by D.L. Moody, 1/11/18

You can never reform anything by unequally yoking yourself to ungodly men. True reformers separate themselves from the world. But, some say to me, if you talk that way you will drive all the members of secret societies out of your meetings and out of your churches. But what if I did? Better men will take their places. Give them the truth anyway, and if they would rather leave their churches than their lodges, the sooner they get out of their churches the better.

DIAPRAXING WITH GOD: STUDENTS ARE LEARNING TO BE A PART OF A "GLOBAL CITIZENRY": Sixth-Grade Homework Assignment Claims The World's 3 Largest World Religions Have The Same God
by Bob Kellogg, Billy Davis, 1/13/18 

Sixth graders were recently handed an essay written by a history of religion professor who states that the 3 major religions "believe in the same God." He claimed the God of the Old Testament "can be both good and evil" and the 3 world religions and their disagreements have led to "violence and hatred," among other controversial claims. Jeanette Ward, who sits on the school board in School District U-46 in Elgin, Illinois, described her own daughter's sixth-grade homework assignment about the world's 3 largest world religions. The article is "utterly incorrect and false on many levels," Mrs Ward posted on Facebook. She went on to write that she had voted against using such curriculum in classrooms and also stated that her daughter would not be required to complete the assignment. Since Mrs Ward's election in 2015, she has become a right-wing burden to the left-wing school district, where an English teacher proclaimed last year at a school board meeting that students are learning to be part of a "global citizenry." Back in October 2016 parents complained about a transgender policy in school locker rooms. The school district's CEO claimed that parents don't need to be informed if their teenage girls share a locker room with the opposite sex. Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute says the so-called "faith leaders" who complained about Mrs Ward represent left-wing "apostate denominations" that have abandoned traditional Christian orthodoxy in favor of progressive views. While it's no surprise that those church leaders objected to Mrs Ward's objection. Ms Higgins asked where are the local, traditional pastors who should be defending Mrs Ward from the left-wing attacks. "Why didn't 20 (conservative) religious leaders from the community, write a letter saying they objected to the misrepresentation of Christianity in this article that sixth graders were studying?"

Damage control: Bethel Church's statement about the 'Christian Tarot card' controversy leaves many questions unanswered
at Spirit of Error, 1/14/18 Spirit of Error

Bethel Church in Redding, California, last week, responded to the "Christian Tarot card" controversy that has created a buzz in the Christian media. Apparently, church leaders could no longer ignore reports that people closely associated with the church - including students from their school - have used the controversial decks of cards known as Destiny Cards. And members of their pastoral staff have defended the use of the cards. One, Theresa Dedmon, even developed her own set of Destiny Cards. These reports seem to have damaged Bethel's reputation given the fact that they felt the need to respond with a formal statement - something they don't do often though the church is no stranger to controversial news.

The Cure What if God Isn't Who You Think He Is and Neither Are You?
by John Lynch, Bruce McNicol and Bill Thrall Think On These Things
Reviewed by Gary Gilley 

All of this if only you will apply "the cure" of admitting you are a mess and a fake, taking off your masks that hide your messiness so that others can see, and therefore, love you.  However there is a problem or two.  First nothing remotely like "the cure" is found in Scripture.  Certainly we are not to be hypocrites, nor to pretend that we have everything together.  And James 5:16 calls on us to confess our sins to one another in the sphere of those who are affected by our sin.  But we are not called in Scripture to generally reveal our messiness for all to see.  Nor is this method taught as a means of sanctification.  And certainly nothing is remotely promised of the nature quoted from The Cure above.  The authors have determined that removal of masks is the key to the Christian life and happiness.   Any other effort on our part is legalistic and counterproductive.  Under this system we may not grow in practical righteousness but we will apparently be free to enjoy ourselves.
