Test All Things Pt. 6 – The Founding Fathers of America

founding-fathers

Is America rooted in the gospel of Jesus Christ?

&

Where the founding Fathers of America believers in the gospel, and the God of the Bible?

These questions are important, because the average Christian is taught to think about the founding fathers, and the American revolution, as though both are rotted in Christianity. Many are also taught that Christian political activism, and its war against the dominate liberal culture of America, is their Christian duty in America.

A quote from Thomas Paine, one of the founding fathers, and the author of “Common Sense” and “The Age of Reason” proves that the claim of America being a Christian country, that was founded by Christians, should not be trusted, but further examined, because below is a clear, and bold, rejection of Jesus Christ, and the gospel.

The Age of Reason, page 111 & 112

It is not the existence, or non-existence, of the persons that I trouble myself about; it is the fable of Jesus Christ, as told in the New Testament, and the wild and visionary doctrine raised thereon, against which I contend. The story, taking it as it is told, is blasphemously obscene. It gives an account of a young woman engaged to be married, and while under this engagement she is, to speak plain language, debauched by a ghost, under the thomas paineimpious pretence (Luke, chap. i., ver. 35), that “the Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee.” Notwithstanding which, Joseph afterward marries her, cohabits with her as his wife, and in his turn rivals the ghost. This is putting the story into intelligible language, and when told in this manner, there is not a priest but must be ashamed to own it.*

*Mary, the supposed virgin-mother of Jesus, had several other children, sons and daughters. See Matthew, chap. xiii, verses 55, 56.
Obscenity in matters of faith, however wrapped up, is always a token of fable and imposture; for it is necessary to our serious
belief in God that we do not connect it with stories that run, as this does, into ludicrous interpretations. This story is upon the face of
it, the same kind of story as that of Jupiter and Leda, or Jupiter and Europa, or any of the amorous adventures of Jupiter; and shows, as
is already stated in the former part of the Age of Reason, that the Christian faith is built upon the heathen mythology.

How important is Thomas Paine?

Another founding father, John Adams, stated Paine’s importance in this way:

Without the pen of the author of Common Sense, the sword of Washington would have been raised in vain. [5]

In his book, “The age of Reason”, Paine openly rejected the gospel of Jesus Christ, and affirmed Deism as the true religion. Thomas Jefferson, and John Adams, were also Deists.

The founding fathers of America established the American Constitution, which many American Christians have been deceived by. The deception is the belief that God wants Christians, and the common citizens, to revolt against tyrants, such as the king of England, and anyone who tries to change the constitution.

Does God want the common citizens to rebel against those in authority?

Exodus 22

28    “You shall not revile God, nor curse a ruler of your people.

Does Christ want his followers to rebel against their oppressors.

Luke 20

21    Then they asked Him, saying, “Teacher, we know that You say and teach rightly, and You do not show personal favoritism, but teach the way of God in truth:
22    Is it lawful for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?”
23    But He perceived their craftiness, and said to them, “Why do you test Me?
24    Show Me a denarius. Whose image and inscription does it have?” They answered and said, “Caesar’s.”
25    And He said to them, “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”

Romans 13

1    Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.
2    Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.
3    For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same.
4    For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.
5    Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake.
6    For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing.
7    Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.

1Peter 4

11    Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul,
12    having your conduct honorable among the Gentiles, that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by your good works which they observe, glorify God in the day of visitation.
13    Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake, whether to the king as supreme,
14    or to governors, as to those who are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of those who do good.
15    For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men —
16    as free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice, but as bondservants of God.
17    Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.
18    Servants, be submissive to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the harsh.
19    For this is commendable, if because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongfully.
20    For what credit is it if, when you are beaten for your faults, you take it patiently? But when you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is commendable before God.
21    For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps:
22    ” Who committed no sin, Nor was deceit found in His mouth”;
23    who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously;
24    who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness — by whose stripes you were healed.
25    For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.

1Timothy 6

1    Let as many bondservants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honor, so that the name of God and His doctrine may not be blasphemed.
2    And those who have believing masters, let them not despise them because they are brethren, but rather serve them because those who are benefited are believers and beloved. Teach and exhort these things.

Indeed, the founding fathers of America has led many Christians astray during the time of the revolution. However, they have been dead for almost two hundred years. Therefore, Christians are not being led astray by the founding fathers today. Instead, those who are still promoting the idea that America is a Christian nation, that was founded by Christians, are the real problem in the church. They must be corrected, because they are misleading, and confusing Christians throughout the church in America. Also, some, such as David Barton, Peter Lilback, and Kirk Cameron, have dedicated themselves to deceiving Christ’s church in America into following a false Christianity, which is a nationalist cult, which claims to be Christianity, but is really just a, dominionist, social gospel. According to Scripture, these kind of people must be marked, and avoided.

Romans 16

17    Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them.
18    For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple.
19    For your obedience has become known to all. Therefore I am glad on your behalf; but I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil.

Little Horn Pt. 3

eucharist

The kingdom of the “little horn”, which came after the rise, and fall, of Medo-Persia, Greece, and pagan Rome, which are the kingdoms of silver, bronze, and iron, of Daniel’s prophecy (Daniel 2:27-45), is the Holy Roman Empire. The capital of the empire is Rome, which has been known as “the city of seven hills” throughout history. The religion of Rome, which is Roman Catholicism, ruled over the empire, and was used by Satan as a weapon against the gospel of Jesus Christ, his church, and the Jewish people, throughout its reign. This religious persecution has killed approximately fifty million people by way of its inquisitions, and crusades against Jews, Christians, and everyone who refused to submit t0 the religion of Rome.

