The culture does not annul the Law of God; God’s Law stands whether the culture stands or not. What you are getting from the Cult of Liberalism is what is known as moral relativism.
Do you understand that; moral relativism, which means you get away with whatever you think in your heart you can get away with…in effect, the end justifies the means…
And you’re right back to the Jesuits; the end justifies the means. No, it doesn’t. [There were] an awful lot of dead bodies in the Inquisition because they thought the end justifies the means—Jews and Christians…
[The Cult of Liberalism] is theologically corrupt because it is Bibliologically corrupt. It denies the authority of Scripture; it ruins its own theology.
And it ends in immorality because the only way you could have gotten to this homosexual, morally relativistic garbage—which is today in our denominational structures—is if the leadership of those denominations denied the authority of the Scriptures and Jesus Christ as Lord.
That is the only way you got there. And there is a remedy for this my brothers and sisters. The remedy is to start asking questions. Start demanding definitions of terminology. Start insisting thst people tell you what they’re giving to before you give them a dime.
Examine the people that occupy the chairs of theology in the seminaries, and if they are not given to the historic Christian faith—out with the rascals. Examine you churches, your sessions, your Baptist boards—and everything else—and find out who is in the Faith.1

I miss the original Bible answer man. Dr. Walter Martin was a man on the cutting edge of current Christianity. After having several encounters with Jw’s i purchased his book “the kingdom of the Cults.” It is an authentic evaluation of many cults that are flourishing today.
I have worn out his tapes.One of the neatest experiences he shared was when he stood on a street corner in New York city and had posted a ten thousand dollar prize if any Jw theologian could disprove his point on John 1:1 where Jw’s claimed it said He was a god. they never took him up on it.
What a man of the Word, who could prove his points and his belief.
As a young man, “The Kingdom of the Cults” was also one of my first study helps. There were many Mormons where I lived and Dr. Martin’s book was very helpful. I wasn’t aware of his tapes, but I remember the Bible Answer Man well.
Once, I drove an hour to hear him speak at a large church. The topic was Mormonism. Before it started we were all asked to leave the church and an announcement was eventually made outside that Dr. Martin wouldn’t be speaking because of a bomb threat.
He returned several months later to the same church where the police had checked for explosives and the first thing that Dr. Martin said was that he appreciated the assistance of the local authorities. I taped that meeting. And I lost it somewhere over the years.
It’s interesting that you should mention John 1:1. It is the verse that I go straight to when having a discussion with JWs. I’m sure it is probably because of Walter Martin.
He certainly was a man of the Word. I miss him.
