Where is the discernment??

2 Corinthians 11:4 says for if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted you bear this beautifully. Where in the church is the discernment? Where is the church is the contending for the truth, the contending for the faith once for all handed down to the saints?? If anyone comes in and preaches some strange, weird, unbiblical, demonic doctrine, people will just buy right into it nowadays without a thought of where this is coming from. The apostle John in his 2nd epistle says if anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching do not accept him into your home. Disregard it, reject it, if anything comes in the way of a sermon, idea, new teaching, etc. and it does not line up with the Bible do not give any heed to it whatsoever. 
I challenge everyone go to and find out if I am just going overboard with this. If this does not shock you, if what the church in America is doing does not alarm you, please check your pulse. I so not mean to be harsh, but so many people are being led into the jaws of hell by the enemy of God and man who parades as an angel of light. Oh that God would open the eyes of His church, that we would get back to the Bible. 

One of our major problems is that we (preachers) are starving our people from the pulpit. I love the Andy Griffith show, I love the movie FireProof, yet they have no place being preached from the pulpit. I am not talking about taking an example from these shows, I am talking about basing whole sermon series around these things. Whatever happened to the preaching of the Word of God, whatever happened to Christ exalting, God glorifying, Holy Spirit led, Bible based expository preaching??!! Preachers lets be on our face before the God we speak on behalf of and first and foremost seek His forgiveness for starving His sheep. Then lets get to the work of rightly dividing the Word of Truth, for all Scripture is God breathed and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction and for training in righteousness that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. The Bible is enough, lets give God's starving lambs the only thing that is able to build them up the Holy Word of Almighty God!!
