The Dangerous Time of False Unity


When you blend two or three ingredients together, can you ever un-blend them?  We know there is a false unity that is changing the face of Christianity as we know it.

"The leaven of the Church Growth Movement has now virtually penetrated all of professing Christendom bringing about cries of “peace, peace,” and turning the the mission of the church into bringing about God’s supposed dream that all unite and make the world a better place."  -Christian Research Network

But we know from Scripture that this falling away from the faith is anything but a good thing. Sharing a thought-provoking article from pastor and teacher Ken Silva over at Apprising Ministries:

The times we are living in are dangerous for the true members of the Body of Christ as we near the end of this age of God’s grace.

The old Scottish preacher Henry Drummond was right on target when he said:

[Jesus] built no church [buildings], wrote no book, left no money, and erected no monuments, yet show m


e ten square miles in the whole earth without Christianity where the life of man and the purity of women are respected and I will give up Christianity.
