Why Michael W. Smith is God's Enemy
...and a BIG PHONY!
By David J. Stewart
Michael W. Smith is NOT a Biblical Christian! His website tells nothing of his doctrine position or beliefs. Good luck nailing down what he believes. Contemporary Christian Music [CCM] singers do this ON PURPOSE, so that their music will be appealing to a wider market base, spanning across denominational barriers, and spitting in God's face!
Ecumenicals are woefully ignorant, unsaved, religious people (2nd Timothy 3:5). They errantly redefine the God of the Bible by limiting Him to being a God of love and unity, and nothing more. Hell, judgment and eternal punishment are missing in their music and teachings. They redefine God to fit their worldly, carnal, selfish view of life; totally rejecting the doctrine of Biblical separation in 2nd Corinthians 6:14-17. Ecumenicals seek to unite everyone, even if by error; rather than dividing over truth as the Bible commands (Galatians 1:9; Romans 16:17).
Satan uses ecumenicals like Michael W. Smith to unite unsaved heathens, preparing them to worship THE BEAST when he comes. Don't believe it? Ecumenicals are in bed with Satan. Let my tell you buddy, if you're music is so vague and watered-down doctrinally that Catholics, Mormons, Charismatics and Jehovah's Witnesses all praise your music; then you're in league with the Devil.
Here's a Jehovah's Witnesses website praising Michael W. Smith's music...
Here's a Catholic website praising Michael W. Smith's music...
Here's another Catholic website praising Michael W. Smith's music...
Satan is pleased with Michael W. Smith, leading everyone to worship a god that fits any religion. Jehovah's Witnesses deny the Godhead and Christ's deity, but they're ok with Michael W. Smith's music. Catholics require the keeping of Seven Sacraments to get to Heaven, and absolutely mandate that a person be water baptized into the Catholic Church or else they cannot enter into Heaven. That is what Vatican 2 teaches, the official doctrinal statement of the Catholic Church since 1964.
Here's a concert of thousands of fans singing along with Michael W. Smith that GOD IS AN AWESOME GOD; but his fans are from every religious background, unbelievers and believers alike. There is no difference between the two. This is what the Ecumenical Movement is all about, i.e., BLURRING THE LINES between Biblical Christianity verses false religions that lead humanity into the fires of Hell forever (2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9).
From a heathen and carnal perspective, Michael W. Smith's music sounds great; but from a Christ-honoring Biblical perspective, Smith's music is helping the cause of Satan, blinding the minds of men from the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ (2nd Corinthians 4:4). Michael W. Smith is a worldly singer, employing religious lingo into his music, but not teaching anything truly doctrinal.
Straight to the point: Michael W.
Smith is a sell-out who exploits Christianity to make a lot of money for him
and his producers.
Catholic Movie Hires Michael W. Smith To Compose Music Score
The 2002 religious film titled JOSHUA starring Tony Goldwyn and F. Murray Abraham is 100% pro-Catholic. And to no surprise, because the film is based upon a novel written by a Roman Catholic priest!!! The fact that the producer hired Michael W. Smith proves that Smith is a wishy-washy compromiser, an ecumenical apostate, and the enemy of God.
Albeit a very well made film, the film promotes the evil Ecumenical Movement. Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) is the biggest promoter of the Ecumenical Movement. Music is one of Satan's most powerful weapons against God.
CCM all-star Michael W. Smith composed the music score for the film JOSHUA, which features the music of Third Day, Jaci Velasquez and other apostates. This is why I expose Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) groups like THIRD DAY, who are unequally yoked with the demonic Catholic church. Truly the love of money is the root of all evil (1st Timothy 6:10). These men don't love the truth, or else they'd stand for the truth of God's Word as I do. There is a Hell friend, and Roman Catholicism will lead you there very quickly. The actor who plays Father Pat is Kurt Fuller, who recently played the role in the filthy Hollywood movie, GROUP SEX.
