“…They put on a front for those around them, but fail to FOOL God…”

Closet Husband, Closet employee, Closet friend…and the worst….Closet Christian.  What does it take to come out of the closet?  Some have difficulty coming out of the closet for a variety of reasons; from a lifestyle stand point; or accepting responsibility as a spouse and provider.  Others never show their TRUE MOTIVES in cultivating friendships, and they hone that style by the fakery of net-working.  And, there are employees who NEVER put forth their real skill-sets, as they do just enough to get by; thereby depriving their employer and co-workers, the true value of their abilities, not to mention that they stunt their career path. The worst, is the process by which some people deny God.  They attend Church, sing songs, etc., but fail to forgive, fail to love, fail to be compassionate, and fail to be a servant to mankind, much less to God. They put on a front for those around them, but fail to FOOL God.  All of these scenarios are examples of those living in the closet.  When we reconcile with Our Savior, then reconciling with the other closet-issues of life are a bi-product of facing reality.  Coming out of the closet, will open the door for an honest relationship with all other facets of life.  1 Thessalonians 2:5 – God tested us thoroughly to make sure we were qualified to be trusted with this Message.  Be assured that when we speak to you we’re not after crowd approval—only God approval.  Since we’ve been put through that battery of tests, you’re guaranteed that both we and the Message are free of error, mixed motives, or hidden agendas. We never used words to butter you up.  No one knows that better than you.  And God knows we never used words as a smoke screen to take advantage of you.  ….Blessings…cjlb… 1/23/14
