Christianity without love for the brethren

I will be describing the precepts of this emergent doctrine in a future post as “amoral egoistic Christianity”. It is a reaction to radical nonjudgmentalism in the Western church, which is a false doctrine from JudeoChristianity that has infected the American evangelical movement. If all goes well I will be dissecting radical nonjudgmentalism tomorrow, and then amoral egoistic Christianity on Saturday.

For now, I’ll illustrate the truth against which these false doctrines ought to be judged.

Where in the bible are we instructed to love God’s church?
I seem to recall Jesus instructed us to love God, and to love our neighbours.

He tore down a shitty temple you may recall, and started a new church. We should try the same.

We no longer have a church that Jehovah desires, very few churches instruct women to be silent, to cover their hair, and so few preach the law. Yet so many churches place women in leadership, even as pastors. Loving those places is satanic.

glosoli on The West is dead, and God has killed it

You may think this is a silly question, but keep in mind this is the version of Christianity that Generation Z is inheriting, absent institutions to transmit the cultural memes. glosoli’s advocacy thus far has been entirely logical, if you start from the premise that self-sacrificial brother-love is not commanded by Jesus. I’ve provided him with three hypothetical scenarios, one of which was over Skype, and in all three he sentenced every single person in all three stories to death. And if you take away the expression of sacrificial love as exemplified by Christ, this is the correct answer! The Law condemns us all to death—its very purpose was to convict.

Christianity without brother-love is the most monstrous ideology ever conceived by humanity, as judged against an impressive pantheon of monstrous ideologies, and will spell the end of the Western church if we don’t stop it (but that’s another post). I want you to imagine a scenario where glosoli, or a group of men who similarly believe that not a single Western congregation deserves to survive, takes power and begins to implement their program. Imagine an entire generation whose capacity for charity has been surgically removed by socialism’s weaponized empathy taking the role of the Accuser, all in the name of Christianity, persecuting the church and believing they’re doing God’s will.

First, I have to prove what I’ve been implying for the last week or so: that Jesus instructed Christians to love the church. This will be review for many of you, so I hope you’ll forgive me for being boring because this is absolutely necessary. I’ll demonstrate that he said to love something, then prove this is the church by the law of transitivity.

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. (John 13:34-35).

He repeats this command a couple of times.

This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you. (John 15:12).

This I command you, that you love one another. (John 15:17).

It’s clear that Jesus commands his disciples to love one another. The apostle John also reminds us of this after the fact:

He has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister (1 John 4:21)

What is the church?

Many people today understand the church as a building. This is not a biblical understanding of the church. The word “church” comes from the Greek word ekklesia which is defined as “an assembly” or “called-out ones.” The root meaning of “church” is not that of a building, but of people. It is ironic that when you ask people what church they attend, they usually identify a building. Romans 16:5 says “… greet the church that is in their house.” Paul refers to the church in their house—not a church building, but a body of believers.

The church is the body of Christ, of which He is the head. Ephesians 1:22-23 says, “And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.” The body of Christ is made up of all believers in Jesus Christ from the day of Pentecost (Acts chapter 2) until Christ’s return.

Therefore “the church” = “disciples of Jesus”. Even the word “Christian” means “Jesus follower”.

What is a Christian? The Biblical Definition
Since the Bible is the authority for the Christian faith, let’s see what it says about the word “Christian.” The word is only used 3 times in the New Testament and each instance is referring to the first “Christians” of the early church.

“…So for a whole year Barnabas and Saul met with the church and taught great numbers of people. The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch” (Acts 11:26).

“Then Agrippa said to Paul, ‘Do you think that in such a short time you can persuade me to be a Christian?’” (Acts 26:28).

“However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name” (1 Peter 4:16).

They were called “Christians” because their behavior, activity, and speech were like Christ Jesus. The word Christian means, “follower of Christ” or “belonging to the party of Christ.” So, what made them part of this group called “Christians.”

The Bible says that good works do not make us acceptable to God. In other words, a person can live to a high moral standard, give money to feed the poor, go to church, and serve their neighbors, and yet not be a Christ follower or “Christian.”

What is a Christian?

Thus we could argue about who is or is not a TRUE disciple of Christ (i.e. who is actually in the church), but we cannot logically argue that Jesus did not instruct the church brethren to love one another. You must love the church, or else break Jesus’ direct instruction.

    KILL THEM ALL, and let Got sort em out!

    It’s what Jesus would have wanted?