Anything goes with the world. Nobody dares step on each other's toes. It doesn't matter what each other believes, if it feels good do it. CCM artists are as phony as can be. You'll NEVER find a mainstream CCM artists who shares a clear gospel presentation on their website. They all preach the same crap of inviting God into your life, opening your heart so God's love can fill it. That's a demonic message that hinders people from coming to the true Biblical gospel. Hundreds-of-millions, if not over a billion, people errantly think they're going to Heaven because they've surrendered all to God. As Christians we are commanded to love one another, but we are also commanded by God to HATE EVIL (Psalm 97:10).
Smith and all the other CCM artists falsely claim to love God, while hobnobbing with Roman Catholics and everyone else who has no Biblical convictions. James 4:4 warns that to be a friend of the world is to be the enemy of God. FoxNews reporter Sean Hannity is Roman Catholic. Michael W. Smith and Hannity are going on an ocean cruise together with hundreds of invited guests in the summer of 2012. They're all in bed together serving the Devil through ecumenism. They don't really care who they rub shoulders with, because they take no Biblical stand for God.
I mean, if you believe that there's a real Hell where Christ-rejecters will burn forever, why would you remain silent about it? I warn people because I care. I don't want anyone to go to Hell. The Bible plainly teaches that self-righteous works are a false gospel which cannot save. Roman Catholicism is a prisonhouse of religion and a path straight to damnation in Hell. The Bible does not teach Sacramental Salvation. Eternal life is a free gift (Romans 5:15; 6:23), which is received freely (Revelation 22:17) without works of self-righteousness (Romans 4:5-6).
Please read, WHERE THE BURDEN RESTS IN SALVATION!
Stacy Edwards (who plays Maggie) also stars in the film and at 19 minutes into the film you can see that she's not wearing a bra. Her nipples (teats) are showing through her blouse. The movie is G-rated. Evidently it's no longer considered inappropriate for a woman's breast nipples to be visible through her blouse. Biblically it is a sin, promoting lust and lasciviousness. It is immodest dress, which is disobedience to 1st Timothy 2:9. Any woman who doesn't see the harm in showing her breast teats is either a total idiot or a wicked woman who doesn't care what God thinks.
Religious Rock concerts, Catholic mass, immodestly dressed women, praising the Pope, Jesus playing pool in a bar, Jesus saying “You suck at pool!,” Jesus telling the Pope that the main message is to tell people to “open their heart so my love can fill them”... that's the bull-crap Ecumenical Movement!!! The Pope is the vicar of Hell.
“You cannot make God cool, hip, and acceptable to the world.” —Pastor Danny Castle
Michael W. Smith is super mega popular all around the world for his musical abilities, composing songs and singing voice. Smith's music is even used in Independent Fundamental Baptist churches across America, shamefully so. Michael W. Smith hob knobs (rubs shoulders) with Mormons, Roman Catholics and anybody he comes across in the music business.
Look at the concert poster to the left. Michael W. Smith yokes together with Catholics instead of separating from them as the Bible commands as you just read in 2nd Corinthians 6:14-17. Matt Maher is a Roman Catholic worship leader and minister in Mesa, Arizona. At the parish Maher teaches the catechism and the sacraments, as do all Catholic ministers.
Do you see what the Devil is trying to do?
Satan is trying to get God's children to yoke together with Satan's
children. This was the woeful sin of Balaam, the prophet for hire! Balaam
led God's children to marry the unsaved heathens and it brought God's curse
upon the nation. Michael W. Smith is dangerous spiritually to churches
today, because he is an ecumenical bridge between evangelicalism and Roman
Catholicism. The consequences is that many churches are changing and dying
spiritually, embracing a false gospel of works salvation. A church is not a
church just because they hang out a sign. A church must strive lawfully
according to the Scriptures. Any religious group that doesn't follow the
teachings of the Word of God are a cult instead of a Biblical New Testament
Church. The Bible must be
the final and only Authority of the New Testament Church!!!
The Globalist Elite's Number One Agenda: Population Control
The number one agenda of the Global elite is Population Reduction. It is sad, but true, that many Christians think it's a good idea. What gives you or I, or anyone else, the right to decide who should be able to have children or not? Max Lucado, Third Day, TobyMac and Michael W. Smith are all going on tour around the country as of the fall of 2010. Do you know who is sponsoring them? World Vision, a bogus religious organization that is a front for Population Reduction.
