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

In response to your question, Where did Yeshua say that He will kill her children with death?

Revelation 2:23 KJV

And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.
James address that, she does not understand that correctly, she may accept correction from you better than me.
Amen Rev. Lucket, the standard has to be taught! the word preached! and we must take time and nuture them in the doctrine as you state.

Gal 6:1 states
Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

We cannot go beating someone over the head with the word, and as the bible states

Titus 3:2 To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.
Evan,

Yes. The word said to make the Gospel attractive
Evan,

Yeshua said it in Rev 2:23, so his words are eternal.
I will kill her children with death; that is, the second death, which does the work effectually, and leaves no hope of future life, no resurrection for those that are killed by the second death, but only to shame and everlasting contempt.

It is not a literally killing of children, especially with words

but of wicked seducers who were compared to Jezebel, and called by her name.

Jezebel was a persecutor of the prophets of the Lord, and a great patroness of idolaters and false prophets.

The sin of these seducers was that they attempted to draw the servants of God into fornication, and to offer sacrifices to idols


This is not a warrant to demean those lost in sin, but an indictment of those leaders that led them there deliberately
.
Evan,

Do you believe that the second death is literal, or figurative?
My reference to the scripture, And I will kill her children with death was merely to show that every word that came out of the Lords mouth wasn't about Love. I am full aware of the meaning of the scripture, just trying to voice the fact that The Lord s wasn't always talking about Love.

There are many instances in the bible where Jesus and his apostles said or preached words that may have sounded offensive or demeaning. It sounds harsh to say to address a crowd by saying this WICKED AND PERVERSE GENERATION but the scripture is what it is. It sounds harsh sometimes.
literal that is where death and hell will be cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whose name is not found written in the book of life will be cast into the lake of fire,

Ezk. 33:11
As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from you evil ways; for why will ye die

2Peter 2:29

The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgement to be punished.


Now I think I told you once before, that the most effective ministry that was given to me was that "I was on my way to hell". Now that sister told me that without ONCE mentioning the sin she knew I was in, she told me I was acting foolishly, but she was always the first one to run and sit me up front in church, happy to see me! in my mini skirt that was in style back then. I pulled that skirt down and covered up because of love, not self-righteousness or because of someone frowned up.

Where are the saints today that know how to love?
The Lord Chastises those whom he Love. Love is not always soft and fluffy but can sometimes be hard. Again, as I said before I am not talking about a new convert just coming to Christ. I am referring to people who already knows better but chose to dress a certain way to cast a stumblingblock before their brothers.

Let's face it, everybody coming to church ain't saved and some have ill intentions. Some people are actually sent by Satan to spy out our liberties.

Also, I am referencing general preaching to a congregation and not someone outing you in front of a crowd or individually. A minister is not suppose to soften the blow of God's word to pacify the people as a Jellyback would but we are suppose to boldly proclaim the truth.

I am sorry, but the proper way to handle a young lady in a mini skirt coming to church is to, IN LOVE, cover her legs with a towel as you take her to the front but not to allow her to distract the brothers in the pulpit with legs uncovered and/or inner thighs showing. We don't have a right to cause an occasion for our brother to fall.

When I am referring to preaching about sin I am not referring to pulling one individual aside and beating him or her down with the Bible, I am speaking in general when a minister is preaching.

Paul gives many examples: When he spoke to each church he addressed the sins of that particular church. he didn't call out individuals but he stated that each church had to deal with certain sins. In each case he informed them of what needed to be dealt with. How can they know if you don't call out the sin. These were the people of God not new converts.
