The New Church Order

 

by

 

Karen Pansler-Lam, J.D.

 

 

 

We are witnessing one of the darkest periods

 in Evangelical church history. 

 

Alarmingly, many professing Christians are 

fiercely warring for a New Church Order. 

 

"Progressive" pastors are

progressively and aggressively

 forming the New Church Order.

 

And the New Church Order is the synagogue of Satan.  

 

And the synagogue of Satan is the New World Order Church, 

or the apostate Church.   

 

And the apostate church is the Great Whore of Babylon.

   

 

 

We are witnessing one of the darkest periods in Evangelical church history.  Evangelical church leaders are ignorantly and blindly forming the New Church Order, or the New World Order Church.  And the New World Order Church is the synagogue of Satan.  And the synagogue of Satan is the apostate Church.   And the apostate Church is the Great Whore of Babylon in the Book of Revelation.

Alarmingly, many “Christian” musicians are fiercely warring for a New Church Order.  For example, look at this excerpt (emphasis added) from the website of the music department at Southeastern University, an Assemblies of God school in Lakeland, Florida.  Note that one of their singing groups is called “New Order”:

Charisma, New Order, and the Sound
Students audition to be part of Southeastern Singers and receive $250 to $1,500 scholarships at the end of each semester for participation. Members of the choir also may audition to be part of smaller, student-led singing groups Charisma and New Order. The Sound, the name of the eight- to 10-piece band that accompanies Southeastern Singers, Charisma, and New Order, usually includes of a keyboardist, guitarists, a bassist, an organ/synthesizer player, a percussionist, a drummer, and a saxophonist, but the group's instrumentation can vary based upon the musicians who audition each semester. For more information about Southeastern Singers, call Director of Student Worship David Carlyle at (863) 667-5555. http://www.seuniversity.edu/life/singers.php

Of course, the instruments played in these groups are generally played for jazz or rock and roll, not sacred church music. I heard one of these college singing groups in October 2009 during a Southeastern chapel service.  The music was rebellious: loud, fierce, and profane.  It had a savage and violent beat. They call their worship “intense” instead of fierce.  But it is fierce and ferocious.  And their loud and ferocious yelling is not singing, but roaring. But this is all part of the New Church Order. And the goal of the New Church Order is to loudly and fiercely drown out and suppress sacred Christian worship - hymns, psalms, and gospel songs that stir the soul, not the flesh. 

Listen, dear friend, when the culture of the church imitates the culture of the world, it is an abomination.  It is a profanation of the sanctity of the sanctuary.  It is sacrilege in the sanctuary.

“Thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?” (Romans 2:22).

In 2008, I rebuked Victory Church in Lakeland, Florida, for its profane worship in "The Rebellious Church" @ http://libertyadvocate.com/message%2024.htm and "A Church Divided" @ http://libertyadvocate.com/message25.htm. Well, a few weeks ago, Pastor Wayne Blackburn threw out the choir and the orchestra and replaced  them with a “more intense” praise and worship team of worldly reveling led by David Carlyle.  Needless to say, the church is divided by this disorder.  By the way, this is the same Carlyle who is the Director of Student Worship at Southeastern University and leads such singing groups as “New Order.”

One of the excuses Blackburn gave for driving out the church choir and orchestra is that Carlyle cannot read music.  What?  A music director that cannot read music?  It is obvious that the real reason Blackburn drove out the choir and orchestra is to aggressively push the New Church Order. 

 

I have friends who attend Victory Church.  And they are devastated that Pastor Blackburn deliberately and cold-heartedly caused so much pain and suffering to so many devoted to the church. Since the establishment of the church, they have been faithful tithe payers, faithful attendees, and faithful church workers.  One friend shook her head in disbelief that Blackburn, who claims to be a man of God, could be so cruel and heartless.

 

Unquestionably, Blackburn and other "progressive" pastors are progressively and aggressively forming the New Church Order by committing sacrilege in the sanctuary. In other words, "progressive" pastors are helping to create the New Church Order which will usher in the New World Order Church. They bring dishonor and disorder in the church to promote themselves as “progressive” and “modern.” 

 

The music of the New Church Order is loud and fierce.  The yelling and shouting are war cries against the Old Church Order.  Of course, the purpose of the New Church Order is to overthrow the Old Church Order.  We are witnessing a spiritual war of the New Church Order against the Old Church Order.

 

The Old Church Order is Christ-centered.

