The Old Cowboy Preacher
'Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and DOCTRINE. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to them selves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” II Timothy 4:2-4.
“Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not everyone that saith unto me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day; Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then I will profess unto them, I never knew you; depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Matthew 7:20-23.
In our liberal churches and denominations today, we find many who are working iniquity. If you are standing in the pulpit of God's house, and condoning same sex marriage, homosexuality, abortion and sin, just because the government has legalized it, you are an abomination to God, and you will pay the price. “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
Sin is sin, it doesn't matter if everyone is doing it, or if the politicians have legalized it, it is still sin in God's eyes. We have preachers today in our liberal churches who are there for monetary gain or popularity, not because God called them. They are bringing damnation on themselves, and they are leading their congregation astray. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, if it was sin 2,000 years ago, it is sin today. We need preachers that will preach the whole word of God; sin is sin, hell is hot, heaven is real, and Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation. “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Acts 4:12.There is no “easy” salvation, it is believe, repent and confess that Jesus Christ is
God's Son, and that he was crucified, buried, and rose again to save us from our sins. A head knowledge of Jesus won't save you, it must be a heart knowledge of who he is, even Satan has a head knowledge of Jesus, but he will spend eternity in hell.
Things to ponder from the old cowboy preacher; You can't talk it till you walk it, and you can't walk it, if you don't know where you are going.
