But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, (1 Timothy 1:4)
In Ezra chapter 4 we see tactics of the enemies of the people of God which are designed to disrupt their work in carrying out God's directives to them, ie. the rebuilding of the temple. One of the tactics were the offer to become allies. "Then they came to Zerubbabel, and to the chief of the fathers, and said unto them, Let us build with you: for we seek your God, as ye do; and we do sacrifice unto him since the days of Esarhaddon king of Assur, which brought us up hither."
At this present time, we see the Church being seduced by the so-called "Social Justice Gospel". On the surface, it appears to be godly, when it actuality, it is not at all in agreement with the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is the world's attempt to "merge" ("Let us build with you: for we seek your God.") with the Church, for the purpose of disrupting the true work and pursuit of the true purposes and truth of God.
The tenets of the "Social Justice Gospel" and the Social Justice Movement which is front and center in society today, are in essence one in the same. While it is more comfortable to seek to find common ground with the world and win favor with them, James 4:4 says "You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God."
Galatians 1:8 states, "But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed."
Please take a moment to view, Social Justice Isn't Justice, a 5-minute video that masterfully exposes the "Social Justice Gospel" for what it is. Pass it on to others.
