I want to preface this blog post by saying that I could be wrong on this post. If you know better than me please let me know so I can fix my mistake. There are some things I know for sure and probably a little speculation on my part, which is where I may be wrong but it is educated speculation if there is such a thing. So please be gracious with me and correct me if I’m wrong.
Today’s blog post was actually spurred by this morning’s sermon by my pastor in John 9:13-33. I want to talk about something actually two things we, as Christians, are all called to. These two things are attached though, if we do one we must do the other!
I want to be very clear on this blog post. I most certainly am not responding to this article because I feel any ill towards one I consider a brother in Christ. I have much respect for him and the only reason I’m responding is because I see this article posted on Facebook on a regular basis and I don’t agree with the article. I also know that some will simply reject what I say because it’s in response to someone whom they love. Please hear me out though, I won’t be dealing with everything we agree upon but trying to focus on what we don’t agree upon.
This is the second question I received for my theological question installment. Now I don’t believe I will be able to cover every base in a blog post but I will try to be precise. I also want to say that I have brothers and sisters I love on both sides of this debate. So please be gracious with me if you disagree.
These series of blog posts will all be related in the fact that they are answers to questions sent in by readers. I will not be revealing who the readers are unless specifically asked to. So before I spend too much time on an intro to these posts let’s just get right into the first one. The question sent in was this, “What is the doctrine of imputation? Is it that Jesus actually became a sinner on the cross?” This question is in relation to 2 Cor. 5:21.
2Co 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
Brethren, this may be one of my shortest blog posts. I have two issues I want to discuss in this post and I would like some correction or help in defining these issues. I don’t know every logical fallacy and the two I want to talk about I have never heard defined. I know some may argue with me that these are not considered logical fallacies but I think they are. I will name them here as well.
This blog post will hit an area that is very familiar in America. I don’t know if it’s as rampant in other countries but I know it is very popular here. This area is of the utmost importance but even in sound churches people look over it. The subject I will be dealing with actually is one that if we differ we are not brothers and sisters anymore. The issue is the gospel itself.
This is the second installment of what I have called “golden calves” of evangelicalism. The first installment was about John Wesley and can be viewed here. http://sgapologetics.tumblr.com/post/24923837546/golden-calf-1
This second one is about another one of those “untouchable” famous names in evangelicalism. This one is not a pastor and I believe he did not even consider himself a teacher but the fact remains is he was and still is teaching people with his works. I used to think highly of him before I actually read some of his works. One that is probably his most famous work is “mere Christianity” and what is odd about this work is how the gospel was not central to it. As a matter of fact he teaches the opposite of the gospel in it. Here are a couple excerpts from this very popular book.
Today’s blog post is going to be the first of two posts I have in mind. Both post will be on the same topic but from two different angles. This may turn into more than two blog posts but as of right now I only know of two.
The issue I am raising is on what I call “golden calves.” These are pastors, preachers, and teachers of old who were heretics but are so loved by Evangelicals and often times by Reformed brethren. I actually didn’t know how bad it was until I got a Facebook account. I see quotes from these wolves on a fairly regular basis. I call them “golden calves” because whenever you speak against them you turn into the bad guy, even though they taught damnable doctrines. These men seem to be the untouchables. It blows me away that so many would embrace them. It shouldn’t suprise me because of the times we live in but it surely does. Especially by those I consider my brothers and sisters.
The first “golden calf” I will be exposing is
In light of all the recent news about homosexual marriage I have decided to post a note that I wrote awhile ago on Facebook. It’s not specifically about homosexual marriage but it does mention homosexuality and the reason behind some of it. So without further ado…
