Intro – Here is Bill Shade with today’s “Moment from God’s Word”.
David Wells in his book, “The Courage to Be Protestant” sums up some of the current theological fads (the Bible word is heresies), by observing that, (and I’m quoting)
- “Howard Marshall thinks the Spirit has liberated us from some of what is in Scripture. (we don’t have to believe or be loyal to that anymore)
- N. T. Wright thinks the Scriptures were never given to function as absolute truth in our world in the first place;
- Rob Bell thinks the Scriptures simply send us on our way to do our own thing;
- Brian McLaren thinks historic faith needs to be de-constructed for post-moderns so that the baggage of enduring truth can be dropped.”
If those statements by Wells seems too strong or unfair, let me quote Rob Bell directly:
“[Jesus] is giving his followers the authority to make new interpretations of the Bible” “It is our turn to step up and take responsibility for who the church is going to be for a new generation. It is our turn to redefine and reshape and dream it all up again.” –REALLY!
I said it before, and I’ll say it again, the New Perspective is nothing more than a Nefarious Pretense and it carries upon it the unmistakable mark of the Anti-Christ. St. Paul says it well, Yea, let God be true and every man a liar. Amen!
