“Shame on You, CHRISTIANS [?] – 101” …Blog.
“Most American CHRISTIANS”… know more about Politics: than “Bible Doctrine”…?
*** (Titus 2:11-to-15) For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all people. [Psalms 98:2]
(Tit 2:12) It trains us to RENOUNCE ungodly living and worldly passions SO that we might live Sensible, Honest, and Godly lives in the present world
(Tit 2:13) as we Wait for the blessed hope and the glorious Appearance of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. [Zachariah 12:10]
(Tit 2:14) He [Christ] gave Himself for us to set us free from every wrong and to cleanse us so that we could be His Special People who are enthusiastic about good works.
(Tit 2:15) These are the things you should Say. [1Peter 3:15] Encourage and Refute: with Full Authority [Ezekiel 2:7]. Do Not let anyone look down on you.
*** (2Timothy 4:1-to-4) Therefore I solemnly witness before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, Who is going to judge the living and the dead according to His appearance and His kingdom,
(2Tim 4:2) “PREACH the WORD”, be “Instant” in season and out of season, Reprove, Rebuke, Exhort with all long-suffering and Doctrine.
(2Tim 4:3) For a time will be when they will “NOT” endure sound doctrine: but they will heap up teachers to themselves, according to their own lusts, tickling the ear.
(2Tim 4:4) And they will turn away their ears, from the “TRUTH” [John 17:17] and will be turned to Myths. [Fables]

*** (Jeremiah 1:8) Do NOT be afraid of their Faces; for I [God] am with you to deliver you, says the LORD Jehovah.
*** (Ezekiel 2:7) And you shall speak My Words to them, whether they will hear or whether they will forbear, for they are [most] rebellious.
Please may I have your… “EAR?” No, I do not mean your real ear, but that past of You, that cognitively examines that which you, “See, Hear or Feel.” Did You know, that some preachers use ‘Emotions’ to drive people into making a decision for Christ? Did You ever wonder WHY: so many say they “Know HIM” and yet… “Do NOT know their Bibles”…? Perhaps may I bold enough to SAY… “Most American CHRISTIANS”… know more about Politics: than “Bible Doctrine”…? Most cannot take their Bibles and Defend with ‘Chapters & Verses’… “What they truly believe!” They simply “Believe Everything”… WITHOUT QUESTION…! And so long as the WORDS: “Jesus, Bible, Prophecy, Faith” & a plethora of other Religious sounding words are “USED!” May I ask You… “Do You TEST Everything with the Scriptures”…? Please answer, “Yes or NO”…? What about… “Acts 17:11”…? What did Christ Jesus say about “TRUTH” in the latter times…?
*** (Matthew 24:23-24-25) Then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ! Or, There! Do not believe it.
(Matt 24:24) For false Christ’s and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders; so much so that, if it were possible, they would deceive even the elect.
(Matt 24:25) Behold, I [Jesus] -> have told you beforehand.
*** (2Corinthians 11:4) For if someone comes along and preaches Another Jesus than the one we preached, or should you receive a Different Spirit from the one you received or a Different Gospel from the one you accepted; you are All Too willing to Listen.
Never Make a Gospel Appeal to People's Emotions
*** (Jude 1:3-4) Having made all haste to write to you about the common salvation; beloved, I had need to write to you; to exhort you to ‘Contend Earnestly’ for the [True] Faith; once delivered to the saints.
(Jude 1:4) For some people have slipped in; among you unnoticed. They were written about long ago as being deserving of this condemnation; because they are ungodly. They turn the grace of our God into uncontrollable lust and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

*** (Acts 17:11) And these were more noble than those of Thessalonica; in that they received the Word with all readiness of mind; and searched the Scriptures daily; to see if those things were so. [Or Not?]
On many of the Internet Social Sites… anytime of the day or night: one can see Christians [?] posting “Something about Politics!” And many posts, about ‘Constitutional Rights Violated!’ And 2nd Amendment rights violated! And the LISTS go… “ON, & On & on”…! Yet FEW, very few ‘Defend’ the Bible and its “TRUTHS!” There are MANY False… “Preachers, Prophets, Apostles, Evangelists & Others… “Falsely Claiming: Special Anointing!” Christ Jesus simply called them, “Blind Leaders of the Blind!” Again, as we come to towards of the END of: “Times of the Gentiles” [Luke 21:24]… will there be ‘MORE or LESS’… “TRUTH”…? Can You take your Bible and ‘Answer That”…?

*** (Luke 4:4) Jesus answered him, "It is written, 'One must Not live on bread alone; but on every word of God." [Matt 4:4 & Deut. 8:1-2-3]
Are You Truly Born Again, by the Holy Spirit of GOD…? Does His Indwelling Holy Spirit… reside within You? [Romans 8:9] Do You meet with Him, “Daily” in His Holy Word…? [2Corinthains 4:16] Are You growing in His “Grace & Understanding”, and in the “Nurture & Correction” from Him…? Do You readily “Speak OUT: for HIM”, about His Holy Truth, found within His Holy Word…? Or are You just putting on a ‘Religious Air’ about yourself. Do You defend Christ Jesus the Passover Lamb of God… with His Holy Word…? And after asking all this… How LONG have You known “HIM”…? “____” years…?

*** (1Corinthains 6:5-6) For I speak to your shame. Is it so that there is NOT a wise one among you, NOT even one in your midst who shall be able TO judge between his brother?
(1Cor 6:6) But brother goes to law with brother, and that Before the unbelievers.
*** (Hebrews 5:11-to-14) We have much to say about this, but it is difficult to explain because you have become too lazy to understand.
(Heb 5:12) In fact, though by now you should be teachers, you still need someone to teach you the basic truths of God's word. You have become people who need milk instead of solid food.
(Heb 5:13) For everyone who lives on milk is still a baby and is inexperienced in the message of righteousness.
(Heb 5:14) But solid food is for mature people, whose minds are trained by practice to distinguish good from evil.
