Pop-Christianity: A new breed of fake preachers
Progressive-humanist or “Pop-Christianity” is similar to Moralistic Therapeutic Deism, except they are progressive liberals. Their teachings based on Judeo-Christian tradition yet embrace the demonic nature of liberal ideology.
It’s somewhat covert atheism because it denies the true nature of God. These churches drag Jesus as “buddy” and call God “Big G.” Some of its preachers are riddled with tattoos, practically rap artists, sporting the latest Nike shoe.
Their crux, “It’s OK to be who you are, as you are, and live the life you want for as long as you do not harm anyone—God will always love you.”
Antithetical to scriptures
God is Holy and just. Moses stood in Holy ground before a burning bush. Just because Jesus broke the chain of death doesn’t mean “Holy fear” is optional.
Personal holiness is not optional
We can’t live a life we used to live. Daily repentance must take place if we say we are God’s children. We cannot tweak God’s truth simply because it might turn people off.
What they say may sound beautiful and uplifting to a depraved mind, but it’s all about “you,” and that’s the nature of the devil (1 John 2:15-17). No wonder Jesus will say to some, “I never knew you.”
“For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.“
Matthew Paul Turner
