In anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine [of Christ], do not receive him into your house nor greet him; for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds.

2 John 10-11

While it may come as a surprise to some Christians that they can become guilty by association, nevertheless the Bible teaches that this is the case. Christians are to point out, and to avoid association with, those who teach heresy. By failing to point out the heresy of false teachers, a Christians are like, “the watchman who sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet.” That’s bad enough. But by associating themselves with heretics and unbelievers, Christians actually can share in the evil deeds of others.

This is a sobering thought, one not to be taken lightly.

I bring this up today, because, after reading through the material on the Evangelical Immigration Table website, as well as material about the organization found on other sites, it is hard for me to reach any other conclusion than that those associated with EIT not only have failed to sound the trumpet to warn Christians of the false teaching on immigration offered up by the Roman Church-State, but they have, in fact, received into their house and greeted those who do not bring the doctrine of Christ, both false Christian teachers as well as rank unbelievers.

Put another way, those who lend their names to EIT have sinned a great sin, one of which they have urgent need to repent.

So just how have those affiliated with EIT failed, not only to blow the trumpet when they saw the sword coming, but also welcomed into their house and greeted those who do not bring the doctrine of Christ? There seem to me to be at least three ways: By associating themselves with 1) feminists, 2) false teachers and 3) other infidels.

John RobbinsYou never know what you’re going to find when looking through old computer files. In my case, I stumbled upon this little gem of a quote from John Robbins. Here, with his typical brevity and clarity, he teaches about the crucial distinction between knowledge and opinion.

“I distinguish – as the Bible and Plato do – between three noetic states: knowledge, opinion, and ignorance. Perhaps you do not so distinguish. But why would you not distinguish between knowledge and opinion, or knowledge and ignorance? It seems to me that a refusal or failure to distinguish between these thee states can lead only to greater confusion. Knowledge is always true. One cannot know that 2 + 2 = 5. Opinions may be true or false. Ignorance is neither true nor false. What distinguishes a true opinion form knowledge is an account of that opinion: It is giving reasons. Sudduth dared me to provide any passage of Scripture that so defines knowledge. It seems to me that here are many. For example, ‘Be ready to give a reason…’ ‘To the Law and to the testimony: If they speak not according to that Word, there is no light in them.’ ‘In Christ are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.’ All, not some. Hidden, not available to discovery by men. The Scripture is both the content and the account of knowledge.” (Yahoo Van Til Ring, msg. 373, 1-22-99).

In last week’s post, we began our look at an organization called the Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT). EIT describes itself as, “a broad coalition of evangelical organizations and leaders advocating for immigration reform consistent with biblical values.”

The organization, which interestingly does not legally exist, is really a collection of a number of independent Evangelical organizations that have joined forces to spread the message of, what at times sounds like, the gospel of salvation by immigration alone.

Upon closer examination, it becomes evident that, while the group claims the mantel of Evangelical, the ideas advocated by EIT are really little more than the same sort of globalist propaganda one could just as easily find on the websites of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, George Soros’ Open Society Foundation or the Democratic National Committee. The only difference being that the folks at EIT take the ideas of the socialists, globalists and cultural Marxists, trick them out with a little Evangelical language and attempt to pass them off as somehow Biblical.

A little over 20 years ago I read Chuck Colson’s Evangelicals and Catholics Together (ECT). Doing so proved to be quite a turning point in my life, just not in the way that was intended by the author.

You see, when I sat down to read ECT, I didn’t know very much in the way of doctrine, but I was eager to learn. As I went through the book, it became more and more evident with each passing page that this was not a partnership between Evangelicals and Catholics. Rather, it appeared to be something of a hostile takeover by Rome, albeit one in disguise.

I was so appalled by ECT that I immediately began to look for answers as why, exactly, it was wrong for Evangelicals to unite in ministry with Romanists. It was through this process that God led me to Reformed theology and later to the work of Gordon Clark and John Robbins. Were it not for Chuck Colson, I might never have become a Scripturalist! That’s a rather odd thought when you consider it. If nothing else, it just underscores that fact that God can use the most unexpected things to save and to teach his people.

I mention all this by way of introducing the topic of today’s post, The Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT) and the extraordinary error it makes on the topic of immigration, a subject on which it claims to speak with Scriptural authority.

When one reads statements by the group’s leaders, one finds little difference between their words and those of the prelates of the Roman Church-State, or, for that matter, your average Social Justice Warrior fresh out of college, degree in gender studies firmly in hand.

Apparently, Chuck Colson did his work well. So well, in fact, that on the subjects of immigration, migration and refugee resettlement, there is little difference between the statements made by prominent, supposedly conservative, Evangelical leaders and the press releases of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).

To put it bluntly, many of today’s best known Evangelical leaders really are Antichrist’s useful idiots.
