Sin Isn't What You Think It Is, It's What God Says It Is

100% Or Nothing

All Bible Verses are taken from the New American Standard Bible 1995 (NASB1995).

100% within an orange circle God has commanded us to never change His Word. He is the author, and allows us to spread His Word to the entire world. However, He strictly forbids the alteration, addition, or removal of anything from His Word. Attempts to change, rewrite, outlaw, or destroy His Word, will come to ruin. God has kept His word pure, and modifications are but a counterfeit. People are either fully committed to keeping His word in it's entirety, or they are not.

Whatever I command you, you shall be careful to do; you shall not add to nor take away from it.
-- Deuteronomy 12:32 (NASB1995)

I spent a good part of the past 5-plus years reading the Bible, listening to TV and online preachers, reading books written by Bible scholars, attending Bible studies, questioning my Catholic upbringing and the doctrine of Catholicism in general, exploring other Christian denominations and their doctrine, asking questions to priest, pastors and other people of faith, and after all that, I'm convinced that churches are not teaching the true word of God; the Gospel that Jesus taught.

I am not now nor have I ever questioned the existence of God. I never questioned who Jesus is and what He did for us by being born a man from a virgin, lived a sinless life, was beaten and died a horrendous death on the cross shedding His precious blood so that our sins can be washed clean, being buried in a tomb belonging to Joseph from Arimathea 57 When it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who himself had also become a disciple of Jesus. 58 This man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate ordered it to be given to him. 59 And Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, 60 and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock; and he rolled a large stone against the entrance of the tomb and went away. 61 And Mary Magdalene was there, and the other Mary, sitting opposite the grave. -- Matthew 27:57-61 and resurrecting on the third day, defeating death so that we do not have to die. I have no questions or doubts about any of that. I truly believe Jesus is the Son of God. He is my Lord and Savior. However, I am questioning and have doubts that our churches have it right; whether churches are actually teaching the word of God? Especially in these days when some churches are allowing gay and lesbian pastors. Allowing same sex marriages to occur in the church. Allowing drag queen preachers and displaying the rainbow flag of the LGBT… movement. turns out that some churches are changing the scriptural words to fit their agenda and not preaching what Jesus taught as laid out in Gods word in the Bible. All of this and more have left no doubt in my mind that the church is not teaching the true words of God and are currently being controlled by Satan. Satan has infiltrated our churches, our schools, our society and our very lives and I am convinced that the true word of God is not being taught. I thought about just staying quiet about my thoughts and feelings; however, it seems like I can no longer keep quiet. I feel the Holy Spirit prompting me to speak out, and I will not disobey the Holy Spirit. I think what pushed me over the edge was several articles I recently found online about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how some are talking about having it rewrite the Bible to make it correct. Whether these articles are true or not, those articles prompted me to finally speak out. That said... where do I start?

There is a rampant delusion flooding our world today that implies you don't have to follow the entire Bible, just some of it. This attitude can be seen literally everywhere. I am about to relay what God says in His Word, not what a fallen world thinks. As you can tell from my opening statement, I am in no way a Bible scholar. I am not a pastor, priest or deacon. I have never attended seminary. Actually, I am an engineer/computer scientist by education and trade. However; I am first and foremost a true believer in Jesus Christ and believe with all my heart, mind, body and soul that He is who He says He is, the Son of God. Who came to this Earth as a human man. Born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, was beaten and died the most horrendous death imaginable by being nailed to a cross. He shed His precious blood so that our sins and the sins of the world can be forgiven and washed clean. He died, was buried and resurrected on the third day, defeating death so that all who believe can have eternal life with Him. That said, it is my opinion that you are either a Christian, a believer in Jesus as the Son of God, your Lord and Savior or you are not. You either believe in ALL of the words of Jesus, fully and entirely, or you do not. We don't follow part of the Bible, or most of it, we follow all of it. Every single word. Is this easy? Absolutely not! We all fail and we all fall short. It is through the grace of God and our belief in Jesus His Son, that we are saved. 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; 25 whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness, because in the forbearance of God He passed over the sins previously committed; 26 for the demonstration, I say, of His righteousness at the present time, so that He would be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus. -- Romans 3:23-26

Man shrugging Sadly, in today's world, we see many proclaimed Christians saying they believe in the Bible but are not following its teachings. Some claim there are errors in the Bible, but when asked to point out these errors they are unable to name them. Some say that many of the books, especially Genesis, are fairy tales even though there is achiological evidence and proof of their truth. Some of these people refuse to believe that God created the earth in five days and on the sixth day created man in His image. They would rather believe that we 'evolved' from lower species, like the ape. By the way...if man evolved from apes, why are there still apes? Shouldn't they all have been evolved Some people are making revisions to the Bible. We see this in the media, online, on TV and even in some churches. Those who believe in less than 100% of the Word of God cherry-pick the verses they agree with and ignore the ones they don't.

