The apostate church is being groomed through secular humanistic methods such as Diaprax.
“It is better we disagree than be in agreement and all be wrong” J Kesner Kahn
Diaprax is based on the Hegelian Dialect of George Wilhelm Freidrich Hegel (1770 – 1831). The Diaprax is the repeated practice (Praxis) of the Hegelian dialect (dia), in order to achieve gradual, incremental (continual), CHANGE. It is also known as INNOVATION.
The Hegelian Dialect is based on THESIS and ANTITHESIS which in turn leads to SYNTHESIS. Each time this process is repeated, the synthesis becomes the new thesis. For example, when two opposites are fused together a new synthesis is formed).
In practice, this involves mixing truth and untruth together, to move a little bit further away from the truth. This is like mixing paint. When one adds a bit of black paint to white paint, the result is a change in colour from white to grey. If the process is repeated the colour will continue to change to ever darker shades of grey. Eventually the paint will change to black through the “evolutionary” process of adding more and more black paint into the mix.
The Diaprax is a diverse group of people consisting of Christian believers as well as unbelievers (thesis and antithesis), who gather repeatedly over a social issue. These meetings are described as “seeker services”, “Bible study”, “small groups”, and all in the name of church growth. The meetings are facilitated by a group leader (change agent) and the goal of the leader is to achieve consensus (according to a pre-determined outcome). When you mix Christians and unbelievers in this way, and achieve so-called “consensus”, the net effect is nothing less than moving Christians further away from their doctrinal beliefs and statements of faith and belief in the Bible. The “open discussion” uncovers what the objectives (antithesis) are. With genuine participation, a decision does not need to be sold. Suggestions can be incorporated into the dialogue, objectives addressed, and the decision itself (consensus) becomes a COMMITMENT TO ACTION. The logic is that DISSENT (antithesis) is a necessary ingredient for innovation (change technology) and commitment (consensus).
With each cycle of this “change” process, the Christian believer is moved ever so slightly away from his or her rigid position of moral absolutism, to get along with the rest of the group (human relationships). Conflict, chaos or “tension” is a necessary ingredient in this process. The group becomes willing to compromise and to achieve consensus to resolve the conflict because the conflict is uncomfortable. This is based on the occult teachings of Alice Bailey that “unity” becomes possible and the point of balance through the attainment of a point of tension (The Rays and The Initiations by Alice bailey and Djwahl Khul). Without dissent (antithesis) you cannot enter into the dialectic process. This is in direct contradiction to 1 Cor 14:33 ” … for God is not a God of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.”
The Dictionary of Philosophy states that the Hegelian Dialectic ” … is developmental and evolutionary in character and its end point is complete perfection.” This process is seen as part of an evolutionary process of becoming God and reaching heaven without God. The ultimate objective of this process is religious harmony, leading to world harmony, or world peace.
It also explains why there is such a focus on bringing unsaved masses into mega churches. The agenda is to subvert the church through the critical mass of unbelievers under the guise of preaching the gospel to them. It should by now be obvious that seeker friendly churches preach a “gospel” message devoid of the saving power of the true Gospel. It is in fact a strategy and a gospel of unbelief. Rather than being in agreement with the Bible and well established Christian doctrine, Postmodern church leaders prefer to self-validate one another and agree with their secular marketing and branding business consultants. They have started down the path of deception and apostasy and plan to take many sincere Christians along with them. The seditious nature of these movements cannot be overestimated and they fall perfectly into the class of people described in the Bible.
2 Peter 2 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves. 2 Many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned; 3 and in their greed they will exploit you with false words; their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.
17 These are springs without water and mists driven by a storm, for whom the black darkness has been reserved.18 For speaking out arrogant words of vanity they entice by fleshly desires, by sensuality, those who barely escape from the ones who live in error, 19 promising them freedom while they are slaves of corruption; for by what a man is overcome, by this he is enslaved. 20 For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world by the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and are overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first. 21 For it would be better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn away from the holy commandment handed on to them. 22 It has happened to them according to the true proverb, “A dog returns to its own vomit,” and, “A sow, after washing, returns to wallowing in the mire.”
What should be self-evident to any thinking Christian is that this is a slippery slope that leads to divergence from Biblical Christianity. It leads to broad-road religiosity that is devoid of Christ and true salvation. The Purpose driven and Emergent Church initiatives are once again nothing more than Satan posing as an angel of light behind masks of Gnosticism (Emergent Church) and secular humanism (Purpose Driven Life & Church initiatives). Both strategies are designed to seduce born-again believers away from the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to divert them into spiritual darkness and eternal damnation.
It is therefore proper to end on a somber warning from Scripture:
2 Peter 2:4 For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a preacher of righteousness, with seven others, when He brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6 and if He condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction by reducing them to ashes, having made them an example to those who would live ungodly lives thereafter; 7 and if He rescued righteous Lot, oppressed by the sensual conduct of unprincipled men 8 (for by what he saw and heard that righteous man, while living among them, felt his righteous soul tormented day after day by their lawless deeds), 9 then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment, 10 and especially those who indulge the flesh in its corrupt desires and despise authority.