Daniel 8

9    And out of one of them came a little horn which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the Glorious Land.
10    And it grew up to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and some of the stars to the ground, and trampled them.
11    He even exalted himself as high as the Prince of the host; and by him the daily sacrifices were taken away, and the place of His sanctuary was cast down.
12    Because of transgression, an army was given over to the horn to oppose the daily sacrifices; and he cast truth down to the ground. He did all this and prospered.

The religion of Rome carried out the work of Satan, according to Revelation chapter 12, by claiming to be the church of Jesus Christ, and converting the European nations to a false religion that contradicted the gospel of Christ. During this time, the Bible was outlawed, and to be found with a Bible was punishable by death. The false religion of Rome was a, mystical, Gregor13sacramental religion, which claimed to continue the work of Christ by constantly atoning for the people’s sins, and even claiming that the priests were able to turn the bread and wine into the body, and blood, of Christ, without changing the appearance of the sacrament. In this way, Christ was to be continually offered, again, and again, for the people’s sins. This doctrine contradicts the warning from Scripture that teaches that Christ was to be offered once, and for all, for the sins of the people, and those who attempt to offer him up again cannot be forgiven, or restored to repentance. Therefore, this heresy of Rome serves to harden people to the true gospel, and prevent them from being saved by it.

Hebrews 10

4    For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit,
5    and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come,
6    if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.
7    For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God;
8    but if it bears thorns and briers, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.

Hebrews 3

12    Beware, 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 “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

Galatians 5

19    Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,
20    idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies,
21    envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Rome’s religion has not only redefined Christ’s atonement, but it has changed the gospel of salvation by God’s grace, through faith in Jesus, to a works based religion, which also prevents people from believing the truth. This is done by redefining the order of salvation, and justification by faith. The Biblical order of salvation, and justification by faith is stated below.

  • Election by God, the Father, before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:3-11).
  • Called, and drawn, by God, the Father, and taught by him, through the preaching of the gospel (John 6:44-45, Matthew 11:25-27).
  • Regenerated by the word of God, and the Holy Spirit (John 3:3-8, Romans 10:14-17, Ephesians 2:1-6, John 15:3, 1Peter 1:23-25).
  • Justification through repentance & believing the good news of salvation (John 6:34-40, Romans 3:19-26, Mark 1:15, Romans 10:6-13).
  • Sanctification through abiding in the teachings of Scripture, and not the Old Covenant law, nor man-made traditions (John 15:1-17, Galatians 3:22-27, Colossians 2:4-23, 2Peter 1:16-21).
  • Glorification when Jesus returns to raise his people from the dead to reign with him forever (1Corinthians chp. 15, Romans 6:3-8, 1Thessalonians 4:13-18, Revelation 20:4-6).

Rome’s false order of salvation does not justify sinners until the sinners have finished paying of their sins in purgatory, as seen below.

  • Baptism removes original sin from converts, and puts them in a right relationship with God.
  • Confirmation is when converts receive the Holy Spirit by the laying on of hands, and is also when they receive a patron saint into their lives, which is the equivalent of a spirit guide in occult religions.
  • The Eucharist is the sacrament, which is stated above, that converts partake of for the purpose of receiving forgiveness for venial sins, which are slight and pardonable sins.
  • Penance is confession of sins to a priest to receive forgiveness or punishment for sins.
  • Extreme unction is the anointing of dying converts for the purpose of preparing their souls for Heaven.
  • Cleansing by fire is purgatory, wherein the converts are to have their sins purged for an indefinite amount of time before entering Heaven.
  • Justification is when the converts finally is released from purgatory, and enter Heaven.

The religion of Rome has made its priests modern day pharisees throughout the church age by way of its false teachings, its hypocrisy, its exaltation of priests, and its greed.

Matthew 23

4    For they bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.
5    But all their works they do to be seen by men. They make their phylacteries broad and enlarge the borders of their garments.
6    They love the best places at feasts, the best seats in the synagogues,
7    greetings in the marketplaces, and to be called by men, ‘Rabbi, Rabbi.’
bxvi-calendar38    But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi’; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethren.9    Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven.
10    And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ.
11    But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant.
12    And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.
13    “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.
14    Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. Therefore you will receive greater condemnation.
15    “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.
16    “Woe to you, blind guides, who say, ‘Whoever swears by the temple, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the temple, he is obliged to perform it.’
17    Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gold or the temple that sanctifies the gold?
18    And, ‘Whoever swears by the altar, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gift that is on it, he is obliged to perform it.’
19    Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gift or the altar that sanctifies the gift?
20    Therefore he who swears by the altar, swears by it and by all things on it.
21    He who swears by the temple, swears by it and by Him who dwells in it.22    And he who swears by heaven, swears by the throne of God and by Him who sits on it.
23    “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone.
24    Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!
25    “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence.
26    Blind Pharisee, first cleanse the inside of the cup and dish, that the outside of them may be clean also.worship of the dead
27    “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.
28    Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.
29    “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous
,30    and say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.’
31    “Therefore you are witnesses against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets.
32    Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers’ guilt.
33    Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell?
34    Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes: some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city,
35    that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar.

