DANGER! False Christians poisoning the gospel through heresy

poison (false doctrine)1

2 Peter 2:1
But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, and will bring swift destruction on themselves.

There are myriads of false Christians especially in the online journaling world who are bringing in destructive heresies. Introducing the doctrine of keeping unbelievers unaware of their sins and not telling them about God’s wrath as found in Colossians 3:5-6 “5 Therefore, put to death what belongs to your worldly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desire, and greed, which is idolatry. 6 Because of these, God’s wrath comes on the disobedient.”

We must preach the entire counsel of God which is love and judgment. Right before His seconding coming He will unleash His wrath on mankind (the 7 year Tribulation). I will show this tragedy with an illustration if you withhold the whole truth about their sin.

One Saturday morning at 7:00 am, a person wakes up to a beautiful day feeling great and starts to get ready for a doctor’s appointment to get the results of a medical testing conducted few weeks ago. He gets into his car, puts on the radio listening to his favorite music as he sings along. The day couldn’t get any better. He arrives at the hospital, checks in and sits down as he patiently waits for his name to be called all the while thinking how he is going to spend the rest of his wonderful day after his appointment. His name gets called, leaping out of his seat with a big smile goes in to see the doctor.

When he sees the doctor with a weird look on his face his stomach starts to turn having a funny sensation. Instead of telling him how his deadly illness will literally number his earthly existence unless the patient takes the recommended treatments, the doctor seeing that his patient is young and happy didn’t want to ruin his life with the devastating diagnosis and holds himself from disclosing how sick his patient really is. The young man leaves the hospital thinking he has a long and happy life ahead of him not knowing that his dark days of suffering looms in his immediate future without any hope. If a person doesn’t know that he is sick, he will never seek treatment.

This is what false Christians are teaching in their social media venue for true Christians to do and end up letting sinners continue to live and let live without repenting and forsaking their sinful lifestyle by just telling them Jesus loves them, failing to explain the reason why Jesus loves them as seen in Jude 1:4 “For certain individuals whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord.”

Jesus died on the cross to cleanse us from our sins through faith in Him by putting our trust in Him and forsaking our sinful nature. We have to always couple together when preaching the good news about Jesus’ love and also being a righteous judge who has to punish sin if the sinner doesn’t believe in Jesus as Lord and savior. A true Christian shows his trust in Jesus after conversion by forsaking his sinful lifestyle which is a byproduct of genuine saving faith in Christ.

We as Christians must expose this demonic doctrine which is a sugarcoated gospel keeping people from repenting of their sins hence letting them live on with their false conversion. A great example is a liberal Christian who thinks it’s OK to be a practicing homosexual and still be a Christian ( which by the way is an oxymoron). I leave you with this warning from scripture:

2 John 1:9-10
9 Anyone who does not remain in Christ’s teaching but goes beyond it, does not have God. The one who remains in that teaching, this one has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your home, and don’t say, “Welcome,” to him;

The last part in verse 10 just means we are to distance ourselves and not support or participate with a false teacher.

  1. Paul and the other apostles were led by the Holy Spirit to pen the Scriptures so that future believers may live by it. Some people don’t even dare pick up the Bible. How will one ever know what’s in it if no one ever dares to tell them? You can give someone a Bible, but it doesn’t mean they’ll take the iniatiative to actually pick it up and read it.

    When you become a follower of Christ, you automatically become his ambassador. God will hold the believer into account if they bothered to tell their neighbor about Him.

    James 5:20 clearly states, “remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of their way will save them from death and cover over a multitude of sins.”

    People even in the most loving, and bearing the best of intentions get misconstrued all the time when we reiterate biblical truth even when we have no intent to condemn, but actually to “inform”. We are the one who are judged and labeled as “bigots”. We are no different than the OT Prophets who weren’t well received either by the people who needed to hear them…

    1 Corinthians 2:14
    But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
    Spiritual truths can only be revealed by the Holy Spirit.

    People who had a lifechanging encounter with the Lord have this natural inclination to shout to the rooftops about Salvation. You can’t contain what God has done in your life. Who would?

    People in cults who are not genuinely indwelt by the Holy Spirit but have to go preach to people (like JW’s and LDS) do it out of compulsion with the hopes to attain Salvation. They have to do it to get something out of it. The Spiritual truths these groups claim to have are convoluted since they cannot truly discern truth apart from the Holy Spirit, and therefore should not be going around knocking on doors.

    That is why, the Bible tells us in Luke 12:48, “From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.”

    The desire to tell people the truth is not coming from the natural man since natural man has the propensity of selfishness, not selflessness. This very desire is proof of the Holy Spirit’s work.

  4. And we as Post Jesus era believers are guaranteed the Holy Spirit’s indwelling (Post ascension as you said) at the very moment we open the door to Christ’s knock on our heart.

    My last one here. I don’t want to make Spaniard’s post into a Chat room. Lol

    Revelation 12:11
    And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
    Shouting from the rooftops and overcoming by their testimony is declaring to the devil and the whole world how good God is.

  6. @Caeli It is the goodness of God thst leads to repentance. We were called to be witnesses. A witness is onligated to tell onlybwhat he/she sees and hears.

    True, but you also need to tell people of the wretched life God delivered you from and what part in Scripture they should know pertaining to that by backing it up with scriptures.

    You are a witness when you used to live in a certain lifestyle, be it gay, druggie, promiscuity, witchcraft etc, and since God opened your eyes, it is now your obligation to snatch others from the fire as Jude 1:23 states.

    Please honor my request to disengage. Thanks. Nice exchange though 🙂
