Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate.  Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach.  For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.

What Is Not Christian, Part 2
Having Faith

"The just shall live by his faith."
The prophet Habakkuk, 2:4

"Whatever is not of faith is sin."
Paul, in Romans 14:23

Having faith in God is not the Christian thing to do because having faith in God will make us holy (Acts 26:18), and there is nothing anywhere in Christianity that will make anyone holy.

Having faith in God is not the Christian thing to do because having faith in God helps us to stand (2Cor. 2:14), and Christianity causes God's children to fall for things that are not of God.

Having faith in God is not the Christian thing to do because having faith in God moves us to speak (2Cor. 4:15), but the spirit of Christianity is a dumb spirit that Christian ministers have to tell converts they have received. Every religious spirit on earth is dumb, but the holy Ghost confesses Christ when it enters man's fleshly temple (1Cor. 1:1-3; 1Jn. 4:1-3).

Having faith in God is not the Christian thing to do because having faith in God justifies sinners (Gal. 2:16), and there is nothing anywhere in Christianity that will justify anyone.

Having faith in God is not the Christian thing to do because we receive the Spirit through faith in God (Gal. 3:14), and there is no ceremony or ritual anywhere in Christianity that will give anyone the holy Ghost.

Having faith in God is not the Christian thing to do because faith is a fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22) and Christianity is not.

Having faith in God is not the Christian thing to do because having faith in God will save us (Eph. 2:8), and the religion of Christianity has no power to save souls.

Having faith in God is not the Christian thing to do because there is only one holy faith (Eph. 4:5, 13), and Christianity is the champion of division among God's people. There are many Christianities, just as "there are many antichrist who have gone out into the world."

Having faith in God is not the Christian thing to do because having faith in God is the means of obtaining righteousness (Phip. 3:9), but having faith in Christianity will never make us righteous before God.

Having faith in God is not the Christian thing to do because we will inherit eternal promises by faith in God (Heb. 6:12), but by faith in Christianity, all that we will inherit is the wind. All Christianity can do is make promises; it can keep none of them.

Having faith in God is not the Christian thing to do because faith in God is the evidence of things not seen (Heb. 11:1), but faith in Christianity demands faith in carnal, tangible things. Paul said, "We look not at things that are seen but things that are not seen; for things that are seen are temporal, but things that are not seen are eternal" (2Cor. 4:18), but Christian tradition and doctrines demand faith in water for baptism, and in material food for communion with God, and in special days of the week and year for worship, and in physical rites of passage at every level of Christian life.

Having faith in God is not the Christian thing to do because by having faith in God, we understand the things of God (Heb. 11:6), but having faith in Christianity brings nothing but confusion concerning the things of God. Just look around and see! What Christian teacher is telling God's children to come out of Christianity and have faith in Christ alone to save them?

Having faith in God is not the Christian thing to do because by faith in God, we will be translated away from this earth, as Enoch was (Heb. 11:5), and there is nothing in Christianity that can transport a person into the presence of God.

Having faith in God is not the Christian thing to do because by faith in God we please God (Heb. 11:6), but there is no Christian deed that we can perform that will ever please God.

Having faith in God is not the Christian thing to do because by faith we keep the Passover and the Sabbath that have been ordained by God (Heb. 11:28; 1Cor. 5:7; Isa. 28:11-12 with Mt. 11:28), but by faith in Christianity, the children of God are reduced to keeping Christian holy days and observing Christian rituals.

Having faith in God is not the Christian thing to do because by putting our faith in God we overcome the world (1Jn. 5:4), but instead of overcoming the world, by putting their faith in Christianity, the children of God are overcome by the world.

Having faith in God is not the Christian thing to do because our faith in God is increased by praying in the holy Ghost (Jude 20), but faith in Christianity is diminished as we draw closer to God by the Spirit. Faith in Christianity is increased by increases in numbers and increasing donations and building more buildings; none of that religious activity is of God or even matters to God, nor has it ever done so since the time Jesus walked on earth among us.

"Come out of her, My people."