Crackdown on Liberty Pt. 14 – Drones used to Hunt Down American on US Soil

drone_tx700

Express

POLICE plan to use spy drones in the hunt for a Rambo-style ex-soldier and policeman who has murdered three people and vowed to kill again.

They believe burly, heavily-armed Christopher Dorner is holed-up in the wilderness of California’s snow-capped San Bernardino mountains 80 miles east of Los Angeles.

The burnt-out shell of his pick-up truck was discovered in the nearby resort of Big Bear, where residents and tourists ex-soldierhave been warned to stay indoors as the search continues.

Yesterday, as a task force of 125 officers, some riding Snowcats in the rugged terrain, continued their search, it was revealed that Dorner has become the first human target for remotely-controlled airborne drones on US soil.

A senior police source said: “The thermal imaging cameras the drones use may be our only hope of finding him. On the ground, it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack.”

Asked directly if drones have already been deployed, Riverside Police Chief Sergio Diaz, who is jointly leading the task force, said: “We are using all the tools at our disposal.”

The use of drones was later confirmed by Customs and Border Patrol spokesman Ralph DeSio, who revealed agents have been prepared for Dorner to make a dash for the Mexican border since his rampage began.

Drones are used by the Obama administration, with the guidance of the C.I.A., to hunt down, and kill people, in foreign countries, and they are now being used to hunt down Americans, on US soil. America has never needed drones to capture criminals, but scare tactics, and pragmatism, are leading the way in building a totalitarian federal government, just as the 911 tragedy paved the way for an increase in extreme security tactics for protecting the country from terrorists. The building of this totalitarian state can be seen in the government’s access to civilian’s emails, and phone conversations, under the Bush administration, Obama’s private army proposed in “The GIVE Act“, the “NDAA for Fiscal Year 2012“, which allows Americans to be detained indefinitely for crimes that have not been committed, the Obama administration’s labeling Christians as possible “Domestic Terrorists“, Obama’s fight for “Gun Control” that only serves to disarm law-abiding citizens, and “Civilization Jihad within The US Government“.

Changes are taking place in America at a fast pace, and the country has 4 more years to be fooled by a charismatic president, who claims to act in the best interests of the country, but actually works in favor of globalists.

If one’s hope is in this world, and one’s desire is to reclaim the country for God, through civil law, and contending against social issues, then disappointment is inevitable, because the times we live in are the last days, according to Scripture, and the world is now living under great sorrows (2Timothy 3:1, Hebrews 1:2, Matthew 24:6-8). Furthermore, the time will come when Christ returns, and judges this world in righteousness, and establish his kingdom on earth (Matthew 24:29-31, Revelation 19:11-16, Revelation 20:4-6). Therefore, one’s hope should be in Christ’s return, and not this sinful world (1John 2:15-17).

The only thing that mankind needs in this world, is that which Christ came to give to it, which is the gospel of Jesus Christ, which saves repentant sinners from their sins, and God’s coming wrath on this world.

Isaiah 59

1    Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear.
2     But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear.

Romans 5

12    Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned —
18    Therefore, as through one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life.
19    For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.
20    Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more,
21    so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Mark 1

15 “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”

John 3

16    For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
17    For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
18    “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19    And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20    For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
21    But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
35    The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into His hand.
36    He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”

Romans 10

6    But the righteousness of faith speaks in this way, “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’ ” (that is, to bring Christ down from above)
7    or, ” ‘Who will descend into the abyss?’ ” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).
8    But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach):
9    that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
10    For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11    For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.”
12    For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him.
13    For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.”

Radical Takeover Pt. 5 – Rome’s Social Justice & Communism

SocialJustice-300x199

The oldest report of communism can be found in the writings of the Greek philosopher, Plato, and has been both implemented and perfected by the Jesuit order of the Roman Catholic church. The resurrection of communism took place in Paraguay of South America in the 17th, and 18th, century, in what is known as the Jesuit Reductions of Paraguay. The Jesuit Reductions were brought about because of Romes interest in making Catholicism the dominate religion of the indigenous region. At the same time, the Spanish colonies were enslaving the natives, and no conversions to Catholicism were taking place, nor were their any clergymen who spoke the language of the natives. To solve this problem, the Jesuits decided to employ radical conversion tactics to win over the natives to the religion of Rome, such as promising freedom from slavery, and equal status with Spaniard colonists, if they would agree to convert to Catholicism.

Within a short time, the number of converts numbered in the tens of thousands, and continued to grew exponentially. These converts lived in colonies controlled by Jesuits, who enforced communism as their form of governance. This fact is also affirmed by Roman Catholic history, as stated below:

NewAdvent.Org

The economic system of the Reductions

The economic basis was a sort of communism, which, however differed materially from the modern system which bears the same name, and was essentially theocratic. “The Jesuits”, writes Gelpi y Ferro, “realized in reduccionestheir Christian commonwealth all that is good and nothing that is bad in the plans of modern Socialists and Communists.” The land and all that stood upon it was the property of the community. The land was apportioned among the caciques, who allotted it to the families under them. Agricultural instruments and draught-cattle were loaned from the common supply. No one was permitted to sell his plot of land or his house, called abamba, i.e. “own possession.”

