Break Your Chain Of Condemnation

 

Does this represent you, as a Christian? It sure did me.

A tiger, unable to grow, chained up with NO CLUE about the amount of power that was now in me because of my faith in Christ.

So much potential with nowhere to go, bound by a chain of guilt and condemnation.

Oh I was a Christian alright; saved, ticket to heaven stamped, and fully qualified by God to do wonderful things for Him in this world – BUT, I didn’t understand WHO I now was, or WHAT God had placed in me because I now believed in Jesus.

How did this happen? How did I become a Christian in chains?…

Religion. Religion, and religious people, did this to me – and I let them. Why? Because I didn’t know who I really was in Christ. So I just sat still as they chained me up, thinking it was okay.

Now, I want to make clear: I mean no disrespect to anyone. When I say religion, I’m not talking about Christianity, I’m talking about people and institutions who find their identity in what THEY do and DON’T DO for God, and then they condemn those who aren’t just like them, even other Christians.

I’m talking about those who use Jesus as a weapon to shame other believers and cause them harm. Those who refuse to see their own terrible sin of judgment and harsh criticism. They are graceless, unloving, and fair-weather friends in Christ.

They love to compare their denomination and style of worship to those “who just ain’t Christian” like them. “Church ain’t meant to entertain you! BACKSLIDER!”, is one of their mantras.

They completely forget Jesus’ command to love others as He loves us, whitewashing it as discernment. It’s disgusting. It’s false advertising.

These people will keep you chained by attempting to instill in your heart that “If you don’t go to church, you’re going to hell.” Or, “If you become a Christian, and you sin, you didn’t really get saved, so you need to get saved again.”

CHAINS!!!!! THESE ARE CHAINS!!! THIS IS CONDEMNATION AND IT’S FROM THE PITS OF HELL!!!

YOU HAVE THE POWER TO BREAK FREE!!! IF YOU DON’T, THEN YOU WILL STAY CHAINED UP! YOU WON’T FULFILL YOUR GOD-GIVEN PURPOSE! AND YOU DEFINITELY WON’T FULLY ENJOY YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS!!!

This is your choice. YOU choose. Nobody else does. YOU choose to stay chained up.

I get messages on this page all the time from people pouring out their hearts to me saying how they feel terrible, even as a Christian. About how they go to church, but they still feel weak; about how they read their Bible, or do good things, but still, they hate their lives and they feel bad…. They still feel condemned.

You’re NOT condemned any longer. That chain is YOURS to break. YOU ARE PERFECT BECAUSE OF WHAT JESUS DID FOR YOU! PLEASE, RECOGNIZE THIS AND BECOME WHO YOU WERE MADE TO BECOME! Please, understand your VALUE.

You must personally accept this fact. You must stop believing the lies of the devil through religion, AND BREAK FREE FROM THAT CHAIN!!! If you don’t, you will STAY where you are at!!! YOU HAVE SO MUCH POTENTIAL! SO MANY GOD-GIVEN GIFTS, TALENTS, AND ABILITIES, BUT YOU MUST BREAK FREE FROM CONDEMNATION!

So today, my friends, know this: Because of your faith in Christ, God now sees you as perfect. Even if you don’t FEEL perfect, that doesn’t matter, you are. Religious people hate this idea because they want you to “be like them” and “earn” your goodness. You can’t. They can’t. They are doing it wrong, and it’s sad.

So simply ACCEPT your new perfection IN CHRIST, break that chain, and then begin to live out your life to show Jesus how much you appreciate His free gift of making you PERFECT, and completely deleting your condemnation. If you will do this, you will be helping Him change the world for the better! BREAK FREE TODAY! -Matt
