Random Apostasies and Heresies
Here it is time for another post about things to watch out for in the “Church.”
Almost a year ago I posted a link to a review of Sarah Young’s book, “Jesus Calling.” Well the book is still being a big seller, and still being promoted by non-discerning Christians. An new review out last week should be perused by anyone who thinks what Young is teaching is orthodox. Other good reviews are to found at: The End Time blog, Stand Up For the Truth, Sola Sisters, Do Not Be Surprised..., and Tim Challies.
Today Astray has done it again. In their reporting on the Ark Encounter they say that the funding for it has declined, and yet according to Answers In Genesis this is not a bit true. This magazine is not a trusted source for the Christian faith, as I have demonstrated in the past. Previously I have reported on their stance in regards to Genesis being historical, their promotion of the occultic Harry Potter stories, that they have gone on record against spanking children by twisting Scripture to suit their agenda, their positive interview with Mary Neal, author of a book about her visit to heaven, and a positive review of “The Office” TV show. CT just cannot be trusted.
I saw an interesting video posted on The Bumbling Genius blog which demonstrated just how poorly our young people are discipled in the Christian faith. Of course, I have seen older adults with the same ideology, which is even more sad coming from those who claim the name of Christ. As Danny points out, this is the modern day Pharisee.
Rachel Held Evans is still promoting false teachings disguised as Christian. She has no problem with sexual perversion and “celebrated” the closing of Exodus International. Her popularity is, of course, because she is a false teacher. Let the reader be warned against listening to this wolf.
I’ve heard a lot of young people calling themselves “Jesus Followers” rather than “Christian,” because, they claim, the name “Christian” has a lot of culture baggage with intolerance, etc. I think it is a foolish mistake, one which seems to be borne out of a “holier than you” attitude. Kevin DeYoung has a good article about why we need to keep the name “Christian.”
Next month we have “Wild Goose Festival” joining all sorts of false teachings in one place. This time they will even be celebrating sexual perversion.
