And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. (Genesis 1:4)

One of the fiercest spiritual attacks upon the Church of Jesus Christ, and in a wider sense, upon Western civilization itself has been launched through a religious philosophy called Gnosticism.

The Word ‘Gnosticism ‘comes from the Greek word for Knowledge, Gnosis. A Gnostic claims a higher, deeper or even esoteric knowledge as opposed to common knowledge. Thus the ‘secret teachings’ of the occult, or the so called ‘lost books of the Bible’ are gnostic concepts.

Gnosticism is actually the ever evolving religion of the Serpent in the garden of Eden, because it is an accusation against God the Creator, it promises secret knowledge, and because to tells men that through such knowledge they can become “as gods, knowing good and evil”. 

The early church was confronted with this philosophy…

Emergent Watch

Many (if not most) churches nowadays are using ‘worship’ music by known aberrant groups such as Bethel Music, Jesus Culture and Hillsong. Because the music is ‘popular’, the heretical roots of these groups are overlooked. Some have asserted that even if the group or church is heretical, ‘the music is still really good’.

Many apparently don’t realize (or don’t care) that the “Jesus” of these groups is NOT the Christ Jesus of the Bible, but a different “Jesus” – and that those churches factually preach a different Gospel and utilize a different “spirit” [see 2Cor. 11:4 & Gal. 1:6]

This author has pointed out the fact that sharing pulpits with, as well as using material by aberrant teachers/ groups can have the effect of legitimizing those same. The possibility of stumbling believers – inspiring them to  follow those aberrant people/ groups.

What has been completely overlooked is the fact that…

Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.Romans 1:30-31

The last half of Romans chapter 1 is a Divine analysis of the psychology of unbelief. Why godlessness?

The answer is that it is not ignorance or lack of evidence, but rather it is nothing less than a refusal to believe, and that in spite of both external(Creation, and it’s order), and internal (conscience, the universality of such intangibles as Justice and truth) evidence.

God has shown it unto them, we are told, but they did not like to retain God in their knowledge. Because of this, they make three moral and spiritual exchanges- as we looked at earlier.

They exchange the dignity of being made in the mage of God…

The first chapter of the book of Romans is a Divine analysis of the psychology of unbelief . Man is liable to God’s wrath against sin, because “They suppress the truth in unrighteousness”.

In other words, no one will be damned for what He doesn’t know, rather God’s judgment will be on the basis of knowledge spurned and suppressed. Every human being knows enough about God, creation, right and wrong, and judgment, to render themselves liable to the judgment of God. Jesus put it this way;

And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather han light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. John 3;20-21

A necessary outcome of this suppression of truth is that man in his rebellion against God’s revealed truth…

I am re-blogging this excellent post from Pastor Bill Randles:

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness…” (Romans 1:18)

The Gospel doesn’t begin with man and his need for salvation, it begins with God, His Glory and His wrath against sin.

The apostle tells us that the wrath of God; that is His ceaseless, active and fierce opposition to everything that is wrong, evil, perverse or false, is being revealed from heaven against man every single day.

The way God’s wrath is daily being revealed is in the steady degeneration of society, the “giving over”of society to ever grosser and more degrading forms of sin.The moral and social self-destruction that we are seeing today is an ominous manifestation of the Wrath of God. Abortion, homosexuality, the culture of death, and Nihilism are what God has given our generation over to, by allowing the natural restraints…
