As I said the other day, with all of the spiritual monkey business going on in the evangelical community, it almost appears to me that sometimes I’m documenting the great falling way; but this much is certain [pause to let postmoderns wince], we are—at the very least—in the midst of a great falling away.

Here at the online apologetics and discernment work Apprising Ministries I’m doing what I can to show you what’s happening. It’s often not even my intent to try and convince anyone that evanjellyfish is so spiritually spineless, and in lust for the approval of the world, that—as the old song says—Anything Goes.

Let me give you an example that’s germane to the video below. I’ve told you before that Word Faith Heretics Like Creflo Dollar Draw Nearer To Evangelical Acceptance. You think I’m kidding? Then consider that Word Faith Heretic Cindy Trimm Receives Award From Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

That’s right, BGEA awarded that kind of spiritual circus. Now, how about Oneness Pentecostal T.D. Jakes Goes Mainstream Evangelical. There you’ll see Jakes continues to ascend within “conservative” evangelicalism. Just last night I showed you Steven Furtick And T.D. Jakes.

In that piece I documented a Twitter exchange between up-and-coming Seeker Driven prophet-pastor Steven Furtick and Oneness Pentecostal and Word Faith heretic T.D. Jakes. Some now say, “I kind of agree with you; but must you put it that way?” As Dr. Walter Martin once said, “If you have any brains, you do.”

Below T.D. Jakes seeks the approval of the world rather than explaining the Gospel when asked about who goes to heaven:

Others say, “Well, can’t we all just get along?” Well…no. Furtick’s discernment is so skewed that he’s invited Jakes to preach at an upcoming conference he’s putting on; and, he thinks smiling Joel Osteen is a *cough* great man of God:

Besides his phony prosperity mythology T.D Jakes denies Who God is; there’s more than enough evidence in here: Keeping You Apprised Of: T.D. Jakes On The Trinity. Sadly, we live in a time where enemy forces are serving up a deadly potion of mind-numbing postmodernism and critical thinking skills-killing Contemplative Spirituality/Mysticism.

It’s producing a generation of essentially “Christian” zombies and opening them up to actually listening to people like Pat Robertson, whose Christian Broadcasting Network Is Also Peddling Contemplative Spirituality. It’s no surprise; Robertson’s brand of Christian Sci-Fi encompasses so-called “Words of Knowledge” supposedly from God Himself.

You watch the folks on the 700 Club “pray” and then God is thought to suddenly send, apparently via some special Holy Ghost tractor beam, “revelation knowledge” directly from the throne room back at heaven central. Sadly, so many people are then makes life decisions based on these revelations, which might simply come as the result of eating a bad burrito.

Let me point out that yesterday at the non-Christian website Right Wing Watch Brian Tashman posted the video below. Said Tashman:

Pat Robertson today addressed Tuesday’s earthquake on the east coast that left a four-foot long crack in the Washington Monument…[and] floated his claim that the fissure may have been a symbolic message from God, likening it to when the veil of the Holy of Holies was torn after the Crucifixion. (Online source)

Since I have his attention, let me assure you Brian that Pat Robertson, and those involved in the spiritual silliness above, most assuredly do not speak for Bible-believing Christians. Just so you know, the tearing of the veil had to do with the Gospel of Jesus Christ; and so, it was not so much a sign of judgment, which it seems Robertson is implying.

Brian, it was an indication about all those who accept the Gospel of repentance and forgiveness of sins in Jesus Name. You see, salvation is by God’s grace alone, through faith alone, in the finished work of of Christ alone on the Cross. The tearing tells every believer that they have direct access to a relationship with God; in other words, we don’t need a profit Pat Roberston.

If you want to talk more about this, I would welcome the opportunity to discuss Christianity with you:
