INTERFAITH: THE MERGING OF WORLD RELIGIONS Part 2
Copyright Loren Davis 2011
MANY PASTORS, INSTEAD OF FOLLOWING THE BOOK OF ACTS FOR CHURCH GROWTH, GO TO CHURCH GROWTH BOOKS AND SEMINARS, USING CARNAL METHODS OF MEN TO GROW THE CHURCH. The results is that they are actually producing non-Christian churches.
So many people come to church seeking God, but instead of finding Him end up getting burned and leave Christianity or the church; and those who stay is the ‘New’ Christianity are being made TWO FOLD THE CHILDREN OF HELL. Mt. 23:15. Too many preachers have usurped their authority and taken the Chief Shepherd Jesus Christ’s place.
POLITICALLY CORRECT PREACHERS
The trend today is to emulate mega pastors who preach feel good, success messages. Many preachers are preaching ‘SELF ESTEEM’ messages learned from the likes of Robert Schuller, who is an associate with many New Age leaders. Their objective is to make sure people have their ‘self esteem’ stroked so when they leave the church services they will leave feeling good about themselves no matter how wicked they are living. To these preachers it is virtually a sin to make a person feel under conviction for their sins.
JOEL OSTEEN was on ‘THE LARRY KING SHOW’. Larry asked Joel, ‘ IS JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN?’ Joel answered, ‘I DON’T KNOW’. How is it possible to pastor the largest church in America in America and not know that answer. (see: www.combineharvesting.com)
Most preachers don’t preach against sin. The main reason Jesus came and gave his life is to save people from their sins and give them everlasting life.
PERVERTED GRACE MESSAGE
The Grace of God is a marvelous thing, that God will forgive sinners who confess their sins to Him. Yet, no message has been misused more than the message of Grace. The message of Grace has been perverted to teach the doctrine of Eternal Security or Once Saved Always Saved; or in other words, after accepting Christ one cannot lose his salvation no matter what sin he commits. Along the same vein, many preachers today teach that THE TEN COMMANDMENTS HAVE BEEN DONE AWAY WITH.
John 14:15 Jesus said, “If ye love me, keep my commandments.”
These teachings have corrupted and twisted the scriptures. Because of these teachings, this ‘New Christianity’ today is not changing anyone. People are not really being born again. The modern church has just become a reflection of our pagan society. In much of today’s Christianity there are no moral absolutes. Many professing Christians and pastors are as immoral as non-Christians. They have become just like the Israelites who after being delivered from Egypt ended up dancing naked before the Golden Calf. (See the articles: ‘Eternal Security, The Huge Gamble’ and ‘Have the Ten Commandments Been Done Away With?’ www.lorendavis.com).
Many are preaching that ‘God loves you just the way you are’, implying you don’t need to change from a sinful lifestyle after accepting Christ. The Bible says that after coming to Christ we are to change. That’s what being born again is. Christ died for ungodly that we might become godly.
Jude 4 “…turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness,”
Rom 6:15 “…shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid”
The problem is that preachers and people HAVE BECOME CLONES of their denomination, their Bible schools, prophet or leader and not of the Bible and Christ. Many preachers talk and even use the same FACIAL EXPRESSIONS of their favorite preacher or prophet.
Too many have become pleasers of men more than pleasers of God, because they are weak and will do anything for acceptance. Many preachers bow because they don’t have a backbone and DON’T WANT TO GET KICKED OUT OF THE CLUB. These are not really men of God!
THE EMERGENT CHURCH HAS ARISEN BECAUSE THE BIBLE IS NO LONGER VIEWED AS THE FINAL AUTHORITY OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH.
MANY TRANSLATIONS OF THE BIBLE
Perhaps Satan’s biggest deception today is all the different translations of the Bible. The King James Version, KJV, was commissioned by King James of England using 48 of the top translators in the world. It was objectively and accurately translated. But most translations are corrupt.
Jn 3:16 KJV, ‘…God gave His ONLY BEGOTTEN son’
Jn 3:16 NIV, NASB, MESSAGE, etc,. ‘…’God gave His ONE AND ONLY son’
When ‘ONLY BEGOTTEN’ is removed, it is negating Christ’s Virgin birth and His divinity.
