SEPARATION: What does purity cost?

ProgressiveChristianityPicI have three questions for Christians today as to why they no longer speak out against pagan assimilation and false teaching, and I will follow the three questions with four-hundred and thirty-six answers. I promise to make my answers very simple to read.

  1. Why are most Christian pastors afraid to expose sin, mark and avoid false teachers, and rebuke those who live like pagans?  Why do they imitate the world and its culture, whether it be the adoption and use of the unbeliever’s music, dress, holidays, speech, activities, traditions, or mindset?
  2. Why do many hesitate to speak out against Catholicism, false grace, false worship, false prophets, or false gospels like that taught by Joel Osteen, Rick Warren, the Gospel Coalition, John Piper, Tim Keller, or Sovereign Grace Ministries?
  3. Why do they prefer the comfort of sitting in a cathedral office or in front of a television, instead of evangelizing the lost?

VAdO4b“If the world hate you, you know that it hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love his own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.”   – John 15:18-21

“Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.” – James 1:27

“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.” – Romans 12:2

“When you enter the land which the LORD your God gives you, you shall not learn to imitate the detestable things of those nations.” – Deuteronomy 18:9

20-Holiness-to-the-LORDAaron, the high priest in the Old Testament, was required to wear a gold plate above his head which said “HOLINESS TO THE LORD“. Why? Holiness meant “set apart”.  The priests were expected to be clean, blameless, and set apart from all the other tribes around them.  In a real way, they were an example of the future “royal priesthood of believers”. GOD speaks of holiness or being “set apart” from the pagan practices and the worldly culture and traditions of non-believers repeatedly throughout the entire Bible.

A pagan-looking rock band that claims to be "christian".  What "christ" do they serve?

A pagan-looking rock band that claims to be “christian”. What “christ” do they serve?

GOD hated anything that smacked of being “worldly”.  His people were not allowed to take anything from Baal practices and re-use for Him. Today, a false Christ is crafted by false brethren to conform to their own wish list. This is called idolatry. GOD even wanted His people to separate from other disobedient believers in I Corinthians 5:11. 

Today, little emphasis is placed upon this concept in ministries and congregations. Why? Below are your answers regarding why many today refuse to be holy or “set apart” or separate.  

nail in handPurity requires total obedience, even if that means our opportunities for money, pleasure, or popularity are removed from our life. It means we separate from the unholy practices of the world and from those individuals that GOD says we must avoid.   It requires our total obedience even if it means being mocked, humiliated, or denied our basic needs.  In summary, purity costs your everything.  Jesus’ nail-scarred hand speaks of His ultimate sacrifice for the sake of love, purity, and separation from evil. Are we above His example? His nail-scarred hand is a reminder of the cost of obedience to the Father.

Below, in fact, are four-hundred and thirty-six answers to the above three questions … and just think, we will be judged by the same standard as these people on Judgment Day.
