LTRJ Note: The following is a follow-up by Cedric Fisher regarding the Global Church Network (GCN). As Fisher reported last month, GCN appears to be a “New Age Path to ‘Back-door’ Ecumenism”; and while the organization leadership boasts of popular “conservative” Christian leaders such as Robert Jeffress, Gary Smalley, and H.B. London (of Focus on the Family), it also includes New Age sympathizers such as Roma Downey and Leonard Sweet and numerous emergent-type figures. (see Cedric Fisher’s recent article on Leonard Sweet and his role at GCN)
Basically, what is taking place at GCN (and in so much of Christianity today) is a blending together of truth and error. Such a blending is a tactic of our adversary which ultimately leads to a denial and disintegration of truth. In contrast, God’s Word does not blend truth and error but rather identifies each and separates and distinguishes them. We could provide countless examples of where this dangerous blending is taking place today. The Chosen series is one example where millions of people are being drawn into its syncretism of truth and error. Creators of The Chosen admit that only 5% of their creation is actually from the Bible, but they are seeking to convince multitudes of Christians that it’s OK to mix truth and fiction (error). But the Bible is clear on that score – it is anything but OK. Yet, with popular leaders such as Greg Laurie, Jack Hibbs, and Kirk Cameron promoting The Chosen, it is hard to convince undiscerning Christians of the serious problem.