Dan. 3:25 KJV referring to the three Hebrew children, says ‘the fourth man in the fire was like THE SON OF GOD’
Dan. 3:25 NIV, NASB, MESSAGE, etc., says ‘the fourth man in the fire was like A SON OF THE GODS’, which is pagan language.
1 Tim 3:16 KJV, refers to Jesus as ‘GOD MANIFEST IN THE FLESH’
1 Tim 3:16 NIV, NASB, MESSAGE, deletes that Jesus was ‘God manifest in the flesh’. This totally removes His divinity.
These translations that change the scriptures are NEW AGE translations. They are not the Word of God.
Ro. 1:20 “Changed the truth into a lie.”
Rev. 22:18-19 specifically says if you change God’s Word your name will be taken out of the book of life.
These translations have covered the earth and have virtually spoiled Christianity.
(For an in depth comparison of the translations see my article: ‘Changing the Bible’ www.lorendavis.com)
THIS NEW CHRISTIANITY IS ABOUT Relationships not TRUTH; Feelings not facts. There are no absolutes.
There has always been an important place for youth in the ministry, but today many are assuming the leadership in the ‘New’ Christianity and setting the tone for the future direction of the church even though they have no experience and little Bible Knowledge. Youth in some arenas are attempting to takeover Christianity like they are doing in the political arena. Their objective is to change Christianity and make it relevant or in reality, worldly.
1 Tim 3:5-8 says the man of God should not be a novice.
OTHER RELIGION’S INFILTRATING CHRISTIANITY
YOGA classes are being held in many Christian Churches. Yoga is a part of the religious practice of Hinduism, Buddhism and eastern religions.
‘Man a god’ is being taught in some areas of Christianity. This is the exact teaching of Hinduism, Buddhism, and the New Age.
PSYCHOLOGY is a humanistic secular teaching which has filled Christian pulpits.
Contemplative prayer is repetitive prayers called mantras. These have come into Christianity. They originated from eastern religions.
Matt 6:7 “But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.”
Most of God’s people don’t recognize this mixing.
Today, most Christians can’t tell the difference of the Gift of Knowledge or sorcery. They can’t tell the difference between a psychic who is a false prophet from a true prophet of God. There is virtually no discernment. 1 Jn 4:1 says, “TRY THE SPIRITS”
Many classify being spiritual as even being involved in the occult.
So many Christians say, ‘GOD TOLD ME’. This is very dangerous. There are many voices: the voice of your flesh; the voice of your subconscious; the voice of Satan; and the voice of the spirit. Most people can’t tell the difference.
1 Cor 14:10 “There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.”
Regents University, a prestigious Christian University, is now advocating Muslims to worship in Christian churches.
Rick Warren’s DANIEL HEALTH PLAN uses Muslim and Hindu doctors as the designers of his program. Why is he using non-Christian Muslims and Hindus?
Josh 22:19 “…but rebel not against the Lord, nor rebel against us, in building you an altar beside the altar of the Lord our God.”
Hosea 10:2 “their HEART IS DIVIDED”
Lev 21:12 “Neither shall he go out of the sanctuary , nor profane the sanctuary of his God;”
Universalism teaches that all gods are the same, we just call them by different names. God is just an all inclusive spirit. They do not believe in the divinity of Christ or that His divinity is any different than any other man. New Agers are and the U.N. are universalists. They do not believe that God is restricted to the Bible. This is basically a universal belief system. 60% of Americans believe in this universalism or pluralism; that is, that Jesus is not only way. Universalist believe that there is truth in all religions; that all truth parallel. They speak of TOLERANCE, but they are very intolerant of Jesus being the ONLY WAY.
Free Masons are universalists. They want to unite all religions and develop a universal religion. This is the perfect of assimilation, mixing of all religions into one.
THE ‘NEW’ EVANGELICALS AGENDA IS THE SAME AS THE U.N., THE NEW AGE, MASONS AND THE UNIVERSALISTS: consensus and diversity. Christianity is not a democracy. It’s truths and message is not up for a vote! Jesus Christ Himself defines what truth is.
