“We shall find ourselves out of adjustment to the ways of the world, and increasingly so as we make progress in the holy way. We shall acquire a new viewpoint; a new different psychology will be formed within us; a new power will begin to surprise us by its upsurgings and its outgoings.” A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God

If you look like the world, there is a problem. If you think like the world, there is problem. If you act like the world, there is a problem. If you fit into the world, there is problem. If you belong to Jesus, you should be the opposite of the world.

Far too many Christian seem hell-bent on fitting into the world and into their environment within a secular society. Yet, if they know Christ and are growing in Him daily, they should be becoming just the opposite. They should increasingly find themselves maladjusted to their society.

Secular psychology and psychiatry tell us that we must look, act, and believe this way or we are not considered normal. Normal is so relative. Normal in a twisted society does not mean much. A secular worldview is worthless to the dedicated Follower of Christ. As we grow and mature in Christ, our worldview should become a Christian Worldview and our psychology of life should be the psychology of Scripture. Anything less is to sell ourselves short of all that God wishes for us to have and obtain in our godly mindset. We are to be Christ-minded not Man-minded.

Once we learn to seek the mind of Christ the power of Christ will become ours. Christ cannot trust a secular mind and secular heart with His power or it would be their ruin. Only the godly mind and heart can appropriately handle the power the Holy Spirit of God has to offer.

Which will it be? Man’s ways or God’s Ways? Man’s psychology or God’s Principles? A secular worldview or a Christian Worldview? A heart given to the world or a heart given completely to God? The mind of man or the mind of Christ? The power of the world or the power of the Almighty God?

This blog will not be for the faint of heart or the easily offended. It will not be in any way politically correct. It will make every effort to share the truth in love, [Ephesians 4:11-16], to a decaying and dying society and church. I share what I share not to hurt, harm, or offend any person[s] or group; I do it because Christ Standard and Truth is not being represented by enough of His Followers and I do it out of love. I love enough to tell His Truth.

Ephesians 4:11-16 NKJV

11And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

God Will Give The Stubborn What They Seek

People are seeking relief and revitalization not through true liberty but through a secondary form of slavery. Conformity to societal norms and needs is socialism. Conformity to God’s Word and Principles is freedom, liberty, and the fulfillment of one’s personal purpose.

Psalm 81:8–16 (NKJV)

8 “Hear, O My people, and I will admonish you!

O Israel, if you will listen to Me!

9 There shall be no foreign god among you;

Nor shall you worship any foreign god.

10 I am the Lord your God,

Who brought you out of the land of Egypt;

Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.

11 “But My people would not heed My voice,

And Israel would have none of Me.

12 So I gave them over to their own stubborn heart,

To walk in their own counsels.

13 “Oh, that My people would listen to Me,

That Israel would walk in My ways!

14 I would soon subdue their enemies,

And turn My hand against their adversaries.

15 The haters of the Lord would pretend submission to Him,

But their fate would endure forever.

16 He would have fed them also with the finest of wheat;

And with honey from the rock I would have satisfied you.”

It appears that most of the people in America need, or want, to go even further down the path of destruction before they realize that God has a better way and they need Him to show them His path.

In the interim, may God Divinely protect His people and preserve them from the effects of societal destruction and decay.

Did You Invite the Boss

“God goes where He’s wanted.” Philip Yancey

A group might ask, ‘Why is God not moving among us? Why is nothing happening, here at our _________?’ Most likely the reason is God is not wanted there. God may have been invited but He is not truly desired.

It is much like an office party you intend to have at your house one weekend. You really want to have the party, you really want the company of all your coworkers and you dream about all the fun everyone will have. What you do not want however is for the boss to come. Yet, if you have half a brain, you are not going to have a weekend get-together with the entire office and not invite your boss. That would be career suicide. Therefore, what do you do; you invite the boss even though secretly within your heart you do not really want the boss to be there. When and if he shows up you will make nice and kiss up to him as need; but your heart wishes something would have happened, which prevented him from making it to your well planned, well organized, much anticipated and greatly desired party.

Do you really want the boss there? Is God really invited into ____________?
