Text: Matt 7:21 “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”

1. If people don’t like something, they can always go somewhere else and get it.

2. If they don’t like the brand name Baptist churches, they can always find a generic church to go to. Charismatic, Lutheran, Methodist, Episcopal, Catholic, Church of God, Church of Christ, Assembly of God, Mormon, and even Non-Denominational.
A. If you like to drink beer and wine you can go to the Catholic, Episcopal, Methodist, and Lutheran churches.
B. If you like to dance and jump around you can go to the Charismatic church.
C. If you like to gamble and play the lottery you can go to the Catholic church.

3. If they don’t like the brand name King James Bible, they can always find a generic version. The New International Version, The Revised Standard Version, The New American Standard, The Century Version, The New Living Bible, The Holman Bible, The New King James Version, Good News For Modern Man are just a few generic versions.
A. William Tyndale, the great protestant reformer strangled and then burned at the stake for printing the first English Bible which was a forerunner of the Authorized Version. His last words before death were “Lord, open the King of England’s eyes.
B. His prayer was soon answered. A petition backed by 1000 ministers was sent to King James which asked for a complete translation of Scripture in the English language based on the preserved Textus Receptus or also know as the Majority Text.

4. If you look at the label on store brand generic medicines, you will read on the label to compare this product with such and such brand name medicine, and it say’s "this product is not made by the maker of that brand name medicine."

5. This is the definition of the brand name: CHRISTIAN - having the qualities demonstrated and taught by Jesus Christ, as love, kindness, humility, etc.

A. Generic Christians are like those in the next two illustrations:
Matthew 7:21 - 23
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
B. One man thought that he could buy his way in by giving money.
Acts 8:18-22
And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, 19Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost. 20But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. 21Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. 22Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.
C. Some folks do give a lot of money supposing that they can give their way in and others use other things as their passport. Their Church Membership.
D. We need givers to God’s work, but givers who give because of what God has done for them, an expression of love and gratitude for loving them.

6. You can’t buy your way into a relationship with Jesus. To assume that you could would make you a generic Christian.

7. Generic Christians are not always hypocrites.

A. They are people who have been sold on the Christian idea rather than on Jesus Christ himself.

8. Generic Christians are people who have no idea what the meanings of:
1. faithfulness
2. commitment
3. sacrifice
4. humility
5. moral purity
6. righteousness

9. How can you know that you are not a generic Christian?
1. Are you what you are because of the work of God in your life?
2. Do an inventory of the things that you love most and list them in the order of importance to you. (What do your activities say are most important?)
3. Are you easily offended?
Ps 119:165 “Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.”

Heaven is not going to be mixed with generic and the genuine Christian.

The Bible teaches that, “Only the redeemed will be gathering in.”