    Wait a second…

      It is what Jesus wants at his second coming. Jumping the gun steals God’s vengeance.

      Ironically, this attitude may cause God to extend mercy to those we think deserve none.

      “Do not gloat when your enemy falls; when they stumble, do not let your heart rejoice, or the LORD will see and disapprove and turn his wrath away from them.”

      Why? I think this verse reflects how much God’s cares about our feelings towards others, and not rewarding the wrong thoughts and feelings in us.

      That is, God refrains from punishing wickedness because we would get the wrong idea.

      This could be part of why God’s people suffer first – it corrects our mindset so that the suffering that everyone else subsequently suffers is understood in the right context. Revelations will see unprecedented suffering of God’s people, followed by unprecedented suffering on all people and God’s final judgement.

    Let me see if I can Intellectual Turing Test your opponent here.

    The Church relates to Christ as a bride to the bridegroom. His role is to be charitable toward her weakness, but not to abide unfaithfulness. (The Father put up with enough of that from the Israelites throughout their entire history until they got their shit together enough to produce Mary.)

    The members of the Church are to her as organelles to a cell. They depend on her and their activities contribute to her life, but they’re incapable of “loving” her in the sense in which Christ does. They also can’t judge her as Christ does, from his position of superior, independent authority.

    But an organelle can and must flee from a sick cell and migrate to a well one. Almost any weakness in the Church (not in individual humans) can be forgiven except unfaithfulness, is I think the clear lesson throughout the OT. (More wiggle room in the NT, e.g. Peter? But he’s not the Church, he’s one guy.) So an organelle that perceives apoptosis occurring in the cell it inhabits accomplishes less than nothing by hanging around trying to love the other organelles of that dying cell. It should go and practice sacrificial love among the organelles of some other cell that isn’t cut off by unfaithfulness from the source of its life.

    Love is love, just like islam is the religion of peace, all submit to god = no strife = peace. The written word is a poor vessel for precise meaning, which is why the melons ran their pyramid society and social pyramid schemes on memes. A doodled dick on a wall will outlive many cultures and words.
    Iconography ftw!

    If you love someone you gotta whip em into shape, just like Jesus did with the penny-pinchers. Teache someone = love someone. “Do whatever you want that makes you happy I love you son” –> “why did my son die of an overdose after becoming a transvestitie i loved him i love you son damn you god to hell”. I look forward to more Etymology poats, but we all know what Jesus didn’t mean i.e recreate hell on earth by breaking ten simple rules.

    However, in this day and dage, the word “love” is a nuclear cluster bomb detonating the west day by day, it should make on weary as all hell just saying. Inversion the oldest trick in the book.

    “It’s what Jesus would have wanted?” – You bag ´em i´ll tag ´em! god to jesus <— isn't this the short version of revelations?

    If we look at words, the underlying white predisposition of autistic altruism, inclusiveness in the name of community and/or commerce (i am a globalist and a nationalist, i am a national socialist and a social nationalist), then gay pride parties in the name of God or Allah is not that big of a jump. But What level of holy hellerism should a place endure before it becomes a travesty, kinda like school is ruined for the kids who want to learn by the retarded who by means of magical egalitarian thinking becomes the brainy kid by being in his vicinity but ends up creating another stunted brainlet via thuggery and short attention spans?

    America was literally founded by people who hated the church of its times, im not sure those very churces are better in our times, the irony of a lot of people brought together because they hate the church for many good reasons yet the church itself is not one of them, that is not the issue here.
    Don't you yanks have gallows humor?

    TLDR men can't run churches, kingdom of heaven is literally run by God himself hence the disconnect error IMO. Just like athetists can't stop talking about god it brings people together because it just does pick the one you like let the trannies and globohomos duke it out in the church of satan.All is well.

    There’s a serious lack of self-awareness behind this kind of fire-and-brimstone Christianity. Is there a word to describe someone who lacks self-awareness and has great difficulty forming relationships?

    • bicebicebcie says:

      Yes, the thard watchman ringing the doomsday alarm with primitive images of “bad” such as fire, ice and hell on earth by imposterous virtuous conduct aka krisshianity.

      Conceited is a normie term, it holds no meaning here. This is Edentown.

  5. everlastingphelps says:

    It’s not hard to figure out, people. Are you of the faith? Then eat of this bread and drink of this cup and you are my brother.

    Get tribal, motherfuckers. If you are a tribe of one, you’re not in my tribe.
