3 Manierojn Deny Dio

Vi malkonfesis la Dio de la Universo? Kredu ĝin aŭ ne, tio estas grava demando por ni ĉiuj pripensi. Estas klara en Scripture ke eterna vivo estas libere donita al tiuj, kiuj fidas al Dio kaj kredas Lia Bona Novaĵo, kaj ĝuste juĝo efektivigas sur kiuj malkonfesas Lin. Sed ekzistas pli ol unu maniero nei dio. Jen tri kiu mi trovis en la Nova Testamento.

1. Nei ke Jesuo estas Kiun Li diris, ke li
“Kiu estas la mensogisto, krom tiu, kiu malkonfesas, ke Jesuo estas la Kristo? Kiu estas la antikristo, tiu, kiu malkonfesas la Patron kaj la Filon. Neniu neas la Filon, havas la Patron. Kiu konfesas la Filon, havas ankaux la Patron.”

1 john 2:22-23

Estas multaj homoj en nia mondo hodiaŭ kiu pripensas sin kiel spirita aŭ eĉ religiaj personoj. Ili kredas ke Dio ekzistas, kaj ili provas adorantoj siamaniere. Eble ili eĉ vidas Jesuon kiel granda instruisto aŭ profeto de Dio. Sed se ili ne kredas ke Jesuo estas kiu li diris ke li estas, ili malkonfesas Li.

Vidante Jesuon nur kiel granda morala instruisto ankoraŭ malakcepti Lin kaj do malakcepti Dio. Dio direktas nian atenton al Jesuo kiel la savanto de la mondo kaj ĝi ne proponas al ni alternativon vojoj (john 14:6, agoj 4:12).

Do malakcepti Jesuo malakcepti Dio. sed, kiel Johano 1:12 diras, "Al ĉiuj, kiuj lin akceptis, kiuj fidis al lia nomo, li donis la rajton fariĝi filoj de Dio.” Ĉiu povas esti infano de Dio, se ili kredus sur Jesuo.

2. Ne Agnoskanta Jesuo Antaŭ Aliaj
“Do ĉiu, kiu konfesos min antaux homoj, Mi ankaux konfesos antaux mia Patro, kiu estas en la ĉielo, sed kiu malkonfesos min antaux homoj,, Mi ankaux malkonfesos antaux mia Patro, kiu estas en la ĉielo.”

Matthew 10:32-33

Do eble ni konfesas Jesuon Sinjoro en niaj koroj. Sed ni povas ankoraŭ malkonfesas Lin per hontante pri Li antaŭe aliaj. nun, ni ĉiuj estis malrapida agnoski nian fidon antaŭ aliaj. Ni vivas en kulturo kiu estas ĉiam pli malamika al religio kaj specife kristanismo. Kristanoj estas pentritaj kiel idiotoj, kiuj kredas je stulta, malutila, kaj bigota fabeloj. Tio povas foje konduki nin al ŝrumpi reen, kaj rifuzas agnoski Jesuon antaŭ kiuj ni pensas mokos ni.

Tio estas tragika. Ĝi faras Jesuo aspektas malgranda kaj ĝi estas la neado de ĉiu ke li estas. Sed estu avertita, se ni decidas nei Jesuo antaux homoj, Li ankaŭ malkonfesos antaŭ la Patro. Kaj kiam ni staras antaux Dio krom se Jesuo diras, "Li estas kun mi,” ni ne gxenas. La taŭga respondo al la Kristo ne honto aŭ timo, sed kuragxe kaj klopodo por kunhavigi Li antaŭe aliaj.

3. hipokriteco
“Ili pretendas koni Dion, sed ili malkonfesas Lin per siaj faroj.”

Tito 1:16

Do eble ĉe tiu punkto vi sentas kiel vi estas faranta tre bona. Vi konfesas Jesuon Kriston, kaj vi estas fiera diri ke vi estas kristano. Mia sekvanta demando por vi estas, "Kion faras via vivo diri?” Eblas por ni krii de la tegmento suproj "Jesuo estas Sinjoro kaj mi estas lia discxiplo!” tamen tia senorda vivojn ke niaj vortoj dronis eksteren.

en Tito 1, Paul parolas pri falsaj instruistoj nei Dion per siaj verkoj. Sed neniu el ni povas vivi en maniero kiu kontraŭdiras kion ni diras. Fidon en Jesuo, ĉiam ŝanĝi la manieron ni vivas. Do se via vivo aspektas kiel nenio ŝanĝiĝis, io ne pravas. Nia avido estas neado de Dio bonan planon por seksa deziro. Nia fiero estas neo de Dia lokon kiel centro de ĉio. Ĉiuj niaj malobeo estas neado de la dia rolo kiel legitima Sinjoro de ĉiuj Kreo.

