Rebuilding 

the 

Tower of Babel

 

 

 

Are you making bricks to rebuild 

the Tower of Babel?

 

If you are teaching and preaching 

the false doctrines of religious humanism, 

then you are making bricks to rebuild 

the Tower of Babel.

 

Repent and build the Kingdom of God! 

 

 

 

Here is the e-mail I sent on July 23rd to the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary:

 

Excerpts from “Enemies of the Cross of Christ” @ http://www.libertyadvocate.com/

 

Even on many evangelical Christian campuses, there is an emphasis on social justice and good works instead of evangelism and righteous living. False teachers cleverly teach some true doctrine and include false teachings with it.  Many Christian schools preach Christian Humanitarianism, not “Christ crucified.”  Students are not taught the Truth – the doctrine of the Cross of Christ.  Instead they are indoctrinated with the false gospel of Christian Humanitarianism.

I witnessed this crusade for Christian Humanitarianism while visiting my alma mater last year – Southeastern University of the Assemblies of God in Lakeland, Florida.  Many students were wearing t-shirts crusading against poverty in Africa. During chapel, a special offering was collected to fight human trafficking.  Outside the cafeteria, tables were set up collecting money for another social cause.  Southeastern is not a Christ-centered school.  The School is not crusading for Christ, but crusading for man – Christian Humanitarianism. Southeastern is a man-centered school.

No t-shirts were worn crusading for lost sinners.  In chapel, no offering was collected to send Bibles to foreign nations.  Outside the cafeteria, no tables were set up collecting money for world evangelism.

There was no mention of Jesus Christ who came to set us free from the bondage of sin. And, sadly, the student body  is polluted with drugs, alcohol, fornication and other “old” sins that are no longer denounced or disciplined.  It is no longer a true Christian school.  True Christian schools teach a life of purity and expect their students to live a life of holiness. A student body polluted with sin desperately needs the Message of the Cross!

O Southeastern, humble yourselves, and pray, and seek the face of the Lord, and turn from your wicked ways and be healed!  “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (II Chronicles 7:14).

O Southeastern, what can wash away your sin?  Nothing but the blood of Jesus. 

Men who profess to be Christians and teach “man glorified” instead of  “Christ crucified" are false teachers.  They teach the damnable heresy of Christian Humanitarianism that denies the Lord shed His blood on the Cross to save sinners. Christian Humanitarians deny the Cross; therefore, they bring upon themselves and their followers the destruction of their soul and eternal damnation.

The Apostle Peter warns us:  “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction” (II Peter 2:1).

Southeastern must repent and preach the Message of the Cross instead of the damnable heresy of Christian Humanitarianism.

Christian Humanitarians deny the power of the Cross.

Christian Humanitarians are enemies of the Cross of Christ.

The heart of the gospel is that God sent His Son to die on the Cross for sinners. The Cross is the Power of God because it was there that the total sin debt was paid, allowing us to be filled with the Holy Spirit.

Without the Cross of Christ, there is no reconciliation between God and sinner.

Without the Cross of Christ, there is no redemption.

Without the Cross of Christ, there is no sanctification.

Without the Cross of Christ, there is no justification.

Without the Cross of Christ, there is no atonement.

Without the Cross of Christ, there is no salvation.

Without the Cross of Christ, lost souls are doomed to eternal damnation.

The next day I received this e-mail from Johan Mostert at the Seminary:  

 

Dear Karen 

 

Kindly remove my name from your circulation list. Thank you

 

And then later that day:

 

Dear Karen

I hastily asked you to remove my name from your circulation list this morning...I recant...I guess it is important for me to hear views like yours as well.

I need to inform you that we at AGTS have similarly "slid down the slippery slope" of emphasizing social justice in several classes, and I want to take partial responsibility for that.  You see I'm an African, and don't have the luxury of ignoring issues of poverty, AIDS and sexual trafficking where I come from.  I would not be able to promote a Western God that doesn't care about these issues in my home!  In fact I would find it very difficult to overlook the 2000 verses in the Bible that speak about the poor and God's concern for them!

