This is a biblical critique I did on the organization known as ARC (Association of Related Churches).
The Bible is not about you. The Bible is also not about me. The Bible is about Jesus Christ (John 5:39-45; Luke 24). It is about who He is and what He has done. Sadly, heretics like Erwin McManus narcigete biblical passages to make the Bible about them. McManus did that in his train-wreck ofContinue reading “100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 3:1-12”
2 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, 2 saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.” 3 When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and allContinue reading “100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 2:1-23”
The Bible is about Jesus (John 5:39-45; Luke 24). One can trace the line of the Messiah throughout the Old Testament. Therefore, if one sees Jesus Christ in the Old Testament, one is not necessarily eisegeting Him into the biblical text; Jesus is already there! I’ve heard people say Jesus came to change the world.Continue reading “100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 1:1-25”
I’ve seen Matthew 7:1 misinterpreted. If people read onwards in this powerful chapter (which concludes Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, a sermon that began in chapter five), one would realize that Christians do judge (see also 1 Corinthians 5 and John 7:24). After all, it would make little to no sense to beware of falseContinue reading “100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 7:1-29”
Have you ever thought that it was God’s will that false teachers be silenced? It’s not a novel thing. After all, Paul, the author of Titus, wrote Titus (like the rest of his epistles) by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:16-21). If God’s Word says that the mouths of deceivers must beContinue reading “100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Titus 1:5-16”
The parable of the sheep and the goats, a parable of judgment, is an awesome parable. Unfortunately, I’ve seen folk butcher it in books (Bob Goff), sermons (David Ashcraft and Jeff Miner to name a couple) and the like. In this text, pay attention to when the judgment takes place. Furthermore, pay attention to whatContinue reading “100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 25:31-46”
I’m currently working on a long article on the Association of Related Churches (ARC). I’m reviewing a sermon by each of the six founders. One of these founders (I won’t spoil for the upcoming article….sorry not sorry) said that the first thing God did was “He blessed.” He must have ripped Genesis 1:1-1:21 out ofContinue reading “100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Genesis 1:1-2:3”
