New Age Christianities is the same as counterfeit christianity with counterfeit love. Satan has crept in to subvert.


Modern Fake Churches
"People started to hear about love, unity and tolerance. We must be known for what we agree on, not what we disagree on. Everything and everyone must be accepted. Aberrations must be accepted. Sin must be accepted. People loved having their ears tickled. They would be encouraged to "feel good" and have their self-esteem built up. Sound doctrine was being set aside.

The saving of souls was being set aside for the entertainment factor and social justice causes. It seemed that many in the church no longer cared that so many were on their way to hell! What an offensive, intolerant thought. But clearly sound doctrine will separate and divide so we must tread lightly in that area."

What Happened to My Church?

How do you explain the Old testament God then? Some of the crazy laws God demanded of his people?

When will you fundies begin to understand the history of the church.... This is how it goes, a group of believers within the church(the church that believes they have all the true there is to know) see what God is saying in their present day, they either leave or are ex communicated from the church as hereitics, the church they leave becomes dead, the church that was open to what God said in their day organize around what they believe God said and become the church they left behind, this cycle keeps repeating itself. You Mr Graham hold onto beliefs that are as old as the hills that have been proven time after time that they are nothing other than a form of godliness(that is what beliefs are) that deny the power.

Consider it a history of growing perceptions (far more than one as there is NO perception consistent through the OT) within one ethnic group concerning the nature of God, culminating in the revelation of Jesus and His "New Covenant."

I don't explain the Old Testament God, and the Scriptures declare that they have turned the temple into a den of thieves, nothing lawful about it!

The Old Testament God was the perception of what God was by the Old Testament Authors based on their cultural norms and beliefs.

Yes, and it changed and developed as their circumstances change.
