earnestly contending for the faith

Have some “churches” & Denominations now become dens of iniquity?

(That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children who will not hear the law of the Lord;

who say to the seers, “Do not see,” and to the prophets, “Do not prophesy to us right things;

Speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits. Get out of the way, turn aside from the path,

cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.” – Isaiah 30:9-11)

Apparently, numerous professing Christians have not understood that commitment to Christianity is not necessarily the same as being committed to God. The question is not if one is a Christian—which now includes everyone from Sodom to Hollywood—but is he or she dead to sin, and has he or she destroyed and discarded its throne? Is he or she walking in newness of life, having crucified the flesh, and having become a servant of righteousness?

Sadly. few people can answer “yes” to those questions. Of the ones that answer “yes,” there are many that agree with the terms, (e.g., “crucified the flesh”) but those terms no longer identify what God’s word describes.

For example, “crucifying the flesh” may mean that they actually accept a reinterpretation of God’s word that agrees with succumbing to their fleshly desire. They reject the “no’s” of the Scriptures as negative misinterpretations by old, pharisaical, and legalistic Christianity—which they also reject. Consequently, there is no generational continuity of Christianity. “Restored true Christianity” begins with their generation and is considered their tailor-made view of God that continues to morph. This, the “thou shalt not’s” have become the “yes I will’s.” Continue reading

An Abundance of Truth Does Not Neutralize Heresy

I posted this principle on my Facebook page and had some very angry responses. What ensued was the reason why I stopped debating long ago. People no longer listen to reason—they love doctrine more than truth. And in spite of admissions to the contrary, they are inextricably bonded with people that they are enamored with. Thus, instead of absorbing facts and coming to the logical conclusion, they explode with ad hominem.

In case someone does not know, along with my writing, teaching, and preaching ministry, I have for a long period been engaged in exposing the unfruitful works of darkness as it pertains to heresies and heretics. The process of determining a heresy, and whether or not it is deadly enough to expose, is exactly the same for each situation. Thorough research and applying God’s word is painstakingly and diligently effectuated. I reiterate, each heresy and heretic is dealt with in the exact same manner without bias or favor.

A downside is that I never know when someone, even a friend or associate, is going to be offended by a heresy or heretic that I write about, or concerning my position that disagrees with their belief(s).  But it is occurring more and more frequently.

Someone may ask, “But why can’t you just ignore what other people believe and focus on promoting your own beliefs?” Continue reading
