Which government system is Christian? High Tower of Discernment

Who is a Christian?

Questions of this eternal importance can only be answered by the Holy Scriptures. Many think all that they have to do is go to Church or just say the word "Christian" (or a "Jew") as if that makes them one.

 Please be wiser than a fool- do not reject Christ Jesus, Yeshua because of the poor examples you may see who profess to be "Christians" ...some are plainly not Christians while others are a work in progress under grace; they may be battling evil spirits in their minds causing them to be weak in the flesh, and, as a result, fall into temptation in unacceptable behavior. True Christians will humble themselves and ask for forgiveness under such circumstances. Jesus makes clear, even so, to learn from Him and to keep your eyes fixed on Him! Jesus makes people holy through repentance of sin.

Consider carefully what is written:

"No good tree bears bad fruit, not does a bad tree bear good fruit.  Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers. The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks." -Luke 6:43-45

Jesus: "Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth."  -John 4:23, 24

"Therefore I want you to understand that no one speaking by the Spirit of God ever says 'Jesus be cursed!' and no one can say 'Jesus is Lord' except by the Holy Spirit." -1 Corinthians 12:3 
Test the Spirits

"Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world." -1 John 4:1-3

 "Lord, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill? He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart
and has no slander on his tongue, who does his neighbor no wrong and casts no slur on his fellowman, who despises a vile man but honors those who fear the Lord, who keeps his oath even when it hurts, who lends his money without usury and does not accept a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things will never be shaken." -Psalm 15:1-5


"For admission has secretly been gained by some who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly persons who pervert the grace of our God into licentiousness [sexually unrestrained] and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ." -Jude 1:4

"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles? So, every sound tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears evil fruit. A sound tree cannot bear evil fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will know them by their fruits." -Matthew 7:15-20

"Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of the lips that acknowledge [profess] his name [Jesus]." - Hebrews 13:15

"but be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. ...But he who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer that forgets but a doer that acts, he shall be blessed in his doing." -James 1:22, 25

"but he who denies me before men will be denied before the angels of God. And every one who speaks a word against the Son of Man (Jesus) will be forgiven; but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven." -Luke 12:9

Hell

"Christians point people to Jesus, the cults point people to themselves, and the occult point people to the devil." -Christians Cults and Thee Occult, by Ernest Jones  Cults

President Obama more religious apostate

From President Obama's book Barack Obama Audacity of Hope: "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction." 

Not Christian      Church v. State

"Abandonment of early pacifist principles began at the conversion of Constantine from paganism to Christianity. He virtually made the church an agency of Roman State, and abandoning her anti-military convictions." -C. J. Cadoux, historian

   Jesus: "Whoever finds his [lower] life will lose [the higher life], and whoever loses his [lower] life on My account will find [the higher life]. -Matthew 10:39 Amplified Bible

“History has shown, that rather than serving as a force of peace, “religions have served to foment (instigate) scores of horrendous and bloody wars,’ and religious leaders who have ordered their followers, in the name of religion, to kill indiscriminately, ‘have done so by hijacking and distorting the religions in whose name they speak.’” – Israel Singer; World Jewish Congress, Report/Fall 2005, page 7

The following is an excerpt of when the true Government and Church of Jesus Christ was first “hijacked.”

Documentary: The Reconciliation Walk, From Europe to Jerusalem (1999); Defusing the bitter Legacy of the Crusades... and lessons for today:

“In the 4th century [A.D.], an emperor of the Roman Empire by the name Constantine reported that one afternoon he fell into a trance and had a dream or a vision.  He saw a great jewel encrusted cross. And he heard the words “conquer by this.”   He awoke from his dream He called his generals and his goldsmiths together and he ordered them all to take their ceremonial spears and to make crosses of them and then to go out to battle with this cross at the head.  Of course, in one day he completely subverted the meaning of the cross. But he went on from there with his empire to seduce the "church" with power. The one thing that persecution and even martyrdom that had been the mark of the Church since its inception was unable to do, he did with power. The laws which the State used to persecute Christianity were now used by the “church” to persecute all others.  And so the stage was set for on going centuries of abusive power by something called the “church”. From then on the virus of human power has affected the Church [of Yeshua/ Christ Jesus]. But today it seems that somehow God, by His Spirit, is drawing millions people back to centrality of Jesus Christ. His example, and his teachings.”

 

Across the first 1,000 years of Christendom the principal church was the Roman Catholic Church; for the first 1,500 years, up to the time of the Protestant Reformation, the Western world was almost solidly Roman Catholic. -Handbook of Denominations, Frank S. Mead

The late Pope John Paul II  " loathed totalitarianism- 'substitute religion.'" -Vermont Rutland Herald, 4-3-2005.

Roman culture was not neutral with respect to the announcement of God’s reign in Christ. The Gospel of the kingdom is not just about a gift. It is about a change of allegiance. The declaration “Jesus is Lord” was understandably viewed as subversive and a threat to everything the Romans held dear. That’s why Christians had to die. That's why tyrants such as Stalin and Mao tried to stamp out the Church. -The Threat of Jesus,  Rev. Robert Lynn. 

 The Greek god Zeus whose origins as a sky god on the Russian steppes (vast treeless plain) to his powerful influence on Greek and Roman civilization was eclipsed (a loss in splendor, status, reputation) by the rise and spread of Christianity. -Zeus, by Tom Stone.

The Christian’s primary allegiance is always to Jesus Christ. Christians proclaim Him Lord, recognize Him as their legitimate King, and live as citizens of His kingdom first and foremost. The demands of human government are always secondary to the demands of Christ and His Kingdom—as the lives of countless martyrs and the persecuted church past and present attest.  www.breakpoint.org