The New Church Order is man-centered.  

 

The Old Church Order embraces all ages.

The New Church Order centers on youth. 

 

The Old Church Order sings songs that cause us to stand in awe of Him.

The New Church Order wants awesome music.

 

The Old Church Order is Spirit-led.

The New Church Order is man-led.

 

The Old Church Order walks after the Spirit.

The New Church Order walks after the flesh.

 

The Old Church Order is reverent worship.

The New Church Order is rebellious reveling.

 

The Old Church Order is the spirit of Christ.

The New Church Order is the spirit of the world.

 

The Old Church Order is the Word of God.

The New Church Order is the word of man.

 

The Old Church Order is true worship to please God.

The New Church Order is false worship to please man.  

 

The Old Church Order is part of the Kingdom of God.

The New Church Order is part of the New World Order.

 

And modern church leaders push the New Church Order because they are ambitious and greedy.

Modern church leaders covet large congregations that will pay large tithes.

Modern church leaders covet large salaries.  

Modern church leaders covet large church auditoriums. 

Modern church leaders lust after mega-churches.  

So, modern church leaders use marketing strategies to bait us to come to their churches. “And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you” (II Peter 2:3).  For example, to enlarge their audience, they offer profane music to draw sinners.  They offer “Christian” rock music.

But Christian rock worship makes no separation between the sanctuary and the profane place. And God commands that we put a difference between holy and unholy: “And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean” (Leviticus 10:10). By bringing in worldly music to please the carnal flesh, so-called Christians offer unclean worship. They offer unholy worship. They offer rebellious worship. They commit sacrilege in the sanctuary.

Woe unto you, pastors and church leaders who offer profane worship in order to collect more money in tithes and offerings! 

You are blind!  

You are ignorant! 

You are dumb dogs! 

You are greedy dogs! 

“His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.  Yea they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter” (Isaiah 56:10, 11).

Christians must never commit sacrilege in the sanctuary to make sinners feel at home.

 

Irrefutably, when the spirit of the church imitates the spirit of the world, it is an abomination.  It is a profanation of the sanctity of the sanctuary. It is sacrilege in the sanctuary.

 

Some pastors assert that it is a war of styles of worship music, not a culture war.  But the truth is it is a war between Christian culture and pagan culture.  It is a war between holy worship and unholy worship.  It is a war between consecrated culture and desecrated culture.  

 

Again, when the spirit of the church imitates the spirit of the world, it is an abomination.  It is a profanation of the sanctity of the sanctuary. “Thou hast despised mine holy things, and hast profaned my sabbaths” (Ezekiel 22:8). 

 

Of course, the backsliding of the church as a house of prayer consecrated to a holy God to a secularized Christian center to please men has not happened overnight.  If we look back to the 1970s, we can trace the beginnings of the sacrilege of the sanctuary. 

   

To illustrate, in the 1970s my family attended First Assembly of God in Lakeland, Florida.  Karl Strader was the pastor.  About this time, Sunday night worship services were replaced with Christian movies and concerts by Christian entertainers, such as Andrae Crouch.  They were advertised as “free” concerts, but there was a suggested  donation of  $10. This was the beginning of the commercialization and desecration of the church sanctuary. Of course, musicians toured churches to promote the sale of their music.  This was the beginning of the desecration of the consecrated sanctuary to an auditorium for entertainment.  

 

And then during regular worship services, the pastor’s son, Steve, began to beat the drums along with piano and the organ.   

 

And when First Assembly of God decided to build a new church building, it did not look like a church; the architecture of the building – the interior and exterior - was secular like a civic center.  At a glance, you could not tell it was a building consecrated to the worship of God.  

 

And then the audience began singing fewer and fewer hymns and gospel songs; and we sang more and more choruses.  These pop choruses were usually repetitious phrases that were easy to memorize.  Some songs were simple and childish choruses accompanied by hand and arm motions meant to amuse us.

 

And then special music was no longer worship to please God, but a performance to please the church audience.  So, the performances were followed by applause.  

 

And then dress became casual. Men and women began dressing casually on Sunday evening because, after all, they weren’t attending a worship service; they were going to see a movie, or an entertainer.  

 

Even at the young age of 16 years old, this sacrilege in the sanctuary grieved my heart. Finally, I refused to attend First Assembly because of the sacrilege in the sanctuary and Pastor Strader’s heretical preaching: Christians should not tithe on what they earn, but on what they would like to earn; Christians should never have a blue day; illness or disease is a consequence of your sin or the sin of your parents, and other false doctrines.  

