The Sin Of Indifference And Complacency
Revelation 3:15-16, “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.”
By David J. Stewart | April 2015 | Updated November 2015
Perhaps the greatest evil in America is people's lack of concern over important issues. Certainly, most of our nation's churches are guilty of the sins of indifference and complacency. People just don't care anymore. Jesus foretold in Matthew 24:12 that because lawlessness (iniquity: unpunished evil) would abound, the love of many would grow cold.
The word “complacency” is defined as “contended to a fault.”
The word “indifference” is defined as “marked by lack of interest; lacking importance, not mattering one way or the other.”
When a society becomes so content from prosperity that it no longer cares about the lives of human beings in the womb, it is wickedness!!! It is wickedness to grow complacent and indifferent toward God's commandments. Americans have become apathetic (not caring) about spiritual matters. We are indifferent, and that includes most churchgoers (most of whom aren't even born-again). Our churches are saturated with doctrinal error! The culprits are the corrupted Bible versions!
I just learned in the news this week that one of the largest Protestant religious groups in the United States, the Presbyterian Church, has officially vote in favor of allowing and recognizing same-sex marriages. Talk about wickedness!!! God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve! Homosexuality is a gross sin, worthy of death, which brings the judgment of God (Romans 1:24-32). Biblically, more than half the people in the United States are worthy of death: adulterers, blasphemers, idolaters, witches, sodomites, et cetera.
When churches become so complacent from prosperity that they no longer care about the truth and morality, it is wickedness!!! Most churches today use different Bible versions and really don't care about which one is correct, even though the versions all drastically differ in theology one from another. What is wrong with Christians today? The answer is indifference and complacency. I am not a Mike Huckabee fan, because he is a devout Zionist, but he is 100% correct when he said . . .
Mike Huckabee Correct That Gays Won't Rest Until Real Uncompromising Bible Churches Are Gone
The American people are spiritually asleep . . .
Matthew 13:15-16, “For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.”
Pastor Harry Ironside makes the following excellent comments concerning the importance of exposing error . . .
“Exposing error is most unpopular work. But from every true standpoint it is worthwhile work. To our Savior, it means that He receives from us, His blood-bought ones, the loyalty that is His due. To ourselves, if we consider 'the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt,' it ensures future reward, a thousand-fold. And to souls 'caught in the snare of the fowler'—how many of them God only knows—it may mean light and life, abundant and everlasting.”

'NEWSWEEK' Attacks The Word of God!
I ran across an ungodly NEWSWEEK article today which trashes out the Holy Bible as manmade confusion, tears down Christians, and does so in an attempt to lessen and justify the gross sin of homosexuality. Here's the last part of the shameful article . . .
The Bible: So Misunderstood It's a Sin!
by Kurt Eichenwald | December 23, 2014
...The Bible is a very human book. It was written, assembled, copied and translated by people. That explains the flaws, the contradictions, and the theological disagreements in its pages. Once that is understood, it is possible to find out which parts of the Bible were not in the earliest Greek manuscripts, which are the bad translations, and what one book says in comparison to another, and then try to discern the message for yourself.
And embrace what modern Bible experts know to be the true sections of the New Testament. Jesus said, Don’t judge. He condemned those who pointed out the faults of others while ignoring their own. And he proclaimed, “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
That's a good place to start!”
SOURCE: The Bible: So Misunderstood It's a Sin
If you read the rest of the article, you'd easily be convinced if you don't know any better that God's Word cannot be trusted, because men have changed it so much that it's no longer God's Word. Although this is certainly true in the case of all the modern Bible versions which were translated from the heretical Greek of Westcott and Hort, it is not true concerning the preserved King James Bible. Mr. Eichenwald claims that the King James Bible didn't come from the Greek, but from Latin and other English translations. That's not true. Although the King James translators referenced the Latin Vulgate and other English predecessor Bibles, they very much based their work upon the original Hebrew, Chaldean and Greek manuscripts. The entire article by Kurt Eichenwald in NEWSWEEK is a clever deception of bogus claims and a total misrepresentation of the truth. For example: In the article Eichenwald says that Jesus' deity and the Godhead (Trinity) were not taught in the authentic original autographs. That is a lie of Satan!
Eichenwald contends that the religious right (Christians) should shut-up about homosexuality being a sin (which he says is a mistranslation), and instead we should focus on not judging others and loving our neighbour as our self. Although that sounds good and is true to an extent, Eichenwald fails to tell the truth that God made homosexuality a crime in the Old Testament, which was punishable by death. This was the government's duty, not neighbour killing neighbour. Up until the year 1962, homosexuality was a crime punishable by law in all 50 states in the United States. Our founding fathers established the death penalty for sodomites! Thomas Jefferson wanted to have them castrated instead, but the higher powers said to keep the death penalty for sodomites!
