Is modern Christianity the same as biblical Christianity?

Biblical Christianity recognized that God is love. However, they also knew that doesn’t mean that He cancels the consequences of everybody’s bad choices.

Biblical Christians live like this: “Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good” and “Speaking the truth in love.” They also do this: “Putting away lying, ‘Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor.'”

Modern Christianity sometimes tries to use the concept of God’s love as an attempt to excuse, justify, or sanction wrongful behavior. It can mistake love for approval.

Biblical Christians “keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” instead of dividing over politics, race, or doctrine. In the New Testament they resisted the temptation to divide into tribes. Modern Christianity split into thousands of distinct groups. Modern Christianity seems to be trapped in hearing tame teachings while having little interest in doing what’s clearly taught in the Bible.

“Earnestly contend for the faith that was once delivered to the saints (the early Christians).” Anytime you have refused to obey a temptation, you have engaged in successful spiritual warfare. Now use it to contend for the godly things your read about in the lives of the Christians.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
