Watch the video below and you will see liberalism at work in the Church. What you will witness, brethren, is “progressive” aka “social justice” Christianity, which is not true Christianity; it is a counterfeit. In his piece Mike Ratliff of Possessing the Treasure lays out what authentic Christianity should look like, according to what the Bible teaches. But if we examine the views held by a large number of “Millennials” we don’t find very many Bible believing Christians.

That means prayer and living in His Word. It is through this that we are transformed through the renewing of our minds (Romans 12:2). In this, we will be kept from straying into doctrine or conduct of which we will be ashamed at his coming. Think of what it will be like at his coming. What if it was today or tomorrow? Would you have the confidence in how you are abiding in him to not be ashamed at his coming? Wouldn’t it be far better to abide in him as a way of life and, therefore, have confidence because of a clear conscience? Continue reading
