|At Ease Christianity's Worldview Of Ethics, Values, And Morals|
At Ease Christianity's Worldview of Ethics, Values, and Morals:
Often, the At Ease Christians will try to achieve ethics, values, and morals by self-effort rather than by yielding to the power of the Holy Ghost. Often, they don't realize that God wants to lead in every facet of our lives. They don't realize that every order of Scripture is still important to God--these are God's methods.
They may use many phrases to rationalize away Scripture: "That was for the apostolic age." That's a good one, you can get rid of any part of the Bible at all with that one. "Those Scriptures are no longer valid." "Tongues and prophecy are cessation gifts because 1 Corinthians 13 says that they will cease when that which is perfect is come and the Bible is perfect, so they have ceased."
And they teach many other extra-biblical things. They do this because they do not want to do God's will. They do not want a close, personal relationship with God, because they know that that relationship is a master-slave relationship. They would rather be under the law than under grace because grace requires that they die to self, listen to God, and obey God. Woe to those who are at ease in Zion. Woe to those who desire the day of the Lord, for it is a day of darkness and not light.
If you become a slave to Love, this is what you will be like: patient, kind, forgiving, stable in righteousness, enduring, knowing the difference between good and evil, truth and error, following God's patterns for life, and always choosing the good and the true, filled with the Spirit no matter what, and able to see God's vision of hope.
Then, you will not have pride, or be self-righteous. You will not boast, compare yourself to others, lie, covet, envy, steal, cheat, commit any sexual sin/perversion, have a disrespectful attitude toward God or any person, disobey God, or be rude, critical, demanding, irritable, unjust, resentful, or bitter.
You would never follow that which is demonic. You will not be drawn toward demonic, sensual/sexual, disorderly, disrespectful, or angry music or entertainment. If you become a slave of Jesus, which is a slave of Love, then you will hear His voice and yield to it, and the love of God will flow out through your heart by the Holy Ghost. This is a progressive experience where His voice becomes more clear over time and your ability to allow Love to flow through you and do God's work increases over time. You will see and discern the Kingdom of Heaven. You will see and discern the Body of Christ and have a deep respect and holy awe for the Christ in every member--no matter how mature or immature they are in Christ. In fact, you are not likely to try to guess how mature or immature they may be. When people knowingly reject the idea of going deeper in Christ and walking in His patterns and precepts, they show that they do not want love. When people are driven toward all these things that are listed here, they show that they do not want Jesus.
There may be a Church that is meeting near you that is following the orders of Scripture. If not, perhaps you would be better off starting a small prayer group in your home rather than going to a disorderly Church under a hireling pastor. You can do this under the direction of the apostolic ministry. Perhaps you may be able to start a Church that follows the pattern in the Scripture.
