The Hypocrisy Of Faith
We've heard that titles don't matter and a piece of paper doesn't matter in regards to marriage. If titles didn't matter, then it wouldn't matter in the military because everyone would be equal. It wouldn't matter at jobs, so what would be the point of a 25 year seasoned manager in comparison to a new fry cook who knows absolutely nothing about even cooking fries.
If titles didn't matter, then mankind wouldn't put so much trust in Doctors and lawyers. If a piece of paper didn't matter, then why is there so much emphasis on getting a check or chasing a piece of paper with dead Presidents on it? We put so much emphasis on titles, degrees, etc to exalt ourselves and mankind as a whole, not because the titles or degrees actually stand for something righteous in the eyes of God. We hide behind titles and manmade pieces of paper to boast in ourselves towards God and as a covering for our sin. When we have these titles we seemingly shine bright in the hearts of mankind, but dark in the heart of God. Our titles and paper have become sin to God. Titles have become our righteous or a piece of our self righteousness that we dare present before The Righteous One, The Lord Jesus Christ.
But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
Isaiah 64:6 KJV
Let me not, I pray you, accept any man's person, neither let me give flattering titles unto man. For I know not to give flattering titles; in so doing my maker would soon take me away.
Job 32:21-22 KJV
Man can give titles, but they do not last. They do not last, because God has not established them, who is eternal. Man has taken God given titles and applied them to himself without the authority of God. Anything else is vanity, which means vain titles and pieces of paper that breed more vanity, leading to death in vanity and not death leading to life.
Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
Psalms 127:1 KJV
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
1 Corinthians 3:16-17 KJV
We build these great houses up with great titles and stuff them with paper in the form of great furniture, beautiful architecture, brilliant lighting, which we have obtained with our great titles that give us more paper to buy things and fill our temple with. But these things were already in our temple as thoughts, not yet physically manifested. The problem isn't the furniture in our temples, because even God's temple has extravagant furniture. The problem is the motive behind it. For mankind...vain glory...not righteous glory.
Since the Lord did not build these houses in him, they come crumbling down when the storm hits, for the storm hit not only the house built on sand, but the house built on the rock. The storm hit both homes, yet only those with a solid foundation, not founded on vain belief stood.
And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
Luke 6:46-49 KJV
And why call me Lord, Lord?...Lord is a title, meaning master. Abraham was called lord by his wife.
Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my Lord being old also?
Genesis 18:12 KJV
Even Satan himself is a lord, a master, one of many titles he holds. What is the difference between Jesus, Abraham, and Satan, besides the fact that Christ is Lord of Lords though? Christ told us the difference. They did what was associated with the title in righteousness, in comparison to holding the title and bringing forth fruit in vanity, puffing oneself up above God and even higher than what a person actually is.
People speak, yet they don't realize how hypocritical they are when they do speak. Billions of people mock those of us who are believers in the holy scriptures, the KJV, for having faith in the bible they claim was solely written by man with no inspiration or authority from God. Some even claim it was given to us by the white man. While they make these accusations like they are facts proven in a court of law, they themselves have faith in the monetary system, faith in a piece of paper with words on it PRINTED BY MAN.
These men are white who established and still control today's monetary system. So is it not hypocritical to mock us for having faith in scriptures they claim were given to us by the white man, while they boast about their faith in the all mighty dollar given out by the white man like it's the word of God? And if so how great is that hypocrisy?
It's not singularly about the titles, pieces of paper, etc. It's about what and who backing them. The powers behind the people who make the money, degrees, books, make the paper money and everything else powerful. The power behind the word of God makes the word of God powerful, because he himself is powerful whom spoke the words from within himself.
I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.
Psalms 138:2 KJV
God has given names and titles. Names hold meaning and power. We see this all throughout the scriptures and we only have to look as far as Jesus Christ to see this. If we need to look a little further, then we only have to look at our own names. Titles are all throughout the scriptures. We see it in the body of Christ, established and given by God for the edification of the body of Christ. These titles/positions hold power, dignity, honor, respect, and order.
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
Ephesians 4:11-12 KJV
When we see someone with the title apostle, prophet, or pastor we understand that these are powerful positions in the government of God. Even when a false prophet holds these titles it holds power.
People claim that titles and pieces of paper don't matter, because they ultimately have no respect for the government of God. The term and name God is a title that holds power. His word, written on a piece of paper, stone, in men's hearts, or wherever he chooses to write it, however he chooses to write it, and whomever he chooses to write it holds authority, because it is backed by himself.
We live in a world that has more respect for wicked, dead white men on money, a piece of paper, than they do for God Almighty and his word written on paper, neither of whom they've ever seen...talk about blind faith huh...
