Compromisers – Do Not Let Him Into Your Home

CompromisersFellowshipping 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

 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.

    Hi Debs,

    I do not watch many youtube videos, but this is one I felt drawn to watch today, and I want to share it with you all. Be prepared to be shocked and disgusted. Pray for the people involved.. and keep going strong in exposing men and women like these false teachers/wolves!

  2. redeemed says:

    Myfanwy, thank you for posting this video. Very telling. Maybe someone can answer this – I was wondering why Copeland is making the sign with his LEFT hand while the others are doing so with their RIGHT hand? Does it make a difference if a person is left or right hand dominant? That just seemed interesting to me.

  3. Hanelie says:

    Oh, Myfanwy, I’ve just started watching it and I am already disgusted, feeling sick over it. I thank God that I only tried a charismatic church for a short while and remained skeptical while I was there. It was by His Divine protection only that I refused (repeatedly) to go up for prayer, to be laid hands upon.

    I’ve been buried in reading the past two days after meeting the author of another similar website to this one (but more focused on happenings in Dutch and other Reformed Church circles). After reading about post-modernism and liberalism (pantheism and panentheism and a/non-theist Christianity)in reformed churches, and about the infiltration by the emergent movement (an reading the unholy, ungodly debates and language of church leaders), I am feeling an urge to break all remaining ties with this “church” IMMEDIATELY, to obtain all our membership certificates, baptism seals and what not and get rid of it … asap.

    Although I had known that many things were wrong in the DRC, and had a good idea of what was wrong (what is right? how can I see it so clearly now and not earlier?) which I used to attend, the utter depth of wrongness I came across more recently is … sickening.

    Nothing of it should be shocking, and yet it still is.

    I cry for all those attending these churches every Sunday. How can I not speak out? How can we remain quiet? For the first time, I really, really understand why people like Deborah are (and keep) doing what they are doing. And, why we cannot claim to love people if we are not willing to take a stand and warn.

    Redeemed: there is a difference…it is this…”the right hand path”…white magic. The “left hand path”…black magic. Although I’ve seen some, like Pat Robertson, use both.

    >> Although I’ve seen some, like Pat Robertson, use both.

    He is a confused satanist. LOL

    >> there is a difference…it is this…”the right hand path”…white magic. The “left hand path”…black magic.

    You know…even the darkest satanists know that there is no such thing was white magic, only fools think there is such a thing as white magic. Maybe Pat Robertson is not so confused after all ROTFL.

  6. Marion says:

    Debs…how right you are! Just like there is no such thing as “good” witches and “bad” witches…but to them…it makes some kind of difference…go figure! But if one googles…you will find…

  7. Marion says:

    Brannon Howse…he’s a right handed satanic saluter.

  8. On a serious note, there is no difference as to which hand you use. Yes, left hand path does refer to black magic but showing the Sign of Satan with your hands can be left, right or both hands. Maybe the more serious evil satanist will only use his left hand and denounce those who use their right as being traitors. Serious, there are factions within satanism… to be more evil than the next. Some satanists (who have no clue) even view Wiccans to be of a Christian nature. Some even view Freemasonry to be Christian. And then you have Wiccans who don’t believe in Satan, but believe that Satanists worship Satan and that to go that route is bad news… talk about confusion.

    I’m so glad you put this article up. There is something that has been bothering me for some time. I read News24 to keep up with what is happening in our country and around the world, as I do not watch TV.

    The worrying thing is that there is a section on News24 where people can write their own articles and post them. Then the readers get a chance to comment on them. Of late, alot of articles have been about dismissing Christianity, God and Jesus. As an example, [if I’m allowed to, I’ll put a link here, but please remove it if you want]:

    Now the articles are usually [mostly, always] terrifying [sad, disgusting] for a Christian to read BUT the people that give their opinions are pure evil. Most [seems like all of them] are athiests and they are very proud to say so. The blasphemy is intolerable.

    The thing that worries me is that it is only athiests posting and hardly ever a Christian that would defend the Word of God. Sometimes there is one little voice trying to show Gods Glory but he is shut down in milli-seconds. These athiests are very informed about Christianity and well educated.

    I always skip over those type of topics but I decided to read one the other day as there were so many of them. It will be 10 minutes of my life that I will never get back, 10 minutes spent on hate, destruction, evil and pain. I felt sick afterwards.

    It is a little confusing that God told us to be disciples, knowing that man is wicked and most will not change their ways. So do we only concentrate on the few that want to listen and keep each other on the right track? Are we to leave “those wicked” to their own devices?