Woman vomitting in the toilet There is a group of people throughout the world known as revisionists who take God's Holy Word and modify it to their liking, and ultimately, to what suits their lifestyle. Many of these changes effectively ignore what God intended in a given passage and then massaging it until it fits their sinful ways. They do it irrespective of the eternal consequences, and in doing so, mock the very One who died for their sins. A good, yet nauseating example that sickens me to even mention, is the Queen James Bible. This obnoxious, sickening piece of blasphemy is a rewrite of the 1769 edition of the King James Bible. In it, all negative references to homosexuality have been removed. Although it sickens me that some people are changing the Word of God, ignoring what is going on in this world does nothing to solve the problem, or at the very least, make people aware of what's happening to God's Holy Word.

There are no less than 100 verses in the Bible regarding not changing the Word of God and that the word of God is perfect and true. Following are a few of these verses (hover your mouse pointer over the verse to read the verse(s) in a pop-up or click on it to read on Biblegateway ).

  1. Revelation 22:18-19 18 I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book; 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book.
  2. Deuteronomy 4:2 2 You shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.
  3. Deuteronomy 12:32 Whatever I command you, you shall be careful to do; you shall not add to nor take away from it.
  4. Proverbs 30:5-6 5 Every word of God is tested; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him. 6 Do not add to His words Or He will reprove you, and you will be proved a liar.
  5. 2 Peter 1:20-21 20 But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one's own interpretation, 21 for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.
  6. 1 Thessalonians 2:13 For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe.
  7. Revelation 1:1-20 The Revelation of Jesus Christ
    1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show to His bond-servants, the things which must soon take place; and He sent and communicated it by His angel to His bond-servant John, 2 who testified to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw. 3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near.
    Message to the Seven Churches
    4 John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace, from Him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne, 5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood— 6 and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father—to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. 7 Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen. 8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
    The Patmos Vision
    9 I, John, your brother and fellow partaker in the tribulation and kingdom and perseverance which are in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. 10 I was [h]in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet, 11 saying, “Write in a book what you see, and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea.” 12 Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands; 13 and in the middle of the lampstands I saw one like a son of man, clothed in a robe reaching to the feet, and girded across His chest with a golden sash. 14 His head and His hair were white like white wool, like snow; and His eyes were like a flame of fire. 15 His feet were like burnished bronze, when it has been made to glow in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters. 16 In His right hand He held seven stars, and out of His mouth came a sharp two-edged sword; and His face was like the sun shining in its strength. 17 When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man. And He placed His right hand on me, saying, “Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, 18 and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades. 19 Therefore write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place after these things. 20 As for the mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.
  8. John 8:31-32 31 So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”
  9. Psalm 119:89 Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven.
  10. Psalm 18:30 As for God, His way is blameless; The word of the Lord is tried; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.
  11. Psalm 56:4 In God, whose word I praise, In God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid. What can mere man do to me?
  12. 2 Peter 2:21 For it would be better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn away from the holy commandment handed on to them.
  13. John 10:35 If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken),
  14. 2 Peter 2:1 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.
  15. Psalm 19:7 The law of the Lord is [a]perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
  16. Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.
  17. Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
  18. Acts 20:30 and from among your own selves men will arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them.
  19. Psalm 119:2 How blessed are those who observe His testimonies, Who seek Him with all their heart.
  20. Ephesians 6:17 How blessed are those who observe His testimonies, Who seek Him with all their heart.

God issues warnings to those who will add or subtract from His word. One of the problems, as I see it, is that the people making changes to His word, fear His Word, possibly because His Word holds a mirror up to their face, or they simply don't care about His Word. In stead, they care about the way they have chosen to live on this earth. They will change anything to fit their lifestyle and fit His Words to the God they have created in their mind. A word that will make them feel better about themselves. They create a god who is Okay with certain sins but not others, a god who is happy with people following most of His commands, just not all of them. They refuse to admit that sin is sin Click this link to proceed to a website titled:
"Does the Bible teach mortal and venial sin?
Being raised Catholic I was taught that there are mortal sins and venial sins. However, this teaching is not Biblical. The Bible states, and I paraphrase, that sin-is-sin and all is punishable; however, Jesus nailed all our sins to the cross with Him. Our true belief in Jesus provides us with salvation from our sins through Christ Jesus.
, no matter the severity, and that God hates it all. Verses that substantiate this, are mentioned many times throughout scripture.

