After I preached, an Arminian promotes his man-centered heresies – the acceptance Gospel, & the false deity of ‘me, myself, and I: Semper Reformanda!
After distributing the tracts I preached thru the Law (all
Ten Commandments), the Gospel, and then from the Text for today (which was Hebrews
4:14-16). During the Q&A the man seen in the beginning clip inserted his
man-made man-centered heresies (a free-will acceptance Gospel that alleges man
can save himself by “accepting Jesus”).
Interestingly he was wearing a “Route 66” shirt, while sporting a “Route 66” Tattoo. Though there’s nothing sinful about Route 66, but one would have to wonder if perhaps his Route 66’ism was an idol in his life (or not). And my preaching on the Law covered idolatry.
Admittedly I erred by allowing this dialog (or argument) to go on as long as it did, But I’d rather fall on my sword while trying, than never err while sitting in a pew. Nonetheless, this heresy must be publicly refuted, when it’s publicly introduced into my sermon. That is the risk of opening up for a Q&A. Albeit sometimes wonderful things happen, but many hecklers can still arise even when there is no Q&A.
Then one woman asked a question about baptism, while another fellow shared how he was disgruntled with attending churches. We later had a meaningful ‘one on one’ by my vehicle. I referred him to a local church, and advised that if that does not work, then at least try a home Bible study.
“I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry” (2nd Timothy 4:1-4).
“If the professed convert distinctly and deliberately declares that he knows the Lord’s will but does not mean to attend to it, you are not to pamper his presumption, but it is your duty to assure him that he is not saved. Do not suppose that the Gospel is magnified or God glorified by going to the worldlings and telling them that they may be saved at this moment by simply accepting Christ as their Savior, while they are wedded to their idols, and their hearts are still in love with sin. If I do so I tell them a lie, pervert the Gospel, insult Christ, and turn the grace of God into lasciviousness.” – Charles Spurgeon
