Most of us here at Calvary Temple are pretenders. We learn early on to mask our real feelings. Truthfulness could land us on the street. All of us have lost someone because they would not play the game pastor has invented. A game that has little to do with God or the Bible. We are trying to survive in a world where sooner or later we all end up losing.
- Children – pretending to love teachers, coaches, pastors who they know will put them on the street in a moment.
- Wives – pretending to obey and agree with husbands who will kick them out of their own home if they don’t.
- Husbands – pretending to obey and agree with pastor because if they don’t, their families will be told to leave them.
- Pastor – WE ARE GREAT PRETENDERS.
But God says, “God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me” (Job 27:5). “Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee” (Psalm 25:21). “And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man:for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth:Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not” (Mark 12:14).
