Bill Gaither's Ecumenism

 

by

 

Karen Pansler-Lam, J.D.

 

 

 

After watching the Gaither infomercial for God Bless the USA...I threw away my Gaither CDs! 

 

I've never been a big fan of the Gaithers...never been to one of their concerts.  But I did have 2 of their CDs which I rarely listened to because most of their music is too showy: the singers are puffed up and sing to show off...not to glorify God.

 

Saturday night, I watched some of an infomercial for God Bless the USA and was shocked when the Gaithers and friends sang "Lean on Me" by Bill Withers.  This is not a hymn or gospel song...but the group was swaying and singing this song as an ecumenical hymn of praise to humanity.

 

Now, I should not have been shocked because on their CD Rock of Ages Randy Owen sings "One Big Heaven."  And I always skipped over this ecumenical song...

After watching the infomercial, I found this article by David Cloud explaining Bill Gaither perverts the Scripture "judge not" and joins hands with false religions in the Ecumenical Movement. As for Gaither warning against judging, Cloud states...

 

On the other hand, though the believer is forbidden to judge hypocritically (Mat. 7:1-5) and forbidden to judge in matters in which the Bible is silent in this New Testament dispensation (Rom. 14:1-5; Col. 2:16), such as in diet and holy days, he is most definitely taught to judge many things by testing it with the Word of God and condemning it if it is in error. The believer is to judge sin in the church (1 Cor. 5:12). He is to judge preaching and teaching (1 Cor. 14:29; Acts 17:11). He is to reprove the unfruitful works of darkness (Eph. 5:11). As a matter of fact the Bible says that “he that is spiritual judgeth all things” (1 Cor. 2:15). That is a very far-reaching statement. The spiritual man knows that he lives in a world of sin and spiritual darkness and error and he is warned repeatedly in the Bible about false teaching and apostasy and spiritual deception. Thus he carefully tests everything by the light of God’s Word. The spiritual man does not judge by his own thinking and opinion, but by the holy Word of God, which he has in the Scriptures.

 

Take time to thoughtfully and prayerfully read Cloud's article...

 

Bill Gaither's Disobedience to God's Word

 

David Cloud closes his article...

 

The Bible instructs us to “have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them” (Eph. 5:11). Revelation 18:4 warns God’s people to come out from among the apostasy of the last hours “that ye be not partakers of her sins.” COMPLICITY WITH DOCTRINAL AND SPIRITUAL ERROR MAKES ME A PARTAKER WITH THAT ERROR. 2 John warns that even to bid God speed to a false teacher makes me “partaker of his evil deeds” (2 John 11). I realize this is a very hard line and one that is completely foreign to the thinking of this ecumenical-crazed age, but this is what the Word of God says.

I also realize that the Gaithers have produced some lovely sacred music in the past, but this is no excuse for disobedience to God’s Word. When the Gaithers greet 12,000 Roman Catholics, including many priests and nuns, as brethren in Christ, as they did at Indianapolis ’90, they are partakers of the evil deeds of Rome and God’s people should protest.

It is wrong to associate with those who walk in open disobedience to God’s Word and to support them with record sales and to bring their jazzed up music with its ecumenical philosophy into our churches and homes.

Yes, I threw my Gaither CDs in the garbage can.  I refuse to be a partaker of their evil deeds.
