We are strangers in a foreign land:
- Jesus spoke of forsaking all, taking up the Cross and following Him.
- Jesus told the rich young ruler to sell all that he had, give the money to the poor and follow Him.
- Jesus said that those who love Father, mother, spouse, children, houses or lands more than they love Him are not worthy of Him.
- The Disciples walked away from everything to follow Jesus.
- The Apostles were poor and persecuted.
- Paul wondered about the known world, living in other people’s houses and eating other people’s food. He was beaten, stoned, shipwrecked, imprisoned and finally beheaded for the Cross of Christ.
- Stephen, a new convert, was stoned to death.
- Peter was crucified upside down.
- John spent his last years exiled on a prison island.
- The history of the Church over two thousand years is a story of poverty, misery and persecution.
- Christians around the world today are persecuted and ostracized from society…
BUT, in the United States, Christianity has claimed that health, wealth and prosperity are the sign of a Christian…
Around the world, baptized believers must abandon all in order to follow Jesus. Discipleship is the costliest venture in the world… unless you live in America.
Stand by, the American Christian Illusion is about to come crashing down. We will soon see who loves Jesus and who loves prosperity.
The insane delusion is over…

I’m sure Paul wondered, WHILE he was WANDERING! Good post!

Good article. The walls are truly about to come crashing down. God’s Word foretells of a notable falling away of believers. This is more than just apostate teaching, this is the seed sown among stony ground. The seed germinated, even grew; yet when persecution arose, it fell away. My article, “Hold Fast” echoes the truth of this article. It starts about the fifth post down on my blog.
Unfortunately the title of being a “Christian ” holds with it a convienence that all too often and easily goes unchallenged or penalized for the blatant public choice not to be expected to conform to another more radical philosophy of the establishment that’s in power over the society in which we maybe forced to live within whilst it’s against our willingness to conform to accept another more radical public agenda.
