I saw this short video today and I must say Paul Washer explains exactly what the condition is in most of the institutional churches because of pastors who refuse to shepherd and feed the flock according to the word of God. Read Ezekiel 34 pastors!
The tragic issue of "false conversions" goes hand in hand with the lack of godly leadership in the churches as the video above points out. The Lord has been revealing to me that false conversions are what He was showing me in my dream from 2008 about the violation of the sheep. Click here and here to read both posts I did about the dream.
A fuller understanding of this subject is very important for Christians in this hour where great deception is abounding just as we were warned.
Jesus warns- Mat 24: 4, 5, 10, 11, 24
John warns- 2 John 1:9-10
Please read this excellent series of short articles about "False Conversions" and "Decisional Regeneration" by Gregory D. Metcalf. He has done an excellent job of identifying and expounding on this terrible problem and how it occurs.
Most importantly brethren, I urge each of you to examine yourselves and make sure that you are truly in the faith. I don't say that to offend or frighten anyone into thinking they might not be saved. I say this because it is the most important issue in our life and we must have confidence that our salvation is according to the Bible's standard and not to the standards set by men. Salvation is a work of the Holy Spirit and if there is no regeneration of the old man into a new man, then what is really going on?
In Christ, Sarah
