How Unbelieving “Non-Judging” False Christians Enable Evil and Oppress Victims

Gal 1:8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.

Rom 6:1 What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound?

Recently I watched a movie that looked like it would be good, but before long it was apparent that it was propaganda for “tolerance” of well, just about anything. Three young high school girls ended up going to a bar (one was a professing Christian) where they encountered a bevy of “drag queens” who befriended them and schooled them in “wisdom.”

I finished watching the movie so I could post a critique of it and expose its obvious agenda for promoting wickedness in a deceitful manner.

Well, sure enough there were a few and one in particular who were all sorts of angry with me for daring to say that this movie was evil. This gal professes to be a Christian, and I want to show you how “Christians” like her actually energize abusers and other wicked people hiding in our churches and oppress the targets of these servants of the devil. For all her “pious” sounding talk, a little serious thinking will help us realize that this is no friend, and no Christian.

Here are two paragraphs she wrote:

Jesus had no judgement of anyone, so why to you profess this movie to be evil? I beg to disagree with you wholeheartedly. He taught us to be accepting toward and loving of all, no matter what and if you cannot embrace that then I fully believe you have been lead astray. The Bible can be interpreted in a million ways by millions of different people. There are those among us who still take it literally, so literally they fail to see the message…His commandment to love one another.

We are ALL sinners Jeff. even you. Don’t ever say that a church is a false church if it accepts sin and those who sin. If that is what you believe then your church is also false because there are sinners in your congregation. Our salvation is based on the fact that Christ died for us and our sins, no matter what we have done or who we are. Aren’t you preaching THAT good news instead of berating those who come to have their sins washed away? Sorry, but I don’t think Jesus would be so judgmental.

Now, I hardly need to comment on these ridiculous statements. But I will because like this false Christian, people don’t think anymore. They gobble up this nonsense and end up believing the lies.

Let me just paraphrase what she is saying:

  • Christ paid for our sins but He doesn’t change us. We remain sinners and we keep on practicing sin, but no matter….
  • Jesus does not pass judgment on anyone and He forbids us to do so. In fact, we are not to call anything evil.
  • We are to accept and love everyone and anyone “no matter what” they are or do
  • The Bible is meaningless because everyone can interpret it however they want. The only WRONG way to interpret it is literally.

I could cite so many Scriptures that so obviously expose these things as lies. The little book of 1 John for instance. What does this woman think that John meant when he said, for instance:

1Jn 2:3-4 And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments. (4) Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him,

1Jn 2:29 If you know that he is righteous, you may be sure that everyone who practices righteousness has been born of him.

And what of this? Jesus didn’t judge anyone? Well-

Joh 2:14-16 In the temple he found those who were selling oxen and sheep and pigeons, and the money-changers sitting there. (15) And making a whip of cords, he drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and oxen. And he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables. (16) And he told those who sold the pigeons, “Take these things away; do not make my Father’s house a house of trade.”

Or what of this –

1Co 5:1-2 It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that is not tolerated even among pagans, for a man has his father’s wife. (2) And you are arrogant! Ought you not rather to mourn? Let him who has done this be removed from among you.

I have a theory about these kinds of so-called “Christians.” They say they believe the Bible, but when they throw in the “everyone can interpret it differently” line, they are demonstrating that not only do they not believe God’s Word, they don’t even read it. They have certain catch phrases that they blather about over and over, but they dismiss the entirety of Scripture and they are willfully ignorant of it. They actually despise Christ and trample His blood underfoot –

Heb 10:26-29 For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, (27) but a fearful expectation of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries. (28) Anyone who has set aside the law of Moses dies without mercy on the evidence of two or three witnesses. (29) How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has trampled underfoot the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of grace?

I told this woman that she is not a Christian if she believes what she is saying. And I told her that her church is a false, counterfeit church and her gospel is a false gospel. And I told her that unless she repents, then on the Day when Christ comes to judge the world in righteousness, she is going to find out that He never knew her.

Do not be duped by the “love and mercy” sounding words of these kinds of people. They will receive everyone who says they are a Christian and really even everyone who doesn’t even make such a claim. Anything goes. Including your abuser’s evil against you. And you? Well, these broad-minded folks will condemn you because you hunger and thirst for justice, and in their theological paradigm, that is the chief sin of all.

