Poem: "Fault's Religion" (part one) by Librae Jackson, Deacon
THURSDAY, MAY 22, 2014
Posted by: The Gospel Church | more..
The problem with the world is not religion, but false religion,
beginning with the fall in Genesis, when humans had first been convinced,
by the devil, to sin against The Good Lord
and put forth hands with rebellion,
to take what God, in His wisdom, had withheld from them.

And every subsequent character failure has been
based upon unfaithfulness to God.

This was seen next in Cain’s response
to his brother Abel’s favor,
when Cain, himself, had been wayward
and wavered away from The Lord’s
prescription for sin: that Lamb, which pictured Redemption.

Cain made a twisted decision, to implement his own ideas of religion.
The reality of Who God Is offended him,
and he began to consider, then, an ungodly opposite image of Him.

And, in process of time, he brought what he thought would be adequate.
But Almighty God wasn’t happy with it.

And rather than repent,
Cain exhibited greater wickedness.
The first homicide on earth, Cain would commit.

One day, when his
brother was with him in the field,
his own brother, he killed.

I suspect that the truth, brother Abel didn’t conceal.

But Cain refrained from trusting The Lord, when he was instructed and warned, before that.
The truth came to Cain, when God, Himself, spoke and made it plain, but he ignored that.

Thus, he refused love, and became the first shedder of human blood.

This was the first murder in human history.
Also, the earliest religious persecution in history.
And it revealed more of the curse's misery.
Furthermore, Cain didn't even implore The Lord for mercy,
which he could've received, most certainly.

Brother Abel was a sinner, but he was still able to enter
into the lovely truth of Substitution.
The offering
that he gave out of the first of the flock would be
a statement of his faith in the One Way to be saved.

Brother Abel believed the Gospel.
Cain believed in today’s belief that anything goes, when it comes to God, but it’s not so.

With false methods are false results;
With false messages are false hopes.
Think for a second about every religion you know.
Something truly evil can be said about all of those.

Even so-called christianity; if not according to the true knowledge of Christ,
it’s unbelief and vanity.
Numerous examples can be seen.
Someone isn't necessarily just, just because very religious is what they happen to be.
We must look to Christ, and get a glimpse of God's majesty.

Jesus, The Son of God came:
lived as a Man of God; died as The Lamb of God slain.

He, The God Man didn't stay dead, nor did His body corrupt.
Furthermore, His life and His character on earth were not corrupt.

Nothing truly done in His Name would produce ungodliness and shame.
True religion is union with Him, and God's glory is its #1 aim.

Jesus considered the will of God His bread and meat.
He was also known to speak against hypocrisy.

It's worth remembering that it was religious men who were responsible for killing Him.
But God was in control of their wickedness,
and predetermined it to be the very means of His elect people's deliverance.

So hope is never to be found in mere religion, no matter how sincere the religion.
We're sinners in a dreary condition,
and in need of an Atoning Sacrifice,
which can only be had in Christ.

Nobody has the right
to assume, then, that the fiery justice of Almighty God won't consume them.
They hold a low estimation of The Holy Great One, Whom they offend.
It takes nothing less than a spotless Substitute to prevent
the doom that comes as retribution for sin.
No other solution exists.
So the issue is what you think of Christ. What will you do with Him?

It's easy for us all to hold one another's religious views in contempt.
But each of our souls is accountable for our own individual sins.
It's not enough to point out flaws, and to expose other people as hypocrites.
God calls us all to repent of our own particular wickedness and fraudulence.
What someone else did won't have any effect on what we, ourselves, will get
at the Judgment.
Our rewards or punishments
will be set forth from whether we loved The Lord
and worshipped that Glorious Son of His.

So many people fault religion, in general.
They fail to give attention, though,
to the fact that sinful false religion is the criminal.