WHORE CHURCH REV. 17
The Great Whore of Rev. 17 is the apostate church. She is the imposter that presents herself as the Bride of Christ. The Whore Church preaches ‘love’, ‘tolerance’, and is tolerant of mixing with other religions and gods. It is opposed to The Ten Commandments, Ex 20:3, which declares, ‘Thou shalt not have any gods before me’, and defines morality.
THE PLAN TO MERGE THE POLITICAL WITH ALL RELIGIONS, AND MAKE ONE WORLD RELIGION.
Rev. 17-2 “The GREAT WHORE (apostate church) commits fornication with the kings of the earth (the political leaders). In so many words, in effect, corrupt religious leaders and political leaders are sleeping together. This is happening because political leaders are courting bishops and pastors to deliver the votes of their people for them to put them in power, and the harlot bishops and pastors are being paid by the political leaders to deliver these votes. The bishops and pastors who are taking money for this don’t care about truth or what is biblical, they just want money. A whore will sleep with anyone if the price is right.
Profiling the Great Whore (whore church)
v. 4, she is very RICH
v. 6, she is drunk with the BLOOD OF THE SAINTS, (true believers)
v. 13, Made kings one hour. (This may very well be the ‘Dominion Now’ or ‘Kingdom Now’ religious leaders who don’t believe in the Rapture. Their objectives is to conquer the economies and governments of the world). “These have ONE MIND (they are unified or ecuminical) and SHALL GIVE THEIR POWER AND STRENGTH TO THE BEAST (Antichrist)”. It’s the Great Whore, apostate church, who is going to put the Antichrist into power.
CHRISTIAN MUSIC HAS MERGED WITH THE WORLD’S MUSIC
Much of modern Christian music and dance has copied the dance and music of the world. Some churches are even using the worldly ZUMBA dances. There are almost no songs today about heaven, the blood, the cross, salvation and very few that mention the name of Jesus. They just say God or Lord. With the universalism consuming the churches, it makes one wonder which God they are talking about.
James 4:4 “friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
Is this really Christianity?
IN THE CHURCH GROWTH MOVEMENT, there is no room for questioning the denomination, pastor or authority figure. So many Christians have just become mindless pawns to serve the church and the pastor. That is a perversion of what it is supposed to be. We are supposed serve God.
IN THE EMERGENT CHURCH, THE BIBLE IS CONSIDERED TRADITIONAL CHRISTIANITY
Rick Warren talks about the THREE LEGGED STOOL: the Merging of politics, business and religion. Merging ideas of other religions and business in Christianity is nothing less than Satan’s plan to take over the church. Churches are being run like businesses. Do whatever works. Do whatever will bring growth and a profit. Truth is irrelevant.
Christianity has now come under centralized governments. Mega churches are now taking over small churches in surrounding little towns. These are called satellite churches. The pastor of the mother church is now pastor of all these churches. The previous pastor becomes just an overseer, an employee of the mother church. The pastors of smaller churches are letting them take over their churches because they are being offered good buildings and good salaries. Much of the time the preaching in these satellite churches is just a video feed of the pastor of the mother church. When the local pastor or overseer does teach, he is mainly confined to the sermon notes that he was given from the mother church’s pastor. When false doctrines are brought in from the mother church, there is now nothing the smaller church can do, because they have signed over all their properties to the mother church and the former pastor can be laid off if he says anything.
DENOMINATIONS HAVE CHANGED
Many denominations have the same name that they have always had, but they are not the same as they once were. They have been transformed by the CHANGE AGENTS. We still have different denominations today called by their same old names, but now most all of them are teaching THE SAME thing and following the same format. This didn’t just happen. Many denominations no longer even post on their sign what denomination they are. They are just called community churches. Because of this, no one really knows who they are or what doctrine they stand for. Most don’t care. They are just looking for a church that has the best program for their family.
Today churches have become CULTURALLY CORRECT, preaching an inoffensive gospel. In reality they shouldn’t even be called churches, they are just COMMUNITY FAMILY SOCIAL CENTERS who are working as an extension of the government. THEY DON’T PREACH AGAINST SIN. Nothing’s wrong except saying something’s wrong. They even baptize people living together. There are even homosexual churches that call themselves Christian. Most churches never preach about hell, eternity, heaven, or keeping God’s Commandments. It is just a ‘this world’ gospel. There are many big churches, but most of their members are not saved; and are headed for hell with a smile on their faces. Social salvation has replaced soul salvation.
