“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.” (Matthew 7:13-14, NASB)

Grave Issues Which Face The Body Of Christ Lie Directly Ahead

I place the link below to this helpful chart here at Apprising Ministries even somewhat reluctantly knowing the division that this can inevitably cause. However, I am constrained to do so because–after much wrestling in prayer–I am thoroughly convinced that very rough spiritual waters lie dead ahead.

Sadly the spiritual wildfire of this current apostasy will only continue to spread, blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming (Ephesians 4:14) in the seeker sensitive Purpose Driven Church, the neo-liberal cult of the Emergent Church and the centered on self Word Faith Church, the major pillars in what I have called The Ecumenical Church of Deceit.

You also need to know that there is where you find the vipers nest for the highly ecumenical new evangelical religion posing as authentic Christianity that is currently swallowing up the American Christian Church. Among the more prominent men who teach it are Rick Warren and Erwin McManus and Brian McLaren and Rob Bell and T.D. Jakes and Joel Osteen who all openly eschew the doctrines of grace.

As you look at this chart, and no doubt a few on either side could quibble a bit about both representations, even so on the whole you’ll see a very accurate depiction of the core teachings of Arminianism and Calvinism. Please make the time to prayerfully and thoroughly go over it on your knees and with your Bible in hand. Because I tell you in the Lord that Satan has established a major beachhead within the American Christian Church.

Men and women, there are some very grave decisions straight ahead for the Body of Christ. So we stop now and meditate on our text where Jesus Christ of Nazareth–the Master Teacher raised from the dead–has most clearly told us the very sobering news that – “the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.” And yet each of the men referenced above–to a man–in their broad ecumenicism are actually teaching the polar opposite.
