Jesus Calling Endorsers

Bud Ahlheim put together a list of several high-profile Christians who’ve endorsed the best-selling book Jesus Calling. The thing that’s most troubling about any Christian who touts Jesus Calling is that doing so indicates a lack of spiritual discernment. The author, Sarah Young, claims that she hears directly from Jesus Christ and “with pen in hand” she wrote down the words of the “Jesus” she channels….and then she shared this nonsense in a book. Tim Challies cautioned: “Jesus Calling makes the boldest, gutsiest, and, to my mind, most arrogant claim of any book ever to be considered Christian.” Here’s Bud’s list – some of these folks may surprise you:

Calling Out False Teachers By Name – Right Response Ministries interviews Justin Peters.

There is a biblical mandate for calling out false teachers, or “naming names”:

You are aware that all who are in Asia turned away from me, among whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes. 2 Tim 1:15

…holding faith and a good conscience. By rejecting this, some have made shipwreck of their faith, among whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan that they may learn not to blaspheme. 1 Tim 1:19-20

For Demas, in love with this present world, has deserted me and gone to Thessalonica. Crescens has gone to Galatia, Titus to Dalmatia. 2 Tim 4:10

…and their talk will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, 2 Tim 2:17

Forsaking the right way, they have gone astray. They have followed the way of Balaam, the son of Beor, who loved gain from wrongdoing, 2 Peter 2:15

Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting, for whoever greets him takes part in his wicked works. 2 John 9-11

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and the plate, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. You blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and the plate, that the outside also may be clean.

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead people’s bones and all uncleanness. So you also outwardly appear righteous to others, but within you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness. Matthew 23:25-28

A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing – Theological Liberalism: The Classic Collection with R.C. Sproul — We are living in a day when liberal theology has made deep inroads in the church. Many professing Christians and even ordained ministers no longer believe in the authority of Scripture or the resurrection of Jesus Christ. How can people deny these essential doctrines and still call themselves Christians? In this message, Dr. Sproul explains that liberal Christianity is not Christianity at all. It is nothing more than unbelief.
