Why Satan's Lordship Salvation Is Spreading Like Wildfire

Jude 1:1-4, “Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called: Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied. Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.”

I made a truthful meme this week and uploaded it to social media (please share it on social media)...

A ministry friend shared the above meme and sent me this encouraging message on Facebook:
That stuff you posted about that college was excellent, I reposted it and I already got people upset with me. The truth is the truth, if they don't like it they can delete me as friend. I'm not posting stuff to try to get people upset. It's easier to not say nothing and keep harmony but I got to post the truth; that's why this Lordship Salvation is taking over, because people don't say anything because they just want to get along with everybody. Like you said, God wants us to speak out against false teaching. —a ministry friend of mine on Facebook
Bravo! Sadly, 99% of churchgoers today blindly support Bob Jones University and Pensacola Christian College. Both institutions are corrupt, now preaching another gospel of Lordship Salvation. If anyone (like me) dares to call them out, we are shunned, criticized, demonized and ostracized. You are correct, it is because we as believers don't contend for the faith. That is, we refuse to take a stand against heresy and sin, for whatever reason, the problem grows worse.

That is why we are exhorted in Hebrews 3:13, "But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin." The longer people tolerate false doctrine and sin, the more accustomed we become to it, and then before you know it we are in over our heads. That is PCC today. They are over their heads in Lordship Salvation, and too blind and arrogant to see it. Jesus called the corrupt church at Laodicea 5 things: naked, blind, miserable, wretched and poor (Revelation 3:17). Sadly, that is Pensacola Christian College today!

The tragic reason why the Devil's lie of Lordship Salvation is spreading today like wildfire is simply because God's redeemed children are indifferent and complacent. Jude 1:3, “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” Christian men are commanded and expected to earnestly contend for the faith.

Sadly, 99% of believers today couldn't care less about right doctrine, the accuracy of the Gospel, or the purity of God's inspired Word. They're more interested in church barbeques, getting along with everyone, playing church and living the Christian life; but they don't want to suffer reproach for the cause of Christ, they don't want to be put outside the gate with Jesus (2nd Timothy 3:12). Human nature is strange and annoying at best!

Lordship Salvation: The Danger Of Following The Crowd

Science has proven that humans tend to follow the crowd. This is extremely dangerous when you consider that one false prophet can damn millions of people to the Lake of Fire forever. ...
The bandwagon effect is a cognitive bias that causes people to think or act a certain way if they believe that others are doing the same. For example, the bandwagon effect can cause someone to adopt a certain political ideology, because they see that other people in their social circle have adopted the same ideology. —The Bandwidth Effect: Why People Tend To Follow The Crowd
The proudful corrupt leadership at Bob Jones University and Pensacola Christian College combined have influence over tens of thousands of religious people. That is frightening when we stop to consider that both institutions are wrong on God's simple plan of salvation. Lordship Salvation is of the Devil, not the free grace Gospel. PCC and BJU are teaching that same damnable heresy as the Jehovah's Witness cult. I'm not an expert in psychology, but I have eyes and a brain and I've read article by people who are experts in psychology. It is part of our human nature to follow the crowd (aka, having a herd mentality). That is why over 95% of churchgoers today have succumbed to the Devil's fallacy of Lordship Salvation.

The reason why Lordship Salvation and other heresies are spreading like wildfire in the Bible colleges and churches today is simply because God's children don't care. Nobody wants to make waves. Most pastors are afraid to go it alone and offend their ministry peers. I am shocked when I hear a foolish preacher accepting Lordship Salvation as being within the realm of orthodox theology. Listen folks, you either must turn away from your sinful bad habits to get to Heaven, or you do not, but it absolutely cannot be both! The truth is that Jesus Christ paid our debt of sin through Calvary's cross, by the precious blood that He shed (1st Peter 1:18-19).

Salvation is not a reward for the righteous, it is a gift for the guilty! Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith. Turning away from sinful ways would be a work. Faith puts all of the merit where it belongs, on the object of our faith, Jesus and His work. If to “repent” means to forsake our sinful ways TO BE SAVED, but Jesus already paid for our sins by dying on the cross, then what are we repenting from? The true Gospel always points you to CHRIST; a false gospel always points to YOU.
