A progressive Nashville church is in hot water for claiming the Bible isn’t “inerrant or infallible” and “can’t live up to impossible, modern standards.”
GracePointe Church, led by Pastor Josh Scott, shared an image on Facebook stating: “The Bible isn’t: the Word of God, self-interpreting, a science book, an answer/rule book, inerrant or infallible,” The Christian Post reports.
The church claimed the Bible is “a product of community, a library of texts, multi-vocal, a human response to God, living and dynamic,” adding, “As Progressive Christians, we’re open to the tensions and inconsistencies in the Bible.”
Nationally syndicated radio host Todd Starnes reacted to the story Friday: “It’s kind of a shocking statement but there does seem to be this wokeness that’s infecting modern-day evangelical churches.”
Christian band Skillet’s frontman John Cooper told the Todd Starnes Show “if the Bible is not the Word of God then we have nothing to stand on, we have nothing that is unshakable in our lives and I think we need the opposite message.”
The “Awake & Alive to Truth” author explained: “I think we need to be promoting the Bible is the unchanging Word of God, that is what you build your life upon and you will be unshakable.”
He added: “We have to fight and we have to stand up for the Word of God because people’s lives are falling apart and … God actually has answers for all of these questions.”
A Christian “Church” who does not believe that the Bible is NOT the Word of God is not a CHRISTIAN Church,
It can call itself a Social Justice Center.
It can call itself a Tabernacle of Wokeness.
However, if you devalue the Bible, the Holy Scriptures which are a “two-edged sword” and the key to learning about the foundation of the Christian Faith, then you are studying modern culture and not the history of the Hebrew people and the House of David, from whose lineage came Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace.
The rise of “Wokeness” within Christian Churches is something that is literally tearing apart the fabric of our country.
The only conclusion that I, as a Christian American can reach, is the fact that our Sovereign Nation is in the midst of SPIRITUAL WARFARE for its very soul.
Make no mistake about it, boys and girls, EVIL EXISTS.
My friends, I believe that we are fighting a war against “princes and principalities”. Evil is still alive and well and flourishing in a world in which relative morality and situational ethics are increasingly being accepted as normal behavior.
We see it everyday around us.
It inundates the cable news channels, 24 hours a day. Heck, you can even see it on Facebook.
Since Cain slew Able with a rock, mankind, because we are all fallen creatures, has had to deal with the presence of evil in our lives.
From the legendary massacres, perpetrated by Vlad the Impaler, to the horrific scenes of Hitler’s Concentration Camps, to the killing fields of Pol Pot, to the massacre of innocent Middle Eastern Christians by Islamic State, to the murders by Chicago Street Gangs every night, the Forces of Evil continue to flourish across the globe.
Who we as a nation are struggling with are those forces who want to turn our country into not just an immoral society, but, an amoral one, whose concept of right and wrong is “Whatever Gets You Through the Night (It’s Alright. It’s Alright.)”, and whose ultimate authority is not the God of Abraham, but a Godless All-Powerful Central Government, whose credo is
From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs. (Karl Marx)
Just as Marxism has failed wherever it has been tried before, if the Far Left Democrats have their way, so it would lead to America’s downfall.
The galling thing is the fact that, even though American Christians remain 75% of the population, we are propagandized and suppressed by the Liberals in both the Old and New Media, to make it seem as if WE are the Minority, when, in fact, WE are the overwhelming Majority.
It is this New Generation of Amoral Marxists, who have taken over the Democratic Party, who are in fact, just a tiny, albeit vocal, Minority of America’s population.
So, what can an average Christian American, like you and me, do about this “Tyranny of the Minority”?
Christians have to make a choice in these tough times whether to allow those who are attempting to “radically change” our Sovereign Nation, given to us by God into a Democratic Socialist Paradise or…
As the Apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians, we can STAND.
However, you cannot stand without “the full armor of God”. I have found, as have my family and friends, that the better that you are doing, in terms of your Christian Walk, the harder that you will be attacked.
10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.…- Ephesians 6:10-12
Our Christianity as Americans does not and can not end at Noon on Sunday, as we shake the Preacher’s hand and walk out of the sanctuary (those of us who still get to g and are not “quarantined” at home).
“Onward, Christian Soldiers, marching as to war.”
Because believe me, Americans…we are in one.
Read your Bible…for it is the Word of God.
Pray for our country.
Pray for our Houses of Worship.
And, ask God for Revival in our Sovereign Nation.
Until He Comes,