I want to talk about two particular items in this message. The first item consists of a group of people who claim to be Christians (believers in Jesus), yet refuse to submit to all of God's Word, and a second group who (in my opinion) think they are gods and plan to live forever. This second group I'm referring to are what some people, including myself, call the “elite”. Both groups not only hold on to their sin(s), but they pursue it/them. I want to preface what I'm about to say with; I know we are all sinners, and that God loves everyone and wants us all to come to repentance. (Romans 3:9-26). 9 What then? Are we better than they? Not at all; for we have already charged that both Jews and Greeks are all under sin; 10 as it is written,

“There is none righteous, not even one;
11 There is none who understands, There is none who seeks for God;
12 All have turned aside, together they have become useless; There is none who does good, There is not even one.”
13 “Their throat is an open grave, With their tongues they keep deceiving,” “The poison of asps is under their lips”;
14"Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness”;
15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood,
16 Destruction and misery are in their paths,
17 And the path of peace they have not known.”
18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”

19 Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law, so that every mouth may be closed and all the world may become accountable to God; 20 because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin.
justification by Faith
21 But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, 22 even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction; 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; 25 whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness, because in the forbearance of God He passed over the sins previously committed; 26 for the demonstration, I say, of His righteousness at the present time, so that He would be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
The peoples and groups I mention can be forgiven and saved if they turn back to the true word of God and accept Jesus as Lord and savior. 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. -- John 14:6 There are at least 25-verses in the bible that talk about the fact that we have all sinned and fall short. That said, the first items I'll use as an example, because it is the most widely seen in today's world, and I'm also using it because the world is trying it's hardest to normalize it and pass it off as “love” is, and if you haven't figured it out, I'm referring to the topics of homosexuality, pedophilia, gender modification and abortion (the murder of babies in and out of the womb).

We are witnessing the acceptance of homosexuality in some of our churches by allowing gay and lesbian pastors, pastor “the flock” and distribute the body and blood of Christ (communion). If these gay and lesbian pastors were truly preaching the word of God, they would not, and could not continue living the gay and lesbian lifestyle because it is in direct violation of Gods law (Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13). Leviticus 18:22
You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.

Leviticus 20:13
If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them.
I recently saw a video of a church service that had drag queens parading down the center aisle and standing by the altar preaching to the congregation while the alter and the lectern were draped over with the rainbow flag of the LGBT… movement. By the way...this movement, using the rainbow for their cause is a slap in the face of God. Think about the sign God gave Noah after the flood to show Noah that He would never destroy the earth with water again. God put a rainbow in the sky as His covenant sign. Perversion is also occurring in our public libraries and elementary schools where the administration is allowing drag queens and drag queen story hours to take place sending the message to our youth that men dressing up like women or women dressing up like men is normal (Deuteronomy 22:5). 5 A woman shall not wear man's clothing, nor shall a man put on a woman's clothing; for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord your God. No Drag Queen Story Time For me...this is totally unacceptable. Do whatever you want around other adults or in the privacy of your home, but LEAVE OUR KIDS ALONE!!! The celebration of pride month is occurring like never before, parades and rallies celebrating homosexuality, celebrating the transgender movement, and on and on and on. We are repeatedly being told, It's perfectly normal everyone...just accept it! That's the message we get daily on all forms of media, isn't it? Just go along to get along. God is love and these two men or two women love each other, so embrace it. We are seeing it in the media, on beer cans, and in Target on children's clothing, to mention the most recent. Don't get me wrong. Same sex relationships and all this other perversion has been around since the dawn of time ; however, it is just in the past few decades that this lifestyle is not just being accepted, but celebrated.

But, a problem even bigger than homosexuality is that it seems there is movement in some government circles and political arenas to normalize pedophilia...PEDOPHILIA!!! The sexual abuse of our children!!! (Luke 17:2, Matthew 18:6) Luke 17:2
2 It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea, than that he would cause one of these little ones to stumble.

