Random Aberrations, Apostasies, and Heresies
While cleaning out some files this week I came across an article I printed out six years ago. The article is about the origin of the Catholic Mass, and it is well worth reviewing by every Christian so as to understand how such an heretical practice came into being. Thanks to Marie Notcheva for posting it.
Examining another abused passage, Jeremiah 29:11. I’ve previously addressed this one and how people apply it to persons instead of Israel, but this author has good questions as to why following passages aren’t applied to individuals.
Grace To You examined a few other abused passages this week:
Romans 8:28. If anyone can abuse a Bible passage, it’s Joel Osteen.
Matthew 18:18-20 A Word of Faith favorite.
Pope Francis calls Muslims his “brothers and sisters” and says he unites himself with them “in prayer to Almighty God, all merciful.” Since Muslims worship a false god, and they are not “brothers and sisters” in Christ, if nothing else proves the pope to be a false teacher, this statement of his sure does!
Speaking of the Pope; his visit to the USA was all about his support for left-wing politics and not once did he even mention the name of Jesus. And yet he claims to represent Christ on earth?!?
Lindsay has an excellent summary of the teachings of Dominionism, including similar teachings under other nomenclatures such as “Kingdom Now,” and “Reconstructionism.”
False prophet/teacher Todd Bentley claims to have raised a kid from the dead. This man gives all the appearances of being demon-possessed, so we know he isn’t a man of God. Chrystal Whitt has a good commentary on this issue. (Of course, when the dead were brought back to life in the Bible, it was just a touch or spoken word, not a lot of commands and jostling around.)
ARGH!!! Another “Jesus” movie! I disagree with the reviewer when he says “it is not heretical or blasphemous for a film to portray Jesus growing and increasing in wisdom.” They are making a Jesus of their own image, which is idolatry at the very least.
Continuing the review of Which Bible Would Jesus Use?
HT to Mary Dalke for alerting us to an upcoming event at IHOP, with all their false prophets and heretics seeking to suck in more young people into their cult. BEWARE!
More disappointment from David Jeremiah — teaming up with Word of Faith heretics to bless Donald Trump.
Lastly, I just had to post these cartoons about the Pope.