Population control is a top agenda with elite Globalists and the CFR (the CFR created the United Nations by the way). Notice at the top of the advertisement below that World Vision is sponsoring these CCM apostates...
“WORLD VISION” SUPPORTS POPULATION CONTROL
March 2, 1999
WASHINGTON, DC (Life Site News) - World Vision, a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability, calls itself “the largest privately funded, faith-based relief and development organization in the United States.” Despite its popularity and respected image, however, World Vision is generating criticism because of its support for population control.
A 1995 World Vision policy document called “Health and Healing,” reported that “World Vision will supplement governmental and other NGO [non-governmental organization] efforts in making modern family planning methods available to the couples. ... These include copper IUDs, pills, and condoms.”
Furthermore, according to a recent article in WORLD, an American Christian magazine, an internal survey of the organization last year revealed that “all responding NOs [national offices] are engaged in some type of family planning-related activity, either as a straightforward family planning or reproductive health project or buried within child survival, maternal health, or women's health activities.”
WORLD also notes that $55 million of World Vision's $241 million revenue last year came from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) — a group notorious for promoting population control in the third world.
I don't want any part of any organization or group that thinks they are superior to others and have the right to decide who can have a family or not. There's not one Scripture in the Bible that tells us to worry about population control. In fact, Jesus teaches us the exact opposite...
Luke 12:28-31, “If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith? And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
It is unbelievers and wicked men who worry
about too many people on the earth, and a shortage of food, and oh my, what
will we do? God has given the earth enough food for every one. God does not
allow people to starve to death, people allow other people to starve to
death by their greed and selfishness.
Catholics are Going to Hell
Why doesn't Michael W. Smith warn the Catholics that their false religion is cursing them to Hell, fire and damnation (Revelation 20:11-15)? It's because Smith only cares about the praises of men (John 12:43) instead of the praise of God. John 12:43, “For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.”
As I have shown you earlier, Catholics have no problem with Michael W. Smith's music. Smith's website doesn't tell anyone how to go to Heaven. Smith has produced over 20 albums, none of which have ever led anyway to Biblical Christianity. There's no doubt that Smith's music attracts RELIGIOUS people and apostate churchgoers; but Biblical Christianity means being born-again, not joining a religion.
His music sounds like U2 or other heathen bands. Smith's lyrics are virtually meaningless. Today's CCM scene is pathetic, influencing hundreds-of-millions of fans without ever presenting the true Gospel to any of them. What is the true Gospel? 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 defines the Gospel as the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Christ died, that's history; Christ died for me, that's salvation!
But the true Gospel EXCLUDES all forms of self-righteousness. You will burn in Hell forever if you add even one self-righteous work to your faith. The hard core Gospel is that all Catholics are going straight to the Lake of Fire when they die; because they are trusting good works, the Sacraments, water baptism and the wicked Catholic Church to save them. They have rejected the Commandments of God to keep their own manmade TRADITIONS instead (Mark 7:6-13; Romans 10:3-4; Matthew 7:21-23). Salvation is as easy as getting on the ark.
The Bible is so abundantly clear on this
matter. Salvation is a gift that does not, and cannot, involve any
self-righteousness (Romans 4:5-6). God rejected Adam's fig-leaf religion,
and He'll reject your
Catholic dunghill of religion as well. God slew an innocent animal to
provide clothing for Adam and Eve, representative of the Messiah, the Lamb
of God Who taketh away the sin of the world.
Max Lucado of the Church of Christ and Michael W. Smith, Apostates!
Michael W. Smith's apostasy doesn't end with Catholics; he is also in bed with the demonic Church of Christ minister, Max Lucado. They have traveled extensively across America touring together, bringing their apostasy to a cult so-called church near you.
