Welcome to Commandment Keepers!
By Richard Rives
We are living in extraordinary times. Just as in the days of Isaiah, truth is fallen in the street; and judgment is turned away backward. People have been systematically educated to believe that Biblical precepts are subject to the interpretation of scholars. Educated theologians purposefully continue to present a compromised gospel filled with pagan tradition that never had anything to do with Christ; and, on every front the truths of scripture are arrogantly disparaged while the wisdom of man is exalted and received as authoritative, and without question.
Today, it is amazing what is being presented as Christianity and there has never been a more important time in the history of mankind for those called out as servants of our Creator to confront the philosophy and vain deceit that would lead people away from our Savior. The truth has been thrown in the streets as a gesture of religious tolerance and compromise; and while there are countless numbers preaching another gospel, there are only a “few” who will stand for the truth.
Acts Chapter eleven tells us that it was in Antioch that the disciples of Jesus were first called Christians, a title found only three times in the Bible. Today most people recognize Christians as those who profess belief in Jesus Christ, yet over the past two thousand years it seems that every conceivable thing has attempted to associate itself with Christianity to the extent that now almost anything can be called Christian without question. Just believe in Jesus and that makes you a Christian. A careful study of scripture proves however that there is more to Christianity than just belief. James 2:19 says that devils also believe, and tremble; and in Luke 4:41 we are told that when Jesus cast those devils out they confessed Thou art Christ the Son of God. Did that make them Christians? Absolutely not!
In the Book of Revelation we find a description of saints: they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus; and it is the adherence to those commandments that sets true Christians apart from the world. CommandmentKeepers is an independent, nondenominational, on-line site where commandment keeping believers may submit their articles for publication. Christianity has lost its identity and it is time for Biblical Christians to reclaim a title that is rightfully theirs. That is what CommandmentKeepers is all about.
