Christians Actually Evangelize? The Horror!
I really need to get over being irritated at churches doing and saying idiotic, unbiblical things. But I can't help it. It's infuriating.
Note this little blog post where some are taking Dr. Al Mohler to task for saying that Congressman Anthony Weiner of Weinergate fame needs Jesus. Imagine that! Christians actually evangelizing the lost. Oh, the humanity! Oh, the horror!
Note also the reaction of some United Church of Christ congregations and those of apostate like mind. Tsk tsk. Let's just throw the Lord Jesus Christ's Great Commission under the bus, shall we?
In Galatians and 2 Corinthians, the Apostle Paul talks about "false brethren." In 2 Thessalonians, he talks about the coming apostasy of the last days. The Apostle John described such false teachers and "brethren" in stark terms . . . They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us (1 John 2:19).
Dr. Mohler is absolutely right and on target. Anthony Weiner does need to come to repentance and put his trust in Christ for salvation. There is no other way to the Father but through Christ. Scripture makes no apologies for this truth, and neither should those of us who call ourselves Christians.
