Lest Ye Be Judged

Tolerant Christians have fallen for a trap…Satan’s, I dare say. Edith Schaeffer exposes Aaron, the priest and brother of Moses as a type. The hoards are at the base of Mount Sinai, waiting for Moses to return from high upon the mountain. God is at that moment delivering His Gift to His children…the road map, their guide for a long, happy life together. (More on this delivery later) The people of Israel (Jacob) unabashedly beg for an image to worship…okay, so their faith is weak. Who am I to judge their fickleness? Don’t we all turn to some idol in our lives, every day? We are weak, but He is strong! But Aaron “who knew so thoroughly the power of God and who He was”, the leader, surrenders to the will of the people and promotes the establishment of a false religion, a fake god with no blood, the golden calf. Mrs. Schaeffer puts it like this: “The ‘name of God’ was placed on [the calf].” “These be thy gods, Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt” ~Exodus 32:4 Ergo the worship ceremony! “And Aaron is leading it as an outstanding example of all the false religious leaders who would say words with twisted meaning, who would take God’s Word, or the words and put them in a different context.” P 71 What seems to be truth but in a different light. The deceiver can put a lovely lighted veil on his dirty deeds. How else would he convince Godly men like Aaron to play his game? Leaders, teachers, preachers will be judged.

“Not many of you should presume to be teachers, my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.” ~James 3:1
I am putting my soul on the line, every time my words hit the page. I am setting myself up to be judged. Tolerating impurities in Church teachings could very well mean the downfall of church as we know it. Just as Israel, Jerusalem and the temple itself were condemned in the time of the prophets, God will not endure false teachings forever. Here is a time and place for judgments. God’s Proverbs nudge us toward critical intolerance by providing a plumb line for righteousness and wisdom.
Fellow Christian bloggers, I am begging you to keep me, and each other in line, according to God’s Divine Truth. I am asking ye bloggers to “judge, lest ye be judged.” (continued in the morrow)
