hey everybody , recently i have been reaching out to non-denominational Christians to try and spread Catholicism and her fullness of truth. I spent the last 6 months studying the culture,beliefs and teachings of the New Apostolic Reformation group , my friend Jake a charismatic christian follows them.
Jake was taught that satan is in the courts of heaven based on the teachings of Robert Henderson , he also talks about the 3rd and imaginary 4th heaven. Amongst many things that were never taught by the church fathers . No amount of scripture that i use can ever convince him otherwise.
- am i dividing the church of Christ? i even called his church to complain. The pastor they brought in taught in his own church that Jesus performed miracles as a man in right relationship with God and not as God( phillippians 2). So much do i sound like the accuser.
2)would the desert fathers’ practise of not correcting others but good for me? I found myself always wanting to correct him with scripture which does not work. He would just gloss over them. I got even more angry because he gives no honor to our saints yet holds his earthly pastors in higher esteem.
3)What practical steps can i take to maintain christian unity without compromise to truth. Jake’s church seem to be taking steps in christian unity with lil focus on doctrine and dogma resulting in a marketplace.