My friend, it is not a coincidence that Satan has used the love of money to inspire wicked men and women to publish hundreds of Bibles in the English language. Every year, dozens of new Bible versions are published onto the market. Satan is the author of confusion, not God (1st Corinthians 14:33). All of the different Bible versions cause utter confusion in the churches and society. You'd be shocked to learn how many evangelical churchgoers have at least a dozen different Bible versions on their bookshelf. I seriously doubt if most of them are saved, because Satan has confused them with different Bible versions to believe a works-based false plan of Lordship Salvation. Acts 19:32, “Some therefore cried one thing, and some another: for the assembly was confused; and the more part knew not wherefore they were come together.”
How Much Do You Care?
It's been wisely said, “The biggest problem today is apathy, but who cares?” I CARE! DO YOU? The Bible teaches that strife is like water. Proverb 17:14, “The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water: therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with.” In other words, it's like a dam that holds back the water. If a small leak springs, you can still fix the leak while it's small; but if you allow the leak to get worse and grow bigger, eventually the problem will become so bad that it's unstoppable. It's much harder to stop a broken-down dam, than it is to repair a small leak.
Likewise, nipping error and sin creeping into the church or society in the bud will prevent it from escalating into a giant problem. The reason why America is in such a big moral mess today is because the Christians of the previous generations did nothing to fight against the problem when it was small. The churches should have went bizzerk in 1953 when Hugh Hefner published his first Playboy magazine. The filthy magazine featured the whore Marilyn Monroe. Interesting, Mr. Hefner has purchased a burial crypt next to Marilyn Monroe. Hefner in now 88-years-old and will soon meet His Maker. Sadly, they will also share the fires of Hell forever and ever. Jesus would gladly save Hugh Hefner if he wanted to be saved, but he refuses to come to the Lord by faith to be receive the gift of eternal life (John 5:40), because Hefner loves his adulterous lifestyle of evil (John 3:20). When Playboy opened a smutty bookstore in Indonesia, the locals (Muslims) took sledge-hammers and tore it to the ground. Praise the Lord for that!!!
The sad truth is that unsaved Mormon women often dress far more modest than born-again Christian women do. That is shameful! The shocking truth is that unsaved Muslims are usually far more moral than born-again Christians are . . .
Muslim activists attack Playboy offices in Indonesia
2006-04-12 | Author : Steve Walters | News Category : WorldIndonesian Muslims are angered by plans for a local edition of Playboy.
Indonesian Muslims are angered by a new Playboy office in Jakarta.
JAKARTA, Indonesia - About 300 members of the Islamic Defenders' Front (FPI) took out a protest rally and attacked Playboy's new offices in Indonesia. The famous men's magazine was launched in the most populous Muslim country in the world last week, but hardliner Muslims fear that the magazine would adversely affect the youth of the country who are already heavily influenced by the "decadent" Western culture.
The FPI activists gathered outside Playboy's offices and hurled stones tore up copies of the magazines and threatened more protests unless the magazine stopped publication in the country. About 90 policemen were stationed outside the building and it was reported that one of them suffered minor injuries.
"We will carry out more attacks if Playboy refuses to stop publishing," Salim Ali Hamid, one of the leaders of FPI told a local radio station. Playboy's Indonesian edition was launched last Friday and quickly sold out with many copies being sold on the black market for three times the price of the original at 39,000 rupiah ($4.33).
The issue is where to draw the line on decency.
The magazine does not carry any nude pictures, but had images of underwear-clad women in addition to an interview with the country's most famous author, Pramoedya Ananta Toer. FPI activists are already known as the de facto culture police and attack Jakarta's most famous nightspots.
FPI has maintained that Playboy is like pornography and cannot be published in the country. South Jakarta police chief Wiliardi Wizard was quoted as telling Reuters that police would be questioning the leader of the FPI, “If they can hand over the perpetrators then that's good. Otherwise we'll have to hunt them,” he said.
The Indonesian president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has taken into consideration the concerns voiced by several Muslim leaders before giving the nod for Playboy's publication in February. Muslims make up about 85 percent of Indonesia's population of 220 million.
Here are some thought-provoking quotes on indifference by various secular writers . . .
“Science may have found a cure for most evils; but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all... the apathy of human beings.” ―Helen Keller
“If moderation is a fault, then indifference is a crime.” ―Jack Kerouac
“The opposite of love is not hate. It is indifference.” ―Christopher Pike, Black Blood
“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference.
The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.” ―Elie Wiesel
“Our country is the best country in the world. We are swimming in prosperity and our President is the best president in the world. We have larger apples and better cotton and faster and more beautiful machines. This makes us the greatest country in the world. Unemployment is a myth. Dissatisfaction is a fable. In preparatory school America is beautiful. It is the gem of the ocean and it is too bad. It is bad because people believe it all. Because they become indifferent. Because they marry and reproduce and vote and they know nothing.” ―John Cheever
Christians today need to get into the King James Bible more than ever (and abide there) . . .
