Is Religious Synchretism Leading to a One World Religion
Spiritual deception is quickly setting the stage for a one-world religion and a one-world leader. Jesus Himself warned us that "many will come in My name saying 'I am the Christ' and will deceive many." The spiritual deception that Jesus warned about is here and many are being taken spiritual prisoners. Jesus tells us in Mathew 7:13-23 this spiritual deception will be sign that we are in the last days. Jesus tells us that false teachers will look like Christians, and talk like Christians but they will be wolves in sheep's clothing.
Brannon will take us to an abundance of Scripture so we can clearly understand why so many people, including self-professed Christians, are not seeing the spiritual deception that is all around us. How can we recognize spiritual deception so we can protect ourselves as well as friends and family? How will the last days deception be disguised? How do we recognize a false teacher, prophet, or anti-Christ? Are Christians to expose false teachers publically or not? What is Biblical truth? What are six characteristics of a false teacher?
What does spiritual nationalism look like? When Christians put the state, public policy, the economy, and politics and ecumenicalism above obedience to the Bible and the exclusivity of Jesus Christ you get patriotic ecumenicalism. Brannon draws on history to reveal that what has happen before what can happen in America. The "German Christians" betrayed the Gospel of Jesus Christ for unity, materialism, national pride, and the return of stability and promise of the good life. The "Germany Christians" mocked Dietrich Bonheoffer and Martin Niemoller for starting the "Confessing Church" to oppose paganism and ecumenicalism. The "Germany Christians" became so immersed in spiritual deception that they merged their religious denominations under the Reich Bishop that was hand-picked by Hitler.
Many self-described Christians will knowingly, or unknowingly, compromise the Gospel of Jesus Christ in favor of ecumenicalism and pagan spirituality if it will help save America, their freedoms, and their comfortable life-style. Our decision is whether we will chose to follow the last days deception or Biblical truth even in the face of ridicule by self-professed Christians.
