The Primary difference between Christian Liberals and Christian Conservatives is this:
Liberals attempt to gain salvation by disobeying the Law of God while focusing on Love. While Conservatives attempt to gain salvation by obeying the Law of God and/or man made rules, regulations and tradition by focusing on the letter of the law.
Both Liberals and Conservatives ignore the Spirit of the Law as expressed in Deut. 6:4 and Lev. 19:18:
“Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, with all thy soul and with all they might. Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”
Christian Liberals walk to the left hand while Christian Conservatives walk to the right hand. Yet Both are legalistically seeking to gain salvation from good works by walking in opposite directions.
And yet neither Religious Liberals nor Religious Conservatives actually fulfill the “Will of God” leaving both groups hopelessly lost. Due to the fact that they are unreachable by the ministrations of the Holy Spirit because they do not feel their need of Christ. Nor can they feel their need for Christ and His Righteousness simply because the Christ within them is in actuality Satan who has transformed himself into an angel of light and blinded their eyes.
These are the “Foolish Virgins” of Matt. 25:1 – 12 to whom Christ will declare that He never knew and to whom He will command to depart from Him because they are workers of lawlessness and iniquity. When they come up to Christ after they have arisen in the Second Resurrection saying,
“Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
