What's Going On In The World?
GEORGE L. FAULL
Antony Flew, world’s most respected atheist has changed his mind. He is now an admitted deist (one who believes God created the world and went off and left it to run on its own with no revelation of His will to His creatures.). The thing that convinced him was the design of DNA. He reminded journalists that even Darwin required a creator to start it all. He also says that the resurrection of Jesus has more evidential support than any other miracle. His stumblingblock is the problem of evil in the world. He regards Islam with horror and fear due to their desire to conquer the world.
Robert Schuller, of the Glass Cathedral.
Two of Schuller’s students are Bill Hybels and Rick Warren. Schuller says we do wrong in making people aware that they are sinners. He stresses mans value instead of mans unworthiness. The boys have learned well. Hybel, Warren, and Schuller have had more input in our Churches in the last 10 years than Paul or Peter. Incidentally, Schuller said it would not disturb him to come back in 200 years and find his descendants Muslims. That will never happen simply because he isn’t coming back.
Fuller Theological Seminary President speaks to Mormons.
In speaking to them in Salt Lake, Richard Moun apologized that evangelicals “have often misrepresented the faith and beliefs of the Latter Day Saints. We evangelicals have sinned against you.” Better think twice before you send your Preacher to a Fuller Church growth meeting. Our preachers are attending in droves to Rick Warren, Jack Hayford and other such gurus who espouse the Fuller attitude. They invite in every hue of sectarianism to these Church growth meetings including Mormons.
TBN’s Paul Crouch
The charismatic Paul Crouch of TBN attempted to conceal the fact that he was gay by paying $425,000.00 to Laverne Ford who eventually exposed him. Crouch also said, “I have come to the conviction that Martin Luther made a mistake, he should have never left the Catholic Church. I am eradicating the word Protestant from my vocabulary. I am not protesting anything. It’s time for Catholics and Non-Catholics to come together as one in the spirit and one in the Lord.” TBN is an apostate network that some of our men appear on for interviews.
Max Lucado, the new darling of the North American Christian Convention, used to be a Church of Christ preacher. In October, he changed the name of Oak Hills Church of Christ. He dropped the “Church of Christ” name in an effort to reach people hesitant to attend a Church of Christ. His Church jumped from 3,300 to 4,500 in 6 months. At a Charismatic Promise Keepers rally he said, “It does not matter about your denomination, it’s all about God.” Oak Hills has a booklet called, “The Purpose of a Teaching Position”. It says,
“A teaching position serves to articulate the convictions of the Oak Hills leadership on a particular doctrine or practice. This paper on the topic of baptism is useful for:
1. Those who have never been baptized. If you want to become a member of Oak Hills and have not been baptized, we ask you to do so.
2. Those who have been baptized, but not by immersion. We have many potential members who were baptized by sprinkling, usually as infants. This paper will help you see why we baptize by immersion. It also explains why we don’t baptize infants. We urge you to read the paper and consider adult baptism. If you choose not to be immersed at this time, we still welcome you as a member. We ask only that you respect this position and not be divisive. Members serving in instructional capacities (such as Bible class teachers, small group leaders, and ministry leaders, elders and staff ministers) need to be in agreement and compliance with the teaching position.
3. Those who have been baptized by immersion. It is our prayer that this study will give you new insights into the beauty, simplicity, and significance of this demonstration of devotion.
Open membership was the hottest debated issue in the Restoration Movement in the last century. Today, the Brethren heading up our Colleges and conventions and camps have no conscience at all of bringing in apostates like Max Lucado, David Reagan and others of that persuasion.
They even bring in Tony Compolo, who even many denominational Churches will not use because of his stating that homosexuals were born that way. He has socialist agendas. He was brought to a heresy trial in 1985 for saying that Christ is in every human being. His wife promotes homosexual marriages. He often uses vulgarisms in the pulpit to shock and shame his listeners. His defense, “what’s worse, is that you’re more upset with the fact that I said [vulgarism] than the fact that 30,000 kids died last night!” This was repeated at one of our schools.
John Hagee of TV fame believes that the spiritual gifts still continues today is getting a larger following. He has raised thousands of dollars to move Jews to the Holy Land, uprooting Palestinian Christians in the process. He believes Christians should have no duty to evangelize Jews since eventually. “All Israel will be saved.” He is a Christian Zionist. He pals around with Benny Hinn and other Charismatic charlatans. He is best known for his pushing of the Jewish agenda, thinking they have a spiritual relationship with God that will bring about their redemption without Christ but by living only in the light of the Torah. He says,
“I’m not out to convert the Jewish people to the Christian faith.” He adds, “In fact, trying to convert Jews is a waste of time. The Jewish person who has his roots in Judaism is not going to convert to Christianity. There is no form of Christian evangelism that has failed so miserably as evangelizing the Jewish people. They (already) have a faith structure. Everyone else, whether Buddhist or Baha’i, needs to believe in Jesus. But not Jews. Jews already have a covenant with God that has never been replaced by Christianity”.
