    Pastor’s kids

    There are Hollywood stars, and famous singers among others who claim to be a special class of Christians, because their father is or was a pastor. Sadly, many of these people have not stepped in a church since they left home, and lead a life style just as carnal as unsaved people do. Many have never read scripture, and some who have don’t hold to the inerrant truth of scripture.

    Certainly, no one wants to deny their parentage and it is common to feel proud of one’s parents for many reasons. However, the problem with this amongst Christians is that there are some who gain entry into the ministry, merely based on heritage, without being properly tested.

    It is one thing to know that one is a descendant of a pastor, or even godly parents, but the real question is whether the person is a true Christian, and what evidence confirms this. Following in the foot steps of one’s earthly father or parents is no guarantee that one is following in the foot steps of the New Covenant of Jesus Christ.

    Interestingly, the Bible points out by many examples that being born to godly parents, or pastors does not automatically mean that a person is themselves godly or saved. Salvation does not work that way.

    The practice of putting people into the ministry based on human heritage alone is error, and should be avoided. Having a godly person as one’s parent should neither qualify or prevent a person from entering the ministry if they feel so called by God.

     

    Nevertheless, all who enter the ministry are commanded by God to be a true believer and follower of Jesus Christ, and obedient out of love for Him in practice publicly and privately.

     

    The Bible is clear that salvation is not passed on by natural birth, race or nationality, but by spiritual birth of everyone who believes in and on Jesus Christ and obey Him. It is error and presumption to claim some sort of elite spiritual status above all other Christians, based on mere human parentage, race or nationality. Some who so claim are irreverent and presume they have authority, in error. to change the gospel message to make it relevant to the world, rarely say the name of Jesus Christ, and do their uttermost to never address Him as Lord. Some even corrupt the message of the cross and give it in a way that makes it appear wrongly that those who receive Christ are doing God a favor, thereby making God to be a servant of man and not man to be a servant, worshiper, and child of God to serve Him above all men and every creature.

    There are many other things that they also do, and by their sloth the care of the flock is non-existent as they do not foster growth amongst the people to help him by teaching them to care for one another or even to know that they must.

    This only addresses those for whom the shoe fits. Thankfully, many in the ministry who are descendants of pastors and godly parents, although thankful for it, nevertheless understand that it is only through faith in Jesus Christ that they have entered into His kingdom, never by works or human parentage.

    Let us open our hearts and doors to those ministers who come with the true gospel message through the door of faith in Jesus Christ. Let us be fully grounded in the absolute authority of the Bible to test the spirits to discern truth from error

    BURN THEM UP NOW WITHOUT DELAY!

     

    And fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.

    Act 19:18 And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds. 19 Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver. 20 So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.

    Curious arts and all books that contradict the inerrant truth of scripture are all straight from the devil, and promoted by his evil false prophets. All kinds of alarm bells should be going off in the minds of those who in error put their trust of being saved based on the lies in these demonic books and usage of curious arts.

     

    If you cannot burn them tear up the pages and throw them in the garbage, because that is what they are sheer garbage. All of them credit a man, angel, thing, idea, philosophy, or woman and their particular false doctrines. If anybody, during your church or Bible studies, hands you their “special” book that promotes some “brand or doctrine” not found in the Bible reject it. Throw away all of their curious arts such as tokens, articles, bells, chimes, whistles, pieces of cloths, images, special “anointing” oils, “special” worship paraphernalia etc.

    Find a Bible believing church, if your church will not repent.

    2Co 6:15 - And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
