DISCERNMENT INC: RECIPE: Lots of rabbit trails and deception; not much gospel of Jesus Christ
Wandering a Maze of Speculation
DISCERNING THE HORRIFIC
One of the signs of the times in which we live is the “discernment ministry.” These organizations started appearing in the early 1990s; they claim to handle one of primary duties of the Holy Spirit: discernment.
Discernment ministries do have several clear functions.
- They warn of a few high-profile antichrist deceivers.
- They offer much speculation.
- They lead potential Christians away from Jesus Christ.
- They sell a variety of merchandise (DVDs, CDs, conference packages, books, etc.)
- They are silent about particular problems in the churches. For example, they all promote the lie that churches are centers of godly activity.
- They offer a wide variety of alternatives to sharing the gospel; offering a maze of rabbit trails in which to the aspiring Christian can easily get lost.
