The Essential/Non-Essential Doctrine Debacle

Synopsis

The modern, so-called conservative, evangelical church refuses to obey the Scripture. Rather, it appears bent on distorting and disobeying the Lord’s Book—all the while hiding behind the charade of what it carelessly terms “fellowship”. And, this sham is maintained in spite of systemic doctrinal ignorance and/or innate doctrinal divisions within those assemblies.

One of the most efficient engine of destruction in this context is the adherence to the hellish and irresponsible lie of maintaining a distinction between the so-called “essential” and “non-essential” doctrines of the Bible. The modern church, like the Lord's parable of the white-washed tombs, hides its corruption of the Word of God by dividing it into two portions: that which must be believed (the reasons offered for this action vary), and the "optional" remainder. The result is like salt that has lost its savor: it is good for nothing and can only be discarded. (Mat 5.13)

The purpose of this series is to demonstrate from the Scriptures the thoroughly unbiblical and self-destructive nature of this pernicious contamination. The artificial distinction of “essential” and “non-essential” doctrine is one of the forms of leaven that has infected the modern church and rendered it entirely useless to the Lord Christ, His work and His people. As long as it holds to this terrible distinction, the modern church is a nothing more than a waste of the planet's resources.

The series is presented in eight chapters:

  1. Introduction
  2. The Unity of God and His Word
  3. Unity is the Current and Future Relationship of God and His People
  4. Unity of the New Covenant
  5. Fellowship is a State, not a Command
  6. Unity is the Command that Produces Fellowship
  7. Disunity is Sometimes Needed to Purify the Assembly
  8. The Biblical Christian in the Age of the Unbiblical "Church"
  9. Conclusion
