Leading the Sheep Toward Romanism

For several years seen a growing embrace of aspects of Roman Catholicism from well-known and influential speakers and authors within Protestantism including Beth Moore, Rick Warren, Kenneth Copeland, Randy Clark, Bill Johnson, the late Tony Parker, and too many others to list here. It almost seems as though these folks believe their mandate is not so much the Great Commission of Jesus (Matthew 28), as it is to help unify all people under the umbrella of the Roman Catholic Church. They do so under the guise of simply desiring to include those within Catholicism regardless of theological differences, even though those differences are the very things that keep us apart and unable to worship together.

It’s All About Dominionism, Kingdom Now, and the New Apostolic Reformation, Part 4

There are frankly, too many of these Dominionist organizations and offshoots to keep up with and we are overwhelmed with their fear daily. It’s enough to make you want to drop anything to do with simple evangelism and work on turning this country around, isn’t it? That’s the plan, which I believe was spawned in hell. Create Fear. Call to Arms. Take Back Society. It’s always interesting to hear how many of these organizations have “apostles” and “prophets” too. The implication is that you do not disagree with an apostle and you certainly do not question or counter the word of a prophet. Because of that, there is a built-in pseudo-authoritarian-like atmosphere within many, if not all of these organizations. God has “anointed” them and their leaders. How dare you (or I) question their methods, motives, and goals even if it doesn’t align with Scripture!

What Are We to Think of the Prophets and Apostles that Exist Today? Part 4

But here we are because we think the Holy Spirit lives within us (He does if we are actually saved), then He will guide us into all truth. We discount our fallen, sinful natures that exist right alongside of our new natures deep within us. Feelings will lead us astray. God’s Word won’t, if we are willing to obey it.

Christians need to stop focusing on things that cater to our fallen natures. Feelings or emotions – when used to determine truth – will fail more times than they might succeed. We must use His Word, not the way we feel about something. His Word will not fail. Rather than give heed to some person who believes they have been given apostolic authority or mantled with the title “prophet,” take what they teach and actually compare it to God’s Word.

Heresies Overtaking Churches Today, Pt 3

Today, the NAR is trying to do things differently. Today, the goal is more along social welfare lines. As we previously noted in our first part, Rick Warren’s P.E.A.C.E. Plan seeks to eradicate what he calls the “five giants” of Spiritual emptiness, Self-serving Leadership, Poverty, Disease, and Ignorance (or illiteracy). Notice all the but the first one are simply very general and anyone can be involved in working to eliminate those things. In fact, as Christians, we should do what we can to help in those areas. The first – Spiritual emptiness – while sounding spiritual really is not. Many today talk up Yoga, Buddhism, and other practices in order to create a sense of fulfillment and well-being in people.

Heresies Overtaking Churches Today, Pt 2

Now of course, it also needs to be understood that those who believe that the office of “apostle” has been restored would also argue that the authority the original apostles had is also held by these new apostles of today. In essence, what we are dealing with is a brand new sense of Christian Imperialism that appears innocent to most people because these people argue that Christians need to “take back America” for God.

Heresies Overtaking Churches Today, Pt 1

The movie War Room plays this up. At one point, we see the older black woman’s character praying in her “war room” (prayer closet) and she calls upon God to “raise up an army!” This army is not intended to preach the gospel. It is intended to change the world so that Jesus will be able to rule this world through Christians and those who profess to be Christian. But again, remember what Warren said. He didn’t even care if the person he worked with was a Muslim as long as the larger goal of destroying the “five giants” listed above is in mind.
