Spiritual Deception

Spiritual DecptionSpiritual DecpetionJesus said on the Mount of Olives (Matt. 24) that deception would be the primary cultural sign of the last days. Even some of God’s “elect” might be deceived by false theologies. “Good would be called evil and evil good” (Isaiah 5:20). Men would substitute light for darkness and darkness for light. Apostasy would consume churches and denominations that were once solid.

According to the American Civil Liberties Union, students in public schools cannot be indoctrinated with any specific religious belief. Education must be religiously neutral. However, it can be documented that when children are being introduced to yoga and witchcraft in public schools, parents are told not be alarmed.

Emergence Christianity “Explosion!”

These post-modern gurus who spawned the whole lets-have-a-conversation-because-we-can’t-possibly-know-absolute-truth-in-scripture thought are still out there, and their numbers aren’t dwindling at all. Not by a long shot. In fact, many of the once prominent voices are in the coaching role as a whole new emerging generation is rising up to take the microphones. No, these emergent leaders not only aren’t dead, they’re converging in conferences all around the nation just like the Evangelicals.

Christianity and Islam are the world’s two largest religions. With 2.18 billion Christians and 1.6 billion Muslims the world-round, it’s safe to say that these two faith systems impact, to a profound extent, social and political events occurring in diverse societies. But what about “Chrislam,” the controversial belief system that combines both traditions to form its own fascinating religious brand?

While you may not be aware of its existence, this controversial faith system has small pockets of adherents in parts of Africa and has garnered a plethora of intrigue — and scrutiny — here in the United States.

What we are now witnessing is the almost-complete takeover of historical evangelicalism by folks like Brian McLaren and his friends. A major plank of their platform is a denial of Bible prophecy and the closely associated support for Israel that has been a hallmark of dispensationalist teachings. The new breed of pastor in America’s pulpits seems to have a particular loathing of the Jewish state. They are also clever enough to stage the takeover in, well, stages. Again, Johnson:

Rob Bell: Populating Hell

Emergent Church Leader, Rob Bell, has lit up the blogosphere with the firestorm he is causing with what many believe to be heretical views on God, Christ, and Salvation in his new book, Love Wins.

The book is currently number one in Amazon's “Religion and Spirituality” section. The subtitle of Bell’s book reads that it is “a book about heaven, hell, and the fate of every person who ever lived.”

Green Religion - August 17

Planet Earth is itself now credited with giving life, and is worshiped by groups like the leftist National Religious Partnership for the Environment. Its goal is to integrate green beliefs with our traditional religious beliefs. Nature worship has become a growth industry. At your local Christian bookstore, you can now purchase a so-called “green Bible.”

When Discernment Turns Ugly

What Constitutes Biblical Separation?

When Did Guilt by Association Become Apologetics?

There is no doubt that we live in the age of ever increasing apostasy. The authentic Church, or “remnant,” spoken of in the Book of Revelation appears to be shrinking, at least in our western culture. And growing numbers of those who remain steadfast and faithful to the Word of God are becoming acutely aware of false teaching and false teachers dotting the Christian landscape.

Hanegraaff and Burge both claim they are not anti-Israel or pro-Palestinian, but neutral in supporting peace and justice. Between being anti-Zionist, demonizing Israel, white-washing human rights abuses by Palestinian rulers in Gaza and the West Bank, and indoctrinating students to support Palestinian Arabs against Israelis, their claims of neutrality appear to be little more than posturing.

Evangelicals, Immigration and the Law

(NOTE FROM JAN: Our message to these outfits is to get back to spreading the real gospel, not the social gospel. The founders of evangelicalism never had immigration issues in mind for their organization.)

Last Friday the Obama Administration announced immigration law would no longer be enforced against hundreds of thousands of, and potentially several million, illegal immigrants under age 31 if they came to the U.S. prior to age 16. The policy is controversial not only for its substance but also because the Administration in unilaterally choosing not to enforce the law rather than changing the law through legislation.

Being Known For What We're Against

In fact, in the coming days we are going to be discussing the concept of just how far should a biblical apologist go in exposing what they might perceive as false teaching by those inside Christianity and by what criteria should a discernment expose' be carried out. As Jan enumerated in World Net Daily, I fear that "contending for the faith" has often become the mantra for an ultra narrow, legalistic, and unjust form of ministry assassination by some with computers and mailing lists. Can we agree on the central themes of Scripture and agree to disagree on the peripherals? I guess not, at least in the minds of some.
