John Huss rebukes Joel Osteen’s “Best Life Now” teachings centuries in advance

“To witness to God’s Truth is more important than life.”

The church advances by the blood of the martyrs, not by the comfortable lifestyles of the seeker sensistive, “best life now,” disciples.

Wolves Among You

John Piper notes how False Teachers come across as “nice guys.”

The American church is in crisis.

Employing smooth speech, flattery, and deceitful scheming, wolves in sheep’s clothing—enabled by hired hands posing as pastors and multitudes with itching ears—have infiltrated the flock en masse and seized control of much of the church’s doctrines, leadership, and pulpits.


The Seeker Friendly Movement

1. The seeker friendly movement says the church is for believers and unbelievers alike.  But the biblical pattern excludes unbelievers:

“And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.” (Acts 2:42-47)
