus said in Matthew 12:25 that "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand." Solomon writes in Ecclesiases 3:14,15 (NKJV) "I know that whatever God does, It shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, And nothing taken from it. God does it, that men should fear before Him. That which is has already been, and what is to be has already been; and God requires an account of what is past."

Dear Brethens,
Like I said sometimes in an Advanced Levels religious studies lecture, the proliferation of new religious movements,sects and secret society is a call for concern.First not only because they have different appraoches to a said issue,but the ambiquity surrounding their operations,existence,management and survival is a question that must be address carefully.Ofcourse when an institution runs through ages, recognises what it takes to survive, then later sees others surving they may need to raise thesame doubts the author of this article sticks to.More troubling, I must say, is not that there are not well willed groups out there(I dare not called them churches)but how daunting it is to draw clear cut lines between the secrecy of what they abide to and the sacredness they purport to mankind.I tell you, there are many who have come in this way and before long the real motive seems deeply embeded in material gains as well as strong secret linnings.

However my view about this is that for once when we address such issues publicly like the author of the comment above (radical for christ) just did, we must be clear of our opinion so well express by avoiding using alot of quotations since our views whether referenced by verses is not necessarilly unique.It is not a sermon, for most cases that have been imposed to be considered the truth. Moreso I wonder if we track the ongoing evolution in christain living,alot of names and adjective out there to decribe our first impressions.Just right here we have a said Radical for Christ,elsewhere there is Giants in the Lord, heretically we here of Bishop titles awarded indiscriminately. Mortal man, trace your mortality, hold less strong to the debates of the world because no one holds the truth,therefore when the government address issues of the state, churches clarify issues living ,then left on you to address issue of your personal evolvement while spiritual atainment left just for God to judge.

I will be back!!

Save Me

WE have fallen short of the glory of God.What I will advice the government to do, is to ask the pastors or preachers to present thier theological credentials which might be use as a parametre in determining thier knowledge of the scripture.
I know so many victims who have been bankrupt by Nigerian fake pastors in kumba and Vanish in thin air.. My friend who is a pastor has been detain twice for a case of rape, I am not afraid to tell his name if you ask I will tell you.
Catholic Church, Pressbeterian Church,Moslems,Baptist do not make poblicity because the scription is not for sale... We claim to God that we are inteligent, so he has put infront of us good and bad to choose.
What, most pentacostal churches are practising is call "Religious harrasment and biblical terorism" They most be call to other.. girls are most of thier victim.
