Pseudo Christianity now rules post Christian America

Most institutional Christianity in America today is pseudo Christianity. It has the appearance of Christianity but it is just a religious facade led by wolves in sheep’s clothing and hirelings lording over a flock of mostly goats. The leaders of pseudo Christianity appear as shepherds but they speak with a forked tongue.

Pseudo Christianity is now the vast majority in America. That is why astute Christian people are saying that America is now a post Christian nation even though over 70 percent of American adults still claim to be Christian.

100 pointers that should help you understand, identify or avoid pseudo Christianity:

  91. The cultural war in America was lost because America’s pseudo Christian leaders never showed up for the war.

  94. Pseudo Christian pastors do not lead the flock to green pastures, they will send their goats toward the gates of hell.

  99. Some pseudo Christian false teaching claims that America is a Christian nation and even has a covenant relationship with God just like Israel.
  100. Some churches believe their church is a place for unbelievers to meet and to be entertained. This is their pseudo Christian way to grow the church.

I am sure you can add your own list to my list. Knowing these things, you should see pseudo Christianity is now the rule in at least 90 percent of what is called Christianity in America. True Christianity is abiding in the doctrine of Christ. The post Christian culture in America still has the appearance of Christianity but for the most part it is a worldly religious counterfeit.

In one sense the institutional church has become just like her mother Israel. She is going into harlotry with the world just like Israel did. I guess the institutional church will not be in any position to point fingers at Israel when God gives unmerited grace to Israel and restores her.

Believers are not told to assemble each Sunday in a building full of pseudo Christians but that is increasingly becoming the new reality in America. Believers are told to go out to those that have not heard the good news and to make those that hear the gospel disciples of Jesus Christ.

The apostle Paul makes it clear that salvation is a result of God’s grace. It is given to those that believe in God’s righteousness to save those that place their trust in His righteousness and salvation. I hope you will believe and be saved because accepting or rejecting this free gift from God embodied in the God/man Jesus determines your eternal fate. Pseudo Christianity that is now so evident in America will not save anyone.

Pseudo Christianity now rules post Christian America — 25 Comments

  1. Having grown up In churches which teach many of the above things, I will state that it takes a lot of Bible study to discard the teachings which are not in accordance with the Bible. For example, it took me a number of years to understand that salvation is not conditional on how I acted today but is God’s grace freely given.

    This is a good post and sadly way too accurate. Besides your own, have you any single website which you would refer others that may be in one of these organizations, where good doctrine is taught (I can think of two or three but on your blog the recommendation, if any, should be yours).

  2. I can’t say any specific site would agree with all my points but there are many that would agree with most of them.

    Many of the biblical discernment sites would agree.

    For example, just off the top of my head, Brannon Howse, Mike Gendron, Roger Oakland, and Bob DeWaay and on YouType, Jacob Prash and Charley Garatt on Superior word.

  3. Well, sad but true. All of it. But the Lord always has a remnant. When the Rapture does happen, I don’t believe it will have much impact on the world overall. And if it happens during a time of war, it will be even easier to explain away.

    Maybe the only reason to go find a “church building” to visit on Sunday is to stand up in the middle of the service, and loudly call out the errors being espoused. But you would likely only get one, maybe two shots at it before being bounced.(sarcasm) but really, I’ve often thought of doing just that. You could even dress the part of a prophet of old. Now, that might be too entertaining, and the goats would applaud, thinking it was a cleverly conceived part of the service.

    It’s just amazing at how fast things are going down hill, but, it started nearly a hundred years ago. There was some effort to reverse this, when the Baptist had the major upheaval and the Fundamentalists broke away. But even they have largely been corrupted into this move towards mysticism, new age, ecumenical movement at large. I was shocked a few years back when I wrote to the editor of Lighthouse Trails about two Fundamentalist Schools, and they wrote back with evidence they were moving into the same errors of mysticism, mind altering, prayer movement that all the other major schools had. And it has to do with accreditation. The world has infiltrated, and the takeover is nearly complete.

  4. Jack Impe hits #34 on a daily basis lol.

    That being said, I don’t attend church, and to be honest I don’t like to. I’m not a very outgoing talkative person. I don’t like the chit chat about mundane things that 95% of the world does. The message the pastor gives, while maybe biblically sound, never touches on hot topics like politics, hell, etc.. In fact it just gets me angry that the church as a whole is allowing this evil to spread across the nation. My in laws hound me for not going to church and think I must not be a true christian when that is obviously not true. I just see no reason to go.

