Bud Ahlheim of Pulpit & Pen informs us that popular author, speaker and Bible teacher Beth Moore is scheduled to appear as a “Special Guest” at the Hillsong Conference 2017. Moore and Hillsong’s Brian and Bobbie Houston are movers and shakers in the ravenous wolf camp, so discerning Christians will not be surprised by this; still, we need to be aware of what’s happening in the “Christian” community. According to Ahlheim:
When the imprisoned, soon-to-be-martyred Paul wrote his final letter to Timothy, effectively passing the mantle of ministry to his young protégé, he warned the young disciple about the imminent persecution that would come “in the last days.” The impetus for the coming “times of difficulty” was the increasing depravity of the pagan world.
At the end of the list (2 Timothy 3:2-5) of evidenced evil that Timothy ought to watch for, Paul included the following group in conclusion.
“… those … having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. 6 For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions, 7 always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth. 8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men corrupted in mind and disqualified regarding the faith.” 2 Timothy 3:5-8
Well, guess what?
