Random Aberrations, Apostasies, and Heresies
Excellent review of “Young Messiah” which demonstrates why no Christian should waste money on it. (Note that Focus on the Family has endorsed this blasphemy!)
The junk coming to “Christian” stores will now include all the marketing of, “Young Messiah.” It is really, really sickening.
A book which came out a decade ago, but which is still being promoted a lot, is John Eldredge’s “Wild At Heart.” One apologist I know called it “Wildly Unbiblical.” You might find Gilley’s review of this book to be also worthwhile. Part 1 here, part 2 here.
Rick Joyner’s teachings are just foolishness contrived to suit his agenda.
Mary Dalke had a very good article exposing false teacher John Hagee. (I forgot to note this article previously.)
George Otis and the NAR’s “Spiritual Mapping” — all part of the aberrant “Strategic Level Spiritual Warfare” movement. FALSE spiritual warfare, by the way. (I have a half-dozen books in my library on this topic!)
Roman Catholicism has long taught their people to be anti-Jew. Oh, it has supposedly been pretty much corrected over the past 50 years or so, but you can’t erase a lengthy history that quickly. The problem began when Rome decided that the Christian Church replaced Israel, and that Jews were “Christ-killers.” Of course the whole idea of Jews were to blame for the death of Jesus is absurd, since Jesus gave his own life to pay for sin and the actually execution was by Roman soldiers. I’ve always thought it odd that so many “Christians” throughout history have railed at Jews for “murdering” Jesus, when if they stopped to think what would be their position if Jesus was not hung on the cross — where would their salvation be? Yet here we have Catholic high schoolers raising the old “You Killed Jesus!” claim against Jews. Where did they even get the idea if they haven’t heard it from their teachers? IF Jews were responsible for the actual crucifixion, why rail at them when it was the cause of their salvation? They should be thankful that God used man to provide the method of death for Jesus’ offering for our salvation.
On my March 3rd “Random….” post I had a note about Greg Laurie now having a show on the TBN heretic TV station, and one of those commenting on that post gave information about where Greg Laurie is headed with his beliefs. Well, now “Berean Research” has an article demonstrating that Laurie is diving into the charismanic swimming pool. I guess he has really become a teacher to avoid.
A short commentary by Marsh West as she directs her readers to an article at Pulpit & Pen in regards to another event where teachers who should know better are joining with false teachers. Take a look at the names!
A problem with mega-churches. To lighten up, though, here is some satire about Andy Stanley and his mega-church!
An old article on the Ezzo cult, but well worth it if you never heard of them. Their books and followers are still out there.
Non-Catholics should NOT celebrate Ash Wednesday or Lent. They are unbiblical practices.
Fred has posted part 8 of his review of Which Bible Would Jesus Use?
Mary Dalke has a collection of short videos demonstrating some heretical teachings of the Pope.
One of the worst cults ever, for those who haven’t been around long enough to know about them — the Children of God. Sex and cults, cults and sex. It is an inevitable mixture. They are still around, by the way, and known as “The Family International.”
