By Modernist and Cultural Apostasy I mean, certain practices, policies and doctrines that have been brought into the church by modernist thinking. By modernist, I mean someone who is assuming to be theologically relevant by preference of thoughts and actions rather than bound by the historical facts of orthodoxy in faith and practice. Cultural Christianity (so-called) is also an attempt to interpret practices and thoughts as related to our times and our culture rather than bound by the historical context of Scripture and orthodoxy. By orthodoxy I mean the historical faith of the “early church fathers” and the early Councils (The Seven Councils) to determine common faith and practice. To ignore and avoid Scripture for context in faith and practice is apostasy.
We don’t give away what we have because others don’t want what we have, or to be what they prefer rather than what we prefer and believe. If we have dug it up, wrestled with it, studied it and come to faith about it… that’s what we believe regardless of what others believe. We must be quickly open to learning and be slowly open to leaving what we know.
“Do not complain about me to one another. No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the prophets, ‘And they will all be taught by God.’ Everyone who hears and learns from the Father comes to me. (Not that anyone has seen the Father except the one who is from God—he has seen the Father.) I tell you the solemn truth, the one who believes has eternal life.” Jesus
