There are a lot of parallels...

These people came to my church.

The latest flap around the "girl blogs" erupted.

1 John 4:1
Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.


I named names - along with the problems with doctrine.

So did a Godly woman on line.

2 Timothy 2:15-18 Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, who have wandered away from the truth..."


I went public

She went public

Acts 20:31 So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.


I said, "We should not be having a "relationship" with these people. They are false teachers and we shouldn't be having them in our pulpit."

She said, "We should have discernment and wisdom when visiting their blogs"

Matthew 7:15
"Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.


I was told "We just don't see what the big deal is."

She was told "We just don't see what the big deal is."

2 Timothy 4:3
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires,


Accusations were thrown around. There is a lot of heat.

My daughter is standing up (I'm a proud mom) for right doctrine. And we take a lot of heat for that.

Some of the heat is on line.

My daughter and I are taking heat in real life. A couple of women have lectured me about being "Spirit-filled."

Manda is having fingers pointed at her: "they're the ones that are trying to ruin the spring break trip."

For us, standing for truth and discernment has been very real-life and has cost us.

We've got a whole lot of Christians...

standing shoulder to shoulder with the "ones who call themselves Christian but who believe in another Jesus" accusing their spiritual siblings of "legalism".

We have Christians attempting to silence those to call them to discernment

There are three characteristics here (I'm speaking only on this issue, we all know that we have different characteristics at different times)

1) Stand up for truth - even if it's hard. Name names, just like Paul did.
2) Tell those that stand up to shut up.
3) Be silent, say nothing, be safe.
