Your job is not to fight them. I WARN about many deceivers and wicked on this blog. This is to warn people to get AWAY from them and their false teachings. One of my main focuses on this blog is to have people warned about the false Dominionist antichrist church system and help them get away from it's false teachers and and doctrines. Scripture says MARK THEM AND AVOID THEM.
Rom 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
We can't control people. They will do what they want to do. And if you think that the knowing deceivers who are part of the higher "networks" are going to come crawling back and apologize for their deceit, it is simply not going to happen. I remember years ago when I was a new Christian, and people would tell me, you need to write so and so, with your complaints about their teachings and doctrines. One Catholic even told me to contact the Pope, LOL. That used to make me laugh, were they kidding me? Even as if some of these lauded and powerful types would take the time why would someone want to put themselves in that position? Why would I expect honesty from those I already see deceiving purposefully? They could tell a person anything, smile, these types, know the arts of lying, and deceit and fooling most people, it's how they rose through the ranks.
In secular politics and business, they know the psychopaths of the world are more apt to rise through the ranks, those operating without a conscience to hinder themselves with, are the types to succeed in this now grown more amoral society. The rates for pyschopaths on Wall Street are said to range from 1 in 3! to 10%. What is it in religion? I wonder.
In this world there are many people who operate by different rules, the psychologists call them psychopaths and sociopaths, the Bible calls them seared and without conscience. Given the times we are in, I dare say their numbers are rising. It is essentially the same thing. The wicked. You simply cannot expect them to react to emotional treaties, etc. They do not play by the same rules and if you act like you are dealing with normal human beings who still hold consciences, that is way to end up in trouble.
" the financial elite and their servants who maintain this system, appear to exhibit behavior that is consistent with symptoms associated with a medical disorder known as psychopathy.(*) Psychopaths, also called sociopaths, are categorized as those who exhibit superficial charm and intelligence, and are absent of delusions or nervousness. Their traits include:
Deceitful and manipulative behavior (either goal-oriented or for the delight of the act itself)
Lack of remorse or shame
Poor judgment and failure to learn by experience
Incapacity for love
Poverty of general emotions
Loss of insight
Unresponsiveness in personal relations
A frequent need for excitement
An inflated self-worth
An ability to rationalize their behavior
A need for complete power
A need to dominate others"
How much of that describes much of the false religious leadership exposed on this blog, or even the minions who worship mammon running Wall Street and politics? Ever notice nothing seems to "touch" them where normal emotions are not part of the play? These are people who have moved beyond all conscience. When warning about the new world order, average folks of all types can tell that something is very different about those running the show now, they do not seem to have average emotions even. Well in my opinion that is because they do not.
1Ti 4:2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
Part of their attributes is to LIE. Even two years ago I never knew the level of deceit, I would find in the evangelical church and later even many of the ministries, I suppose it was like going layer by layer. One is saved and finds out the Roman Catholic church is false, usually at that same time they realize the mainline churches with their sacraments and overtly homosexual ministers have fallen away, then the next thing to be shown is the falseness that has invaded the evangelical world and so forth and so on.
This is why we should not be shocked anymore that things are so bad, that some of these people are running "discernment" ministries, where they have no problem using one warning to cover up other things, such as I warned about on the controlled opposition article.
One warning I believe is very important in the Bible is this warning. I had to start taking this one seriously, in life. One can share the truth, but there is a point where doing so is throwing pearls before the swine. With people if they are OPEN to discussions and folks of conscience, I have no problem sharing gospel truths and other things but with the hostile people who you realize do not "see" and refuse to "see", it's better to just AVOID THEM if possible. I had to learn this even when I used to hang out on Christian message boards. Seeing Christians argue with those who reject the gospel for literally years seemed a total waste of time.
Mat 7:6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
In other words once you know someone is a "DOG", you get away, rend basically means RIP you apart.
The strongs for "REND" translated from the GREEK "rhēgnymi"is this...
1) to rend, burst or break asunder, break up, break through
a) to tear in pieces
b) to break forth
1) into joy, of infants or dumb persons beginning to speak
c) to distort, convulse
1) of a demon causing convulsions in a man possessed
2) to dash down, hurl to the ground (a common occurrence in cases of demon possession and epilepsy)I have seen psychologist diagnosed pyschopathy/sociopathy first hand due to work I used to do, so I have seen this for myself first hand and how it operates. They often do smile, quite a bit, and are very friendly on the surface, with the sleight of hand happening beyond the scenes.
The majority of people are just people like you and me, who were like ourselves sinners in need of the gospel, who have a conscience telling them things hopefully that one day will lead to conviction via the Holy Spirit and salvation. Preach the gospel to them, show them love. The world needs more of both. None of us are perfect, we all have sin, there are people with other sin problems and "holds" who still hold to a conscience and are not seared, but why does the Bible warn us about reprobates?
Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
What is a reprobate? I know many of us, do not want to give up on anyone or think anyone is a lost cause. I have that idealism where I imagined that some on top actually broke away, and really repented, that is why when one Calvary Chapel preacher seemed to break away, that I thought that was a great thing until I found out more. That was a major disappointment. I would fathom that a reprobate is one of these people who is seared and the conscience long ago got burnt away.
One thing interesting about reprobates in the Bible is that SCRIPTURE tells us, that they SAY THEY KNOW GOD...aren't there plenty of nonbelievers out there who say they do not "know God" or do not believe in Him? I find this verse very interesting in that way. Does this mean that the Bible is warning us of those who claim religion and "knowing God" but really do not, and are among this group? I think so. Remember God's Word is for instruction here.
Tts 1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny [him], being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
As I have said before, Christians need to know what we are dealing with here. There is a reason for all these warnings in the Bible.
Mat 10:16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
