Do not deceive yourself, there is no room for worldliness in heaven
Most christians have no problems repenting and confessing their sins. Some christians even confess their sins publicly. However, the most difficult thing
about modern christians today is how to repent and overcome worldiness. Worldliness is any acts, dressing, behaviour or practises that glorify the world or appears to glorify the world.
Worldliness is spiritual leprosy, its starts in one place and spread from person to person
Women have more problems overcoming worldliness than men because they are weaker vessels and easily deceived by the devil. However, worldliness is a great sin before the Lord and is the most important reason why christians
go to hell fire today.
James 4: 4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. 5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?
Most modern christians are worldly and that include top pastors who turn away from the word of God to human reasonning and have been deceived by satan. Many children of God also thought that manifestation of miracles, signs and wonders or speaking in tongues is an indication of God's acceptance of their worldly lives. Unfotunately, the bible has not changed and will never change. The bible warnings about worldliness is clear and we can see some examples here:
1. Worldliness in Dressing
Dressing like the world is common among christians. Christians have perfected the acts of worldliness in dressing and because they do not want to repent they justify themselves and comfort themselves with the number of top mordern pastors wearing worldly attitre. Such abominable dresssings include dresses that show secret parts of men or women. For example, women wearing cloths that exposes their naked chest, laps, armpits and all areas that should have been covered. Most women which include female pastors even wear trousers and believe they are going to heaven. Do not deceive yourself, you can not break the law of God and make it to heaven.The bible call all those cloths attire of an harlot and you will be judge like harlots.Deutoronomy 22:5,Proverbs 7:10
2. Worldliness in appearance
All forms of hair styles that glorify the world or draw attention of others to a female or male sexual parts are evil and wicked before the Lord. Changing your natural hair type to another race is confusion and wickedness before the Lord. Placing fake hair on your head in the form of attachment is evil and sinful. All forms of cloths that agree with the systems of the world is against God. The bible instructs us to be different from the world and look humble for Christ.
3. Bodily adornments
Many christains wear jewelries for many excuses. Some christians believe that wedding rings agrees with God because the world accept this. Gold, silver or all forms of Jewelries have been turned into idol by men right from the bible days. There is also no record that wedding rings were used to conduct any Godly wedding in the bible. The history and practice of bodily adornments can be traced to idolatry and God abbors such evil practises. God has made us perfecct, we do not need anything else.Chrsitians on the highway of holiness cannot wear jewelries and bodily adornment because it is an unclean thing. In addition all forms of painting of face, lips, and nails are great wickedness before the Lord. Christians are expected to look natural for Jesus.
4. Worldliness in Lifestyles
If your lifestyles are worldly and you live for sports and games of the world you are not part of the wise virgins. Many games involve one form of sins or the other. Children of God cannot be laughing watching wrestling instead of praying for the souls fighting themselves. It is not the will of God for us to fight one another. Some christians also support football teams with different demonic names such as red devil, dragon serpent etc. How would you enter heaven with these wicked practises. You will not be able to negotiate holiness with God when you die.
5. Worldliness in Music
All forms of worldly music is a praise and worship to satan. If you sing or enjoy these musics, you are part of the backsliding Isreal. Most of these artist have sold their soul to satan If you also know that hell is eternal you will help yourself out of the love of these music. The bible told us to sing Pslams and spiritual songs that glorify the Lord Jesus Christ. Do not deceive yourself, worldly music will land you to hell fire.
6. Worldliness Riches
Many christians thought that their entitlements to Abraham blessings means that they need to be stinkingly rich. Some pastors even hold seminars and conferences on how to be rich on earth. The Lord Jesus did not condemn the riches in itself but warned us that riches are great obstacles to make it to heaven. The more your riches are on earth, the less your chances of making it to heaven (Mark 10:17-31). Many wealthy pastors today are already condemned before God because they store up treasures that they should give out to the poor. Spirits of pride, wealth competition and arrogancy are the stubbling block of their iniquities.
Matt6: 19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