WORLD PEACE is preached about in churches as much as in the U.N. The truth is that there will be no world peace just because we want it. Only when men are truly born again will there ever be peace on any level. Modern Christianity has become the voice of the U.N. and the Clinton Global Agenda.
Most of Christianity has become ‘seeker sensitive’; that is, they preach what people want to hear and not what they need to hear. They preach half-truths which in effect make it a lie. Their messages are ambiguous, subliminal, which are laced with psychology to ‘Christianize’ them. The lines have been intentionally obscured and blurred so their true message is not easily detected. When people leave many of these churches, they really don’t know what’s been preached. They leave confused and sedated, and this is still called Christianity.
Most people are so busy with their lives that they are not paying attention to the messages. Most people are only going by their feeling and relationships.
Eastern Mysticism is being for the confused for the Holy Spirit
Many today are saying, ‘what is the Holy ghost saying?’ They are not really interested in what the bible says. They are misusing and abusing the Holy Ghost.
How you feel about something means more than what the Bible says. So many are asking, ‘What is the Holy Ghost saying?’ Mystical experiences the Hindus and separatists are experiencing are being mistaken for the Holy Spirit.
THE FEAR OF GOD IS NEARLY GONE! There are ONLY 2 RELIGIONS in the world, SERVING JESUS CHRIST OR SATAN. Many are using the name of Jesus to teach opposite of what He teaches. Many preachers are destroying Christianity and doing it in the name of Jesus.
INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN TV
Every wind and doctrine is being preached on Christian TV. There is some good, but overall it is a mixed bag. Truth is irrelevant. Most preachers on TV seem to be clones of each other. Most of them preach ‘SOW YOUR SEED’ and are just chasing money. These professional TV PROSPERITY PREACHERS are con artists who ARE RUINING CHRISTIANITY. Some of these Christian networks have people on who are New Age or have New Age connections. Many of these networks have just made Christianity a business, their cash cow. (See the article: ‘TV Prosperity Preachers are Ruining Christianity’ www.lorendavis.com). What is broadcast on Christian TV is setting the pace of what is happening in Christian churches throughout the world.
EMERGENT THEOLOGY - CHRISTIAN BOOKS
Most Christian book stores carry every type of book where you can find every wind and doctrine. These ‘Christian’ bookstores don’t care about truth, they are just interested in doing business and milking the Christian market. Too many pastors are just buying whatever new Christian book hits the shelf and preaching either the book or some message off he got off the internet. Some preachers are so lazy they just copy famous preachers and parrot them. It seems that they are afraid to dig into the Bible themselves and preach messages that are inspired by the Holy Spirit. No wonder their churches are dead and their communities are going to the dogs. Modern day theology is eclectic, coming mainly from the many Christian books that are proliferating instead of straight forward from the Bible.
CREATORS OF THE NEW CHRISTIANITY
Many preachers today are saying, “God is doing a NEW THING”.
Mal 3:6 “For I am the Lord, I change not;”
Heb 13:8 “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”
Luke 21:33 “Heaven and earth shall pass away : but my words shall not pass away.”
THE PRACTICE OF SUBTILY REDEFINING BIBLE WORDS
TRANSFORMATION - Rom 12:2 “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE, PDL-‘Transformation’ in the Bible is, “Be transformed by renewing of your mind”, NOT TRANSFORM THE CHURCH INTO A SOCIAL INSTITUTION. Biblical words are intentionally being used to teach totally opposite of what they originally meant biblically. Now they are transforming the church to CONFORM TO THIS WORLD.
‘MISSIONS’ is THE GREAT COMMISSION, Mk 16:15, preach the Gospel of salvation and healing to the world.
PDL-MISSION redefined to what you want to do in life, your social mission.
MEDITATION. Ps 1 “…in his word do I meditate day and night.”
Eastern religious meditation is being substituted for meditating on the Word of God.
BELIEVE-The Bible teaches us to believe on Christ and the Word of God. Jn 3:16
BELIEVING has been redefined into humanistic positive thinking.