Matthew 18:6
6 but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.
; I can tell you all for certain...NOT ON MY WATCH!!!. These sick perverted individuals need some serious mental help. Anyone who sexually abuses a child, when caught, should be thrown in jail for the rest of their lives with absolutely no chance of parole...ever! I knew pedophilia existed; however, before seeing the film “Sound of Freedom” I didn't know how much of it is going on. It's beyond sick, it's demonic. It's satanic. I'm actually at a loss for words to describe how I feel about these people, at least words that I'm willing to put in print where children might read them. If you have not seen the film “Sound of Freedom”, please make an effort to see it. I placed some information below about the film and as of this writing you might still be able to get free tickets; link below.

Sound of Freedom proposed DVD jacket SOUND OF FREEDOM the film
While writing this piece I saw the film “Sound of Freedom”. It is an amazing film. If you have not seen it, please make time to see it. If you cannot afford the price of a ticket, I believe, as of this writing there are still free tickets available from the kind people who have paid it forward. I saw this film over a week ago and I'm still feeling the after effects. I am currently researching ways that I can get involved and when I find it, I'll share my experience with everyone. Please...if you care about our children and are not aware of the escalating child slavery, child pornography industry and the ever growing pedophilia ring(s) that is/are occurring in a much larger scale because of our open southern border, please take the time to view this film.

The mutilation of our children is also occurring and becoming legal in some states. I use the word mutilation for the gender-affirming, sex altering surgeries that are being done to children and many times without parental consent! In some states the child has the right to keep their medical records a secret from their parents! Image that! A small child in the early stages of development who thinks they might be the opposite sex can have gender altering surgery done without the parents consent, or the parents even knowing about it! In my opinion this is also a satanic attack. Satan is attacking our children and wants to keep them away from God (Matthew 19:14). But Jesus said, “Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these. This mutilation of our children is so disturbing that I can't even go on about it in this message. Satan is in control of this country and I truly believe we will, and possibly are already, coming under the wrath of God. If God does not punish this country and the world for these atrocities, He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gammorah.

Constitution of the United States It seems to me that this, and other non-biblical ideologies are an intentional crusade to destroy the United States and other democratic countries from within; but particularly, the United States. It is my opinion that these global elitist need to destroy America because our constitution is getting in the way of their goal of creating a one world government, the beast system. I can only describe what is going on in America and other parts of the world as a war on God's design. America was founded by Christian men and women and our constitution is based on Biblical principles. Our constitution will only work if our government is controlled by Godly men and women. We must rebuke the evil that is currently in control of our government, but we must also be precise in it! This also is a command from God in Romans 12:9. Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good.

I want to reiterate what I just spoke about by paraphrasing a quote that I either read or heard, I can't remember which, about 40, maybe 50 years ago, and used as the title of this message, that went something along the lines of, “Sin isn't what you think it is, it's what God says it is.” God says homosexuality is a sin. Leviticus 18:22 You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.

Leviticus 20:13
If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them.
No matter how much the world tries to normalize it, it's wrong, and something that God sees as an abomination! abomination [noun]
1. something regarded weith discust or hatred: something abominable
2. extreme disgust and hatred: LOATHING
I don't know about you, but the word abomination is very powerful to me and describes something that is beyond horrible, bad or misconduct. As believers in Jesus Christ, there shouldn't be any debate, because God states in His Word that homosexuality is wrong...period. He also says that harming the children is a sin and basically punishable by death, since tighing a millstone around your neck and being tossed into the sea is probably fatal. but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.
-- Matthew 18:6

There's another popular saying that goes, “If God said it, that settles it.” Obviously there are other sins that people cling to; such as lust, covidness, the love of self, disobedience to parents, using the name of God in vain, stealing, etc. etc. etc., but as believers in Jesus Christ, we are to submit to the entirety of His teachings, and turning from all sin is one of His commands. (1 John 3:6-7; Acts 3:19). 1 John 3:6-7
6 No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him. 7 Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous

Acts 3:19
Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord

Smiling baby There is another great abomination against our children and that abomination is the murder of over 60-million unborn babies. Society calls this healthcare, the mothers right to control her body. Maybe she should have had control over her body when she decided to produce the baby in the first place. I understand that some women may become pregnant due to the terrible crime of rape and/or incest, and even though these are horrible psychologically destroying events for the woman, it's not the babies fault, so why should the baby suffer the death penalty for the act of some monster. There are thousands of heterosexual married couples who want a baby and cannot have their own who would adopt these children if the mother truly does not want it. In stead of being murdered this baby can become part of a stable loving home. I would, and I know many others who would support these battered abused women to bring the baby to term and provide the mother and the baby with the love, support and psychological assistance she will most definitely need, not only during the pregnancy, but after. Giving assistance to these women and providing the care they will need during and after is what I call part of healthcare. Also, I want to see the monsters who commit such acts (I refuse to call them men), thrown into jail for the rest of their lives with no chance of ever getting out. I cannot and will not call the act of eliminating a fetus abortion and I will definitely not call it healthcare. I will call it what it is ...murder!; murder in the first degree. God's opinion on this has not changed since the early days of the Baal's , Moloch and Ishtar when ancient peoples were sacrificing babies to these gods. It is an abomination; there's that powerful word again. Not only are babies being murdered in the womb, but there are some states in America that allow the murder outside of the womb after the baby is born! All of this is pure evil and is purely satanic. Jesus says it this way in Luke 17:2. It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea, than that he would cause one of these little ones to stumble.

