War on Consciousness Pt. 13 – The New Age Movement

The World Teacher:

The religions of the world has always had its “divine teachers”. These false god/teachers have established the foundation for the false prophet of Revelation 13:18, who will lead the world into worshiping the beast.

The New Age religion claims that the world is waiting for another Christ, who will be a teacher to the world, who will not lead as a tyrant, but will merely share his enlightened philosophy, which the world will follow, because everyone will have been enlightened by the coming “collective consciousness” that was spoken of by new age philosophers and occultists.

However, this “collective consciousness” is nothing more than a strong delusion, which will lead people into worshiping a world tyrant. Also, the “world teacher” that is coming will not make suggestions, but will command the world to be enslaved to a tyrant – the Beast.
2Thessalonians 2
1    Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2    That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3    Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4    Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5    Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6    And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7    For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8    And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9    Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10    And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11    And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12    That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Revelation 13
1    And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
2    And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3    And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
4    And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
5    And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
6    And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7    And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
8    And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9    If any man have an ear, let him hear.
10    He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
11    And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
12    And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13    And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14    And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15    And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
16    And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17    And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18    Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
Therefore, the world teacher – the Maitreya – the avatar – The Christ – The Prophet – The Ascended Master – all of whom is the false prophet of Revelation 13, will be a tyrannical religious figure, who will be the leader of two nations. He will command the world to worship the beast, who is a tyrannical religious figure, who will be the leader of ten kings. These two will not bring enlightenment, and peace, to the world, but darkness, and destruction. They are God’s punishment to a world that has rejected his Son, Jesus Christ, and persecuted his church.

Book Review #1 – “I Declare” ~ By Joel Osteen

Joel Osteen’s latest book, “I declare”, is up for review by the Word of God.

According to Joelosteen.com

The words we speak set the course for our life. If you want to know what you’re going to be like in five years, listen to the words you are saying about yourself today.

Now you can take charge of your future with the help of Joel Osteen’s latest book-I Declare. Filled with 31 written declarations-one for each day-you can declare, in faith, God’s powerful Word over your life and watch your surroundings change in incredible ways. You will move forward to a promising future from the fruit of your words!

The question is, does the word of God support these powerful claims? Can believers in Christ use their faith in Christ to change their surroundings for their own personal benefit, and ensure, for themselves, through their spoken words, a promising future? Can believers, indeed, speak to stones, and see them turned into bread, because they are joint heirs with Christ?

No they cannot, and this sort of speech is boasting and evil:

James 4
13    Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:
14    Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
15    For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.
16    But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil.
17    Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

This is akin to the deceptive temptation that Satan brought to Jesus:

Matthew 4
1    Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
2    And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.
3    And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
4    But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

This sort of doctrine is evil, and from Satan himself.

Believers in Christ do not live according to their own will, nor do they use their faith in God to live according to their own will. Instead, they are commanded to live by the word of God – the gospel of Jesus Christ. The faith of Christ’s followers is for believing in the gospel of Jesus Christ, and this faith leads to living according to the teachings of Christ, and the gospel.

John 8
30    As he spake these words, many believed on him.
31    Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32    And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
34    Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
35    And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
36    If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Therefore, faith is not for living out a promising future, such as having a successful career. No. Instead, faith is for being justified before God, by believing in Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection for sinners. This faith in Christ’s atonement then leads to a life of obedience to the teachings of Christ.

John 15
3    Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
4    Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
5    I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
6    If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

1John 5
14    And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
15    And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

Believers in Christ are to pray according to the will of Christ, and not their own will. Prayer according to Christ’s will is guaranteed to be answered. This is the will of Christ:

Matthew 6
9    After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10    Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11    Give us this day our daily bread.
12    And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13    And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

No where in the Bible is the law of attraction, through positive declarations, taught has a godly lifestyle. Instead, it is clearly condemned as evil, and Satanic.

Furthermore, Osteen, and the rest of these word of faith televangelists learned the law of attraction heresy from Kenneth Hagin, who taught the teachings of the Kabbalah as though it were the gospel, when it is really witchcraft.

