What Part of "Mark And Avoid" Is Unclear?

Well, it looks like the pirate and the centurion are continuing their unholy, unedifying, carnal and fleshly tweeting (the custom of Reformers). Neither one can biblically deal with supporting a false teacher like Piper, but they sure do love to used their forked tongues to slice discernment bloggers--the very people who have exposed their treachery against the King and His children.

Mike Ratliff has exposed the error of Frank Turk and John Piper. With Chis Rosebrough dropping by to give compliments to Mike, while accusing the rest of us for a supposed "tone" which he apparently is above every using (his own Sacred Sandwich and Pirate Radio would never mock anyone), he didn't and still won't deal with the issues we brought up consistantly. I find it interesting that a complaint of "tone" is usually brought up when someone's error has been exposed for what it is. Its a converstation stopper, only it doesn't work with those of us who are tenacious for the Truth.

Again and again, the questions are put forth without a biblical defense:

Why are we to tolerate those who side with the enemies of Christ? Why is that somehow considered good, when God says its bad?

What part of DO NOT RECEIVE INTO YOUR HOUSE OR GIVE A GREETING to those with a false gospel/doctrine is not being understood by the Pirate and the Centurion?

What part of “mark and avoid” is unclear? How can a Christian Hedonist not read the clear Scripture and simply obey such commands?

Since when is Justification by faith alone debateable?

Since when is Pelagianism considered Christian?


Rom 16:17 Now I urge you, brethren, keep your eye on those who cause dissensions and hindrances contrary to the teaching which you learned, and turn away from them.18 For such men are slaves, not of our Lord Christ but of their own appetites; and by their smooth and flattering speech they deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting.

*Keep an eye on such men AND turn away from them* Is this not a command to keep a careful watch and then reject such men? Or is this a mere suggestion to be obeyed IF you feel like it or when its convenient? Certainly Scripture does NOT teach “truth in everything”.

2Jo 1:9 Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting, 11 for whoever greets him takes part in his wicked works.

Again, Scripture teaches to REJECT THE MAN who brings false teaching, not parade him around, defend him, and give him a platform to the Lord’s people. Or again, is this merely a suggestion to be tossed if you like your Paper Pope more than Christ and the souls of His people?
Piper not only greets the heretics, he has them teach his audience and promotes them.

2Ti 3:1 But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come.2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,3 unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good,4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,5 holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these.

Notice “avoid such men” command. Or is this a suggestion? Is this not a command from the King?

There’s no defense of what Piper has done, nor of defending the Piper defenders. It only goes to show that people who claim biblical doctrine don’t really have discernment and wisdom to see and love the truth and the God of Truth at all costs. Their loyalty lies elsewhere and its not with Him.

Frank Turk is a crass obnoxious bully, and Chris has become one too. It's shameful.
