Y2K - The Tares (LG20)

Mat 13:27-30 "So the servants of the owner came and said to him, 'Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?' He said to them, 'An enemy has done this.' The servants said to him, 'Do you want us then to go and gather them up?' But he said, ' No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest,'"

After Y2K, the field planted with wheat were filled with tares. How did the servants of God recognized these tares?

Gal 5:19-21 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Suddenly after Y2K, the body of Christ were filled with covetous and sensual pastors and church leaders taking over the pulpits.

Mat 13:38 "The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one."

The wicked one attacked the church in 2 prongs.
1. By practicing abominable acts, such as sodomy.
2. By deceptions with distorted doctrines and heresies

Rom 1:26-27, 32 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due....who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

In 2003, Bishop Gene Robinson openly confessed that he was a sodomite (gay), and sadly enough today most of the mainline and evangelical churches approved the practice of sodomy. Do they not realize that all those who approve or practice sodomy are destined to damnation? Even God's appointed marriage between a man and a woman, is destroyed by the approval of gay marriage in US and some former Christian nations.

2Pet 2:1-3 But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.

Covetous pastors, church leaders and televangelists were found to teach distorted truth to rob the congregations. However these congregations sincerely believed them to be servants of God and gave willingly to God. These are the wheat (good seeds) or born again Christians though misled and deceived. These Christians opposed sodomy and many other abominable practices. For their sake, God did not remove these tares, whom many Christians honour as godly servants of God, fearing that their faith may be shaken or destroyed and thus lose their salvation.

Brethren, let us be sober and watchful. Let us be His faithful servants and watchmen by condemning the approval of heresies and sodomy, which leads to damnation.
