Random Things Needing Discernment
Rick Warren’s wife Kay is now professing to have a vision from God. She’ll tell you all about it for a fee.
Transubstantiation — what did Jesus really mean?
The Shack. Book, now a movie, is about as heretical of a story as you can get. I know the video is long, but very educational and eye-opening about how garbage like this spreads. (Incidentally, Kent Hovind, a KJVO creationist teacher, promotes this heresy; Hovind is one I’ve long said was a bad teacher, and this proves it.)
Watchman Fellowship profile on The Shack demonstrates why the book and movie are theologically problematic.
Another excellent examination of The Shack. It’s a 55 minute sermon, but well worth it. H/T to Mary Dalke
Doing missions without the gospel?!?
More evidence proving Jennifer LeClaire is a horridly false teacher — and what a totally unbiblical mess is Charisma Magazine!
A cornucopia of Beth Moore’s false teachings. I love it when people put all this stuff in one place. The sad thing is that she’s coming to Cedar Rapids and many local churches are advertising for her! No discernment at all in the leadership of these places.
Wow - Clayton Jennings’ victims are being blackmailed and threatened!
Be very careful about getting any theological teachings from celebrities such as Tim Tebow. Like Tim, these celebrities usually have no discernment and no concern for protecting the flock.
Which Jesus does your Roman Catholic friend believe in?
The very sad state of so many churches out there today; it is no longer about Christ.
An atheist saw my article about Ravi Zacharias and emailed me about my concern. This man has also been concerned about Ravi, but his concern is with Ravi’s credential claims. He has a site dedicated to exposing false claims by Ravi; I reviewed his material and I have grave concerns over what he has exposed. Ravi isn’t the first popular teacher to embellish his credentials, but it is really sad to see that he has done this. For all his good teachings, I can’t see recommending him or his ministry as long as they don’t come totally clean; if you can’t trust him in such actions, how can you trust anything he says?