The communist regime of the Jesuits has also been affirmed by the following author:

The Revolutionary Movement – A Diagnosis of World Disorders by J. Findlater (1933)

jesuitcommunism1jesuitcommunism2jesuitcommunism3

Giovanni Battista Nicolini’s History of the Jesuits (1854) P. 303

When once the Jesuits had raised up a generation so devoted and obedient, they then brought into operation their system of government, and made a successful attempt to realise that republic preconceived of old by Plato, and which, with perhaps more interested views is held out to us by the Socialists of our own day. In fact, their form of a republic was nothing else than that Communism which the famous Cabet is now trying to establish in nearly the same regions; the only difference being, that the Jesuits substituted themselves for the state or community.

In the 19th century, the Jesuit philosopher, Luigi Taparelli, who coined the term “social justice”, implemented the philosophy of Thomas Aquinas to be the voice of Rome in regards to the social changes that were taking place. Taparelli’s writings heavily influenced Pope Leo XIII’s 1891 encyclical, Rerum Novarum, which was an open letter that addressed the condition of the working classes, and amounted to the affirmation of socialism, as opposed to the traditional approach to communism, wherein private property is excluded.  Out of this Catholic Socialist’s philosophy has come a theology of work, which is currently being taught to Roman Catholics in the West. For more information on Rerum Novarum, click on the link entitled “Rerum Novarum – Catholic Social Teaching“.

This teaching on social justice can also be seen in the 20th century with the rise of “Liberation Theology“, which was started by the Dominican Priest, Gustavo Gutiérrez Merino., who attempted to reinvent the gospel of salvation into a more earth-based, works based, salvation, which is not centered on salvation from the bandage to sin, and the wrath of God, but, instead, is centered in the troubles, and injustices, of the poor, wherein converts must work to save the world from the plight of poverty, and oppression.

Aspects of the “social justice” philosophy can be seen today, such as “The Collective Salvation of the Superior Group” mentality, which can be seen in fanatical religious groups, such as the New Apostolic Reformation, who have a strong emphasis on liberation theology, and even dominionism. Another would be IB’s “World Peace” Indoctrination, wherein student around the world are being taught how to be world citizens, who work together for world peace. Alice Bailey & The Christian World Servers are yet another example of this due to the fact that they claim to be working together for the good of mankind. In this way, All Roads Lead to Rome for the good of mankind, because all religions, and even Protestant leaders, are coming into union with Rome for this very purpose, and is building a dominate world church, which author, Brannon Hows calls a “Religious Trojan Horse“.

These radical views of communism, and “social justice” are rooted in Roman Catholic philosophers for the intentions of advancing the kingdom of Rome, and not the good of mankind. Though Rome promises peace, its goals are deception, and enslavement for the world, just as it enslaved the Holy Roman Empire. Those who are seducing, and deceived by its teachings, and false hope for world peace, will be greatly disappointed.

1Thessalonians 5

1    But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you.
2    For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.
3    For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.

Daniel 9

27     Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, Even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.”

Revelation 17

1    Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters,
2    with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”
3    So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4    The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.
5    And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6    I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement.
7    But the angel said to me, “Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns.
8    The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
9    “Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits.
10    There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time.
11    The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition.
12    “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast.
13    These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast.
14    These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”
15    Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues.
16    And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire.
17    For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled.
18    And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.”

2Thessalonians 2

1    Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you,
2    not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come.
3    Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,
4    who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
5    Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things?
6    And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time.
7    For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.
8    And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.
9    The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,
10    and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11    And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,
12    that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Test All Things Pt. 5 – Cult Leaders & their Followers

cultleaders

The minds of most people have not been trained to think critically about the groups that they follow, so that they are able to discern whether their group is grounded in truth, or is ruled over by error. Also most people will not think to examine the legitimacy of their group. Instead, people are prone to blindly following what seems right, and what appeals to their senses. However, mankind has been sinners since the fall of Adam, and therefore their senses are corrupt. That is why Scripture says that “The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked”, and “the carnal mind is enmityihop against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be”(Jeremiah 17:9, Romans 8:7). Therefore, what appeals to the senses of sinful man, and what seems right to them, cannot be trusted. Instead, whatever messenger, or message, that claims to be “the truth” must be tested by the word of God, so that people can know if what they are hearing, and learning, is true or error & deception.

Scripture is the only measuring rod for discerning truth from error. That is why Jesus, who is the Word of God, and “the Word made flesh”, said “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life”, and “I am the way, the truth, and the life”, and “Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth”(John 8:12, John 14:6, John 17:17). The Apostle John also spoke of God, and the word, in this way: “God is light and in Him is no darkness at all” (1John 1:5). The word of God also says “The words of the LORD are pure words, Like silver tried in a furnace of earth, Purified seven times”, and “Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Do not add to His words, Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar.” (Psalm 12:6, Proverbs 30:5-6). Therefore, Scripture affirms itself as true, without errors, and it is not open to additions, but it exposes those who add to the word of God as liars.

2Timothy 3

13    But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.
14    But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them,
15    and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for holy-biblesalvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16    All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,
17    that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

People who follow cults, and cult leaders, are not following the true God, but a counterfeit God. The cult leaders may claim to be Christians, and the cults may claim to be Christ’ church, but they deviate from the gospel of Jesus Christ, and require their followers to trust their interpretation of the gospel.