 

So Just How do we “Test the Spirits?”

Gal 1:8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.

2Co 11:3-4 But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ. (4) For if someone comes and proclaims another Jesus than the one we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it readily enough….2Co 11:14 And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

1John 4:1-2 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. (2) By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God,

We are seeing claims of late that Jesus Christ has appeared as a so-called “light man.” The claim made is that since the Bible says God is light and Christ is the Light of the world and so on, then if someone reports that “the light man” appeared to them and said he was Jesus bringing them salvation, we must at minimum believe that such a claim is possibly valid. Even if it is made by a woman who claims to have been molested as a child by Billy Graham, Richard Nixon, and other notables who were all part of a secret conglomeration conspiracy organization consisting of the CIA, the Masons, the Roman Catholic Church, and others. The woman insists that at the age of six she was held in a cage with other children in subterranean levels of an army base and these children told her that they used to get visited by “the light man”.  When asked during an interview what does that mean, the woman said,  “they (the other children) described him and I said to them, “oh yeah, I know him.  That’s Jesus Christ.’”

And now we are being told that if we don’t believe these reports then we are denying the ways that Christ works today, that we are refusing to help abuse victims, and worse.  But this is not Christ. Nope. It is not, and I will tell you why.

Evil Recognizes Evil

Gal 5:19-21 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, (20) idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, , dissensions, divisions, (21) envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

I received a letter once from a person who I had past dealings with. They were not positive experiences. The person was divisive, accusatory and hyper-critical. But this time the letter I received claimed to be a help to me. In it, the person said that they had observed certain ongoing behaviors of another person I dealt with and warned me that those behaviors evidenced a plot to do me harm. Not physical harm, but harm to my ministry. The person warned me that I was being targeted by a narcissist.

Now, what complicated this situation and what caused me to disregard the warning is that the person giving the warning had a track record of being pretty evil themselves. So I didn’t believe the warning. But guess what? The warning was right on target as I had to learn later the hard way.

As I have thought about that dynamic and wondered what in the world was going on there, this thought occurred to me. Could it be that evil recognizes evil? If you look at the Scripture quoted above, notice how many of them (in bold) describe trouble caused by jealousy and envy. I think that the person who sent me this warning was motivated not by any concern for me, but by their own jealousy. They saw one of their own kind working for position and self-glory and recognized what was going on. How? Because I believe that evil is able to see itself. To recognize itself operating in another evil person.

Many of the dissensions and fights in local churches are just this. Not the righteous vs the unrighteous, but the wicked vs the wicked. Each party vying for power and jealous of the other because they see their own power lust in the other.

A kind of confirmation of this theory that evil recognizes evil comes from my experience as a pastor. More than once we have had a party of wicked people banded together in an effort to “take over” the church. They walk into a church meeting all in a group, sit in a group, waiting for a moment to announce their pre-decided slate of demands. But what happens to this party of evil once the battle is over? Let’s say they failed in their hostile takeover attempt. What happens to them?

Well, sometimes they go off and start another “church.” But even then those efforts most frequently end with the same outcome. They all go their separate ways. Why? Because they hate each other. They serve themselves. Their dark alliance was only temporary. They will never work together over the long haul because they are envious of one another. They see the power lust in those of their own ilk and the jealousy rages. Dissensions. Divisions. Devourings.

Herein is a sober warning to those who would be wise. Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin would never have worked together in harmony after the War even if the first two had survived it. They go their own way. And so it is with these counterfeits in churches. They spread out like a black plague. This one goes to that church, that one goes to still another, and the most industrious of them starts his own house “church.”

Do you begin to see why we all MUST proceed with caution when that nice, saintly, most holy appearing fellow and his family show up at our church one Sunday? Oh, your church is the best they have ever been in. And the sermon? Absolutely fantastic and biblical. Not at all like the church they have come from where they were treated so badly you know.

Yeah, right. We’ve heard that before. The truth is that evil saw evil, was intensely jealous of its practitioners, and struck out on its own to sow more seed of the enemy somewhere else.
