All You Need Is Love ...

Hippie Love vs. Godly Love

 

by 

 

Karen Pansler-Lam, J.D.

 

 

Sinners and saints proclaim that to make the world a better place "all you need is love."  But which love - hippie love or Godly love?  They are not the same. 

 

Unfortunately, modern "Christians" - false Christians - preach hippie love, not Biblical love. Hippies in the 60s preached "don't judge" and advocated immorality and perversity. And modern Christians preach "don't judge" and acceptance of immorality and perversity.  Ignorantly or intentionally, modern Christians merely echo the 60s hippie theology: "all you need is love."

 

The American Heritage Dictionary (1980) defines “hippie”:

 

A member of a loosely knit, nonconformist group generally characterized by emphasis on universal love, withdrawal from conventional society, and a general rejection of its mores, especially regarding dress, personal appearance, and living habits. [From HIP (aware)].

 

The dictionary defines “hip” as “Aware of or in accordance with advanced tastes and attitudes.”

 

“Hippie” defines today’s “hip” Christian:  a member of a loosely knit, noncomformist/ecumenical group generally characterized by emphasis on universal love, withdrawal from conventional/traditional Christian society, and a general rejection of its doctrines and moral attitudes, especially regarding appropriate dress for church worship (shorts, flip flops, even swimsuits are OK), personal appearance (tattoos and piercing are “hip” and “edgy”), and living habits (hedonism is hip; holiness is old-fashioned).

 

Of course, “hip” churches never mention sin or repentance because they consider that judging. Instead, they preach universal love.  But this “universal love” is not genuine love.  In fact, it’s a dark and dangerous love. It’s a humanist love that silences the true message of salvation and sends countless lost souls to eternal damnation. 

 

Alas…

 

Hippie love refuses to warn sinners of the wrath of God.

 

Hippie love urges sinners to remain estranged from God. 

 

Hippie love hates Godly love because Godly love reaches out to sinners, and warns them God is angry with the wicked.

 

God judgeth the righteous,

and God is angry with the wicked every day.

Psalm 7:11

 

Godly love urges sinners to reconcile to God.

 

Now then we are ambassadors for Christ,

as though God did beseech you by us:

we pray you in Christ's stead,

be ye reconciled to God.

2 Corinthians 5:20

 

 

 

In the Beginning: The Ten Commandments

 

Moses did not create and enact the Ten Commandments. God – the Lawgiver - spoke all these words.  The first table (first four) of the Ten Commandments concerns our duty to God; the second table (last six) concerns our duty to self and others summed up in the second great commandment, “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” 

 

Modern Christians do not understand that we cannot righteously fulfill the second table if we do not righteously fulfill the first table.

 

Matthew Henry comments:

 

It was fit that those should be put first, because man had a Maker to love before he had a neighbour to love; and justice and charity are acceptable acts of obedience to God only when they flow from the principles of piety. It cannot be expected that he should be true to his brother who is false to his God.  Now our duty to God is, in one word, to worship him, that is, to give him the glory due to his name, the inward worship of our affections, the outward worship of solemn address and attendance.  This is spoken of as the sum and substance of the everlasting gospel. Rev. xiv.7, Worship God.

 

Briefly, the first table of the Ten Commandments commands us to love the Lord thy God, and is condensed in the first commandment of the New Testament:

 

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God

with all thy heart,

and with all thy soul,

and with all thy mind,

and with all thy strength:

this is the first commandment.

  Mark 12:30

 

So, when we ask how to "love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength” the first table of the Ten Commandments explains how to love God truly. But each commandment must be considered thoughtfully and sincerely, considering the intent. The Ten Commandments as recorded in Exodus 20 command us:

 

1. Do not have other gods.  This includes polytheism, narcissism, socialism/communism and other “isms” that displace God’s rightful place in our hearts, homes and nations. 

 

For example, Americans embrace polytheism under the name of "multiculturalism."  We pride ourselves on our cultural diversity, or tolerance of other religions: Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Wicca, and other wicked religions.  We call it ecumenism and multiculturalism.  But it’s polytheism. And it’s having “other gods before me.”

