Random Things Needing Discernment
Proof of a horrible lack of discernment among Christians and Christian leaders.
Where does it say that God doesn’t talk to us audibly? (A problem with this article is that she does as many do — she applies Rev. 22:18-19 to the whole Bible but it only applies to the book of Revelation!).
28 Things You Didn’t Know About “Christian” Psychology “Christian psychology” is an oxymoron. See my series, The Psychological Method vs Christianity in November 2011.
A “worship” experience at Steven Furtick’s church. If this doesn’t convince you how bad Furtick is, then nothing will; his “church” has all the earmarks of a cult.
I’m sure this happens in many mega churches which have the concerts for “worship.”
A relatively new cultic group of which you should be aware is “Abolish Human Abortion.” their whole schtick is to consider anyone not spending their lives protesting at abortion clinics as not being good Christians. I’ve only read about them recently due to their attacks on a well-known church. To give you an idea about their tactics, I direct you to two posts by Fred Butler. With the first one he reviews the tract they pass out. In the second, he responds to an AHA attack on him for reviewing the tract. These people have no idea about the real Christian faith. Oh, and they claim that they really aren’t an organization, but the proof demonstrates otherwise.
The truth about the Pharisees: They weren’t concerned with sound doctrine.
An interesting incident about false teacher Todd White.
The Holman Christian Standard Bible has been my favorite version since it came out, but now since they’ve revised it, and renamed it just “Christian Standard Bible,” I can no longer recommend it. They just had to compromise. 2017 is the year this version died (if you can get old ones, go for it!). Of course, coming from Lifeway, I'm not surprised.
Modern churches are better?