UNITY- Eph 4:13 “Till we all come in the unity of the faith , and of the knowledge of the Son of God,”
Unity has been redefined as ecumenical and INTERFAITH.
ACCOUNTABLITY. Matt 12:36 “But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.”
Now ACCOUNTABILITY is being taught as being accountable to a pastor and church, not God.
HATE has now been redefined as standing up for biblical morality.
LOVE is now defined as defending immorality
Mal 2:17 “Ye have wearied the Lord with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the Lord,”
RICK WARREN’S PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE, PDL, IS UNSCRIPTURAL
PDL-COMMUNITY means giving up your INDEPENDENCE in order to be INTERDEPENDENT.
This is New Age and U.N. political language.
PDL-p. 43 HAVE A COMPLETE CHANGE OF MIND
He is supposedly writing to Christians who believe the Bible. How does he want us to change our faith?
PDL- p. 286 ABANDON YOUR AGENDA
Then whose agenda will we take up, his?
PDL- p. 83 GIVE UP YOUR WILL
Only a slave has given up his will. God doesn’t ask us to give up our will. He says, “Choose ye this day whom ye shall serve” Joshua 24:15. Jn 3:17.
PDL p. 95 I DON’T UNDERSTAND IT, BUT COUNT ME IN
A person who operates without understanding is open to every con artist and will fail in life.
Prov 4:7 “…and with all thy getting get understanding.”
PDL p 195-196 “GOD’S PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE is all that happens to you, including your choosing the exact time of your birth and death, mistakes, YOUR SINS, your hurts, your illness, debt, disasters, DIVORCE, and death of your loved ones.”
If that’s the case, God’s responsible for everything. According to this, He even makes you commit adultery and is behind you having a divorce. You are not responsible for anything. That is totally unscriptural and illogical. This, in effect, makes God the devil.
PDL p. 34 GOD WON’T ASK ABOUT YOUR DOCTRINAL VIEWS.
2 Jn 9 “He that hath not doctrine of Christ hath not God.”
Rick Warren says he never preaches the wrath of God; about sin; about hell or self-denial. For sure, he is not preaching the Bible.
In his PDL book he says he uses 15 translations. He does not like the KJV.
Rick Warren says, ‘GO SAVE PEOPLE FOR JESUS.” Question? ARE YOU THE SAVIOR OR IS JESUS?
He’s talking about SOCIAL SALVATION, NOT SPIRITUAL SALVATION. This is the tactic called BAIT AND SWITCH, which is being intentionally used to confuse the sheep; those who don’t know the Bible and are simple minded. He talks of God. Which god?
Rick Warren has said that FUNDAMENTALIST CHRISTIANIANITY IS THE BIGGEST ENEMY OF CHRISTIANITY.
(See the article: ‘The Purpose Driven Life is Unscriptural’ www.lorendavis.com)
Rick Warren attended Fuller Theological Seminary with Peter Wagner, the architect of ‘Church Growth’. They work together with Robert Schuller, John Maxwell, etc.
DENOMINATIONAL TAKEOVER OF PENTECOST
Not only are denominations merging together doctrinally, Baptist and denominational pastors have infiltrated Pentecost and the Charismatic Movement and are taking them over. The main things that distinguishes Pentecost from the Baptists and mainline denominations are the Baptism of the Holy Ghost, the operation of the Gifts of the Spirit, the doctrines of Eternal Security and Predestination.
Examples of the takeover of Pentecost and the Charismatic Movement
THE AZUSA STREET CENTENNIAL. World renowned Charismatic leaders invited Rick Warren to speak at the Azusa Street Centennial. Azusa Street is about the Baptism of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. Rick Warren is a Baptist who does not believe in that. Why would he be invited to speak at the Azusa Street Centennial?
In the U.S. many Pentecostal denominations no longer allow speaking in other tongues or the Gifts of the Spirit to operate in their services. This is the direct result of the denominational influence on them.
RICK WARREN AND THE ASSEMBLIES OF GOD
Rick Warren was invited to speak at the General Council of the Assemblies of God which is one of the oldest Pentecostal denominations. Rick Warren is a non-Pentecostal Baptist who does not believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit; does not believe the Gifts of the Spirit are defined, PDL p. 250; believes in Eternal Security and Predestination. He stands opposite the statement of faith of the Assemblies of God. The A/G has widely spread his PDL book in their denomination and his writings are being used in the A/G’s magazines. Why? Why are they promoting a preacher who does not agree with their statement of faith? There has to be some strategy going on here.