In your future public communications could you please also mention that AGTS has also decided to follow on this path?  We would welcome the free publicity.  The course in Pentecostal Perspectives on Justice, the Church and Society has been so popular among our students that it has now become a requirement for ALL M.Div. students!!!  I'm sure that this should be a cause of great concern to you!  But even more!  We now have a concentration in our PhD in Intercultural Ministries that focuses on Relief and Development.  I'm sure that this would warrant a special chapter on your website and I would be thrilled to provide you with any information you may need!

I have also decided to make a hard copy of your email (and the piece on the website) and promise you that we will use it as a discussion starter in the class next year.  In keeping with academic freedom and good Christian manners I promise that we will discuss your views with the dignity that they deserve.  I would ask you to show the same respect when you publicize our emphasis on issues of social justice in these courses as well!  

Thank you

And here is my reply:

Dear Dr. Mostert,  

Mere political and social reform never cured the evils that afflicted society in the past. Neither will mere political and social reform cure the evils that afflict society in the present, or will afflict society in the future. 

 

Here are responses to some of your statements:  

 

1)      “You see I'm an African, and don't have the luxury of ignoring issues of poverty, AIDS and sexual trafficking where I come from.”  

 

Sin and suffering are universal and timeless.  No race has the “luxury” of ignoring social issues. Every nation is afflicted with sin. Personal and social sins have afflicted man since the Creation.  

 

Have you suffered gender discrimination?  

 

Have you suffered slander and the loss of your job for speaking out against racism?  

 

Have you suffered age discrimination?  

 

I have suffered all these injustices.  And I have spoken out against them on Liberty Advocate:  

 

“Gender Discrimination is a Sin”  

“Corrupt Public Officials in the Hands of an Angry God”

“Oppression in the Workplace: The Enslaved Employee”

And others. . .   

 

Moreover, I have been unemployed since July 2009 because of age discrimination; I am only 52 years old.  And my husband has not been able to find a decent-paying job since he moved here from Virginia before we met.  Our current income is poverty level.  I have applied for several jobs, but have not even had one interview.  However, we are trusting in the Lord to supply our needs and a job. 

 

America, like every other nation has suffering people.  

 

Yes, we must speak out for justice. But it must be based on God's Law.

 

 

2)      “I would not be able to promote a Western God that doesn't care about these issues in my home!” 

 

a.      Christians don’t “promote” God.  We are not promoting a man or a cause. The Great Commission exhorts us to preach the Gospel.  We preach “Christ crucified.” To preach is to proclaim the good news that the Lord Jesus Christ is our Savior.  God alone can save us from sin and its consequences.

   

b.  True Christians do not preach a "Western" God.  We preach the one true God of the Bible.  We preach the same God that was preached by missionaries to Africa for the past hundreds of years. 

 

i) Are you saying that countless missionaries to Africa over the past hundreds of years who preached the pure Gospel failed because they promoted a “Western” God?

 

ii) Are you saying that the missionaries and evangelists today who preach “Christ crucified” in Africa will be rejected because they do not preach a social gospel?  

 

iii) Are you saying cultural, social and political issues draw men to Christ instead of the leading of the Holy Spirit?  

 

iv) Are you saying that evangelists and missionaries should preach liberation theology?  

 

One of my best friends in law school was a black woman born in Africa. In fact, her grandmother lives in a mud hut. My friend’s father was a high-ranking government official. Unfortunately, her family was forced to flee one night during political upheaval.  They settled in France and then America.  She is a good Christian woman who believes in the one true God of the Bible. She does not distinguish between a “Western” God and an “African” God. She did not create a god to reflect the political, cultural and social interests of Africans.  

 

Are you saying that the Gospel must be perverted to address the different needs and interests of cultures - different gospels for different cultures?  

 

Obviously, Jesus did not teach or preach this strategy. Jesus preached the same gospel message to the Jews and the Gentiles.  He did not preach one gospel for the Jews and another gospel for the Gentiles.  

 

And in Paul’s missionary journeys, he preached the same gospel everywhere.  He did not preach one gospel for the Corinthians and another gospel for the Thessalonians.  

   

To preach a different Jesus and a different gospel to different cultures is the strategy of Satan: “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.  For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, who we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him” (II Corinthians 11:3, 4).  

