  2. What a cynical contrived bunch of misdirection. The Bible says what it says. Unredeemed sinners don’t like, won’t like it, never have liked it. Jim Palmer doesn’t like his lifestyle choices to be called what God calls it – sin. So what? Only the redeemed love God and care what His judgements are. The post modern churches that condone sin, have never spoken for God when they did. The blasphemy is when they lie to the lost and make them think they are Christians, when anyone with an ounce of redemption can see that there is no acknowledgement of sin, no repentance, no salvation, no new creature in Christ, and no indwelling Holy Spirit given them to sanctify them.

    God has a word for such lairs, and you won’t like it, – false teachers.

        • AZ, my brother….if what you read here offends you then you have 2 choices;

          1. Continue reading what is posted and riling yourself up and pray for “us sinners”, as you apparently assume we all are

          OR

          2. Stop reading this blog

          Your choice my brother.

          I do not see things as you do. I did once, but then I had an encounter with a Loving Savior and He changed my way of seeing things. Yes…the world is full of evil, and it is full of people that need to know Jesus…I choose to let them see Him through how I love…because after all….we are to be a reflection of Him aren’t we? Of course we are.

          Much Peace and Grace to you!

        “For God was so disgusted with the world and you that he gave his one and only Son.”

        God hates sin. If you love worldiness you hate God.

        “I have come to bring you a new religion.”

        He came to restore our Godly relationship with Him.

        “By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have correct theology.”

        If you love Christ, you will obey him. There is a single correct theology.

        “If anyone would come after me, let him disparage all other religions and their followers.”

        If you love others you will share the truth with them and expose the deception of unbiblical man made religions.

        “If you love me, you will regularly attend a church of your choice… within reason.”

        No, if you are redeemed by God you are the church which is the body of Christ. You do not have license to sin. Churches that condone worldly sinfulness are not Christian, even if the claim to be.

        “Blessed are the tithers for they shall be called the children of God.”

        Tithing is a good start but God should guide your giving. You can’t buy salvation. Jesus did with His life.

        “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done in Heaven after the earth goes up in flames and destroyed.”

        So is he mocking God’s righteous judgement? Judge not God lest you be judged. The righteous don’t need law to be lawful. Law is for the lawless.

        “You have heard it said, ‘Love your neighbor,’ which means the people with whom you attend church and relate to in your Christian sub-culture.”

        Love does not mean accept sin. Doing so means that you hate God.

        “In my Father’s house there are a limited number of rooms. But no worries, there is plenty of room in Hell.”

        If he questioning heaven and hell? Its not a cosmic game of musical chairs. Many will go to hell because the deserve to go there. Those who go to heaven do so by God’s grace that takes away their sin and makes them holy.

        “The kingdom of God has come!… Well, not exactly. I mean, not completely. Let’s face it, the really-real kingdom comes after we die. Hang in there. It won’t be long.”

        Is he mocking justification, sanctification, and glorification?
        The saved are in the kingdom of God eternally. The love God, God’s word, and seek to do God ‘s righteous will.

        “And you will know the truth and the truth will make you superior to all the other simpletons who never learned Greek or Hebrew.”

        The bible is true in the original correctly translated. Only the save possess the spiritual discernment to understand and accept it. The gospel is easy enough for the saved simpleton and beyond the comprehension of unsaved genius.

        “You are the light of the world… well… in a sinful-filthy-scum kind of way.”

        Jesus and those in Christ are the light of the world. The sinful-filthy-scum aren ‘t.

        “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you a checklist of things to do and not do in order to remain in God’s favor.”

        God’s burden is lite. The redeemed will act redeemed.

        “For God so loved the world… you know like theoretically… as in, God loves the big ‘W’-world. But when it come to you specifically, that are quite a few things that would need to change for God to actually and specifically love… or even like… YOU.”

        The world are already condemned. Jesus came to save The elect from their sins and does perfectly. Works will not get you to heaven, but the saved will obey God.

        “He appeared to his disciples over a period of 40 days and spoke about how to incorporate his life and teaching as a 501(c)3, and go into all the earth to build mega-churches in his name.”

        Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. (Matthew 28:19, 20 NKJV)

        The power to tax is the power to control or destroy. Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and Give to God what is God’s. The redeemed belong to God.

        So where is the godly wisdom in what Jim Palmer wrote? Rather that write what Jesus did ‘t say, he should honor what Jesus did say and not normalize the sinfulness of our society. The world is condemned already. Lead those who will come to Christ in repentance so that they may be saved.

        • AZ….my brother…you must be seeing this post through a different lens than I, because I simply do not see the problem with what Jim Palmer has written. You are reading way too much into it.

          As far as questioning his salvation….is that really your place? The answer is…NO!

          Our job as Followers of Christ is to do that which He has called us to which is, love as He loved, Speak as He spoke, show grace as He has shown, and share the Good News of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
