recognize-and-stand-with-truthHumanism, postmodernism, and the ‘emergent church’ are all false doctrines who are enemies of God. Unfortunately, all of these doctrines weave enough truth in them so that they may seem innocent to unsuspecting Christians.

Humanism allows that there may be a god, but denies His deity and inspiration of the Bible. Oh yes, and Jesus was just a good man in its eyes. While we are at it, since God is in question, so are the certainties of heaven and hell. This sounds good for many people; after all, hell seems like such a bad place.

The ‘emergent church’ questions the belief that there are absolute rights and wrongs. Moral values depend on the situation and the generation you belong in. Absolutes are stodgy,  ‘old fashioned’ and create boundaries for our actions that cause one to be responsible for their actions..

All of these doctrines blur the lines of distinctive male and female roles in creation. After all, if there are no definite lines then women can preach in worship services, wives can rule their husbands, and homosexuality is approved by God.

These beliefs generally have no issue with smoking or drinking, and sexual freedom is a given. Ignored are God’s commands and wishes concerning sexual behavior including premarital sex, homosexuality, lesbianism and incest.

I know most Christians who read this article so far are kind of saying, ‘well…duh’ in their heads. “Of course God has something to say about these things.” The sad thing is this, many of those same people believe that God’s commands are not really commands; they treat them more like guide lines.

We are losing the ability to interpret the Bible in a way which is right and true. We are questioning God by asking, “Is there such a thing as absolute truth?” We are eroding our faith by associating with the world yet denying that we are doing so.

Christians…wake up! Empty yourself of pride and fill up again with the heart of a servant.

Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.” (John 14.23-24)

It is time for God’s people to get back to “thus says the Lord” and get away from, “In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.”

Think about it.
