Publisher Description

THE FAKE COMMISSION is written to stir the reader into a serious examination of the true calling on his life. Even Christians can be subject to the influences of the world around them. Some of these influences include the world defining what Christianity is supposed to look like. The world’s definition requires that Christians be nice, do a few good things, never judge, and keep their mouths closed, unless they are advocating viewpoints that will not offend anyone. The reward for such compliance is worldly acceptance, religious approval and financial contributions. This book does not simply explore what the world is telling the church to be, it also examines what a growing segment of the visible church is telling the true Church to be. It will examine questions such as whether the Bible really calls us to “preach the gospel at all times, and if necessary, use words.” What does it really mean when Jesus said to do it to “the least of these?” Does a person become a true brother of Christ simply because he is poor, hungry, thirsty, sick, imprisoned or lacking adequate clothing? Is it possible to delude yourself into thinking that you are a faithful Christian by doing what you believe are “good works” yet ignore what Jesus has actually commanded you to do? Who gets the glory when good deeds are performed, but the Cross is not proclaimed? Is it possible that many in the church are really modern-day Pharisees who are content to clothe themselves with religious appearances when in reality they are simply “…holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; avoid such men as these.” (2 Timothy 3:5) You are alive today so you still have time to engage in the true Great Commission and finish strong. Let us get started!
