      "We Have to Stop Embracing Everyone That Names the Name of Christ."

      Saturday, February 24, 2007

      Years ago, I was one of the pastors of a very large church, and the senior pastor was very skinny. He was only about 6 foot something and 120 pounds; a very slight man, and I tell you that for a reason. This pastor had a shepherd's heart. He just loved the flock. He would take up the lamb in his arms, and just so loved his people. (He was) a very godly man filled with God's spirit.

      One night, there was a knock on his door at his house about 3AM. One of his two teenage sons got up and opened the door, and it was some guy wanting counsel at 3 o'clock in the morning. (The boy) knowing his father's heart didn't hesitate to go to the bedroom, knock on his Dad's door and say, "Dad, someone needs counseling." He said, "I'll be out in a minute. Tell him to wait in the living room." So the pastor got up, got dressed, and walked down the hallway, into the living room, and as he stepped in the living room, a 14 inch blade machette came down on him and so sliced him that when his sons heard him screaming they found his blood around the walls of the living room. They thought he had been killed. The man that did it was a very angry gentleman.


      The next day, a pastor called me and said, "Ray, did you hear what happened last night?"

      I said, "Whew, heavy!"

      He said, "HEAVY!? The guy that did that went to my church!" and then he said, "Fancy that! Another Christian doing that to the pastor!"

      I said, "Hang on a minute... If some guy tries to cut the head off the senior pastor, you can probably come to the conclusion that he lacks somewhat in the areas of love, goodness, gentleness, and self-control!"


      Folks, we have to stop embracing everyone that names the name of Christ and saying, "You're a Christian. You've given your heart to Jesus." The Bible speaks of false bretheren, false apostles, false prophets, false teachers, ...and false conversions.
