  1. I want to be gracious; I’m sure many of the people here are simply mislead. I have less patience for the leadership. Heresy or a different religion? Either way, it’s bad.

  2. I’ve been reading Church history and learning all about all the different heresies. I think we have seen a really serious heresy in the last fifty or so years which seems to have affected churches right across the spectrum – from the Roman Catholics to the most fundamentalist evangelicals. Many think they are saved because they experience a “high” when they go to church and partake in wild worship, complete with drums, microphones and general noise. What are we supposed to do about this? I find it discouraging. Yet we know that God’s Kingdom is continually advancing (Isaiah 9:6-7), so this is not going to last forever. We just need to know what to do now.
