Appalachia: Drug ravaged turning to God
The mountain scourge of drug abuse - most notably homemade methamphetamine and prescription painkillers such as OxyContin - has caused an assortment of societal problems, from broken marriages to escalating crime. Drug abusers are robbing pharmacies, burglarizing homes and starting prostitution rings to finance their habits.

In the midst of all this, some churches are seeing exponential growth.

"I've been in ministry more than 40 years, and I've never seen a movement of God in one community such as it is there," said Larry Martin, a retired mission leader for the Kentucky Baptist Convention.

Kenneth Collins, a professor of church history at Asbury Seminary in Wilmore, said that, as ironic as it sounds, the same force that drove people away from God is now having a hand in driving them back - drugs. ...

Why do believers let dogmatic beliefs divide them? Christ prayed that all believers should be one, as he and the father were one. In the case that you gave about baptism, we know that both positions atre false. Judas Iscariot would have partaken in the Water Baptism of John....but Christ tells us that he was a Devil from the beginning. Contrariwise, the theif that defended Christ on the cross was promised that he would be with Christ in heaven, and we obviously wasn't baptized...therefore, how can we assert either of these dogmatic positions? We (as Christians) need to do the things that God has commanded us to do....and to teach others todo the same, instead of "majoring in the minors."

Let's get all these denominations together and preach a sermon on believer's baptism or on spiritual gifts. Doctrine divides. That's why ecumenical fellowships such as Promise Keepers will not allow those subjects to be scripturally preached at their wicked meetings. Doctrine takes a back seat. One denomination believes baptism is required in order to be born again, another believes baptism is for believers only. When those issues are ignored the truth of the gospel suffers.

But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

The religious people didn't like what the Lord Jesus Christ preached.

Luke 4:28-29 And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong.

Jesus taught in the same temple as those He disagreed with on the most fundamental issues, yet surely their were things in which there was agreement. How is it determined that when the gospel of Christ meets with error, "the gospel suffers, and sound doctrine takes a back seat."?

I'm glad to hear many people are being turned from drug addiction, that's a good thing. But this article credits ecumenism as the key to religious revival. This is one of the snares of the devil.

The article goes on to read, "...church leaders issued a call to action, bringing denominations together on a single issue. Never mind that they disagreed on some theological issues. They agreed that drugs were bad."

We have to remember, the devil doesn't mind giving a few victories to Christians if it will advance his evil schemes, in this case ecumenism. When churches that do not agree on theological issues yoke together around some social cause, the gospel of Christ suffers, and sound doctrine takes a back seat. This is one of the leading causes of the great apostasy in this nation. This is just another one of the wiles of the devil to bring about the end-time one-world harlot religious system that will produce Satan's superman, the Antichrist.

Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with TRUTH.
