5 Words A Christian Should Never Say

There are a lot of issues facing us as Christians today. Same-sex marriage, the transgender movement, abortion, feminism, subjection of the wife to the husband…  and so much more. I have a Biblical stance on all of these issues but my purpose in writing today is to point out 5 words a Christian should never say and why they should not say them. I have heard them tossed around by those who are not Christians but my shock and surprise are to hear these words spoken by people who claim to be Christians. Are you ready to read the words? Here goes:

Did you know there are five words a Christian should never say? If you are saying these words you are committing heresy. Join me as I talk about this important subject.

 

“Jesus Did Not talk About…

 

Homosexuality, transgender, abortion…Ok. I said I was not going to talk about the issues and I am not. I am using these issues as examples. Those who are trying to defend a position on a specific issue will grasp at straws to defend it. When you say these five words, “Jesus Did Not Talk About,”  you are a heretic.  You may be asking, what is a heretic? A heretic is a person holding an opinion at odds with what the Bible teaches. How can I say this? Well because the word of God does. 2 Peter 2:1 teaches, ” But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.

As a believer, our responsibility is to stand on and obey the word of God. The Bible which is inherent and all-sufficient is our standard of teaching. It is sufficient because it is all we need to teach us about God, how we are to live, and what we are to believe.

To say Jesus did not talk about homosexuality or abortion or whatever the issue is to say that He is not God. And to say He is not God is to deny what the Scriptures teach and to bring destructions upon ourselves. So, I am speaking to those of us who make a claim to Christianity. If you have ever uttered  those words or know someone who has keep reading. I am going to give Scripture references that teach us that Jesus is God and that anything God said Jesus said.

Jesus Is God: Jesus is Part of the Godhead

When we baptize someone we baptize them by saying, ” I baptize you in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Matthew 28:19. When we say this we are agreeing with the Scriptures that Jesus is a part of the Godhead. We cannot take Jesus out of the Godhead. If we do we are heretics and are bringing judgment upon ourselves. Here are just a few verses that speak concerning this truth.

John 1:1-3 teaches, ” In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the Word was God.

Genesis 1:26~” Then God said, ” Let Us make man in our image, according to Our likeness:”

John 10:30~” I and the Father are One.”

1 Peter 1:1~” who are chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father by the sanctifying work of the Spirit, to obey Jesus Christ and be sprinkled with His blood;”

John 20:28~” Thomas answered Him and said, ‘My Lord and my God.”

John 17:11~” I am no longer in the  world and yet they themselves are in the world, and I come to You, Holy Father, keep them in Your name, the name which You have given Me, that they may be one even as We are.”

John 17:21~” that they may all be one; even as You Father are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us so that the world may believe that You sent Me.”

There is One God but three distinct persons of the Godhead. That is what the verses above are teaching. There is one more verse that I am going to write down that I believe should sum up this whole argument.

“Therefore Jesus answered and was saying to them, “Truly, Truly, I say unto you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in like manner.”

Jesus and God are in unity with one another. What the One Says or does the Other is in agreement. All Scripture is inspired by God. All Scripture includes the Old and the New Testaments. When God spoke against, for example, homosexuality in the Old Testament, Jesus spoke against it too.  The argument that “Jesus Did Not Speak About… ” does not stand.

There may be a time when you are using Scripture to refute one of the issues of our day and someone may say to you, “Jesus Did Not Speak about… now you have some Scriptures that teach other wise!

    I never would have thought of “Jesus did not say…” in this way, but you are right. When we separate Christ’s words from the rest of God’s Word, we’re essentially supporting the idea that Christ isn’t fully God. It always breaks my heart to hear people use this phrase, but I didn’t really think through the whole issue of WHY it bothered me so much (aside from recognizing that the person saying it was trying to get around what the Bible actually teaches). Much to ponder!

      It is so easy to get caught up in the catch phrases of the day and not even realize what you are saying much less what others are saying. It breaks my heart to hear people say these things as well. Praising God that although we may not know at the time what is being said is against God, we do have the Holy Spirit in us alerting us.This is the time when we should stop pray and ponder the prompting of the Holy Spirit. I am thankful that God has opened your ears today! God bless and thank you so much for sharing:)

    Thank you for posting such a beautiful truth! We are going through BEHOLD YOUR GOD and reading through A.W.Tozer,it’s easy to see this truth.The modern Gospel is completely watered down so much that so many Christians miss this truth.Whatever God says,Jesus has said it,as well.Thank you for posting this! I will be sharing this with EVERYONE I know!!!

      Tammy, I have seen “Behold Our God” but have not studied it. I am thinking and praying about it. Yes, the gospel is watered down so much and people do not see the truths that they need to see.This also lets us know how much we need to be in the word of God for ourselves. We are held as accountable as those watering down the gospel! Thank you for our encouraging words and thank you for sharing with others! God Bless!

    I liked this and thought the verse u listed:
    “Therefore Jesus answered and was saying to them, “Truly, Truly, I say unto you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in like manner.”
    …is such a great, irrefutable one, to tell someone who is trying to use the argument that “JESUS did not speak on that subject!” Do believe could be used on many, if not all of, those types of arguments?! Thank u for that verse & that wise perspective!
    One thing…I know how/where to look it up & to find out which verse that is from in the Bible (although admit idk by ?…have hard time memorizing the “where’s not the “what’s”, but I know that there are lots who may not know how to find what verses are where in the Word…didn’t have the verse listed and think that’d be a great thing to have…I’m sure u probably usually do, but just thought would mention since this is the 1st time that I read your blog! I found u on Pinterest?
    Thank you for your service to Him through your great Blog! Enjoying!
    In Jesus Christ our Lord, God & Savior~