It teaches that men are gods, and that they can manipulate the higher power in Heaven through the power of their will.

Osteen has subtly affirmed this heresy by telling people to boast as though they have creative power, by taking the same claim for themselves that God has claimed for himself, which is “I Am”.

Exodus 3
14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
Isaiah 47
8 Therefore hear now this, thou that art given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, “I Am”, and none else beside me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children:
9 But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the great abundance of thine enchantments.
10 For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou hast said, None seeth me. Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart, I Am, and none else beside me.
11 Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know from whence it riseth: and mischief shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put if off: and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, which thou shalt not know.

Isaiah 42
8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

Romans 12
3    For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

The word of faith teachers claim that we can create our own reality by the power of our own will, by speaking the right words out loud.

The conclusion is that Christians therefore, should not be sick or poor, because they are gods, who are able to create their own reality.This is not the gospel, but a different religion; the Kabbalah.It is an earth-based/works-based salvation.

Christ came to into the world to be the payment for our sins, so that we can be made right with God by believing in the atoning work of his Son, and so that we could be raised from the dead to live forever with him (Romans 5:1-11 & Romans 6:1-5). That’s the gospel.

The gospel has nothing to do with men claiming to be gods, or creating their own reality. The Bible calls this heresy, of man claiming to be god, “the mystery of iniquity”, which is a heresy that will bring in the great tribulation (2Thessalonians 2:1-8). It is Satanic, and those who follow it will not inherit the kingdom of God (Galatians 5:19-21).

It should be of no surprise that mankind will believe in a false god-man (2Thessalonians 2:8-12 & Revelation 13), since mankind is already claiming to be gods.

Therefore, Scripture commands us to run from people like Joel Osteen (2John 1:8-11 & Galatians 1:6-9). God’s curse is clearly upon them.

Galatians 1
6    I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
7    Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
8    But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
9    As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

The New Christianity Pt. 6 – The “New Age” Experience-Based Religion

The New Christianity was described by Alice Bailey (founder of Lucis Trust Publishing Company, which was originally named Lucifer Trust), in her book, “The Externalization of the Hierarchy”, in this way:

This is a transition period between the passing out of the Piscean Age, with its emphasis upon
authority and belief, and the coming in of the Aquarian Age, with its emphasis upon individual
understanding and direct knowledge. The activity of these forces, characteristic of the two signs,
produces in the atoms of the human body a corresponding activity. We are on the verge of new knowledges and the atoms of the body are being tuned up for reception. Those atoms which are
predominantly Piscean are beginning to slow down their activity and to be “occultly withdrawn,” as it
is called, or abstracted, whilst those which are responsive to the New Age tendencies are, in their turn,
being stimulated and their vibratory activity increased. ~ Externalization of the Hierarchy, Pg. 2

Bailey stated that authoritative teachings, and faith, is being replaced with individual understanding, and direct knowledge, which, also, is indicative of this post-modern era. This means that the new Christianity is to replace the importance of authoritative, biblical truths, with heartfelt feelings and experiences that will lock people into a strong delusion from which most will not return (2Thessalonians 2:8-12). This doctrine has the capability of single-handedly ending all that was regained by the Protestant Reformation.

Oprah Winfrey, who claims to be “Christian”, described this same “new age” spirituality when she stated that “God is not a doctrine to believe, but an experience to be had”. For more information on the spirituality of Oprah Winfrey, click on the link entitled “The Church of Oprah“.

