Tickle the Ear Doctrines or Gospel of Truth - You Decide

By Bill Wilson

The G-20 nations soon will meet in London with various proposals to fix the world economy. You can count on more globalization, more one world order drivel. The headlines will be talking about a worldwide redistribution of wealth-mainly from America-to fight the phantom of global warming; they will mention replacing the dollar as the standard reserve currency because it is to blame for the weakening world economy; they will point out that the nations believe more, not less government is needed to fix the worldwide recession; and more government intervention means more taxes and more nationalization of private enterprise. This crisis these leaders created will be used to advance the one world order.

Christians, in particular, will be distressed by the news coming from this summit. The global fixes that will be proposed by these so-called smartest men and women in the world will deny the existence of God, will call on man's own devices to remedy the problems their greed and elitist politics created, and their agenda will sprint away from the moral cultural issues. These countries will continue to promote homosexuality and abortion as well as separation of church and state. Spawning from this summit, whether it is reported or not, will be a new assault on individual liberty, on traditional family values, and most ardently and viciously, a stepped up attack on anyone who would oppose their genius.

The gathering of all these secular humanist-driven leaders could very well result in the unleashing of prejudice against Jews and Christians that hasn't been seen since the Crucifixion of Christ and the Roman persecution of Jews in the latter first century. IF you stand for God's brand of liberty, you will be faced with challenges that you have not seen in your generation. The body of Christ here on earth will soon be forced by events to decide what it is going to be. Those who stand on the doctrines of men will not be able to withstand the onslaught of what is about to occur. Kumbya Christianity, the emergent church, seeker sensitive, name it-claim it, personal prophetic indulgence all will be sorely put to the test.

God's kingdom people must understand that it is the Word of God, the gospel of truth, that must be spread. The "tickle the ear" doctrines of men must be laid aside in order to spread the gospel. Jesus said in Matthew 24:35,
"Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away."
He commanded us in Mark 16:15,
"Go you into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."
The disciples were under harsh Roman persecution, yet the church in Acts arose and through boldness of preaching the gospel - not doctrines of men - thousands came to Christ and the world was changed. Philippians 4:13,
"I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me."
Do you believe it?
