Willow Creek Splits with Exodus International
Willow Creek Community Church's formal relationship with Exodus International has ended.

While the decision to part ways dates back to 2009, news that the South Barrington megachurch had cut ties with Exodus, the world's largest ministry addressing homosexuality, did not surface until late June.

Scott Vaudrey of the elder response team said in writing that Willow Creek's decision was not intended as a social or political statement, but rather an indication of "a season of reviewing and clarifying some of our affiliations with outside organizations."

Alan Chambers, president of Exodus, disagrees. "The choice to end our partnership is definitely something that shines a light on a disappointing trend within parts of the Christian community," he said, "which is that there are Christians who believe like one another who aren't willing to stand with one another, simply because they're afraid of the ...

unbiblical doctrines of Sola Scriptura
Bibliophile,
Are you a Gnostic??
Is Roman Catholic theory Gnosticism?

I found this article on Gnosticism which sounds remarkably like the Roman Catholic penchant to go "outside" the Word of God and seek traditions... etc.

"it is common to refer to Gnosticism as an early ‘Christian’ heresy that stressed privately revealed knowledge above that which is generally available to everyone through the Scriptures.’

Note such is the attempt at gaining knowledge (that is a knowledge of spiritual truth and meaning) that exists outside of God’s revealed truth discovered in the Bible. Remember that we have already said that for the professed Christian, Jesus Christ Himself is all wisdom and knowledge. So, outside of Him there is no such truth or secret knowledge to be gained.

Do we need other methods, ways, means, & techniques (other than what the Bible itself provides and sanctions) to give us insight into the mind and will of God? Or is the Bible alone sufficient? Are there hidden, secret mysteries yet to be got concerning the Person of God? Or has God given us all in His Word the Bible? Why not let the Bible speak for itself." = See 2Timothy 3:16, 17.

As a baptist there are many things I disagree on with other churches. We need to stand on Gods Word.

All I meant is that too many people get caught in the trap of spending all of their time and energy on blasting other denominations. We need to show them where they have strayed from the faith, but we also need to do it in the right way.

I just want to clarify my comment. I do believe as the body of Christ we need to stand firmly on Gods Word. We should not alter our views and beliefs for the sake of political correctness.

I am a baptist

Before you think that it is wrong to take an uncompromising stand for true Bibilical Doctrine against blatant open sin and heresy, in a word 'The Truth is Worth Dying For' you might want to prayerfully watch the brief video clip Bullwhip Guy

And listen with honest consideration to the excellent message here on SermonAudio titled: When Peace Costs Too Much

IMHO one of the cruelist most evil sins we could commit against anyone is to give them a false assurance that they are right with God when His very own word, The Bible (not our opinion) says they're wrong, they're in sin and error, and they will perish forever in hell if they die unrepentant and unbelieving against the Truth of God and Christ.

Can I hear a hearty amen?

Roman Catholics will continue to bend the knee to the (so-called) papal antichrist

**(Matt 16:18 Jesus' and Peter's successor)

AND the Scriptures

**(as I did when converting: I knelt and kissed the Bible repenting of the unbiblical doctrines of Sola Scriptura and Sola Fide remaining in the PCA's confessions)

AND join the growing list of (so-called) idolaters

**(Ex 25:18-19 - make two cherubim of beaten gold)

who have fallen on the (so-called) idolatrous

**(Rev 12:1 - Mary with crown of 12 stars)

(so-called) blasphemous

**(Jn 6:53 - eat My flesh)

sword

**(of self-righteousness).

Check. Check. Check.

That Willow Creek leaders are teaming with the RCC is a blessing for them and their 1,000,000s of followers.

Also
"Roman Catholics will continue to bend the knee to the papal antichrist, rather than the Scriptures, and join the growing list of idolaters who have fallen on the idolatrous blasphemous sword."

"Ecumenical outlook"
Quote;
"No lines are drawn at Willow Creek to guard against Charismatic influences. Consequently, there is also an openness to Roman Catholicism. For example, Hybels had a Catholic priest speak to his church on ‘What Protestants can learn from Catholics’.

Hybels asked the priest whether he was born again. He answered: ‘We were born and have grown up, but I think we must repeatedly be born and born again. Not only once, but again and again’. Although staff members asked him repeatedly to correct these unbiblical statements, senior pastor Hybels let them go unchallenged." Evangelical Times 2001

So you are not too far away from Willow Creek, Bibliophile.

The seeker nonsense one would wish would go away, as Gil Rugh said, "....The Gospel message preached today is being adjusted so it no longer is focused on Christ coming to suffer and die and deal with our sin and guilt before God. To be rather a means of our finding fulfillment and personal satisfaction. Personal fulfillment is not the basic issue addressed in the Gospel." from the summary for the sermon, Inroads of Heresies that was given eight years ago.

Christ have mercy upon us.
The Church of Scotland has "split" over the issue of the homosexual abomination - because there are two religions operating there (1) Christianity, (2) Liberalism.

Liberals are those who cannot read or receive the truth from Scripture.
"10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved."

Like the Roman Catholics the Liberals work on a merit based (works) religion which of course will fail before God.

Christians on the other hand know that God wrote Scripture, from cover to cover, and therefore obey ALL THE COUNSEL OF GOD!

What the Kirk "Christians" have long needed to do is "turn away" from the Liberal heretics, as they did the papists, and witness truth alone!

2Tim 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away."