Some cults are more deceptive then others. Some are so extremely heretical that they are easy to fall away from. Nevertheless, people’s departure from particular cults is just the beginning of breaking away from error, because there are many cults that claim to be Christian churches. So people must be willing to examine the doctrine of every church that they attend. It is not sufficient to merely identify the heresies within other churches. Any hypocrite can do that Bill-Johnson-200x200(Matthew 7:3-5). Jesus revealed the importance of abstaining from error when he said “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it” (Matthew 7:13-14). Therefore, leaving a cult, and deciding to attend a church that seems better simply isn’t good enough. Those “who names the name of Christ must depart from iniquity”, because there are many false teachers, who are teaching people to follow heresies that contradicts the gospel, which is a work of the flesh, which will prevent many from inheriting the kingdom of God (2Timothy 2:19, Galatians 5:19-21). That is why Jesus said “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves” (Matthew 7:15). In order to escape the trap of damnable heresies, believers must test their own church to make sure that it is a church that teaches, and obeys, the true gospel. There is no perfect church, but a true church teaches the true gospel, and obeys it (Matthew 5:13-16, John 8:12, Ephesians 4:1-16, Galatians 1:6-8, Galatians 5:4-9).

Whenever believers join churches that teaches the true gospel, and obeys it, the believes must also test themselves to make sure that they are following Christ, and not merely his people, nor pastors, nor their favorite teachers, because Jesus commanded every believer to follow him. He also gave this warning: “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit” (John 15:1-2). He also said “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned” (John 15:5-6). This means that those who are claiming to be believers, yet are not following Christ’s teachings, will be taken out of the congregation of the righteous, and burned by the wrath of God (Psalm 1:-6, Psalm 119:1-11, Hebrews 6:1-8).

Hebrews 6

1    Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God,
2    of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
3    And this we will do if God permits.
4    For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit,
5    and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come,
6    if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.
7    For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God;
8    but if it bears thorns and briers, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.

This is the reason why many Christians will not inherit the kingdom of God. They do not endure to the end. They may be in the congregation of the righteous, and mimic the behavior of believers, and even expose the heresies of false churches, yet they, themselves, are not following Christ. They are merely indoctrinated into church culture. Though it may be a true church, God’s word has not taken root in their own hearts. They are merely following their group, or their pastor, and when their group falls into damnable heresies, they might also follow without protest. These kind of people are members of true Christian churches, yet they follow their church just as any other cult member.

There are also many professing Christians who follow their favorite teachers, whether they be local pastors, or televangelists. These are personality cults. Many of these cults are international. The danger with these type of cults isn’t merely the doctrine. The doctrine could be true, yet the cult aspect will still lead many to Hell, because the people are not following Christ, but a mere human celebrity. This cult is extremely dangerous, because it seems safe to the human senses, but it is idolatry. Idolatry is a work of the flesh, and those who practice it will not inherit the kingdom of God (Galatians 5:20-21). The way to eternal life is narrow, and difficult. (Matthew 7:14). Therefore, every believer must test themselves to see if they are really in the faith, and not following, and worshiping, idols, because it does not matter if a preacher that they are idolizing is preaching the true gospel. If Christians are following an orthodox preacher, rather than Christ, then that believer will go to Hell for their idolatry.

Believers, therefore, do not need to be pointed to great preachers, but Christ, himself. He is the true God, and abiding in him will lead to eternal life. Preachers do not need to be exalted, but Jesus said “if I am lifted up from the earth, [I] will draw all peoples to Myself” (John 12:32).

1Corinthians 1

10    Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
11    For it has been declared to me concerning you, my brethren, by those of Chloe’s household, that there are contentions among you.
12    Now I say this, that each of you says, “I am of Paul,” or “I am of Apollos,” or “I am of Cephas,” or “I am of Christ.”
13    Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?

1Corinthians 3

5    Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers through whom you believed, as the Lord gave to each one?
6    I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase.
7    So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase.
8    Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor.
9    For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building.

Matthew 23

8    But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi’; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethren.
9    Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven.
10    And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ.
11    But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant.

Luke 14

26    “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple.
27    And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.

John 15

3    You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
4    Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
5    “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
6    If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.

1John 2

24    Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father.
25    And this is the promise that He has promised us — eternal life.
26    These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you.
27    But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.
28    And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.
29    If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him.

2 Timothy 2

19 Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”

1John 5

18    We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him.
19    We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.
20    And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.
21    Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

Authors of Confusion Pt. 25 – Oprah’s “Life Class”

jakes oprah

Longtime talk show host, actress, and philanthropist, Oprah Winfrey, is partnering with some of the biggest names in Christian media for her “life class“, wherein she teaches people how to live their best lives. Although Oprah has already made it clear that she doesn’t believe that Jesus Christ is the only way to God, she is now presenting herself as a Christian, and is partnering with well known pastors, who were never known for preaching the true gospel of salvation, to help her audience believe that living the Christian life is “one and the same” with living one’s best life. This means that sin, God’s righteousness, his judgment on sinners, repentance, and faith in Jesus Christ, is not mentioned in the classes. This deception is perpetrated by using Scripture out of context to affirm their messages of self-affirmation, self-exaltation, and self-reliance. Some of Oprah’s “life class” partners are T. D. Jakes, Rick Warren, and Joel Osteen.

