Disjointed apostasy movements? I don't think so…

Tony Blair, David A. Harris and Rick Warren at...The greatest military leaders are ones who can see beyond the current battle conditions and take a strategic look at what the enemy is up to.  They understand that deception is a big part of warfare and that enemies often try to lull their opponents into a false sense of security as they lay a trap for a final decisive battle of destruction.

The Church in America is facing many battles these days as there are subtle attacks on the foundation of the church—the Word of God.  The enemy realizes a full frontal attack on the church would go nowhere, so he is infiltrating our camp with subtle spies and sympathizers, weakening our base and resolve.  Slowly but surely, the enemy is wearing us down and causing many Christians to question the Word of God as absolute truth.  We are beginning to question just what we are fighting for or what we stand for.

We tend to look at camps like social justice, the emergent church or Chrislam as separate movements.  In reality they are a loosely formed, but effective coalition, undermining the foundation of the church.  They all have the same goal—undermining the absolute truth of the Bible, replacing it with ways that seem right to men.  What we feel is right is gradually replacing what God tells us is right.  In essence we are telling God that we know better than Him what is truth and what is right.

This is nothing more than the latest attempt to build the Tower of Babel—man’s attempts to build a structure that will reach into the heavens.  But this time it is different—these are not some fringe “kooks” attempting to build this tower—they are respected leaders within traditional Christianity.  Men like Campolo, McLaren, Wallis and Warren are respected and followed by millions who fall for their slick tongues and apparent humility, abandoning the truth of God for the wisdom of man.

Do not make the mistake of thinking these leaders and movements are disjointed and acting separately.  This is a well-coordinated plan to dismantle fundamental Christianity and replace it with a form of humanism.  Rick Warren is credited by Emergent leaders like Dan Kimball and Brian McLaren with inspiring them to start the emergent church movement.  Warren glowingly endorsed and wrote the forward for Dan Kimball’s book “The Emerging Church”.  Rick Warren, who has now withdrawn from the battle to support traditional marriage and seeks common spiritual ground with Islam, a religion of antichrist.  Rick Warren who has brought in Hindu and New Age teachers to teach about physical and spiritual health through the Daniel Plan.  But still, millions of Christians seem dazzled by the success of Warren and many pastors hope to emulate his success of a “Purpose Driven Church”.

The Church in America will wake up one day.  The only question is will it wake up early enough or will she slide into full-blown apostasy and become part of the one world religion in Revelation?  We are rapidly approaching a tipping point as a church.  Only one third of self-professed born-again Christians believe the Bible is absolute truth; and a majority of Evangelical Christians now believe Jesus is not the only way to eternal life.  Can full-blown apostasy be far away?  Or has it already arrived?

One Response to “Disjointed apostasy movements? I don't think so…”

    That is a real interesting analogy, with the tower of babel, a man was using his own influence or greatness to harness men to achieve his own schemes.

    So whats the Motive:
    Back then it was let us build a tower and a great city making a name for ourselves lest we be scattered over the face of the whole earth. This one man wanted to increase his own greatness and name. If the people were scattered he would lose his influence and his greatness would diminish. Let look at how this is framed he says he is doing it for their sakes, their good.

    However this is what the Lord commanded:

    In Genesis 8:16 Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons' wives with thee. 17 Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth.

    Today we also have a command that reads in similar fashion:

    Matthew 28
    18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying , All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

    As God confounded the languages in the days of Babel to drive the people into every corner of the world. So today he is confounding the influence of these mega leaders who in a real sense are building their own towers, making for themselves a great name. This time the chosen implement is apostacy.

    Isaiah fortold this

    66:4 I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called , none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.

    As for the followers:
    Deuteronomy 13
    1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, 2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass , whereof he spake unto thee, saying , Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known , and let us serve them;

    3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. 4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.

    For any amoung us who name Christ if we have any mantra, it must be John's mantra. I must decrease Christ Jesus must increase.

    Oh someday to be found so wholly and completely lost in Christ as to have no name at all. Who is this man? He says he is no one, a worm and nothing at all. The man won't shut up, he won't stop proclaimed Jesus Christ and Him Crucified. He keeps telling everyone we have all rebelled against God and Jesus the Christ, the Son of God, The anointed one of the Lord. Jesus the Son of God, will call all mankind everywhere into account for this. He says men everwhere must repent of their wickedness putting thier faith in the righteousness of God and obey Him as demonstrated through Jesus the Christ, who Himself died as a ransom to satify God's wrath for all who put thier faith in Him. He says we must be born of the Spirit of God and then we will know if God has made peace with us through His Son.
    Shut that man up He makes no sense. Kill him!

    May we find favor in the Lord's eyes and grace that we may be found worthy to suffer for His namesake. Oh God that you would grant by your great mercy, that we would seek living for the benifits of this world wasting our lives in the process.
    May you enlarge our hearts to serve you and follow you and lose ourselves in Jesus Christ.
