False Teachers (1) part I

"Success-N-Life"




I'm going to start a series on "False Teachers" begining with this one. Just like the ongoing series "Idolatry: Marian Prayers". Although I have yet to post #2.

Future editions will (hopefully) be on the more serious side and primarily dealing with biblical refutation. But I'll start the "False Teachers" series with some humor.

Some very good humor.

In Jude Ch.1, we read:

Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. (emphasis mine)

Now, I am not sure that Robert Tilton would qualify as this type of false teacher although he most definitely is one. In Jude, notice the "For certain people have crept in unnoticed..." portion of this passage. If Robert Tilton "crept in unnoticed" I would have to seriously wonder if that congregation was a part of Christ's body. No, I don't have to wonder.

Let me illustrate:

Robert Tilton

And:

Tilton letter

In part II, I will offer up biblical refutation of this false teacher who, along with many others apparently, "...long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God..."

I can't find Terry Tate. Please tell me how to find the Terry Tate video on your site. I haven't watched it yet today. Thank you!

I like your site, by the way. I'm a reformed law student, and visit regularly. Sometime when I have time to do something besides get humor fixes from your blog, I'll write something meaningful.

M.A.B.

I was having trouble with it but its back now.

I'm glad you enjoy the site and as you can see from the last entry, I'll be adding more light-hearted posts.

Come again, and may God bless your studies.

By the way, thunderscot, (you wouldn't happen to be a "son of thunder" would you?) as God's providence would have it, I have been searching for a good starter pipe and tobacco. This very week in fact. I enjoy cigars but I have caved under the pressure to snobby Pipe purists.

Suggestions?

Thanks for Terry Tate. Whew, I was getting worried.

very good site - i have a dvd on tilton - he isn't particularly dangerous as he is more of a comedian - it's those whose theology is very sound and biblically accurate in many places that we need to look out for.

Perry Stone and similar arminian dispensationalists spring to mind.

Good point. I would put the thumb on Doug Wilson, Steve Schlissel and the gang even moreso.
