Syncretism


For although they knew God, they neither glorified Him as God nor gave thanks to Him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools… (Romans 1:21-22)

Satan has led many religious groups to unite around a mixture of religious teachings and then brand honest Christian believers as bigots for clinging to salvation in Christ alone.

Many people today no longer believe in absolute truth. The widely held view is that there is good in every religion and all roads lead to heaven. Individuals then choose the elements they wish to believe from whatever faith and mix them all together. This is syncretism.

Satan is delighted when people believe and expound on his lies.

He does not want anyone to know the truth and come to a personal relationship with Jesus.

Jesus is the way and the truth and the life (John14:6).

Jesus is the only way.


Let us guard carefully against the deceptions of Satan leading to syncretism.

Oh Lord, help me to fix my eyes on You and Your Word today so that I will not stumble.
