UNREPENTANT CHURCHES? by steve finnell
Does God sanction unrepentant Christian churches? Do unrepentant Christians receive a free pass into the kingdom of God?
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) Christian churches believe that God does not required them to repent of their sins. What does the Bible teach?
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor, drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, will inherit the kingdom of God. (NKJV)
God does not welcome unrepentant Christians into His kingdom.
1 Corinthians 6:11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God (NKJV)
Paul said such were some of you.(PAST TENSE) Paul did not say such are some of you.(PRESENT TENSE)
There are many Christian churches that could be named (FDATE) fornicators, drunkards, adulterers, thieves, extortioners. Most congregations prefer not to advertise the unrepentant Christians they welcome in their churches. Most churches do not preach repentance as a condition to inherit the kingdom of God.
Can Christians be forgiven from sins after they sin as Christians? Yes. The question is; does a sinful lifestyle represent a truly repentant Christian? Will unrepentant Christians inherit the kingdom of God? The Scriptures say no. (Ephesians 5:1-5........has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. (NKJV) Galatians 5:16-21....will not inherit the kingdom of God.(NKJV)
