We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. A.W. Tozer

Random Apostasies and Heresies

The following post was edited 5/2/14 to remove news with dead links.

Neil Simpson over at Eternity Matters has an excellent post about what a liberal's Bible looks like.  It has to be a very small one, and I liked one commenter's note that it is probably reduced to one verse: "Jesus wept."
I haven't yet gotten around to writing on Rick Warren, and now that there is so much about him out there I don't know if I will.  When Purpose Driven Life first appeared, I was telling everyone it was a fad, and that there were some real problems with Warren's theology.  Since that time he has gone more and more apostate, and downright heretical.  Apprising Ministries is a blog to watch for the continuing saga, and this post is a good one to start with.
My kind of Christian singer is highlighted by Defending Contending blog.  Wouldn’t it be nice if more were like him?
I’ve read a few articles recently about Vision Forum and the Patriarchy movement.  I can’t find a thing biblical about their teachings, and indeed it seems very aberrant and cult-like.  Here we have a video advertising for a “Father and Daughter Retreat.”  It seems like they treat their daughters almost as little concubines.  Yes, they are part of the whole cultic “courtship” movement.
Defending. Contending has an excellent post with a video demonstrating the Mormon belief that God sinned before becoming God.  I don’t know about you, but I want a God who is better than me - like the one in the Bible.  What is even more bizarre is their song virtually worshiping Joseph Smith.  Of course they do indeed teach that he decides who gets into heaven.  And their quoting Mormon stuff all in unison sadly shows the depth of their indoctrination into this cult.

Well, that’s about it for today.  That should give you enough to wonder what Bible is being read nowadays!

Good finds! By, which, of course, I mean bad finds.
