The next time some well-meaning (or not so well-meaning) person in God’s church, declares “don’t judge me,” ask them if they made a judgment to say “don’t judge me!” Of course they did. That’s how ridiculous things have gotten in the religious circles of the King.
Brother Tim has again hit the nail on the head with this piece about modern day judgment haters in the body of Christ. His careful exegesis of the passages dealing with admonishment and exhortation is extensive. And his example of the sports medicine treatment is destined to become a classic example here at Walk Worthy.
Be prepared to get prepared for another round of equipping to preach, teach, and disciple the real Gospel of Jesus Christ!
DON’T JUDGE ME – BY TIM PRICE
As I am reading in the New Testament, on an accelerated pace, I am astounded at the number of texts directing believers to admonish, exhort, confront, reprove and encourage one another. There are ten such directives if there is one. Implied is that these experiences should be ongoing and common rather than rare and unusual. Read the rest of this entry »
Rarely, if ever, does the modern body of Christ preach about the teachings and warnings of the anointed and Holy Spirit resident Old Testament prophets.
There are several reasons for this we surmise. Their message is not warm and fuzzy, ishy squishy mud between the toes that is so desired today. Their message comes from the OT where many discount the fact that “all Scripture is inspired and profitable…” meaning the first covenant.

How deceived!
Notice the blanket rebuke, condemnation, and judgment. But like Moses, Aaron, Joshua, Caleb, and a small minority of the Israeli’s in the wilderness, there are always a few who are saved and walking holy but suffer along with the rest.
For every Joshua, there are millions of Saul’s hiding amidst God’s body. For every Kaleb, there are millions of Solomon’s who will not persevere to the very end. Read the rest of this entry »
Easter, Memorial Day, July 4th, Halloween, Christmas, etc. For some, these names conjure up pleasant and meaningful times. But what says the Lord God Creator?
Holiday is a modern cultural adaptation of the phrase “holy day.” These true and real “holy days” were set aside by God and for God to be observed and celebrated, like the seven feasts and festivals of the Old Testament. So, the term should really read “hol-y-day.” But, alas, the average modern person, even church goer, is so conditioned to the ways of the world
Some of you may object to the fact that I called these modern hol-y-days demonic. Well, before you rush to judgment, let us recall the Word through the apostle John in 1 John 5:19 declares that Read the rest of this entry »
