Useful reminders Neo evangelicalism is not a denomination. As Dr. Suan Yew Quek states, one can be part of a fundamentalist, conservative or reformed setting and be a neo-evangelical in spirit.
Neo-evangelicalism postulates: 1. Evangelism is more important than separation, 2. The church should attract the world, and especially the youth, into the churches by giving them what they feel happy with, 3. We should try to make the Gospel more acceptable, or less offensive, by using methods that appeal, as drama/music, or services that the world needs, as Mum and Toddlers services, etc. 4. Hymnology should be replaced or be aided by modern songs, 5. Church committees should decide matters on the basis of what the majority wants, 6. Middle-line compromise, acceptance and popularity are preferable to contending for the faith, 7. Godliness comes second to success and pragmatism.
Neo-evangelicalism started on the basis of reverting the concept of separation, reckoning that the church was too rigid and strict to be accepted by the world. Its motto summarised : â€˜Letâ€™s unite to evangelise the world and forget godliness when it divides.â€™
Great warning. This was a very good message. I recommend it to everybody. Satan has a peculiar way of deceiving people with worship of Mary. We see this clearly in Romania, where the Eastern Orthodox Church worships Mary more than the Trinity.
Great lessons. This was a good and useful message for me. Yes, God call us to separate from compromise and to preach the Gospel for the salvation of sinners. Saved people will be salt and light in this world.
Reading Intelligent Atheist's comments to date I think any fair minded person will soon realise who is intolerant. "Priests of all religions" have not been involved in child abuse, chiefly RC priests. The RC Church opposed Copernicus, as did many of his fellow scientists. In your first comment you said you approved of all kinds of love, which is why I asked if you approved of paedophilia. Read "The Pink Swastika" for a well documented account of Nazi homosexuality. Ernst Roehm was not executed for being a homosexual but because he was head of 600,000 plus Brown Shirts and had spoken out against Hitler. The homosexuals who were put in concentration camps were mostly Communists or political opponents of Hitler. Some were incarcerated for being homosexual in order to cover up the widespread homosexuality among the Nazis.

One can be taught by the teachers selected by Christ, or one can be taught by whatever cultural standards are floating around. Frankly, the mental slavery to God is much more appealing than the mental slavery to the self-centered, intolerant hate-filled snobbery of the culture.
Intelligent Atheist, can you kindly watch the above video when convenient and come back with your critique. The first question is for you to understand 'who is brainwashing who?'
I am interested that you can tolerate the act of sodomy, but unable to tolerate Christian views and the bible
(please join the whole word to complete the above link)
The above link will be of interest as a matter of law and how as society has become sexualised that abominable acts have become acceptable.
Why do you tolerate what has always (historically) been seen as an abominable act until decriminalized in 1967 and is still seen as an abominable act by the majority of folk still able to think and reason for themselves?
Please view the video and we await your critique, then I am sure you will want to defend possibly both abominable acts with your intelligent thinking for yourself?
Watch the video and think it through logically, please.
First things first. I'm genuinely stunned that you've left me most recent statement up on your site. Religion has a long and ignoble history of stopping those that speak against it. If you don't believe me, just ask Capernicus. As for sola fide's comments. Actually no, i don't believe that paedophilia is love, it is a form of child hate. And for a religious person to use the example of paedophilia is hardly wise when you consider that preist of all faiths have long been guilty of that particularly abhorrent crime.
As for the comments on my intelligence?I am going to treat those comments with the contempt they deserve. Unless of course sola fide can prove that s/he has never made a typing / spelling error. The top Nazi's were homosxuals? The only top Nazi I known of to have been a homosexual was Ernst Rohm. And we all know what Hitler had done to him.

Does Intelligent Atheist believe that paedophilia is love? The Bible, God's word calls homosexuality "vile affections" and "lust". Those that practice these things have been given over to a "reprobate mind". Intelligent Atheist obviously isn't aware that many of the top Nazis were homosexual. In fact homosexuality was known as the "German Disease" in the Thirties. The only chance that Jewish boys had of surviving the concentration camps was to become the lovers of the camp guards. Incidentally, "Intelligent Atheist" isn't that intelligent judging by his spelling ability.
God states. "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them." Leviticus 20:18.
Also "Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another;" Romans 1:18-27.
Clearly the "LOVING" thing to do is to warn the homosexuals that the wrath of God is to come and that those who reject and change the truth of God as recorded in the Bible, will be condemned to hell and damnation.
The Liberals and the atheists (Psalm 14:1) are conducting hate towards others by not proclaiming what God has stated, ordained and made HIS law.
I have never heard such vile and ill informed homophobic bigotry as I have coming out of the mouths of people speaking on behalf of the Zion tabernacle church in Chester a couple of weeks ago. "Marriage neeeds YOU" the placards said, And a petion trying to stop same sex marriage being made lawful. When will peoople such as you relise that love in whatever form it takes, and in whatever form it is displayed can NEVER be "sinful" or "wicked". It should never be opposed but shouted from the highest mountain top.
Attitudes such as that displayed by these people ultimately leads to homosexuals being made to wear pink triangles on their clothing and being taken to places called Buchenwald,Treblinks,Bergen - Belsen, & Auschwitz - Birkenhau. But then agin, uou probaly approve of the Nazis because they got rid of all the "christ killing jews".
Just so you know, i am not a homosexual, I am someone who believes in equal rights for all despite race,colour,credd,sexuality, etc. Am attitude that is obviously not shared by you.
I'm fully expecting none of mu comments to be be put up on uour site, as you have no moral courage whatsoever, despite all your claims to the contary. You woyld not recognise the carpenter from Nazareth if he entered your church in person, on that you have my
