The fall of mankind occurred only three chapters into Genesis. Three chapters! In a perfect setting, the slippery serpent uttered a few words that changed the course of history, “Did God really say?” (Genesis 3:1). Those words opened up room for doubt, curiosity, and disobedience. We have felt the effects ever since.
I wonder today if those same words by Satan ‘Did God really say?’ are being whispered into the ears of many Christians. I really didn’t want this to be my battle, but I have felt so convicted by the Holy Spirit to not be quiet. If we don’t speak up, we are also responsible for the moral and spiritual decline we are witnessing throughout the world. Progressive Christianity is pushing a narrative that changes what God said is good and right according to His Word. Some are even saying that the Bible itself isn’t God’s Word. They have heard the whispers of deceit by Satan, and they have taken a bite.
We cannot continue to be silent about this, especially within the Church. False doctrine must be exposed. False teachers must be called to repentance. The world will not discipline those who have gone astray. Instead, they will applaud them because those who go astray, yet still claim to be “Christian,” will look more like them and less like Jesus. And we all know, the world does not like Jesus.
Charles Spurgeon said, “Anything is better than the dead calm of indifference.” Don’t settle in the camp of indifference, especially if you believe the Truth. We must speak up to expose the lies.
