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 Aberrations, Apostasies, and Heresies

Back on the 22nd of last month I wrote an article about “worship pastors,” and, wouldn’t you know it, seven days later the Cripplegate posted this excellent article about “4 Guidelines for Worship Leaders.”   If only such leaders would take heed.

The Episcopal Church continues to show just how apostate it really is.  Now we have a Tulsa, OK, assembly teaching the Bible by using Harry Potter stories!!!!  
Yep, lets all watch and discuss Harry Potter movies with all the occultism, dress as witches and warlocks, and then see how it all relates to the Bible.

Not to be outdone, Christianity Today Astray is championing the use of Enneagrams!   What will they suggest next — Ouija boards?  Marcia Montenegro has an excellent examination of the CT article.

AAANNNDDD a new “church” is going to be highlighted on the TLC network.  Just another bunch of pagans who worship sex in all its perversions by claiming it is all okay with God.

We are reminded by Jon Gleason that there is no “third way” of dealing with homosexuality and other sexual perversions and immorality.  You either agree with God and condemn it or you disagree with God and affirm it. You can’t have a “church” walking the fence.  And the same goes for all non-negotiable doctrines.

John has another article which demonstrates what happens “When doctrinal purity dies.

Jesse Johnson explains why he is a cessationist.  I agree with him.

I have always thought that “multi-site churches” were more about the ego of the “pastor” than anything else.  It is impossible for a “pastor” to shepherd his people that way.  I came across this article explaining a lot of the problems with such “churches.”

Lastly, Janis Hutchinson has part 2 of her series on the goddess of Mormonism.

Always enjoy your RAAH post. Today especially as a friend and I are "discussing" Cahn' latest book. Appreciate the link to BC, will check it out.

As always, thanks for your research and insight.

Hi Glenn,

Those "enneagrams" are similar to other occult/psychological profiling techniques. It's all totally unbiblical. Though admittedly on first glance, I though it said "engrams" like those things the Scientologists do.

Had a rare opportunity to watch cable tv lately. That TLC channel sure has a lot of horrible programs.

Multi site "churches" are not true churches. One should be able to shake the pastor's hand after a service...
