We are commanded by God to contend earnestly for the faith once delivered to the saints because ungodly men and women will enter the church to bring in a false gospel, a condemned gospel, a gospel that cannot save.
Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. (4) For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. Jude 1:3-4
Sadly, these men abound throughout the visible church. They are bringing in all manner of apostasy. They are proclaiming a corrupted gospel of condemnation that keeps sinners on the broad way that leads to damnation. This assures their own condemnation as God has declared through His Word in the book of Galatians.
I marvel that ye are so soon removed from Him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: (7) Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. (8) But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. (9) As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. (10) For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. (11) But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. (12) For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. Galatians 1:6-12
Throughout the Protestant church there is a capitulation to Islam. There are multiple instances of accommodation with this false religion that condemns its adherents to hell. One particularly egregious surrender to Islam is the response of Evangelicals to a letter written by Muslim clerics to Christian clergy in the United States. Establishment Evangelicals endorsed the response that elevated and made equivalent, God and Allah, Jesus Christ and Mohammed, the Bible and the Koran. Among the signatories were SBC Church Growth advocates, Bill Hybles and Rick Warren , Leith Anderson, president of the National Association of Evangelicals, David Neff, editor-in-chief of Christianity Today, and John Stott, these are a few of the notable evangelicals who signed this blasphemous document. This response was written in 2008. Where was the outcry from evangelical leaders against this treachery?
In December of 2015, hundreds of “Christians” gathered together to sing and welcome Muslims onto Baylor University campus. Granted that Baylor is liberal, allowing Muslims to attend a Christian University has continued to erode the barrier that should exist between faith in Christ and all false man-made religious systems.
Now, recently, the Presbyterian Church USA, in their plenary session held during their General Assembly, offered prayers to Allah! This is worshiping a false god, although coming from this debauched assembly it shouldn’t be too surprising. Additionally, a Christian Missionary and Alliance church hosted a Ramadan dinner observance for Syrian refugees to make them feel at home. Finally, the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, led by Russell Moore, which is SBC, joined a lawsuit in defense of the right of Muslims to build a mosque in a New Jersey township. My beloved brethren, the depth of this apostasy has been clarified for us through these abhorrent admixtures adulterating truth with error. This strikes at the heart of the exclusivity of the gospel, downplays the sovereignty of God Almighty, and demeans the supremacy of Jesus Christ within the visible “Christian” church.
It is the spirit of antichrist that equals Islam with faith in Jesus Christ. This apostasy gives another gospel that is powerless to convict of sin, convince of God’s judgment, and convert the sinner to faith in Jesus Christ. The welding of the religion of Islam with Christianity is an abomination to our Holy God, and all those who promote and participate in this desecration of the truth of the gospel are indeed worthy of God’s eternal curse, anathema.
With Pope Francis declaring that the Bible and Koran are the same as are Jehovah, Allah, and Jesus Christ, and then recently embracing and kissing the Grand Inman of the al-Azhar Mosque in Cairo, Egypt, we see the end times apostate whore rearing its ugly head in the unification of all branches of false religion. Now that the neo-evangelical church has joined up with this antichrist spirit we can see the tsunami advance of end time religion upon the face of this earth. Beloved brothers and sisters, please come out from among them, please do not be partakers of their judgment, and please contend earnestly for the faith once delivered to the saints of Almighty God our Father and His Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: (2) With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. (3) So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. (4) And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: (5) And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. (6) And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. Revelation 17:1-6
And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. (3) For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. (4) And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. (5) For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. (6) Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. (7) How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. (8) Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. Revelation 18:2-8
Lord Jesus Christ as Your beloved bride may we stay pure by abstaining from the wicked indoctrination of the world that seeks to muddy Your truth, Your pure gospel, with the filthy lies of the enemy that masquerade as acceptable wisdom. May we hold fast the truth of the gospel proclaimed in Your Word the Bible, the Holy, inspired, inerrant, infallible preserved Word given to us by Your loving kindness. May You work so mightily in our hearts and minds by Your Holy Spirit. Amen!
