Liberal Christianity in All it’s Acceptable Glory

Have you ever wondered what “liberal Christianity” is and what it’s agenda is?

{Hint… there really isn’t any such thing as liberal Christianity, there is only True Christianity and many kinds of False Christianity.} That being said, “Liberal Christianity” is a way of belief and crosses denomination lines. It is widely found in many American churches and denominations.

There are many markers of “liberal Christianity” with tentacles of truth that are mixed with lies, but 2 of the main ones are….

1. The lie that the Bible cannot and should not to be taken literally. It is promoted as a guide to live by, but not as absolute Truth. This lie is very subtle because it doesn’t deny that the Bible is God’s word. It just questions your ability to understand what God really meant when He spoke about homosexuality, about killing babies, about adultery, about lusts, about drunkenness, about holiness, about obedience, etc….

Liberal Christian thinking vehemently argues that true understanding of Scripture will reveal that God doesn’t judge anyone, and all are accepted and loved by God, therefore as Christians we should do the same. Repentance and forsaking of things the Lord calls sin aren’t accepted as a required lifestyle for those who would call themselves Christian and be accepted as such, but rather a “Fundy” way of interpreting scripture.

This is the first of the 2 main foundations stones that those who accept this thinking use to build their house in the sand. “Liberal Christianity” has to get you to consider the age old question of “Has God really said?” It has to get you to accept the lie that Scripture is open to interpretation based on the days and times we live in and to the feelings of others who call themselves “Christian”. Therefore, absolutes that offend people are not accepted as “loving” and/or “Christlike” and feelings are given much more credence then literal Scriptural writ. {Especially “hurt” feelings.}

2. The second lie is that Christianity is all about “loving” everybody. This type of “love” is about such things as; acceptance for all people, getting along with everybody, social justice, equal opportunity for all, same sex marriage, world peace, etc… It absolutely does not include open rebuke of sin, {unless of course it is to rebuke “old school Christians” for being “unloving” when they declare unpopular truths. Truths such as “Sin separates you from God” or “Jesus is both Saviour and Lord, therefore he deserves and  requires obedience”.}

This second lie is also very subtle because to be “born again” means you die and God imparts His very Nature into you. His nature will indeed move you to both compassion for the lost and love for the brethren. However, good works do not prove you are a Christian. And certainly being accepted by others doesn’t prove Christianity. The ongoing history of the suffering of true Christianity gives witness to that, starting with Jesus Himself.

We are warned of many false prophets, wolves in sheep’s clothing and Satan himself appearing as an angel of light, so we know evil can and does present itself as godly, even through good works.

To sum it up, the main objective of “liberal Christianity” as a message is the same as all false messages, it is to silence bold and clear scriptural Truth. It creates a false god that is to it’s liking rather then worshipping God as He describes Himself in the Bible.

About Geneva

The road in my rear view mirror is marked by hard places. My Guide has been faithful. He came into my life and I was branded. Marked. Labeled. Ridiculed. Judged. Stoned. But the road ahead always looks grand and full of light! The furnaces from the past have only caused the fire of His Spirit to burn hotter. The edicts of man have tried many times to make me bend in worship to him, yet I have met the true Flame who delivers me in every furnace!
