True Christianity is not a substitute for a lack of self-worth. One of the results of true worship is indeed a change in how one values oneself. It is based on humility and gratitude. The change in one’s self-worth engendered by True Christianity is because there is a remarkable change in personality, one that is not always easily obtainable and requires a consistent and constant effort.
Those who mock True Christianity is because they don’t know what Christianity is supposed to be
They base their beliefs and attitudes on what they see as a result of Christendom. How can anyone believe in something as violent as Christendom has been in the past and even the present? There is clergy who are telling people to go and kill other people. In the past it was the Crusades, the Inquisition, the Salem Witch hunts and the bloodguilt of Christendom goes on and on. Christendom also has at its feet the bloodguilt associated with the suppression of the Truth of God’s Word. (Psalm 55:23, Psalm 59:2) Countless numbers have died maintaining the truth of God’s Word.
World War Christendom
Even during the last World War Christendom incurred heavy bloodguilt for their participation in the War and their refusal to follow the Christ they claimed to be their leader.
Jesus was very clear about who his followers would be; “They are no part of the world, just as I am no part of the world. Sanctify them by means of the truth; your word is the truth.” (John 17:16) Christendom has been so much a part of the world that the Bible includes them with all false religions which it labels as “Babylon the Great“. Revelation 17:3-6 reads:
“And I caught sight of a woman sitting upon a scarlet-colored wild beast that was full of blasphemous names and that had seven heads and ten horns. 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and was adorned with gold and precious stone and pearls and had in her hand a golden cup that was full of disgusting things and the unclean things of her fornication. 5 And upon her forehead was written a name, a mystery: “Babylon the Great, the mother of the harlots and of the disgusting things of the earth.” 6 And I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the holy ones and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus.”
Christendom has a heavy price to pay because it has lied about and misled millions about the truth of God’s Word the Bible, about the Christ and the One who sent him forth. (John 17:3) Millions of people are in deep darkness and suffering in unimaginable ways because Christendom abandoned its work and became apostate not long after the 1st Century Christians died out.
Today this darkness is so deep and deeply entrenched that most people refuse to hear the Truth of God’s Word the Bible. They outright refuse to come to know what the Bible really teaches and come to an accurate knowledge of the Truth. (2 Peter 3:3-4, 16), (1 Timothy 2:4), John 8:32).
True Christianity is not a substitute for self-worth. It is True Worship and with that comes an understanding of the deep things of God and as a result a willingness to humble oneself under the mighty hand of God because he cares for us. (1 Corinthians 2:10, 1 Peter 5:6,) How sad it is that so many will never come to this knowledge because Christendom has fulfilled Jesus warning recorded at Matthew 23:13:
“Woe to YOU, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because YOU shut up the kingdom of the heavens before men; for YOU yourselves do not go in, neither do YOU permit those on their way in to go in.”
