"But whosoever shall DENY
me before men, him will I also DENY before my Father which is in heaven."
Mr. Swindoll flies directly in the face of the Master,
Jesus Christ, by insisting that 'You can Deny Him and He Won't Deny you!' Based
on his erroneous understanding of 2Tim2:12-13. Perhaps he thinks the 'Demon
Possessed' Christian will Deny Christ, as he suggests in his Demonism
(Multnomah Press, 1981)
He wrote: “Can a Christian Be Demonized? -- For a number of years I questioned this, but I am now convinced it can occur. If a ‘ground of entrance’ has been granted the power of darkness (such as trafficking in the occult, a continual unforgiving spirit, a habitual state of carnality, etc.,), the demon(s) sees this as a green light okay to proceed. Wicked forces are not discriminating with regard to which body they may inhabit. I have worked personally with troubled, anguished Christians for many years. On a few occasions I have assisted in the painful process of relieving them of demons. The alien, wicked spirit certainly cannot claim ‘ownership’ of the Christian. He is still a child of God. But while present in the body (perhaps in the region of the soul) the evil force can work havoc within the life, bringing the most extreme thoughts imaginable into his or her conscious
WHERE is Support for this in the Bible? Can Darkness
and Light co-exit? Can a Child of God partake at the table of Demons?
(2Cor6:14-18) You are a SLAVE to who you Obey....Sin to Death or Obedience to
Righteousness! Rom6:16. If the Light in you is Darkness, HOW GREAT is that
Darkness! Matt6:23. The Reason he has seen so much demonic behavior in supposed
Christians, is these people have NEVER Repented and Gotten Clear of their Sins!
Chuck Swindoll is an ecumenist who has spoken at Promise Keepers conferences and other forums that bring together Protestants, Baptists, Catholics, Charismatics, etc. In November 1996, he spoke at apostate Baylor University, which is home to many modernists who question and openly deny the infallibility of the Holy Scriptures. At the July 1994 Promise Keepers conference in Boulder, Colorado, Swindoll entered the stadium on a motorcycle to the blaring strains of the rebellious rock song “Born to Be Wild.”
In his book Grace Awakening, Swindoll teaches that fundamentalists who strive for doctrinal and moral purity are legalists who need to learn grace. He claims that it is legalistic to make prohibitions against immoral movies, dancing, etc. Actually Swindoll redefines grace as a form of license. Biblical grace teaches us “to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts” and calls upon us to “live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world” (Titus 2:11-12). To live in such a manner requires constant judgment and the most extreme caution pertaining to all forms of entertainment, etc. We are to love not the world neither the things that are in the world. That is a VERY narrow walk. Calvary Contender editor Jerry Huffman observes that Swindoll’s book leaves “the impression that rules or restrictions upon the believer steal from him the exuberance and joy of the Christian life and relegate him to a morbid and dreary existence.”
Is Doctrinal Purity Obedience
to the Bible? 1Cor6:9-10, Eph5:5-7, Clearly spells out certain types of behavior
that will disqualify you from the Kingdom. 'Let no one Deceive you with empty
words!' (like Swindoll) In Scripture the Old Man is crucified with Christ in
Repentance, Rom6:4-6. This is Done once for all, NOT to be repeated. The
Passions and Desires of the flesh are put to death with Christ, you do not live
in a wretched condition, as the Chief of Sinners.....as Swindoll
implies......Avoiding the Error of the Wicked is precisely what Peter warned us
about, 2Pet3:19. the same folks that Promise people liberty while they remain
Slaves to their own corruption! 2Pet1:18.
Swindoll says that the only freedom from Sin for the Christian is when they die. Yet the Bible says that the LAST enemy defeated is Death, 1Cor15:26, but under his gospel 'Death' would be the Christian's friend. In truth the Bible teaches that Sin Shall Not have Dominion over you, Rom6:12. And the Commandments of the Lord are not some 'morbid and dreary existence', His Yoke is easy, Burden light, Commands NOT grievous! (Matt11:30, 1John5:3)
