Disappearing Doctrine

From Kjos Ministries:

"Growing daily is the cancerous attack on doctrine. In fact THE fundamental mark of liberalism is its constant attack against solid biblical teaching. A growing number of people such as Rick Warren, Joel Olsteen, Benny Hinn, and the many, many others in the worldly ecumenical movement are saying, "Doctrine is not important. God is important. Let's lay aside our petty doctrinal differences and get back to God."

My first question is ‘Which God are you preaching?” But more than that, where is Jesus Christ in all of this and which Jesus are you following?

The number one top and most important doctrine of the church is none other than "Jesus Christ."

"Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him Godspeed: For he that biddeth him Godspeed is partaker of his evil deeds." 2 John 1:9-11 (KJV)

You see, in attacking doctrine, the ultimate goal is to attack Jesus Christ himself.

How many of you have noticed that everywhere you look you hear about “God is Love” and “God is everywhere” and “God is in all of us.” This is all find and dandy, but where is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?

Well, Ray, “Doctrine is Divisive”.

So if doctrine is divisive then what parts of doctrine should we get rid of or change?

Can we do away with the doctrine of the virgin birth?

How about the deity of Christ?

Better yet let’s muck with the death, burial and resurrection of Christ Jesus.

What about the inerrant word of God? Shoot, it is taking place already. We have over 200 modern versions, why not write another? In fact there is even one for sodomites. What is next; the pedophile or bestiality version of the bible? Why not? Doctrine divides!

In fact let’s just go all the way and discount the entire plan of salvation and invalidate all that Christ did for us by dying on the cross for our sins. But you know what; even the blood of Christ is being attacked by calling it a “slaughterhouse religion.”

Folks if you have not guessed it by now, we are focusing in this issue on Doctrine and the lack of in today’s modern church."

I went to University Baptist Church in Miami Fl. for years and even taught there for years and I do not recall even hearing the word doctrine . My family and I tried to teach some doctrine but that was not what they wanted taught.
The problem with doctrine ( from a liberal " christian " perspective ... is there such a thing? ) is that absolutes have to be stated to teach it and that divides.
If there is a true spiritual war ( which of course there is ) going on then I want there to be division ... major division .
I want to know who is a true follower of Christ and who isn't so when the battle gets tough I can depend on them and they can depend on me.
The deceiver is always sneaking in the camp waiting to steal , kill and destroy (Jn. 10:10) so you have to be on the lookout always .
God sent Jesus to seperate His children
from His enemies. God is very selective ..He chooses whom He wants .
When Jesus was on earth and even now He was and is still looked upon as the most divisive person that ever lived to some.
To the unrepented sinner Jesus can be the offensive person ever.
I think some christians who don't want to offend are embarrassing and if they are embarrassing to other christians just think how God looks at them. One has to teach doctrine , if he does not then he is not teaching the Word of God.
