Rejoice Now is an informative Christian site, which looks at different teachings and currents within Christianity. Rejoice Now was founded in 2009 en is being maintained by us, Jos and Regina. We converted to Christ in 2002, are born again and baptized.
Criticizing usually is seen as sowing discord. But where advocates can say anything they please on television, radio and internet, the ones searching out these teachings are being silenced.
We however have the moral obligation to search out what is being said in Jesus Name and to reprove wrong teachings and unbiblical behavior.
Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (2 Tim. 4:2-4 KJV)
We don't want to condemn people, but want to inform people and warn them for heresies which are out there. Criticism on teachers is seldom appreciated, they say you are not to touch (criticize) the Lord's anointed, but in his letters to the churches the apostle Paul mentions peoples names and openly rebukes them.1)
Our hope is that these articles will challenge you to do your own research and test everything comparing to what the Bible has to say.
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 1 Thess. 5:21
