Postmodern, post Bible, postmillennial and especially “Christian Pagans”, sounds like a contradiction in terms. However, that happens to be the reality in Christendum today.
Most people today who identify as Christians are postmodern in their thinking. They think truth is relative. They do not read the Bible. And many of the few percent that do read the Bible redefine it to conform to their Kingdom-Now Utopianism. They are much like the postmodern progressives that want the US Constitution to be a living document so that they can change the meaning with the politically correct wind.
They are postmillennial in Theology. They want to believe the Kingdom is on earth now and the world will have no tribulation. (I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow – Rev 18: 7.)
They also are becoming increasingly pagan in their beliefs and practices. They go into altered states to seek new knowledge from God outside of scripture. Contemplative prayer, spiritual formation, prophets, spiritual experiences, feeling God, etc. become substitutes for God’s infallible written word.
The whole Pentecostal signs and wonders, name it and claim it, Word of Faith prosperity movement morphed into Christian pagan mysticism and now this is spreading all over Christendum through the “Christian” pagan media.
I have politically incorrect news for everyone into this. Jesus is not calling and giving people private messages between their own two ears. When people empty their mind and get quiet enough to tune in and wait for messages from God they mostly will hear their own brain prattle and they might even hear the voice of demons.
Jesus speaks to us through His written word, through biblical meditation (mulling over what God revealed in scripture) and through other believers. The number one book in Christianity today is Jesus Calling. It has been revised several times to take out the more obvious heresy but the concept of Jesus Calling is rooted in pagan mysticism. Jesus calling according to the author was influenced by God Calling, and God calling was written by two women who received the book via automatic writing. Of course, in a later revision of Jesus Calling the God Calling connection was removed.
Bringing Hindu or other pagan practices into the church or one’s body and mind does not bring anyone to biblical truth. Christian churches need to take contemplative spirituality, holy yoga, holy laughter, holy water, holy oil, drumming circles, etc., out of their fellowships.
The early fathers and the reformers would walk out of most of our churches today and start all over again with biblical Christianity. Christendum obviously is now back into the heresy of Gnosticism. I think 2nd Peter and Jude are speaking about things found in later day Christendum.
And if anyone thinks the Roman Catholic Church has changed its pagan ways and is now teaching Christian doctrine. And that true Christians should unite with them. I suggest they listen to what was said by Judge Scalia’s Priest son at Scalia’s Funeral Mass. What was said, is not biblical truth being taught, nor is it the true Christian faith. These priests have great faith in Babylonian rooted Roman Catholic doctrine but this kind of doctrine does not come from anything that God said.
Nevertheless, the postmodern, post Bible, postmillennial, Christian pagans of Christendum think being one in Christ is having unity with others that have false pagan Christianity as they apparently also now have. In reality they are only united in harlotry.
More and more postmodern, post Bible, postmillennial, Christian pagans are taking over top levels of all Christian denominations. Much of that is occurring because young people are taught postmodern thinking in public schools. There they are brainwashed with socialism and humanism.Then they go on to seminaries and Bible colleges and they are taught neo-Gnosticism, Spiritual Formation, and worldly ways rather than teaching them proper exegesis of the scriptures.
A young man goes to Bible college to learn the Bible so that he can teach others and he comes out indoctrinated with Postmillennial Theology, Spiritual Formation, Jesus Calling and how to be CEO of a Christianized pagan day care entertainment center. (But, they still dare to call these places churches.)
I have warned about what is happening in other articles, but it is important to rehash this again since it is influencing much of the world and is now so prevalent in America. There are false teachers that created a movement that has hijacked evangelical premillennial Christianity.
These false teachers are selling Postmillennial, Dominion Theology just about everywhere in Christendum. The problem is that the Bible does not teach Postmillennial or Amillennial Theology. When scriptures is taken literally as the authors intended, the Bible only teaches Premillennial Theology.
Today’s Postmillennial Theology comes from false presumptions created by false teachers that refuse to take what the Bible says literally. They spiritualize or make allegory clear teachings for no other reason than a Christianized world fits their social justice socialist Utopian worldview. It fits the Kingdom reign they believe they are to establish on earth before Jesus can return.
They tell others that there is no literal Kingdom for a literal physical Israel when the Bible clearly teaches that there literally will be a physical and spiritual restoration of the nation of Israel. It occurs after the times given to the Gentiles are fulfilled.
They teach that the Church is now the Lord’s promised Kingdom on earth and the Church needs to take possession of the world for Christ. However, the Bible teaches that the world will reject Christ. (As did Israel and as Christendum is now doing with their redefining of the Lord’s word.)
The Bible does not teach the false teaching of these neo-Gnostics that think they get direct revelation from God. Nevertheless, their false teachings and presumptions are found all over the Christian airwaves, in book stores and on the Internet. There is a Christian Mafia controlling the “Christian” media that sells neo-Gnostic pagan concepts. Those teaching sound doctrine are becoming rare on big “Christian” media. And those with biblical discernment that oppose the false teachers that the Christian Mafia promotes never get heard.