To further prove this is a Baptist coalition attempting an inside take over of Pentecost and the Charismatic Movement, consider the Baptist preachers who are closely linked to Rick Warren: Rick Warren said that Dr. Criswell, pastor of Dallas First Baptist Church and who was also over Dallas Theological Seminary. Rick Warren says Criswell was his spiritual father and mentor. (Google: Rick Warren Dr Criswell Click on: Rick Warren honors memory of legendary W.A. Criswell-Baptist Press); Billy and Franklin Graham wrote a strong endorsement of Rick Warren Purpose Driven Life book. (Google: Billy and Franklin Graham endorse Purpose Driven Life Click on: Zondervan-The Purpose Driven Life-Rick Warren); (Google: Jerry Falwell Rick Warren. Click on: Rick Warren, Jerry Falwell meet at ‘Purpose Driven’ common ground.) Jerry Falwell had Rick Warren speak at Liberty College regarding his Purpose Driven Life, promoting him and his Purpose Drive to an audience of 13,000.
This is a denominational doctrinal takeover at the top. The A/G used to be a fellowship, but now it is a denomination with a CENTRALIZED government. Now from their headquarters they are re-indoctrinating their pastors from the top down. Either you become a team player, or the old guard will be replaced by younger preachers who have been reprogrammed in their Bible colleges. Men have usurped their authority and have taken Christ’s place as the head of the church making themselves virtual popes over their denominations. The Bible’s teachings are irrelevant to them.
RICK WARREN’S POLITICAL CONNECTIONS
Rick Warren is preaching ‘World Peace’ not Jesus or salvation from sin.
The major message of the Charismatic Movement is ‘Sow your seed’. God does nothing without a seed being planted first’. To get healed, get the anointing, etc., you must plant a seed first. It has become a GET RICH GOSPEL QUICK GOSPEL. Working is hardly mentioned. Where did Jesus ever ask anyone to give them an offering before He healed them? There is no place where money is loved and talked about more than in many Charismatic churches. These smooth talking con artist pseudo preachers are exploiting the saints in the name of Jesus, and destroying the faith of millions. These bogus preachers PREACH LUST OF THE EYES, THE LUST OF THE FLESH, THE PRIDE OF LIFE and EVERYTHING OPPOSITE of what JESUS TAUGHT. 1 Jn 2:16. Redefined Christian as being rich.
Gal 5:9 “A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.” Leaven is the doctrines of the Pharisees. So many have become pleasers of men more than pleasers of God. They have redefined being a Christian as being rich. If that is the case, what about the Muslims who don’t believe in Christ.
Matt 6:24 “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”
1 Tim.6:10 “The love of money root of all evil’
Gal 1:7-8 “…but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.”
(See the article: ‘TV Prosperity Preachers are Ruining Christianity’). Where are the messages of repentance, salvation, hell, heaven?)
SOME UNSCRIPTURAL TEACHINGS IN THE CHARISMATIC MOVEMENT
(Note: Not all preachers in the Charismatic Movement teach these things.)
--Jesus death on cross didn’t pay for sin
1 Cor 15:3 “Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;”
-His blood does not atone
2 Chron 29:24 “And the priests killed them, and they made reconciliation with their blood upon the altar, to make an atonement for all Israel:”
Rev 7:14 “…and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”
It’s impossible to be saved if you do not believe that Christ died for your sins and that His blood atones from sin.
--We are INCARNATION OF GOD AS MUCH AS JESUS CHRIST. (What they are teaching is the divinity of man which is identical to what the New Age and Hindus teach).
The Incarnation means that Jesus was God in the flesh, born of a virgin. God was his father. WE WEREN’T BORN OF A VIRGIN. This is blasphemy!
--We are equal to God and Jesus (We didn’t create the world. We are not the Savior, Lord or King of Kings)
Isa 45:23 “That unto me every knee shall bow,”
(See the article: ‘Perverting the Atonement’ www.combineharvesting.com)
Much of the Charismatic Movement teaches that the KJV Bible is full of errors.
