Forms of False Christianity: Part 11 – What is True Christianity?

Kate/ June 17, 2018/ Counterfeit Christianity, The Church, Uncategorized/ 0 comments

Jesus alone can save you from your sins. No works will earn you salvation. But following Christ comes with a cost. And He was saying to them all, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake, he

Forms of False Christianity: Part 9 – Judaized Christianity

Kate/ June 15, 2018/ Counterfeit Christianity, The Church, Uncategorized/ 0 comments

Judaized Christianity is Christianity that still wants to keep enforcing some of the old Jewish laws. Jesus came to fulfill the Law, and those seeking to live by the law must die. Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of

Forms of False Christianity: Part 8 – Religious Christianity

Kate/ June 14, 2018/ Counterfeit Christianity, The Church, Uncategorized/ 1 comments

Religious Christianity involves one or both of the following: Connection with God is sought through elemental things (sacraments, rituals, candles, vestments, chalices, icons) rather than through Christ, who lives in the heart. Everyone knows the rules, no one knows the Ruler. Everyone knows the system, and no one knows the Savior. Human effort is made toward achieving salvation or the

Forms of False Christianity: Part 6 – Fair Weather Christianity

Kate/ June 12, 2018/ Counterfeit Christianity, The Church, Uncategorized/ 0 comments

“Trying on” Jesus. If He makes your life “better” (i.e. more comfortable), then you’ll keep Him. Once the going gets rough, you try something else. And the one on whom seed was sown among the thorns, this is the man who hears the word, and the worry of the world and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful. –

Forms of False Christianity: Part 5 – Cultural Christianity

Kate/ June 11, 2018/ Counterfeit Christianity, The Church, Uncategorized/ 0 comments

Attending church, doing a few “good works” each week, being Republican, and/or calling yourself a “Christian” makes you a Christian. Or just living in Colorado Springs (“evangelical Mecca”) or even in America makes you a “Christian”. To sum it up, Cultural Christianity is adding Christianity on to your cultural identity. Cultural Christianity is also calling yourself Christian because of your

Forms of False Christianity: Part 3 – Prosperity Gospel

Kate/ June 9, 2018/ Counterfeit Christianity, The Church, Uncategorized/ 0 comments

Jesus died so you could get wealthy, healthy, famous, successful, etc. on earth. You need to “claim what is yours”. Your best life is on earth (rather than in heaven). Of course, this teaching tickles the ears of many, which amounts to more financial profit for the false prophets leveraging the prosperity gospel message. In my opinion, the new liberalism is basically

Forms of False Christianity: Part 2 – Licentious Christianity

Kate/ June 8, 2018/ Counterfeit Christianity, The Church, Uncategorized/ 0 comments

“Accepting Jesus” so that we can go on regularly, deliberately indulging in (“practicing“) a sinful lifestyle. What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase? May it never be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it? Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized

False Religion and False Spirituality

Kate/ May 25, 2018/ Counterfeit Christianity, Legalism, The Church, Uncategorized, Why Jesus Hates Religion/ 0 comments

Since I wrote the series “Why Jesus Hates Religion“, I’ve felt that I need to follow this up with a piece about true vs. false religion and true vs. false spirituality. From information I’ve absorbed online and observed/heard in person, I’ve been realizing that much of the “not religious but spiritual” crowd is promoting a false spirituality and poorly describing what bad
