Apostasy is rising in the body of Christ. Indeed, wheat and the tares are growing up together and it’s becoming more apparent which are which. As I’ve said several times over the past few years, the great falling away is underway.
The latest denomination to fall at Jezebel’s hand is the Dutch Reformed Church. In a landmark vote, the church has decided to recognize same-sex relationships. Jesus warned the church not to tolerate the spirit of Jezebel, which teaches and seduces God’s servants to commit sexual immorality and engage in idolatry (Rev. 2:20).
The Dutch Reformed Church didn’t even put up much of a fight against the depths of Satan (see Rev. 2:24). Sixty-four percent of the church voted in favor of this strong delusion, which also opens the door for ordaining gay ministers without the call to celibacy.
“It is historical because with this decision we actually are at a point where there can be no doubt that the Dutch Reformed Church is serious about human dignity,” Dutch Reformed Church moderator Nelis Janse vanRensburg said. “And you know that we are living in this country where we have so many problems with the dignity of people.”
The Dutch Reformed Church is a South African denomination that traces its beginnings to the Reformed tradition of the first white settlers who came to South Africa from the Netherlands in the mid-17th century, according to Encyclopedia Britannica. The church claims nearly 1.3 million members in more than 1,200 congregations.
This sad trend is not new. In 2014, four denominations in less than a week defied God’s Word. I expect more denominations to fall by the wayside, or break off from their mainline denominations as they embrace doctrines of demons that encourage them to start their own sects of postmodern Christianity that is really not Christianity at all.
Postmodern, or progressive Christianity has a strong focus on social justice and environmentalism. Progressive Christianity focuses on concepts like “collective salvation”—where entire cultures and societies, rather than just individuals with faith in Christ, are redeemed—and bends toward a Marxist economic philosophy. And Progressive Christianity does not subscribe to the biblical doctrine of the inerrancy of Scripture.
