Who Do You Serve?

I'm sick and tired of the Church bending over backwards to accommodate the secular world! Honestly folks, does the Church not have a backbone? What is wrong today? I can't understand how someone can accommodate Christ and the world in everything at the same time.

"No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon." Matthew 6:24, KJV.

So-called Christians today go around and you can't tell the differance between some people who call themselves Christian and the world. They go around cussing, lying, cheating, engaging in pre-marital sex etc... honestly it's like the end of Animal Farm where you can't tell a differance between the pigs and the humans.

Let me make something clear: YOU CAN'T SERVE THE WORLD AND GOD AT THE SAME TIME!! If you think you can then one of two things is happening, you don't really know what serving the world is, or you don't really know what serving God is. In most cases I see personally it is people don't really know what serving God is. When I was at Boy's State I was talking to a guy in my cabin who thought it was rather peculiar that I wouldn't date hardly any of the girls in my school, he asked why. Why? Because they aren't Christians! He replied "I think we're all Christians here, just some of us stronger believers." The thing was, that guy wouldn't know a Bible if you knocked him over the head with an original Guttenburg (the first Bible every actually printed). This guy didn't know a thing about Christianity; and therein is the problem. People think they can adopt their parents faith, and people think "everyone I hang out with claims to be Christian. Everyone I hang out with has sex, cusses, lies, steals, etc... Therefore it must be ok for Christians to do this stuff." Well it's not ok, the mentality that everyone who is in America is a Christian, just some not as strong believers is a bunch of fried bologna.

If someone is a true Christian that involves a commitment to Christ; you're either Christian or you're not.

Some say, well I can confess so I can keep sinning and confessing. NO! as Paul put it "Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid." Romans 6:1-2, KJV. Jesus said if you love Him you must obey His commandments, and loving the Lord your God with all your heart is the greatest commandment, therefore we can conclude that if you are not putting your best toward obeying Christ's commands you do not really love Him that much and you are breaking the greatest commandment.

So I challenge you today "And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that [were] on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD." Joshua 24:15, KJV. So either server the world or serve God, but you CANNOT serve both!
