John MacArthur(PBUH) in Apostasy: Emerges teaching Missional-minded Christianity! backed up by Christian Research Network’s Backbone!!February 17, 2020
“Great preacher Charles Spurgeon described “soul-winning [as] the chief business . . . of every true believer.” Step into soul-winning boot camp today with John MacArthur on “Grace to You,” as he studies the lifesaving mission God calls you to.”
You hear that? Clearly soul-winning is a code-word for Easy-Believism and Easy-Believism is code-word for Arminianism—which is free-will worshipping semi-Pelagian heresy—the road to Rome! We’ve also discernmentalized that lifesaving mission is code-word for Missional-minded Christianity and this is what those Emerging/Emergent apostates teach:
“Missional Christian faith asserts that Jesus did not come to make some people saved and others condemned. Jesus did not come to help some people be right while leaving everyone else to be wrong. Jesus did not come to create another exclusive religion (based on beliefs).”
– Brian McLaren, A Generous Orthodoxy, p.120
The emphasis on being “missional” is often made in such a way so as to insinuate that all they are really doing is removing the Gospel message from cultural constraints. (Source)
The Missional deception is a change of emphasis in a church from outward focused evangelism with inward focused spiritual growth to inward focused “evangelism lite” with little or no emphasis on the spiritual growth of the members. The Church was viewed by our pastor and his people as their “church plant” in our community from which they would be a missional focused church ministering to the seekers who came to see what all the fuss was about. What is “Missional”? Is it the same thing as having a missionary focus like that church I used to belong to before its takeover by the Innovation Cult? No, it is different. The first way it is different is that it sees itself as “incarnational.” What does this mean? Instead of the focus being on the church and what goes on inside as far as worship, Bible Study, fellowship, and preaching, the emphasis is on being involved in the community. (Source)
From all this we can conclude that JMac (PBUH) has emerged into a Missional church mindset—condemned by his own words:
“The movement’s main trendsetters relentlessly pressure pastors to contextualize their ministry and message so that the church can stay in step with these postmodern times. Missional strategies that truncate the gospel or overshadow it with gimmickry and entertainment are not going to win the culture in this or any other age (Rom 10). In fact, the quest for the world’s approval is nothing less than spiritual harlotry.”
Update- our keen researchmentalists have pointed out this previous post of ours proving this post further as we’ve already apprised:
Jesus had 12 men for Apostles (no woman) and the Holy Spirit used men only to write the New Testament (no women). Yes a women was the first to proclaim the risen Lord because women are not excluded from evangelism. Please refer to the Pauline letters about women teachers and leaders. People are leaving the Church because there is no power displayed due to the watering down and the compromise of the Gospel! Just because a woman is not allowed to teach (except to other woman and children) does not make them inferior in any way, they are the equal to men in the Lord. The lord has set a template for the running and execution of His will within His church, not your Church nor my Church but His Church!
Using his discernmentalist skills Paul Proctor is quoted as saying “The reports are everywhere now about the declining numbers of church members and baptisms – especially among Southern Baptists…Everyone is trying to figure out what’s wrong.” Having insight into God’s will Proctor notes “This might come as a shock to many, but I would suggest that the answer here might just be nothing is wrong – that those declining numbers that are troubling the pulpits of American churches right now may well be God’s will being carried out by His own being called out of a growing apostasy flourishing within them.”
Of course it could be that the numbers have been over exaggerated by attendees who never actually go to church, or members defecting to other denominations, or house churches….but we digress…
Paul further states “If God is in control, as so many of today’s church members are fond of saying – then He must also be in control of the declining numbers.” However, we do not want to blame God for Paul Proctor presumptuous claims…we at the ODMafia however do want to claim him as an expert discernmentalist
…if he can read the mind of God…we want him on our side.
Name Withheld has openly assaulted Discernmentalists as he has stated: “Instead of fretting over a non-issue how about being concerned with the wrath of God.” Name Withheld should know better than that as a fellow Discernmentalist—he should already know that in order to show God’s wrath and expose our Doctrine to all we must fret over every little thing. Clearly Satan is hiding around the corner and in every minuscule little thing that we personally disapprove of. We must make an issue out of every “non-issue” and make non-essentials essential as that’s the very heart of the Gospel of Discernmentalism.
