The Danger of Compromise: Pantheism

A Very Real Danger

Of all the many dangers facing the church in the world, one of the most dangerous is the call to compromise. The reason this call is so dangerous is because of its subtlety. Compromise does not require turning away from all of God’s Word or even a majority, only to ignore certain portions or aspects.

In this article we will examine the compromise of pantheism. This term describes the acceptance of multiple theological truths and holding them as equal in value.

Real 'Feel Good' Christianity

‘Feeling’ Good

The term “feel good Christianity” is commonly used to describe church groups or organizations which tend to focus upon aspects of Christian doctrine which feel “good.” By feeling “good” we mean the aspects of Christianity which are solely positive, such as: the love of God, the mercy of God, fellowship and togetherness in the body of Christ, etc. While these things are important and true blessings, a focus on these things alone leaves out many aspects of the “whole purpose of God” (Acts 20:27, NASU).

Modern Prophecy?

A Claim of Authority

There are many modern religious groups who claim their authority for religious practices by the revelation of prophecy in the modern era. This authority takes on varied forms, from “latter day” gospels, to inspired “prophets” or leaders, to “speaking in tongues.”

The Power of Myth

Myth and Legend

Throughout the ages many legends and myths have been formed to explain subjects ranging from the histories of peoples to an attempt to explain natural phenomena within the created world. Many of these legends and myths were not even authored with the intention of being regarded seriously, but in time some came to be believed to such a degree that pagan worship of false deities arose.

The Word of God Will Endure

Where is the Word?

There are times when, looking out into modern society and the world at large, one wonders how so many people choose to reject the Word of God. In the span of a few generations, moral standings based upon Biblical principles have changed for the worst. One might even wonder where the Word has gone in the world at all.