The Christian pagans are also influencing American politics because these postmillennialists believe that Christians have to take over the world. They call this process of Christianizing the world “seven mountains” or “seven spheres of influence” they must take over. When you hear those terms being used you can be sure that postmillennial Dominion Theology Christian pagans are doing the talking.
Almost all Christian seminars being offered to the public today teach some sort of Christian mysticism that is directly related to pagan spiritualism.
The concept behind some of this spiritualism is that mankind lost dominion to Satan and now humans have to take dominion back from Satan by spiritual force. That is false teaching and it limits God to human performance. It takes away Gods sovereignty. They teach that God needs human intervention to defeat Satan because God gave dominion of the earth to man but man lost it to Satan and God cannot directly intervene because dominion of the earth no longer belongs to Him. Poor God!! God gave away control of the earth!! He needs humans to help Him!! Where is that taught??
Some In the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) say that the early Church failed because it did not take dominion back from Satan. They suggest that the Church failed and God failed, but through some technicality God will get another chance to get the earth back from Satan. That will occur through specially anointed third wave spiritual humans who will defeat Satan and take back dominion of the earth and then give it to Jesus. That is ass backwards Jackass Theology. It is nothing but blasphemy. God never lost control of anything. And the true Church was never defeated by Satan. God is Sovereign.
I wrote a long article on this Dominion Theology false teaching and where it leads. It is important to know this because this is the philosophy of the Christian pagan mafia and the Revelation 17 harlot that they are promoting.
Postmillennial Dominion Theology is even playing out in the 2016 Republican election. Trump, Cruz, and Rubio are being influenced by the false teachers of postmillennialism and Dominion Theology. If any of the three are elected, the postmillennial Christian leaders will try to influence their administrations. That would not necessarily be bad for America unless it leads to tyranny in America. In reality Dominion Theology will probably lead to a pagan secular backlash and bring persecution against true Christians. Even so, some of Christendum’s leaders have no problem with “Christian” tyranny if it helps establish their own concept of the Kingdom of God on earth.
There are a lot of pseudo Christian voices now jumping in bed together for the sake of unity for unity sake. Unity with those that have a false gospel on the false concept of establishing a false Kingdom on earth by uniting with worldly leaders is nothing but harlotry with the Satanic world system. It is the makings of the Harlot of Revelation 17.
There will be no literal Kingdom of God on earth before the physical return of Jesus. However, there certainly will be a false Satanic Kingdom before Jesus returns. Revelation calls it Babylon the Great. It is destroyed by God just before Jesus comes back to set up God’s real Kingdom on earth from Jerusalem, Israel.
It gets really strange when the Pope is uniting with so-called Evangelicals and Evangelical leaders are uniting with the likes of Glenn Beck, Kenneth Copeland, and leaders of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) Dominion Theology cult.
They accept Beck as a Christian but Beck is a New Age Mormon. Mormons are in a demonic cult. They have pagan doctrine. Call them Christian pagans, but don’t call Mormons Christians. And New Age is nothing more than a revival of old age pagan pantheism and polytheism. Much of Word of Faith and NAR is New Age paganism disguised in Christian clothing.
There is much confusion among those in the postmillennial Dominion Theology camp even among themselves. Why do these people even believe that they could unite on anything – even politics? You have Charismatic Pentecostals and Word of Faith leaders supporting a presidential candidate that does not believe what they believe, but then they reject a candidate that seems to believe in Kingdom-Now Theology.
For example Sarah Palin and Pat Robertson are supporting pseudo Christian Donald Trump, but they are in the Word of Faith and NAR Dominion Theology camp. Cruz would be a much better fit with their beliefs but they are hostile toward Cruz because they think He won’t win. They must think that they have to sneak into their Kingdom-Now by kissing up to influential worldly people.
On the other hand, you have Glenn Beck and David Barton attacking Trump like he was some demon from hell and supporting Cruz in the name of Christian Reconstructionism Dominion Theology. However, Trump would be a far better fit for their belief in a false revival with a restored “Christian America”. I guess personalities and pragmatism trumps Dominion Theology with the Christian pagans that have become media stars.
I could mention others but I think you get the picture. Everyone is nuts. Christendum in America is nuts. Postmillennial Theology is nuts. The whole depraved world is obviously rapidly going nuts.
2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Christianity is becoming more and more paganized because so-called Christians will not study the scriptures to show themselves approved. They can’t be bothered with seeking out biblical truth in God’s word so they listen to “Christian” media guru’s that itch their ears with neo-Gnosticism, mysticism, and Postmillennial Kingdom-Now Theology. Then they seek out a church that uses frenzy to fan the Christian pagan flames. Or else, they look for some church that has a lot of ritual to make them feel more spiritual. They really are nothing more than Christian pagans or perhaps more accurately Christianized pagans.
True Christians should expect this to happen in the last days because scriptures tells us that it will. Nevertheless, seeing paganism take over our churches in the name of Jesus Calling is more than a little disconcerting.
Christendum is like her mother Israel. She is a harlot. I guess nobody within Christendum will be able to point fingers at Israel when God barfs out the Laodicean Christian pagans, ends the day of grace to the Gentiles, and chooses to restore grace to Israel.
