Today more than ever we seem to be bombarded with individuals who are intentionally attempting to get people to believe lies regarding Christianity, our Lord and Savior and His word, the Bible.
One example is Reverend John Shuck, who ministers at Southminster Presbyterian Church in Beaverton, Oregon. Reverend Shuck claims he doesn’t believe in God yet defends his ‘Christianity.’ He also claims that the Bible is a human product and that while Jesus may have been a historical figure, most of what we know about him is legend. To Reverend Shuck, God is a symbol of myth-making and isn’t credible as a supernatural being or force.
This is just one example that Vic presented of people today who, while standing in their pulpits wearing their religious garb, propose ideas that have nothing to do with the Bible.
The result? A survey of more than 4,000 adults shows that Americans are conflicted regarding Jesus, the central figure of Christianity. The survey showed that the idea that Jesus is God just doesn’t register well with ‘millennials’ (those born between 1984 and 2002).
This edition of Crosstalk also mentioned a new Bible that replaces the name of God with that of rap star Kanye West, Vic retells the story of The Modernist Preacher Entering Hell and callers share their comments as well.