Artifical Intelligence man looking like android with code
              behind him The second item I want to mention in this message that has the possibility to affect Christianity, and all people on the earth is the advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI). AI can already write entire documents using the same style as any particular person. It can reproduce voice patterns of anyone and have them say things they never said or would never say. It is already embedded in many social media sites and I'm comfortable saying, most likely a lot of other area's of our lives. Recently, there have been several articles and video's produced stating that the World Economic Forum (WEF) has called for AI to write a bible and create a new religion that the WEF described as “actually correct”. I'm only speculating at this time, but it sure does sound like these people, who think they are god and will live forever, are attempting to create a one world religion based on their beliefs. I am somewhat sorry to say that it even appears the Pope, who pastors over 1-billion people, is siding with these elites. In my opinion we are truly living in the end of the end of the end days as described in the book of Danial , the book of Revelation and Jesus' sermon on the mount. I'm watching and researching what is happening with AI and may write another piece about it in the future when I learn more about the technology.

Though we are flawed, God desires total commitment of our faith in Him, and obedience to His teachings. This means our actions should reflect who we are and what we believe, walking as Christ would have us walk. That means not pursuing sin, but destroying it. Total commitment is not a 95%, 99%, or even 99.999% proposition, it's 100%. A lifestyle reflective of the sacrifice He gifted us.

In closing, the main commitment in our lives, should be to God Himself. Jesus said, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment.” (Matthew 22:37-38). 37 And He said to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.' 38 This is the great and foremost commandment. There is also commitment in sacrifice. Paul said, “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20). I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

We should be repentant of our sin and ask forgiveness, then He will be faithful and just to forgive us. (ref. 1 John 1:9) If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. But, the world says, … “No, don't do that, … embrace sin, accept it and simply do as others do, … a little sin is just fine.”

Do not follow the world, follow Jesus.

Access Denied The Gospel of Jesus Christ will continue to appear and be referenced on this website and on my YouTube channels regardless of the efforts being made to silence our voices. I found it interesting that when I started adding Bible verses at the end of my model building videos @skipsmessyworkbench , I started losing subscribers. I don't care, I simply found it interesting. “They”, meaning social media platforms can censor my social media, shadowban comments, send email warnings, delete my videos, give me strikes, whatever … it doesn't matter, I don' t care. I can promise you what will happen, is that I will continue to call out and expose evil whenever they push it. This should come as a surprise to no one. We belong to a King, not the perverse ideas or persuasion of a defective and demented world. We are not of this world!

Every facet of our lives must include 100% commitment to loving God and refusing sin. Surely not the pursuance of sin as the world now tells us. This means that we must hold nothing back from God because He holds nothing back from us (John 3:16). For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. I pray that this message has shed a little light on what the world is now pushing and how they try to incorporate sin into our lives and into our churches. Beware of the revisionists, and those who claim Christ, yet live an opposite lifestyle. It's not about a partial commitment to Christ,'s total commitment. It's 100 or nothing.

Jesus says this in John 8:31 So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine , … “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.”

So as disciples of Christ, we listen, we obey, and we believe...100%.

Volume control set to max I want to wish everyone reading this a safe & blessed life. And when the world tells you to keep your Christian views to yourself, turn up the volume. and when they tell you to stop speaking the name of Jesus...stop for no one, shout it from the mountain top! Jesus is Lord! Jesus is King! Jesus is coming again very soon!

Man shouting out from the mountain top

God bless each and every one of you.

Jesus reaching out

“God isn't looking for someone who has it all together to share His message. He is looking for someone who is willing. Here is something that will encourage you and increase your effectiveness in telling people your story. 2 Corinthians 12:9 states this:

”And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.” (NASB1995).

You've most likely heard this as well...
”God doesn't call the equipped, he equips the called.”

It's not about our ability, it's about our availability. And finally 1 Peter 4:10 states:

”As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” (NASB1995).
