THERE IS SO MUCH DECIET IN TODAY'S CHURCHES! WHERE IN SCRIPTURE ARE WE COMMANDED TO OBSERVE CHRISTMAS OR EASTER? YOU MUST EXPOSE THESE FALSE TEACHERS!
Greetings in the precious Name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Thank you for your email on Deceit in Todays Churches.
There are indeed many false prophets and false teachers. The Lord warned us to be aware that no one deceives us.
There is a tremendous need for discernment. We must study the Word of God daily to see if these things be true.
You will see from our www.frontline.org.za and www.christianaction.org.za websites that we are very involved in seeking to expose the evils and deceptions of communism, secular humanism, radical Islam, false religions and the cowardice and compromise which is endemic in all too many areas and churches.
Nowhere in the Bible are we commanded to celebrate the Lord’s birth, although we are commanded to remember His death. We are also commanded to apply the Lordship of Christ to all areas of life.
Rather than celebrate humanistic pagan festivals such as Halloween, May Day, Worker’s Day, Youth Day, Woman’s Day, Freedom Day, etc. it certainly seems more appropriate to focus on essential doctrines such as the Incarnation, the Atonement, the Resurrection, the Ascension and Authority of Christ, the Power of Pentecost and Reformation Day, etc.
There is no doubt that the world has secularised, paganised, perverted and distorted everything it possibly can, including churches and Christian holidays. That does not stop us from seeking to disciple our children on a thoroughly Biblical basis and bring them up in the love and admonition of the Lord.
The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.
Please don’t get distracted into fighting fellow Christians who are sincerely trying to honour the Lord in all areas of life. We cannot know another person’s motives. Let’s deal with the big issues and the facts.
You may be interested in studying the attached document: The Authority of Christ and the First Day Sabbath. I would be interested in your reaction to it.
Have you seen my book: Answering Skeptics?
May God continue to bless, guide and strengthen you.
Yours for the fulfilment of the Great Commission
