Re: The Jesus Seminar
I offer that if you really find out what is so wrong about them, for example see Amos' post above, and use what you know to be WRONG with them...that will expose them! You see, darkness cannot, CANNOT live once its exposed to the LIGHT! Anything abiding in darkness will DIE when the LIGHT comes in. Its just that way.
EXPOSE them. Other people can't or won't fight against them, until they can understand WHY they need to fight them. That's a fact.
The Jesus Seminar is really bad, bad from start to finish. But people need to know why is is so far off course! After all, it sounds so good, to say, "I'm going to a JESUS Seminar." But, if they can learn what's wrong with those people, they will leave them alone. And one person will tell another, and then more and more people know to avoid them.
Yes, we are supposed to warn people about false teachers. But, you see, many don't know truth from error. And especially if the error SOUNDS holy. And 'The Jesus Seminar' sounds nice, doesn't it? Just let people know what's wrong.
My favorite scripture: Malachi 3:16
"Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name!" (Every time we speak of the Lord, or even THINK of him--its written down in a book of remembrance!)
