“The illusory promises of Marxism never match the reality, especially when the so-called defenders of the oppressed become the most vicious oppressors the world has ever seen. Marxists are all for free speech except when those they oppress try to speak out against their tyranny. When that happens, they quickly silence their critics, take away all their rights, and punish them in the most severe manner possible. There has never been a Marxist nation which did otherwise.”
(Dewey Roberts – The Aquila Report) There is a terrible heresy that is eroding the foundations of many denominations in our time. It is not really a new heresy, but the same old heresy from the past dressed up in new clothes. The architects of this new heresy have learned from past failures. Frontal attacks usually end in defeat. A better tactic is to attack the flanks.
This is what Neo-liberalism does. It is subtle, insidious and dangerous. It is a new form of legalism. All heresies are one form or other of legalism. And the new expression of this heresy is quite subtle because it does not appear at first glance to be opposed to the gospel; however, it is.
There are only two messages in the world: the gospel and legalism. This fact may not be readily apparent to us in the Church. Legalism says, “Do this and you shall live.” (A variation on that statement might be, “Do this or you will die,” which amounts to the same thing.) The gospel says, “Live by faith in Christ and do this.” Legalism and the gospel are polar opposites. This is why legalism in its many forms has been a virulent enemy of the cross throughout Christian history.
