Edmund Burke said that, "the only thing necessary for evil men to triumph is for good men to do nothing." I like to add that if you know something is wrong and evil and affecting people and you do not speak up on it then you not loving people. This principle can be applied to the Christianity.

Two Opposites Cannot be the Same or True

-John Hagee's supports Israel but at the same time abandons giving the gospel to the Jews-

James 3:10-12: "Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so. Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter from the same opening? Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Thus no spring can yield both salt water and fresh."

An Inclusive Evangelism

by Mike Oppenheimer
Let Us Reason Ministries

When the book Perpetuated in Righteousness came out in the early 90s we plainly saw a problem with the author Daniel Kikawa claiming that the Hawaiians could have come from Israel - as Israel as they were traveling into the Promised Land another exodus was taking place a s a group was called to Hawaii. He even claimed they had numerous teachings that God gave Israel by looking at the gospel in the stars. P rior to any missionary coming to Hawaii with the Bible they had the teaching of the trinity. He made bold claims like this without any references- Many accounts in Polynesia of the creation of man. Some of them state that the supreme triune God made the heavens and earth in six days and rested on the seventh day (p.70 4th ed.) see http://www.letusreason.org/Current67.htm - http://www.letusreason.org/Current68.htm

But what will you do in the end?

We are watching prophetic history unfold for the church and it is not turning out the way most would think. With each new wave of revival the promoters claimed God is pouring out his Spirit on all flesh, but all that happened is the deception deepened.

You have to love the truth and walk in it, to walk with Jesus, only then can you discern error. That means you must know his word CORRECTLY and be willing to search it daily. Did not Jesus say to worship God we must do so in Spirit. No, He said we are to worship in Spirit and in TRUTH. This is the missing element in Lakeland and every Toronto style revival. In one of his supernatural stories Todd Bentley said when he was abducted through a pillar of fire he landed on a table in heaven surrounded by angels and he heard God say "I desire truth on the inward parts." Precisely! Where was it?

Golden Calf Evangelism

by Mike Oppenheimer
www.letusreason.org

John 17:15-17: "I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. "They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. "Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. V. 19 "And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth."

The Bible tells us that Satan rules this worlds system, it is fallen and under his jurisdiction. Yet, as believers, we are to carry the message of truth in a world filled with falsehood. This is especially important to understand when it comes to the different cultures in the world that hold to various religious/ spiritual beliefs. Some of them contain a few similarities on the surface but when more closely examined they are not similar at all. Whatever is not in agreement with the Word of God is not from Jesus Christ, is not truth, and is to be rejected for our spiritual living. This would include "inclusive evangelism."

Nations With Or Without Gods

by Mike Oppenheimer
www.letusreason.org

Interviewer Danny Lehmann- ""¦now Daniel, something we touched on the other day in the book of Acts and who am I to say that the book of Acts has problems. But the problem with the book of Acts is that most all of the evangelism in the book of Acts is to Jewish based monothiestic people who understood the Bible and Moses and God in a personal relationship that Abraham had and so forth. In a precious few passages Acts 14 being very short and Acts 17 a little longer at Mars Hill Paul used the Greek name for God rather than the Hebrew name for God and he actually commended them for at least being religious and building an altar to this unknown God even though they didn't know that God and they weren't saved. And that brings us in to the application of Acts 17 how does this relate when we go Muslims for instance with their God Allah, to the Koreans, to the Japanese, to any culture who might have a name for God, or the closest AKA Don Richardson uses that term, the closest also known as that is in that culture to our Jehovah."

Foreign God's As God

by Mike Oppenheimer
www.letusreason.org

Premise -The Creator God of the Bible is not a foreign God of these nations- their God sent his son. This is clearly a paralogism.

Throughout the broadcast one of the more disturbing underlying themes was that we should not present God as a foreign God to the nations but as their own God.

""¦ I talked with someone whose, she grew up in Japan in a Christian family and yet she felt Jesus was a foreign God. And why did she feel that is- Everytime she would read the Bible, it be, the words would be in kanji and when it comes to the name of Jesus it would be in katakana. So its just like y'know if we read in our English Bible and then Jesus the foreign God said, this is what it says to them when they are doing it, and then the foreign God Jesus did this, and the foreign God Jesus did that. Because its in katakana it tells them that everytime they read that, he is not our God " (Word to the World interview with Daniel Kikawa, Feb.6, 2006, #1).

The God's Of The Nations Are Not God (YHWH)

by Mike Oppenhimer
www.letusreason.org

Kikawa's whole concept is one big generalization that does not take into account the actual history of each nation. He assumes that if they have a name for a supreme God (one of the heavens, which are often called sky gods) who is benevolent, that this is sufficient to make the case for Romans 1. All religious systems grew out from men turning away from the truth. Noah's worship was pure and was handed down but degeneration quickly took place. Monotheism led to polytheism and then to further corruption with creature worship. Though these cultures may point back to the beginning of history and have kept distortions of the accounts i.e. the deluge in Chinese, Hindu, Egyptian, Greek or South American traditions. Nearly all systems of religion contain some supreme deity above the others or have a parent deity causing (born or created) sub-deities. This is why God made Israel a theocracy and gave the true record. That through these people the whole world would know the truth.

Cultivating other Gods

by Mike Oppenheimer
www.letusreason.org

THE BIBLE- Romans 1:18-20 "who suppress the truth in unrighteousness"

Daniel Kikawa-"by finding the native name of God which in, in Japan we found that name is Ameno-mi-nakanushi, which means the God in the glorious center of heaven and he is their creator God who created everything. And so we found this name of this creator God there, and it immediately says he's a Japanese God and he loves them. This is what Paul did in Acts 17" (Word to the World interview with Daniel Kikawa Feb 16, 2006 #9)

Conclusion of Golden Calf Evangelism

by Mike Oppenheimer
www.letusreason.org

It becomes evident that this is not what the apostles delivered to the church, this is something FOREIGN, altered. This is not upholding the faith but destroying the faith that was delivered to the saints. Kikawa wants to go back, back into the ancient past where the creator of a culture is generally mentioned or where some individual may have known something about the creator. He ignores the completed revelation that is in our hands that is to be distributed- as is. He cites Job and Mechizedik as examples of those who held a knowledge of God but these were not nations but rare individuals in these PAGAN nations (Canaan, which God destroyed). There were no nations that worshipped God "“ the creator correctly, except one- Israel. And this is only because God specifically revealed himself to them; yet they at times fell into idolatry with this revelation. If there were any redeeming qualities of these nations God would not have had to remove Abraham from among the pagans (Chaldeans) to train him and make a nation, a theocracy under Him. Contrary to what Kikawa is teaching, God did not purify any nation. If we look at Egypt as an example, He took his people out and judged those who opposed them. And He continues to call us out from the worlds beliefs.
