Biblical Missiology has taken a clear stance that the Insider Movement and C5 contextualization are syncretistic, serious deviances from the Christian faith as taught in the Bible, and therefore false doctrine and teaching. Harsh words that we take seriously as being necessary and true. We have felt that the evangelical church has remained ignorant and in some cases, put their hands over their eyes and actively ignore this issue, allowing it to eat away at the body of Christ.
It has been our desire and mission, to inform our readers by writing articles that dig deep into the Word of God, revealing that long-held biblical Christian truths have clear ramifications on missiology. We believe we are equipping the saints to use the Word of God as an instrument to combat errant views of Christ, the Church, and our Faith. This is vital in missions, where we send out missionaries to proclaim the gospel. This proclamation must be truthful and accurate. For the unreached this initial contact is their first exposure to the truths of the Word of God. Thus, we are equipping the saints to educate their friends and family in Christ, and hopefully giving their church information on this dangerous false doctrine and teaching so that the church can act by educating their flock, making sure their missions is 100% in alignment with the Word of God, verifying that their missionaries are using the Word of God properly, and that mission agencies are also supporting their church’s beliefs and not promoting false doctrines and teachings in training or on the field.
It is heartening to us that we do see more and more churches taking an active role against false doctrine and teachings, and proactively confronting it, protecting their fold from wolves in sheep’s clothing.
The following is a video created by one such church that with all its heart, with the same Holy Spirit propelled zeal Christ had when he cleansed the temple of the deviants, has taken up the vital task of fighting the false doctrine and teaching of the Insider Movement. Pastor Tim Snell of Christ’s Church of the Valley, made this video as a call out to all other evangelical churches to awaken, and to take a stance on a very real, active, and growing false doctrine and teaching in the church today.
Keep up the good work you pastors and elders, who in shepherding your flock, proactively keep them away from false doctrines and teachings, educating your flock in the Word of God, and having discernment in things such as these.
*Update* The church Christ the Rock, spoken about in this video who endorsed the Jesus in the Quran seminars has issued a statement on C5 contextualization. You can find it here along with an analysis by Pastor Tim Snell as to its biblical rootedness.