Often many of them say the holy ghost is telling them by ‘revelation’ that certain scriptures were translated wrong. This is the same thing the FREE MASONS teach, but they call it Illumination.
ABUSE OF THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT, THE GIFT OF KNOWLEDGE, PROPHETS. Today we almost have more prophets than we have people. The Gifts of the Spirit have grossly been misused to control people and get big offerings. Just what is the Sin the Holy Ghost? (See the article: “The Abuse of the Holy Ghost).
Saying God told me, when it’s nothing but using God to manipulate and control people. Prey on the ignorant.
Hos 4:6 “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:”
In the Charismatic Movement, some major leaders have taught that the day of the preacher is over. It is the day of the teacher. Of the five fold ministry talked about in Mk 16:15 it says “Go preach the gospel.”
Rom 10:14 “how shall they hear without a preacher?
When did the Bible ever say the day of the preacher is over? Today, preachers are now taught to be cool when Bible says we should be hot like a flame of fire. He 1:7
TODAY, THERE are MEN IN PROTESTANTISM THAT HAVE TAKEN ON THEMSELVES TO BE the PROTESTANT POPES who run Protestantism, denominations and Pentecost with an iron fist. If you do not line up with their doctrines, you are boycotted from the churches. This is usurping their authority. CHRIST, NOT MAN IS THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH.
Many people are looking for a PROPHET today more than looking for JESUS. They are looking for a word from a prophet and not interested in the Word of God, the Bible for answers. No wonder people are so vulnerable to false prophets. God’s people seem so gullible and biblically illiterate.
Jer 5:31 “The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so:”
Matt 24:12 "And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many."
2 Cor 11:15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
KJV 2 Cor 11:14-15 “SATAN IS TRANSFORMED INTO AN ANGEL OF LIGHT. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his (Satan’s) ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
James 3:12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
BIBLE PROPHECY PREDICTS A CENTRAL WORLD GOVERNMENT
This government will be ruled by the ruthless Antichrist.
He will demand an end of individualism; control of the world’s finances; uniformity, and conformity. Finally he will demand everyone to worship him and Satan himself.
MANY DENOMINATIONS PREACH AGAINST ENDTIME PROPHECY.
In Rick Warren's best selling book THE PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE, p. 285, Rick Warren says JESUS SAID THE DETAILS OF MY RETURN ARE NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS." There is openly defying the scriptures. In Matthew 24 and many other scriptures Jesus gave us many details regarding the end times and His return.
Ro. 1:25 "Turn the truth into a lie"
2 Cor 11:4 “For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel,”
JUDGES 2 “And ye shall make no league with the inhabitants of this land; ye shall throw down their altars: but ye have not obeyed my voice: why have ye done this?”
v. 10 “…and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the Lord,”
THE GREAT APOSTASY
Matt 24:12-13 "And because iniquity shall abound, THE LOVE OF MANY SHALL WAX COLD. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved."
THE God of the Bible IS NOT TOLERANT towards false doctrine and other gods!
Prov 11:21 “Though hand join in hand , the wicked shall not be unpunished:” There is little true Christianity left. Jesus despised hypocrites who lived double lives more than anyone.
Rom 16:17 “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.”
Jude 4 “For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.”
BUSINESS, EDUCATION, THE NEW AGE, THE POLITICAL, THE U.N., AND RELIGION ARE MERGING TOGETHER. It has virtually negated Christianity.
WE MUST RETURN TO THE FUNDAMENTALS OF CHRISTIANITY
1. The virgin birth 2. The divinity of Christ 3. The innerancy of the scriptures 4. The Blood Atonement 5. The bodily resurrection; the Ten Commandments; the Baptism of the Holy Ghost; looking to Christ as our healer.
Matt 7:13-15 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way , which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
SAY WE ARE DIVISIVE BY STANDING BY THE BIBLE.
We may be the minority, but those disagreeing with the Bible are the ones causing division. Christianity is not a democracy where we vote on what to believe or not. We live by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God, not men.
Eph 5:11 “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”
2 Cor 6:17 “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,”
ELIJAH AND THE APOSTLE PAUL WERE NOT INTERFAITH
