Judgment Starts at the House of the Lord.

I believe God was kicked out of our nation because of the backsliding Christians who swallowed a bad teaching hook line and sinker. Somewhere back in the mid 1950’s Christians were taught an insidious heresy that they adopted as from God. The heresy was that Christians were taught to accept it, and to turn the other check not to be judgmental. For being judgmental they were passing judgment on themselves. So in order for we as Christians to be good lights for Christ in our country every time someone ridiculed God, His holy word, His church, His people, the ordinances we practice, the prayers we raised, we simply, sat by and said and did nothing!

We turned the other check! We did not judge the offense for we considered it to be against the teachings of Jesus. Although those are the words of Jesus, they are not the intentions of our Lord. All we needed to do is realize this and look deeper into God's truthful word. Which truth the church teachers ignored and taught heresy to our countries downfall.

You will find that on every occasion in which Jesus was personally attacked he did nothing in response, he turned the other cheek. But whenever someone offended God, His House, His People, His Word, Jesus not only judged them as being of the devil but he turned over the tables of the money changers in the temple twice. He called the Pharisees a bag of dead men's bones, he confronted and challenged the Scribes and Leaders of the Jewish community over their interpretation of God's word, he even called them the sons of your father, the Devil."

So if Jesus is our role model for living in this world, then we are to not react to attacks on us, but we are to die, if necessary, to defend our God.
Paul went on to back this up in his letters to the church of God at Corinth, saying not only should we judge so-called Christians, but that we should put them out of the church, and have nothing more to do with them, not even to eat with such a one.

Then he added we are to judge the body of Christ (the church of God) from within, but we are not to judge those who are outside the church. He was saying that the so-called brother had sin in his life that he was not repenting for, so he had to go out of the church before the world got the wrong idea about God's church.

He was to be treated as one who is outside the church in the world. When he, or any other person in the world, acknowledges their sin and repents of it, then they are welcomed into the church as brothers and sisters in the Lord. Where sin is, God is not. And where God is, sin cannot be. God’s real warriors of old are our example like David and Goliath. David says who is this uncircumcised Philistine who dares come to defile the name of our God and then David killed Goliath. We have all of our examples and our instructions so let’s be more defending of our God and the things of God. Jesus when he returns will not turn his cheek nor put up with anything that would defile God, heaven, or Gods people.
