Christians want to be careful to avoid Meditation other than on the Word of God

Are you a Child of God, a Christian, and have considered Meditation, outside of reading and contemplating the Word of God from Holy Scripture?

Rick Warren’s Daniel Plan Accelerates – Tells Followers to Practice 4-7-8 Hinduistic Meditation A recent article online from Lighthouse Trails Research.com website shares how easy it is for a Christian to walk astray, by simply practicing Hindu breathing techniques used in meditation.  I have not done research about this website, but a Christian friend of mine of whom I have great respect for his Doctrine and Faith shared this article on Facebook, and it clearly shows the way of today’s modern church and the dangerous path they are leading, amongst many churches and denominations, in Seeker Sensitive and New Age practices.  See the story here:

Read 2 Thessalonians 2  here:

The Man of Lawlessness

2 Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers and sisters, not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord has already come. Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness[a] is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.

Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

2 Thessalonians 2 (New International Version)

I hope that the Man of Lawlessness described in 2nd Thess 2 was helpful.

Why Are There So Many Denominations? – Sermon – August 18 2013

Why Are There So Many Denominations ? – (Example: ELCA and LCMS Differences ) – Sermon – August 18 2013

Ever wondered, why there are so many denominations in the world, so many divisions in the visible church of Christ on earth?  Shouldn’t we all just be one?  Can’t we all just agree?  Can any one denomination be right?  What should be our attitude toward people in other denominations?

What does God say to us about this in His Word?  Are we lowly, meek, enduring each other patiently with love in Christ?  If the basis for true unity in the church, according to Jesus Christ, is that we are all in agreement on the truth of God’s Word as it appears in the Bible, what is the trouble, that causes all the division amongst churches today?

Do any of the churches today, flatly deny the teachings of scripture and say God’s Word is in error?   What is the Historical Criticism approach to teaching the Bible, and how does it lead churches astray, and against the word of God, and therefore, against God?

Listen for these questions and answers about Why Are There So Many Denominations ? – (Example: ELCA and LCMS Differences ), below in the 1-part Video , or the 1-part Audio MP3 Sermon below the Video. 

Scriptures below from the church bulletin used in the Sermon:

Psalm 63: 3-11,  Deuteronomy 13: 1-5,  Acts 20: 24-35,  Matthew 7: 15-23

Keywords: the Bible is the inerrant word of God, Historical Criticism, false prophets, wolves , judging others, judging righteously, wolfs in sheeps clothing, ELCA ,  sex outside of marriage, homosexuality, gay marriage, gay pastors and priests, abortion, liberal seminaries, false teachers, judging others, righteous judging, judging rightly , leading people astray, error in scripture, infallible words of scripture, seeker sensitive sermons, doctrine, God’s inerrant word, 2 Timothy : 4    In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.

Psalm 75

‘1 We praise you, God, we praise you, for your Name is near;
people tell of your wonderful deeds.

2 You say, “I choose the appointed time;
it is I who judge with equity.

3 When the earth and all its people quake,
it is I who hold its pillars firm.[b]

4 To the arrogant I say, ‘Boast no more,’
and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horns.[c]

5 Do not lift your horns against heaven;
do not speak so defiantly.’”

6 No one from the east or the west
or from the desert can exalt themselves.

7 It is God who judges:
He brings one down, he exalts another.

8 In the hand of the Lord is a cup
full of foaming wine mixed with spices;
he pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth
drink it down to its very dregs.

9 As for me, I will declare this forever;
I will sing praise to the God of Jacob,

10 who says, “I will cut off the horns of all the wicked,
but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.”’

Should We Still Preach Fire and Brimstone – Sermon – December 05 2010

Should We Still Preach Fire and Brimstone ? – Sermon – December 05 2010

After reading Matthew 3: 1-10, do you think after learning about the purpose John the Baptist served announcing Christ’s coming, do you think we still need fire and brimstone preaching like this in church?  Do we still need to hear about the wrath of God, His righteous anger, His vengeance, His destructive power? Or is this a thing of the past?  Do we simply need messages only about love, joy, peace, hope and such things?   Do we need to keep God’s wrath and vengeance clearly on the radar scope of our faith?  Why do you think preachers, rarely preach like John anymore?  Is God any different in the New Testament, from how he was in the Old Testament, aside from Jesus Christ?  Why do the Seeker Sensitive churchs of today avoid preaching about God’s wrath?
