Idolatry In Their Hearts

IDOLATRY 
IN THEIR HEARTS
Does having eternity in your heart mean that you know God and are His child? Could Gentile cultures understand the Gospel from the stars? Did God create man's cultures? Has God always been in the process of redeeming cultures from the time of Babel by placing in them a true revelation of Himself? Is there the worship of YHWH in all cultures and religions through the names of "supreme beings"?  Have all cultures always had a way to make things right between them and God? These questions and many more are answered in this book that addresses the false teachings of The New Apostolic Reformation regarding missiological methods as being carried out by many agencies including the World Christian Gathering on Indigenous People, YWAM, and many Bible societies.

2 Peter 2:1-3

But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned; and in their greed they will exploit you with false words; their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.
This text explains our mission quite well. Today the Church faces false teachers on every side. On any given day you can turn on Christian Television and view a wide variety of false teaching by false teachers. You can go into any Christian bookstore and purchase books published by Christian Publishers filled with horrific blasphemies all in the name of Christ. Videos and cassette teachings are offered on every front by self-proclaimed Apostles & Prophets and until quite recently there has been little backlash against this foolishness by the Body of Christ at large. Our mission is to expose and refute the current trends in heresy, especially among the charismatic ranks of the Church. We will not only cite the errors rampant in these teachings, but also offer sound Biblical exposition as to why these teachings are not part of orthodox Christianity.  We are honored to join the voices in crying out against the varied winds of doctrine which are blowing many believers off course.

Dear All,

Jesus Christ and the Apostles warned us of a time when false prophets, false Christs, false teachers would come.  They warned us of a different gospel, false spirits posing as the Holy Spirit and false Christs that would invade the churches.

Mt 24:24  For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect-if that were possible.
2Pe 2:1  But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them-bringing swift destruction on themselves.
2Co 11:4  For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.

These problems have been around since the early church, but never as pervasive as today.

That's precisely what's wrong with a lot of "mission" work in the big tent way; there's no such thing as "a biblical faith" that functions as part of "a Reformation movement within" a pagan religion. You need to understand that apart from faith in God through Jesus Christ all other religions, no matter how noble they may appear on a purely human level, are idolatry i.e. worship a false god that is, in reality, at least a demon.

Bill Johnson's 'Born Again' Jesus, Part I
by Craig, Crosswise, 9/26/10Crosswise

Sad to say, but, Bill Johnson's 'Jesus' is not the one of orthodox Biblical Christianity.  In addition, his 'Christ' is inconsistent with Scripture; and, this 'Christ' does not offer true salvation.

Head-LONG into HERESY

9/27/10

Bishop Eddie Long is pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church which has accumulated over 25,000 members since he began in 1987. From Georgia. He is televised to 170 countries. Long has been married twice having four children. Long has a Bentley ($350,000) with bodyguards. He wears clothes that display his prosperity theology. Long who once wore a Jewish star necklace around his neck instead of a cross and had a handkerchief sticking out from his suit pocket in the shape of a crown (TBN Sept. 7, 2003) is adorned with expensive tailored suits, a Rolex watch, gold necklaces, and diamond bracelets he steps up to the pulpit to show them how it works.  "The Atlanta Journal-Constitution published tax records showing that from 1997 to 2000 Bishop Long had accepted $3 million in salary, housing, a car and other perks from a charity he controlled" (Sex Scandal Threatens a Georgia Pastor's Empire By James C. McKinley and Robbie Brown: Sept. 25, 2010). In Nov. 2007 Long was named as one of six well - known tel­evangelist ministries to be investigated for possible financial misconduct by Sen. Charles Grassley. Recently Long made the news because four former members of his youth group, his own church members are bringing suit against him accusing Long of sexual relationships that I will not mention (this can be read by news services).

False Christ Coming - Does Anybody Care?
by Warren Smith, 9/27/10LT Publishing

False Christ Coming - Does Anybody Care? is the original Reinventing Jesus Christ by Warren B. Smith, published in 2002. There is an amazing thing happening in the land. Jesus Christ is being "reinvented" right in front of our eyes and hardly anyone seems to notice or care. "Reinventing" is a term that is popularly used to describe the transformation of something from one form into a thing uniquely different. Over the last several decades, while traditional Christian believers were sleeping, a vastly underrated adversary has made significant gains in the spiritual marketplace. In a gradual series of well-conceived and perfectly timed moves, this ingenious spiritual being has already introduced himself to the world as "Christ." And his New Age/New Gospel/New Spirituality is now accepted by millions of well-intentioned people around the world. Through his extraordinary use of the mass media, this "Christ" has presented his "New Spirituality" through a small but powerful network of key people who enthusiastically proclaim his teachings. Convinced their "Christ" is the true Christ, most of those in the network seem to be unaware of his real identity. While the network front line is eagerly mainstreaming his New Age/New Gospel, this "Christ" has been able to remain in the background, overseeing his Peace Plan to birth a new humanity-a new humanity that will be empowered by his spirit, committed to his teachings, and from which he will one day emerge.
