Matthew 18:20“For where two or three are gathered together in My Name, there I am in their midst.”
Many stay-at-home members use this verse to justify not fellowshipping with a larger organization. On the surface, it seems to support their argument. However, we must look at it in context.
The chapter begins with Jesus teaching about our need for humility (verses 1-5). He uses the analogy of body parts to show the importance of not offending little ones (verses 6-10). He then gives the Parable of the Lost Sheep to show His concern for every sheep (verses 11 – 14). He instructs about how we should deal with offenses among us (verses 15-20). The context of the entire chapter is interpersonal relations and offenses, not church administration. Peter understoodthis,for he immediately asks how often one should forgive a brother (verse 21).
God requires two or three witnesses lest injustice come from one man’s word against another (verse 16; Deuteronomy 19:15). He will honor the decision based on the judgment of two or three along with the accuser. If the offender will not listen to them, the offense should be taken to a larger forum—the church. The very context assumes the existence of a larger group. God prefers, however, that matters be handled privately in a smaller group whom He will be among rather than escalating every personal problem to the attention of the whole church. Notice the instruction: Go to the offender ALONE first, then escalate it only as necessary to solve the problem.
In I Corinthians 5, Paul shows how this works in practical application when a church member was unabashedly committing sexual sins. Notice that Paul had ministerial, hierarchical authority over the Gentile church in Corinth. He even made his judgment of the situation—disfellowship that man!—without being present! Later, upon the man’s repentance,he ordered him restored, and forgave even as they forgave (II Corinthians 2:10). He also legislated what their attitude and approach to a repentant sinner should be!
Did he allow every group of two or three in the congregation to make a judgment? How would God have bound the conflicting judgments that surely would have arisen between the people of varying levels of understanding and maturity in Corinth? The church would have been divided into many small groups had Paul not exercised his authority.
Is that not what we have seen as groups have misapplied Matthew 18:20, lifting it out of context, and justifying their own doctrinal and administrative decisions? This misapplication and twisting of this one scripture automatically repudiates any authority God placed in an ordained ministry and splinters the church. Is that how Paul understood Scripture, or did he constantly defend his own position as an apostle and that of the local ordained ministry to preserve unity?
We are told to judge by the fruits. What are the fruits of two or three people deciding they can make doctrinal and administrative judgments? We need look no further than the dividing and redividing of groups in today’s greater church of God to see that the fruits are not good.
Scattered sheep are just that: scattered and in grave danger. Contrast the dubious idea of Christ giving administrative authority to two or three scattered sheep to the very clear and powerful administrative authority given to Peter as head administrator of the church in Matthew 16:18 (see also John 21:15-17). Compare also Hebrews 5:4 where no man can take the office of high priest to himself. Can any of us decide we are the final word? Can we take any office in the priesthood to ourselves? God compares presumption to witchcraft (I Samuel 15:23).
Well, I am sure that I could go on and on, so we will conclude this little side step.
Liberals – Blame problems on everyone but themselves
This one was a little more difficult because conservative and so-called moderate thinkers are guilty of this as well. It just seems that liberal thinking is full of whining, and blaming others goes right along with whining. But, let it be understood that when anything goes wrong, the liberals blame the conservatives and vice versa. Moderates, of course, wait around to see where most of the chips fall.
The most obvious ‘blamer’ was our last President and his wife. If I blame someone else, it takes the focus off of me. If I do it long enough, I will have convinced myself of my innocence as well. Mr. Clinton was very good at that. Most of the Clintons’ problems were the fault of a “vast right-wing conspiracy”. Blaming conservative legislation for a bad economy is always quite convincing. Blaming SUV’s for auto deaths and injuries, and the internal combustion engine for the destruction of the planet is quite popular. There has been more than a dozen attempts to blame 9-11 on the Bush administration or even President Bush himself. The down turn of Wall Street was Bush’s fault, as was the collapse of several corporations. The antifreeze in my air conditioner is responsible for the hole in the ozone, not to mention my anti-perspirent and certain antihistamines. Apparantly it is items that begin with ‘anti’ that seems to be the problem. Why is it that liberals see no problem with the ‘antichrist’? High crime is blamed on poverty. Violent teens and school shootings are the result of videos and bullys. The source of sexual promiscuity and lawlessness comes directly from Hollywood. Gunshot deaths are blamed on the guns. When I carelessly dump hot coffee in my lap, it is McDonald’s fault.
I get a mound of newsletters and emails from various Christian organizations every month begging me to contribute to their organization to help stop a variety of abominable practices that the ‘bad people’ are doing. Who are these lawless culprits? They are proponents of the new world order, new age shamans, people who read Harry Potter, Democrats, James Carville, abortion clinics, Martin Scorcese, San Francisco courts, Hillary Clinton, Larry Flynt, Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, communism, Ozzy Osbourne, and flag burners. Every week I get a letter pointing at the darkness and warning me that they are dark. The problems in this country are because of the darkness and those who are evil, they proclaim, and we must stand united against it. But darkness will only flee when there is light, and only when the light IS light will the darkness flee. The moral decay of this nation is because the vessels of light have little or no idea what light is. Hey guys, according to all the polls, the Christians outnumber the bad guys by 90 to 1. Perhaps there is too fine of a line between the two.
Liberalism is guided by polls.
Let’s face it, the media is liberalism and liberalism is the media. Every night on the cable networks a poll is taken to see what the people think. Many times, when there is little or no juicy news, the poll results become the leading news item. My favorite polls are the ones in which the masses are asked questions concerning foreign policy, or whether we should go to war or not. Or how about quizzing the populace on their views of Israel and the Palestinians? How about the average citizens opinion on why the stock market is plummeting? The answers to these questions are taken very seriously by liberals and conservatives alike, and are especially important to moderates. Expert consultants are brought in to evaluate the meaning behind these polls. Here is a common poll result taken a few months back. The question was asked, “Who do you think is on the right side of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict? When the results came in, it was clear that America was behind Israel 41 percent to the Palestinians 28 percent, with 31 percent not sure. Wow! The commentators concluded, America is definitely behind Israel. So, what did this mean to the media? Well, there has obviously been too little positive coverage of the Palestinians!
Now, where do you suppose the idea of reacting to what the people think came from? Who has annual conventions and votes (polls) on doctrinal issues? Who concludes that the message must be right because, after all, look how much our church has grown? Look how many people we have. Who holds back the truth because it may run off the congregation? I know that there are mainline Christian pastors out there that visit this website. Ask yourself a question and answer it honestly. If one day you discovered that you had been following a pagan tradition by celebrating and even preaching sermons concerning Easter and Christmas, would you share that with your congregation? Would you teach them that it is wrong and an abominable practice according to scripture? If you had concluded that YHVH never commanded Sabbath to be exchanged for Sunday worship, how soon would it be before you moved your services to Shabbat? How many people would you have in your next service if you taught the faithful that Torah was for all of God’s people for all times? You would not last a week, because as tradition is, tradition does.
I wanted to take a few weeks and blow off some steam. I know I sound very harsh and unrelenting toward the Christian religion. It is and will continue to be one of the main purposes of this ministry. Preparing the bride for her bridegroom is part of the stated function of Wildbranch. Playing our part in restoring God’s Torah to a Torahless religion is why we exist. The ultimate conundrum is not between liberal and conservative or between Republicans and Democrats. When it is all said and done it will be the difference between the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent. It is always between righteous and unrighteous, holy and unholy, the tree of life or the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. That is really the bottom line. And in the end it will ultimately boil down to those who truly have the Son and those who truly do not.
Hitgalut (Revelation) 12:17 “And the dragon was angry with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Messiah Yahshua.”