And making mountains out of molehills is our specialty as Deborah of Discerning The World (DTW) has passed this spiritual gift of worldly attack and circular arguments on to us which we have far since surpassed her in our “special” gifted-ness and
Many well-known and greatly esteemed preachers and teachers have absolutely no qualms whatsoever about their association with some of the weirdest, worst and most dangerous false prophets in these last days’ of exponential apostasy. Here are a few well-documented examples.
STEPHAN JOUBERT: In cahoots with Leonard Sweet, Rob Bell, Ron Martoia, Johan Geyser, Trevor Hudson, Nelus Niemandt, Eugene Peterson and Jan van der Watt, to name but a few.
JOHAN GEYSER: In cahoots with Stephan Joubert, Thomas Keating, Leonard Sweet, Rob Bell, Ron Martoia, Trevor Hudson, Thomas Merton and other false teachers in the mystically engineered Emergent Church, to name but a few.
TREVOR HUDSON: In cahoots with Stephan Joubert, Johan Geyser, Theo Geyser (who manages to see Jesus in a sangoma/witch doctor without the help of his glasses), Thomas Keating (who in turn is in cahoots with the integral guru, Ken Wilber), Ron Matroia and Rob Bell, to name but a few.
Obviously Name Withheld is lacking a steady diet of good Truth
Warrior Worrier Discernment ministries like ours and Discerning The World (DTW)‘s. One word of warning to Name Withheld: “hell is real; hell is hot”—so either get in line; take a stand and get right with us first or else.
Once again setting our high standard over everyone so get over it,
Update: Name Withheld continues his attack—defends Spurgeon against Deborah and our CLEAR Teachings.
Angles & He-Mans is a bestselling mystery-thriller novel written by Slice of Laodicea and published by Truth Books in 2000 is now a FEATURE LENGTH MOVIE. It revolves around the quest of fictional athletic he-man Harvard University angle-ologist Robert “Truthster” Langdon to unravel the mysteries of a secret society called the Emerginati and to prevent a plot from annihilating Apprising City using destructive anti-truth. The book utilizes the historical fiction similar to the research techniques of many online discernmentalists.
It is rumoured to have head of Slice of Laodicea staffer on board for a cameo appearance …apparently revealling her short curly locks and bare arms in this provocative shot.
The novel introduces the character Robert “Truthster”Langdon, who is also the protagonist of Brown’s subsequent 2003 novel, The Da Emergent Code. It also shares many stylistic elements with its sequel, such as put downs, condescension, and judgmentalism.
Evaluating Christianity (EC) states
“I think it’s reasonable to hold someone who is representing himself to the world as an expert to the standards one would expect from such experts. Such standards include, at minimum, that if one reads someone else’s research and draws conclusions not present in the original article, you should (1) contact the original author to get his views; (2) represent that author’s views of your conclusions fairly in making your own argument; and (3) submit your argument to a scientific journal for review by other professional academic peers within the respective scientific community.”
Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!
First, we hope that EC means everyone but ODMafia….we get our information by osmosis…books are too time consuming…and research…all that thinking and evaluating. We prefer the Abomination Nation approach of just getting ” bare bones facts”….without the thinking.
Second, if you expect integrity from ODMs, we are above that, or beneath it…or whichever…we’re not sure.
Third, we are in the business of distorting the views of others, not detailing them with accuracy and honesty. We’re not sure who this is aimed at…but we’re sure getting darn steamed!!!! We’re about the truth…the absolute truth….what does integrity have to do with proper research when it is our duty (no wait ministry) to safeguard truth which is weak, feeble and in need of our protection?
A word to Evaluating Christianity blog….if you need to evaluate Christianity…look no further than the absolute beacon of truthiness –THE ODMAFIA. We believe haughtiness, pride and arrogance is our first line of defense against so called investigators and thinkers. We are the special ops of truth, the line backers if you will to safe-guard the gospel, the truth and all things absolute.
Remember….there is no side but ours and our opinion…which is always decidedly the truth…which of course may look relative to you (when we change our minds due to something inconvenient – like the truth)…but never to us…because we like the word ‘absolute.’ Not sure if that makes sense, but it does to us because thinking comes easy to ODMafia…but we feel sorry for the rest of you who have to wade through this sturdy well thought out defence we call apologetics….especially if you can’t think as fast and as sharp as we can.
