By Hank Hanegraaff
Nearly 20 years in the past Hank Hanegraaff’s award-winning Christianity in Crisis alerted the area to the hazards of a cultic circulation inside Christianity that threatened to undermine the very origin of biblical religion. yet within the twenty first century, there are new dangers—new lecturers who threaten to do extra harm than the last.
These should not vague lecturers that Hanegraaff unmasks. we all know their names. we've seen their faces, sat of their church buildings, and heard them shamelessly pontificate and advertise the fake pretexts of a give-to-get gospel. they're digital rock stars who command the eye of presidential applicants and media moguls. via make-believe miracles, city legends, counterfeit Christs, and twisted theological reasoning, they peddle an occult model of metaphysics that keeps to shipwreck the religion of hundreds of thousands round the globe:
“God can't do whatever during this earthly realm until we provide Him permission.”
“Keep announcing it—‘I have equality with God’—talk your self into it.”
“Being bad is a sin.”
“The Jews weren't rejecting Jesus as Messiah; it used to be Jesus who used to be refusing to be the Messiah to the Jews!”
“You create your personal international a similar method God creates His. He speaks, and issues ensue; you converse, they usually happen.”
Christianity in problem: twenty first Century exposes darkness to mild, pointing us again to a Christianity headquartered in Christ.
From the Preface:
“Having misplaced the power to imagine biblically, postmodern Christians are being remodeled from cultural switch brokers and initiators into cultural conformists and imitators. popular culture beckons, and postmodern Christians have taken the bait. accordingly, the biblical version of religion has given approach to an more and more strange array of fads and formulas.”
