Why do far right Christians preach just faith alone gets me the drug addicted in heaven though I the sinner struggle and lie to god?
You ever tried stopping an addiction cold turkey. It's tough, tougher than most people can handle. Plus if every Christian actually lived that way, the church would not have had that many scandals. The way I see Christianity and the Bible and the way I actually hope they would bloody portray it. Everyone is flawed, everyone sins, everyone has their issues, no one is perfect, no one person is morally higher or better than anyone else. Their God recognised this and sent his son as their "get out of jail free" card so to speak, basically their way of bypassing the sins if they at least tried to live by his word. To many Christians take the high and mighty attitude, which makes them bigger hypocrites when their flaws are revealed.
We are all sinners. Jesus came to save sinners. And believers are still sinners (1 John 1:8). Believing in Jesus means being forgiven all sins past and future (Acts 10:43). If you think you have to be "good enough" for heaven, then you don't believe the Gospel, and you are going to hell. Believers try to be better, by the power of the Holy Spirit, but we are still sinners. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that Jesus is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing in Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in Jesus to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven when you die, because you believe in Jesus! It is too late to be saved, after death. P.S. Why do you put politics into everything you post? Jesus doesn't take your political views into His truth.
So what is your first language?
The Bible is clear on who is and isn’t a child of god and if their a grain of truth and faith through being a good person and not a hypocrite can get you to heaven ie Pharisees ie all other non Abrahamic religions
NOPE NOT LYING AT ALL APPARENTLY YOU CAN'T READ. WE HAVE ALWAYS SAY REPENT REPENT MEANS TURNING FROM YOUR SIN. LEARN TO UNDERSTAND
If your faith does not motivate you to do right, it is no good. Matthew 7:21.
See, that's part of what's really f*cked up about puritanical religious moralism… It makes you hate yourself, when you really shouldn't have to! Drug addiction definitely is a problem. But it is not a moral failing! And it does not make you a bad person! It is a problem because it negatively affects your life and your health. That's all. And.. I'm obviously not a Christian. But I've got a strong sense of what the divine is to me, in my own life. And the thing is..? I'm still loved by that place, no matter how f*cked up I am! No matter how many mistakes I make! And I don't have to hide anything.. Even the parts of me that I refuse to tell any other human about, because I'm ashamed of them? They're all out in the open, and they don't make me any less loved. And just.. The fact that you would see God as this demanding, judgmental, authoritarian ruler, that's going to judge you for not being clean right now..? Rather than something that always infinitely loves you, that you can tell EVERYTHING without feeling ashamed of it, and that you can use as a support to get clean, if that is what you want? Is just pretty darn sad to me… But I think it also reflects how society at large treats drug addicts. How ignorant and judgmental people often are! And.. it sounds to me like you've internalized that, to rather a huge extent. So you now think you're a worthless piece of sh*t. Which you're not!! We've ALL got our struggles! Every single last one of us! And yours being with addiction..? Does not make you any worse than any of us! In fact..? There are far more harmful struggles out there. As yours..? At least hurts only you, and no one else! Also, speaking as someone whose best friend is a former drug addict..? I think it's really f*cked up that even now, after she has quit speed, (which used to be her drug of choice), she still feels all kinds of guilty for just smoking a joint with people! Because she thinks she has failed herself, and the whole nine yards... And she's adopted this mindset that she should not do ANY drugs, ever! Which is just VERY black-and-white, and perhaps unrealistic.. I mean, if that's what certain former addicts need to do, in order to NOT spiral back into addiction..? Then I respect and support that, for sure! But just... this whole yucky guilt-trip, that people like my friend sign themselves up for, if they slip up even SLIGHTLY? Is just all kinds of f*cked up... There is absolutely nothing inherently wrong about sharing a joint with people, on a rare occasion! And it is really NOT something former addicts should have to beat themselves up over. <Sigh.> :S
Martin Luther tried living the monastic life and couldn't handle it. That's when he invented Sola Fide.
