Make Believe Christians

But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. [Revelation 2:6]

The Nicolaitans,(or as we would call them today “make believe Christians”, were a sect of people in Bible days that were Gnostics and they departed from the Word of God just like the church today. They had a form of Godness but They  practiced and taught impure and immoral doctrines that went against the teachings of the church and the Word of God, such as committing adultery and fornication, having a community of wives to share and then saying it was not sin. They did all this while still going to the synagogue to worship the Lord.   The phase which I also hate gives to us, (Those who read God’s Word), in no uncertain terms, the Lord’s position as it regards the deeds of the Nicolaitans. Anyone can see. if they had spiritual eyes and believed in God’s Word that they were living contrary to the word of God. We read this in the book of Psalms:“through your precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.” {Psalms 119:104]

We have in America today make believe Christians or if you please  “Nicolaitans” just like in Bible days, people who sit in the Churches of our Lord and think that it is okay to have abortion on demand, for homosexuals to be married to each other and in some churches stand behind the sacred desk and preach the word of God. Some who do not believe in abortion or homosexual marriage will go against their belief and the teachings of the church to vote for people like Obama to lead this country, who also teach and pass laws to promote these false ways. Some voted for him because of his skin color without looking at his heart. The Lord hates what these make believe Christians are doing (It is sin) and they will answer to him for it if they do not repent. 

Gnostics, in Bible days, thought that they were pure because of their knowledge. Whenever they practiced what others called sin or evil they thought they were not doing anything wrong. Such thinking is in direct opposition to God’s Word and our Christian faith, no matter if it was in Bible days or it is in our day. People think today that if they are a member of a denomination or church group then they can do what they want.


It is sad when a Christian will turn away from the teachings of the church to vote for a person or a political party that go against the teachings found in the Word of God or refuses to have God as a part of their platform, because of the material things that they might receive or because of what political party they belong to, or a persons skin color. To vote for such people is the same thing as saying it is alright for these leaders to go against God’s word. What will their excuse be when they stand before the Lord?


 It is time for all that believe in the Lord Jesus to put on the whole armor of God and have the courage to walk in the truth and the true light of the Lord. Christians cannot let the make believe Christians {the Nicolaitans]  in America to hinder and stop true Christians from restoring what God has ordained in His church and in the land of the free and the brave.  It is time to stand up for Jesus, His teachings, and be counted!

There is nothing better than studying the Bible, the history it contains, the stories of love and compassion, and the prophecies that are fulfilled and yet to be fulfilled. All my life I have found great comfort in reading the passages contained there. If people would only read and study the Bible for a half hour a day they would see the beauty of this Book. They would see that the answer to all life's problems are found between those sacred pages. And they would also see why The Bible is and always will be the Greatest Book in the world. It contains the very word of God. As an American I believe the Christian principles and values found in God's Word are a big part of what makes our Country great. Bill Patchett
