The good people over at CRN have done it again! Just when I thought they had exhausted their sizable reach, they turn up yet another article about Brian McLaren (heretic). How do they do it? Their staff must consist of literally tens of people searching through news journals, newspapers and the internet to find stories that mean something to me. Well done CRN!
Now on to the article. If you take the time to read it, and I mean with the discernmentalist eye, you will find heretical remarks all through Brian McLaren’s (heretic) comments. First he says that Jesus would use a Blackberry? Are you kidding me? Jesus is God and God doesn’t need a puny electronic device to remember what he is going to do. So Brian McLaren (heretic) is mocking our Lord. Also, he says that Jesus would be concerned with the planet and homeless people. As John MacArthur points out,
“That salt and light are not moral influence, but gospel witness and the power of holy living. They always say well, we have to be salt and light, we have to be salt and light, have to be salt and light. Well, the imagery of Jesus in the sermon on the mount with regard to salt and light is the image of the shining forth of truth. That’s the light. And the preservative of godly living. We are light when we proclaim the light, and manifest our good works. That’s what He says. And glorify our Father who is in heaven. And we are salt when we are a preservative, because of the virtue and the godliness of our lives.”
In another place John MacArthur states it this way;
“He (Jesus) did not seek social change.”
To quote C. H. Spurgeon Himself;
“Well, it is the tendency of the times to decry preaching, but it is “the foolishness of preaching” which is to change the world.”
In Other words Jesus didn’t come to change the world or to worry about the homeless (paraphrase is mine). So how can Brian McLaren (heretic) sit there and tell us to take care of the homeless. Not only that, but he contradicts his whole emerging thought process by saying he wouldn’t give someone money, just talk to him and love him. I thought you cared for the homeless Brian!
I will wrap this up with my views. It is up to Ken Silva to keep this heretic’s schedule in the forefront of our minds. I personally don’t want to go to a bookstore and run into him. That would make me feel dirty. And all you who know the TRUTH know that Brian McLaren (heretic) is a heretic and so he is not allowed to say anything about Jesus. As CRN rightly points out, “he probably doesn’t even know the Lord.” And how could you when you are more worried about the planet, the homeless, poverty, world peace and religious understanding, then pointing out other people’s sins? This is a no-brainer people!
I am glad God didn’t make me like them!
