Most of these Christians claim to understand and despise the doctrines of post-modernism and tolerance. However, they do not realise that they have cowered down before these strongholds of Lucifer, and so fail to confront and attack them. Instead, they aggressively question you about what you mean when you criticise political correctness and speak about not throwing pearls of wisdom at swine. They lecture you about not making generalisations of certain people groups to be swine, and, as if it was not irrelevant enough, throw back at you examples of flawed generalisations that they think you have made.
They think they know what it means to not pander to the desires and interests of others and thereby not compromise one’s values, but fail to understand that this is political correctness. As such, they think it is wrong to tell the unsaved what sins they are guilty of. Such Christians think that the unsaved will believe when they simply tell them that God loves them. Although it is true that God loves all people, it is not why witnessing should be done. It is done to warn people that they are facing eternal punishment because they are living in the sinful flesh. They need to be told first and foremost why they should repent because otherwise they would think they would be just fine where they are.
On the other hand, there are the Christians who see through this immorality and decadence of the world, and label Christians who do not actively engage in worldly pursuits to fight these evils as “bad people”. These Christians tend to be more “academic” and most likely to have undergone theological training, or become theologians themselves. These Christians tend to be labelled by the liberal secularists to be “reactionary” and seen by liberal secularists to be people whose sole reason of entering or engaging in public life to be to impose morality on society that deems the Bible irrelevant and outdated.
While these Christians tend to speak publicly against social evils, nevertheless, most of them do not see through the spirit of Mammon and hence, the prosperity “gospel” that has infected the modern Church, or the human-centred gospel, which is humanism in the guise of “Christianity”.
Despite being the most knowledgeable about the Bible, they fail to see through their own sin and mistaken understanding of the Bible, but owing to their pride, they are angered by anyone who questions or challenges their words about Biblical teaching. This would most precisely describe the Pharisees and other “religious” people of Jesus’ time who tried to kill Jesus several times before He was actually executed, and who arrogantly tried to trap Jesus into sin, (if it was even possible to make Jesus sin).
These “religious” people, as a result of their pride, twist the Bible to interpret it in their own light, not through God’s guidance. Ironically, they are vulnerable to be used and are used by Lucifer to twist the Bible and promote teachings that are only partially true, and therefore false. They think they know everything when they do not. That is why it was not the unsaved who gave Jesus the biggest headache, but these “religious” people.
The two types of Christians described previously are the main reason why many of the unsaved who do respect and even support Christianity become even more reluctant to seek God. Most Christians simply blame the unsaved for choosing to stay that way, without considering or even realising how they themselves are the problem. Most Christians in the modern world are misguided and confused, some of whom do not know what the real Church of one True God is supposed to be, owing to the ignorance of false doctrines. The modern Church cowered down to tolerance for fear of ostracism and appearing irrelevant to mainstream secular society since many Christians have the consumerist mentality that religion is solely a matter of private belief that is up to the individual to determine. Furthermore, many false gospels have swept into the Church, with false teachings about why people should repent in the first place. Many Christians do not even understand what “false” means.
False means absolutely anything that deviates, even to the slightest extent, from the Word of God. False doctrines are Lucifer’s tools for separating people from God. They must be weeded out and burned in the hottest fire.
