The Authority of the Church

One of the things that should be dear to our hearts, is the church we attend. For this discussion, the “religious church” will mean any church, of any kind, anywhere in the world. The “Christian church” meaning, “the born-again family of God through Jesus Christ” will be Radical Christians who have a strong spiritual relationship with God.

This is a distinction that the religious Christian church is afraid to reveal. The average Christian who has no absolutely sure spiritual relationship with God the Father of Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit and according to His written Word is still a religious believer. They are still born again children of God, but without a relationship with their spiritual Father. Their relationship is emotional, physical, and mental. But, as God is a spiritual entity and cannot communicate to the physical believer without Holy Spirit, and very few believers know how God communicates to them due to lack of instruction and exposure, the average believer is simply unsure, or unaware of the quality of their spiritual relationship with God. They simply don’t know, but they are secure in their relationship with their church and fully believe in that relationship for their salvation.

The radical left that has rejected church and God has noticed this spiritual disconnection about religious Christianity throughout the 20th Century. Alice Bailey’s ninth point in her “10-Point Charter to Overthrow Nations” is “Promote other faiths to be at par with Christianity, and break this thing about Christianity as being the only way to heaven, by that Christianity will be pulled down and other faiths promoted.” as long as religious Christianity is the standard for all Christianity, her ninth point is true and there really is no difference between Christianity and every other faith in the world. But there is only one problem with her Charter.

It elevates worldly spirituality, (which is devilish and looks forward to the Anti-Christ), at the expense of Judeo/Christian spirituality, (based on the expectation of the Messiah from the true God).

This is a subtle deception that has weakened the distinction between Christianity and all other religions on earth. Radical Liberals have blamed this distinction as the reason for wars and the evils of religious zealots in the world. So in response, they have worked to water down this distinction in every church. The Gospel of Jesus has changed from repentance from sin, redemption from Satan, reception of the Holy Spirit, and restoration to God to love your neighbor, love your planet, and love god. The god today is any god of love, (no different from the world), the power today is love, (no different from the world), and the reward today is prosperity, (no different from the world.) If the religious Christian gospel today has no defining distinction from the gospel of the world, then Christian religion has become worldly and follows the pattern of the world.

This is only part of the revelation of the apostasy of the Christian church today. It had integrated itself into the power structure of the world, then lost that power over time. Now, the church is searching for relevance with a love and service to mankind gospel. Unfortunately, brotherly love and compassionate service to your fellow man can be accomplished easier without religion in the mix. In fact, there are more non-profits now that do the same acts of compassionate humanity without God in the message. Many of them are financed by the profits of large corporations and liberal philanthropists. The church is becoming an invisible and culturally ignored entity because its message is no different from the world. Atheists can truthfully say, “I don’t need God to be loving.”

In an effort to be relevant in their followers lives, the religious church has replaced its former authority of both governing and ministering to ecclesiastical, administrative control alone. The religious church gives its followers a false sense of “spiritual” acceptability with its leadership. Without developing or teaching how to maintain a true spiritual relationship with God the Father Almighty, religious faith in the church has replaced true faith in God.

Radical Christianity refutes the ninth point of Alice Bailey’s 10-Point Charter. We know that God is not only living and real, but that our God is decidedly different from the god of the world. There is no comparison. The god of the world that brings a gospel of love and enlightenment of the spiritual hierarchy is not the God and Father of Jesus Christ who made spiritual wholeness available through salvation. Our wholeness by the Holy Spirit is not a hierarchy through which we progress through advancing levels of spiritual knowledge and continuous apprenticeship. Our wholeness is complete at the moment of salvation.

Colossians 2: 10 “And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:”

Our faith in God grows over time as we learn to recognize God’s voice and obey His revelation in our personal heart and life.

1 Corinthians 2: 5 “That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”

It is the power of God at work in the Radical Christian’s life that makes God’s love and God’s power activated and real. This is what built the church in the first century.

Acts 16: 5 “And so were the churches established in the faith, and increased in number daily.”

Radical liberals are working hard to institute a hierarchy of devilish control into every area of our lives. The religious church has adopted the hierarchy structure of the world and expects its followers to maintain their faith in that structure. Liberals have succeeded in their efforts to infiltrate and inject their devilish structure into Christian church life. Christians need to make a genuine repentance from trusting the worldly structure of hierarchy in every way, to trust the revelation of God in their life, if they hope to make any impact in our culture. It took the faith of God and the power of the Holy Spirit to build the church in the first century, why are we so reliant on the logic of the flesh today?

Galatians 3: 2 “This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?”

Radical Christian faith rests on God through the Holy Spirit. This Holy Spirit comes when we confess Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and believe God raised Jesus from the dead. (Romans 10: 9, 10) Our religion is not based upon the hierarchy of the world in our churches, but in our relationship with our spiritual Father, God Almighty. It is this distinct and vital difference that makes us hated by the principalities and powers of the world. These principalities and powers are spiritual and devilish. Our battle is also spiritual and our commander is Jesus Christ. He has fully equipped us for success in our battles, but our battles are spiritual, not physical against men.

If you want to learn how to build and activate your faith in God to actively win your spiritual battles against the principalities and powers of the world, get this book below. It was written after a lifetime of searching out the answer to a simple question: Why are the gods of devilish religions so openly powerful today and the God and Father of Jesus Christ so powerless, when the Word shows He is greater and more powerful than any other god? The book answers this question by showing how we lost the God of Power in Christian religion, and how we can bring Him back into our lives individually, and back into our culture collectively.

I am a retired full time power plant mechanic. I am also a Radical Christian follower of God with 48 years of volunteer ministry service and training. I hold a degree as an Associate of Biblical Theology, and a Bachelor of Practical Ministry. I have volunteer experience as an Evangelist, property manager, set builder, stage electrician, musician, singer, conference security, food service distribution manager, and a former associate pastor for New Revelation Christian Development Center in Smyrna, TN. I am the founder of Power House Institute and Ministry and the author of Rules for Radical Christians: A Practical Primer for Defeating Radical Liberals at Their Own Game. I believe every born again Christian has the ability interact with God Almighty by way of His Holy Spirit and this is Radical Christianity. It is my mission to encourage and empower spiritual greatness in every Christian believer, no matter which brand of Christianity they choose to follow. By doing so, change the world around us, and the culture we live within. I believe Radical Christians are part of every Christian church in the world. If we want to restore morality, Radical Christians are the only answer for recovery. I want my book and this blog become a powerful and winning influence against Atheist liberalism. We can restore our culture through the combined power and influence of God at work in the lives of Radical Christians everywhere.

    1. Sorry for being so late with a reply. Thank you for your comment and I hope you enjoy more of my posts. We may not always agree on the details of our beliefs since I don’t know your denomination, but I know we can always agree that our church leadership is doing the best they can with what they know. We simply need to keep God first in our lives and He will always fill in gaps as we are fearless in studying the Word and application of the Holy Spirit in our lives. I’m keeping you and your family in my prayers during this Covid crisis and hope all is well with you.
