Some people may
ask, "Why do you feel it necessary to point out the
other religious thoughts?" Some may even go so far as
accuse us of "attacking" other religions. I feel it's
important to give an answer as to why we feature an
apologetics section. The
mission of Contender Ministries is to follow the words
Jude, who in verses 3 and 4 of his letter says this:
friends, although I was very eager to write to you
salvation we share, I felt I had to write and urge you
contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted
saints. For certain men whose condemnation was
long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are
men, who change the grace of our God into a license
immorality and deny Jesus Christ, our only Sovereign
Lord." Satan has long played a cunning game of
decent people with his lies. He started in the Garden
when he told Eve that if she ate of the forbidden
"eyes will be opened, and you will be like God,
and evil." He has been very busy ever since, and his
have been very effective.

Discernment ministry is hard because of all the opposition but it is necessary. Paul spent a lot of time writing letters to the churches he planted to warn them away from legalists and liberalists. When we follow in his footsteps we know there will be opposition and even hatred.Mt 10:22 All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.

The minister or Christian worker who has those unlovely things called
convictions is a person who seems to always be in trouble with someone.
Any preacher who professes to be standing true to the whole counsel of
God and who is not out of joint with all that God has an argument with,
is not a true preacher of righteousness. On the one hand a Christian
needs be a "savour of life unto life," and on the other, "a savour of
unto death." He must build up and edify on the right, while tearing down
and destroying on the left. The ministry of exposing error to men's
is the one Jesus had. The world cannot hate a convictionless Christian,
because he cannot, does not, and will not testify against it that the
thereof are evil. But to expose evil and correct those who love
takes a man of conviction, who is absolutely delivered from himself.

God through Deceitful Mysticism |
|by James Sundquist, Richard Bennett,
Berean Beacon Ministries and a former Roman Catholic Priest, 7/9/10|
video - Professional deception and clever fraudulence are running rampant
in mystical claims to experience God. Thus, the signature of Satan is
in St. John of the Cross, Ignatius Loyola, Madame Guyon, Carl Jung,
Foster, and in such as Mother Teresa, Rick Warren, Brian McLaren,
Sweet, Phyllis Tickle, and other deceivers of the Emerging Church
who transmit this plague. In this illustrated DVD, Richard Bennett
and James Sundquist expose the deceitful shams that prevail at the
time. They also explain the scriptural method of biblical meditation
and genuinely experiencing God.

The Shack: How the 'Christian' Bestseller is Deceiving Millions
|by James B. De Young, 6/8/10|
Millions have bought into the theology of Paul Young, whose book,
"The Shack," which portrays God as a loving, black woman. Similar
in appearance were given to Jesus and the Holy Spirit. The story of pain
and redemption then resonated with the public. But is Young's worldview
important? Is his theology that big a deal? James De Young thinks so. In
fact, it's so important that he's written a compelling book challenge to
"The Shack." In "Burning Down the Shack," De Young manages to shed
light on the implications of Young's pluralistic faith, and provides
with a gripping counter-balance to the popular little volume that's
many weeks on the best-seller lists. Exploring the nature and character
of God, from Scripture, De Young concludes that it is necessary to
carefully with "The Shack," lest important truths be skewed and even
Without being confrontational, De Young makes the case that dangers can
lurk under the foundation.