 

To preach a different Jesus or a different gospel to different cultures is the strategy of Satan. To preach a different spirit is the spirit of anti-Christ.

 

We must preach the pure Gospel and the true Jesus to all cultures.  

 

The Jews reject Christ because they want a savior who will set up an earthly throne and put them into power.  

 

Apparently, according to your e-mail, Africans want a different Jesus. Like the Jews, Africans reject the true Jesus because they want a savior – social reformer – who will set up an earthly throne and put them into power.  Social reformers pretend they want social justice.  But what they really want is power and the spoils of social and political reform.  In other words, they want the redistribution of wealth of other nations.

Some preach that Jesus taught the redistribution of wealth.  This is a fable! This is a lie!  Did Jesus distribute money to the poor?  No. The Bible never records Jesus distributing money to the poor.  He taught charity to the deserving poor.

And the early church demanded that every man fulfill his duty of work. In II Thessalonians, Paul writes: “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat” (3:10).  Paul didn’t suggest it - he commanded it:

6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.

 7 For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you;

 8 Neither did we eat any man's bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you:

 9 Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.

 10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.

And in a letter to Timothy (I Timothy 5: 3 -16) addressing the Church’s duty to support widows, the Apostle Paul explains the Church should give money to deserving widows only.  And he specifies the qualifications:

1.  The widow is too old to work.  The Church must refuse welfare to young     widows because their idleness will lead to no good – busybodies and tattlers. 

2. She was legally married to one man; not a polygamist. 

3. She is known for her good works.  

4.  If the widow has living relatives they are to support the widow – not the Church!  “If any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the church be charged; that it may relieve them that are widows indeed" (I Timothy 5:4,16). In other words, if a person is in financial need, it is the responsibility of their family to help them, not the Church!

And Paul admonishes the Thessalonians: “ And that ye study to be quiet, to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you; That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing” (I Thessalonians 4:11, 12).

And Paul instructs Corinthians as to ministering to the saints:  “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” (II Corinthians 8:13, 14). 

Clearly, Scripture teaches personal responsibility: Work. Provide for yourself and your family.  Don’t be a burden to others.  Don’t beg for money.

Irrefutably, there is no evidence in Scripture that Jesus or His Disciples taught the redistribution of wealth. 

The truth is there is the sin of national coveteousness:  a nation covets another nation’s possessions. Hence they may try to steal it by physical force.  Or they may try to steal it by political and social force. 

Again, mere political and social reform never cured the evils that afflicted society in the past. Neither will mere political and social reform cure the evils that will afflict society at the present, or will afflict society in the future.

Psychology and liberation theology and other profane and vain babblings and “scientific” theories can never redeem the human race.  Paul warned Timothy:

“O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith” (I Timothy 6: 20.)

Man has tried in vain to reform man through psychology and other “scientific” doctrines. But the problem with these manmade doctrines is that they can only reform behavior.  Specifically, they cannot transform the heart.  And the heart of man is wicked:

“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9).

“For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies” (Matthew 15:19).  

Do you really want to stop sex trafficking? Laws will not stop it. There are already laws against it. The best way to stop it is for the dealers to have a change of heart. The transforming power of the Gospel purifies the heart, the mind, and the soul.  A true spiritual reformation results in sanctification.  And sanctification heals the whole man! Read I Corinthians 6: 9 –11.

Be ye transformed!  “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:2).

And Ephesians 4 exhorts us to be renewed in the spirit of your mind:

23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

27 Neither give place to the devil.

28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labor, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may give to him that needeth.

Psychology may lead to reformation. But reformation merely means reformed or new behavior.

But transformation means a new heart!  By the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, the sinner becomes a saint!  Imagine a world of saints!  There would be peace on earth!

Man cannot save man.

Man cannot save the world.

However, Christian Humanitarians replace “Christ crucified” with man glorified.  And your e-mail is a perfect example of this. You glorify yourself and AGTS:

I need to inform you that we at AGTS have similarly "slid down the slippery slope" of emphasizing social justice in several classes, and I want to take partial responsibility for that. . . The course in Pentecostal Perspectives on Justice, the Church and Society has been so popular among our students that it has now become a requirement for ALL M.Div. students!!!  I'm sure that this should be a cause of great concern to you!  But even more!  We now have a concentration in our PhD in Intercultural Ministries that focuses on Relief and Development. 

