Christians partnering with heretical so-called "Christians" for Pro-Life causes.

Brannon Howse posted this today:
Brannon shares how he has been told that if he continues to share from the Bible as to why it is wrong for Christians to unite with false teachers in Gov. Perry’s August 6 event, that includes Cindy Jacobs and C. Peter Wagner, that he will no longer be able to advertise his Worldview Weekend Conferences with a major pro-family organization.
I'm guessing that he's talking about Wildmon's AFA judging by the leadership list on The Response website.  I seem to remember seeing red flags with that organization a while ago along these same lines.  - update - just had it verified that it is the AFA that is threatening Brannon for alerting people to this apostasy.  They are in bed with these heretics, per The Response website, so no surprise there.

Brannon Howse: Aired July 21, 2011
Today Brannon shares how he weeps for friends and Christian leaders that have united with false teachers in spiritual enterprise and how he has been told that if he continues to share from the Bible as to why it is wrong for Christians to unite with false teachers in Governor Perry’s August 6 event, that includes New Apostolic Reformation leader’s such as Cindy Jacobs and C. Peter Wagner, that he will no longer be able to advertise his Worldview Weekend Conferences with a major pro-family organization. Brannon reads from 2 Timothy to explain how he is going to respond and why Christians must prepare to count the cost and endure infliction from Christians that have chosen to unite with false teachers.

I could list the Houston Endorsers but there are many duplicates. You can see the lists of endorsers at The Response website.

I am amazed at how few conservatives see that the demand to cooperate politically really only works one way... in the direction of error. If we demand that those in error just shut up and cooperate with us, they will not.

This is doomed to fail. The answer lies in not compromising the truth of the gospel, and quitting the enablement of the pragmatic compromisers who band together with all kinds of false teachers to accomplish their political goals. So many people think the problem lies in just getting the right laws enacted. But the problem is in the churches themselves, and those same people are unwilling to rock the boat there.