Dr. McGee rightly states, “We're a nation of Biblical ignoramuses! We do not know the Word of God today in this land!” (Pastor J. Vernon McGee, THRU-THE-BIBLE, commentary from Hosea 4:1-2).
Bless God, you can call me a “square” if you want to, but a square doesn't go around in circles! Amen! It's OK to be a nut if you're screwed onto the right bolt, Jesus! The only hope for the United States is THE TRUTH! Since our churches are being infiltrated and corrupted with hundreds of modernized Bible versions, and infiltrators like Joel Osteen and Rick Warren, most churches don't stand a chance. Pastors just don't stand for God anymore! The goal of the Devil's New World Order is to unite the churches. This is why the Episcopalism Church is so popular with Wiccan witches, Satanists, Bohemian Grove members and adherents of feminist theology.
Episcopals are extremely ecumenical. This is just one of thousands of apostate religious groups that are pulling on the same rope as the Devil. Tragically, most evangelical churches today are far more interested in making a steady income instead of proclaiming the truth of God's Word. Too many Christian leaders are simply making a living and don't want to suffer persecution for truly living godly in Christ Jesus as 2nd Timothy 3:12 teaches. When you truly stand for God, like I do, all war breaks loose! Bring it on Devil, I'm on the Lord's side!
Why Do Christians Go Along With Lying, Bearing False Witness, Stealing & Murder?
America is on a Highway to Hell in so many ways! I could write a hundred books on the matter! Our nation's public schools are controlled by Satan, indoctrinating children with the lies of Evolution, and the PERversion of today's homosexual-promoting sex education garbage! All of today's Vevo, VH1 and MTV music videos are filled with sexual filth, intended to recruit teens at an early age into premarital sex (fornication) and get them for Satan while they're young.
The average adult today is a causality of generations of Godlessness in America. We've been indoctrinated to think about all the wrong things by the mainstream newsmedia and television, keeping us from focusing on the true crimes of Washington D.C. politicians. Big federal government has become an unstoppable monster! If America has any hope at all, it is in individual churches. The Devil won't attack a dead church; but all the hordes of Hell will attack a church that is preaching the truth about the tyranny, fraud, crimes and the overthrow of the American Republic by the Illuminati. This is because THE TRUTH is the number one enemy of the Illuminati (i.e., the thugs behind the New World Order). Since these fluent Luciferian-worshipping families painstakingly avoid appearing in the mainstream news, the average American is not even aware who these people are or what they are doing behind the scenes to control everything. Please read 13 Bloodlines Of The Illuminati (shocking material).
U.S. President John F. Kennedy warned a group of students at Columbia University ten days before his assassination that there was a plot to overthrow the office of the President...
“The high office of the President has been used to foment a plot to destroy the American's freedom and before I leave office, I must inform the citizens of this plight.” —President John Fitzgerald Kennedy - In a speech made to Columbia University on Nov. 12, 1963, ten days before his assassination!
Since his murder, the office of the U.S. President (effectively The White House) has been hijacked by the Illuminati (aka, Globalists, Zionists, Marxists, Communists, International Banking Cartel, Freemasons, Bohemian Grove, Skull and Bones, Bilderberg, United Nations, The Council On Foreign Relations, et cetera). All these groups are key participants in the Illuminati's hierarchy of power, Satan being at the very top. There is a highly secretive power structure of darkness which controls the world. This is Biblical. We learn in 2nd Corinthians 4:4 that Satan (Lucifer) is the god (little g) of this world. As such, Lucifer controls his world through occult (hidden) organizations and groups. The truth is readily available at your fingertips on the internet from thousands of different sources if you desire to know the truth. Like the moon and the sun, the truth can only be hid for so long. Hell will be hot enough!
Every born-again Christian needs to understand that you cannot trust the federal government at all, nor should you support them in their present state of rebellion against God, the American people, the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. The Holy Bible does not call for Christians to go along with evil, tyranny, fraud and criminal activities against sovereign nations (our neighbours).
If your local mayor's office decides one day to kill your neighbour and steal his farm land for themselves, do you think God wants you to obey your government by staying quiet about it? Should you support the law enforcement in the act of going to kill the man, rallying for them?
How about what Jezebel did to Naboth in the Bible? She framed Naboth, accusing him of slandering the king, having him executed. Then she stole his land and gave it to her cry-baby husband who wanted it so badly for the wine groves. That's no different than what our nation did to the Iraqi people... NOT ONE BIT DIFFERENT (except that we murdered 1,455,590 people instead of just one)!!! The Bush Administration admittedly lied repeatedly to justify military invasion and overthrow of Iraq. Is it nothing to you oh Christian???
