In our culture, there are many myths that have made their way to the body of Christ. These lies have disarmed and silenced many Christians for the past century. Because they have embraced these, they have retired themselves from demonstrating the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the arts, political sciences, biology, physics, and many other fields. These lies are
1. The end of the world is near. While I do affirm the doctrine of the Second Coming and Christ's any moment return, many Christians are more interested in end-time charts and eshatological pop culture than they seem in proclaiming the Gospel and transforming culture. The way Christians should prepare for Jesus's coming is to do the work he has called us to do. That means evangelizing, Christians being the forerunners in scientific research,being a Godly model in the political field, or being the influential teacher impacting the next generation. We don't know when Christ is going return. It is hidden for a reason. People have made claims about Christ's return for the past 2,000 years. They have all been proven wrong. Let us not get distracted from our mission by doing the work that God requires us to do.
2. Our citizenship is in Heaven, so let us neglect the Earthly activities. Let me explain before you call me a heretic, the way we store treasures in heaven is to invest in raising a Godly family, preaching the Gospel,and through charity. We have embraced this platonic thinking that everything on earth is bad that we ignore the Great Commission and instead hide behind the walls of our churches waiting to be taken up into heaven. It is true that Earth is not our home and this life is temporary, we need to do our role in making the Great Commission a reality. There is so much more to the Christian life than sitting on the sidelines watching the world go down the tubes.
3. Two-kingdom theology. This is where we separate our Christian life from our involvement in politics and the sciences. This view has led Christians to believe that politics and the sciences are neutral when it comes to religious matters. Sad to tell you, the Humanists and evloutionists have taken advantage of this thinking. Evolutionary science is dominant in biology and humanistic thinking is prevailiant in our court rooms, legistures, and executive leaders. There is no such thing as neutrality. Our government is based on the Bible or it is not. Everyone has something called a worldview. This is the lens where we view the world and everything in it. People view the world according to God's word or those man's imaginary religion. This is the reason why our world is in the mess it is in today. We have separated our Christian involvement from the world and the enemies of Christianity have taken advantage of this.
This is my spiel for now. Let me know what you think!
