Why are so many Christian trying to be like the culture of this world and not to be like Jesus Christ?

Please watch these videos to understand what I am talking about. IJohn 2:15 1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJPtCNHHL... 2. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSw46ZIJV... 3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Ozu3WHqJ... Note that Matthew 7:1 Means Here Jesus warns against condemning the actions or motives of others. Only the Lord has the right to condemn since only He has full knowledge of a person's actions and motives (John 5:22; Romans 14:4,10). On the other hand, He has commanded us to "judge righteous judgment" (John 7:24). We should be able to recognize false teachers and "from such turn away" (2 Timothy 3:5; see also Matthew 7:15-20). Also, we should discern and rebuke these false brethren who are encouraging others to sin (Ephesians 5:7,11). In other words, we should be able to judge that which is wrong, in either doctrine or practice, and avoid (or correct) those who are involved, but we must not condemn them--God will do that. www.holybible.com They are correcting the Church not the world. "Jesus is coming back for the church and not the world!"

Jacob, I don't have to watch those videos to know what your talking about. It has a lot to do with false teachers and Churches teaching prosperity type gospels . The bible said that in the end times there would be wide spread apostasy and false teachers raring their heads. God bless & Merry Christ mas ! Jacob, Your totally misunderstanding the Matthew 7:1 Scripture . We are to judge the actions of others, What we cant do is judge them as in handing down a verdict or sentence for what they have done. But we most certainly can judge as to whether or not something someone has done is right or wrong.

Because they're trying to be both a part of the world and have something spiritual to hold onto at the same time. Sadly they don't understand that this doesn't work. I think it's scary for some people to let go of what is right here and now, which IS this world. For me the opposite has always been true. I live in this world, but I am not very good at being a part of it. I love people and I know people respond positively to me, but overall I'm quite a misfit.

because they seem to be a lengthy way extra worried with politics and the position they stand with people than they are with Christ. i in effortless words study the first sentence yet i comprehend what you assert. like political figures that say all people could take care of to do some thing they elect if it makes them satisfied, in order that people will like them extra. Christianity isn't about having a existence full of unicorns and rainbows and being satisfied on earth, its about eternal salvation

Maybe it's easier for them to be authentically human rather than trying to live life according to some impossible standard. Life is futile when someone attempts to conform their life to the life of another. All of this conforming to christ stuff is making people neurotic.

A first century guy isn't going to fit in so good in a 21st century world (except maybe in the Middle East).
