Anything, repeated often enough, will be believed by the masses. And if you’re not careful, thoughtful and understand the Word of God and the enemy’s relentless attack on or distortion of the Truth, you’ll be swallowed up in the easy-believeism or the magnanimity of ‘leaders’ in ‘the church’ today. You just really gotta be paying attention — both to what they’re saying and what they’re meaning.
These are incredible times in which to be alive – as free people, as abundantly rich people, as believers in Jesus… for many, many reasons, this is an incredible time, in the history of the world, to be alive.
As believers, we’re instructed in the Word, to be wise. We’re instructed to watch the signs of the times – that in the last days, perilous times should occur – giving way to all sorts of depravity and distortions or misrepresentations of the Truth. Read Joseph Farrah’s “Give The Glory To God!” and then, Rick Warren’s response: “Give PEACE A Chance” (get your Bible out and read what the Word really says – compared to paraphrases Mr. Warren uses) and then read Mr. Farrah’s very succinct, carefully written response to Rick Warren’s reply: Who Gets the Glory?
This is a great study in the ‘think’ of today and the talk of today in ‘mainstream’ churches… the subtle nuances just might be missed if you’re not careful.
