Reinventing Christianity for our day

Numerous people are rethinking Christianity in contra-distinction to evangelical church.   Because we live in a Postmodern culture the church must adopt new ways to reach them. They believe they have answers for our generation and they call it Emergent.

The Issue Of Other Religious Practices

by Mike Oppenheimer

As Worship in the Church

The Emergent church began as a grassroots movement of those seeking to understand what the Christian Church should look like in the 21st century. Their concept is - because the culture and thoughts have changed -we must adapt.

"We must imagine and pursue the development of new ways of being followers of Jesus " ¦ new ways of doing theology and living biblically, new understandings of mission, new ways of expressing compassion and seeking justice, new kinds of faith communities, new approaches to worship and service, new integrations and conversations and convergences and dreams."

"Will We get Fooled Again?" 

The newest wandering star breaking forth on the on the Signs and wonders scene is--Todd Bentley a Canadian evangelist from Abbotsford, BC, Canada. He and his team hold crusades in over 55 nations where they say, "Thousands have been saved, healed and delivered." 

Before we move on into examining the teachings of Bentley and the meetings in depth we need to pause and consider the Word of God's teaching on these supernatural matters.

The basis of some people"s Christianity is if a miracle takes place, it is sufficient evidence for them to believe it is from God. They never check it out or test it; something that God commands us to do. The Bible teaches us that Satan uses this method to deceive the naà ¯ve, the immature, and the ignorant to remove them from walking in the truth of the word. Someone who argues that miracles are from God 100 percent of the time is already open to deception. This becomes a major flaw from those who are willing to accept all miracles that happens is from God. To avoid testing is to neglect many of the Bibles commands for our safety. Jesus warns us about a movement in the last days that will be done by many coming in his name (Mt.24:5-6) and include miraculous signs taking place. Matthew 24:23-25: "Then if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or 'There!' do not believe it. For false christ's and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect."  If a Christian neglects this they will be deceived.

Todd Bentley - When The Angel Came

by Mike Oppenheimer
Let Us Reason Ministries

The Branham connection

There is a difference of saying someone is fired up or on fire and having an experience with fire, Angels of fire, pillars of fire or the fire falling,. These are two very different concepts. After Bob Jones convinced Bentley that he could visit heaven at any time, (he claims to go there daily), Bentley had escalating encounters with angels and visits to heaven.   No apostle ever taught how to go into a trance and be transported away to heaven- this is the new age movements supernatural power in the church among those who cannot discern the true gifts of the Spirit and a counterfeit. Either he is inventing stories not caring about the truth, or he is being visited by counterfeit spirits as angels of light which becomes dangerous to him and others he is teaching.

Caught up to deception and a dark visitation

We begin with a video account of Bentley telling his story of going to heaven via a pillar of fire and having the pillar of fire visit his room later. By this account alone he is disqualified from teaching the word, which he has proven, that he has no intention of teaching correctly anyway. Bentley does not seem to be of a sound mind, he certainly is not of sound doctrine.

Todd Bentley - The Fire-Fresh Fire

by Mike Oppenheimer
Let Us Reason Ministries

What Bentley is teaching is not new " “ much of it can be found in the Latter Rain teachings that went through the late 40"s, 50-60"s. O.L. Jaggers taught that God is "constantly revealing His Word and giving us new truths."  This is why the Latter Rain is also called a restoration movement. Because God is still speaking they believe he is still delivering new doctrines, these are confirmed by experience.

by Mike Oppenheimer
Let Us Reason

At Christmas time, Lauren Green on Fox News hosted Rick Warrens Christmas service called "Christmas with Rick Warren."  This is an opportunity most pastors would love to have- a large captive audience at Christmas time to give the saving message of the gospel to millions of people.

Living In A Time Of Confusion

by Mike Oppenheimer
Let Us Reason Ministries

James 3:13-4:1: "Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom.   But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from   abovebut is earthly, sensual, demonic. For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and everyevil thing are there. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle,willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. Nowthe fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace." 

By Mike Oppenheimer

Who is willing to follow the blind leading the blind?

Benny Hinn has a reputation to some as a miracle man, a man who moves in the supernatural, who sees miracles on a regular basis. But to others, he is a reputed false teacher.