The ungodly American newsmedia rallied the churches and naive Americans behind the illegal war against Iraq. Anyone who dared to question the legitimacy of the ruthless war was immediately demonized as being unpatriotic by American traitors like Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity and other rich stooges for the Illuminati. They are the ones who betrayed America! The average American (including Christians) is as woefully ignorant as dirt. All the Illuminati need to do is blow something up overseas, claim it was done by some boogieman terrorist group, say that America could be next, and then burden the American people to support more and more war, killing and piles of bodies.
With such psyops tactics, war will ALWAYS be a part of the American life.
It's time for born-again Christians to WAKE UP! Here's 7 actions you should take . . .
DON'T SUPPORT EXPLOITATION OF MILITARY - It's time for Americans to stop supporting the exploitation of our youth as paid mercenaries in the military. I'm all for having a military and serving in the armed forces. I think young people should join the military, but not when criminals have hijacked the Pentagon, The White House and Wall Street (aka, the military industrial complex).
DON'T VOTE REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT FOR U.S. PRESIDENT - It's time for our churches to stop voting for Republican criminals, who are just as bad as the Democrats (they're just two sides of the SAME New World Order coin). They're all either criminals or support criminals! Every Republican U.S. President since Roe vs. Wade in 1973 has claimed to be against abortion, while hypocritically in office giving billions of dollars to Planned Parenthood (Herodhood), the biggest provider of abortion services in America. Both Democrat and Republican Presidents have utterly lied their way into office. They've lied while in office, and they have lied after leaving office. We have become a nation of liars!!!
TELL THE TRUTH THAT 911 WAS AN INSIDE JOB! - It's time for preachers to start telling the truth about the 911 attacks. It was an INSIDE JOB! Two planes cannot bring down three buildings in less than 7 to 13 seconds, respectively. As numerous NYC firefighters have testified, there were BOMBS in the buildings! It's time for preachers to tell the truth that Iraq was wrongly attacked and violated by the United States and UN coalition forces. What Americans did to Iraqi is 1,455,590 times worse than what Jezebel did to Naboth (1st Kings 21:1-19).
DON'T SUPPORT PRESENT-DAY ISRAEL (ZIONISM) - It's time for the churches to stop supporting present-day Marxist-Communist Israel, that is, Satan's Israel. This is called the heresy of Zionism. True Israel will turn to the Lord when they are returned to the land. That has happened yet. Israel has returned to the land, but not the Lord. And may I say, there are more born-again Arabs in Israel today than Jews. Less than 2.5% of the inhabitants of Israel profess faith in Christ (and that includes all the pseudo-Christian cults; like Mormons, Catholics and Seventh-Day Adventists). Zionism is being a respecter of persons, which is a sin (James 2:9; Romans 2:11 - King James Bible).
THROW AWAY AND EXPOSE COUNTERFEIT BIBLES - It's time for Christians to cast the counterfeit Bibles out of the churches! Tell the Devil to take his garbage and get out! Every modern Bible that comes from the Alexandrian, Egypt, manuscripts translated by heretics Brooke Westcott and Fenton Hort and satanic! Only the precious KING JAMES BIBLE is trustworthy and reliable! All of the new modernized Bible PERversions teach Lordship Salvation, which is where the churches are getting this heresy from.
- EXPOSE THE LIE OF LORDSHIP SALVATION - Perhaps the biggest battle in our churches today is over the plan of salvation. A subtle heresy (which has existed in every generation throughout history) says that it's not enough to realize that you're a sinner and believe the Gospel to be saved. According to Lordship Salvation, you must stop doing bad works to be saved. They say you cannot be saved (or you're not ready to be saved) unless you fully intend to stop living a sinful lifestyle. This is a false teaching, because we are plainly taught in the Holy Bible that eternal life is a free gift, which cannot be merited (Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5; Romans 3:20; Romans 5:15; 6:23).
- BEWARE OF SPIRITUALITY WITHOUT THEOLOGY - Pastors are getting away from teaching the deity of Christ, the reality of Hell, the Godhead, the sinlessness of Jesus Christ, the virgin birth, Christ's bodily resurrection, et cetera.
Of course, our first priority as Christians ought to be the preaching of the Gospel to everyone. Many churches, even independent Baptists, are getting away from preaching the Gospel. Instead, they teach the heresy of Lordship Salvation, elevating a form of holy living in Christ's name as a substitute for the gift of eternal life. Satan is far more subtle than we could ever imagine. Lucifer is slick, a world-class liar and deceiver. Jesus called the Devil the father of all liars and murderers (John 8:44).
love God who doesn't love sinners!”
