For the record: not all christians are Christians

14 January 2013, 11:00

A heads-up to all the anti-christian commentators out there - you need to address your hate-speech to the correct group of 'christians' please. 

The first group are the Christ-followers. They are utterly sincere about their belief in God, fully aware of their own sinful nature and their need for a saviour, and seek after God with all their hearts. They read and study their Bibles and have a personal one-on-one relationship with God their Father. They are spiritually born-again and strive to not compromise on God’s will for their lives. They try to lead by example and the fruit of their lives is goodness and goodwill towards everyone.  Some of them are even educated and well-read. They do not feel any need to prove the existence of God because His handiwork is clear for everyone to see and science continually unravels more and more evidence of His amazing Intelligent Design. They understand that the world we live in is imperfect and corrupt and that it is infantile to blame God for everything that is\goes wrong.  They know that the world everybody longs for (where DNA is perfect, sickness, death and disaster do not exist and society lives in perfect harmony) is called Heaven and is freely available to anyone who chooses to put their faith in Jesus Christ.  In church circles they are known as the ‘critical spirits’ because they try to correct church leaders (and followers) regarding false doctrines (e.g. the ‘prosperity gospel’) and hypocritical practices (e.g. tithing to get blessings and wealth).

The second group are called the Pharisees. These are the ones who think that they can impress God and men with their religious practices. They are prominently visible (and vocal) in their church and social circles and tell everyone what wonderful people they are. They think they are better than everyone else and are not shy to say so. They have a working knowledge of scriptures (enough to sound ‘holier-than-thou’)  and use this to condemn anyone who does not belong to their special group. The followers (also known as sheep) have a ‘proxy’ relationship with God via their pastor. He is the only one who can read and understand Scripture so they get all their spiritual food from him\her. The leaders in this group consider themselves the ‘anointed ones’ who are untouchable and above correction.

The third group are the groupies. These people go to church to find boyfriends and girlfriends. They act like saints for an hour on Sundays and live like devils for the rest of the week. Basically they are chistians because they don’t want to be called muslims or atheists.

The fourth group are the sects. These people are crazy. They believe in a god but they do not believe or adhere to the Bible. They have angels in their services, pass the ‘fire’ from one to the other and believe they are the only ones who have supernatural power. The fact is that they often do have supernatural experiences and manifestations in their meetings but have never learnt to discern between good and evil spirits. Anything goes as long as it feels good.

Lastly there are the ex-christians. These people are the most deluded because they think it is possible to actually know God and then to stop believing in Him. The truth is that these people actually WANT to be satanists, whose tenet is ‘everything you want, whenever you want it, without feeling any guilt’. They NEVER knew God, and one day they will find out that He never knew them either.
