Michael Horton White Horse Inn
The Bible is clear that the GOSPEL is distinct from WATER BAPTISM (1 Cor. 1:17). The Gospel is that "... Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures. ... That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed" (1 Cor. 15:3b-4; Rom. 10:9-11). Baptism then follows as a symbol or testimony of our
identification with Christ (1 Pe. 3:18-21).
Michael Horton Westminister SeminaryPower Religion is subtitled The Selling Out of the Evangelical Church. We think it is Horton who has sold out. Again, the big names are not targeted. Instead, some of them are the authors of the book's individual chapters! (Others have apparently been deemed untouchable by the book's neo-evangelical publisher, The Moody Bible Institute's Moody Press.) Called on by Mike Horton to author chapters in Power Religion are ecumenical, neo-evangelical, Catholic-sympathizers Charles Colson and J.I. Packer (both of whom signed the ECT document -- see section below on "The Roman Catholic connection"); pop-psychologizer R.C. Sproul; psychological integrationists Don Matzat, David Powlison, and Ed Welch; and some lesser known names affiliated with the neo-evangelical, psychologized Trinity International University/Evangelical Free Church of America (Don Carson, Bill Hull, and Tom Nettles). The book purports to be a critique of Christian activism ("Power Politics"), the signs and wonders movement ("Power Evangelism"), the church growth movement ("Power Growth"), psychology ("Power Within"), and personality cults ("Power Preachers"). Yet Horton claims that we can still learn something from the purveyors of these heresies! Michael Horton teaches a false sacramental gospel, he has exhibited a fondness for the psychological gospel and those who teach it, and he supports ecumenical efforts with Rome. Horton and the various ACE ministries should be avoided.
