and White in a Grey World
Steeple, Just People"
By K. A. Graaf, Australia
Has the church
become grey? Is she truly shining her light?
Has she been
tainted with sin, giving in to compromise?
Is she holy and
righteous, pure and sanctified?
Or has she
become stained by impurity, deception and lies?
Can I ask the
question, where in the bible does it say,
That the church
should become compromisingly grey?
that light on a hill or must we please the crowd,
Must we keep
Gods word silent or should we speak it aloud?
But we must
love everyone, yes that is true!
We are to love
the sinner but not accept what they do!
allow the homosexual to hold hands in church with his partner,
allow the de factos to continue to live with each other,
sleep around; Lets get drunk and party all night long,
Lets dance in
the darkness and then drag ourselves into church on Sunday to sing
our worship songs.
Lets leave the
idols in our church buildings; our man made statues,
mind if we dont obey all of His truth!
serious about His commandments; He doesnt really care,
He will cover
us with His grace, after all He has a lot of it to spare!
We have to
become like the world so we can attract sinners to the church,
We are getting
them in; do we care if Jesus suffered to give us this new birth?
doing a great job; look how many people are in the seats! We rave,
matter if we had to compromise! Does it really matter that we are grey?
really coming back for a holy and spotless bride,
that concerned with our sin and pride,
He was only
joking! He didnt really mean what He said,
mind that our rebellion against God led Him to His gruesome death,
It is alright
if we continue in our sin and compromise,
Surely He has
forgotten about what it cost to give us this gift of eternal life!
As long as we
have said the prayer of salvation, Heaven is our guarantee,
have to work out our salvation with fear and trembling, now do we?
If it is right,
it is right; the church should stand for the truth and be strong,
We should be
black and white in a grey world. If it is wrong, it is wrong!
Are we pleasing
God or are we pleasing man?
needs to get up on her feet and start to take a stand!
to her being a powerful force to be reckoned with?
We have become
lukewarm; we have compromised and let the world in,
Are we standing
for the gospel? Are we faithfully obeying?
listening to what Gods word is really saying?
church! Says Jesus, Rise up on your feet!
How can you say
you love Me when you refuse to obey Me?
Stand up for My
truth and My words of light!
Return to Me!
Stop this carnal compromise!
Listen to my
commands; clean up my Church!
Hold on to My
gospel and preach its powerful word!
Only the pure
in heart will see Gods face,
advantage of My Amazing Grace!
Grace was not
given to you to cover your sin and let you continue in your old ways,
It was given to
you to enable you to have the strength and power to change!
Be Holy as I am
Holy. Do not fear man and what He can do to you,
You must fear
the Almighty God and live by His unchanging words of truth!
God does not
compromise; He is not a man that He should lie!
What about the
change? What about the difference?
to repentance and forgiveness?
to the reverence and the fear of the Lord?
Does it matter
who we are and what we do anymore?
What a cost!
What a terrible sacrifice was made for our salvation!
How many people
have spat on Jesus` Heavenly invitation!
If we keep on
deliberately sinning after we have come into the knowledge of the truth,
The bible says
that the fearful expectation of the fire of hell awaits you!
Oh come on! God
cant be serious about Hebrews 10 verse 26!
dont think I want to continue compromising to someday find out
that He is!
God is a God of
love; He abounds in forgiveness and mercy,
true, but He also is a jealous God who will one day display His
judgement, wrath and fury!
The fear of the
Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Maybe its time we wised up and
stopped our foolish games,
Jesus wants His
church to be holy, spotless and blameless. He wants her ready for
when He comes again!
appears, how many of us will be left behind?
Will He find
faith on the earth; will there be those not willing to compromise?
Some will be
too busy being man pleasers to care about what God thought,
We need to do
some serious changing now! Because the time is very short!
I have been a
Christian with one foot in the church while I had the other in the
world. I have been a real compromiser,
But I have
repented of my hypocrisy and rebellion; these days I am a little wiser.
I cannot sit on
the fence anymore. I have chosen which side I am on,
I do not want
to judge anyone; all have fallen short, we have all done wrong
We have all
been guilty of compromise,
But now we must
start to stand up for what God says is wrong and right!
grey. He is simply black and white!
come out of the darkness into His wonderful light?
It is the
wickedness of the world that will colour us a shade of grey,
It is the fear
of man that will keep us deaf to the truth of Gods righteous ways.
want to pain Gods heart anymore by being disobedient to Him,
It cost God His
only Son. He did not compromise when He died for my sin!
imagine if Jesus only obeyed some of His Fathers will and didnt
suffer on that cross?
compromised, all of mankind would have been destroyed and eternally lost!
Jesus was not
grey. He spoke plainly in black and white and His commands are still
hasnt changed His word, but why do some change it to suit this
present day and age?
He said, we
must endure until the end, and if God doesnt shorten the time
no one would even survive!
the ones that will perish in the coming destruction will be the ones
who coloured their lives grey with worldly compromise!
