Hello and welcome to the podcast!
-Today we begin by discussing how to witness to loved ones that have fallen in to a false gospel. How do we witness to our loved ones that are neck deep in the word of faith, new age, or prosperity gospel?
-I bring up how I have family members that are not Christian and family members that are caught up in the false gospel. I feel as if we need to approach these two camps the same exact way.
-How do we run and try to save them before they jump off the cliff and are unable to be brought out of the deception? Has God hardened their hearts already?
-Remember how Christ was patient with us. He is still patient! I went 25 years sinning against Jesus Christ without repenting for my wicked ways. We should show this patience with our loved ones, neighbors, and strangers!
-The mega church I used to attend sent an email about their baptism weekend…… it is titled, “WATER WEEKEND” because they are having a water party for the kids as well. BLASPHEMY!
-These discussions tie directly in to the study we do in 1 John. The verses we go over are posted below:
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love. By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has seen God at any time; if we love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world. – 1 John 4:7-14