You glory in man's efforts; you do not glory in the Cross.

You substitute “man glorified” for “Christ crucified.” 

Your boasting, or self-glorification, is not good. “He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord” (I Corinthians 1:31).

Foolish men glorify their efforts and boast they can save the world. 

Rick Warren believes the great commission is to empower ourselves and go into all the world and preach the gospel of reconciliation, or religious humanism; then we can save ourselves. The gospel of reconciliation is a substitution for the Gospel of Salvation.

Warren imagines there will be peace on earth if we all work together through humanitarian efforts to build a global government and a new world religion – religious humanism.  Warren is helping rebuild the Tower of Babel.

In fact, Rick Warren used the Tower of Babel as the major symbol of his 2004 “40 Days of Community” program to represent the goal for his agenda to build a global community of churches. According to Mac Dominick, author of the book, Rebuilding the Tower of Babel, Warren asserts that the Tower of Babel is a perfect example of what can be accomplished when we work together to reach a common goal.  Warren stated that the construction crew of the Tower of Babel worked so well together that God intervened to separate them. This is blasphemy! http://www.cuttingedge.org/news/RTBIntroduction.html

Warren is committing spiritual harlotry by finding excuses for conforming to the worship of the image of the beast as prophesied in the book of Revelation. The glitter, the glamour, the pomp, and the prestige have dazzled Warren in his connection with international organizations and intoxicated him with thoughts of his magnificence and power.  He believes he is so magnificent and powerful that he can bring peace on earth. And Warren is heading up the apostate Evangelical church with his false gospel of reconciliation, or religious humanism – the new world religion under a global government.

A global government will not bring peace on earth.  A one-world religion will not bring peace. If we want peace on earth, nations must humbly kneel before God and turn from their wicked ways.  Then God will heal our nations and our world. 

But the Bible tells us that this will never happen.  Instead of humbly bowing at the feet of God, the Book of Revelation prophesies that men will commit spiritual harlotry by finding excuses for conforming to the worship of the image of the beast.

And Warren has committed spiritual harlotry by yielding to worldly influence.  He has become the servant of the Council on Foreign Relations. Warren is America’s most dangerous religious leader because he represents faithless Christians, the apostate portion of the Church.  The faithless portion of the Church chooses to love the world more than God, and be connected with the powers of this world.

The “woman that sits upon the beast” in Revelation 17 describes those who prefer to trust to the power and influence of the world rather than God.  The purple and scarlet color in which she is dressed signifies the worldly magnificence of the apostate Church.

Listen to this, the European Union’s chosen symbol is a woman riding the beast.  In fact, a statue of a woman riding a beast is located just outside the EU office in Brussels.  See it for yourself: http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/End%20of%20the%20World/seat_666.htm

In the past, Warren boasted he is a member of the Illuminati’s Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). The mission of the CFR is to destroy nationalism and redefine American policy and have the United States join a global government.  www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=53688

Warren is not concerned about building the Kingdom of God; he is concerned about building the kingdom of Satan: a global community of a one-world government and the one-world religion of religious humanism. He ignorantly believes that his PEACE strategy will bring peace on earth.  Unquestionably, Warren is helping rebuild the Tower of Babel.

And, by the way, in the late 20th century the Tower of Babel became the symbol of the new European Union. See it for yourself: www.biblelight.net/Tower-of-Babel.htm

The Bible records the building of the original Tower in Genesis 11:

1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.

2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shi-nar; and they dwelt there.

3 And they said one to another Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly.  And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar.

4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.

6 And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand on another’s speech.

8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

No true Christian will ever join hands to rebuild the Tower of Babel.

Mr. Mostert, are you making bricks to rebuild the Tower of Babel? 

AGTS, are you making bricks to rebuild the Tower of Babel?

If you are teaching and preaching the false doctrines of religious humanism, then you are making bricks to rebuild the Tower of Babel.

Repent and build the Kingdom of God!
