A side by side comparison of the sin and salvation teachings of Charles R. (Chuck) Swindoll and scripture reveals inconsistenies. Charles R. (Chuck) Swindoll hosts "Insights For Living" on the Moody Broadcasting Network and is an alumnus of Dallas Theological Seminary.
Like those who reinvent history to suit their own agendas, Dr. Charles R. (Chuck) Swindoll has rewritten Reformation history. Does Swindoll insist that "the faith that justifies is a vital and living faith that yields the fruit of works" as did Luther? No he does not, rather, Chuck Swindoll teaches the opposite and this he does under the banner of restoring Reformation doctrine! How is this anything other than historical revisionism?
In his magnum opus, The Grace Awakening, Chuck Swindoll presents himself as taking up "the torch of freedom" as brandished by protestant Reformers such as Martin Luther. In this he leads his readers to believe that by following him and his teaching in The Grace Awakening that they are being true to historical Reformation teaching, but is this actually the case?
Aware of human propensities to deception, Paul confessed, “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ” (II Cor. 11:3).
A side by side comparison of the sin and salvation teachings of Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer and scripture reveals inconsistenies. Dr. Lutzer hosts "Running To Win" on the Moody Broadcasting Network and is an alumnus of Dallas Theological Seminary. Dr. Lutzer is also senior pastor of Moody Memorial Church in Chicago.
"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish..." Many eternal security/once saved always saved teachers quote Jesus in this passage as if He had said, “They shall never perish whether they follow me or not.”
Conservative pastors such as Anthony T. Evans or Charles R. Swindoll would never knowingly speak a word against God’s law or encourage the immorality it seeks prevent, yet they unwittingly oppose what God promotes.
Moody Press boasts of being "The Name You Can Trust." In
this, Moody proposes to Christians that they are true to scripture
and to Christ. Masses the world over, however, who lean their eternal
hopes on much of the doctrine published by "The Name You Can
Trust" would be astonished to find that Moody Press should
not be trusted.
Without contrition true conversion and revival are impossible. We can have big churches and thousands at altar calls without contrition, but we cannot get one sin-laden soul to repent and genuinely be converted without contrition.
A side by side comparison of the sin and salvation teachings of Dr. Anthony T (Tony) Evans and scripture reveals inconsistenies. Dr. Evans hosts The Urban Alternative on the Moody Broadcasting Network is an alumnus of Dallas Theological Seminary and is promoted and published by Moody Press.
Preachers like Antony T. (Tony) Evans may appear to stand for truth and the gospel, but if their teaching on salvation by grace allows a professing Christian to continue in willful rebellion against God’s moral law without fear(like that of Dallas Theological Seminary), they destroy with one hand what they attempt to build with the other.
Errant dogmas always creep around the Christian church. In fact, Revelation chapter two records a warning from Jesus against dangerous doctrines that led His people astray. In the contemporary church the "carnal Christian," a sin-friendly doctrinal hybrid, is worming its way into Christian orthodoxy.
Popular contemporary, evangelical teachers tone-down, dress-up, disguise and Christianize Satan’s garden lie, “Ye shall not surely die,” stupefying the minds and blinding the eyes of men just as it did with our first parents.
