Two-thirds of the way through the first century A.D., Jude wrote this warning:
there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ (v. 4).
Such false teaching dishonors Christ, causes Christians to doubt their faith, ensnares them, and leads them into corruption.Thus, Jude exhorted his readers to contend for the faith (v. 3), persevere in the faith (vv. 20-21), and rescue those misled by false teachers (vv. 22-23).
Today the same dangers require the same responses. When “the faith which was once delivered unto the saints” (v. 3) is twisted and perverted those who “are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called” (v. 1) must earnestly contend for the faith, faithfully persevere in the faith, and compassionately rescue souls who are being led away from the faith.
For over 80 years the American Council of Christian Churches has been a steadfast voice for the fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith, against the apostasy from the truth, and urging the necessity of biblical separation from apostasy and from compromise with it.
We urge you to glorify and honor Christ by ready obedience to His command to “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” Learn from this website what the issues are and how to respond to them. Do your part to rescue souls beguiled by Satan’s ministers (see 2 Cor 11:13–14; 1 Tim 4:1; Jude 18, 22–23). Find out when upcoming ACCC meetings are and attend them.
