I hope that some of you are taking the time to listen to the breakouts from this summer. There is a lot of good stuff on there. Not many of you probably attended the session on Theistic Evolution, but it would a good idea for you to go back and listen to it.
The reason why I’m bringing this up is because it’s becoming more and more popular for Christians to question whether or not the beginning of Genesis should be trusted. Of course, if I say it like that, there’s no way that you would think that any Christian would agree to it. But it’s happening. In an online newspaper post last week, Karl Giberson, a professing Christian professor and speaker, basically said that the Bible is a collection of books some of which are history and some of which are fiction. Can you believe this?! Fiction! He’s saying that we can pick and choose what books we want to believe from the Bible. Which in turn makes us the ultimate authority on what truth is… which means that we are the ones acting as god.
This is what is being taught as Christianity in our culture today and we need to make sure that we are properly understanding the Scriptures. God has revealed Himself to us in a way that we can understand in the Bible. Be diligent to, “hide His Word in your heart”. And be careful because there are many out there who claim to be Christians and even Christian leaders who are false teachers.
