We all get fed up with the overwhelming negatives that bombard us from time to time during each year. We often fail to see God's overall plan. That plan includes a war we are all born into, a war that always has a set outcome if we realize this. Failing to realize this leaves us at a disadvantage in life.
    Problems can be amplified in proportion to our lack of focus.
    There are many that would advise you do this or do that. If you allow anyone to get your eyes off Christ by getting you to focus on yourself to get or keep saved, you're headed into unnecessary work -Matthew 11:28-30 "Come unto me.(Christ), all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."-Ephesians 2:7-10.
    And the way not to lose heart in the midst of overwhelming difficulties facing you -2Corinthians 4:18 "...we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen..."-So do it! Start by reading the subject on Creation/Evolution. It will lift your faith focus to God. Do it! You're in a battle and you need strong ammunition. And part of that ammunition is to take time for your heart.
    Hebrews 7:25,26 "Wherefore-HE- is able also to save them to the 'uttermost'-(original is 'all complete and perfect eternally', or 'to the end')-that come unto God by him, seeing he ever lives to 'make intercession'.(original Greek is 'to keep hitting the mark').for them." 
    A Christian's creed by Trinity Aldous, no doubt inspired from the above scriptures said by and about Jesus: "I will stand for you. I will fight for you. I will carry this. You rest!" 
    Forget your feeble attempts to overcome. Without Christ, you just can't do it. Why? You have no idea of the incredibly powerful being whom you are going against. You don't have a hope on your own -John 15:5 ".....for without me ye can do nothing."
    So, He's finished all the work for us! IT IS FINISHED!! You can rest!! -John 17:4; 19:30. And He'll do the same with your fleshly weaknesses -Ephesians 2:10: 3:20.

False ministers emphasize a message of hope for this life and say little effective regarding your reward in eternity -1Thessalonians 2:19 "For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?" 1Corinthians 15:19 "If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable."

They may emphasize that they "have dominion" over your faith, rather than being a servant, a helper of your joy and building up any faith you already have -2Corinthians 1:24 "Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy. For by faith ye stand." Philippians 1:25 "And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith." Jude 1:20 "But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost."
    We build ourselves up not by adhering to a religious bunch of do's and don'ts to the point of thanksgiving on your part -Colossians 2:7 "Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving."
    A false minister will tell you what you have to do (rules and regulations) to get and keep right with God. He'll make you think that the law involving the ten commandments was for all of God's people for all time. With this, your conscience will always be telling you that you've "never done it well enough" and you'll feel inadequate and with something lacking, just as the young man who came to Christ - talked about above. How is it that you feel in your heart from what you have heard where you have been going and learning? 
    Just ask yourself: "Am I really abounding in the joy of the Lord?" Is life better for you? If so, great! Is it confusion, disorientation, worry, apprehension and depression mixed in with a bit of hopelessness with you, or Galatians 5:22,23.
    A false minister's.(and a true one's).fruit is you!-How are you feeling?
    A true minister will want your joy to be full -1John 1:4 And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full."
    A true minister will tell you your identity in Christ, that you are holy, righteous and perfect. A true minister will be busy building up grace in you -2Corinthians 8:6 "Insomuch that we desired Titus, that as he had begun, so he would also finish in you the same grace also." Ephesians 4:29 "Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers." Acts 20:32 "And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified."
    He'll move you into becoming more stable through his preaching about what Jesus Christ did to make this possible -Romans 16:25 "Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began." Colossians 2:2 "That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ."
    False ministers will tell you to get out of your life that which was already put out of your life by the blood of Jesus. 
    A false minister will build your sin conscience by focusing your mind on what you must be working on to be right with God and will avoid or minimize building awareness or conscience of Christ and your confidence therein -Hebrews 6:18,19 "That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us; which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil." Hebrews 10:18,19,20,22 "Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.(because His one offering covers sin for all time in the past, present and future. That's why sin no longer counts and we can have boldness and confidence in living in a relationship with God). Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus...By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh...Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water."....continues
