Although some attempt to define the hybrid church as being one that embraces technology and the promotion of interactive worship, their claims do-not meet the definition of hybrid. Technology is merely a resource to be used to advance a service, product, purpose, or vision. Interactive worship is nothing new; the bible encourages us all to participate in worship.

Hybrid simply is defined as a person or group of persons produced by the interaction or crossbreeding of TWO UNLIKE CULTURES, traditions, etcetera.

Therefore, within this article when we describe “the church and the world” merging together, it means to fuse two value systems of different cultures which creates a hybrid church.

Presently, within today’s church culture, many emerging Christian leaders are being conceived in a “hybrid church climate” where the landscape of conception consists of an intermingling of two unlike cultures (the church and the world). This present landscape is not only responsible for conceiving emerging Christian leaders but is equally responsible for seductively seducing and polluting the minds and hearts of some established leaders causing them to validate and sanction the “delusional hybrid church model.”

Within the current hybrid church, many who profess the name of Christ are the product of crossbreeding between the two unlike cultures (the church and the world), while alternatively, some individuals who have not been conceived in the fusion church climate are being converted to adapt to the amalgam inclusionistic value system.

This can explain why a large number of so-called Christians cannot and do not see anything wrong with the practice of outright brazen sin or the dumbing down of God’s word, because they were either conceived in an admixture church that endorses the integration of the Church and the world or they have been converted by pressure to become relevant or “culturally correct.” The hybrid church is committed to the notion that you can “have fun being a Christian” (which is code many times for being in the world and still be apart of the church). This approach makes being a Christian more palatable for those that desire to partake of both cultures.

The genesis of the hybrid church and its design are purely satanic and governed demonically to fulfill its desired goals, which are to mislead and distort the faith of God’s people and communicate a brand of counterfeit Christianity (the church and the world coexisting for the inclusion of all men).

The delusional hybrid church is comprised of:
• the acceptance of same sex marriage with openly gay leaders and parishioners:
• the refusal to address sin:
• the acceptance of half-truths:
• the establishment that gain is Godliness:
• the resistance of sound doctrine:
• the promotion of self induce empowerment for selfish gain:
• congregants obsessed with financial prosperity, personal blessings and individual destiny:
• allowing or permitting savage wolves to work among the sheep:
• the merging of all religions:
• the elimination of biblical repentance:
• and judging nothing but accepting everything, just to name a few.

It is important to understand that often these practices are performed concurrently or in conjunction with exercising many bible truths and good deeds, which becomes an effective smokescreen and a lure to draw its victims, while at the same time pacifying their conscious to be willing participants. The underneath current of the hybrid church is to function in an ambiguous manner all while bearing the rejection of Godly absolutes and purportedly demonstrating good works and appealing to man’s unstable emotions— which causes them not to even consider or reconcile the merging of the two unlike cultures.

As repugnant as the results are today from the functionality of the hybrid church—the future offspring of this model will not even compare to its former generations if this spiritual apparatus is not challenged head on by righteous men and women of God. The incubator of the hybrid church will be responsible for producing highly professional false prophets, corybantic Christians, with “severe corrupt theology” harboring paganism as the norm. This model will rise to the rank of being a hyper-elite form of Christianity causing men to debate its positions with confidence among society with an established acceptance.

The marriage covenant between the church and the world must be severed and an aggressive return to The Lord Jesus must occur. The actions and decisions we make today will determine the outcome for tomorrow. Our failure to address the apostasy in today’s church will definitely have a pernicious impact on tomorrow’s church. Don’t let history record us as forsaking future generations because we refuse to sacrifice.


And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: (2 Thessalonians 2:11)

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers [do not make mismated alliances with them or come under a different yoke with them, inconsistent with your faith]. For what partnership have right living and right standing with God with iniquity and lawlessness? Or how can light have fellowship with darkness?

What harmony can there be between Christ and Belial [the devil]? Or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever?

What agreement [can there be between] a temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God; even as God said, I will dwell in and with and among them and will walk in and with and among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.

So, come out from among [unbelievers], and separate (sever) yourselves from them, says the Lord, and touch not [any] unclean thing; then I will receive you kindly and treat you with favor. (2 Corinthians 6:14-17)

Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world. (James 1:27)

Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. (James 4:4)

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever. (I John 2:15-17 NKJV)

Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. (Colossians 2:8)

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. (Ephesians 5:11)

If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. (John 15:18, 19)

They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. (John 17:16, 17)

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. (Romans 12:2)

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. (I Corinthians 2:12)

Do not marvel, my brethren, if the world hates you. (I John 3:13)
