Fellowshipping with Compromisers
Guilt by association does not go down well with people who like to mingle with other people who happily accept false teaching – especially when they know the person they are befriending is not Christian.
In the Ecumenical worldview you are supposed to ‘show grace’ to everyone non-stop no matter how much they twist the Gospel of Jesus Christ to suit their desires.
The idea behind this notion is that if you don’t continue to show acceptance to someone of another faith you will never get them to accept Christ. Sounds great and works well if you are in nursery school. But when you grow up, you realise that this is a complete and utter fallacy.
Mankind is wicked and mankind will never change. So for mankind to be ‘nice’ and ‘merciful’ and ‘loving’ to fellow mankind is an utter joke. And anyone who thinks this is even remotely achievable must surely be joking. The Bible says man is wicked, mankind’s heart is wicked and the path is narrow. That few will follow Jesus Christ and many will follow after false Christs who teach false doctrines.
The new age Christian gospel is:
- If you smile and speak nice words to others and mention you are a Christian you will be seen to be a nice, loving Christian person.
- Do not tell someone that what they believe is wrong – this is not Christian.
- Do not offend anyone by telling them something they don’t want to hear.
- Do not preach the genuine gospel of Jesus Christ (the full message of salvation and repentance of sin) as this will chase people away – if people run away, you can’t convert them to Christ.
- The whole point of new age Christianity is that you want to keep the person as close a friend as possible to convert them to your way of thinking.
- If you are always the ‘nice’ one, no one can ever fault you for being in the wrong.
- All faiths have a common denominator and that is the New Age Christ.
- Always agree to disagree.
- If your statement of faith sounds good then the person or church is 100% Christian.
- You have to be accountable to someone ‘human’. So first man, second God.
- Always make sure you can give the name of a person or church you are accountable too – so they can vouch for your Christ-likeness.
- Do not think that Jesus Christ counts as someone to be accountable too, or preaching the correct gospel for that matter.
- Never ever warn anyone about someone who once seemed Christian and is now teaching false doctrine and leading people astray.
- Warning is a good work, so is repentance of sin. Building bridges is not a good work, it’s just hard work, like following Christ.
- And you can’t be held accountable for mingling with false teachers and ungodly people, because associating and agreeing with someone who is non-Christian is just not biblical. It’s called love.
2 John 1:9-11
9 Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; 11 for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds.
So how does one overcome this problem of being guilty by association. Well, it’s simple. You say, ‘I no longer agree that this person speaks the truth, and I no longer support them.’
If you made a mistake and were once upon a time fooled by someone proclaiming to be Christian and it turned out they weren’t, you speak out and say; ‘Yes, I was fooled, but I saw the error, I repented to Jesus for disobeying Him and I no longer want anything to do with this person.’ etc, etc, etc. Simple.
We are all prone to deception. If we say we can’t be deceive then we probably are. We have too constantly be on the lookout for thieves. Some thieves comes dressed in slightly more expensive sheep’s clothing than others. This makes it a bit more difficult to spot the lose stitching. But give it time and they come undone. They always do.
We forgive these people and we move on. We don’t continue to invite them over for supper in the hope they change their minds. One can ask Jesus for forgiveness of ones error at any time or place and sometimes outside the front door is a good place to start.
We all make mistakes, but a genuine Christian will realise our error (with the conviction of the Holy Spirit) /we admit it (mostly ashamed) / we repent (we have asked Jesus to forgive us for disobeying Him) / we don’t do it again because we love Jesus Christ.
The wolf makes a mistake / he is caught / he repents to the public / he changes his shaggy sheep outfit to new sheep outfit and carries on as before. Example: Benny Hinn has repented a few times for major things he has done, like stealing money and preaching false teaching. But did he change his ways? No.