Vi vortojn agnoski Jesuon, sed viaj verkoj malkonfesas Lin? Vi ami aliaj (john 15)? Vi obeanta Li (john 14:15)? Vi donas frukton (Galatoj 5:22-23)? Vi sacrificially donanta vin mem kaj viajn rimedojn por aliaj (2 Korintanoj 8:1-5)? Vi sercxas Dion en Lia Vorto?

Multaj el ni rigardos tiujn punktojn kaj vidi iuj de ni en unu aŭ ĉiuj el ili. Se vi ja sentas honton pro la vojoj vi malkonfesis Lin, estas Bona Novaĵo. Eĉ neadon de Dio estis pagita ĉe la kruco de Jesuo, kiel ni vidas tiom klare kun Petro. Se vi returnos sin de tiu peko de neo, kaj ricevi Jesuon fide, ke peko estos pardonita.

Konservu fidanta Kristo fam.

    Wonderful post! It definitely moved me to reflect on my own actions. Small digressionthe verse referenced in Titus should be 1:16, not 2:16. May God continue to use you powerfully man of God!

    I truly believe Jesus is God’s son sent to this earth to redeem every one who is lost. But that being said, I am kind of a shy person around other people, and I get awkward in social occasions that don’t involve conversation about Jesus and the Gospel, let alone the conversations that do involve talking about Jesus because I guess I am afraid of the consequences. How can I overcome this fear? Some verses that will help?

    • FlacoRespondu

      I truly do understand what you mean when it comes to those times when the conversations seems to turn anti Christian or religious because I tend to get that a lot being in the military. In fact just the other day it happendA captain spoke to me about Aliens creating humans on earth and his belief about them. If you’r not familiar with this view it comes on the History Channel a lot (Ancient Aliens). Though this view is very interesting to me, I do not believe it myself. Anyway, I tend to do ok jobs when it comes to speaking for our Lord. Sometimes I’m nervous, sometimes I’m not, but the important thing is to speak. Let it be known what you believe. Courage is doing something even though we are afraid. To be totally honest, in the end this guy made me look pretty stupid. I choked a lot, I forgot a lot of information I have in the back of my head, and went totally blank. I felt stupid and I’m sure I looked stupid. tamen, I did my best and he knows exactly what I believe despite me being able to make a great case for it. This I believe is part of being a Christian; Persecution. I felt harassed and rediculous, but if the chance came again to speak about God I would do it all over again for the Kingdoms sake, but i’ll be ready next time no doubt lolhopefully. It’s all about living for God, and in Christ we see that in living for God we will be persecuted and harrased. The important thing is to stand up for God. I imagin God loves to see a scared little boy attemt to speak for God in a confrontational situation, then see a major theologan shut down every one in his path. I wonder what Jesus looked like to others when he was on the cross. I think stupid would fit right, because he claimed to be God, yet others saw that he couldnt even help himself off the cross. He looked stupid to others just as I had looked stupid to others in my conversation with the Captian, but I wonder what the Father thought of Jesus on the crossproud I assume.

      Matthew 10:28
      Do not be affraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather be affraid of the one who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

        Hi this comment really ministered to me here in December of 2014. I just asked God to forgive me and to help me to not deny Him and if I ever have to prove He is LLord I don’t care how stupid I look as long as my Father is proud, I LOVE YOU JESUS.

  3. JacobPRespondu

    Thank you very much for this post! It was very encouraging and uplifting. I enjoyed the insight from the comments too! God bless you all! Praise Christ King of Kings Lord of Lords! <3 Honestly I have been struggling allot. A lot of times I feel like I'm too bad I won't get any better and I don't really believe with all my heart all my soul and all my mind. I get upset cause I don't put him first a lot. If I did I wouldn't give in to lust. I know I love him tho. I am thankful! I know he loves me! I know he forgives even my sins. I don't understand why. I'm very shy and fearful. It's very hard to talk and show that I'm proud of believing in God I already feel like I'm gonna be ridiculed or they won't care to hear or talk about God. Sometimes I think because I get ashamed. I'm not ashamed of Christ. I'm ashamed that I don't have all the answers and I can't explain all the details that I don't know enough. And I'm ashamed I'm not going to represent Christ well. So I get scared and get quiet. I'm sorry I'm making such a long comment. But I guess I'm just saying I needed the encouragement! That I'm not alone! Christ forgives! I honestly think I am a bad Christian and sometimes doubt I'm saved. A lot lately cause I have been using drugs and been lusting alot and I feel like I have fallen. Like because I'm using drugs again and lusting even tho I want to stop truly, does that mean I'm not saved anymore?

