Random Things Needing Discernment
Where oh where do false teachers get these ideas?!?! Certainly not from Scripture! (Can you see the problems?)
Excellent position paper on the New Apostolic Reformation. This should help you see the unbiblical nature of these people’s teachings. However, the Southern Baptist Convention has decided to go farther into apostasy by endorsing the NAR.
Pay attention to whose music you are singing/using for worship. When they have aberrant or heretical ideologies they believe and profess, you assist their teachings in being propagated.
False “spiritual warfare” teaching includes the absurdity of “Strategic Level Spiritual Warfare” with its “spiritual mapping.” Anyone who is teaching this needs to be avoided at all costs. This teaching completely denigrates the work of Christ and burdens people with worries and fears. There is absolutely nothing biblical about it. So if you hear anyone teaching about “Strongholds” which must be “pulled down,” etc, run from them!
The Pope has declared that evolution and the Big Bang are real: “When we read about Creation in Genesis, we run the risk of imagining God was a magician, with a magic wand able to do everything. But that is not so," Francis said. "The Big Bang, which today we hold to be the origin of the world, does not contradict the intervention of the divine creator but, rather, requires it. "Evolution in nature is not inconsistent with the notion of creation, because evolution requires the creation of beings that evolve.”
This comes a guy who also declares that wine and wafers turn into blood and flesh, and that Mary remained forever a virgin, was sinless and assumed into heaven without dying. The man is a rank heretic.
If the assembly you attend does anything like this, use your discerning feet to run from that place as fast as you can.
Russell Moore is getting more and more dangerous to have as any sort of leader or teacher. Pulpit & Pen also demonstrates the long history of Moore’s apostasy. An even longer list of issues with Moore is found in this article.
Warning about a new book claiming to get you to heaven!
Discernment says that the virgin conception of Christ is very, very important, contrary to the claims of Andy Stanley otherwise.
THIS is why you avoid Andy Stanley’s church — this took place at his church on Christmas Eve.
Full coverage of the Clayton Jennings scandal. This is important to have available in case he is coming to your area — he needs to be warned against because he apparently has absolutely no remorse and he is a sexual predator! But it gets even worse — Jennings is now attacking and threatening the elders. This is what happens when churches wait too long for discipline, and when they too soon call for restoration. The assembly which has offered him a position is seriously wrong in doing so.
