Recently, there has been a number of people pushing for an ungodly "unity" in the body of Christ. Listen, Muslims, Mormons, Catholics do not worship the same God. Muslims worship another Jesus out of the mouth of the false prophet, Muhammad. In recent times, Hillsong Pastor, Kenneth Copeland, and the Pope has made a video calling for unity within the Church. In all honesty, it is shocking. It is shocking because of the blatant hypocrisy. Not to mention, the downright heresy in a message pushing for religious inclusion, in that, it is making a false representation of Christ. Jesus Christ is not associated with Islam, Catholicism,nor Mormonism. It is psychologically inconceivable to suggest various religious affiliations are somehow connected. Christians worship the true Jesus Christ. We worship the Lord and savior who died on the cross for our sins. Moreover, through His shed blood, death, burial, and resurrection we can have eternal life, by simply believing on Jesus Christ.
There is no other religion that believes in the same Jesus.
"The internationally acclaimed HILLSONG so-called “church” pastored by Brian and Bobby Houston since 1978, is of the Devil. Such apostasy makes God want to vomit. They are a false church, a cult of singers and musicians based out of Sydney, Australia. Here's the corrupted gospel that they preach..."
According to their website:
“We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the 'new birth' we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives."
No mention of Christ's death, burial or resurrection. There is no mention, of the blood of Jesus. 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 defines the gospel as Jesus' death, burial and bodily resurrection three days later. Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ is what devils do (James 2:19).
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears.(2nd Timothy 4:3).”
This push for religious inclusion is nonsense, and it is a thoroughly unbiblical. Point being, we do not believe in the same gospel. In a video a pastor at Hillsong said, Muslims and Christians worship the same God. He asserted the only difference is we, Christians, call God - God and Muslims call him Allah.
The pastor is oblivious to the religion of Catholicism, Islam and Christianity.
John 12:43, “For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.”
The Bible teaches that our battle is not against human flesh and blood, but against the spiritual powers of darkness of Satan (Acts 26:18).
Some may disagree, but I do not have a problem with Christian rock. As a matter of fact, I love the Godly lyrics, guitars and uplifting beats. The lyrics and the content and context of the music matters over and above foolish opposition. If music praises the true Lord Jesus Christ, amen.