 

Then First Assembly moved to another location and became Carpenter’s Home Church.  And that church later divided over false prophecies and false worship and Strader’s false preaching.  Those who left Carpenter’s Home Church formed Victory Church.  It is the same Victory Church mentioned earlier in this message that is now being divided over false worship.  

 

Do you see the progression of sacrilege in the sanctuary?   

 

Do you see the progression of the backsliding of the church?  

 

The sanctuary became the auditorium. . .  

 

And then the congregation became the audience. . .  

 

And then the platform became the stage. . .  

 

And then sinners became the unchurched. . .  

 

And then the service became the program. . .  

 

And then the pulpit became the podium. . .  

 

And then. . .  

 

And today the church grounds are no longer considered holy ground.  The church grounds are a church campus.

 

And now pastors seek to amuse their audience with jokes before or during their sermon.  Irrefutably, Jesus never told a joke while teaching or preaching.  Salvation is serious business.  Souls are at stake.  It affects our eternal destiny: heaven or hell.

 

And now we have Christian comedians and Christian comedic television talk shows.

 

And now we have progressed from pop Christian music to rock Christian music in the sanctuary.

 

A few months ago, a relative from the North came to visit.  And we talked about the church.  She stated that her church back home just built a new wing for the contemporary service.  And this wing is called a community center.

 

Do you see the progressive downfall of the church?  Once secularism got its foot in the church door, it was only a matter of time to get to where it is today – the backslidden church.   

 

Last year, a retired Assemblies of God minister boldly declared that the denomination has been backslidden for about 20 years.  To backslide is to slide back into sin.  Today Evangelical leaders and pastors do not want to leave carnality behind - outside the sanctuary.  Like Lot’s wife, they look back and long for the carnality of the world.  Modern church leaders love the world and the things that are in the world.

 

Jesus plainly and clearly spoke about the love of the world: “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.  If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world” (I John 2:15, 16).  

 

False Christians love the world and the things that are in the world.  

 

False Christians are not heavenly minded; false Christians are earthly minded. 

 

False Christians covet the culture of this wicked world.   

 

False Christians lust after the music of the flesh.  

 

The music of the progressive or modern church is not sacred worship to a Holy God; it is reveling. And reveling is false worship. Reveling means a noisy festivity. It comes from Old French reveler, to make noise, “to rebel,” from Latin rebelare.  And it is one of the works of the flesh (Galatians 5:16-21). Reveling and worshipping are not the same. 

 

Reveling is rebellious worship.  

 

Reveling is loud, fierce and crude shouting and yelling at the Lord God Almighty.  

 

It is common.  

 

It is inferior.  

 

It is low.  

 

It is rough.  

 

It is unrefined.  

 

It is barbaric.  

 

It is profane.  

 

It is ungodly.  

 

It is an abomination.  

 

“Thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?”  

 

We must offer acceptable worship to God.  God does not allow us to invent forms of worship. The Bible repeatedly warns us that self-willed worship is unacceptable to God.  

 

The offering of Cain was unacceptable to God because he offered fruit instead of a blood sacrifice.  “And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering:  But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect”  (Genesis 4:4, 5).  

 

And Nadab and Abihu were killed by God for offering strange fire: 

 

“And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the Lord, which he commanded them not.  And there went out fire from the Lord, and devoured them, and they died before the Lord” (Leviticus 10:1, 2).

 

The fire was wrong because it was fire of their own kindling. They deliberately and wantonly took fire from another source other than the flame on the brazen altar (Lev. 19:24). The strange fire represented their own self-willed spirit rather than the Spirit of God. And God sent fire to devour them.  God struck Nadab and Abihu dead to teach the priests and the people “to obey is better than sacrifice” (1 Samuel 15:22). 

 

God’s will must prevail over self-will. Self-willed worship is offensive to God.  Self-willed worship despises the authority of God.  He “will be sanctified in them that come nigh” to Him (Exodus 19:22; Deuteronomy 32:48-51; Isaiah 5:16; Ezekiel 20:41). 

 

We may not commit acts of wanton and willful disobedience in the public worship of God.  And self-willed worship is a great offence against the holiness of God.  We may not profane the sacred sanctuary by disregarding sacredness and holiness and reverence. Self-willed worship is rebellious worship. Self-willed worship is unclean worship.  Self-willed worship is offering strange fire before the Lord. And Christian rock music - the spirit of the world - is offering strange fire before the Lord.  