Max Lucado is a false prophet, who plainly teaches that a person MUST be water baptized to get to Heaven. This false doctrine of devils is known as “Baptismal Regeneration,” i.e., they believe that water baptism regenerates (makes a person born-again). This is what the heretic Martin Luther taught, which Lutherans still hold to today because they are fools. But the Bible teaches something VERY different. Biblically, we are born-again only by faith in Jesus Christ, the Word of God. 1st Peter 1:23 teaches that we are born-again by the Seed of God's Word.
Max Lucado is a best-selling Modernist (an unsaved phony who claims to be a genuine Christian) author and well-known minister. Lucado has written 60 books with over 30 million copies in print, and currently serves as senior minister at Oak Hills Church (formerly Oak Hills Church of Christ) in San Antonio, Texas. Lucado was named “America's Pastor” by Billy Graham's apostate Christianity Today magazine and in 2005 was named by Reader's Digest as “The Best Preacher in America.” He has been featured on The Fox News Channel, NBC Nightly News, Larry King Live, and USA Today, and a bunch of other worldly demonic shows.
Tragically, Max Lucado is an ecumenical false prophet, who teaches the Church of Christ's false doctrine that salvation comes only after baptism. Lucado deceitfully claims that he doesn't believe in Baptismal Regeneration; yet he teaches that water baptism is essential to being saved...
"Baptism effectively seals our salvation."
"In baptism God signs and seals our conversion to him."
Baptismal Regeneration is a demonic doctrine of devils, a works-based salvation. The Bible NEVER tells anyone to be water baptized in order to be saved. Max Lucado teaches that baptism seals our salvation. That is not what the Bible teaches. The Bible teaches that those who BELIEVE are sealed with the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 1:13, “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise.”
Lucado falsely teaches that water baptism is an initial sign of being saved. There is NO such teaching in the Bible...
"True believers not only offer their sins, they yield their wills to Christ. Baptism is the initial test of a believing heart."
So according to Max Lucado, refusing to be water baptized is a clear sign that a person has never been born-again. The Bible does NOT agree with Mr. Lucado at all. What about fasting, prayer, tithing, and all the other commands of God. Does it mean that a person is not saved if they're not willing to obey God in all those areas?
Max Lucado is a false prophet. Eternal Life is a free gift, paid for by Jesus' literal precious blood. The mindset of a genuine born-again Christian is JESUS PAID IT ALL. And I don't owe Him anything. Eternal life is a free gift, with no strings attached. You come as you are, and believe on Christ for forgiveness of sins (Acts 10:43). Christ died, that's history; Christ died for me, that's salvation!
Now the Bible teaches that we are bought with a price (which is Christ's blood); but the Bible pleads with us as a reasonable expectation, since Christ did die for us, to live for Him. 1st Corinthians 6:20, “For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.” But this is a reasonable request from God; not a proof of salvation or a requirement to be saved. God the Father will save any ingrate who comes to Him by way of His dear Son Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins. In fact, the only type of person that God saves are ungodly sinners. Romans 4:5, “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth THE UNGODLY, his faith is counted for righteousness.” Max Lucado is a false prophet for requiring water baptism as a sign and seal of salvation.
As a result of Lucado's deception, naive churchgoers have embraced Mr. Lucado's heresies...
“Christians of all denominations have embraced Lucado's work. He has written more than 50 books - with more than 39 million in print - including his latest, 'Come Thirsty,' (W Publishing Group) which came out last year.”
Max Lucado's teachings are dangerous. Lucado was a speaker at the 1995 Christian Booksellers Association (CBA) Convention. Lucado gave a call to unity among Christians across denominational lines. Likening Christians to sailors on the same boat with “one captain” and “one destination,” Lucado urged acceptance between Protestants and Catholics, Baptists, and Presbyterians (Reported in the 12/95, Fundamentalist Digest).
Max Lucado is an unsaved Modernist who is actively corrupting America's churches. Any minister who promotes acceptance of the damnable Catholic religion is of the Devil. The Devil is using ecumenical ministers to promote sinful compromise between believers and the unsaved. The Word of God commands us to divide over truth, rather than being united by error (2nd Corinthians 6:14-17). God wants us to “sharply” (i.e., with authority) rebuke them (Titus 1:10-13). That's what I am doing by God's grace. We must expose these imposters and wolves in sheep's clothing (Matthew 7:15) for who they really are (i.e., Satan's ministers, 2nd Corinthians 11:13-15).