 

And Americans embrace narcissism or self-worship under the guise of self-esteem and other psychobabble.  Instead of humility – made in the image of God – we are taught to practice excessive self-admiration and self-love resulting in self-worship.  We vainly wear t-shirts proclaiming “I Am Awesome.” And we vainly proclaim to each other “We’re awesome!”  This is the opposite of the Godly virtue of humility. Incidentally, only God is awesome. 

 

2. Do not worship graven images.  We must not make images of Mary or Buddha or anyone to worship.

 

3. Do not take the name of the Lord God in vain.  Do not profess to be a Christian, but live wickedly or falsely.  Do not use the name of the Lord flippantly or in cursing. Do not preach a false gospel.

 

4. Remember the Sabbath.  Keep it holy.  God blessed and sanctified the seventh day as a day of rest.  The Sabbath was to be kept as a Jewish holy day, set apart to honor the holy God.  The New Testament did away with the Sabbath and instituted the Lord’s Day; it must be observed in the same reverent spirit.

 

Again, if we do not righteously fulfill the first table’s duty to God, we cannot righteously fulfill the second table’s duty to self and others. 

 

And the second table of the Ten Commandments explains the second New Testament commandment to love your neighbor as yourself.

 

5. Honor your parents.  Young children and youth must obey their parents’ lawful commands.  And all children, even into adulthood, must respect, comfort, and support their parents. 

 

6. Do not kill.  As evidenced in the Old Testament, this does not forbid killing in lawful war, or self-defense, nor capital punishment. But it does forbid killing the unborn.

 

7. Do not commit adultery.  Do not defile the body with acts of fleshly lust.

 

8. Do not steal.   Do not rob others of what is not rightfully yours.  And do not withhold from others what is rightfully theirs.  For example, pay your debts.  Do not foolishly overspend and then declare bankruptcy.

 

9. Do not bear false witness.  No lying, slandering, backbiting, tale-bearing and other wicked conversation that will harm the reputation of your neighbor.

 

10. Do not covet.  Do not envy your neighbor’s possessions.  And do not demand a portion of what someone else has worked for and demand the redistribution of wealth.  Those who are unwilling to work – lazy – often covet what others have worked for and demand they are entitled to a portion of it through welfare and other forms of redistribution of wealth.  This is coveting.  And this is stealing.

  

Indeed, the second table of the Commandments is expressed in the Golden Rule: 

 

Therefore all things whatsoever ye would

 that men should do to you,

do ye even so to them:

for this is the law and the prophets.

Matthew 7:12

 

For a further explanation of these commandments, study Leviticus chapters 18 and 19.

 

To repeat, Jesus condenses the Ten Commandments to two commandments:

 

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God

with all thy heart,

and with all thy soul,

and with all thy mind,

and with all thy strength:

This is the first commandment.

 

And the second is like,

namely this,

Thou shalt love thy neighbour

as thyself.

There is none other commandment

greater than these.

Mark 12:30, 31

 

Again, these two commandments merely echo the Ten Commandments. 

 

And Paul explains “love thy neighbor as thyself”…

 

Owe no man any thing,

but to love one another:

for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.

 

For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery,

Thou shalt not kill,

Thou shalt not steal,

Thou shalt not bear false witness,

Thou shalt not covet;

and if there be any other commandment,

it is briefly comprehended in this saying,

namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

 

Love worketh no ill to his neighbour:

therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

Romans 13:8-10

 

But modern Christians purposely misinterpret the commandment to “love thy neighbor.” They claim it means to tolerate homosexuality, laziness and “disability” (robbing the taxpayers through “disability” and other welfare), abortion, ecumenism/multiculturalism (polytheism), and other wickedness.  This is rooted in the 60s hippie theology, “don’t judge.”  The 60s hippies preached this demonic doctrine determined to defy and destroy Christianity.  And hippies used mind-altering psychedelic techniques such as rock music to indoctrinate youth with hippie propaganda.  Under the guise of freedom of choice and human rights they advocated moral license.  Unfortunately, youth were bewitched by their wicked “love” theology.  Consequently, many contemporary pastors and other church leaders preach hippie love, not Godly love. 

