Re: The Bible Project

Mark 9:38-40

"Teacher," said John, "we saw someone driving out demons in your name and we told him to stop, because he was not one of us."

"Do not stop him," Jesus said. "For no one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me, for whoever is not against us is for us.

While everyone takes the bait and looks at a Christain ministry then thinks, this is cool. Wow, they are spreading the Gospel, Jesus is being proclaimed!

Jesus didn't want us to shut them down totally, or maybe not waste so much time worrying about shutting them down?

Because in another verse we read

Matthew 7:22-23

Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'

Jesus tells His apostles not to waste time in stopping the individual who was casting demons out in His name. But, the individuals find that just because they did mighty works in Jesus name, that isn't what gained them entry into the Kingdom.

The apostle warns his churches For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, as there be gods many, and lords many. This same apostle stated in 2 Corinthians 11:3-4 But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent's cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well put up with him.

Sadly some do, some put up with the others who may come preaching a message. but while that message isn't following Christ we tend to drop deflector shields, we allow them entry only to find out that we are boarded by the Borg.

Also what's up with those two guys in the video?
