Modern Christianity proves the Bible has ended

When we read the Bible, and look around at our Churches, we see that our faith journey is nothing compared to the people of the Bible.

The Bible story talks about legendary figures of faith: people leaving their lands, selling all their possessions to the poor, crossing the Red Sea, speaking in new languages that they never learned, healing the sick by laying on of hands, raising the dead, dying horrific deaths but loving their enemies, etc.

But none of this happens today.

When it comes to those miraculous legendary acts of faith, we say that the Bible is completed and the gifts and miracles have ceased and that those things are not for today!

1 Corinthians 13 “Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.”

The sign of having the Holy Spirit was to speak in new languages (Acts 2, Acts 10, Acts 19, etc.) But today nobody has this sign and the Church says that we still have the Holy Spirit without signs because the Bible is complete!

Well if that is the case then the Bible was not written to us if we are not experiencing the Biblical faith! We having nothing to do with the Bible!

But wait a minute, now the Church will say that God delayed the prophetic timetable of Israel to create some new “dispensation” for us today so that we can be part of the story. They say that God added a delay of 2000 years in the 490 year prophecy of Israel below:

The Bible says that the entire prophetic timetable of Israel was 490 years:

Daniel 9 “24 “Seventy ‘sevens’ are decreed for your people and your holy city to finish transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the Most Holy Place.”

So, now we defy logic and common sense in saying that God made a 490 year prophecy but added 2000 years into that to make the Bible apply to us.

You see the games we are playing because of our cognitive dissonance. When we want to be part of the story, we extend it. When we have no evidence of being part of the story, we say that it was not relevant.

We say that we have the Holy Spirit but cannot speak in tongues or do miracles, or we fake it.

We say that we have the Holy Spirit but have 45000 denominations, all divided over the Bible!

Now, let us look at the commandments of Jesus and the Apostles.

All of us Christians will say that we can never be “perfect” and “without sin” in this life. They say that we should try to imitate Jesus but we are not perfect. That contradicts the very words of Jesus and the Apostles.

Matthew 5:48 “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”

Romans 8:13 “12 Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.”

James 2 “My brothers and sisters, believers ….If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing right. But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers. 10 For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it. 11 For he who said, “You shall not commit adultery,” also said, “You shall not murder.” If you do not commit adultery but do commit murder, you have become a lawbreaker.”

The Bible says that believers have to be perfect and keep the moral law without sin.

We say that we will never stop sinning, therefore we confess our sins to experience ongoing forgiveness based on 1 John 1:9. But do you know that John said that the believer must eventually stop sinning and be like Jesus!

1 John 2 “No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him.” ….. All who have this hope (of salvation) in him purify themselves, just as he is pure…..We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands. Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him: Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.”

When Jesus said that All His followers must carry the cross and love others like Jesus, then we water it down.

Luke 14 “25 Large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them he said: 26 “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple. 27 And whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple…. 33 In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples.”

John 13 “34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.””

Some traditional Churches will say that we should just try our best but we will never be perfect like Jesus and that we will never stop sinning. So then they focus on the sacraments, baptism, confession, Lord’s supper, church attendance, activities, prayer, as means of salvation or pleasing God but ignore all those impossible demands.

The Grace churches will say that impossible demands of Jesus were only part of the law and not for us today. They segment the teachings of Jesus as “pre-cross” / Law / Old Covenant and post-cross / New Covenant. Some will say that Paul preached an easier gospel. Some of them will say that the tribulation will happen after the rapture.

Grace churches are allergic to the concepts of repentance, obedience to please God, enduring persecution and overcoming sin to be saved.

But then they ignore Paul’s own words were He confirms the teachings of Jesus saying that believers must suffer great tribulation and they should stop sinning and follow Jesus before the 2nd coming.

Acts 14 “22 strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith. “We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,”

Romans 8 “17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. 18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.”

Ephesians 5 “Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. But among you there must not be even a hint of (ANY SIN) sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person—such a person is an idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient. Therefore do not be partners with them.”

We see all those impossible demands in the Bible about selling everything to the poor, being perfect without sin, loving others like Jesus, and WATER IT DOWN trying to make a diluted version of Biblical Christianity.

We see that Jesus and Paul said that God would judge everyone for works, but we say that salvation is only by faith, clearly ignoring the words of the Bible that faith required perfect works to be saved.

Revelation 22 “12 “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done.”

Matthew 16 “24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 25 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. 26 What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? 27 For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done.”

Romans 2 “God “will repay each person according to what they have done.” To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger. There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile; 10 but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. 11 For God does not show favoritism. 12 All who sin apart from the law will also perish apart from the law, and all who sin under the law will be judged by the law. 13 For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous. 14 (Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law. 15 They show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts sometimes accusing them and at other times even defending them.) 16 This will take place on the day when God judges people’s secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares.”

Revelation 20 “11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. 15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.”

We say that unbelievers will be judged for works but Christians will be judged by faith alone, clearly ignoring that God has no favoritism and judges all people for their works. Some Christians say that “works” are for rewards.

But they clearly ignore the words of Paul who said this:

Romans 8 “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.”

There is no condemnation only if the believer obeyed ALL The requirements of the law! Therefore salvation was only if people followed Jesus perfectly and got rid of sin.

We ignore the very words of the Bible and have created our own version of watered-down Christianity.

The truth is that Biblical Christianity ended in the 1st century.

Jesus was supposed to return in AD70 to judge the entire world according to the works of the law.

Hebrews 10 “37 For,“In just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay.”

But the law expired and Jesus did not come back.

Hebrews 8:13 “13 By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and outdated will soon disappear.”

The Church has never been able to follow Jesus.

This shows us that Jesus never wanted to judge the world.

The impossible demands of the Bible ended.

The truth is that no Church preaches the Biblical gospel or has the Biblical faith today.

The truth is that the Bible is an allegorical story where Adam failed, Israel failed and the Church failed.

The truth is that God is perfect and man is always imperfect. The perfect God does not judge imperfect people.

As Christians, we have no right to judge non-Christians, when we are nothing like Jesus and we don’t have any signs of the Biblical faith.

If Jesus did judge the world then all Christians would go to hell along with unbelievers.

The truth is that God is not a judge.

The Bible shows us that Jesus is Lord and God and He does not want to judge anyone.

God is unconditional love and He has forgiven the entire world on the cross.

The Bible is over and Jesus loves you unconditionally, no matter who you are.