 

 

The Ten Commandments of Hippie Theology

 

 

Modern Christians bewitched by the hippie theology of “universal love” have created their own Ten Commandments.  These commandments glorify man and defy God’s Commandments:

 

1. Worship other gods besides the Lord God.  Pray to other gods! Celebrate polytheism/ecumenism! There’s truth in every religion. And worship yourself! Proclaim: “I Am Awesome!”

 

2. Bow down to graven images.  Participate in ecumenism by bowing down to Mary and other gods.  Religion is just a question of cultural and personal preference. There is no true religion; there’s truth in every religion. Make yourself look “awesome” and  “hip” by accepting all religions.

 

3. Don’t take Christianity seriously.  Lighten up! Joke about Christianity.  Replace sacred worship services pleasing to God with entertainment pleasing to man.  Replace holiness with humanitarianism.  Do plenty of “good works” such as feeding the lazy and irresponsible and other acts of goodness to make you look compassionate and awesome.

 

4. Celebrate the Sabbath.  The Sabbath is a day for church fun.  Joke!  Rock! Celebrate humanity!  And don’t use words such as “reverence” and “holiness” and “sacred.” They are too solemn. Make Christianity edgy and totally awesome! 

 

5. Ignore your parents.  If your parents try to teach you holiness and righteousness, ignore them. They are old-fashioned and have old-fashioned ideas.  There is no such thing as Truth…you can create your own “truth.”  So, don’t let them preach old-time Gospel to you.

 

6. Don’t kill animals, but it’s OK to kill unborn babies.  Animals have the same rights as man.  So, don’t eat meat because man and animal are equal. Man does not have dominion over the animals. But it’s OK to kill unborn babies.

 

7. If it feels good, do it!  In hip Christianity, holiness is out-dated so you can live out your wildest imaginations:  adultery, fornication, homosexuality and all other sexual behavior.  Smoke pot, get drunk, and self-indulge. Your body is not the temple of the Holy Spirit…it’s YOUR body.  Besides, Christianity is not about personal holiness; it’s about humanitarianism – social and political activism.

 

8. Live it up!  Buy what you want…then don’t pay for it!  You deserve it because you’re awesome!  Help yourself to countless gifts and then declare bankruptcy!

 

9. Bear false witness against your Christian neighbor.  Tolerate all folks except those preaching old-time Christianity.  Bully old-time Christians into silence and passivity.  Shout down those who preach holiness, reverence, righteousness and other doctrines that preach self-denial. Do whatever it takes – even lying – to shut up and put down those who hold high holiness. And make sure you denounce them by pointing your finger and shouting “don’t judge.” 

 

10. Covet. Be happy!  Don’t work if you don’t want to!  Demand that working folks pay for your choice of lifestyle.  Demand an entitlement! Despise honest and hard work. And spend…spend…spend…and go into debt.  Be happy!

 

Incidentally, unlike the 60s hippies who protested against materialism, lived in communes, and collected welfare, modern Christians often embrace spending to look “hip”: cool clothing, tattoos, edgy haircuts, sporty vehicles and other status symbols of vanity.

 

 

 

The Great Commission

 

Hip Christianity insists that we should not preach or witness to sinners. In other words, if you’re preaching to them, then you’re judging them.  This is part of their “don’t judge” theology.  Of course, the 60s hippies practiced the same hypocrisy: when they were shouting “don’t judge” they were denouncing  - judging – the “Establishment” and every institution, including the Church. 

 

The undeniable truth is if we truly love the Lord Jesus Christ, we will obey His final command to reach out to sinners…

 

And he said unto them,

Go ye into all the world,

and preach the gospel to every creature.

 

He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved;

and he that believeth not shall be damned.

Mark 16:15, 16

 

Undeniably, Jesus was a preacher.  And he commanded all His disciples to continue His mission and go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.

