The ordination of godparents is not a biblical position, the church is charged with taking care of the widows and orphans although the work of godparents may seem a good thing, it, unfortunately, takes place around a stronghold that rob’s a soul from a relationship to God and dependence upon HIM.
What if the godparents are not godly at all? Religious things do not make one relational.
Very few realize that the godparents to the “Kardashians” are O.J. Simpson and the now deceased Nicole Brown Simpson, the devil is in the details. Give me “Duck Dynasty” any day and a church that is biblically sound.
Because someone makes a profession of faith in a church or was baptized in a particular denomination if they live in the world and for this world and are not “Born Again” or pursue a steady relationship with Jesus, they should not be trusted with your children’s souls when you pass, if you ever hope ever to see them again.
From wiki: As early as the 2nd century AD, infant baptism had begun to gain acceptance among Christians for the spiritual purification and social initiation of infants. The requirement for some confession of faith necessitated the use of adults who acted as sponsors for the child. They vocalized the confession of faith and acted as guarantors of the child’s spiritual upbringing.
Infant baptism was a creation by a priesthood that should not exist. Done primarily to solicit money and secure their spiritual hold over others. Christ took HIS people out of Egypt to establish HIS priesthood that provided laws for a society to live by and provided a means of temporary restitution should the laws be broken. God was telling us that to get into heaven we must obey the law. Christ frees us from the curse of the law not change the law. Break one law out of any of the ten then heaven would be shut from us entirely, we would be deemed lawbreakers, troublemakers and no better than the ones who rebelled in heaven and robbed it of its peace in the first place.
We are on trial we are being watched, while the knowledge of good and evil is being revealed to those who knew neither (Jeremiah 4:22).
They rejected the Son we must accept the Son. We are here because of their insistence on seeing HIM. To look upon the face of God one shall surely die, deep food for thought.
If HE can dry our tears, can HE also give reason to the angels to cry?
(3) And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
(4) And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
(5) And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
(6) And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
(7) He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
(8) But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
Christ ended the need for the Priesthood one of the reasons for creating HIS own to end what the devil had started in Babylon and carried into the rest of the world. What God did for man was to show both men and Angel alike that HIS love knows no bounds and the sacrifice of a perfect man was the only way to appease a Holy and just God. Man does not need to fear death any longer if his life is in Christ. We no longer need to fear men only God, Christ tells us how we can know God. Death is defeated when we place our trust in the risen Christ our eternal future secure.
The Catholic Church teaches that one can not claim eternal security for certainty to do so would be anathema keep in mind we are talking about a returned priesthood after the fact Jesus ended it. When the Spirit of God enters you, you do not need any other reminders other than breaking bread and drinking of wine to remember HIS covenant with us. As often as you do this, you acknowledge HIS new covenant 1 Corinthians 11:26.
The many voices of many men influencing the world calling that which is good evil.
Protestants who hold no priesthood or shouldn’t, dedicate their children requesting the community in aid of raising them up in the ways of God. It is a much more Biblical approach to raising a child. The benefits are should the parents die then the Church family would step up and instead of going to someone required to love them, who walks not with God like O.J. Simpson they can go to someone who could truly love them, should a family member not step up. If a family member does step up the body swore to help raise the child in the way of God, now it is possible to add a new family to the household of faith.
If O.J. had hidden the word of God in his heart and was born again of God’s spirit, then Nicole would still be alive, and the Kardashians wouldn’t have been discovered to tear down the nuclear family.
Infant baptism became a stronghold in my life. I was baptized at two years of age. When I was lost in the world, I fell back on the fact I had nothing to worry about I was baptized, and I was Catholic. Many times I thought to serve God I would have to become a priest in the manner I wanted to serve HIM. It is only through Christ Peter tells us we are fitted into the Royal Priesthood. What God wanted from Israel HE receives in Christ all of us Royal Priests unto HIM.
The Holy Spirit cannot be dictated too, HE looks into the heart of man and knows if
the repentance is genuine or not. He sees the man’s end and the purpose God has for him.
He leads us in all manner of truth and warns us of the dangers; God insists we hide the word in our heart as to not sin against HIM (the dangers). So we need to feed the new spirit given us when the in filling takes place. When God sends HIM, it may be right away for some and others a show of discipline on the new Christian’s part. You draw closer to HIM; HE promises to draw closer to you James 4:8. Your heart’s four chambers and HIS first four commandments add to the perfect eight.
To turn your back on the ways of the world you have known so long is mandatory to pursue the spiritual life in Christ. We are to seek the mature spiritual gifts of God which are to love even those who refuse to love you back by praying for their soul and revelation of God.
When I speak of maturity, it is not a pious resolve. The word says, when I was a child I acted and behaved as a child, but when I became a man, I put away childish things 1 Corinthians 13:11. Does the word contradict itself when it says we must become like children to enter into heaven Matthew 18:2-4? We must trust God with a child-like faith as we would -trust our own parents. To put away childish things is not to condemn my Dr. Zues in my last post. It is to stop claiming everything in the sandbox belongs to us. My oil, my gas, my gold, my land. Being part of the kingdom means to share and seek peaceful resolutions. How is it that the destroyed mythical gods of history have made their way back to the 21st century? Is the pit HE warned us HE would open, been opened where they were held in chains? A sign of immaturity and spiritual ignorance bringing back the bondages of the past to serve a false god is to ensure one’s eternal torment.
To support a priesthood today is to deny the finished work of Christ. It is akin to saying he did not come in the flesh and HE is not the Son of God. Away from me I never knew you!
For many will come and say, “Did we not do this in your name.”
I have been tried and found NOT GUILTY as a bonus I found what HIS enemy was hiding in Egypt and attest HIS honor is priceless! What say you?
