False Converts

There are those we converted to Christ, that are really sincere and honestly want to do right and then there are those who are converted out of fear of hell fire and don't want to be destroyed by fire. Sometimes the ones that are converted our of fear, and their heart is not really cleansed and made new, think that they can teach and convert people to their way of thinking, which has been warped by their fear.  Fear is not a reason to come to God.  Repentance is the acceptable way to come to Christ in confession of the past and renewed by the power of God.  Let's pray that our conversion is from a true heart with confession and repentance of our past sins.  We don't want to be a False Convert.

Romans 16:17,18  "Now I urge you brethren, note those who cause division and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned and avoid them.  For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly and  deceive the hearts of the simple."

1 Corinthians 6:9,10  "Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God?  Do not be deceived.  Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor coveteous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God."

1 Timothy 4:3,4  "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers, and they will turn their ears away from truth and be turned aside to fables."

2 Peter 2:1  "But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction."

Jude 1:4  "For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ."

Revelation 22:15  "But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolators, and whoever loves and practices a lie."

We can see what False Converts are by these verses, and we must beware that we don't get carried away with their subtle teachings.  That's how the devil gets in the church and tries to destroy it.  So beware my friends and don't let that happen to you.  Grandma Joan
