I am viewing this video, sent to me by James Sundquist, a day
after I posted it. Right at the start of it, it states that repentance is necessary for salvation. It is not! Believing in the death and resurrection of Christ, as full payment of our sins, is all that is necessary! Repentance is an "aftereffect" of being saved! We are dreadfully sorry for our sins, ashamed of them, AFTER we realize what Christ has done for us, and how undeserving we were and are of it!
was only evil continually.
It is obvious God did not sin, yet He repented. Thus repenting is NOT turning from sin!
We will continue to sin until the day we die! Not one of us is perfect! Only Christ was perfect, and sinless! Thus, we are UNABLE to turn from sin! But, AFTER being saved, we will not sin as we did before, and in our behavior, the fruit of salvation will make itself evident to any who know us!
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature:
Church of Tares: Purpose Driven, Seeker Sensitive, Church Growth & New World Order

Can the Church borrow the marketing tools of the world and apply them to the Church? What is the history of the Church Growth movement and its false premises? Who is involved in the new evangelicalism and second reformation? Why are these movements embracing contemplative mysticism?
How does this movement play into the New World Order? These questions and more are answered in Church of Tares: Purpose Driven,Seeker-Sensitive, Church Growth & New World Order.
Church of Tares chronicles the man-centered pragmatism of these evangelical
Christian movements in comparison to the Bible's instruction for
building the Church of Jesus Christ. As a sequel to The Real Roots of
the Emergent Church, Church of Tares documents the connections between
the liberal Emergent Church movement and the Church Growth movement.
Both movements' leadership were discipled by business management guru
Peter Drucker, who was attracted to the megachurch movement as a social
phenomenon that could bring about his "new society" and New World Order.
Megacurch pastors Rick Warren and Bill Hybels as well as Leadership
Network founder Bob Buford all acknowledge Drucker (who professed not to
be a Christian) as their mentor and have built their organizations upon
his secular business management philosophies rather than the foundation
of Jesus Christ.
The fruit of these movements is great compromise of the Gospel and the Great Commission. Rick Warren claims to be ushering in a new spiritual awakening and second reformation with
his P.E.A.C.E. Plan. But this reform appears to be a social reformation rather than a spiritual one by joining together in ministry with unbelievers to fight global giants. Such compromise has led to the
affirming response letter to the Common Word document which declares Muhammad to be a prophet and the Bible and Qur'an to be of the "same Divine origin."

"Preaching should be judged by numerical results."
The above is Christ's own dire prophecy!
for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
18 Let no man deceive himself.
If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world,
let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.
For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
20 And again,
The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
By the way, it is CHRIST, the WORD, Who is the Creator!
