An Email From Someone Who Cares


ask1.jpg

Dear bro. Eli,


Good day.

I am happy see this site attached by a friend in an e-mail.
I would like to ask you the following questions:

1. My husband is working as a dealer in a casino; is it ok or do you have any advice on the matter?
2. Do you have policies if you become a member of the congregation? (Please correct me if I’m wrong.
3. Do you form organizations that would help street-children, and others?

Thank you for reading and I really am looking forward to meet you in person.

God bless us all.

Lovely

 

Dear Lovely,

If you will find an organization without any ‘inner policies’ or having policies, but are not implemented, such an organization is not of God.

In the Church of God, it is a doctrine that everything being done inside the Church must be done decently and in order.

(1 Corinthians 14:40) “Let all things be done decently and in order.”

There are sanctions for those who will not follow this policy of doing things in order.

(2 Thessalonians 3:6-8) “Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us. For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you; Neither did we eat any man’s bread for naught; but wrought with labor and travail night and day, that we might not be chargable to any of you…”

And if anyone in the Church will blatantly disobey the rules and order wanted by God to be observed, excommunication follows ,after the first and second admonition.

(Titus 3:10) “A man that is a heretic after the first and second admonition reject…”

Who are those to be excommunicated?

(1 Corinthians 5:11-13) “But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such a one no not to eat. For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.”

We must not physically harm anyone who does not want to follow the teachings of Christ as what the Catholic Church has done. They murdered alleged heretics, (which I believe are not heretics) who do not want to accept their erroneous teachings. If the RCC is the true church, they should have excommunicated them; but I am sorry to hear that defenders of the Catholic faith even justify the criminal acts of their leaders.

What is disgusting is that these religions in our times do not excommunicate those enumerated by the Apostle Paul in the afore cited verses, but allow them of their misdeeds, thereby spoiling others and their entire flock as a whole.

(Romans 1:32) “Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”

To preserve the holiness of the Church, discipline must be followed. If a wrongdoer who does not wish to be renewed by following God’s word is not excommunicated, he will spoil the good conduct of other people in the Church.

(1 Corinthians 15:23) “Do not be deceived; evil companionships corrupt good habits.” MKJV

Considering this biblical wisdom, we must believe that in the true Church there are really policies to be followed.

One of the most important policies of the true Church of God is to extend help and care possible, for the less fortunate in society, and continue in piety or holiness.

(James 1:27) “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.”

The word translated ‘visit’ in the preceding verse is:

ἐπισκέπτομαι

episkeptomai

ep-ee-skep’-tom-ahee;

Middle voice from G1909 and the base of G4649; to inspect, that is, (by implication) to select; by extension to go to see, relieve: – look out, visit.

Strong’s Hebrew and Greek Dictionaries

Dictionaries of Hebrew and Greek Words taken from Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance by James Strong, S.T.D., LL.D., 1890.

ἐπισκέπτομαι

episkeptomai means to see and relieve, meaning to look forto help. This is one of the primary projects of the Church of God, International. In the Philippines, we maintain orphanages, home for the aged, hospital and clinics serving the needs of the less fortunate — FREE OF CHARGE!

(Matthew 10:7-8) “And as ye go, preach, saying, the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.”

Even spiritual services rendered to members and non-members of the Church are free ,like

baptism, marriage counseling, marriage ceremonies, Bible studies, and the likes.

I am happy to hear from people like you that have concern and care for others. There are not many people in the world now who cares! Have you heard the saying “who cares?” There are very few of them. And I thank God you are one of them.

Regarding your question about your husband, all I can say is it is an essence of the true religion in James 1:27 to “keep ourselves unspotted from the world.”

May God lead you to the path of righteousness you are long searching for.

 

God Bless!

  1. The way to eternal salvation is narrow and hard.

    “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.
    (Mat 7:13-14)

    But Jesus also said, that His yoke is easy and his burden is light.

    Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
    (Mat 11:28-30)

    If we believe in Christ and we stand firm in faith, though there are hardships and trials in this world, we will be able to surpass all of this.

    Thank you God for your words and may He continue to pour out his blessings and wisdom to you Bro. Eli.

    Glory to God!

  12. Dear Lovely,

    Even though your husband is not the one who gambles. He is an instrument in people to gamble.

    Romans 6:13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.

    We must be an instrument of righteousness of God not of sin.

  13. To Lovely and Zerepem:

    Huwag nang magpatumpik-tumpik pa…
    How we wish that everybody hears the word of God spoken by the ONLY SENSIBLE PREACHER OF OUR TIME.
