You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. (James 4:4)

There Can Be No Unity With Such As These

Apprising Ministries has been attempting to alert you e.g. in Doug Pagitt And Homosexual Sin to the evil pro-gay agenda the Emergent Church aka the Emerging Church; a movement which is gaining even more strength and has already penetrated deeply into mainstream evangelicalism—metastasizing as a spiritual cancer carried by corrupt critical-thinking killing Contemplative Spirituality/Mysticism. So I’m warning you again that you really need to understand there’s a very dark and threatening same-sex storm—now rapidly approaching hurricane force—looming just off the coast of your own local evangelical church.

Be aware that the EC’s “big tent” postmodern form of Progressive Christianity aka Emergence Christianity is a whole lot closer to the center of increasingly inclusive evangelicalism than you may even know; particularly so in your younger sectors. This Liberalism 2.0 de-formation of the Christian  faith has been attacking the cardinal doctrine of sola Scriptura in the mainstream for years now, which is why you’re finding yourself having a hard time understanding some of the things your pastor’s preaching and some of the new programs you’ve seen coming into your own local church.

As more and more of mainstream evangelicalism embraces the warped theology of this egregiously ecumenical neo-liberal cult within the Emerging Church—and it will—one is then simply left with their feelings, i.e. your fallen corrupt human reasoning, as a guide in spiritual matters. Here’s further example of where this always leads; and to see, one need only look at how the uber-divisive pro-gay lobby has torn apart the mainline denominations. We have yet another vivid illustration below from the Christian Post piece PCUSA Votes to Allow Openly Gay Clergy.

It really comes as no surprise when CP reporter Alison Matheson informs us yesterday that the PSUSA has now officially ceased to be a Christian denomination when:

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has become the fourth Protestant denomination in the U.S. to allow the ordination of gay and lesbian clergy. It follows a majority vote by the 173 presbyteries (district governing bodies) on Tuesday to change the body’s constitution in order to allow openly gay people in same-sex relationships to be ordained as ministers, elders and deacons.

The move does away with the constitutional requirement for clergy to live “in fidelity within the covenant of marriage between a man and a woman, or chastity in singleness.” It also ends 33 years of wrangling between supporters and opponents of the move and reverses the outcome of a key vote two years ago, when the majority of presbyteries blocked the proposal…

“We’ve been having this conversation for 33 years, and some people are ready to get to the other side of this decision,” PC(USA)’s stated clerk and highest elected official, the Rev. Gradye Parsons, was quoted by the New York Times as saying. “Some people are going to celebrate this day because they’ve worked for it for a long time, and some people will mourn this day because they think it’s a totally different understanding of Scripture than they have. I hope that going forward we can stay together and be faithful witnesses to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”

Satan is often very pious. Did you catch that? Parsons says those of us faithful to the Word of God in the Bible “will mourn” this lunacy in the Lord’s Name because we “think it’s a totally different understanding of Scripture than [we] have.” No, we mourn because such as these twist to their own destruction (cf. 2 Peter 3:16) what the Bible clearly teaches. Dr. Walter Martin (1928-1989) said of this pro-gay agenda back in the 1970′s: “What really is there to discuss; if, you believe what the Scripture says.” Precisely.

There is also a very real and present danger within this mangling of God’s Word in order to try and make the deviant and sinful lifestyle of having sexual relations with another of the same sex i.e homosexuality a viable one for the regenerated Christian. As I pointed out recently in Jay Bakker And Nadia Bolz-Weber In Grace Fail those who take this perverted opinion practice homopression by withholding the Gospel from the precious LGBT people, for whom Christ died, and instead merely affirming them as in right standing with God while still in their sin.

Indeed the following from Gradye Parsons, as he joins those who speak from the world (cf. 1 John 4:5), sounds nice and certainly does tickle human ears (cf. 2 Timothy 4:3-4), “I hope that going forward we can stay together and be faithful witnesses to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” However, the regenerated child of God simply cannot “stay together” with those who would so pervert the Gospel of repentance and forgiveness of sins in Jesus’ Name and walk as enemies of the cross of Christ (Philippians 3:18). I have nothing in common with those who lie about God to people who are in unrepentant sin; no matter what sin it may be.

As the sinful world system watches, the Christian must fiercely oppose those who say to unrepentant sinners for whom Jesus shed His blood, “Peace, peace, when there is no peace” (Jeremiah 6:14). For in the end, the PCUSA has now joined, “The United Church of Christ, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and The Episcopal Church already allow the ordination of openly gay candidates,” because like Demas all those many years ago, they are in love with this present world (cf. 2 Timothy 4:10):

Mark Chaves, a professor of sociology, religion and divinity at Duke University, said the move reflected changes in American culture. “They’re making this change amid a larger cultural change.  General public opinion on gay rights is trending pretty dramatically in the liberal direction,” he said.

Since it’s beginning to appear that my time is growing short, I’ve nothing to lose by telling you plainly, here is what the Lord says to His Christians who may still happen to be within these adulterous denominations:

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, “I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you, and I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty.” (2 Corinthians 6:14-18)

If you have eyes that see, then you’ll know that those who’re telling you God is trying to bring us into “unity” with such as these are lying to you. As I close this, for now, let me put this PCUSA vote to allow practicing gay clergy in perspective with an assist from Dr. John MacArthur:

You have seen a very clear illustration of [an apostate] in the ordination of the Episcopalian Bishop [Eugene] Robinson who is a blatant and outspoken homosexual who is a licentious, lascivious, ungodly man denying our only Master and Lord Jesus Christ who has come into the church, the unwitting, stupid and ignorant visible church has ordained him to Christian ministry. And he is a man marked out for condemnation by God. (Online source)

Anyone who thinks that it’s the will of God that people like this lead His Christian churches is, frankly, a fool. (cf. Psalm 36:1)
