Dangerous Doctrine Shifts in the Church
Here are some of the issues that today are eating away at the church – watering down the very faith on which the church is built. You can do something about these in your church:
1. The spread of liberal theology and a silence on, and denial of, the infallibility and inerrancy of the Bible. (2 Pet 1:21; 2 Tim 3:16; Rev 22:18-19) (Click here for the 'Chicago Statement', the most important creed of Biblical inspiration.)
2. The presence of divorce and re-marriage in our churches. Whilst Christians should be very loving and sensitive in dealing with this, they should also be no less firm and uncomprimising than our Lord was. (Mal 2:16; Mat 19:9; Mark 10:11-12)
3. A silence on, and denial of, the fact that homosexualism, in practice and in thought, is a sin before God. Whilst Christians should be very loving and sensitive in dealing with this, they should also be no less firm and uncomprimising than our Lord was. (Rom 1:25-27; 1 Cor 6:9; 1 Tim 1:10)
4. The spread of feminism through our churches, destroying families, people and churches through silence on, and denial of, the God-given, liberating differentiation in function and authority between the sexes of man and woman, with its reflection of the very nature of God. This touches nothing less than the nature of the Trinity of God. (1 Cor 11:3-16; Eph 5:22-33; 1 Tim 1:12) (Click here for the 'Danvers Statement', the most important creed on Biblical manhood and womanhood.)
Fighting to keep these out of your church might take more commitment than just signing a petition, but it will mean infinitely more.
Are you willing to fight these?
We’re not talking about the worldwide church, or the church in the country, or even your denomination – just your church, your congregation. Why don’t you start there? A bucket is filled drop by drop.

We will soon have messages available on the issue of liberal theology as well as why it is so important today to affirm both the Bible's infallibility and inerrancy in our churches. And what it means.
