Believers, Pastors and Bishops Overruling God’s authority. It don't take all of that.

It amazes me how Bishops, Pastors, Leaders, and so many in the church are overruling God’s authority. It seems that when the Word of God says one thing church leaders are redefining God’s intents. Somebody’s preaching another gospel. Below is one examples:

James 4:4 KJV
Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.


Romans 12:2 KJV
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.


(Source Webster)
Conformed: 1: to be similar or identical ; also : to be in agreement or harmony; to act in accordance with prevailing standards or customs

Is holy hip hop a form of conforming to the world?
Is club banging music for Christians conforming to this world?
Are Christian woman dressing more and more like worldly women? (trampish)
Are Christian men dressing more like thugs?
Is Christian conduct becoming to out of hand?
Can you live any way you want and call yourself a Christian?

(Source Webster)
Worldly: 1 : of, relating to, or devoted to this world and its pursuits rather than to religion or spiritual affairs

EW,

Is holy hip hop a form of conforming to the world?

Not at all. I love Gospel Rap. There's nothing wrong with listening to it. Im quite sure that Gospel isnt the only thing you're listening to. I love new age music, r&b, smooth jazz, Israeli music(not all of it is religious).

Is club banging music for Christians conforming to this world?

Definitely not!

Are Christian woman dressing more and more like worldly women? (trampish)

Some of them are.

Are Christian men dressing more like thugs?

How exactly does a thug dress? You'd be suprised of how many thugs that are out here that dress like your nerd next door, or your average Joe.

Is Christian conduct becoming to out of hand?

Some of it is. This is the consequence of not having Torah.

Can you live any way you want and call yourself a Christian?

According to Yahweh's word, not so!.
Praise the Lord for your insight, and putting things into perspective. I have a problem with ones wanting us all to be zombies.

what is "club banging" music? the music our Lord listened to and heard would have sound nothing like the music we hear today

Some would condemn your gospel rap, (I don't care for rap,) but in ministering to youths in boot-camps, I learn to listen to the message that was coming forth from those young men and women in the genre that they expressed themselves.

Can we live anyway? our lives do not belong to us but to God, that is why I have problem with ones not reaching out to those that are lost.

God has not called us to be the elite, but ambassadors of righteousness, you can't do that with a mindset that others are just pimps, whores, and this and that, for we were all as filthy rags.

This condescension that some have has to be dealt with with the gospel as well. They are overruling God's authority and not obeying his commandment of love
Evan,

Big sis. You are soo right. I can't stand how Pastors, Bishops, and even Rabbis, makes us zombies and robots. We are called to live Holy, yes, but we can enjoy the world in holy manner.
My statement about the word whoremonger was in response to Altha's statement that people should not be referred to as whoremongers. No one ever said we should be zombies but HOLY AS JESUS IS HOLY. We must walk in the spirit and not fulfill the LUST OF OUR FLESH.
EW,

So true.
Praise God! We are to live a holy life and enjoy this world that God gave us dominion over.
Ephesians 5:5 KJV

For this ye know , that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

You see the scripture refers to people as whores and whoremongers. The bible mentions the word whore more that 15 times and it was not referring to the angels. Of course when you are witnessing to someone you don't call them a whore but in ministering the word of God we are commanded to Cry aloud and SPARE NOT and lift up our voices like trumpets and SHOW MY PEOPLE THEIR TRANSGRESSIONS.

If you disagree with the scriptures then you must inform the Lord that you don't agree with his word.
EW,

The word Whoremonger means the same as sexual fornication. It has nothing to do with some of your questions stated above.
My statement about the word whoremonger was in response to Altha's statement that people should not be referred to as whoremongers. The scriptures refer to people as whoremongers who behave in that manner therefore our objections should be directed towards God. No one every said we should be zombies but HOLY AS JESUS IS HOLY. We must walk in the spirit and not fulfill the LUST OF OUR FLESH.
people should not be demeaned by Christians, when ones are in sin they know it, they don't need the self-righteous to come along with bad news but with good news of how to be delivered from such lifestyles.

When I minister in prisons I don't addressed them as murderers, thieves, ..... they know their crimes, I carry to them the gospel, good news.
I never knew that preaching the word of God was demeaning people. When my childhood pastor preached about fornicators, liars and hypocrites I am sure it hurt to some but It was in no ways demeaning them by telling them what thus said the Lord. Jesus didn't just preach Love but also made statements such as I WILL KILL HER CHILDREN WITH DEATH. James started one verse off by addressing his audience as Ye adulterers and adulteress. Now I know that that sounds pretty harsh but that is where the people were obviously. These are not our words but spread all throughout the bible. The good news of Jesus salvation is to be preached to sinners IN LOVE however, many of the people practicing sinful lifestyles and wicked behaviors are not the new converts but people who claim to be Christians and already know God.

How should we address those people? The scripture says, SHALL WE CONTINUE IN SIN THAT GRACE MAY ABOUND? NO
EW,

Hmm.. Where did Yeshua say that He will kill her children with death?
