Who Are You Listening To?

April 27, 2014

The Christian church has found itself to be spiritually weak and biblically illiterate because professing Christians are rarely listening to God and fearing Him.

Psalms 1:1-2 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

DOES TOLERANCE TRUMP TRUE DOCTRINE?

March 27, 2014

“… professing Christians today who comprise the modern church are increasingly emulating the world with regard to this empty, vain search for something they might call “religion” or “spirituality.” Doctrine matters very little, if at all, to many in Christendom today. Lines of demarcation between denominations—or even religions—have become insignificant and inconsequential. Tolerance and acceptance now trump truth and reality.”

2 Timothy 4:2-4 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Titus 1:14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

2 Peter 2:1-2 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.

2 Peter 2:21-22 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.
