New Poll Finds Evangelicals’ Favorite Heresies

Most American evangelicals hold views condemned as heretical by some of the most important councils of the early church.

A survey released today by LifeWay Research for Ligonier Ministries “reveals a significant level of theological confusion,” said Stephen Nichols, Ligonier’s chief academic officer. Many evangelicals do not have orthodox views about either God or humans, especially on questions of salvation and the Holy Spirit, he said.

Evangelicals did score high on several points. Nearly all believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead (96%), and that salvation is found through Jesus alone (92%). Strong majorities said that God is sovereign over all people (89%) and that the Bible is the Word of God (88%).

And in some cases the problem seems to be uncertainty rather than heresy. For example, only 6 percent of evangelicals think the Book of Mormon is a revelation from God, but an additional ...

the sheep will indeed here the voice of the shepherd. "come and follow me".

rejoice, for the Lord is good.

He says to come boldly to the throne of grace.

Shane, great advice.

How do we authenticate the work of the Spirit as opposed to the work of the flesh or the darkness? let scripture be our guide.

It is good to give praises to our Heavenly Father and have our eyes rested firmly on Christ. Where there is light the darkness disappears. This is the Kingdom of God, thy Kingdom come, as the gospel is received, darkness is pushed out.

Josh, I so appreciate that, thank you so much!

Got it downloaded all right, it's a PDF file, so I can read it any time, and I'm sure it will help some in getting together a prayer strategy, even though I'm not much good at prayers.

Aye, Aye, brother Michael.

If the early church so desperately needed the power of the Holy Ghost, how much more do we need HIM today, in our efforts to evangelise the world amidst the corruptness, vileness, rottenness, and ungodliness of the world around us?

The remnant will never make any headway, until it acknowledges total dependence on God, and prays accordingly. Then we can say "Glory to God" instead of praising our programs and events.

Aye aye brother,

May all saints everywhere be revived by the coming of the Holy Ghost, filled anew, and committed anew to the service of our Lord Jesus Christ, joyfully worshipping him who shall see of the travail of his soul and be satisfied. He is worthy of worship for who he is, and not because he gives gifts to men, salvation even. He is the Great Creator and we must needs exalt him among men, unafraid and undeterred.

Aye aye brother,

There are plenty like Diotrephes around today, who would benefit from seeing a true revival, where God is everywhere, and there is nowhere to hide. I am so grateful that the brother leading our Bible Study group is one of the rare ones who exalts the Lord and tells the man where he's at, i.e. a rebel against God.

In the Revival Hymn, Leonard Ravenhill tells it like it is, that our Lord Jesus was rejected out of hand by most and sundry, and should we not expect the same? Or do we compromise, lest we get upset by contradictions of sinners and ignorant saints?

The narrow road to life is both difficult and dangerous, but we need have no fear, for the Lord goes with us, every step of the way, and sometimes carries us, as "Footprints in the Sand" demonstrates.

May all saints everywhere be revived by the coming of the Holy Ghost, filled anew, and committed anew to the service of our Lord Jesus Christ, joyfully worshipping him who shall see of the travail of his soul and be satisfied. He is worthy of worship for who he is, and not because he gives gifts to men, salvation even. He is the Great Creator and we must needs exalt him among men, unafraid and undeterred.

Beloved Fellow Bondslave John UK Wales
I might not have a perfect or complete answer to that

But here goes:
They wickedly imagine that in trying to stamp out a real experiencial faith _ which is so intimately interrelated to a child of God JOYFULLY serving the Lord Jesus Christ (not money and all the riches and luxuries etc. of this life) _ these "lords of religion" self-righteously imagine they (not the child of God set afire with love for Jesus Christ) are serving God

John 16:2 kjv
They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.

and we have example of this

3 John 9,10 kjv
9 I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.
10 Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he doeth, prating against us with malicious words: and not content therewith, neither doth he himself receive the brethren, and forbiddeth them that would, and casteth them out of the church.

Much to learn and grow up into in all that Jesus saved us to be and to have in our faith.

Yes! To all your post, Saint Michael.