The false Apostle, Bill Johnson, made reference to this “new age” spirituality when he spoke this way about following Christ, and knowing God:

“Those who feel safe because of their intellectual grasp of Scriptures enjoy a false sense of security. None of us has a full grasp of Scripture, but we all have the Holy Spirit. He is our common denominator who will always lead us into truth. But to follow Him, we must be willing to follow off the map—to go beyond what we know” ~ When Heaven Invades Earth: A Practical Guide to a Life of Miracles, Pg. 80

“The Nature of God is revealed in story form…because the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy…you’ve chosen, by your decree, what you want to draw into the atmosphere, in order to reinforce that which is born in the heart of God” ~ Bill Johnson – Was Jesus a ‘Born – Again

Johnson states that Christians are to follow Jesus by going outside of Scripture (the map), and what it has taught believers about God. He also stated that people come to know God when Christians tell their own personal stories about him, and that this is the spirit of prophecy. Furthermore, he said that this practice causes Christians to be able to change reality as though believers share in God’s creative power. This is simply a different way of teaching the word of faith, “law of attraction” heresy, which is very popular within the “new age” religion.

One perfect example of the “new age” spirituality of the new Christianity can be found in the video below. It is a clear display of experience over biblical doctrine, through a revival movement where the gospel of Jesus Christ is not preached, and no one seems to notice.

War on Consciousness Pt. 10 – CASUISTRY IN AMERICA ~ By Chris Pinto

Noise of Thunder Radio –

Chris discusses the topic of the Jesuits and their history of casuistry, by examining the writings of 17th century philosopher, Blaise Pascal. Incredibly, Pascal wrote about the Jesuits’ methods of justifying evil acts — including abortion. The phrase “the end justifies the means” is called the battle axe of their philosophy, and is said to govern the Catholic Church even now. Could this be true? Is there evidence of “casuistry” in American culture and politics today?

To listen to the radio program, click on the link entitled “CASUISTRY IN AMERICA“.

Two examples of the Jesuit’s promotion of casuistry in America are listed below.

NEW YORK

The Rev. Robert Carter, who in the early 1970s was one of the first Roman Catholic priests in the country to declare publicly that he was gay and who helped found the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, died Feb. 22 in the Bronx. He was 82.

 His death, at a Jesuit health care facility, was confirmed by the Rev. Thomas R. Slon, executive assistant to the provincial of the New York Province of the Society of Jesus.

Father Carter’s coming out was a very public one. In October 1973, Dr. Howard J. Brown, a former New York City health services administrator, announced that he was gay and that he was forming a civil rights organization for homosexual men and women. Then called the National Gay Task Force, it later became the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.

The Observer

A celebration honoring the life and work of Robert Drinan, a Jesuit and former Massachusetts congressman, will take place at the Boston College Law School.  The panel, which will take place on March 7, was announced on Friday, February 18, and will feature other pro-abortion speakers.

Among the members of the panel is Fr. Raymond Scroth, S.J., who has publicly supported pro-abortion political policy.  He has recently published a book entitled, Bob Drinan: The Controversial Life of the First Catholic Priest Elected to Congress.  Also scheduled for the panel is Congressman Barney Frank, whom the Cardinal Newman Society calls “a strident defender of legal abortion.” An article on Lifesitenews.com remarks that Frank’s “opposition to Church teachings is well-known in both personal and political life.”

Robert Drinan, a native of Massachusetts, graduated from Boston College in 1942.  That same year, he joined the Society of Jesus.  From 1956 to 1970, Drinan served as the Dean of the Boston College Law School.  In 1970, the Jesuit was elected to the House of Representatives, where he served for twenty years.

Understand that the world is under the sway of  Satan, the god of this world, and that this world’s system is marked by God for destruction.

1John 5
19    And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.

Revelation 12
10    And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
11    And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
12    Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

2Corinthians 4
3    But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4    In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
5    For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
6    For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

The only hope, for the people of this world, is to turn away from sin, and to believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ, because the reign of wickedness will not last forever. God will judge this world in righteousness, and everyone who loved it.

