I am fascinated by modern christian liberal teaching. As christianity’s currency wanes alongside its continued efforts to be appear relevant I wonder at those who have ministries only offering a partial Gospel. Below is a great example. The author seems reasonable, and many, judging by his blog following, are attracted to his theology, but then they would be if there’s no calling to repentance. What secular, christian and other religious observers should note is that when Christianity has been most potent is when the full gospel is preached without compromise. This was the case in the great revivals under the likes of Spurgeon, Whitfield, Edwards and Wesley, as it was under the persecuted martyrs of the early church. First I’ll give you the response to the teaching that comes out of Australia then you can have a gander. Here’s what I said:
“When are you going to pluck up the courage to call people to repentance from sin Graeme? Jesus is not going to fill a God shaped hole in anybodies heart for he is our redeemer, he has atoned for our sin, the propitiation for sin, he who knew no sin became sin. Come on Graeme, all things are possible through christ who strengthens us. Sin separates us from God, the wages of sin are death, call people to repentance and you will be leading your ministry in Christ’s direction.