  10. Redeemed says:

    Satan is the author of confusion, so the Bible says.
    I would say this is certainly true. All of this comes from a common source.
    Witches like to say they are not Satanists, but in fact they are.
    There are only 2 forces in the world, one is the truth of God and the other is a lie from Satan.

    Even atheists worship Satan but they don’t know it.

    Simple, yet confusing.

  11. Micheline

    Someone that de-converts from Christianity was never a Christian to start off with and their heart never loved Jesus to begin with.

    We can spend a certain amount of time defending the gospel and preaching the truth, but ultimately if their heart is open for the Holy Spirit to do His work when we preach God’s Word will make an impact, if the person is closed to hearing the Truth, then there is nothing more we can do, but pray and hope they come around. But to befriend the unbeliever (as the Emergents do) is unbiblical.

    And Jesus said to the disciples…

    Luke 9:5
    5 And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them. (Matt 10:14; Mark 6:11; Luke 10:11; Acts 13:51; Acts 18:6)

  12. Redeemed says:

    Micheline, your question is valid and important.

    The topic of media and the explosion of knowledge in electronics and communication has been brought up previously. It has an up side and a down side.
    On the one hand, it is good that people can access this site and get the truth, but on the other hand there are multitudes of others that promote lies. That is how the world has always been, but now on a much larger scale.

    Personally, I think we have to use wisdom in these things. The world has such a skewed concept of “Christianity” that I don’t think it is worth the effort to post on secular sites. It is like casting pearls into a pig pen.

    As believers I think where we have the most impact is on blogs like this where we can reach across the miles and encourage others who have an ear to hear.

    And most importantly, reach out to the circle of influence the Lord has placed you in – sharing the Gospel and being a witness to those who cross your path on a daily basis. The world has become a very impersonal place and seeing Christ being lived out and hearing the true gospel message is refreshing in such a desert of lies and misconceptions.

  13. Myfanwy Brown says:

    The sign of satan is everywhere, ‘celebrities’ use it as well, as royalty and politicians. It is sickening that they are so brazen about showing it. I have also heard from wiccans that they are not satan worshippers..absolute rubbish!

    Occasionally I see some music videos on TV, and I feel disgusted. They are blatantly sexual and demonic. Recently I saw Cheryl Cole on the Stand Up for Cancer program, and there was quite a discussion going around about her miming as you could not hear her sing. Anyway, that did not interest me one bit, what I noticed, and I have seen her do it before, is that she constantly puts her hand between her legs and uses other sexual movements that I did not see her use before. She has become much more sexually overt since hooking up with from The Black Eyed Peas. (see DTW article) This is something that I have seen singers doing more and more.

    Please do not think that I watch alot of this stuff, I sometimes come on it when searching channels for something decent to watch, and sometimes I do purposely look just to see what they are doing now..but a few minutes is more than enough to make me feel ill. I have sons who watch this stuff and I am constantly trying to point out to them, the evil in all this garbage.

    Another thing I have seen advertised is a program called SWITCH.. about some young girls who are witches, I told my 18 year old son not to even watch the advert. Sadly, the youth are being brainwashed to think all this evil is quite ‘normal’. First there was all these films and series about this..withcraft is being sold as ‘fun’.

    I was watching the news the other day and an advert came on for a program that is going to be aired soon.. I do not remember the name of it, but this guy doing the voice over said, ‘now that more people are realising that there IS NO GOD’ !! I have written into programs before to complain of the content, and I intend to find out the name of this program and I am going to email them. It infuriates me!

    We all really need to pray for our children and youth..satan is attacking them heavily through this evil music and these TV programs. That is why I am also against Disney cartoons and others.. satan comes as an angel of light, whilst accosting our kids with violence, which is supposed to be funny. Computer games are another avenue for the devil to reach our children. Those of you with young children, I beseech you and pray that you will be ruthless to, and stand strong in eliminating these things out of your families lives. For those of you with older children, pray for them constantly and speak to them about what all this really means behind the devil’s cloak of entertainmemnt.

  14. Redeemed says:

    Not to mention Lady Gaga, Madonna, etc. I see where they are going to have Beyonce at the Super Bowl. Think of the audience – it is a form of hypnotism and allowing evil spirits to enter people’s minds.

    We know the world will wax more and more evil. It is sad to see that the Church has failed to do what it was called to do and has allowed leaven and false teaching to rule and reign.