Oprah’s “life class” reduces Christian living down to being positive for the sake of being happy, and successful in life.

Nevertheless, Jesus did not come into the world to give people the joys of this world, but to take the penalty of the sins of mankind on himself, which is death, and to rise from the dead, so that everyone who believes in him would be freed from the bondage to sin, from God’s judgment on sinners, to reconcile them to himself, and to give them eternal life. This is the gospel, and Christian living is not attainable to those who do not believe this. Also, salvation will not be found by those who, knowingly, hold back the truth of the gospel for the sake of being popular, and loved by the world (1John 2:15-17, Galatians 1:7-10). Therefore, Oprah, and her partners, are deceiving millions with their man-made, and man-centered, philosophies, and they, themselves, are under God’s eternal punishment.

1John 2

15    Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16    For all that is in the world — the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life — is not of the Father but is of the world.
17    And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
18    Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.
19    They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.

1John 4

3 And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.
4    You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
5    They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them.
6    We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

Colossians 2

4    Now this I say lest anyone should deceive you with persuasive words.
5    For though I am absent in the flesh, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the steadfastness of your faith in Christ.
6    As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him,
7    rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.
8    Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.
9    For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;
10    and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.

2Corinthians 10

3    For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.
4    For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,
5    casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,

John 5

3    For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.
4    For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith.
5    Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
6    This is He who came by water and blood — Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.
7    For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one.
8    And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one.
9    If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; for this is the witness of God which He has testified of His Son.
10    He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son.
11    And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.
12    He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
13    These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.

2Corinthians 5

14    For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died;
15    and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.
16    Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer.
17    Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
18    Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation,
19    that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
20    Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.
21    For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

The New Christianity Pt. 12 – Alice Bailey & The Christian World Servers

world servers

WorldServerFoundation.Org

Vision and Mission

Our vision

Our vision is a world where collaboration and co-operation are recognised as essential in solving the contemporary challenges – social, economic, political and environmental – facing the global community.

Mission statement

The mission of the World Servers Foundation is to highlight and facilitate the positive work of others and to promote and cultivate the inherent ability within all human beings to bring about positive change.

We believe that co-operation and collaboration are vital next steps in human history and that these will be essential features of our longer-term survival.

On a daily basis we will contribute to a more stable and co-operative world community through:

Education and Encouragement – Providing courses and retreats for people who are in a position to influence, motivate and educate others. These courses and retreats will provide a forum for fresh perspectives on the nature of education and human development and will help key decision makers and educators bring about positive change within their respective fields and to leverage this position for wider impact.

Providing a platform for global discussion and debate that enables individuals and organisations at all levels, in every country, to tell their story, express their feelings, highlight key issues and showcase work in all areas related to positive change.

Using the media and the power of the internet as a collaborative educational platform.

Creativity and Connection – Network building: locating, connecting and communicating the initiatives worldwide which are serving the good of their communities and providing ways for others to be involved and further this work.

To identify and connect groups and individuals in areas such as education, science, the arts, business, charity and politics who are aligned with this vision and mission, making their service more visible and tangible.

To provide platforms for practical expression, action, creativity, discussion and collaboration.

Neutrality – To maintain religious, social and political neutrality, free from the influence of any particular country, organisation or group.

This mission stems from our desire to make visible the power of the human spirit and goodwill by highlighting those thoughts and actions that go beyond individual interests and serve the good of the whole.Through this work we aim to educate and encourage others and therefore increase the pace and volume of positive change around the world to meet our core vision.

The herald of the “world servers” was occultist, Alice Bailey, who was the founder of Lucis Trust, which was originally Alice-baileyfounded as Lucifer Trust in the early 1920’s. Bailey was a Luciferian, a the herald of the New Age, and she wrote extensively about the coming new world order, and its “world servers”. She described the world servers in the following:

Lucis Trust

The “world servers” are people who seek to serve the good of the whole, share the same consciousness, carries out every activity which forwards, and fosters, good will and right relations. They seek to be harmless, constructive, and inclusive, in their thinking, and in their actions. World servers are active in all fields of life, and all countries. They are laying the foundations for right relations, and world unity. The new group of world servers is a living organization. It is not an organization. It has no headquarters, or official representatives. Every person, in every country, who is living a life of service to the good of the whole, is a member of the group. Every man, and woman, in every country, who is working to heal the breeches between people, to evoke a sense of brotherhood, to foster a sense of mutual interrelation, and interdependence, and who sees no racial, national, nor religious barriers, are part of the new group of world servers, even if they never heard of it by name. Members of the group are active in all branches of human enterprise. They include creative workers, psychologists, teachers, scientists, political workers, religious workers, business people, financiers, labor & management, environmentalists, and human rights workers.

 For more information on Alice Bailey’s description of the “world servers”, click on the link entitled “The New Group of World Servers“.

Tony Blair, who is a member of the Fabian Society has established the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, which includes Pastor of Saddleback Church, and author of “The purpose Driven Life”, Rick Warren, as one of the members of its religious advisory council. Rick Warren has been highly involved in working for world peace & security by his rick warrenhumanitarian work in countries around the world through church planting, and has even signed a document which affirms the Universalist’s claim that the God of Christians and the god of Islam is the same god, who they both serve for the sake of world peace, called “A Christian Response to ‘A Common Word between Us and You’“. According to the statement below, the Tony Blair Faith Foundation is geared toward the same agenda as Alice Bailey’s “world servers”, by using religion as a tool to secure, and sustain, world peace.