Romans 12:1 commands believers NOT to be conformed to this world. Michael W. Smith (like all CCM artists) are building a bridge between the world and Christianity, bringing different religions together, blurring all the lines of sound doctrine and denominational separation. Their primary goal is to unite Protestants with Catholics, along with Baptists and Charismatics. Satan needs everyone on the same page, thinking alike, in order for the Antichrist to be readily received when He comes. This is why CCM music, corrupted Bibles and Ecumenical preachers are all so vague (i.e., lacking any definite boundaries, doctrines or beliefs).
Although Michael W. Smith does
use some religious terms and phrases in their songs, he FAILS to give a clear Gospel
presentation anywhere. Take a look here at Michael W. Smith's
official website and I
triple-dog dare you to show me how to be saved. Show me even a simple
presentation of the Gospel. You cannot! The reason is because every CCM
artists KNOWS that they'd lose most of their fans immediately if they said
something to offend any religious group.
Where's the Gospel?
Just like all other Modernists (i.e., an unsaved phony who claims to be a genuine Christian), Smith refuses to present a clear Gospel presentation on his website. The reason why is obvious, i.e., because they don't want to offend anyone. By NOT stating their beliefs, they draw the largest marketing base of listeners to purchase their music. This is what the Ecumenical Movement is all about. Ecumenism is the sinful uniting of Christians with unbelievers (2nd Corinthians 6:14-17).
As my pastor used to teach... One sick person plus one healthy person equals two sick people! All of Billy Graham's yoking Protestants with Catholics has led to a bunch of unsaved apostates, who don't know what they believe. Today's apostates are woefully ignorant of THE TRUTH. They have rejected the truth! All they talk about is love, unity and touching people's lives; but Jesus said you MUST worship God in TRUTH or else it is in vain. The Apostle Paul said all his labors would be in vain, worthless, if he failed to hold forth the Word of life (Philippians 2:16). That Word of life is the Gospel according to Ephesians 1:13.
Michael W. Smith doesn't stand for anything,
he's out to make a buck. Where's the Gospel? What does he believe
doctrinally? His music is a bunch of wishy-washy, mumbo-jumbo, that appeals
to every religion from Catholics to the
Church of Christ. The fact that Smith goes on concert tours with Max
Lucado, a Church of Christ minister, says it all... Smith is an apostate, an
unsaved Modernists who will join anyone to make a buck. Of course, the
Ecumenical crowd will deny all this; but God ponders their hearts and they
will be very sorry when they stand before God in eternity with nothing to
show for their wasted lives.
Michael W. Smith's Music is Vague, Ecumenical and Apostate
Let's be very honest, people only praise and support Michael W. Smith because he has a nice voice and good musicians playing being him. His music sounds good, so people don't care about anything else. But God cares about whether or not people are going to Heaven or Hell when they die.
Do you know what is wrong with this generation. You've got people coming to religion out of nightclub lives, prisons, mental institutions and the lowest places in life one can go; and so they think Michael W. Smith, Benny Hinn and Pat Robertson's 700 Club are legit and of God. Then those lost souls find a website ministry like mine and freak out, having difficulty dealing with THE TRUTH of God's Word. The truth seems like hate to those who hate the truth. I am telling you the truth. Michael W. Smith is a fantastic singer, carnally-speaking; but the Biblical truth is that Michael W. Smith is helping Satan prepare people to follow the Antichrist when he comes, who will WORSHIP THE GOD OF FORCES...
Daniel 11:38, “But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.”
In these Last Days, we see massive religious concerts, millions of apostate people praising a god, but they don't know who that god is. Jesus told the Samaritan woman at the well in John 4:22 that she and her people didn't know what they worshipped. And Jesus told her WHY... because God must be worshipped in TRUTH. God is not worshipped in heresy. Smith's concerts are packed with Catholics who worship Mary instead of Jesus. Every Catholic will lie through their teeth in denial, claiming that they don't worship Mary; but then they pray every Rosary, chanting “Hail Mary” 53 times without mentioning the name of Jesus even once. What a bunch of liars! It is more than innocent deception. Jesus said in Mark 7:9 that they FULLY REJECT God's Word.
