The blatant lies are the easiest to identify and refute. It is the subtle twisting of that which is presented as “truth” that is the most sinister deception. We see this in the growth of the Emergent theology that has infiltrated our Christian Colleges and many of our churches.
“A loving God would never send anyone to hell” is an example of how ignorant professing Christians are deceived into worshiping a “god” that looks nothing like the God of the Bible. We choose to ignore the hundreds of proclamations of God Himself in His Word that he is Holy, Righteous and Just–and that he cannot just overlook the unrepentant sin of man.
This morning at 9am central Pastor Gary Gilley joins us as we deconstruct the false teachings of emergent theology from Universalism to Chrislam to “social justice”. We discuss the importance of systematic theology and interpreting the Bible in a non-contradictory manner. Just because our flesh wants us to believe something is “in the Bible” doesn’t make it so.
But refuse foolish and ignorant speculations, knowing that they produce quarrels. The Lord’s bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged, with gentleness correcting those who are in opposition, if perhaps God may grant them repentance leading to the knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him to do his will. 2 Timothy 2:23-26
2 Timothy 3:13-15