  5. One of the main reasons to fellowship with other Christians is so that your spiritual gift or gifts can be used in the service of other Christians. I am not saying you need to attend a Sunday church service to do that.

  6. I think you covered it all Don. I pretty much gave up looking for a Church. I just read the Bible and sites like yours, Rapture Ready, & a few others. The whole lot of churches have been deceived or are afraid to offend anyone rather than preaching the word. I don’t want to hear stories of how a Pastors week went and spin that into a few bible verses. Most don’t even point out our sins and need for repentance.

  7. You know Don, maybe you might start holding a get together for breakfast on Saturday morning. Invite someone you meet at one of the churches you visit. It might give you time to feel them out, or even persuade them to your way of thinking. Point being, that dear friend and Brother I mentioned who passed on not long ago, that’s what he did. And even one Saturday every other month invite the wives along. This became even more important after many in the church turned against him, because he dared to speak out,but he was founding member still attending, but gradually dropped off until he quit going. Those weekly breakfast get togethers were good for him.

  8. For once, I don’t think I could add anything more to what has been said. This might be the best piece of yours I have ever read. Unfortunately, it is all true. I cannot see or believe how we can have much time left here, and I do believe things are going to continue to accelerate towards our departure. The Rubicon HAS been crossed.

  9. Something like that becomes likely but I first will have to decide on which congregation I am going to visit regularly. People generally do not meet people to fellowship with by just attending a Sunday worship service. They have to take part in other church activities.

  10. 65.. I hear that one a lot!

    How about the persons that party like nothing drink like fish but when a job or career move is in the balance they go to church so God will help them.

    Actually it’s covered under the “love the world” one.

    # 8 gets me, it’s a argument u can’t win w/ someone that grew up praying to saints & Marry. I said to some family that are Catholic that all true believers are saints & gave the scripture (I was ready) then I got “oh wow I didn’t know that”

    Good article Don. Man I can’t wait until we are raptured! Hollywood is priming the public for the deception I can soo see that w/ all the programming tv shows. We are so close God personally told me 🙂 just kidding.

  11. Jim said…

    “Jack Impe hits #34 on a daily basis lol.”

    While I don’t agree with all that Jack Van Impe says, nor his conjecture on many issues…JVI quotes Jesus as The Only Way To Salvation since I’ve been watching him for several years.

    I don’t agree on that comment.

  12. David,

    My comment was intended to say that JVI preaches AGAINST the idea that all paths lead to heaven. I know he regularly attacks “chrislam” for the fraud it is.

    Don,

    What’s your opinion on Kent Hovind? I’ve been following him since he got out of prison. I love how he attacks evolution, but he also strongly believes the church will go through the tribulation (which all of us here disagree with).

  13. “I’m going to church.” What is that??? It’s a ridiculous concept in our “sacred church building” era we live in. But as believers, it isn’t an option, it is a commandment in scripture that we fellowship together (Col 3:16, Heb 10:25, 2 Tim 4:2, Eph 4:12, acts 9:31-32, acts 2:42). Not doing so because it is annoying, uncomfortable, not edifying, not useful, etc. is a rejection of His Will.

    The question is, how do we do obey? Are we, sheep as we are, to go into a building every week and trust and follow shepherds that may be leading the flock astray? And then comes the challenge to find meaningful fellowship among lost sheep. The shepherds are put in their place on divine authority (Thes 5:12) We know and recognize that they are human, with human weakness and sin, so we know they aren’t going to be perfect. So at what point, at what level of “failure” in the duties a leader has been appointed, does a sheep turn and go another way?

