Most people love the idea of having their cake, while at the same time consuming all of it. I too love to keep my cake, while consuming all of it with a cup of tea. I too love not having to ever deal with the consequences of my actions. In the kingdom of God, however, the only thing that matters is the consequences. When we say something to God, he never judges us by what we have said. Instead, he waits to see the results our words have produced. If our words are true, they will bear fruit that is in keeping with what we have said. If our words are false, they will bear no fruit. Hence the reason that God always looks to the consequences, the fruit, the product produced by our words and our thoughts.
So, when you are in church tomorrow and your priest or pastor asks you to recite the Nicene Creed, ask yourself whether you have produced any fruit that is in keeping with the words of the Creed. Have you insisted that there be only one God, or do you keep a substitute God hidden in the closet for those times when you have to have it your way. Do you believe he created everything, visible and invisible, or do you think that evolution must have played a role. Is Jesus your Lord and Master, or are you hoping he will share the throne with you, so that you can continue to do things in accordance with your church's doctrine, or your denomination's rule book.
When you make a decision that you believe is true, wait for the consequences before deciding whether it is genuinely true. Today, look at the condition of your church and ask yourself whether it reflects the premises of the Nicene Creed. If most or all of the members of your congregation have been raptured, you deserve a standing ovation. Otherwise, you have all the evidence you need that the Nicene Creed is not your modus operandi.
Where do we go from here? Pray in the spirit that God will reveal to you the future of your church or congregation, then ask the spirit of your church, "Who is your leader?" If your church has no leader, it will not survive. If it has a leader other than you, make the change quickly before it is too late, either by appointment, by a hiring decision, or by entering into a consulting agreement with the new leader. God will leave it up to you to decide which option is best, in consultation with the Holy Spirit, and with your new leader. If your leader will be leading several different churches, you probably will have to opt for a consulting agreement. If you choose not to accept God's appointed leader, your congregation will have no leader.
Congregations that have no leader will have to escape, literally through the flames by casting aside their doctrine, their dogmas, and their methodologies, and focusing exclusively on their individual relationship with God. Escaping with their life (eternal life) is all that matters, and that should become their principal focus. In the end, God will judge each person individually, so your loyalty to a church that will not survive is equivalent to committing the heinous act of ending your life. God wants you to be in his kingdom. He wants you to have the fruit of all your labors. Doing things his way is essential to receiving your reward. Doing things God's way always results in life eternal.
