Msg #1817 Tell Them, Tell Them, and Tell Them

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

 

In a military briefing I was taught to tell what I was going to tell them, then tell them, then tell them what I told them. The Apostle John adds to that standard in that he tells us what he is going to tells us, then he tells us, and tells us, and tells us, then he tells us what he told us (1John 1,2-3-4,5). I love his clarity when he exhorts us to “try the spirits whether they are of God,” and that “Every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is the spirit of antichrist” (1John 4:1,3). The cults, Russel's JWs, Smith's LDSs, White's SDAs, are immediately classed as antichrists under this rule. But what of Roman Catholics and their Protestant children? These confess and defend the Deity of Christ; they confess that “Jesus is come in the flesh” (vr.2). Are they still considered “the spirit of error?” (vr.6). When “trying the spirits,” although a written creed may declare Christ's deity, the spirit of their error makes them antichrist. Their spirit teaches Mariology, or baptismal regeneration, or black cloaked priests with backward collars, or election of souls. Their emphasis is not the propitiation of a substitutionary death, burial, and resurrection of God's Only Begotten Son. They are deceivers with another gospel, let them be accursed, they are antichrist. There are many “good people” tangled in their web of deceit. Like a good parent, the Apostle John warns his little children “Be careful who your friends are.” There is a wide gate and broad path for the deceivers and their following. Enter ye in at the straight gate and warn your friends. It is more than belief in God, keep the Lordship of Christ your main thing.