 

Matthew Henry comments:

 

What is the summary of the gospel they are to preach (v. 16); “Set before the world life and death, good and evil.  Tell the children of men that they are all in a state of misery and danger, condemned by their prince, and conquered and enslaved by their enemies.”  This is supposed in their being saved, which they would not need to be if they were not lost. “Now go and tell them,” (1.) “ That if they believe the gospel, and give up themselves to be Christ’s disciples; if they renounce the devil, the world, and the flesh, and be devoted to Christ as their prophet, priest, and king, and to God in Christ as their God in covenant, and evidence by their constant adherence to this covenant their sincerity herein, they shall be saved from the guilt and power of sin, it shall not rule them, it shall not ruin them.  He that is a true Christian, shall be saved through Christ.”

 

Henry points out that sinners are in danger; they are condemned by Christ, and conquered and enslaved by sin. 

 

Now, if you truly love the lost, don’t you want to deliver them from damnation, and set them free from the bondage of their sins? 

 

God has chosen the “foolishness” of preaching to “save them that believe” (1 Corinthians 1:21). Sinners must hear the true Gospel.  And how can they hear if no one preaches to them?

 

How then shall they call on him in

whom they have not believed?

and how shall they believe in him of whom

they have not heard?

and how shall they hear without a preacher?

Romans 10:14

 

Jesus preached repentance…

 

From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say,

Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Matthew 4:17

 

 

Jesus preached…

 

Ye must be born again.

John 3:7

 

And the disciples preached repentance:

 

And they went out,

and preached that men should repent.

Mark 6:12

 

Then Peter said unto them,

Repent, and be baptized every one of you

in the name of Jesus Christ

for the remission of sins,

and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Acts 2:38

 

Repent ye therefore,

and be converted,

that your sins may be blotted out,

when the times of refreshing shall come

from the presence of the Lord.

Acts 3:19

 

Peter preached repentance, warning sinners of the coming day of judgment:

 

And the times of this ignorance God winked at;

but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent:

 

Because he hath appointed a day,

in the which he will judge the world in righteousness

by that man whom he hath ordained;

whereof he hath given assurance unto all men,

in that he hath raised him from the dead.

Acts 17:30, 31

 

O sinner: Repent!

 

O America: Repent!

 

O that men and women would rise up around the world and preach “Repent!”

 

The world needs a great revival.  We need men and women who will boldly preach the fiery message of repentance and salvation.  We must call men and women to repentance. 

 

The Great Awakening was a time of great revival.  Bold preachers such as Jonathan Edwards thundered the Truth that we are sinners in the hands of an angry God.  Hearts and lives were genuinely transformed.  And entire towns were transformed.  However, many foolish folks got carried away and turned the revival into a religious circus. Sadly, today the Charismatics and other Pentecostals often turn a church service into an emotional spectacle instead of a true moving of the Holy Spirit.

 

Some insist we are now experiencing a revival because of the increased number of mega-churches.  But false churches cannot have true revivals; preaching a false gospel cannot kindle a true revival.  A gospel without repentance and righteousness and holiness is a false gospel.

 

True repentance brings forth the fruits of good works.  This means a holy and righteous character.  But modern Christians insist good works means humanitarianism.

 

 

 

Humanitarianism vs. Holiness

 

Rick Warren and other false Christian leaders preach the hippie theology that Christianity must focus on social issues, not sin.  This creates a battle between humanitarianism and holiness.

 

In the August 18, 2008, issue of Time magazine, the cover story heralds, “The Purpose Driven Pastor: Rick Warren – America’s most powerful religious leader takes on the world.”

 

According to the Time article, Warren is “both leading and riding the newest wave of change in the Evangelical community:  an expansion beyond social conservatism to causes such as battling poverty, opposing torture and combating global warming.” And he has shifted away from “sin issues” – like abortion and gay marriage – and is more interested in questions that are “uniting” such as poverty, HIV/AIDS, climate change and human rights. 

 

My friend, when you shift away from “sin issues,” you shift away from the true Gospel.

 

Warren and other hippie theologians teach that Jesus was a social reformer, not the Savior. They preach Jesus came to bring social reform to the world, not salvation. These false Christian leaders have hoodwinked many church folks into believing that compassion means humanitarianism/socialism/communism.  For instance, let’s briefly discuss welfare. Granted, the Bible commands charity to the deserving poor. But who are the deserving poor? Not the lazy, for Paul writes the command that those who do not work, do not eat (2 Thessalonians 3:10-15). And Proverbs repeatedly condemns the slothful and warns them their laziness will end in poverty.

