Follow Christ, Not Christians

“Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.” (Matthew 24:12-13)

Nothing destroys religious fervor faster than religious corruption.  Atheism is not the greatest enemy to Christianity – false Christianity is the greatest enemy to the path of the gospel.  Lawless false prophets have led so many astray, and the hypocrisy of manmade religions turns the hearts of the next generation cold.

It is easy to see why the next generation struggles with worldliness when the religion they see is full of fakeness, corruption, or scandal.  People will let you down, and the shortcomings of others can lead to cold hearts.  So, what’s the solution?

Remember you follow Christ, not Christians.  Don’t let your faith rest in people – endure to the end so that you may stand before Jesus.  Place your trust in Him, and your heart will burn inside you.  Shift your gaze from the body to the head.

Matthew 4:4 #Biblebites
