Piper's Desiring Conference Includes A Heretic, a Heretic Defender, and an Emergent

Desiring (I don't know what kind of )God conference is going on this week. It will be the platform to fit Piper's latest book "Bloodlines". More propaganda. More book selling. More back-slapping. More good-ole-boy-club.

"Joining Piper at this year's conference, titled, "God, Manhood & Ministry – Building Men for the Body of Christ," will be Doug Wilson, Crawford Loritts, Darren Patrick, and Ramez Atallah." ~ Source

Doug Wilson is a heretic who teaches Federal Visionism

Darren Patrick is an Emergent. He was also a panelist at Lausanne Congress in March 2010.

Ramez Atallah is connected to Piper's and Warren's beloved ecumenical Lausanne Congress. Go here for his connection and story of how he got involved in the LC.

Crawford Loritts
Loritts of anti-anti-TD Jakes fame  will be speaking at the Desiring Conference. A racist leaning guy ( "middle aged white Reformed guys" ) and heretic defender, its fitting that he joins the Desiring conference because 1) Piper fellowships with heretics, outright rebelling against the command of 2 John 9-11 and Romans 16:17-18, and Gal. 1:8-9), and 2) fits his social justice book "Bloodlines".

Lorrits who came against Reformers (he says he's a reformer not Reformer, whatever that means), of which Piper and Driscoll claim to be, slaming Reformers for declaring Jakes to be a heretic. Lorrits, revealing his ignorance, doesn't realize Jakes never did repent of his muktiple heresies including his false gospel and defender of homosexual theology apparently. Using 1Cor. 13 to rally Christians around the wolf Jakes out of "love", what he fails to recognize is that 1Cor. 13:6 states that agape love rejoices in the TRUTH and hates wickedness. Agape love would be to hate the heresies Jakes teaches, to reject the man as a Christian, to share the gospel with him, and then to call him to repentance.

Slamming the critics of MacDonald and Jakes for "not coming to the event or considering giving Bishop a fair hearing", he didn't give a fair hearing to the critics either, it seems. Had he done so, and had he truly believed Gal. 1:8-9 and 2John 9-11, he would have supported the critics of Jakes and his cheerleaders, not judge them unrighteously. And by the way, we don't need to sit in elephant dung to know where Jakes is on the doctrine of God and the Gospel; we know by his own words and by knowing biblical truth and therefore HOW to discern error. Besides it was aired later. Had Jakes changed his views, he would have repented boldly, publicly, and repeated on all the media outlets he uses, admitting to finally be saved and rejecting all his heresies. That did NOT happen prior to the meeting. Besides, had he changed his views, what would be the point of being on the show

That's right. Lorrits is judging others for judging Jakes. His warnings are empty because he himself doesn't have enough discernment to know that Jakes has not repented of his damnable doctrine nor therefore, gotten saved.

Loving the world is conspiracy against the Lord. True love will tell a heretic the TRUTH and not coddle him in his damnable error as he skips his way to Hell.

James White dealt with his accusations here since apparently he was thrown into the generalization of "middle aged white Reformed guys").

Gal 1:8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.9 As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.10 For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.

1Co 5:11 But now I am writing to you do not associate with anyone who bears the name of
brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or
swindler--not even to eat with such a one.

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.
