The "Enlightenment" ideas of "rights", "liberty" and "equality" itself needs to die: A call to the Church to rise up and return to Biblical, God-centred thinking

The modern Church in the west, that is, 21st century Christendom in the west, is extremely weak and useless to God. It is not that Christendom does not exist in the west, it does, but it is weak. The existence of some strong Christians in the west is exactly what Christendom in the west it. It exists but just not making the impact it should, by turning the world upside down as the early Church did as recorded in the book of Acts:


Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews: And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures, 

Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ. And some of them believed, and consorted with Paul and Silas; and of the devout Greeks a great multitude, and of the chief women not a few. But the Jews which believed not, moved with e…

The Heresy of Faith as Mere Belief: True Faith is Obedience to God that manifest in Action, not Belief

The "protest"-ant reformation not only bought about many heresies, but legitimised heresy, because of the idea that every person has authority to interpret the Scripture as he sees fit, and not as inspired by the Holy Spirit. For anyone can say that his interpretation is inspired by the Spirit. Even cults say that they are inspired by the Spirit! 

While some heresies are more obvious, such as the doctrines that God is not Triune, that Jesus did not become man, Jesus is not God, or that the God of the Old and New Testament are two different Gods, other heresies are far more subtle. Some of these far more subtle heresies are so generally accepted and have infiltrated into much of the Church that hardly anyone thinks of them as heresy. 

One such heresy is that false doctrine that faith by which Salvation comes mean that one only needs to "just believe". All one needs to do is to believe in and affirm the doctrines of Salvation to be saved. A person need not take any per…

True Interpretation of Scripture Comes Only from God-ordained Teachers and Church Authorities

Since the "Protest"-ant Reformation, which was really nothing more than a power grab of Church property, launched under the false guise of fighting heresy, with the destruction of the Church authority to determine what is right or wrong teaching, a whole host of heresies sprang forth which became acceptable and out in the open. 

While heresies had always existed since the time of the Early Church, such heresies were severely dealt with, and rightfully so. Post-Reformation, heresies were not only sprang forth, but were legitimised. This was because the mother of all heresies, that everyone can interpret the Scripture in accordance to his own personal interpretation, was not just accepted, but instituted in what now became of the Church. It was instituted as a result of the destruction of Church authority to determine what is right or wrong teaching. So now, instead of the Church determining what is right or wrong teaching, as per Scripture (James 3:1; Ephesians 4:11-15), each …

The Wickedness of Heretics and their Heresies

At the essence of heresy is rebellion, leading to confusion, and not the other way round in being confusion in essence, leading to rebellion owing to ignorance. Rebellion is always at the heart of all heresy. Heretics believe in their heresy because of their rebellion against God. Such rebellion is not mere rebellion, but arrogant rebellion which not only loves sin, but loves to challenge the authority of God, in not only who He is, but also His Word, and ultimately, His Lordship. For that is what rebellion ultimately seeks to oppose, and to usurp the Lordship of God over one's life so that one can exercise one's own lordship over one's life.

Heresies are of two kinds: 

1. Theological heresy  - that which denies or distorts any aspect of the Nature of God.
2. Moral heresy - that which denies, opposes, compromises on, or qualifies any Commandment of Jesus Christ in any way, shape or form.

A person may affirm all the true doctrines of the Trinity and Salvation, including the Pe…

Heresy: The Greatest Sin of Rebellion

Heresy is often thought to be simply any doctrine that deviates from the true doctrines about Jesus. While doctrines that deviate from the true doctrine about Jesus is certainly heretical, that is only an example of heresy. Such an understanding of heresy misunderstands the real essence and the nature of heresy itself. 

Heresy is in essence, rebellion against God. It is the exercise of illegitimate authority against God through the perversion of doctrine. For in such doctrine is borne out of rebellion against God itself, a hatred of God, in particular, a love for that which is carnal. Jude 1:8-19 sums up the nature of heretics: 

Likewise also these dreamers defile the flesh, reject authority, and speak evil of dignitaries. Yet Michael the archangel, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but said, “The Lord rebuke you!” But these speak evil of whatever they do not know; and whatever they know natura…
