Blasphemizing The Bible
"Blasphemizing" The Bible
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

I am going to go over an article I wrote back in 2006 in preparation for the book I wrote with Mike Oppenheimer called "Idolatry in Their Hearts".  This book is an apologetic against the false teachings of the World Christian Gathering on Indigenous People movement, the Emerging Church and the New Apostolic Reformation which got their ideas from the book "Eternity in Their Hearts" by Don Richardson.  At the time that book came out no one really saw the dangerous ideas Richardson was promoting.  All they would have had to do was look at the two subtitles of that book to understand the implications.  The first subtitle in the 1981 edition read: The Untold Story of Christianity among Folk Religions of Ancient People.  Those who read this book found some interesting cross-cultural ideas but apparently missed the false premise of the book starting with the subtitle. How could Christianity be "among folk religions" where the Gospel had not been preached (Rom. 10:14-15)? At that time Christians who read the book were apparently satisfied that, though there was some questionable material present, it made for an interesting discussion on how to do cross-cultural ministry. The subtitle it has today, which was first published in 1984, is as follows: Startling Evidence of Belief in the One True God in Hundreds of Cultures Throughout the World.  This should have been a red flag for many Christians but then, who reads subtitles?  But how could the "One True God" be known to Gentiles who, the Bible states, did "not know God".

Dear All,

With the Bible literacy of all Christians on the downward slide, it is no wonder then that Christians seem to think it is okay to be united with Mormons and New Agers.

Billy Graham Offers Help To Mormon Mitt Romney Then Removes Section From Website Calling Mormonism A Cult!
by SoulRefuge, 10/13/12

 

The Washington Post reported that Evangelist Billy Graham offered his help to Mormon Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Here is an excerpt from that article from the "On Faith" section: Billy Graham offered to "do all I can to help" GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney in a Thursday (Oct. 11) meeting at the evangelist's North Carolina home. Romney campaign spokesman Rick Gorka told reporters after the visit that Graham told Romney: "I'll do all I can to help you. And you can quote me on that." By Adelle M. Banks| Religion News Service, Published: October. Another article from a website entitled  "The New Civil Rights Movement" revealed that the Billy Graham website "scrubbed" a statement which labeled Mormonism as a cult, shortly after the meeting between Billy Graham and Mitt Romney. Evangelist Franklin Graham, the son of Billy Graham, was also present at that same meeting. Franklin Graham is the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

Rick Warren and Joel Osteen acquiesce to Oprah
by Marsha West, 10/12/12 Renew America

Is there no end to the lack of spiritual discernment within the Christian community? Even some of our Church leaders are showing a startling lack of discernment. And if we can't trust our leaders to help us stay on the straight and narrow path, who can we trust? On October 5th, Southern Baptist preacher Rick Warren sat down with New Age/New Thought high priestess Oprah Winfrey for an interview. Although Oprah claims to be a Christian she most assuredly is not as I clearly demonstrate ...

The Bible Literacy of Teenage Believers
by The Berean Call, 10/13/12 The Berean Call

Youth ministry researcher Chap Clark says, "I'm convinced that the single most important area where we've lost ground with kids is in our commitment and ability to ground them in God's Word." As a result, Barry Shafer says, "The church today, including both the adult and teenage generations, is in an era of rampant biblical illiteracy." Duffy Robbins takes this one step further when he says: "Our young people have become incapable of theological thinking because they don't have any theology to think about. ... And, as Paul warns us, this ... leaves us as 'infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching' (Ephesians:4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;)."
