What is a Liberal?

In Christianity, oftentimes, too much stock is put in what people claim to believe. In times past, Liberals were people who denied the Deity of Christ, the Virgin Birth, etc., but not anymore. Now we have Liberals who claim to be quite evangelically orthodox, yet laugh at the idea Jesus Christ has a problem with sexual immorality, which is the equivalent of denying Him to His face. Or the evangelical who claims to be believe everything straight down the line AND, also, in self-contradiction, believes in Universal Reconciliation.

 

So, one of the big issues today is a spiritual naivety which cannot grasp that Liberals are NOT Christians, and when people claim to believe right, but their wrong beliefs nullify their right beliefs, it doesn’t make them Christian, they are still Liberals.

 

For example, if a man tells me he believes Jesus is the Son of God and the only way to God, and yet also believes the sexually immoral will also inherit the Kingdom of God, then his claim is false, he is lying.

 

So, where is your “unity” now? Is unity in what people claim, or in what they actually are?

    Universal Reconciliation deletes much scripture, including Revelation chapter 20, and therefore this warning is appropriate for such:

    “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book” (Revelation 22:18-19)

    It’s true that many who go astray never were justified by faith, but it is also true that what God has given, He also has the right to take away, as in taking away ones name from the Book of Life.

    It is false to present eternal security as totally unconditional, when scripture plainly reinforces the necessity of perseverance of faith, enduring, abiding, and remaining in Christ.

    “Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.” (Romans 11:22)

    I wasn’t using the word “delete” in the literal sense (obviously) but in the sense of false interpretation which renders the plain meaning void, which is the same as literally deleting the text, and all who do so will have their name deleted from the Book of Life.

    There’s nothing mysterious about the relevant Greek text on this issue: Forever and ever (Eis Aion Aion) is used in reference to the duration of the life of God, of the Lord Jesus, and His Kingdom and also of the Lake of Fire and the torment therein.