    A pastor of a church I was attending recently invited a Myles Monroe disciple to teach in front of his congregation. Of course he was teaching pure crap. When I questioned the pastor why he would allow a false teacher among his flock, he advised that I must learn to chew the meat and spit out the bones. That I need to practice more grace with church leaders. However, my problem with this advice is that sheep, who are known for going astray and for being foolish, sheep who are not anointed as leaders, sheep who are called to follow, will be unable to discern meat from bones and choke. But certainly it is no small thing for a silly, foolish sheep to cry out saying that all the shepherds appear to be incompetent! It is like the sheep is rejecting authority, even God’s authority. But all around me seems to be compromise. Shepherds are so often turning from God’s Word and instead are turning to human thought, writings and processes, so many of them faulty, ecumenical, gnostic, or human-centric with only faint shadows and allusions to God’s truth. Pastors who access, affirm, and encourage teachings of CS Lewis, Blackaby, Ken Ham, Norman Vincent Peale (Guidepost), Billy Graham, Chuck Colson, etc., even the Roman Catholic church, ALL of whom, at times, have offered terrifying half truths and a tainted gospel message.

    Furthermore, pastors seem to be much too busy with church business to spend time with a sheep who has questions, who is hungry and wanting so badly to be fed the meat of scripture.

    I Cor 11:17 would suggest that our struggle is not a new development and that we must keep going, continue to fellowship, and to stay strong and courageous. Computerized fellowship is extremely valuable but I wonder if we can effectively minister to one another the way God intended. I often think of the young church of the New Testament and the great love they had for one another, sustaining each other both physically and spiritually.

  14. Note taken on the good points in your comment. However, I think there is a fundamental problem with your belief that hireling pastors are put there by divine authority. The erroneous belief that institutional churches have pastors from God leading the congregation and that Christians should follow these hirelings and control freaks is why they are reigning in pseudo Christianity.

    Paul in Thes 5:12 is saying that Christian should take note of those that teach Christians in the ways of the Lord. In general these hirelings are not doing that and they are not pastors. The history of the institutional churches proves many of their leaders were Satanic plants. It is no different today.

    The Church model is a plurality of elders not a ruling pastor lording over the congregation. The pastor of true Christians is our Lord.

    Christian fellowship should not only be on line. We don’t even know how much longer that type of fellowship will exist. We are in for a rude awaking if we think the near future will be anything like it has been over the last few decades.

  15. Wow! This is great! I’m going to bookmark this page. Thank you for this. My mother in law watches word of faith preaching because it makes her feel good and Benny Hinn and I constantly warn her. I’m going to show her this.

  16. Thanks for the input, Don. You’re right. As far back as I can remember, pastors and teachers were to me a vision of divine authority and wisdom. They were selected by the elders to teach the flock. They were trained and ordained and, because of that and their selection by prayerful elders, my understanding was that they possessed special insights into scripture. Of course if a “church” is to stay intact, the elders, pastors and teachers must agree so in my mind they’re lumped altogether in the same category of church leadership.

    1 Thessalonians 5:12-13 states: “Now we ask you, brothers, to respect those who work hard among you, who are over you in the Lord and who admonish you. Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work.”

    And Hebrews 13:17 KJV “Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account. Obey them so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no advantage to you.”

    Judging from the audience and the overall context of these passages, I understood these as referring to elders, pastors and teachers. It commands me to obey them. They are over us, and they admonish us. This would of course indicate a certain amount of lordship or leadership over the flock. Maybe my hermeneutics are wrong?

    Based on these verses (along with others that address general church government), I feel compelled to quietly obey the leadership. I worry constantly that I am just a renegade thinker, someone described in Titus 3:10-11. Because, I think to myself, how on earth can I possibly be the only one in this entire church that notices the problem with this thing that was just said, taught, etc? While 90% of what is said from the pulpit is great, 10% of the time I’m squirming in the pew, completely agitated because I can’t reconcile what was just said with what I know of scripture. And I know from experience that questioning the pastor or elders just gets me into big trouble. So most of the time, I just sit there quietly, my head swirling, feeling like I’m going insane (and gagging on the bones).

    There is of course the mega-church model (Calvary Chapels). They may be better at teaching truth but there is still sometimes some question that might come up or something you need to discuss (especially about their view of salvation by our decision, our act of faith) but there is little or no meaningful discussion or interaction with the leadership. It feels more like a show you attend. After 15 years of attendance at our Calvary Chapel, I never even met the pastor or saw him up close and a couple of conversations with disinterested assistant pastors. I think this model is in danger of positioning the pastor(s) into movie star role instead of shepherd. Because of the size of the popularity of the leadership, the followers seem to take on a sense of worship of the leaders.

    I will add to all of this that being a woman brings with it an added dimension of difficulty. I have wondered whether its proper for me to even participate (comment) on this blog or to just quietly listen in (1 Cor 14:35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church).

