In this presentation, Brannon plays shocking video clips "pastors" mocking those in their church that want to go deeper into the study of God’s Word. How do hirelings manipulate, marginalize, and characterize Biblical Christians so they either leave their “church” or embrace the unbiblical model of their church? In this presentation Brannon lays out, from the Scriptures, the characteristics of a hireling versus the characteristics of a pastor/shepherd. See the video clip of a “pastor” that believes the church should look to pop culture to address the needs of the community. Brannon explains why churches are not called to look to pop culture and why is it not the calling of the church to reach the felt needs of the community or of unbelievers? Brannon plays a video clip of Rick Warren declaring that the annual campaign is the number one way to grow a church. Brannon then plays a video clip of Warren explaining how he learned about the annual campaign from the communists who had an understanding of how to create converts. Brannon explains why he believes many of today’s hirelings are really promoting a “new kind of Christianity” and “new kind of church” that is based on communism lite. Communitarianism is Communism lite. Brannon concludes this two part presentation with a Biblical response to dealing with the today’s hirelings and the “new kind of church” and “new kind of Christianity” they are creating.
