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.

WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN FRIENDSHIP?

March 16, 2014

“I thank the Lord that I have many friends in Christ and in the battle for the truth. I have really good friends all over the world. But truth is FAR more important than friendship, and it is truth that is falling to the ground today.”

– David Cloud

Galatians 4:16 Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?

STEPPING INTO THE BATTLE FOR TRUTH

March 5, 2014

“As you step into the battle for truth, God will supply all you need, and your faith will grow ever stronger in Him.  The church needs more “Davids”–men and women ready to be used in defense of the truth against the “giants” of unbelief.”

– Dave Hunt

Jude 1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

Ephesians 6:10-17 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Truth isn’t subjective

February 15, 2014

“Truth isn’t subjective. That’s an unpopular perspective today, but a vital one—especially when it comes to studying the Bible. Too many people take a self-centered approach with God’s Word. They’re not as interested in what it means as they are in what it means to them.”

– John MacArthur

ERROR AS TRUTH

February 14, 2014

“Error, preached as truth, has contributed to the delusion of multitudes who are lost.”

God’s Law

February 14, 2014

“Your table needs dusting in your living room. So you dust it clean; all the dust is gone. Then you draw back the curtains and let in the early morning sunlight. What do you see on the table? Dust. What do you see in the air? Dust. Did the light create the dust? No, the light merely exposed the dust. And when you and I take the time to draw back the curtains of the holy of holies and let the light of God’s law shine upon the sinner’s heart, all that happens, is that he sees himself in truth.”

– Ray Comfort

Proverbs 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:

Romans 7:13 … sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.

The law shows sin in its true light.

Leaven

February 13, 2014

“Error is like leaven, of which we read, ‘A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.’ Truth mixed with error is equivalent to all error, except that it is more innocent looking and, therefore, more dangerous. God hates such a mixture! Any error, or any truth-and-error mixture, calls for definite exposure and repudiation. To condone such is to be unfaithful to God and His Word and treacherous to imperiled souls for whom Christ died.”

– H. A. Ironside

NEO EVANGELICALISM

February 13, 2014

“NEW EVANGELICALISM IS CHARACTERIZED BY A LOVE FOR POSITIVISM, BY A REPUDIATION OF THE MORE NEGATIVE ASPECTS OF BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY, BY A JUDGE-NOT PHILOSOPHY, BY A DISLIKE OF DOCTRINAL CONTROVERSY.”

“The chief danger of New Evangelicalism is not the error that is preached but the truth that is neglected.”

“The New Evangelical narrows down his message, focusing only on a portion of the whole counsel of God (Acts 20:27).”

– David Cloud

Spoon fed a false gospel

February 13, 2014

“The Illuminati operatives have used religion to manipulate and brainwash their followers into believing that what they hear from the pulpit is the true gospel. Over time the senses become nullified and the foundational truths found in the scriptures is canceled out. In this state the majority of Christians never see, much less question what is being taught in the churches. The only bible they see is on Sunday morning when their spoon fed a false gospel. Being ignorant of Gods word the people are unable to pick up on false teachings.”

– Cisco Wheeler

Good and evil

February 13, 2014

“The church leaders abandoned their struggle between good and evil and slowly the people in this country began to attribute their blessings not so much to God, but to men: for many, God was put in the back seat of the church and man elevated himself to be his own god.  Drowning themselves in materialism, self-centeredness and vain deceit the church has departed from God’ truth.  Human wisdom and philosophy always leads one away from Christ.  The church began to disguise sin with new terminology.  What God called drunkenness, today the church calls alcoholism; God said it was a sin, but today the church calls it is a disease.  What God called sodomy; the church calls being gay.  God calls it a perversion, and abomination, but the church calls it an altered lifestyle.  What God called immorality; the church is calling it a new morality.  God calls lying, cheating, stealing, a sin but in todays’ church they are called abnormal social behavior.”