1John 2
15    Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16    For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17    And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

Acts 17
26    And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
27    That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
28    For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
29    Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.
30    And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
31    Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

John 8
12    Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
23    And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
24    I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
31    Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32    And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
33    They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
34    Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
35    And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
36    If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

John 6
35    And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
36    But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not.
37    All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
38    For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
39    And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
40    And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

Romans 10
6    But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:)
7    Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)
8    But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10    For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11    For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12    For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13    For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Authors of Confusion Pt. 16 – Charles Stanley Pt. 2 – Stanley & Friends

The first article on Charles Stanley was a short expose on his heretical teaching, and his promotion of Roman Catholic mysticism. This second article will further discuss his heretical view of salvation, and his longstanding practice of ecumenism.

Dr. Stanley’s ecumenical work can be traced back to 1979 with the “Moral Majority“, which he helped to start with the ecumenical Jerry Falwell, a Melkite Greek, Roman, Catholic Church, a false prophet (Pat Robertson), and even included a Southern Baptist, who was also a Grand Orator of the Grand Lodge of freemasons in North Carolina.(to be fair, Dr. Stanley might not have been aware that the Southern Baptist was a luciferian)  For more information on the ecumenism of the Moral Majority, click on the link entitled “Catholics and the Moral Majority“.

Dr. Stanley has also been a ministry partner of TBN for more than 15 years, and still is to this day. TBN is a major religious television network, and its programs are aired all over the world. However, TBN isn’t a force for the good, but for the kingdom of darkness, because it is more than just ecumenical, concerning its partners. What makes this religious television network so much worse than the Moral Majority is its promotion of some of the worse false teachers, and their heresies, and false gospels. Even the TBN founder, Paul Crouch, affirms the heresies of the network’s ministry partners, such the “little gods heresy“, “the name it claim it heresy“, the “false prosperity & health gospel“, and many more.

The problem with being apart of this religious television network is that it claims to be a Christian network, when it clearly isn’t, and for a well respected minister, such as Charles Stanley, to partner with such a false ministry, which is leading millions to Hell every year (while taking the donations of the deceived followers/victims), is that he is giving creditability to a false Christianity that exists to deceive people, and lead to them Hell. In this way, Dr. Stanley is partaking in all of the evils of TBN and their partners, because he has been, for many years, making himself a willing participant of this apostasy (2John 1:8-11).

Young naive preachers may get involved with TBN, and even stay a partner with the network for some time, but as time goes by, they will hear of the horrendous sins of TBN, and will have to realize that God is not the power behind TBN, but Satan. At that point, every preacher would have to make a decision, which is to separate, and be holy, or to remain, and loose their eternal reward, and even their souls (2John 1:8-11, Matthew 16:24-27, Matthew 7:21-23, James 4:17).

After more than 15 years, Dr. Stanley has decided to remain a loyal ministry partner of the disgraced TBN.

Dr. Stanley does not stand alone in this sin, because TBN has many, well respected ministry partners, such as the late Adrian Rodgers, Way of the Master Ministries, Charles Swindoll, Franklin Graham, Jack Van Impe, Jay Sekulow, and many more. Therefore, it would be wrong to only make mention of Charles Stanley. To mention TBN is to bring into view every untrustworthy televangelist, who dared to partner with TBN, and to remain, even after years of being informed of the corruption of the network, and after ignoring all of the clear warnings from Scripture about the danger, and prohibition, of bad influences (1Corinthians 15:33-34, 1Timothy 5:21-22, 1Timothy 6:3-12, 2Timothy 3:1-1-7, 2John 1:8-11, Hebrews 12:14). The disobedience of these preachers have led millions into a wrong understanding of what it means to live godly in a corrupt world. By walking hand-in-hand with evil, they have led millions of Christians to believe that they, too, can walk hand-in-hand with evil, and still enter into eternal life.

This matter of abiding in evil, while claiming to be a follower of Christ, then brings into view the antinomian heresy of Dr. Stanley, which teaches people the following lies:

…a Christian who at no point in his entire life bore any eternal fruit. And yet his salvation is never jeopardized. There is never a question about where he will spent eternity

John 15
1    I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
2    Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
3    Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
4    Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
5    I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
6    If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

Salvation, or justification, or whatever you wish to call it – stands independently of faith. Consequently, God does not require a constant attitude of faith in order to be saved — only an act of faith.