  4. RitaRespondu

    I couldnt stop My tears when i read whats written because i might have denied Jesus without meaning it and iam truly sorry Cuz i love Jesus and i believe truely in Jesus and God and i Will never again deny or be ashamed in anyway. I have never been ashamed of Jesus its just that à LOT of people make me look stupid when i talk about My belive in God and make me feel iam dum or something and that make me not wanting to talk about My belive in Jesus. Thats wrong i Will never do that again i prayed to God and Jesus for forgivness and from now i Will change and i wont deny him in anyway. I love you Jesus and God thank you for iam Christian and iam so proud. Thank you Flaco and jacobp what you both wrote touched my heart deeply. Rita

    @JacobP: I’m not sure if anybody else answered your ending question there or not. tamen, I felt led to respond: doing drugs, lusting, pride, etc are habits that come from our sinful nature. They are sins and sin, simply put, is anything that separates us from God. When Jesus died on the cross, He saved our souls. john 3:16 comes to my spirit. tiel, you are saved Jacob. tamen, the work is not done b/c now we must invite the Holy Spirit to re-birth usas Jesus told Nicodemus, we must be born again. romanoj 12:2 tells us to not be conformed to this world, but to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. And Galatians 5:16 says that if we abide in the Spirit, we shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. tiel, Jacob, we are saved; however, we must now allow God to change our old sinful habits, deziroj, and mindsets through His Spiritthrough His Word. We are sanctified, cleansed, and washed by Christ (the living Word)- reference to Ephesians 5:25-26. Moral of the story is JacobP: jes, you are saved. And Jesus loves you deeply. tamen, the sin in your life/our lives separate us from Him in those areas. We must allow His Word to renew our minds daily and to transform us into His image. We want to be followers of Christ, not just through word and deedfrom our hearts. Can God clearly see you hunger and thirst for righteousnessdo we truly want Him? …I really hope this helps one of my brothers or sisters.

    My dear friends in Christ,
    I pray things are going well for all of you. It brings me joy to see many express the difficulties of life and the daily struggles to overcome. I am also happy to see others encourage with scripture and love to aid those who struggle. I’ve thought of several points one can use while in a group to maybe help out the insecurity we all share. Look at it this way: we all have a belief system inside us all. To express what is reallyin youtakes courage but when it comes to people slandering you forwhat makes us unique”, is not truly your problem. Do not be afraid to say that your speech offends the God I love. Keep it simple. We can not all be like Paul, but we can be like Andrew. I’ve found the source of love, Jesuo. I’ve found what makes me have peace: Jesuo! Maybe when others see you at peace and not participating ingossipwill change even one person. Remember that the praise we really seek is Jesus’, not mans> Keep up the fight, it never gets easier. Lets all of us walk together , fighting the good fight. To God be the Glory!

  7. KatieRespondu

    @latoyah Austin what you wrote is very true! God does love us and we are saved. @jacobp But we must first confess with our mouth our sins to Christ (this is done through repentance) and then turn from our wicked ways (Ezekiel 14:6). Change does not happen over night and repentance is daily/constantly ,but when we open our hearts and make ourselves available to God to change us He will. I pray that the Lord will meet you right where you are in this walk and that you will begin to hate sin as Christ does. I declare boldness over you that when the test of defending Christ comes around again you will be empowered by His spirit to speak boldly! And help others around you to come to know Christ (you can related to those who have been where you were). God is a strategic God and he does not make mistakes, where things go wrong is when we think we are god and try to make our own decisions/choices in life. I hope you see this and are in a better place now. Also read the bible, God gave us instructions on how to live The New Testament (everything after Matthew) is a great place to start; let it sink in and get understanding before moving on to the next thing.

