61 Percent of Practicing Christians Agree With Some 'New Spirituality' Beliefs
A new survey reveals the scope of influence of non-Christian belief systems on the mindsets of practicing Christians, with large percentages of them agreeing with ideas from other faiths and secular philosophies.

The research from Barna in cooperation with Summit Ministries released this week measured how much the central beliefs of other worldviews like "new spirituality," secularism, postmodernism, and Marxism have affected the beliefs of Christians about the world and how it should be.

Their "widespread influence upon Christian thinking is evident not only among competing worldviews, but even among competing religions," the survey report reads. ...

No exactly the opposite Texan.
Calvin correctly believed in an all god doctrine, hence removing any man made doctrines.
Jew or gentile, if decreed before the foundation of creation, that god chose you, then you'll accept Christ. He's the only way for any to heaven.
No matter who you are, there's no heaven without accepting Jesus the Christ.
PS.
Warning brethren, the person who posted below my comment jokes of child rape in the Catholic Church in Australia.
Warning!

I'm a bit surprised that the author of this story thinks the law of reaping and sowing is unscriptural.

I have found that social media is a platform for combining mystic and gnostic ideas with Christianity. Some professing Christians have FB pages that more resemble New Age books than Christianity

btw- The Elect of the Church of Ephesus are neither Jew nor Gentile, but new creatures in Christ

1. But ALL Elect are elect from the foundation of the world (Eph 1:4) And only they need to receive the Indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Only the Elect can believe when indwelt.

2. The Word of God is eternal and addressed to ALL (R) ALL the elect of God during all of the worlds existence. What was taught as doctrine in beginning is the same doctrine today. Truth never changes - It cannot - else it would not be truth.

BTW: Calvinism is the same doctrine which Christ and the Apostles taught. Again Truth never changes otherwise it is not truth. Calvinism is Biblical truth doctrine.

Pretty easy to figure that out. - IF you are elect.

the evil ravishing of dispensational Zionism... gentiles save themselves through a works based sinners prayer and jews were never really sinners to begin with because they have God's promises without needing faith?

its another form of cultural Marxism that comes in to rip apart what God has joined together, in this case...

a remnant of people, who's hearts have been turned from stone to having the law written on their hearts through the atoning sacrifice of the only begotten Son, a converted people Jew and Gentile.

what GOD and GOD alone has joined together, let no man destroy.

in these dark days, both the Jew and Gentile need the teaching of election to strengthen them... that they have been sealed by the HOly Spirit and that those who endure til the end will be saved.

the evil one would want to bring doubt and confusion and pull the weakest from the flock to believe that the sacrifice of Christ was insufficient.

race baiting is not the gospel.

and the New Testament was written for all who would believe.

Perhaps you could explain why you will not apply Ephesians 1 to Gentile Christians. Thank you.

that the work of your Conversion may not miscarry..
Do you question whether a man may not be saved, without conversion, regeneration,& holyness? Open your Bibles, &see what God saith, Jn3:3, 6. Mt18:3;2Cor.5:17;cRm8:9. Heb12:14. Do you think a man may be saved without Knowledge. Let Scripture judge, 2 Cor4:3, 4;Jn17.:3;Hos4:6. Do you think a man may be saved that doth as the most do? &goeth in the common way of the world. Search the Scripture &see, Mt7:13&20. 16&22:14. Lk12. 32. Do you think an unhumbled Soul may be saved? that never was contrite&broken hearted for sin? Try by Is57:15&66:2;Ps51:17. Lk4:18. Mt11:28. Do you think a man can be the Servant of God, that liveth a fleshly life, & will keep his sin? Try by Rm8:13. Jn3:19. Eph5:5, 6,1 Jn3:9,10. Do you doubt whether it be necessary to make so much adoe to be saved, &to be so strict, &make Religion our cheifest business? Try by Ps1:1, 2, 3,
1Pet4:18. Heb12:14. Lk10:42. Lk13:24. Ephor:15, 16. Do you think a man can be saved that is a worldling? whose heart is more
on Earth then heaven. Try by 1Jn2:15. Phil3:19. Col3:1. Lk14:26, 33. Do you doubt whether you should serve God with your families? &instruct them, &pray with them. Try by Jos24:15. Dt6:6, 7. Dan6:10,11;Ex20:10.

