WOLF-SHEEP: Who are they?

wolf2Our enemy is not 5000 miles away.

Our enemy lives among us … in our churches, in our government, in our media, in our entertainment community, and they refuse to wear a sign saying “Enemy”.

sheepThey are wolves in sheep’s clothing.  They wear masks and they serve at the highest levels of all the above in even the “conservative” branches. Until true believers are willing to dig into history and read the Word for themselves, stop goose-stepping, and do their own thinking and research, they will continue to support men who are destroying our lives and others’ lives.

Cults44Cults41Unwittingly? Yes. Innocently? Yes. Naively? Yes. But even those true believers who believe what they are told by those who they think are “fundamentally spiritual” or “politically conservative” are still guilty before GOD.  If you are looking to see who is infiltrating our ranks and turning people among us to Rome, then the list below should help.

SOLUTION:

  1. Search GOD’s Word daily.
  2. Pray to GOD and ask Him to open your eyes.
  3. Read history.
  4. Listen to all men, but do not place any on a pedestal, not “top clergy” or anyone.
  5. Evaluate all beliefs by the Bible, through factual research, not tradition or current culture.
  6. If you want a good starting place for some of the wolves among the sheep, just read lists like the list of the signatories of the Manhattan Declaration.  

“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” – Ephesians 5:11

“Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.” – 1 Timothy 5:20

“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.” – Romans 16:17

“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believes with an infidel? 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. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you” – 2 Corinthians 6:14-17

The Manhattan Declaration is a document that seeks to bring false teachers into an alliance with “protestants”.  Here is a list of some of those so-called protesting “protestants” who appear to court Rome while eloquently piping out sermons for the ears of the innocent, naive “protestant” sheep.

The Manhattan Declaration, located at this link, states: “We, as Orthodox, Catholic, and Evangelical Christians, have gathered …”.  It does not say they have gathered as fellow citizens, but as fellow “Christians”.    It also states: “It is our duty to proclaim the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in its fullness“.   Catholics preach a false gospel of works.  In Galatians 1, Paul the apostle says of anyone who preaches such a false gospel: “Let them be anathema [or damned].”   Those are Paul’s words, not my words.  He also says he wishes they were “cut off” in that same book of Galatians.  For anyone to hold hands in alliance with false teachers, they must disobey Scripture.  Remember John’s words?

“If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that bids him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” – [2 John 1:10-11]

If you are amazed at some of the signers, this is good. It is a great opportunity for you to have your eyes opened to those who seek to bring their followers into an alliance with the Roman enemies of Christ. Also, keep in mind that this is just one list and source.  Watch out for the Grace Coalition, the Sovereign Grace movement, and others as well.  The Sovereign Grace Ministries (who was founded by Catholics) teaches neo-charismatic doctrine and ecumenicism.  Since their decision at Vatican II in the mid-1960s to use seductive ecumenicism to woo their dissenters rather than publicly warring against them, Rome has been busy building ecumenical ties and organizations in all directions, whether they be witch doctors or “Protestants”. Mark DeMoss, founder of DeMossNews.com (where the Manhattan Declaration signers below are housed), is also for confiscating guns, as seen at this link, just like the Vatican who wants to see Americans disarmed (as they did in Nazi Germanyas they state in the article at this link.

You will notice the list includes the powerful Catholic New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan, David Platt (author of “Radical”), Stuart Epperson (Salem Communications), Kay Arthur, Josh McDowell, Jim Daly (Focus on the Family), Joni Eareckson Tada, Jonathan Falwell (Liberty University), Gary Bauer, Tim Keller, Ravi Zacharias, Randy Alcorn, and more including a number of Southern Baptist leaders.
