The Importance of Sound Doctrine

This entry is part 1 of 5 in the series Importance of Doctrine

We see today a constant attack against Christ’s doctrine. A growing number of people, especially among proponents of the ecumenical movement & emergent church movement, are now saying: “Doctrine divides, experience unites” or “Doctrine is not important. Let’s lay aside our doctrinal differences and let’s unite.” It sounds nice but sadly is not biblical.

 Is sound doctrine important?  Is truth important?  Of course it is!

Sound doctrine is teaching that agrees with the Bible. When the Bible speaks of sound doctrine, it speaks of absolute truth as laid down by God in His Word.
The word doctrine means instruction, teaching. Noah Webster’s Dictionary defines doctrine as: “That which is laid down as true by an instructor or master.”

Mysticism in the Evangelical Church

There is a persistent attack to debilitate the Christian Church from with in, they are not looking to completely destroy it, but to contaminate it & change it into something else, in order to use it for a different purpose for what it was really created. The way they are working to accomplish this is by bringing subtle false doctrines & infiltrating the church with many false teachers.

“There will not be any disassociation between the Universal church, the Sacred Lodge of all true Masons, and the inner circles of the esoteric societies…In this way, the goals and work of the United Nations shall be solidified and a new Church of God, led by all the religions and by all the spiritual groups, shall put an end to the great heresy of separateness.” Theosophist Alice Bailey, more on Fanatic for Jesus

Some of this false doctrines that are gaining acceptance in Christian churches are Western Mysticism, Catholic Mysticism,  Contemplative prayer, Gnosticism, etc.  We don’t find any of these practices in the Bible.

Mysticism is a word derived from the Greek that means ‘conceal or mystery’.  Mysticism is a claim of direct union with God that bypasses the mind & also bypasses the Lord Jesus Christ & His doctrine, He is the only mediator between God & men (1 Timothy 2:5,   Acts 4:12, John 4:16).  The American Heritage Dictionary defines Mysticism as: Belief in direct experience of transcendent reality or God, especially by means of contemplation and asceticism instead of rational thought.

Mysticism is an attempt to gain ultimate knowledge of God by a direct experience that bypasses the mind. The strong influence of Catholic mysticism has helped immensely to transform the New Age Movement from being merely a counter-culture sub-culture to becoming a new source of spiritual vision for the world. Catholic mysticism has very effectively and subtly invaded many facets of life without being recognized or critically examined.  Christiananswers

Evangelical Leaders & Ecumenism – Pt.3

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Evangelical Leaders & Ecumenism

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils” 1 Tim. 4:1

Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrinecontinue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee. 1 Timothy 4:16

We are not trying here to accuse people, we don’t question their  motives, their hearts, personal lives,  characters, etc. They may be nice people or even sincere, but that doesn’t mean they may not be deceived.  We just question their doctrines in light of the Scriptures, especially because our salvation depends on the true doctrine we find in the Word of God, not in the words of men.  We can’t take verses out of context that’s what sects do and the reason why they are in error. Exhortation and admonition (right judgment) seek to gently correct and restore.

I was a Catholic half of my life, most of my family still are, I love them, have witnessed to them and pray for their salvation, but they are not following the doctrines of the bible, the teachings of Jesus, they are following doctrines of men. It’s true that there may be some of them  having revelation of who is Christ but surely they are also in their way out of that system like many of us did, please let us not forget to pray for them.

This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of menMatthew 15: 8-9

Evangelical Leaders & Ecumenism – Pt.1

Ecumenical meeting with Pope Francis, June 2014

Sadly we  found that some Churches, organizations & colleges mainly belonging to the movements of  Neo Calvinism,  The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) & The Word of Faith (WoF) movement, (as well as some other  organizations), are in a great number getting involved with the ecumenical movement. They  have links with one another, and are mostly Dominionists or ‘Kingdom Now‘ theology, which believe that it is Christians’ job to take over the world and occupy or exercise dominion, imposing a biblical rule. They said Christ would not return, until the church had claimed dominion over all of the world’s governments and institutions (7 mountains or spheres).

But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; and whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many” Matthew 20:25-28

Masonry in the Church? – Counterfeit Christianity

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Masonry in the Church?

A number of converted witches are going about the country today, warning that Satanists and practicing witches are infiltrating the church — especially charismatic churches. Some of these former witches have authored books telling of a diabolical plot by evil witches to enter congregations posing as super-spiritual Christians. Their purpose is to deceive and shipwreck pastors and to lead multitudes of naive believers into occult worship.

Many of these evil witches, they say, are already firmly established in numerous churches, controlling both the pastor and congregation and causing great confusion, wickedness, divorce — even death. We have received many letters in our office from people who say they believe their pastor must be under some kind of demonic influence — and I believe many of these letters are very legitimate.

Pastor David Wilkerson, March 5, 1990
