"User's Are Loser's!"
Key Passage: Proverbs 23:6, Galatians 6:7
Evangelist Clifford M. Smith, Th.D.


Proverbs 23:6 says, "For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:..." Galatians 6:7 says, "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap."

I enjoy ministering(Doing God's Work) to people, because of my "Love"(Not Duty) for my Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. I want to give God my best from my "heart" with the right "intent!" When you serve God, do you do it for "God's Glory" or for "Your Glory?" As Christians(Which means:"To be Christ-like!"), God gives to us "rewards", that shall represent our works of "faith"(Matt.16:27, I Cor. 3:11-15) as Christians. Now, if these actions are done for the wrong reasons, you'll "NOT" receive any "eternal rewards" for these specific works in Heaven (You shall be rewarded on earth for these actions).

Let's look at the following examples of some "User's":
  1. A friend, that uses you "Only" for what they can get out of you(That's "NO" friend).
  2. A minister of God(Pastor, music director, missionary etc.), that serves God for the power, money, fame and retirement benefits, instead of God's Glory!
  3. A politician, that will be-friend supporters and say anything to get elected to a specific office in government or even in a church.
  4. A lazy begger, that has the ability to "work", but chooses "not" to work. They seek out family members, church members and so many more to "PITTY" them and their personal condition or circumstances in life.

"User's" come in all types of categories(Such as "Poor-Mouthers", "Back-Stabbers" and "Snakes in the grass"), so be careful who you trust in your life.

In conclusion, a "User's" deep-rooted problem is with the TRUTH! Most have "LIED", to get what they want in life. For many, they don't even know, how to tell the "Truth." There's an old saying,that says,"You Can't Handle The Truth(This is an "true"saying)!" The saddest part of being a "User", is that when you seek "true forgiveness" from the bottom of your heart, most people can't "trust" you(Because of all of your lies). I beg of you, if you have this problem, REPENT (Pray for forgiveness and give this "sin" to the Lord Jesus Christ) NOW! You are hurting yourself and others by "using " them! Again, give it to God!
