The progressive churches like Holy Cross Lutheran Church are attacking the Great Commission and the Trinity.
18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” -Matthew 28:18-20 BSB
You can find in Matthew 28:18-20, the Great Commission and the Trinity at the same time. Look at the underline words.
The Great Commission: “19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations…20 teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you.”
Jesus commands His followers to preach the gospel so that many people can get saved, read the Scriptures and live by them.
The Trinity: “19…baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”
Verse 19 uses a singular word (name) to describe three distinct persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God exists as three persons, but all three still being the same God.
Progressive Christianity is a Christianity of apostasy. They are deviating from sound doctrine as found in the Scriptures and denying clear teachings from Jesus Christ. A progressive liberal is a person who claims to be a Christian but flat-out deny core biblical doctrines that makes a person a true Christian.
The reason the progressive Christians (apostates) are attacking the Great Commission is to discourage true believers from preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ to the whole world for their salvation. Where do you think that prohibition is coming from? That’s coming from deceptive spirits. They are also attacking the Trinity, which reveals the nature of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God is in all aspects of our life and the redemption of mankind.
God the Father holds the universe in place by His great power. God the Son dealt with sin by dying on the cross and rising from the dead. Through faith in Jesus Christ, people’s sins are forgiven. God, the Holy Spirit, lives in those who have put their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. The Spirit of God is working in the lives of believers to transform them into the image of Christ. The Spirit uses the Scriptures and prayer to bring us closer to Jesus.
Satan’s new religion is progressive Christianity. The function of this demonic church is to dismantle the faith of Christians to make them stagnant and useless for God and to reject how the Scriptures revealed God. They represent what happens when socialism and social justice seep into the churches. It changes the gospel of Jesus Christ—His death and resurrection—in favor of the culture, which is the world. The true gospel of Jesus Christ is put aside for the social gospel so that it won’t bring people of all nationalities to Christ for their salvation.
If your pastor is becoming progressive, liberal, woke, or even starts denying any core doctrine, run away as fast as possible from it. Find a church that preaches the Scriptures and is faithful to sound doctrine. The message of the cross being front and center.
