No Such Thing

as a

Liberal Christian

We seem to be hearing more and more today about liberalism or conservatism in many areas of life.  Now we are hearing the news media and others talk about liberal Christians versus conservative Christians. This view should never arise when pertaining to Christianity.

Listen carefully: There should be no such thing as a “liberal Christian”! 

Even a so-called “conservative Christian’s” view could be messed up – depending on whom or what they always base their views on.

If asked what type of Christian you are, our response should be – I follow Jesus.  I believe and do just what Jesus did.

Whatever our ideas were before becoming a Christian – that was the past.  We are now required to change.  
Rom. 12:2 tells us to “be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” 

We are to change and become like Christ – period!

John 12:50 - And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak. 

This is Jesus speaking!  He wasn’t liberal in His thinking or speaking – He was one with the Father.

Do you recall what Jesus said when Philip asked Him to “show them the Father?”

John 14:9 - Jesus said unto him, have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father.

The same should be true of our lives.  When people see us they should know what we believe and think by what we do and say every day.  We should not waver due to what is, or is not happening in the world. 

God DOES NOT change – EVER!  When we follow God and put Him first place in our lives, in all we do, then we will be blessed.  The same is true of the world.

John 14:31 - But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. 

If this was good enough for Jesus, then this should be good enough for us.  It does not matter what century we live in and how times have changed!  God knows just where this world stands and He knows what works to get us out of trouble.

John 14:10 - Believe thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me?  The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwells in me, he doeth the works.

John 14:23 - Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

We are the light of the world –our light cannot be out part of the time.  The world has to know where to come to get help – at all times!  

If the airport turned its runway light out just as a jet was coming in for landing, the pilot would not know where to go.

If a lighthouse turned off its light at night, then ships may become shipwrecked.

The church (the body of believers) cannot, and must not be divided – on anything.  The Bible says that a house divided cannot stand!

Paul lets the readers of his epistles know that he worked very hard at writing down the whole will of God.  And when a person knows the whole will of God, then that should be, and must be our will also.

The world cannot get saved, healed and delivered when the church is wishy-washy, or liberal in their beliefs! 

Once a person gets saved and begins coming to church, we, the church, cannot give him or her mixed signals.  Well – anything is OK – as long as you don’t hurt anyone.  NO!  The church must lead that new believer into all the good that God has for him or her.  We must teach them how to stay under the protective covering of Almighty God.

John 17:14-16 - I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou should take them out of the world, but that thou should keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

That doesn’t mean to go live on another planet, or tuck ourselves away and become a hermit.  We still live in the world, but we do not have to join in on the world’s way of believing and doing things.  

When we were born again, we came out of the stinking kingdom of darkness, with all its evil, and we came into the Kingdom of God, with all its rights and privileges that Jesus, Himself, obtained for us.

Whom do we want to please – God or the world?  It’s our choice.  And remember, one day we will stand – alone without anyone else beside us and give an answer to Jesus for how we thought and conducted ourselves in this world.

So, I pose this question to you again – what kind of Christian are you?   I want each an every one of us to be a light to the world so they can see Jesus and God in us every time we respond to anything   So we should respond – I follow Jesus in everything.  What He says in the Word of God (the Bible) that is what I believe, follow and do.
