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
Therefore let God-inspired Scripture decide between us; and on whichever side be found doctrines in harmony with the word of God, in favor of that side will be cast the vote of truth. --Basil of Caesarea
Once you learn to discern, there's no going back. You will begin to spot the lie everywhere it appears.

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service. 1 Timothy 1:12

Random Apostasies and Heresies

Here we are, another time for bringing to your attention some good apologetics news from the world of apologetics blogging.
Defending.Contending has an excellent post with a collection of the various passages in the New Testament which warn of false teaching and false teachers.  The collection is followed by examples of some false teachings from current popular teachers.
Meanwhile, Ken Silva has a worth-while article about refuting false doctrine rather than adapting it.

Then hop over to Under Much Grace for an excellent article about exposing error, as well as “naming names” of those who preach it.
Over at the Cripplegate, we can take a lesson from the Liberals on how to destroy the church from the inside.  As the author notes, what happens is a “train wreck.”
One of the most bizarre claims to come about lately is from a feminist “theologian” over in the UK who claims that Jesus may have been a hermaphrodite!  It’s part of the whole agenda to feminize God.  The End Time has an excellent 3-part article about feminism invading the church and corrupting it.
Watch out for Brian McLaren: he wants to brainwash our children into the Emergent system of false Christianity.  He reminds me of how Hitler said he had the children, so he didn’t care what their parents thought.  See the Lighthouse Trails article about this danger.  The Sola Sisters have a wee bit more about the subject, so you might want to peruse their article.

Speaking of the Sola Sisters, they have some interesting news about an Emergent Church leader, Samir Selmanovic, worshiping with witches.  Just goes to show that when you leave Biblical doctrine behind, anything goes, and, with EC, apostasy is rampant.
While T.D. Jakes is claiming to not be a Word of Faith Prosperity teacher, he is taking part in the TBN “Fleece-a-thon,” as exposed by Apprising Ministries.

More information about the false teachings of Henry Blackaby comes from Apprising Ministries.  In this article Ken Silva also discusses Beth Moore and other mystics.
