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.

Wouldn't it be great if there really was a "herescope" which could be brought into your local Christian Bookstore? You could walk around and hold up the device; point it at a book or DVD, and if they contained heretical teaching, the herescope would beep beep beep. Actually, that would not be so great.

What IS great is when a Christian has spiritual discernment.

What is Progressive Christianity?

It can be hard to define progressive Christianity because it's an umbrella term for a lot of different beliefs. But I think my friend and fellow blogger, Alisa Childers (who was once part of a progressive Christian church) hit the nail on the head when she summarized it this way in a recent post:

Jesus (Is Not) Calling

Jesus Calling has been a best-seller, a 365-day devotional study written by Sarah Young. She claims Jesus spoke to her and she wrote down the words compiling a book. And an unsuspecting Christian community is buying it hook, line and sinker.

It's sold over three million copies, and the publisher has released Jesus Calling for Kids, Jesus Calling for Teens and a Jesus Calling Devotional Bible.

The attraction to Christians seems mostly due to the dramatic and emotional wording by using Jesus said in the first person. Young ropes in her readers by claiming she is passing along Jesus' words to her. But they can't be equated with Jesus' words.