 

Christian music must separate us from the daily secular world and invite us to enter the holy sanctuary with a sense of the sacred.  Christian music must be sacred and beautiful. Christian hymns are songs of praise and thanksgiving to God. “Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness” (I Chronicles 16:29). Christian hymns are songs of praise to God, and for God.  In other words, they are meant to please Him, not us. 

 

Moreover, sacred hymns and songs have spiritual depth and are doctrinally sound.  They exalt God with reverence. Sacred music impresses us with the majesty, holiness, greatness, wisdom, and faithfulness of God.  It is reverent.  It is holy.  It is doctrinal.  It is spiritual.  Great hymns are worthy of respect. Great hymns are great music.  

 

But Christian rock music is irreverent.  

 

Christian rock music is unholy.  

 

Christian rock music is not doctrinal.  

 

Christian rock music is carnal.  

 

The main purpose of Christian rock music is to act as a popular medium for false Christians to advance their rebellion against established Biblical doctrines. Christian rock is really rebellion against the established Biblical doctrines of reverence and sanctity.  The real message in Christian rock is a contempt and hatred and fierceness toward true worship and true Christianity.  Christian rock music and worldly worship is rebellion against the command to be separate from the world preached by Jesus and His disciples.

 

In Christian rock, the loud and strong beat of drums often predominates, like the beating of war drums.  And the words of Christian rock songs are generally shallow and primitive and repetitive. Worshippers are more caught up in their fleshly response to the carnal beat rather than the words.  This is the lowest form of church music because the primary purpose of the strong beat and loud singing is to stimulate the flesh. It’s not true worshipping; it’s reveling. The beat is meant to stir the flesh to rebel against sacred music, or Christian culture.

 

Listen, in order for the New World Order to embrace professing Christians, it must rid the church of the doctrines of the gospel, or the faith once delivered to the saints. So, the New Church Order rids the church of hymns and gospel songs because their message is doctrinal and gospel.  In fact, some contemporary choruses are vague as to whose god they are actually worshipping. They do not sing about Biblical doctrines.  They do not sing about the gospel. In other words, many “Christian” contemporary choruses could be sung to any god.  They are words of false flattery to a god.  They praise a god, not necessarily the Lord God Almighty.

 

And the New Church Order assumes the ignorant attitude of youth by pushing modern ways, ideas, or styles just because they are new; and they belittle the past.  The New Church Order is not separate from the world; it's part of the world.  To emphasize, the New Church Order demands that the Church be part of the world.

 

But Paul tells us in his second letter to the Corinthians (II Corinthians 5:14 –18) to come out from among unbelievers and touch not the unclean thing:

 

14  Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?  

15  And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

16  And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

17  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

18  And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

 

There must be a distinct Christian culture that separates us from the profane culture.  

 

You cannot sit at the Lord’s table, and at the devil’s table.  

 

You cannot have the spirit of Christ, and the spirit of the world.  

 

You cannot covet the best spiritual gifts, and covet carnal works.  

 

You cannot follow Jesus Christ, and follow men.   

 

 

You cannot worship to please God, and worship to please men.  

 

You cannot reverence the house of prayer, and commit sacrilege in the sanctuary.  

 

You cannot love the Father, and love the world.  

 

And if you love the Father, the world will hate you. 

 

And Jesus proclaims: If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.  If ye were of the world, the world would love his own:  but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you” (John 15:18, 19).

 

Jesus proclaims that because He has chosen us out of the world, the world will hate us. So, why are Evangelicals desperately trying to get the wicked world to love Christians?   

 

Listen, dear friend, if you feel at home in this carnal world, you won’t feel at home in heaven.   

 

We must rebuke and depart from those who are dividing the Church with their false vision of carnal worship. “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.  For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple” (Romans 16:17, 18).  

 

Again, when the spirit of the church imitates the spirit of the world, it is an abomination.  

 

“Thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?”

 

Unquestionably, "progressive" pastors are progressively and aggressively forming the New Church Order by committing sacrilege in the sanctuary. “Progressive" pastors are helping to create the New Church Order.

 

And the New Church Order is the synagogue of Satan. 

 

And the synagogue of Satan is the New World Order Church, or the apostate Church.  

 

And the apostate Church is the Great Whore of Babylon. 

 

O ye backslidden Church: Repent!
