Today, I’m writing to warn all of you against a dangerous heresy that is being taught against the truth. You have already heard, no doubt, of the dangerous and pernicious lies that are being spread abroad by those claiming to have found new light in the Scriptures. Indeed, when warned of the danger of his heresy by the leadership of the church, the leader of these men chose to be defiant, burning their letter of rebuke. This is not the behavior of a good churchman, let alone a true minister of the Gospel.
Besides, have you considered his language? Perhaps he deserves the title of Cussing Pastor. Mockery falls from his lips as he hurls invective against God’s ordained ministers. A man of God would not speak as he speaks.
The Scriptures teach us that all things should be done decently and in order. The Scriptures teach up to submit to those that have the rule over us. This man does neither. I have it on good authority that he will soon be excommunicated, and that will be the end of the matter. But still, be cautious of this man and his teaching. He is a danger to right doctrine and, indeed, to the health of your souls.
There are those who will tell you otherwise, but they speak lies. Trust me on this. Do not heed the words of Martin Luther. He is just the latest in a long line of heretics. He will trouble us for now, but history will not remember him.
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you build the tombs of the prophets and decorate the monuments of the righteous, saying, ‘If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’ Thus you witness against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers.” (Matthew 23:29-32)
