Is it any wonder why these so-called Christians are such heretics? Progressive Christians is an oxymoron.

They admit that they have to be a heretic in order to become one of their groups.

It just tells you that Bible Prophecy is true, The Holy Bible says: "But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction" 2 PETER 2:1-3

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." 2 TIMOTHY 4:3-5

"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils." 1 TIMOTHY 4:1

Revelation 13:11

11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth;
and he had two horns like a lamb,
and he spake as a dragon.

It used to be that Progressive Christianity meant taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the Earth.

Now it means using the government to coerce people by threat of force to give money to the government for “redistribution” and “social justice”.

NOWHERE in the Old or New Testament is ANYTHING like that taught!!!

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) became a "Full Communion Partner" of the United Church of Christ in 1997 with the adoption of the "Formula of Agreement" with various Reformed denominations.

Therefore:



Lutheran (EL C S*A) Ping!

* as of August 19, AD 2009, a liberal protestant SECT, not part of the holy, catholic and apostolic CHURCH.

Alleluia! Christ is Risen!

That’s what I thought too?

Christians are followers of Jesus Christ. How can they call themselves Christians?

Aye.

And BHØ was a keynote speaker at the denomination's national assembly in 2005...had the delegates mesmerized.

His book at Amazon: Saving Jesus from the Church: How to Stop Worshiping Christ and Start Following Jesus

Apparently a member of the social justice, socialist, atheist, Jesus was a great teacher, let's hijack the churches because they have the money and the organization and the do-gooders school of theology/philosophy/politics.

Progressive Christian, liberation theology, Communism, and when the illusion is gone, Fascism. It’s all a mishmashed rehash of Marxist crap, even when they slander God with it. Better to understand simple commands, like don’t steal, even when you use the government to do it. Don’t envy, even when you use class warfare, racial divisions, and political causes that are based on hate and utilitarian values.

No thanks. I'd probably get so mad, I'd end up doing a big time rebuking. "You brood of vipers! You are like whitewashed sepulchurs, appearing clean on the outside but full of dead men's bones."

“How can they call themselves Christians?”

Only with their lips.

Christ is all things:
Faith, Hope and Love.
Knowledge, Wisdom and Understanding.

He is also our government, a heavenly government, as in heaven so on earth, through his church.

The carnal “churches” a la “United Church of Christ”, are agents of the Serpent.

I was raised in the “United Church of Christ”. They were members of the NCC/WCC and are responsible for more deaths in Africa and elsewhere than most will accept. They're funding of socialist/communist insurrection movements in Africa, over the last few decades, to depose a dictatorship, with the only purpose of establishing another dictatorship, is ripe for judgment.

Socialism, whether right or left, is the gospel taught in most denominations today.

Church for me is “were two or three are gathered together” in Christ's name.

Mystery Babylon, come out of her.

Going to a leftist church is like attending a political rally or a DNC funeral. Every economic and social Marxist slogan is the “gospel.”

Progressive Christians from Seattle will burn in Hell just fine, once they dry out.
