Anonymous asked: Same person who asked about going to church/homosexuality. I understand what you're saying, regarding the whole "you're right where you need to be, being in church". So, my next question... I know I shouldn't care about what other people are thinking, and being Christians, they shouldn't be judging in the first place. But, does that give off the wrong image, me going to church, not intending on changing? Is that offensive to God? I may not be Christian anymore, but I still want to be respectful.
“But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away. Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” - 2 Corinthians 3:14-17
Whenever satan has or gets the opportunity to tempt us to the point of sinning, He will take that chance in less then a heartbeat and since satan is the father of lies (John 8:44) he has deceived many people. Satan covers the truth with a spiritual veil over the eyes of many people and the only one who can take off that spiritual veil is God (if you believe) . When God takes this veil off this is when and only when we will want to change our ways and God will help us do it.
“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” - John 8:32
“Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.” - Hebrews 12:14
“This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 5: 14-20
