Liberal Christianity - a False Religion

In the world of Christianity, there are two camps – the Liberals and the Fundamentalists. One is a false religion.

Fundamentalists: Believe that the Bible is THE direct, from-the mouth-of-God, infallible, preserved Word of God as it proclaims itself to be. Therefore our faith in God, Who we perceive God to be, how we look at the world, Who we believe Jesus is, and what we believe about our purpose here on earth and what we believe about how we obtain eternal life in heaven with God is all based on the Bible. We don’t base our beliefs on our feelings, our wants or needs, the teachings of any man, or societal norms. The Bible is our handbook to our faith, our revelation from God to us. We live by, depend on, and die by Scripture.

Liberal Christians:

don’t believe in the Bible as the literal Word of God
don’t believe in a literal Adam and Eve
don’t believe the Biblical account of creation
don’t believe in miracles
don’t believe in the inspiration of Scripture
don’t believe in the preservation of Scripture
don’t believe in a need for a Savior
don’t worship the same Jesus
don’t believe in the coming Rapture and Judgment

base their beliefs on “feelings”
base their beliefs on teachings
base their beliefs on their own personal agendas
base their beliefs on their own wants and needs

disagree with God on how the earth was created
disagree with God on what is sin
disagree with God on when life begins
disagree with God on what constitutes sexual sin
disagree with God on His ability to preserve His Word
disagree with God on Who Jesus was and is
disagree with God on His requirements for salvation

decide for themselves what in the Bible is true and what is not
decide for themselves Who God is
decide for themselves what sin is and what sin is not
decide for themselves Who Jesus was and is
decide for themselves what Jesus taught
decide for themselves what the Gospel is
decide for themselves what constitutes a Christian

Liberals don’t believe that the Bible is the Word of God. They believe it is inspired, only in the same way that a writer such as Shakespeare was inspired

They don’t believe we have an accurate Bible today (no doubt all the new corrupted versions out today that are based on the Minority texts have helped to confuse them in this area)

Because they pick and choose what they believe from the Bible, they negate any argument they may have with a Fundamentalist who does believe the Bible is the Word of God - because if the Bible is not really the word of God, then who are they to tell us which parts of it are true and which parts of it are not? There can be no intelligent discussion with a liberal about the Christian faith, because they have nothing to base their faith on but their own man-made beliefs.
Fundamentalists may disagree on occasion about the interpretation of Scripture, but all Fundamentalists believe that Scripture is THE WORD of God, and we should strive to be as the Berean believers and search the Scriptures daily, whether things are so.(Acts 17:11)

Liberals have a right to believe what they want to believe. But their faith is not the faith of Scripture. It is man-made. That is not my judgment. That is their truth by their own admission.

It is impossible for both camps to be right.

The liberal’s camp is based on feelings.

The Fundamentalist Christian’s camp is based on Scripture.

The two cannot be reconciled. One is a false religion.

Which camp are you in?


All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.” II Timothy 3:16-17

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” II Timothy 2:15

I don't get why the liberals you speak of would even bother reading the Bible if they don't believe it anyway. What purpose could it possibly serve?

Everything you've said here is true. You have a nice way of being succinct and to the point... I tend to be long winded. And though I've come to realize that none of my hecklers are listening, I still feel impressed upon by God to continue shouting in the wilderness.

Now, I'm no John the Baptist, but I get the distinct impression that I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing... for now.

Brooke,

One must have a little familiarity with something in order to pervert it.

EL,

I feel you are doing great service to the King of Kings.

Ms. Green,

EL is exactly right! God has given you great discernment and talent.