The Tony Blair Faith Foundation

 The Tony Blair Faith Foundation promotes understanding and respect between the world’s major religions. We believe this is central to a policy to secure sustained peace.

The world continues to become increasingly interconnected. Old boundaries of culture and identity are being eroded. However, faith has remained at the core of life for billions of people. It underpins systems of thought and behaviour.

Faith can be used to unite people around a common cause. But too often, faith can also be distorted and used to fan the flames of hatred and extremism.

The Tony Blair Faith Foundation supports and collaborates with those who seek peace. We educate and develop understanding about religion in the modern world by promoting leadership, literacy and lives.

  • Leadership: we seek to ensure that current and future leaders understand the role religion plays in the modern, globalising world.
  • Literacy: we educate and support young people to help them become global citizens.
  • Lives: we help religious communities in 140+ countries work together to save lives.

We do this through three innovative programmes Faith and Globalisation Initiative, Faiths Act, and Face to Faith.

The Christian “world servers” can be seen in world-wide church planting initiatives that seeks spiritual, social, and cultural transformation of entire cities and regions, which is not evangelism, but the changing of various people’s world views for the purpose of uniting the church with the secular communities of the world. Below is an example of global church planting of Christians, who’s, ecumenical, dominionist’s agenda, reflects the agenda of the “world servers”.

Global Church Advancement

This GCA Church Planting and Renewal Conference is an inter-denominational training event designed to equip church planters, pastors, and lay-leaders to start, grow and multiply healthy, gospel-centered churches that result in the spiritual, social and cultural transformation of entire cities and regions.

Christian leaders from more than 50 countries, representing over 300 denominations and mission agencies, have taken this church planter training.

Our Plan –

In order to best accomplish our strategy, GCA has designed a tactical plan to equip church leaders to start, grow and multiply Gospel-Centered Churches that intentionally form Church Planting Networks and Alliances that will, by God’s grace, birth Church Planting Movements and Gospel Renewal Movements. This is the strategy through which we pray that God’s invisible Kingdom will be made visible among social gospelall nations—resulting in the fulfillment of the Great Commission (Matt. 28:16-20). This plan includes starting, growing and multiplying:

Churches

A Gospel-Centered Church focuses its ministries primarily on: 1) Evangelism (good news for the lost), 2) discipleship (good news for the found), and 3) societal transformation (good news for the community). A Gospel-Centered Church shares a Kingdom vision for the spiritual, social and cultural renewal of its community, region, nation and the world through starting, growing and multiplying churches by the power of the gospel in word and deed. The plan is not merely to start Gospel Centered Churches but also Church Planting Networks.

Timothy Keller, Pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church, who also teaches this false gospel of cultural renewal, described his approach to proclaiming the gospel of cultural transformation below, which also reflects the agenda of the world servers, but on a city-wide scale, instead of nation wide.

First, that Christ changes the way we use wealth and power. Our understanding of work must reflect what Robert Bellah (from his book, Habits of the Heart) describes as a contribution to the common good. Along this line, I’d express a desire to populate the city with people who embody this vision. I’dTim Keller Headshot want to see an explosion of philanthropy, in which we don’t spend money on ourselves, but instead cooperate with others who want to make the city a desirable place to live. Much like Wilberforce did in the early part of 19th-century England, we would pursue healing and redemption.

Second, I would address artists and thought-leaders, emphasizing that Christians have a positive outlook for the future over and against the dystopian pessimism that so often characterizes evangelicals. We are not naïve about suffering and evil, but we have a long term hope for society that can seize an ordinary life.

Third, we’d like to encourage growing civility and true pluralism in our society, that is, to counteract anger and contribute to the creation of an atmosphere of mutual respect among people of differing beliefs.

What makes the Christian “world servers” different from the secular “world servers” is their traditional views on morality, such as their opposition to same sex marriage, and abortion. Nevertheless, each younger generation becomes more liberal, due to the culture’s secular education, the influence of the secular media, mainstream arts & entertainment, and the growing liberal Christianity. The result of the growth in liberal Christian views will cause the true followers of Christ, who strictly adhere to Scripture, and separate themselves from the world’s herd mentality, to seem like a strange fringe group among Christians, who are out of touch with, what the world is now learning to believe is, Christ’s work of redemption, and Christian love, peace, unity, humility, and godliness. But this false Christianity cannot put out the light of the gospel. Instead, it will only cause its proclamation to shine brighter by way of the church’s love for one another, and through the boldness of their preaching in the midst of persecution.

Matthew 5

10    Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11    Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12    Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
13    Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
14    Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15    Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16    Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

John 13

34    A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
35    By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

Matthew 10

34    Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
35    For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
36    And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
37    He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
38    And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
39    He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

2Thessalonians 1

3    We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth;
4    So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure:
5    Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer:
6    Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;
7    And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
8    In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
9    Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
10    When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.
11    Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power:
12    That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

1Thessalonians 5

1    But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
2    For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
3    For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
4    But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
5    Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
6    Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
7    For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
8    But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
9    For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
10    Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
11    Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.

