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.
