There is much written about changes taking place in the local church. Few believers understand that the changes have been well planned, and the methods being used to change the mind of the congregation is the same method that has been used to move people in governments, institutions and corporations. It is not biblical. Believer beware. In use is Hegelian Dialectic. From German philosopher George Hegel, this method of moving groups of people into new thinking is not new at all, but it IS new to the church. Hence, the church growth movement.
Because most of us want our information in a snip-it, this will be a challenge for you to investigate. Below you will find links and articles that will clarify what might be going on for you in your church or christian organization.
Most people have a sense that something is going on in their church that is different in worship, focus and general atmosphere, but they cannot put their finger on just what it is. The following links and articles can give you a clearer picture, and will clarify how dangerous this process is to the purity of the body and of God’s Holy word.
Christ is the source of the church. He said to Peter after Peter said, “You are the Christ, the son of the living God,” that He would build His church on that rock; the rock of the truth of who Yeshua is; the Messiah.
Jesus said Himself, “If I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto myself.” God does not need the schemes of man, his ways are not our ways.
Dr. Robert Klenck summarizes it in his report on “The 21st Century Church:”
“…in this movement, it is imperative that unbelievers are brought into the church; otherwise, the process of continual change cannot begin. There must be an antithesis (unbelievers) present to oppose the thesis (believers), in order to move towards consensus.(compromise), and move the believers away from their moral absolutism (resistance to change). If all members of the church stand firm on the Word of God, and it’s final authority in all doctrine and tradition, then the church cannot and will not change. This is common faith. Soon, we will see why these “change agents” are pushing so hard for change to occur in the church.”