John 16

1    These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.
2    They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
3    And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.
4    But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.
33    These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

1John 5

1    Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
2    By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
3    For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
4    For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
5    Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
6    This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.
18    We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.
19    And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.
20    And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

Revelation 1

7    Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

Revelation 2

24 I will put upon you none other burden.
25    But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.
26    And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
27    And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
28    And I will give him the morning star.
29    He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Revelation 22

11    He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
12    And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
13    I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
14    Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
15    For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
16    I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
17    And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
20    He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
21    The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Book Review #4 – Beth Moore’s “The Beloved Disciple”

beth moore

Beth Moore’s book, “The Beloved Disciple”, is up for review due to her many claims of “God spoke to me“. These claims need to be examined due to the fact that when God gives commands to his church, it is authoritatively binding for the whole church, and equal with Scripture (2Peter 1:19-21, James 1:21-25). However, if God has not spoken to a person, who claims that God did speak to them, and told them to give commands to his church, then that person is guilty of taking the Lord’s name in vain by adding to the words of God to his church.

Exodus 20

7    Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Proverbs 30

5    Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
6    Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

The Beloved Disciple , Pg. 220

Beloved, I am convinced one of our severest needs is pure rest. Not only sleep, but refreshment and recreation. Recently God spoke to me about capturing what He and I are calling “Sabbath moments.” Like many of yours, my schedule right now is particularly tough, and I see no time in the near future for a number of days off. God spoke to my heart one Saturday morning while I was preparing for Sunday school: “My child, in between more intense rests, I want to teach you to take Sabbath moments.” I wasn’t certain what He meant. Just that morning God confirmed His desire for me to drive all beth_moorethe way to the other side of Houston to the medical center to visit a patient with brain cancer. I was very thankful for the privilege of visiting this patient, but I knew in advance it would be tough emotionally and far from restful.

I fought the traffic across Houston, then visited with my new friend and her husband while choking back the tears. They have two young sons, and unless God performs a miracle, their mother will go home to be with the Lord before they are grown. I got in my car and prayed. I pulled out of the parking garage, fighting the tears. A few blocks later as if on autopilot, I turned my steering wheel straight into the parking lot of the Houston Zoo!

Christ seemed to say, “Let’s go play.” And that we did. I hadn’t been to the zoo in years. I heard about all the improvements, but I never expected the ultimate: Starbucks coffee! (OK, so I don’t have all my health issues down pat.) Can you imagine watching a baby koala take a nap in a tree on a rare cold day in Houston with a Starbucks grande cappuccino in your hand? Now that’s a Sabbath moment! God and I had a blast.

Beth Moore’s god cannot be recognized as the God of Scripture, since nowhere in Scripture has the God of glory ever invited his servants to “go with him to play” (Psalm 29:3, Acts 7:2-3). Instead, he invites his people to delight themselves in him, which is done, not by focusing on the earthly affairs, and pleasures of this life, such as going to Starbucks, and enjoying a cup of cappuccino (1John 2:15-17, Jude 1:16-19). God’s instruction, from Scripture, is to delight one’s self in the Lord, by meditating on him, his word, his goodness, his loving kindness, his work of redemption…etc. which are Heavenly blessings, and not superficial, and earthly, as Beth Moore’s god is (Psalm 1:2-3, Psalm 34:8, Psalm 37:4, Psalm 118:1, Psalm 119:13-20, Romans 11:33-36, Ephesians 1:3, Ephesians 5:18-20, Colossians 15:17). God has given all things under Heaven for man’s enjoyment, but delighting oneself in the Lord should not be confused with earthly pleasures. Scripture does not direct the church to focus on delighting themselves in regular earthly pleasures, but on things that are above (Colossians 3:2).

Furthermore, Christ’s commands to his church must come from the Bible, because “The Lord spoke to me…” is a breeding ground for heresy, and it is the foundation which cult leaders build on to take, from the church, a following after themselves. Therefore, to allow the church to be in the habit of listening to teachers who frequently make the claim of God speaking to them, and giving them commands for his church, which cannot be found in the Bible, is to tear down the wall of defense for the church that would have protected Christ’s sheep from deceivers, who cause divisions and offenses contrary to the gospel, and do not serve the Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple (Romans 16:17-19). This is made evident by Beth Moore’s “vision of the church“, and her “acknowledgment of Roman Catholicism as just another Christian denomination“.

Therefore, teachers like Beth Moore must be marked, and avoided. This means that their books should not be read, and they must not be welcomed into the church as believers, because their authoritative commands, which, they claim, were given by divine revelation from God, cannot be affirmed by Scripture (2John 1:8-11).

Christ gave his Apostles, and prophets, to the church for the purpose of building up his church in their knowledge of the gospel, until the New Testament was written by them. Now that the church has the New Testament, it no longer needs the presents of Apostles, and prophets. Nor does the church need the constant claims of God giving people visions, and extra-Biblical messages, because Scripture alone is sufficient to make the church wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus, and it was given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, so that the church may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2Timothy 3:15-17). This is why it is said “whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away. When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known” (1Corinthians 13:8-12). Therefore, the need for tongues, prophecy, and words of knowledge, were present because the church was still immature in it’s development. Now that the church has God’s written word, which is the mirror of the perfect law of liberty, they only need Scripture to instruct them in Christian living. The written word of God is the more reliable word of prophecy, because “no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit” (2Peter 1:19-21).

Ephesians 4

11    And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12    For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13    Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
14    That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
15    But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ

Romans 16

17    Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
18    For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
19    For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.

Matthew 7

18    A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
