WILL TRUE GRACE PLEASE STAND UP?

False grace was exposed in a video in which Dr Michael Brown was being interviewed by Sid Roth. It's a clear, compelling, well-balanced, Word-based presentation.

Brown deftly fielded questions on grace-related issues submitted by various Christians to Roth's TV show.  

He was in his element as he demolishedone by one, using the whole counsel of God’s Wordthe various premises held by those who overemphasise grace. 

Topics covered in this video include:

Believing in a message of false grace gives a false sense of security. Indeed, deception coupled with ‘itching ears (2 Timothy 4:3) will spell doom for many.

Didn’t Jesus warn that “the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many” (Matthew 7:13)?  

Didn’t Jesus warn that “not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven” (Matthew 7:21)?

The doctrine of false grace is part of the overall cloud of deception that comes upon believers in these tumultuous end times.  *

                                                                       



We should be wise up by preparing ourselves against deception. Jesus warns that deception is a prominent feature during the end times (The Olivet Discourse).

“For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many” (Matthew 24:5). “For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect” (Matthew 24:24).

Childlike faith is commendable. But there are dangers when we are trustful and naïve like a child. http://bit.ly/1ibYdky

Satan is like a roaring lion who seeks to devour the weak and unwary (1 Peter 5:8). Believers have to be wisein fact, extremely vigilant and discerningif they want to stand up against deception in these last days.

Error is so skilled at imitating truth that the two are often being mistaken for each other. And even the electsupposedly mature leaderscan be deceived. If leaders are deceived, don’t you think the flock will fare even worse?

That is why it is so important to go back to basics. Be like the Bereans:

“Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true” ( Acts 17:11).

By equipping ourselves with a sound knowledge and understanding of God’s Word, taking into consideration the whole counsel of God, we will not be easily deceived by false teachings.

Jesus said, “If you obey my teaching, you are really my disciples” (John 8:31). But how are we to obey Him unless we earnestly study His Word and have a firm grasp of it? Therefore we need to be diligent to present ourselves approved to God, as workers who do not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15).

It is imperative for leaders to confront false teachings during these perilous end times. If they can identify with Paul the seriousness of the task they have been entrusted with—to feed the flock with solid teaching from the whole of God’s Word (Acts 20:27) as well as to correct and rebuke heresy (2 Timothy 4:2)—then people will not be so easily led astray from the faith.  http://bit.ly/1aFKueb

"Faith is good only when it engages truth; when it is made to rest upon falsehood it can and often does lead to eternal tragedy."  – A. W. Tozer, theologian

“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” – Soren Kierkegaard, philosopher
