FIRST ASSEMBLY OF GOD First Assembly of God services are Sunday school Steps Of Apostasy Part.00bC by K. W. Cook- I need to backtrack for a moment and remind you of the reason Jude wrote his letter. It was for the purpose of faith - contending for the faith that was once delivered to the saints. Why? Because certain people had crept in unnoticed. They were false teachers who came in secretly, by stealth, they came in through the side door and insinuated themselves among the brethren. They came for one purpose - to deceive. From the beginning wrong teaching about Christ and Christianity came into the church by one of two methods: throug h itinerant preaching or directly from the community of believers itself. Itinerant Preachers were common in first- century religious life, and some of them were, as Paul says in the book of Galatians, "false brothers secretly brought in" their goal was to destroy the real freedom of Christianity and bring Christian's back under the control of law and bondage. Whatever the bondage didn't really matter because these teachers stood to profit both personally and monetarily. There were many who rose among the ranks. They never really believed in Jesus Christ as a personal savior, but saw an opportunity to exploit the true believers, who no doubt in their opinion, were easy to deceive and led astray as a lamb is led to the sheerer. Today, they have fine-tuned the trade. These men and women of yesterday and today are tares among wheat. They are very charismatic in their approach and possess great powers of charm and influence. However, these false teachers have two major character flaws that the apostles and early believers spotted right away and is also evidenced today. First, they use Christian liberty as a natural opportunity for sensual indulgence and debauchery. Second, they deny God and Jesus Christ by distorting the truth of God's revealed word. It's factually true and easily observed that when people deviate from sound doctrine they will often use that deviation to justify ungodliness and moral sin. These teachers .through their dreams create for. themselves a god who doesn't exists. They make for themselves and others a god who condones gross immoral sins and excuses homosexuality, adultery, and fornication. They pursue a god of greed and by smooth words and deceitful speech easily separate people from their money. They place their own seal of approval upon their .actions by saying it's done in the name of Christ and for the glory of his kingdom. They misrepresent the nature, the wisdom, the power, and the character of God. They present God as a personal genie who grants their every desire and is always at their beckoned call. They make for themselves a god who exists to serve their every need and fail to worship him as a holy God who is far above and higher in every way then his created beings. God is altogether different from what we are as human beings. He is a pure and holy spiritual being whose nature and essence cannot be compared in any way or form to the nature of fallen sinful man. When Isaiah saw him, he said, "Woe is me! For I am undone (cut off, Iost),because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts." Isaiah 6:5 And when John standing on the isle of Patmos saw him, he fell at his feet as one who had died (Revelation 1:17). These false teachers are the ones Enoch speaks of. They shall be judged, condemned, and destroyed by the Lord Jesus Christ. Everlasting punishment in darkness awaits them. 9:45 a.m., Children's Church 10:45 a.m., morning worship 10:45 a.m., and evening worship at 6 p.m. Teen choir/drama practice is held Monday at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday Bible Study 6:30 p.m. along with Teens On Track, Kids For Christ and Adult Bible Study.
