And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. - Ephesians 4:11-14 (ESV)
As we enter deeper and deeper into the end times we see the apostate church, built on its purpose driven mega church foundation and expanded by the all encompassing NAR theologies slowly taking over mainstream churchianity. I do not say Christianity because the bride of Christ always remains loyal to the bridegroom. The true bride however is continually marginalized by the growing apostate church that increasingly demands the spotlight without any of the biblical commitment. One result of this phenomenon is the growth of discernment ministries within the remnant that remain committed to exposing the false church system that is devouring millions of people. As one would expect, the seeker friendly industrial complex fights back to protect the racket they have set up. From the untold riches of a Hillsong or Bethel to the individual huckster making a living by falsely prophesying or healing. They exist to prop each other up and lend credibility to one another. One of the popular defenses employed is to have people in the industry write about unity and how Christians should never be attacking one another. This clumsy attempt to sound reasonable is just a smoke screen however to avoid answering for their false theology. One such attempt is linked above. Let us reason once more together.
"Recently I have witnessed a growing trend of Christians who are attacking and criticizing other Christians. Their verbal attacks are cannibalistic. I'm sure these kinds of things happened long before social media ever existed, but now it seems to be getting worse. A well-known ministry said one thing that is shared and reshared around pages where their followers start petty squabbles. The next week, it will be another victim. It becomes hot gossip, and people from all walks of life are weighing in on the latest story. Sadly it's like playing telephone, these things get blown way out of proportion. The ministries get attacked. The unbelievers are reminded as to why they don't want to go into churches, and the Christians participating think they have become some kind of church vigilante." - Anna Aquino
What absolute nonsense. One of the more transparent attacks they use is the notion that the unsaved do not want to go to church because they see people correcting what is wrong. That is garbage. There have been unending polls of the "unchurched" and their number one compliant is not the correction of what is wrong but the refusal to do so. This is what is known as hypocrisy and it is the number one reason why people do not go to church. They see the NAR influenced church worship one political party and extend an accusatory finger at anyone outside that cabal as the reason for not only societal ills but all future judgment as well. While the unsaved do not understand the things of God they understand the flesh and its hypocrisy all to well. Discernment and demanding the truth is not hot gossip as Aquino tries to marginalize it here. A perfect example was all of the reporting on the problems with Jerry Falwell Jr. who ran Liberty University and was a key political figure within the apostate church. After years of denial and bogus lawsuits he has now admitted he has engaged in a sexual relationship with a Miami pool boy and his wife for years. The truth matters.
"The news media is even beginning to pick up these stories. This is ridiculous. I have come to expect this kind of behavior from the unbeliever but from the churched? Really? Medically, when one body part attacks another body part the whole body becomes out of order and can't function. This disunity, the attacks and the brutality of the situation are causing the church to become fragmented." - Anna Aquino
Yes Anna, really. The so called "churched" are a by product of the purpose driven heresies and the majority are unsaved to begin with but the larger problem here is this notion that Christians should just check their collective brains at the door. Unity with heretics is not called for anywhere in the bible. The key verses speak to true unity. It is a unity of faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God. That means it is a unity with His word. The purpose of which ironically is to no longer be fooled by people like you. The problem is that you are not part of the body of Christ. You are a virus or a parasite trying to make a living off of it. Peddling the word of God for profit. Discernment is the immune system, fighting you off.
