Pagans and Christians can NOT be Friends!

Christians do not need to understand pagans, and I could care less whether pagans understand me. Apparently, there was a blogging event that brought the two interested groups together and made a buzz among the serious bloggers. As the two groups met to defend their beliefs, the rules were changed. Each group was instructed to attack their beliefs rather than the other groups. To be critical and harsh on the things about their beliefs that they feel is wrong. To the amazement of all of the readers, each group and their audience came away with a better understanding of the issues, themselves and their beliefs, and for the first time, Christians and pagans were able to talk openly together in a new joining of their “one world” connected mentality.

BIG PROBLEM…The Word of God has told Christians repeatedly to avoid the abominations and idolatrous believers:

2 Corinthians 6:14-18

“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in [them]; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” (2 Corinthians 6:14-18 AV)

The Word of God has told us repeatedly to avoid “pretend Christians” who are followers of false doctrine:

Titus 3:9-11

“But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. A man that is an heretic after the first and second admonition reject; knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.” (Titus 3:9-11 AV)

To avoid the company of fornicators, covetous, extortioners, idolaters in the world, and in the midst of gathered Christians:

1 Corinthians 5:9-1

“I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.” (1 Corinthians 5:9-13 AV)

It doesn’t get much plainer than that! The Commission of Jesus Christ that tasks us to spread His Gospel throughout the world, does not mean to go to the wicked and evil worshippers of false gods and attack your faith in their presence! Is there not a sane Christian left in this world? Does anyone out there understand what type of position this places Christian faith in? Does anyone know how this practice attacks our Lord Jesus Christ and his followers?

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I should not have to remind any of you to avoid the wicked of the world. That avoidance should be your natural desire as a result of your new birth into Jesus Christ. At this point in our times, it is critical that we are extra observant among our own gatherings, in our own fellowships, in our own congregations, that the wicked people of the world do not destroy us.

IT IS CRUCIAL that Christians avoid fellowship and friendship with the idolatrous people of the world. IT IS CRITICAL that Christians separate themselves from known wickedness, and gather together in the congregation of fellow Christians to uphold each other in these terrible days. And for God’s sake: STOP ATTACKING MY LORD JESUS CHRIST, his faithful followers, and their beliefs in the midst of the wicked worldly!

I could care less whether a pagan understands me or my faith! They are not a part of my Kingdom, and I will never be a part of theirs!

Luke 6:22-23

“Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you [from their company], and shall reproach [you], and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake. Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward [is] great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.” (Luke 6:22-23 AV)
