Affirming the Faith 2015 - shared a pulpit with Dale Manor, Harold Redd and Tommy South
“Moreover Amaziah gathered Judah together, and made them captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, according to the houses of their fathers, throughout all Judah and Benjamin: and he numbered them from twenty years old and above, and found them three hundred thousand choice men, able to go forth to war, that could handle spear and shield. He hired also an hundred thousand mighty men of valour out of Israel for an hundred talents of silver. But there came a man of God to him, saying, O king, let not the army of Israel go with thee; for the LORD is not with Israel, to wit, with all the children of Ephraim. But if thou wilt go, do it, be strong for the battle: God shall make thee fall before the enemy: for God hath power to help, and to cast down. And Amaziah said to the man of God, But what shall we do for the hundred talents which I have given to the army of Israel? And the man of God answered, The LORD is able to give thee much more than this.”
- 2Chronicles 25:5-9
Were the men from Ephraim “brethren?” Yes, they were. Were the Edomites not a mutual foe for both Israel and Judah? Often they were. Even considering those facts Judah could not go to battle with their brethren Ephraim. Why? Because of Ephraim’s error. How is it permissible for Phil Sanders to fellowship with Dale Manor, Tommy South, and Harold Redd at the Affirming the Faith Lectures? How is it permissible for Phil Sanders to fellowship with Jim McGuiggan and Keith Lancaster at the Sunset Bible Institute Lectures? A man of God came out of nowhere to admonish King Amaziah. Some men of God need to arise and admonish Phil Sanders to start opposing promoters of error.
“Those who cry, ‘Peace, Peace,’ while courting, aiding, and abetting purveyors of error [and thereby breaking the peace] are like Satan, who essentially cried ‘Peace, Peace’ to Eve while at the same time betraying her. There is no brother more dangerous than one who seeks to identify himself with sound brethren but at the same time brings into town, gives speaking opportunities to, and defends the liberal! How sad for someone to feel constrained to cry out, ‘Hey, I’m sound too!’ or ‘I am able to get along with and be accepted by both sides!’ Who is following Christ?” (A Comprehensive Study of Unity, p. 104).
