Open Forum / Re: False Righteousness in the Last Days

False righteousness comes in many forms in the church, both liberal and conservative. I know many would disagree because today it happens to be a politically inconvenient truth, but one is just as bad as the other. I don't thibnk a liberal Christian that thinks he's right in supporting envy, homosexuality or immorality is any more sinful than a conservative Christian that believes he's right in practicing racism, adultery or idolatry. They are both equally sinful and both equally indulging in their own brand of false righteousness. So they are both moving towards the same destination, though they are taking diferent roads. I don't see one bit of difference between these Christians in their apostasy. Pat Robinson on the right is just as self righteous as Marilynne Robinson on the left.

The point I am making is this. When sinful man is the judge, false righteousness in the church depends upon who you are asking about it. But with God it is seen on all sides because God has no political agenda. He judges righteously.

Psalms 96:11-13
Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof. Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth."

The topic of false righteousness is one that should hit home becauyse there is enough of it to go around. Narcissism is false righteousness. Pride is false righteousness. Free will is false righteousness. Envy is false righteousness. Vengeance is false righteousness. Racism is false righteousness. Political tribalism is false righteousness. Zionism is false righteousness. And on and one down the line. It is this false righteousness that leads the church into apostasy because it thinks it knows better than God what is the right thing to do. So the authority of the bible is abandoned for one's own opinions.

I believe that false righteousness is the reason for much of the apostasy in the church, the vain exaltation of the nation of Israel, the current direction of the country in the rise of Totalitarianism, and the apathy of Christians regarding real righteousness. The same reason most righteous Christian churches and forums have ceased to exist. Righteousness doesn't seem to matter anymore, it's all about tribalism and what side of the political fence you are on.

The Apostasy is real. The sense of false righteousness is real. The hypocrisy is real.

Matt. 5:20
"For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven".

The political and evangelistic righteousness that I see passing for Christ's righteousness does not.

Theology / Re: Mans inability to come to Christ
« Last post by savedbysovereigngrace99 on Yesterday at 06:22:33 AM »
Paul collaborates what Jesus said in Jn 6:65

65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

Paul writes in Phil 1:29 how to some it had been given to believe on Christ:

29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;

Jesus says these words Jn 6:44

 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

This declaration simply means that no man naturally has the ability to come to Christ, or believe on Him. That is coming to Christ is the same as to believe on Him Jn 6:64-65

64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.

65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

So Jesus own words declares this inability man has naturally to come to Him, Believe on Him.
