4 signs you’re an antichrist

Modern spirituality claims that it is possible to know God through a variety of ways: whether it be a spiritual encounter, private conviction or an angelic spirit-guide.

God is like buying groceries – it doesn’t really matter which supermarket you shop at, as long as you get bare essentials.  Some people might prefer Spar,  or Woolworth’s, or Pick n Pay – different strokes for different folks.

This approach to spirituality is by no means new.  It’s as misguided today as when the Apostle John first wrote his letter of 1 John.

The trouble was that many of these false teachers or antichrists were promoting their opinions under the guise of Christianity.  The false teachers spoke about Jesus, the Spirit and God; but what they were saying was not true.  They sounded Christian, but they were antichrist.

The hatefulness of LGBT-affirming churches

Many churches today have embraced the new sexual revolution in the name of love.

“As long as people love one another and are true to themselves”, is the new battle-cry.

These LGBT-affirming churches say that they are very loving and caring to affirm same-sex relationships, same-sex marriage and the notions of transgender and gender fluidity.

Churches and church leaders not affirming LGBT relationships are lampooned as bigots, homophobic and hatemongers.

In stark contrast, the letter of 1 John in the New Testament (the letter of love!), says that the LGBT-affirming churches and leaders are not acting in love, but rather in hate, because they are not telling those in their care the truth about sin.