 

Clearly, Paul encouraged Christians to temporarily send contributions for the poor saints (Romans 15:26; 2 Corinthians 9:12; Galatians 6: 10; etc.). 

 

For I mean not that other men be eased,
and ye burdened:  
But by an equality,
that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want,
that their abundance also may be a supply for your want:
 
that there may be equality.

2 Corinthians 8:13,14

 

Nowhere in the Bible does God command we carry the burden and allow other men to be eased.  God never commands the church to set up a permanent welfare program.

 

But churches ignore Scripture after Scripture and pride themselves on feeding the lazy.  Money that should be spent on distributing Bibles and other true missions work is spent on feeding those who squander their money on drugs, booze, cigarettes, cell phones, and other wasteful spending.  

 

The deserving poor are orphans and widows. Yet, Paul explains to Timothy that widows must meet specific qualifications before being supported by the church (1 Timothy 5:8-16). 

 

Matthew Henry wisely writes: “Charity misplaced is a great hindrance to true charity; there should be prudence in the choice of the objects of charity, that it may not be thrown away upon those who are not properly so, that there may be the more for those who are real objects of charity.”

 

But modern Christians do not use prudence in charity and give to anyone who asks.  If a drunk on the street begs for money, Christians give him money to buy another bottle of booze.  And if a bum – “homeless”- person begs for money, Christians give him money to remain lazy and irresponsible.  And when you try to instruct false Christians in true charity, they become arrogant and call you “judgmental” and “uncaring.”

 

Because modern Christians despise humility and holiness and self-denial they create their own standard of righteousness based on charity.  In other words, they feel their numerous “loving” humanitarian good works entitle them to God’s grace.  But the Bible clearly states that humanitarianism and other social and political activism is not the same as love.

 

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor,

and though I give my body to be burned,

and have not charity,

it profiteth me nothing.

1 Corinthians 13:3

 

Matthew Henry comments:

 

The external act of giving alms may proceed from a very ill principle.  Vain-glorious ostentation, or a proud conceit of merit, may put a man to large expense this way who has no true love to God nor men. Our doing good to others will do none to us, if it be not well done, namely, from a principle of devotion and charity, love to God, and good-will to men.  If we give away all we have, while we withhold the heart from God, it will not profit.

 

This is the spirit of error in the modern church: they zealously work for social causes but withhold their hearts from God.  It will not profit.

 

And not only do they work zealously for social causes, they advocate social reforms contrary to God’s commands.  Modern “compassion” is based on the hippie theology of humanitarianism, not holiness. “Christian” humanitarianism believes that humanist good works will bring peace to the world, not Jesus Christ.

 

The American Heritage Dictionary (1980) defines “humanitarianism”:

 

1. The ideas, principles, or methods of humanitarianisms; charity; philanthropy. 2. Ethics. a. The belief that man’s sole moral obligation is to work for the improved welfare of humanity. b. The belief that the nature of man may reach perfection through his own efforts without divine aid. 3. Theology. The belief or doctrine that Jesus was mortal rather than divine.

 

Clearly, humanitarianism is hippie theology.  It is rooted in the belief that man is savior.  In other words, man can be perfected through his own efforts: Man can be perfected without God’s grace.  And hippie theology humanizes Jesus by ignoring His wondrous miracles and other demonstrations of divine power.  They portray Jesus as a Super Hippie.  This is blasphemy! 

 

Undeniably, Jesus warns us that humanitarianism does not entitle one entrance into the kingdom of heaven:

 

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord,

shall enter into the kingdom of heaven;

but he that doeth the will of my Father

 which is in heaven.

 

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord,

have we not prophesied in thy name?

and in thy name have cast out devils?

and in thy name done many wonderful works?

 

And then will I profess unto them,

I never knew you:

depart from me,

ye that work iniquity.

Matthew 7:21-23

 

Religious humanism will not get us into heaven.  Jesus warns those who walk in sin: “I never knew you: depart from me.”

 

There is only one way to heaven…

Ye must be born again.

