Liberalism ruins everything it touches. The auto-bailout did not save the industry. No, it ensured that the great American institutions went bankrupt just a few months later. The great liberal trillion-dollar stimulus did absolutely nothing to help the economy. It’s the same when you mix liberalism with religion. Such a marriage does NOT result in enlightenment, but rather the abandonment of faith in order to worship its new God: the Liberal political agenda.
The intolerance of liberalism allows for no competition. Liberals are the first to clamp down on free speech that does not agree with them. The free exercise of religion is tolerated only when liberals control everything that is said. Conservative Christians, Fundamentalists (Christians who believe that the Bible is the Word of God) are feared and despised by the left. Liberals believe in so much that goes against the grain of the church that the two doctrines cannot coexist.
As a consequence, the liberal church must exalt the liberal agenda in place of the Word of God. The murder of babies, the gay agenda, sexual perversions and immorality, every darkness that liberals embrace must take precedence over the Word of God.
So how can the Christian Left accommodate two such opposing doctrines? It doesn’t. The Christian Left and the Emergent church abandons the Word, and denies Jesus in favor of its new God, Liberalism. Any conversation with Liberal worshipers will reveal this. To them, nothing in the Bible is trustworthy, its all fables or the original meaning has been lost in time.
(Fact: the Word of God IS true. It has been preserved by Divine providence. All documents and translation we have today match exactly-word for word what existed in historical texts. For reference I post the book: Evidence That Demands a Verdict, by Josh McDowell.)
Back to the topic. The Emergent church and the Liberals must by necessity discount the Word of God because it conflicts with their earthly man-made doctrine. The Emergents reduce God to a simple force of love, with no concern over such trivial things as sin. They deny Jesus when He says:
John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
Through this verse and others Jesus makes the claim that there is NO salvation apart from Him.
--- The Christian Left/Emergent Church turn must their backs on Jesus in order to be all-inclusive. To them, all paths lead to God. In order to embrace the Liberal agenda, they must utterly reject the Word of God.
I spoke to an emergent about this.
I asked, “Do you believe that God is powerful enough to ensure the Word He revealed stays pure?”
The Emergent explained. “Yes, I believe He is powerful enough. But God chooses not to.”
And he knows this…How? Certainly the left has no divine revelation that this is so.
The question is, “Why would such an uncaring God send His only Son to die for us?”
And if all paths lead to heaven, was the sacrifice of Christ even necessary?
The Emergents have no answer for their heresy. Liberal doctrine doesn’t allow for such deep thought.
The denial of Christ and the rejection of the Bible leaves the Liberal church an empty, morally vacuous place. They don’t even believe in sin. Deny the light of truth, and every evil will creep in with the darkness.
Isaiah 29:13 The Lord says: "These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is made up only of rules taught by men.
The Bottom Line:The Emergent Church and the Christian Left are simply NOT Christian. They are a cult that worships a political agenda. The Jesus they present is False. They embrace the murder of babies, the perversion of homosexuality, and the doctrines of demons. They hold the Bible, sing the old tunes, play at church, but they are wolves in sheep’s clothing. Nothing good will come from this perversion of faith.
Galatians 1:6-9 "I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!
Rev 3: 14-16
"To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God, says this:
I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot.
So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.
Some of you may have noticed that this is a repeat post. I reposted this on top because I had a response from an emergent that I foolishly rejected. Sorry about that. The comment was in defense of the false teachings of the emergent church. It defended that many paths lead to heaven and ignored, John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
Jesus very clearly stated that He is the only way to God the Father. Hinduism, Krishna, islam, Emergent, and good but secular living will not save you or deliver anyone to heaven. Hell is the only destination for those who follow any path apart from Christ.
I regret deleting your post. If you grace me with another comment, I will print it, even though I disagree.
