Biblical Christianity vs Cultural Christianity

What you mean

vs

What they mean:

Seeking after holiness = Legalism

Exercising Discernment = Judging

False conversion = Carnal Christian

Tolerating sinful behavior = Christian Love

Following Christ’s commands = Phariseeism

Exposing false prophets = Touching God’s anointed

Not following false prophets = You’re not spiritual enough

Tolerating lies, errors, deception, and heresy = Christian Unity

Hell = God would never send anyone to Hell, he is a god of love

God’s judgment and wrath = Not the god I serve, he is a god of love

Friendship with the world = Gotta be like them to witness to them

Belief in the final authority of Scripture = Intolerant fundamentalist

Use of vulgarities and coarse language, being obscene and offensive = Hip and relevant; showing the world how real we are and that we can have fun.

~~~~~

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes And clever in their own sight! – Isaiah 5:20-21
