Deniers of Biblical Truth Are Not Christians

Never perhaps has the whole position of the Christian faith been so uncertain, and so blatantly and openly attacked even in the church. This makes it doubly important to know what we believe and in whom we believe. It is believing in Him as the Son of God which makes us sons of God, and we alone are His children. These other people arrogate to themselves the name Christian are not Christians.They are liars and deniers of the truth and they are not Christian! We must not fall into this modern error of imaging that the Christian is a nice flabby person who agrees with everybody and everything, who never criticizes. According to the New Testament, these antiChrists are not only to be avoided they are to be denounced. As John says in his first epistle they are not of us for they went out from among us. And for myself I have no fellowship with men who deny the very elements of the Christian faith and who deny the plain teaching of the Word of God. 

~Martin Lloyd-Jones

"Jesus answered and said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you are born again you cannot see the kingdom of God."

"Unless you are born of water and the Spirit you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven." John 3:3,5

Lloyd-Jones said it so well. I too, will not have fellowship, indeed it is impossible to have fellowship with people who deny the very elements of the Christian faith and deny Scripture's plain teaching. 

Those who sit in the hearing of the Bible being read, and then turn around and voice unbelief in it and it's teaching, have openly declared war on the Word. I will not be part of that. And I will not be silent either. In such cases, like in a Bible study or Sunday School class where this takes place, you will hear my voice defend the Truth up and against the heinous rebellion folks so blatantly and unashamedly proclaim. 

Jas 1:19  Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; 

Those who are truly born-again by God, will be quick to hear to the Word and be very slow to speak and to be angry with it, for they value the precious, authoritative, inspired, and infallible Word of God.
