I Was Born That Way

Today’s Update: I Was Born That Way

Whether it is addiction, homosexuality, or gender-identity confusion – culture seems to want to chalk up blame to a person’s natural bend that has been present since birth.

Truth is: We are all born that way! We all have inclinations of the flesh which are evident in our own sin pattern. “Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these” (Gal 5:19-21). Sin is no respecter of persons. Every single one of us is a born sinner.
For some it may be gluttony, for others it may be lying or alcohol addiction or homosexuality. Has it been there since birth? Were they born that way? I’m sure I don’t know. But what God calls sin is sin. If we have inclinations of…

  1. Hi miss Sherry.

    Ain’t you thankful to be out of pentecostalism?

    My wife Melissa used to be pentecostal too, and God had to work on her for a long time to get that brainwashing of false religion out of her head.
    But when He quickened His true grace in her spirit, there was no going back to the religion of darkness for her.

    I’d love to hear your testimony of coming out of that thing. 🙂

    • I sure am! But one thing it did for me was make me more discerning. I see the lack of it among Christians and its saddens me because it always leans towards Hinduism/New Age.

      Like Melissa, I had a hard time dealing with the truths being shown to me. My church split (and it eventually became abandoned and haunted looking as we who left observed-it burned down to the ground earlier this year) and I had a great fear that I would eventually abandon the faith. The reason I love Spurgeon so is because I found his devotionals on the web and followed him for uplifting and edifying Spirit inspired interpretations of the Word of God-not that I agree with everything but I take in consideration the times he lived in. Mostly, he encouraged me in the faith until I could find another church. That led to a Calvary Chapel type church which did expository teachings on every book of the Bible with a pastor who taught me about discernment. Unfortunately things didn’t work out for us, we left and the small fledgling church closed. In the meantime, I found a website of a little known Bible teacher who explained scriptures with scriptures and showed me the teaching flaws of Beth Moore and Joyce Meyer. May I say this: if false teaching enters a church it most likely comes through Ladies Ministries and Prayer Conferences. We need to have Discernment Ministries within our churches that will be Bereans for every teaching/belief entering in it. We even have to be discerning of online discernment ministries… Anyhoo, I was convicted by this man concerning the Christ Mass, too. He was very thorough with scriptures answering to scriptures. I was very happy to get rid of all of that pagan/papist/traditions of men “holy” garbage! It was hard to do but God helped me (it was my favorite holiday and I did crafts for decor year round-we had 3 trees full! I truly believed I was honoring our Beloved Savior). This is the reason why I can’t find a church-they celebrate Xmas and Easter and if they can twist scriptures and make Paul OK with christianizing these pagan feasts then what else are they interpreting wrong? 8 years in the Pentecostal faith taught me to fear the wrong path. God doesn’t compromise with evil and I don’t want to deliberately do it. I have discovered the truth that with each step of obedience I am blessed more and more, especially as I study His Word-I have a greater understanding of it. Also, I know His presence and His Spirit’s infilling me with songs of praise and worship and with an attitude of gratitude, all of the time, amen! \o/ That’s my testimony, precious brother.

      How are you doing health-wise?

      • Thank you so much for expressing your testimony with me sister!

        I enjoyed reading it very much!

        I especially found interesting your thought about women’s ministries being a conduit for destructive heresies. I hadn’t heard that before, but it makes perfect sense to me.

        I finally found a church, and I’m so grateful. Because I was wearing of being a lone ranger Christian with no local fellowship.
        I definitely don’t agree with everything they teach, but God has matured me enough that I’m solid where I stand.

        My health is good.
        It’s fun being one-eyed, as it gives me a unique opportunity to share the joy that’s thriving inside of me.

        I’m a hicked-out, one-eyed cyclopse who’s thrilled about having been made the righteousness of God 😀👍

  2. LOL! Yer so funny!

    Yeah, we should never look for a church that perfectly matches all of our beliefs because we won’t know all there is about our Beloved and His ways this side of eternity.

    God bless you!
