Is your Christianity truly Biblical Christianity?

Or is it religious tradition wearing a thread worn disguise pretending to be something that it is not?

As long as everyone else you associate with claims to be a Christian, pretends the same thing and none of you looks into the mirror of God's Word then the charade can continue. No one will upset the apple cart (or the money changer's tables) and the show can go on.

But of course that will only work for so long. Sooner or later we will all individually have the 'opportunity' to explain ourselves, our lives and our version of Christianity to none other than Jesus Himself.

"Lord, Lord...' we will say. You can read the rest of it here. The script has already been written. Actually, you might not want to click on that link if you are allergic to conviction.

What to do.. what to do. Well there are two paths to choose from: the one most folks will chose and then there is the other one. Read all of Matthew chapters 5-7 and you will get the picture.

The people Jesus was speaking to were already on the Religious Traditions path. He was pointing that out and at the same time explaining what His original intent was. He hasn't change His mind either.

Examine yourself and see if you really are a Christian according to Jesus. Examine yourself and see if you really are in the faith. Get mad at me for challenging you if you must but understand that God's Word commands us to examine ourselves.