    I have to ask Jesus to forgive me , i have rejected him in more ways than one out of ignorance, feeling unworthy for forgiveness when it’s not about how good i am, but the blood that Jesus shed was more than enough.

  9. TimmieRespondu

    Thanks for this. I am always looking for new ways to deny god and this article was a big help in providing me with new blasphemous options. The wholeGod is just another ridiculous myth born of a bronze age society that had no clue as to how the universe actually works.speech gets old after a while. For a time I mixed it up with theThere is no evidence outside of biblical texts for the historical existence of Jesus Christ despite the exceptional job the Roman Empire did at keeping records.and theNo one has to go back to the city they were born in for a census and to pay their taxes. The Romans would have wanted to know where people were living now and wanted the tax revenue there. The trip to Bethlehem is a literary device developed after the fact so that Jesusbirth site lined up with previous prophecy. ankaŭ, the Romans have no records of any such census or taxation.speeches but even those get tired after several dozen times of repeating them to people who can’t be bothered to think for themselves for ten seconds. So once again, thank you for providing me with new and inventive ways to deny the existence of you invisible sky daddy. I fully appreciate it!

    Timmie : “The trip to Bethlehem is a literary device developed after the fact” … Really ? You really believe this ? Just one question, 4 words … “what if you’re wrong”.

    what if someone who has been a Christian their whole lives, been baptized, seen miracles happen, and so much more then tell a lie to someone by sayingI wouldn’t say I’m Christian but I believe in a higher power”.. will God forgive them?? if they truly feel horrible about it and repent?

      Yes he will. God understands our weaknesses. That person just needs to become unashamed of the Gospel. God looks for steady growth, not instant perfection.

    I was Christian and my mind took over to where I started to think wrong of God and thought he was sending me to he’ll and he’ll thought would not stop so I thought it was from him to point I accepted going there and threatened God destroy business and self and then hardened heart against God and left faith.

    Hi ladies! Jesuo estas Sinjoro! Jesus has turned my life around, I am no longer a masturbater, cutter(self-harm), bully, hater, and everything I disliked of myself. It takes a lot for some people to say about what I said, Fortunately, for me It didn’t because God have forgiven me of these sins and I am not ashamed to tell anyone because it didn’t take anything at all for me to say it and I don’t want my secrets to be a stumbling block to someone. I would like for people to continue with the Lord no matter what it takes and ask him to deliver you from any sins and that you will become the will of the Lord! Dankon, God for your mercy and grace! This topic (3 ways to deny God) was very helpful because I searched up on google onhow can I acknowledge Jesus morebecause I want people to know Jesus is Lord over everything and I want to do more and more for the Lord and this is one of the best ways. I am not ashamed of the Lord and I will serve him for the rest or my life until I turn back to dust. Have a great day and I hope this post helps someone out there! There is power in the name of Jesus, thank you Lord!

    In response to Jacob. I just want to say and I don’t have the written scripture available to me at this moment. But it seems as if you are torn between the Holy Spirit and the things of this world. I’m not picking on you this is just what is mortal beings of Gods creation all experience. There is a passage of scripture where a man ask Jesus of what he must do to be saved and Jesus told him todeny yourself, take up your cross , and follow me.Brother, that is heavy! I do know somewhere in the book of Mark Jesus also saidthat if you do not take up your cross and follow me that you are not worthy of me”. Do I feel like doing that? In my mortal nature I do not. As I have learned of the scriptures and have a clearer picture about the love of God and the sacrifice he made in creating us and then allowing us a freedom of choice of choosing Him and his way or not and then having his Son that lived a mortal life with us for atone only to have him tortured to death because of those times when we don’t follow God, then I believe it is worth it for me to follow what He commanded. Since I have taken the instruction from Jesus and applied it to my daily living I no longer feel a victim of this world and life. I feel I have purpose in living and that I am an important part of this life though it may seem small. God has blessed me with learning and I’d like to say to the intellectuals that science DOES prove a divine Creator. This Creator is not limited to the limitations of a mortal body as we are nor is God creation itself. Let’s take a look at Einstein. Sadly he could not conceive that a divine being could create everything that exist, yet Einsteins findings proved that all matter is made from energy. Energy is not a substance but it is a force. So how then can a force be uniquely be formed into substances and some of those substances become a living creation. There is the proof that there is a God of the universe and we are not alone left to suffer and die in vain glory. God has high expectations of us. This life is a test and we must pass the test with the instructions He has given us.
