WWJD about LifeWay dominating SBC Sunday School Bible studies?

LifeWay now teaches almost all group studies within the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) and many other churches as well. Sunday School “teachers” in most SBC churches are actually facilitator’s for LifeWay publishing house materials. Most Sunday School leaders do not know the Bible well enough to teach it and most church boards would not allow them to depart from using LifeWay materials even if they did. LifeWay studies seemed to be designed to not rock anyone’s theological boat. Pastors and church leaders trust LifeWay to not offend anyone with their inoffensive Gospel that avoids controversial passages and Bible prophecy.

I have taken a position against replacing real Bible studies with LifeWay magazine studies for more than a decade and I express why in this article that I wrote over ten years ago.

Putting Heaven and Hell in a more biblical perspective

Most religious people think that after death those that did enough good works will go up to Heaven for eternity and people who did too many bad works will go down to Hell for eternity. They might be surprised that the Bible does not agree with their premise. First, salvation depends upon faith in the Lord, not in our own good or bad performance. Second, the Bible teaches that Hell will be done away with. It is thrown in the Lake of Fire. Third, the Bible teaches that the Kingdom of Heaven will actually at least partly exist on the Earth.

Third awakening coming or persecution or Dominion Theology false revival?

Religious leaders are the wolves that Paul warned about

Since the time of Babel there have been prideful self-righteous religious people influencing the world that think they should be honored and set above the rest of humanity. They claim to be enlightened people who speak for God and like to be called prophet, priest, reverend or some other exalted title for “holy men”. They pretend to be people enlightened by God but many of these religious leaders are actually megalomaniacs doing the work of Satan.

We see these religious examples many times in the Old Testament opposing the true prophets and anointed leadership that God raised up. When the Messiah came to Israel, it was the Jewish religious leaders that rejected Him and opposed Him.

Churches are becoming corporate institutions of feminized men

Real men in America that actually contend for the faith have become a rare commodity in most of the feminized government corporations now called churches. Our Christian forefathers are now rolling in their graves wondering why Christians gave up biblical truth for humanistic social engineering lies.

Church has become big business in America. Most churches in America are now state licensed corporations. These churches feel they must become a corporation and abide by the business laws of the State. Sit in any congregational business meeting and you will see that church business is conducted according to state corporate law and not any biblical model.

Scripts from God should always be taken in proper context

I have noticed that some teachers and preachers today just rip passages of the Bible out of proper context in order to support whatever it is that they happen to be teaching. All teachers should understand the context before they quote passages in support of what they are saying. The Bible is a book of scripts from God and His scripts could be misunderstood if they are out of context. Taking scripture out of context is like putting your words in God’s mouth.

Taking scriptures out of context and applying strange interpretations to them has been going on since scriptures were given.

Heresies and cults are rooted in Bible passages twisted into allegory

The Bible contains allegory, but when it does it also is evident in the passage. Along with legalism I think there is a strong correlation between the practice of twisting Bible passages into allegory and heretical teachings and cults.

We can look at the history of Christianity since the apostles and we will see a reoccurring pattern between allegory and heresy. The first heretics of Christianity were legalists that wanted to put Jews that found the Messiah back under Jewish law. Soon after, we know that Gnostic heretics became a plague within Christianity. They made scriptures allegorical so it would comply with their old and new mystical beliefs.

12 steps to Laodicea

I of course believe the Lord’s seven letters to seven churches in Revelation 2 and 3 had meanings to the seven historical churches that the letters are addressed to. Even so, the seven letters also gives instruction to all believers. I also believe that these letters are prophetically addressing the seven eras of the Church age on earth.

In the prophetic application Jesus is talking to the predominate visible Christian identity on earth. The letters are in chronological sequence. Jesus speaks prophetically to each person within these seven visible identities through the words in these seven letters.

For the purpose of this post, I will just reflect on the prophetic.… continue reading

Harbinger hucksters peddling blood moons and American chronicles

Christians will not get so easily mislead by the hucksters of harbingers peddling blood moons and American chronicles if they just checked out the context of the scriptures being abused for themselves. I will give a couple of examples.

Mat 24:36 “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.

I don’t know how many times I have heard Bible prophecy speculators say that the Rapture will occur on the Feast of Trumps because Jesus said it will occur on a day that nobody knows. They claim that Jesus in Matthew 24:36 was using a Jewish idiom and was actually telling people that the Rapture would occur on the Feast of Trumpets.

Alt-right and racists are not synonymous but Leftists keep pushing for civil war

Americans and even Christians in America are using the jargon invented by radical leftists. The Southern Baptist Convention overwhelmingly just condemned the alt-right. Do the people in the SBC who voted against the alt-right even know that alt-right is a term made up by the left to ostracize those that do not agree with the Republican establishment.

Alt-right to leftists are those that support the Tea Party, constitutional government, nationalism and biblical values. The left and mainstream media believe people like Cruz, Paul, Palin, Bannon, etc. are leaders of the alt-right. They say news sites like Breitbart, WND, American Thinker, FrontPage, Info Wars, etc., are alt-right.
