God's Sword of Truth - The Word

Sports of the World

~ ENTERTAINMENT OF THE WORLD ~

By The Holy Spirit's Disciple, Raymond Laginess

This article is "more salt". I take writing this and all the many other articles in the past very seriously. I have a burden to warn souls to be as Christ told us in Matt. 5:13, "ye are the salt of the earth", we are also the light. See Mark 9:50, Luke 14:34, Col. 4:6. May the Lords will be done. I’m not a writer, but the Holy Spirit has shown me so much and I must write and warn, then so be it. There’s not much time left and I must do it while there is still time.

When the Holy Spirit writes, "love not the world nor the things of it, and if you do the love of the Father is not in you"...I John 2:15. There are many warnings about worldliness. Keep in mind, these writings and warnings of the Holy Spirit are very strong and weighty. See Matt. 16:26, Luke 21:34, Romans 12:2, Col. 3:2, Titus 2:12, James 4:4, and I quote from this, "friendship of the world, is enmity with God, whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God"..I John 2:15.

Take heed, perilous times are upon us now and it is the beginning of sorrow. Those of the world, Satan’s subjects, are now trying to destroy the truth of The Word. They are trying to place man into a false security with many false tales of life hereafter. Follow not after the world and it’s heathenish practices of false religions who teach false worship to the world and its ways, as well as its governments, its flags and patriotism, not of heaven but of the earth and its fleshly ways. Many are entangled with the affairs of this life. They keep customs and traditions. They know more about movies, movie stars, sports and their players, than the Word of the Lord.

Now, to the meat of this article. It will cut and divide the world and its false teachings of life and worship of the flesh. Who are these worldly builders? They are the ones who glorify life, the flesh, and the world. Many of these people think they are doing God's work and are good people, even go to church every day acting very religious, but the truth is they do not know the real Christ nor His Spirit. They are self-righteous in their own eyes!

Who are some of these people? They are the topic of this article - they are movies stars, actors, film writers, all those involved in any way of film making, truth or fiction. A true Christian lives one life for Christ, and is hated by the world, and is not an actor of many lives of the world. He is salt to it, and does not act out lives of sin and the flesh whether they are good or bad. You can not make a living from it, you are not to be a bad example to your fellow man, you must be spiritual in all your ways. You are responsible for all your acts in the flesh. Your life cannot be an image or likeness to any flesh or the world or be a part of anyone’s life that reflects the same. You are not to entertain the flesh in any form. The flesh must die every day for Christ to be a real Christian.

You cannot play sports, be a part of the sports world and be Christian. The gladiators killed Christians in the coliseums, now the players kill each other in coliseums or arenas to entertain the people. They have built in customs and traditions of their hero’s or players, they keep records, facts, etc., a form of fleshly idolatry and it is forbidden and a warning to the spiritual walk in Christ. Live and do as Christ did on the earth. If you do, you will be hated by the Word, you can not be a hero to the flesh, you can not be a well known person of the flesh, if you are you have lost your salt and you are a bad example. As Christians, we are responsible for our acts. We shall give an account as to how our lives effect our neighbor. Each one will be accountable for their stewardship in life. We will give account of every idle word and our fruit will be tested.

If you belong to the Lord you must live and die for Him every day. You must have your priorities in order if you are Christs. Remember, He was hated by the world and killed for His witness. Can you do the same? Are you ready for that? One good test for being a real Christian is, does the world hate you? Are you ready to suffer and die for Him?

Get out of every activity that entertains the world, the flesh and the devil. Be a good steward, keep that which is committed to your trust. Do not be an entertainer in any form to the world or flesh, be ye salt, rebuke, exhort and warn them of sin. The lost souls of the world need salt, (if you care) someone needs to reach them with the truth as I do. Will you help me and the Holy Spirit who is our guide in this matter?

If you ask, who am I to judge all these things? I say to you, I am a righteous man by the Holy Spirit who taught me. See I Col. 2:14-15. I do it in love to warn souls for Christ who saved them. I am a minister and teacher of the Word. I am His steward. I asked and was shown things by the Holy Spirit that most men will never see. You shall know me by my fruit. What I write is not after me, I am not the author, but I know where it comes from and the Word and I are one. Jesus knows me and so does the devil. Who knows you?
