Fine Tuning

Here are some common modern day fallacies about Christianity:

Righteous acts do not make a person righteous.

Jesus did not come to make bad people good. He came to make dead people live.

When I sin it is not me that sins, but sin that dwells in my flesh.

Reading the Holy Bible isn’t the same as studying.

Religion says do. Jesus says done.

It’s not about religion it’s about relationship.

God loves you unconditionally.

Baptism is just a public display of faith.

These fallacies may sound true, but in your heart and that nagging part of your mind – you know something just isn’t quite right about these statements. Pay attention to those feelings, keep exercising your discernment.

Fine tuning comes from experience. Reading the Holy Bible is study and through it you can learn the difference between right and wrong. Recognizing a half truth or wishy-washy statement can save you grief in the future and protect and strengthen your faith.

Many preachers and teachers of the gospel claim God’s love is unconditional.

Why would you want a God who claims to love you, but doesn’t care what you do?

These teachers simply don’t understand love. Love says do better. It says stop doing things that harm both me and you. The gospel says that if you don’t keep his Commandments there will be consequences. His Commandments are established to make our lives better and as guidelines for a stronger, healthier relationship with God.

When you hear a preacher say, Christianity isn’t about reading the Bible, it isn’t about keeping rules and regulations, it isn’t even about attending Church, it’s about relationship. Run. Find a new congregation.

Relationship is reading the Holy Bible, it is keeping his Commandments, it’s about worship in his house and at home. Love is made of truth and honor. There is no such thing as unconditional love.

If you’re new to Christianity read John 3:16. It’s the first condition. Believe.
