311 Man Has No True Faith in Christ

I

What you admire is not the humility of Christ,

but those false shepherds of prominent standing.

You do not adore the loveliness or wisdom of Christ,

but those libertines who wallow in the filth of the world.

You laugh at the pain of Christ who has no place to lay His head,

but admire those corpses that hunt for offerings and live in debauchery.

You’re not willing to suffer alongside Christ,

but you gladly throw yourself into the arms of those reckless antichrists,

though they only supply you with flesh, words, and control.

Even now, your heart still turns toward them,

toward their reputation, their status, and their influence,

yet you continue to hold an attitude

whereby you find Christ’s work hard to swallow

and you are unwilling to accept it.

This is why God says that you lack the faith to acknowledge Christ.


II

The reason you have followed Christ to this day

is only because you had no other option.

A series of lofty images are forever towering in your heart;

you can’t forget their every word and deed,

nor their influential words and hands.

They are, in your heart, forever supreme and forever heroes.

But this is not so for the Christ of today.

He is forever insignificant in your heart, and forever undeserving of fear.

For He is far too ordinary,

has far too little influence, and is far from lofty.

God says that all those who don’t value the truth

are nonbelievers and betrayers of the truth.

Such men shall never receive the approval of Christ.