John 3:7

 

Go back to the Time article explaining Rick Warren’s new Christianity as “an expansion beyond social conservatism to causes such as battling poverty, opposing torture and combating global warming.” And he has shifted away from “sin issues” – like abortion and gay marriage – and is more interested in questions that are “uniting” such as poverty, HIV/AIDS, climate change and human rights.” 

 

Jesus will profess unto Warren and other hippie theologians who replace the true Gospel with humanitarianism…  

 

I never knew you:

Depart from me,

ye that work iniquity.

 

The wisdom of this world – humanitarianism - is foolishness with God (1 Corinthians 3:19).

 

 

 

Feed the Hungry

 

Jesus commanded us to love one another “as I have loved you.” 

 

This is my commandment,

That ye love one another,

as I have loved you.

John 15:12

 

Jesus goes on to explain that true Christians will be hated and persecuted by the world just as He was hated by the world.  And why was He hated and persecuted?  For exposing their sin and preaching holiness.  And His disciples were persecuted for preaching the Gospel message of repentance toward God and righteousness. 

 

Let us cleanse ourselves from all

filthiness of the flesh and spirit,

perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

2 Corinthians 7:1

 

Hippie theologians like Rick Warren purposely overlook Jesus’ words: Go, and sin no more (John 8:11). 

 

Hippie theologians like Rick Warren deny God’s call to salvation and holiness by the sanctifying power of the Holy Ghost.

 

Hippie theologians like Rick Warren are enemies of righteousness and holiness and pervert the right ways of the Lord. 

 

They worship man instead of God.

 

Who changed the truth of God into a lie,

and worshipped the creature more than the Creator,

who is blessed for ever.

Romans 1:25

 

Modern churches pride themselves on imitating Christ by feeding the hungry.  But Jesus never fed the hungry daily.  When Jesus traveled from town to town daily, He never multiplied the loaves and fishes and handed out food to every hungry person.  The only times He handed out food was when people came to hear Him preach in the wilderness and food was not available.  In fact, hippie theologians always overlook when people came to Capernaum seeking for Jesus to give them food, and Jesus answered them…

 

Verily, verily, I say unto you,

Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles,

but because ye did eat of the loaves,

and were filled.

 

Labour not for the meat which perisheth,

but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life,

which the Son of man shall give unto you:

for him hath God the Father sealed.

John 6:26, 27

 

Christ rebuked the people for following Him for food.  

 

The church is not responsible for feeding the hungry.  The church is not called to become a welfare program. The responsibility for providing for the family is with the head of the household. Paul writes…

 

But if any provide not for his own,
and specially for those of his own house,
he hath denied the faith,
and is worse than an infidel.

1 Timothy 5:8

 

Irrefutably, we are commanded to take care of our own families and not throw the burden on the church or civil government. 

 

 

 

Warn the Wicked

 

Don’t be deceived by the hippie rhetoric “all you need is love.”  This false gospel preaches “love yourself: if it feels good, do it”; and “don’t judge: don’t preach or evangelize.”  This is not love. 

 

Hippie "love" hates Godly love because Godly love reaches out to sinners, and warns them God is angry with the wicked.

 

God judgeth the righteous,

and God is angry with the wicked every day.

Psalm 7:11

 

O Christians: Beware of hippie theologians…

 

For there are certain men crept in unawares,

who were before of old ordained to this condemnation,

ungodly men, turning the grace of God into lasciviousness,

and denying the only Lord God,

and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Jude 4

 

O Christians: Heed God’s Word to warn the wicked…

 

Preach the word;

be instant in season, out of season;

reprove,

rebuke,

exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

 

For the time will come when they will

not endure sound doctrine;

but after their own lusts shall

they heap to themselves teachers,

having itching ears;

 

And they shall turn away their ears from the truth,

and shall be turned unto fables.

 

But watch thou in all things,

endure afflictions,

do the work of an evangelist,

make full proof of thy ministry.

2 Timothy 4:2-5

 

O Christians…

 

Go ye into all the world,

and preach the gospel to every creature.

 

He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved;

and he that believeth not shall be damned.

Mark 16:15, 16