Hagee is renown for taking on anti-Semetics but he is in reality, the true anti-Semetic for he will not evangelize the Jew and give them what they need for eternal salvation.
Rich Warren, of “The Purpose Driven Church”, and “The Purpose Driven Life” fame has changed the Christian Churches and Churches of Christ more than any fad for the past century due to gullibility of our preachers. He has been fellowshipping with John Templeton of the John Templeton Foundation. Templeton awards a million dollars to different persons who further the cause of harmonizing world religions. These have been awarded Agnostics, Pantheists, Hindu’s, Muslims, Buddhists, Jews as well as Billy Graham, Chuck Colson, Bill Bright, and Mother Teresa.
Is Rick after such?
Who knows? Having sold millions of books, he certainly does not need the money. He is now one of the judges for a written essay contest that Templeton is holding. He will serve as judge in the contest with renowned left-wing radicals.
TV Attention Deficit Disorder
Portland (Oregon) Life found that for every hour per day preschoolers watch TV, then chance of developing attention deficit disorders later in life has boosted 10%. This is an alarming fact. You need more than control. Abstinence may be easier than temperance.
Robert Schuller asked Billy Graham this question, “Tell me, what do you think is the future of Christianity?”
Graham’s reply was:
“Well, Christianity and being a true believer you know, I think there’s the Body of Christ. This comes from all the Christian groups around the world. Outside the Christian groups, I think everybody who knows Christ, whether they are conscious of it or not, they’re members of the Body of Christ. I don’t think that we’re going to see a great sweeping revival that will turn the whole word to Christ at any time. I think James answered that. The Apostle James in the first council in Jerusalem, when he said that God’s purposes for this age is to call out a people for His name whether they come from the Muslim world, or the Buddhist world, or the Christian world, or the non-believing world, they are members of the Body of Christ, because they’ve been called by God. They may not even know the name of Jesus, but they know in their hearts that they need something that they don’t have, and I think they turn to the only light they have, and I think that they are saved, and that they are going to be in heaven with us” (Billy Graham, televised interview with Robert Schuller, May 13, 1997).
In response to Graham’s totally unscriptural statement, Schuller explained, “What, what I hear you saying is that it’s possible for Jesus Christ to come into human hearts and soul and life even if they’ve been born in darkness and never had an exposure to the Bible. Is that a correct interpretation of what you are saying?”
Graham answered, “Yes, it is because I believe that. I’ve met people in various parts of the world in tribal situations, that they have never seen a Bible or heard about a Bible, and never heard of Jesus, but they’ve believed in their hearts that there was a God, and they’ve tried to live a life that was quite apart from the surrounding community in which they lived.” This was 1997. But even as far back as 1961 Graham said of infant baptism, “ I have some difficulty in accepting the indiscriminate baptism of infants without a careful regard as to whether the parents have any intention of fulfilling the promise they make. But I do believe that something happens at the baptism of an infant, particularly if the parents are Christians and teach their children Christian truths from childhood. We cannot fully understand the miracles of God, but I believe that a miracle can happen in these children so that they are regenerated, that is, made Christians, through infant baptism. If you want to call that baptismal regeneration, that’s all right with me.” (Lutheran Standard October 10th, 1961)
Graham has for years turned over the names of those who came forward at his rallies to the Churches from which they came. In 1957 Graham said, “Anyone who makes a decision at our meetings is seen later and referred to local clergymen, Protestant, Catholic or Jewish.” (San Francisco news)
Yet many of our top leaders in our own Churches appear with Graham and support his crusades...SHAME!
You need to know that Alfred Kinsey, the hero of the movie, was a pervert, pedophile, wife swapper, bi-sexual and the one who deceived America with his false Kinsey Report. He is the one who made up the lie that 10% of Americans are homosexual. He used for his own survey prison inmates and prostitutes. He made his staff perform lewd sex acts on film. He employed no trained statistician. He himself should have been imprisoned as a pedophile. The American Legislative Exchange Council (2400 State Legislators) recently concluded the Kinsey Report was “illegal and criminal acts masquerading as science.” See proof of all this in a book by Judith Rusmar and another by Susan Brinkmann or contact the eagleforum.org website.
The above news information has been gleaned from The Calvary Contender, The Sword of the Lord, O Timothy, Christian News, The Eagle Forum, and The Way of Life magazines. These groups do a great service in marking those who teach contrary to what the Christian has learned from the Holy Apostles.
