Today there is growing talk about apostasy, which gives an appearance of having only recently being ignited within the visible church of our Lord.

For many, it seems, this falling away from Biblical authority has suddenly exploded onto the scene as if by a spiritual match tossed onto the gasoline of Contemplative Spirituality/Mysticism (CSM), with its paralyzing of critical thinking skills through its deeply existential vehicle of Contemplative/Centering Prayer (CCP).

But Apprising Ministries wants you to know that for years now Satan and his deceiving spirits have been busy saturating their doctrines of demons throughout the very dry forest of dead intellectual evangelical churchianity so easily passing for Christianity today in our postmodern [read: relativistic] America.

Therefore, I will offer that this falling away from Biblical Christianity has already been very slowly burning within mainstream evangelicalism, which as the new traditions of men, has actually been nullifying the Word of God. In my opinion, Jesus would say:

to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written, “‘This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ You leave the commandment of God and hold to the tradition of men.” (Mark 7:6-8)

This is why I believe that, finally growing weary of this rising rebellion, God the Holy Spirit is simply blowing it throughout the whole of Christendom now. And so apostasy is now spreading within the Christian Church world-wide as quickly an Oklahoma wildfire in order to burn out the deleterious driftwood currently using up so much of our Father’s precious resources.

If you’re listening to the Voice of the Spirit then will know that very rough spiritual waters lie dead ahead because we are only just beginning to witness 1 Peter 4:17 judgments as Christ starts shaking His church visible. I say the time has come in the Christian arena for division, and not unity.

We need a reformation every bit the same as when Luther stood hammer in hand. I’ll simply offer that someone must arise and declare that there is just no way to harmonize geniune Bible-believing and Spirit-led Christianity e.g. with the egregiously ecumenical postliberal cult of the Emerging Church.

People will have to come to realize that it has virtually completely swallowed up the younger sectors of the centered on the self, and semi-pelagian (at best), mainstream contemporary evangelical community. 1) the EC hasn’t died off, it’s regrouping; and 2) it’s effects are even manifesting in the attractional camp, particularly concerning Scripture.

It shouldn’t really surprise anyone who knows what’s going on because the Seeker Driven aka attractional movement and the Emerging Church are two sides of the same corrupt coin of the Church Growth Movement. And the CGM is at the root of things like Wycliffe-Gate Continued: Words MEAN Things.

The truth is, there can be no compromise with men preaching a pseudo-Christian non-gospel of social reform such as EC leader, quasi-universalist Doug Pagitt, and his “theologian in residence” Dr. Tony Jones. If you haven’t, I encourage you to read the AM piece The New Christians With Christianity Worth Believing—No Sola Scriptura: Yes, Women Pastors And Queer Christians.

If people will only actually make the time to follow the links therein, then prayerfully just maybe, they’ll finally be able to see what’s about to ignite within your own mainstream evangelical church Young Adult and Youth groups. Tragically, using them as guinea pigs for CSM, many now hold to nebula Scriptura.

Mainstream Evangelicalism Is Now Going To Have Decide About LGBT “Christ-Followers”

As you saw in earlier pieces like Christianity 21: Emerging Voices Of A Pseudo-Christian Faith Jones and Pagitt were the ones behind that original EC apostasia-palooza c21. Sadly, J&P actually were proved right when they told us that these c21 “voices” would be revealing “the way the Christianity will be changing in coming days.”

For example, one of these most important voices for the future of Christianity was the then relatively unknown ELCA pastrix Nadia Bolz-Weber. Bolz-Weber is quite open about her local church being “queer inclusive,” meaning that they don’t believe that the unrepentant practice of sexual immorality with a member of the same sex—which is precisely what homosexuality is—should be considered sin.

Now that sola Scriptura has been shown out the door of the church visible, let me give you a quick picture of what already is coming out of the closet and in through that open door. We are now left with simply subjective arguments concerning doctrine e.g. homosexuality—a spiritual version of Oprah—based upon what we feel God says to us individually after our transcendental-lite meditation aka the Contemplative/Centering Prayer (CCP) I referred to at the outset.

In closing this out, for now, I politely ask that you think with me here a moment. As I mentioned earlier, since at least the year 2000, many mainstream evangelical churches began so-called alternative service using the aforementioned Contemplative Spirituality/Mysticism (CSM), which was a core doctrine of the sinfully ecumenical Emerging/ent Church from its evil inception. At the same time, they also started using their Young Adult and Youth groups as ground zero for experiments with the effects of CSM.

As a sad result, now evangelicalism is only beginning to pay the price for passing it’s younger sectors through the fires of Molech. Many of your young mainstream evangelicals have long ago been conditioned to reject any kind of argument based solely upon what Scripture says. So, what exactly are you going to say to them when queer inclusive “pastors” like Nadia Bolz-Weber start to introduce such as these to them as their fellow “Christ-followers?”

Know this in the Lord, ER2 gives a peek at the weak…the wise recognize the time in which we now live…