Smith's songs start out sounding like they're about God, and his devotion for God; but then end by his praising some girlfriend or feelings of affection for some woman. The songs are so vague and void of any Christian meaning that they are Satanic masterpieces, i.e., Satan uses them to inoculate people from finding genuine Christianity. It is so tragic that many Baptist churches idolize Michael W. Smith's music, especially Southern Baptist Churches (of which hundreds-of-thousands of men are members of occult Freemasonry, as was their one time Chairman, George W. Truett (1867-1944).
Your church is spitting in God's face if you
support Michael W. Smith's music. Smith has used
occult symbols on many of his album covers.
Michael W. Smith Supports the Dirty Communist Martin Luther King Jr.
Ecumenicalists totally disregard any doctrinal differences; because they don't care about THE TRUTH. The purpose of ecumenism is to establish a One-World religion, leading everyone to worship an ambiguous, one-size-fits-all, undefined god. Martin Luther King Jr. openly denied Jesus' deity, bodily resurrection and virgin birth (and is burning in Hell this moment); but people don't care because their priorities are sinful, unbiblical and selfish to fit their own agendas. King had religion; but he didn't have Jesus. King was involved in over 60 Communist front organizations intended to subvert American society; of which was birthed from the Civil Rights Movement, abortion, feminism and homosexual movements. Communism aimed at a total breakdown of morality in America, and succeeded. Satan is a beautiful liar!
King's widow, spent the remainder of her life fighting for rights for
homosexuals. Some “reverend” King was huh? King and the “reverend” Jesse
Jackson have both been featured guests in Playboy magazine. To no surprise,
Michael W. Smith
supports the Communist Martin Luther King Jr. and his Communist holiday.
They eliminated the holidays of U.S. Presidents, to just call it
“President's Day”; but that
dirty, stinking bum Martin Luther King Jr. (part
2, MP3) has his name on a holiday that promotes
(which has totally destroyed America's
economy if you have
any clue as to what is happened over the past 100-years in America.
Pawns in the Game for a more in-depth look at the evil, mass-murdering,
thieving banker-controlled, New World Order's history and workings.
Rise Up Oh Christian! Rise Up for God, Soul-Winning and Righteousness!
Ecumenicals are in bed with Satan. One man on fire for God who tells THE TRUTH like it is, is worth more than 10,000 deadbeat neo-evangelicals who do nothing but chant, “Our God is An Awesome God” for hours on end; but never go soul-winning, nor contend for the Christian faith, nor get mad over public wickedness, nor get upset over the indoctrination of children with DEVILUTION. Phooey on that kind of dunghill churchianity!!!
God said in Ezekiel 22:30, “And I sought for A MAN among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.” God always raises up a man; not a group or committee, but an individual man! God is looking for a man to stand in the gap in prayer before Him for America!!!
Let my tell you buddy, if you're music is so vague and watered-down doctrinally that Catholics, Mormons, Charismatics and Jehovah's Witnesses all praise your music; your in league with the Devil. All Ecumenicals talk about is unity and love, rejecting the Biblical position than anyone who rejects Christ as Savior, or adds self-righteous works to their faith, or corrupts the Gospel, is going straight to Hell when they die, forever.
I am sick and tired as phonies calling themselves Christians, but their music is so vague and wishy-washy that any religion feels comfortable with their music. Don't be a lying deceiver! Stop using the name of Jesus if you're not going to warn Catholics that good works is a road to Hell. Every hellbound Catholic believes that Jesus died, was buried and rose again. So then I guess according to John 3:18 they're all saved, right? They all believe on Jesus, so they claim. That is why Billy Graham says they are Christians. But they are all WRONG! Ephesians 2:8-9 must be taken into consideration as well, and Romans 3:20, and Titus 3:5, and Romans 11:6, and Romans 10:3-4. The Biblical Gospel EXCLUDES all forms of water baptism, self-righteousness, holy mass, keeping of Sacraments, prayer. All God requires is that we BELIEVE on Jesus. Christ died, that's history; Christ died for me, that's salvation!
