If it looks like and talk like an Evangelical Tent Revival to pull in the many new people that visit, it is church recruiting. Evangelical Preaching has only one purpose, winning converts.

Thus, this appears to be the situation:



Recruitment/Solicitation:
i) You will not use your membership in the Websites for any type of recruitment to any causes whatsoever.

No, the "garlic" seems to always come to us.

I became a believer when God Almighty himself knocked some sense into my head with a powerful wakeup call.

Apparently it does. It helps OP avoid some of the dangers that are inherent to preaching to people face to face.
Like racists, the anonymity of the web offers the safety to say what he likes without the possibility of retribution or consequence. If I met someone IRL that was as insistent as OP in regurgitating their mythology at me as OP seems to be, they had better be versed in fisticuffs

It would appear the issue of "Jesus died for your sins", speaks in the current sense, and speaks directly to Organized Religion and the Holy Bible promoters. I hear this every time a Organized Church Christian tries to recruit me, that He died for my Sins. I looked and it appears to be the organized churches sins.

Any true and real encouragement would depart from the issues that try to make Jesus look like the pagan Sun god game in any form.

Everyone reads this correctly, Jesus is speaking toward all the organized religion folks that misrepresent and embellish his issue of being more than just a Messiah.


Those that keep doing the same old sin again and again, appear to be the ones that don't need encouragement!!

After all, the End Times speaks to the churches becoming corrupted of the message.

I don't belong to any church because of that specific reason. So, can't be me doing the Sinning.

I also would term that belief as being a true Christian, based in simple truths of a Messiah.

A much more explicit and pointed explanation of the Christian's Serious Problems:


ebionite.com...


Once understood, Paul taught a parallel doctrine with respect to the Law as was embraced by the Ebionites. The problem is that modern Jews remain in bondage to the written word, while Christians who fail to comprehend the true meaning of the Law, dwell in lawless abandonment that makes them apostates to the Kingdom of God..

-------

Unless you can answer these questions
You Cannot be a Disciple of Yeshua/Jesus




This correctly explains why the Christians of this day are the beasts, the anti-Christs.

The "Judaizers" who came to the Galatian Christians were the Essenes. No wonder you hate Paul. but too bad for you Peter wrote 2 Peter 3:15-16.

Come to Christ, leave Babylon.

Try not to get to downtrodden when dealing with the human puppets of demons brother. They never congregate to attack unless you're tearing down the gates of Hell. Remember that.

They (Jesus and Disciples), the ones you call morons, are very serious. You don't know "the way" and shall not be accepted into Heaven. You have chosen to remain among the dead.




ebionite.com...

For I say to you, that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matt 5:18-20 NAS).


Students of Hebrew Mysticism will perceive that what the third-century Christian Church Father Origen wrote was no different than what is contained in the Zohar, where it states: “The narratives of the doctrine are its cloak. The simple look only on the garment, that is upon the narrative of the doctrine; more they know not. The instructed, however, see not merely the cloak, but what the cloak covers”.

These great truths are again demonstrated in the words of Moses Maimonedes, one of the most respected of Jewish theologians, historian, and Talmudist, where he writes about the nature of scripture: “Every time that you find in our books a tale the reality of which seems impossible, a story which is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth; and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of the spirit”. These same truths are again conveyed to us in the words of the Church Historian Eusebius: “Many were led astray by reading the allegorical contents of the scriptures literally in the method of the Pharisees and Sadducees”.
