Many Christians are embracing:
- Books and movies with distorted views of God and/or immoral themes. (resources to help you discern truth and error: No Shades of Grey, Things to Consider About The Shack, 5 Lies About God's Character in "The Shack", 5 Ways "The Shack" Contradicts Biblical Salvation, Even the Smell of Coffee)
- Popular non-Biblical philosophies. (Self-Esteem Philosophy and Scripture, God's Love is Better Than Unconditional)
- Cultural views of right and wrong. (Hard Teachings; Homosexuality; Transgenderism; Biblical Sexuality, Abortion)
- Activities associated with false religions. (Yoga & Tai Chi; Occult practices; Deuteronomy 18:9-12; 1Corinthians 10:14-33)
Jude 1:3: contend for the faith
2 Corinthians 10:5: We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God
Titus 1:9: hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught
Ephesians 5:11: Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. (also 2 Corinthians 6:14-18)
1 Thessalonians 5:21: test everything that is said. Hold on to what is good. (also Psalm 101:3; Romans 12:9)
1 John 4:1: do not believe everyone... test them…there are many false prophets in the world.
Dear Christians, let’s quit flirting with the Devil! Let's not see how far we can get from Biblical principles and still be safe. Let's live unashamedly close to the Lord (Mark 8:38).