Satan is a liar and a deceiver. Repeatedly the Word of God warns us about deceivers who will come to us as wolves disguised in sheep's clothing (Matthew 7:13-15; 2nd Corinthians 11:13-15).
I am not trying to be unkind. I do not condemn anyone, for the Bible condemns all of us as guilty, dirty, rotten, hell-deserving sinners (Romans 3:19); but as a born-again believer who loves Jesus Christ I am supposed to stand for my God (Psalm 94:16; Ephesians 5:11; Jude 1:3; Romans 16:17). And so are you by the way! This is why 2nd Timothy 3:12 says, “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.” Michael W. Smith suffers no persecution because he carries no cross for the Lord. If you carry a Bible the world will give you up (John 15:19).
People get mad when you speak the truth, causing either revival or riot! I am very loved and very hated; loved by those who love THE TRUTH, and hated by those who hate THE TRUTH. That's why I defend the King James Bible as God's INSPIRED Word, because it is THE TRUTH (John 17:17; 6:63). It all comes down to what you are going to do with the truth. Hosea 4:6 tells us the Israelites rejected truth, and so God rejected them. James 4:4 says that if you are a friend of this world, then you are God's enemy. Choose sides (Joshua 24:15). Isaiah 45:9, “Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker!”
I plead with you to come out away from the world, get you a King James Bible, and start contending for the Christian faith. One of the great joys of the Christian life is contending for the faith, defending the truth, uplifting the name of Jesus. This life is all a test. God is seeing what we will do. God says in 2nd Chronicles 7:15 that His ears and eyes are attentive and He is waiting for us to humble ourselves, pray, seek His face and turn from our wicked ways.
It's time for true Christians to stop supporting ecumenical ministers like Michael W. Smith. Whether he realizes it or not, Marilyn Manson certainly does, a singer is a minister and his fans are his congregation. A concert is a form of a religious service. Doctrines are being taught and messages conveyed. Michael W. Smith has everyone mesmerized, singing “Our God is an awesome God”; but they're as brain-dead, apostate, and ignorant concerning the Doctrine of Christ as can be. As the church becomes more worldly, so also is the world becoming more churchy. It is a shame!
Michael W. Smith is a wishy-washy, mumbo-jumbo, ecumenicalist; and is the enemy of the cause of Christ. If Michael Smith thinks God is such an “awesome God” as he sings, then why does he treat God like garbage? Why won't Smith warn sinners of the wrath to come? I'm sick of Contemporary Christian Music [CCM] singers, some shameless lesbians, who have influence over millions of souls, saying it's not their job to get anybody saved because they're not preachers. They are woefully ignorant of the Bible and rebellious against God. Psalm 126:5-6 and Proverb 11:30 teaches that all believers are to be soul-winners. It is the OFFENCE of the Gospel that brings men to salvation (1st Corinthians 1:21; Galatians 5:11); and not the attractiveness of worldly music.
Michael W. Smith is just another money-making masquerader who vaguely sings about God—who attracts ignorant, self-centered, selfish and even self-righteous religious people toward his selfish, self-centered and self-righteous music. Instead of refuting the false doctrines and deceptions of Roman Catholicism, Smith caters to them.
CCM singers wrongly define the meaning of love as sinful compromise and unequal yokes between believers and unbelievers (which 2nd Corinthians 6:14-17 prohibits in the Bible). Ephesians 4:15 says, “Speaking the truth in love.” Love is treating others the way we would like to be treated (Matthew 7:12). Wouldn't you want someone to tell you if your home were on fire? Well there's a Hell that burns with fire where those who fail to obey the Gospel will spend eternity (2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9). CCM singers shirk off their duty to preach the Gospel, expecting someone else to do it. 1st Corinthians 9:16, “woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!”
“You cannot make God cool, hip, and acceptable to the world.” —Pastor Danny Castle
