“For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished. Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:18-19, NASB)

The Inclusive Gospel To Come

As long as the Lord tarries you need to know that we will be witnessing a further slide downward toward the doctrine of inclusivism by more and more Christian leaders while the attack continues from within the Ecumenical Church of Deceit (ECoD) on the inerrancy and authority of God’s Word in the Bible. Without the objective truth contained in Holy Scripture mankind’s warped reasoning–bent as it is toward the self–will only continue backing even further away from the doctrine of Hell.

And the ready-made excuse for the ECoD, daughter of the apostate Church of Rome, is so-called “postmodernism.” Below I will give you an example of how these cowardly counterfeit ministers of the Gospel are using this faulty philosophy as a loophole so they personally don’t have to bear the persecution that Christ tells us will come to all who stand unswervingly for God’s absolute Truth:

“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated Me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember the words I spoke to you: ‘No servant is greater than his master.’ ”

“If they persecuted Me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed My teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of My Name, for they do not know the One who sent Me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin. Now, however, they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates Me hates my Father as well.” (John 15:18-23)

Attacking The Veracity Of The Bible

In his book The Church on the Other Side Emerging Church theologian and postmodern proponent Guru Brian McLaren performs his usual “service” of first clouding the issues before he tells us about what he considers to be a very poor example for leading a church. McLaren refers to this dastardly type of pastor as “the know-it-all-Bible-answer-man model.” However, even as McLaren masterfully knocks down his little pet straw men he is only revealing his own bias against the authority of Holy Scripture when he informs us:

This is the leader who led by knowledge, who made life sound so simple if you merely live by “biblical principles”…For him, there was a simple formula for everything,…this kind of leader in the old church gained power through esoteric knowledge…this church leader often promised to remove mystery through research,… Think of it–demystified principles and doctrine, even less interesting than microscope slides (110, emphasis mine).

And then McLaren shows us what the flawed philosophy of postmodernism is actually about–rebellion against authority–as the Emergent Cult leader says, “in our postmodern world, most of us have come to realize that God, the Bible, life, and Christianity–like Heisenberg’s particles–are wild nonconformists. And we distrust anyone who tries to prove otherwise (111, emphasis mine).

Well Guru Brian, anyone–being an all inclusive term–we would now have to include both God the Father and God the Son among those we “distrust” as Christ Himself told us – “Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent” (John 17:3). Oops, we also have to “distrust” God the Holy Spirit because He said – “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life” (1 John 5:13).

The Rapid Slide To Apostasy

You may mark my words, throughout history whenever you see men who have denigrated the Word of God in any way it isn’t long until the Lord abandons them completely. And the slide is already well underway as can be seen elsewhere in yet another ignoble issue of Christianity Today. Consider the editorial by Episcopal Bishop Edward Little II that Ingrid Schleuter of Slice of Laodicea commented upon here.

Although he does say he has “a commitment to the authority of Scripture” Little’s commentary uses terms terms like “followers of Jesus” and “on the journey,” which is the lingo of the Emergent rebellion. He even refers to “Bishop” Gene Robinson, an openly practicing homosexual, as his “colleague.” And Little goes on to tell us he even counts this counterfeit minister–in flagrant sin–as “a fellow pilgrim,” using yet another catchphrase of the Emergent Church.

This same March 2006 issue of CT also includes an article by panentheist Emergent writer Frederica Matthews-Green all about seeking “the common good.” This itself is Emergent phraseology for finding the “common ground” in all religions. The inevitable lean in that direction for the compromisers of new evangelicalism is further evidenced in another article in this same edition of CT.

This one by “Pentecostal scholar” Amos Yong. Yong tells us he “is determined to follow the Spirit wherever the Spirit leads and to let the theological chips fall where they may” in regard to his deluded idea that he sees “the Holy Spirit” working in other religions too.

As Yong continues his own personal slide into apostasy we are enthusiastically told:

His central thesis is that, because the Spirit of God is universally active in creation and new creation, “the religions of the world, like everything else that exists, are providentially sustained by the Spirit of God for divine purposes”…that means Christians should be open to learning from and being enriched by the Spirit’s work in world religions… Dialogue must take place…so that all the religions–including Christianity–can learn from each other what the Spirit is doing. (53,54)

And Yong is supposed to be a Christian theologian mind you! O silly Jesus, if only He’d have had the “wisdom” of these new evangelicals today He would have listened when Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him in Matthew 16:22 because the Master insisted on doing the will of the Father, which would lead to His crucifixion. “Never, Lord!” Peter said. “This shall never happen to you!”

I will suggest Yong had better carefully reread this portion of Scripture – [Jeshurun] abandoned the God who made him and rejected the Rock his Savior. They made him jealous with their foreign gods and angered him with their detestable idols. They sacrificed to demons, which are not God (Deuteronomy 32:15-17).

What a sad state of affairs in that the American Christian Church has created a “thing” they call evangelicalism, but its not the Christianity of the New Testament. However, as the drift from the authority of Holy Scripture continues, the erecting of altars to Baal and the carving of Asherah poles to be used by the ECoD “common ground” in their own interfaith/interspiritual worship can’t be too far off.
