Christianity. Exclusive? Or Inclusive?

Is Christianity a Private Club?



The Answer is Yes. "Christianity" IS a Private Club. Yes, there is only one way to join. Jesus. No. They do not believe any God will do. Yes, they are closed minded about that. Yes, they are a closed minded bunch. They actually believe that Sin is Sin and Good is Good. They have no Compassion? Well, if you mean that they are not willing to accept someone who is in Sin, and not expect them to repent their Sin, so that they do not hurt their feelings and or, because they do not "Change with the Times," then YES. They have no Compassion. They do not care what Man has to say. Nor do they really care what people in Black Robs that sit behind closed doors, Rule to be Laws of the Land. Oh, "Christians" are to follow the Law of the Land, until it contradicts with the Law of God. In that case, sorry, God wins..

However, here is the thing. "Christianity," True "Christianity," is NOT a Religion. It IS a Way of life. A Way of God. He wants to have a one on one relationship with you. 24-7. He doesn't really care if you are a good little "Christian" Muslim, Jew, Buddhist, whatever. All these, and in a lot of cases, Christianity included, have become nothing more than Man-made Traditions and some have NOTHING to do with the One True God.

One thing you must understand clearly is this..
"Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:" {Acts 10:34}
It does not matter who you are, where you are from. It does not matter how much money you got. It does not matter if you are in the Blood Line of a Great person in History. Nothing matters to God, Save one thing, do you accept HIS Way?

Jesus even tells us plainly....
"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." {Revelation 3:20}
Read that part again.."if any man " ANY MAN.. Jesus is knocking on YOUR Door. Do you hear Him?

The Prophet Joel said this...
"And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call." (Joel 2:32)
Again, read that again.. "whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered:" WHOSOEVER.

In his letter to the Church in Rome, Paul writes this..
"For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Romans 10:12-13)
Again? "whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" WHOSOEVER. He goes on a little later to say why..
"For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's." {Romans 14:8}
He repeats this Truth in his letter to the Church in Galatia
"There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise." {Galatians 3:28-29}
Why? Because "God is no respecter of persons." Peter tells us this..
"The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." {2 Peter 3:9}
Here are those words again.. "not willing that any should perish" ANY " but that all should come to repentance." ALL. God is NOT some old bearded dude, sitting on His Throne, just waiting with baited breath for you to screw up, so He can send you to Hell. He deals with us the way we are, because He loves us. He wants ALL to come to Him.

The sad truth is, we know that this is not going to be the case. Many will never accept the Facts,

A- There is a God.
B - He created all things and Loves US.
C- He loves us so, that He came and died for us.
D- Jesus is the only Way to get to God. For He IS God.
E- The way is open for all to find it.

Look again at all those passages.. Read the Words.. "ANY" "WHOSOEVER" "ALL" So you see, the Club, although exclusive, You MUST believe He is God. You must believe He loves us. You must believe that Jesus is the only Way, Truth, and Life. IS, at the same time, all INCLUSIVE, open to all who wish to join. The membership for you is free. That too has already been Paid. It was Paid in the Blood of Jesus The Christ..

Do you know Jesus as your Savior? Have you been adopted into the Family of God? If not, say this Prayer. Right now. Wherever you may be. Say it in your own words, and do not doubt in your heart. God will hear you. He will send the Spirit of Life to you. Let us Pray..

"Oh heavenly Father, Lord God. I am a sinner. I know this. I know there is nothing I can do to change that. But I know you can. I accept Jesus's sacrifice for me. I repent my sins. Please send the Spirit of Adoption into my life. Help me to get to know the real you. Save me. Please. In the name of Jesus, Amen!"


That's it. It really is that simple. Now go tell someone what you have just done. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." {Romans 10:9} You need to find a Church that God leads you to, and be Baptized the way Jesus said to be. You are now a Child of God. A new Creature. You "have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." {Colossians 3:10}

If you want to tell me, or comment, question, give testimonials, or just say "Hi," the Email is opntalk@gmail.com

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen. {2 Corinthians 13}

Until next time, be Blessed, be a Blessing, and Jesus IS Lord..