Matthew 24
13    But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Hebrews 3
12    Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
13    But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
14    For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;
15    While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.

Hebrews 6
4    For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,
5    And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,
6    If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
7    For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God:
8    But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.

You can’t sin and live like the devil down here and get by with it even as a believer. The Bible says you will lose your reward but you’ll be saved so as by fire. You won’t lose your salvation, but there’s a whole lot to lose, brother, by sinful living.” ~ from the book “Eternal Security”

This statement is a result of confusing one kind of judgment with another. One type of Judgment is when believers, who served Christ, are judge according to their works. Some of the works that the various believers have done in Christ’s name will be tried by God’s holy fire, and stand its test, and be proven to be like gold, silver and precious stone. Some believers works won’t be approved of, and will not stand the test of God’s fire, and will simply burn up, yet the believer will be saved, even though his/her works will be burned up by God’s disapproval (Luke 12:45-48, 1Corinthians 2:10-15, 2John 1:8-11, 2Timothy 4:6-8). The distinction is the ministry works that will be judged, and not the fruits of the Holy Spirit.

Another judgment is the separating of the goats and the sheep. This judgment has to do with salvation and eternal punishment. Many people, who thought that they were serving God, will be rejected, and Jesus will tell them that he never knew them. They will be cast out into outer darkness, eternal fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, forever and ever (Matthew 7:21-23, Matthew 24:46-51, Matthew chp. 25, Revelation 20:11-15, Hebrews 6:1-8, Galatians 5:16-21, Revelation 21:7-8). This is the judgment seat of Christ, where those who did not know Christ, nor did they obey him, will be judged, and those who do know him, and bore the fruit of the Holy Spirit, will be received with joy.

Dr. Stanley is right in saying that a believer will never lose their salvation, because every believer is born of God, and cannot live a life of sin, because God’s eternal seed is living in them (1John 3:3-7, 1Peter 21:25, John 6:37-40, Philippians 1:6, Romans 8:29-30). However, this also means that Dr. Stanley is wrong, because he claims that Christians can live like the devil, bear no fruit of the Holy Spirit, and not endure in faith until the end, and still enter the kingdom of God. In saying this, Dr. Stanley has turned the grace of God into lawlessness (Romans 6:1-3, Jude 1:3-4). Just as adding man-made laws to the gospel, ruins the whole gospel, Dr. Stanley’s subtraction of holiness from the gospel ruins the whole gospel, and to believe it is to fall away from the faith, because it is a major heresy (Galatians 5:7-9, Galatians 5:19-21, Ephesians 5:1-7, Hebrews 12:14, Galatians 1:8-9).

In light of the many compromised televangelist, and well known preachers, and their ecumenical practices, it would be best to refrain from learning about Christ, and the gospel, by these media personalities. Instead, it would be best to simply abide in Christ; the word of God, and stay in close fellowship with a doctrinally sound local church. This is because people have a tendency to idolize their favorite celebrities. Even Christian celebrities are idolized, and followed without testing what they teach against the word of God to be sure that their teachings are true. The proof is that Dr. Stanley, Billy Graham, and many others have been compromising the gospel, and millions still have not caught on, but have followed these people into serious error that will damn their souls for eternity.

Teachers, pastors, evangelists and others, are given by Christ for the purpose of getting the church grounded in their knowledge of the gospel so that the church will not be deceived by the many false teachers in the world (Ephesians 4:11-14). But God did not give them to us so that we would become followers of them, and take their names, and subscribe to their doctrine (1Corinthians 1:10-17). The Holy Spirit is the primary teacher in the church, and he is the one who guides us into all truth, so that we would no longer need fallible human being to teach us.

1John 2
26    These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.
27    But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
28    And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.

Hebrews 8
10    For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
11    And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.

John 15
3    Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
4    Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
5    I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
6    If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