(4) "Practical atheism.
"It has nothing at all to do with belief. Indeed it accepts the affirmations of theism. It has reference wholly to the mode of life. It is to live as though there was no God.
"It takes the form often of complete indifference to the claims of the Divine Being or again of outbroken and defiant wickedness (Ps 14:1). That this form of atheism is widely prevalent is well known. It is accompanied in many cases with some form of unbelief or prejudice or false opinion of the church or Christianity....practical atheism is widespread in its influence and a dangerous element in our modern life (compare Isa 31:1; Jer 2:13,17,18; 18:13-15). Whatever the form, whether it be that of religious agnosticism, denying that we can know that God exists, or critical atheism, denying that the evidence to prove His existence is sufficient, or dogmatic, or practical atheism, it is always a system of negation and as such tears down and destroys....Since there is no God, there is no right nor wrong, and human action is neither good or bad, but convenient or inconvenient...." ---Jacob W.

There are many church members who are practicing grifters. They'll present themselves as having a " ministry " , which allows them to pull their kids out of the small school district, load up the 1996 Jimmy, and go town to town, telling sad stories and showing off Wilber the singing pig, They'll have their kids beg for food and gas money. Literally, we are subsidizing their bad decision making and paying dearly for it. The Grifters that are in churches , take money from the church budget and put it in their fat sweaty hands. And no one calls them out or runs them out on a rail.

Almost, Adriel. Only believers are indwelt. The verse speaks of believers. Not all elect are indwelt, because not all elect are yet believers.

""practicing Christians, with large percentages of them agreeing with ideas from other faiths and secular philosophies.""

Wonder how many quote "Christians" u/q from the modernist selections of Liberalism, Nominals, JW's, Roman Catholics and all the other heretics and Pharisees were used on this survey.

Agreeing with "OTHER" faiths - (actually there is only one true faith) - comes from the province of the nominal Christians who are free-willers, salvation by works, assent to moralistic views and arminians. In other words they "believe" by human conviction and not by Faith the gift of God.

Satan and sin have some very powerful deceptions of false witness and false religions in the world, and many of these go to churches and describe their beliefs as biblical.

Biblical faith (Calvinism) is not complicated or confused by worldliness since as TULIP points out God provides the grace support to perceive truth in Scripture and doctrine. Eph 1:11. John 6:37,44.

Then there is the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the elect;
"Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his."

But it doesn't work
old paths rejected
For Shacky murk

Chronological snobbery of evolution minded thinks New is better- as though New Coke was somehow wetter-
Their ascended Master sweet Lord taught
"godconsciousness" by working in Spiritual worship of creation to evolve to the truth within& turn from inner ignorance -internal divinity enlightens that "there is no sin "- as "sin has its own reward"- no guilt- a gilded age coming with its own reward --a coming One World government with a unified monetary system to give a glorious New Age-
Rejecting that stodgy old "there is a God, & He is not you- "
for a Momma goddess Shack to make the church "New"-

Hireling modernists' call
'Knowing' there is no god but all.

Jeremiah 6:16 Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.

....People in countries such as Brazil, Colombia, and Argentina frequently engage in a religion composed of polytheism, occultic spiritism, and a superstitious form of Catholicism. This spiritual smorgasbord enslaves millions of Latin America's peasantry. Certainly, official Catholic teaching does not sanction this kind of syncretistic religiosity. In certain respects, however, the Catholic church remains culpable....

...the Second Vatican Council's openness to forms of religious pluralism has greatly exacerbated the problem. Ideas such as the "anonymous Christian" (the belief in the possibility of salvation without explicit Christian faith -- even through non-Christian religions) as set forth by the influential German theologian, Karl Rahner, has acute and distressing repercussions.
