“But I fear that somehow your pure and undivided devotion to Christ will be corrupted, just as Eve was deceived by the cunning ways of the serpent. You happily put up with whatever anyone tells you, even if they preach a different Jesus than the one we preach, or a different kind of Spirit than the one you received, or a different kind of gospel than the one you believed…These people are false apostles. They are deceitful workers who disguise themselves as apostles of Christ. But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no wonder that his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness.”
~2 Corinthians 11:3-4; 13-15a
Much of modern western Christianity is increasingly becoming the sort of people the apostle Paul strongly warned against in Ephesians 4:14. Those who are “…tossed back and forth by the waves and blown here and there by every wind of teaching.”
Welcome to modern-day church! Self-help, positive-thinking, spirituality cloaked- prooftexted Bible passages have replaced a Biblical worldview. Outright spiritual lies about Jesus is presented as truth in nonfictional and fictional books, movies, and sermons. These outright lies are sought out and enjoyed by most Christians today; drawn in by repetitive emotional appeals, loving sounds and pleasantries. Despite this fact, they continue to teach a “Jesus” who did not die as the atoning sacrifice for our sins. They preach a “God” who, in the end does not care what a person does or how a person believes. They fail to show biblical evidence of eternal consequences for sin.
Who will listen to their warnings?