    So I go back to my original post about pastors and church leadership along with a couple of questions: Are there in fact shepherds/leaders who are positioned to tend to the flock? And, if so (this one a bit rhetorical) where are they? And why is it that this sheep feels so completely abandoned?

  17. Julie,

    If u think for yourself that doesn’t make u a renegade thinker & u should be able to ask anything to any so called leader of a church. Keep in mind that not all church leaders have your best interest at heart.

    Just because a mouse is in a cookie jar doesn’t make that mouse a cookie. Just because someone either leads or assist in leading some church doesn’t make him a leader, could be a wolf in sheep clothing. bahhh

  18. Those scriptures you quoted are not saying that you should obey wolves in sheep’s clothing and hirelings that care nothing about the sheep.

    My article claims that about 90 percent of what is now called Christianity in America is really pseudo Christianity. If you are among the other ten percent you are mostly among true Christians and scripture about your elders would apply.

    It could be that you are feeling abandoned because your elders are not following a biblical model. That does not mean they are pseudo Christians but it could mean that they are conforming more to the American pseudo Christian church model than the Biblical one.

  19. Julie brought up some interesting points. A few I used to struggle with. I understand how she’s trying to be scriptural in an unscriptural world.

    Leaders are sheep too but when they start believing they are rulers the trouble begins. What obedience do they ask the “sheep” to conform to? Things on Don’s above mentioned list?

    The churches around here are so small they don’t even have elders. There’s usually a part time pastor who has a full time secular job, and maybe a paid music director and a youth director who gets paid for teaching a Sunday School class of three. Everyone wants to get paid. Seems like no one volunteers their service for the Lord anymore.

    Women should be quiet in church. Apparently that doesn’t include teaching Sunday School?

    I had a phone conversation with a pastor once and I asked him what his position was on replacement theology. He said, “What’s replacement theology?” So I explained it to him. Was that disobedience because of my gender? I didn’t think so.

    Or take the pastor I knew who took it to an extreme. A small group of us from the church were sitting in his living room one afternoon having a conversation about nothing in particular when his wife innocently tried to enter the conversation. “Shut up, Cheryl,” he snapped.
    The same thing happened on another day. I high-tailed it out of that church. I don’t care what he preaches I’m not following that jerk.

    I like being single and am quite capable of understanding without having to ask a husband so I may be wrong but I think there is more to that passage than just ‘shut up, you’re a woman.’

    I got off on something there but it’s about following and obedience; the line between scripture and pseudo scripture.

  20. Don, As a long-retired staff writer and columnist for a major city daily, I can appreciate the research, time and effort you put into these timely articles…This one especially. Keep them coming Brother. Your’s in His service, Tom

  21. Most pseudo Christian believe that there religion is what saves them. They have the religion of Cain, the works of their own hands, Instead of the righteousness that Christ gives freely by His blood sacrifice. Most are trusting in their own righteousness.

    First John 1:8 says, If you say you have no sin, you are a liar and do not the truth. Rather than trust in Jesus and His righteousness, they are trusting in their own righteousness. They have to make themselves perfect, as they believe their righteousness will get them to heaven.

    For pseudo Christians it is all about what they are doing for God, rather than what Jesus did for us.
    They are trying to earn their salvation through good works instead of doing good works because of what Jesus has done for us. Most are still living under the law instead of a love relationship with Jesus because He first loved us. They go about trying to establish their own righteousness through obedience to laws, rituals of obedience, and rules of conduct.

    They have no love for Jesus. Who needs Jesus when you are already perfect in your own eyes. They believe they have made themselves righteous not realizing they are sinners and can only be saved by trusting in Christ’s righteousness which comes by faith.

    If we could have kept the law, then Jesus died in vain. Obeying the law just fills us with pride and self righteousness. Doing those things in the law because we love Jesus for giving us the free gift of salvation is true Christianity. Most love themselves more than God. Maybe they have just lost their first love. It is getting harder to tell the sheep from the goats.

    If history repeats itself, the religious leaders of today are the Pharisees when Jesus came the first time.

  22. A fake Christianity for a fake nation with a fake president for its mostly fake christians. How appropriate.

  23. We don’t have a fake president & fake country anymore b/c the real Christian patriots came to the polls. This country was never fake by the way just idiots running it.
