DON’T WARN, JUST PRAY FOR THEM?
I have been told by several people on Facebook and physically that I don’t need to rebuke, warn, or speak against the evil and heresies of false and erring ministers, that what we just need to do is to pray for them. Such notion is not only un-biblical but also misleading itself.
To start with, when I preach here against the evil of worldly and false preachers, how they are misleading many souls to hell and yet they are being celebrated, some people say it’s better to go and meet them personally than to publish their errors online. My response is that: 1, I am not preaching against their evil here just because of them, but to warn many people who are being misled by them. 2, Also to warn upcoming ministers not to follow their paths because they have missed it already and some are even agents of Satan.
At the same time I pray for them to repent and return to their first love for God, but that does not stop my responsibilities of warning people against their heresies, many souls are being mislead to hell everyday by these false and satanic ministers, and it’s the responsibility children of God to keep quite? I think not.
As Christianity of today and many churches are getting worst everyday, we need to arise, pray, preach, warn the misled they have been deceived and call them to true salvation, warn the few remnants not to join the misled generation but stay on the old path till the end, and warn the false and satanic preaching agents of the imminent judgment of God if they refuse to repent.
We cannot change things without correcting or challenging, not even inside or outside the church. When people, including ministers or churches, are making private mistake, you correct them privately and when they are making public mistake, you correct them publicly. Why did Apostle Paul wrote the whole church of Galatians and others about the error of Apostle Peter?
When these prosperity, false and satanic preachers are destroying the old time faith, the pillars of Christianity and watering down all the core values of holiness and righteousness, leading millions to hell, should we just keep quiet and pray for them without contending, correcting and challenging them? Until they mislead our children and converts before we stand up?
“Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. 4 For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.” Jude 3, 4