I am building myself up to begin praying for revival again, which I used to do years ago, until the same thing happened which you mentioned above.

Why must the churches try to stamp out the good things that are happening in the lives of the people of God?

Maybe it is because like you said, there is a determination to go down into apostasy, and any working of God the Holy Ghost might put a stop to that downgrade.

Maybe it is because many dear Christians were never told that when they are weak, they are strong. And when they are poor, they are rich. And when they die to the world, they live a far better life, full of joy, peace and love. And when they store up treasures in heaven, they make do without on earth. Things like that.

imho Revival will restore the Great Commission to the hearts of God's people or having the Great Commission powerfully alive in our faith and lives will lead us to Revival

Oops! I think I in talking about the Great Commission, church-wide intercessory prayer meetings where the sins and neglects of God's people are confessed and repented of, of churches that actually go out into the communities they are in to wins souls, HOLINESS!, I think am talking about things modern day churches on the road to Apostasy think are heretical

and try to stamp out in the lives of the children of God, even while they give lip service to them

again imho

For the moment if we don't have a good church locally, we ought to consider and seek for personal evangelism in getting people saved and giving them a Bible _ Then the Holy Ghost can take them and teach them from God's word and help them to grow and live for Christ even if all the apostates around them are on their way to hell

You have previously posted about the general deadness and lack of prayer in especially Calvinist churches, so wondered about your own church and prayer life? How are you 'different' or are you just part of the problem
If any church, where God's people worship the Living God, and love, serve and obey the Lord Jesus Christ, it matters little to me whether it be a fundamentalist Baptist Church or Reformed Baptist Church, or a Calvinistic Church, or whatever. If God is being glorified in his people, I rejoice with them, even if I differ on secondary issues which do not affect salvation.

In my own county, churches are still closing down because God has written ICHABOD over the notice board outside the church building. This is very sad, and brings no joy to me, but it is a plain fact.

Some churches, as you mentioned, seek to substitute entertainment for the true joy of the Lord, and these are continuing, but without the presence of God, it's a mere form, a sham.

I believe revival, even personal revival, could restore the whole heart of Christianity to an individual or church.

Just today, I think I have got what Paul meant when he said, "I am crucified with Christ." What thinkest thou?

Ravenhill quotes:'He especially deplored the weakness of the praying of most local churches. He felt the strongest meeting of the church should be the church prayer meeting, but said that it was generally the weakest, if it even existed at all."

"If weak in prayer, we are weak everywhere."

"Entertainment is the devil's substitute for joy, and sports is her sister"

Entertainment is the devil's substitute for Joy, the less joy of the Lord you have the more entertainment you need."

Brother Saint Michael, New York,

I am digging around for more videos or sermons by Leonard Ravenhill. I always thought he was an American, having heard him back in the 80's on Trans World Radio Monte Carlo, but it turns out he is English, who moved to America in the 50's and went to his eternal rest in 1994, buried in Texas.
Thus far, I have The Revival Hymn, and Facts of Revival, and am experiencing somewhat of a shakeup. The chief purpose of a man on earth is to bring glory to God through his life, and that can only happened if the man is fully crucified, dead, buried, resurrected with Christ, and fully committed to loving, serving, worshipping and obeying the Lord, that the Lord may have the glory through him.

For me much learning and groaning (mourning) to do in interpersonal correspondance with others, especially sometimes sadly too often with other believers
You might also like some of the comments, I didn't agree with them all but was neverthelessed blessed, edified, encouraged and reproved by many of them, in a [URL=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUEa9gOJHUc]]]Question & Answer[/URL] with Dr. R.C. Sproul JUNIOR
Thank you Saint Michael.

I am sure the Lord will use the [URL=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERgIOM5Bm2A]]]REVIVAL HYMN[/URL] to awaken us that have dozed off. I learnt a lot from Bro Reidhead's contribution about how humanism is crept into the church and into the preaching of the gospel. There is so much in this compilation that I watch it daily.

I wish I knew how to download it, so that I can make some DVD's to give out to people, saints and sinners alike. We all need to understand what the cross really means.

I'll have to bookmark the link, and see it when I've time.
