We’ve talked before about the coming church division, but it’s interesting even liberal progressive “Christians” have come to the conclusion a split will soon come.
I believe we’ll eventually find two basic coalitions: Traditional Evangelicals and Progressive Evangelicals. …
He goes on to state how each group views the Bible:
- Traditional — The Bible is the inspired, inerrant, authoritative Word of God.
- Liberal — Christianity is a “lifestyle”, with the Bible of less importance. Thus, social justice becomes more important than the Bible (which makes since, since social justice isn’t in the Bible, you’ll have to minimize the Bible if you’re for social justice), or as the author said “the emphasis is more on growth thru the process of work and serving others” — also known as the heresy of the church and the common good.
Notice the liberal view of Christianity is nothing more than the old philosophy of value relativism, where everyone does what is right in their own eyes and absolute authority doesn’t exist — that may be truth for you, but not for me — and the Bible no longer holds the place of authority.
Of course, truth is truth, whether you accept it or not, like it or not, or believe it or not.
Progressive “Christians” absorb godless philosophy, agreeing with Richard Dawkins as he said no absolutes exist, and morality comes from popular opinion, not absolute truth. Liberals repackage godless philosophy (whether they realize it or not), wrapping it with a thin candy shell of religion hiding the toxic poison inside; it’s not wise for the church to adopt techniques from someone admiring satan and rebellion.
You must choose a position — will you choose the absolute truth of the Bible, or will you minimize it to accept man’s godless philosophy of value relativism (even if wrapped in religious terms) where the Bible is minimized?
It’s time to decide what you believe and make a stand … because it’s 2:59AM and even those reducing the importance of the Bible realize a split into traditional Christianity and liberal “Christianity” espousing heresies like social justice, common good, and collective salvation will soon be upon us.
Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. (Jude 3–4)
But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. (2 Peter 2:1–2)
