Worldly Christians?

Bible (Photo credit: Sean MacEntee)
Why do some many Christians look more like the world than a Christian? It seems that Christians think that they can pick and choose what they want from the Bible. Do they not know that the Bible is not a buffet? In order to go to heaven, you must put your trust in Jesus completely. The evidence of your trust in Jesus is walking in his statues. If you come and simply say some words and then pick the parts of the Bible that you like, you will still go to hell. 

Example the Bible clearly says that a homosexual lifestyle is wrong. God may allow you to live that way because of your disobedience to him. However, that means you will go to hell. Plain and simple. Revelation 21:8 says, "But people who are cowardly, unfaithful, detestable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars will find themselves in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. This is the second death."

Another example, the Bible says that being drunk is wrong. If you have been drunk in the past, repent. Otherwise the Bible says, "Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality,  idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions,  envy, drunkennessorgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God."

For those who do not know what orgies are below is the dictionary definition.

wild, drunken or licentious festivity or revelry.
any actions or proceedings marked by unbridled indulgenceof passions: an orgy of killing.
orgies, (in ancient Greece) esoteric religious rituals, especially in the worship of Demeter orcharacterized in later times by wild dancing, singing, and drinking.
Informal a boisterous, rowdy party.

This means that those who like to have or go to parties that include drinking and wild dancing will not go to heaven, unless they repent. 
Repent means to turn from the sin. In other words stop doing it. In addition, during this process you ask Jesus for forgiveness. 

Notice that this scripture says that you will not inherit the kingdom of God. That means you will go to Hell. Also, notice that sexual immorality is included in this scripture. Those of you will practice such activity will go to hell unless you repent. I would like for everyone to go to heaven that is why I am trying to warn people. I have noticed that some Preachers have started sugar coating the truth. Unfortunately the same rules still apply. Therefore, sugar coating the truth only causes more harm than good. It is wrong to pat someone on the back and tell them everything is OK, when they are obvious living in sin. 

For those Preachers who still preach all of the Bible, keep up the good work. Just remember that Jesus said to love the people. All people need to know that they are loved and cared for. Many people do not like to hear that their lifestyle is not acceptable. Often times they will get very angry with you. That is OK. Just remember to keep praying for them and trying to show the Love of Jesus.
