A while back Lighting The Way International published some quotes from Dr. Walter Martin’s message called “Neutering the Bible”, which provides the idea behind this feature piece here at Apprising Ministries. Although I never met him Dr. Martin is one whom the Lord used as a teacher to profoundly impact my early studies in apologetics and as such I am one who knows full well his passion for defending what he always called “the historic orthodox Christian faith”; as well as, Martin’s teaching regarding the critical importance of the text of Holy Scripture.

“Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to turn ‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her motherinlaw—a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’ Anyone who loves his father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; anyone who loves his son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me; and anyone who does not take his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me.”(Matthew 10:34-38)

Fearfully Reversing The Protestant Reformation Brought About By God

Currently an anti-Reformation apostasy is rapidly spreading as a spiritual cancer within the Body of Christ through Satan’s Ecumenical Church of Deceit, the duplicitous daughter of the apostate Church of Rome with her Roman Catholicism as the Devil’s front for the Kingdom of God. As this spiritual disease continues to ravage the evangelical camp now embracing the Contemplative Spirituality/Mysticism as promulgated by The Cult of Guru Richard Foster, which is the core doctrine of the postliberal cult of the Emergent Church and their repillian rebellion against the Bible the Body of Christ is desperate for men like Dr. Martin.

I felt led to take the time to assemble these quotes together where we can all be blessed by them because currently there is no voice like that of Dr. Walter Martin in the tepid and timid tolerant American Christian Church of today. For example the following by Dr. Martin is spot on for the Emergent Church currently swallowing up the spiritually petrifying Slowly Becoming Catholic supposedly “Protestant” denomination home to Purpose Driven Pope Rick Warren. If Dr. Martin were still with us I have no doubt that he would say to these Emerging Church Hollow Men who dare deny the inerrancy and infallibility of the Bible:

The time has come to take off the velvet glove with these jokers, and tell people what they are really up to, and this is what they are up to: They are up to the perversion of the text of the Holy Scriptures.

We are more concerned in the United States about the rights of homosexuals than we are about Who Jesus Christ is and what He did. We’re more conderned with social issues in the United States in the Christian church denominationally than we are with those who are dying in their sins without the Gospel. We are very concerned about everything except the things that really matter.

…the only way you can deal with this is to bring it out in the open and let people see it for what it really is: It’s filth, because it is attacking at the very core the character and nature of holy Scripture, and making the Scripture say what the Scripture does not say…

The Pitiful Progression Of Tepid Compromise With The World

There is a progression that takes place in liberal theology: It begins with a corrupt bibliology, a corrupt view of the nature and the inspiration of Scripture. They have a corrupt theology because once you are picking and choosing from the Bible what you want, your theology has to suffer from it, because your human reason is corrupt. From the corrupt theology proceeds a corrupt Christology, Jesus Christ loses His position, and the great doctrines of Who He is and what He did are diluted and finally destroyed. From the corrupt Christology comes a corrupt pneumatology, that is a corrupt view of the Holy Spirit and of what the Spirit does and is doing in the Church. Then from this corrupt bibliology, theology, Christology and pneumatology liberal theology ends up in a complete lack of proper morality, and actually leads people away from what the Gospel says into unChristian and immoral positions.

Mr. Pugh gave me a job and said, “I want you to do something that is very important. Princeton Theological Seminary is about to go down the tubes on Scripture. The Presbyterian Church is getting ready for a new confessional and they will use that confessional as a means of denying foundational truths of Presbyterian theology.” I said, “Are you sure?” He said, “I know it!” And so they did, he knew it from the inside. He said, “I want you to make a study of every major theological seminary in the United States; I don’t care what it costs. And I want you to document for me what happened to them. Are they orthodox, neo-orthodox, or liberal; and then I want you to tell me how they got that way.”

So I did, and it was amazing what emerged. Point number one; every major theological seminary that has turned from orthodox Christianity began with disbelief of Biblical doctrine. There wasn’t a single exception. This corrupt Bibliology then lead them to the next step. Their Theology began to be touched by it, their view of the Cross, the Virgin Birth were both immediately questioned; then came the miracles of Christ. And finally they had emptied the Gospel of all its content; they were simply using the outward shell so that they go on collecting money from the people and the churches; because they knew that if the people in the pew knew that they were apostate, they’d throw them out. So the strategy was hang on to the trust funds; hang on to the money we’ve got; hang on the properties we control, and we will gradually educate the laymen into this new approach to theology.

And then finally we will take control of everything. The gradual process of feeding you theological poison until you become immunized enough so that you don’t know what’s happening to you. And when you wake up to what’s happening to you, it’s too late they’ve got everything. That is not a baseless charge, I stand prepared to prove that the Cult of Liberal Theology in the United States has deliberately and consistently followed this methodology to entrap, control and dominate the denominations and the churches of the United States and our educational institutions. The study with Mr. Pugh confirmed the fact that once the Theology became corrupt, gradually then the view of Christ Himself underwent change.

People say, “Why must you be so blunt?” Well, in the name of God, somebody’s got to be blunt and tell the truth, because this garbage is passing for truth, and if we keep quiet in the midst of it, we are guilty! Therefore, let’s speak out.

And let me also be blunt. If you personally aren’t prepared to speak out yourself, then I pray that at least you’d be willing to financially support those of us who are currently doing so.
