When I opened the Disrn newsletter and read this article this morning, I almost couldn’t believe my eyes. I thought I was becoming shock-proof to the lack of logic and common sense in our current culture, but this news boggled my mind.
How can a person claim to be a Christian (a Christ-follower), let alone one who is Evangelical, while denying the deity of Jesus the Christ? This is a complete logical disconnect, isn’t it?
For those who argue that Jesus never claimed to be God, I refer you to the Scriptures.
15 “But what about you?” Jesus asked. “Who do you say I am?”
17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah! For this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by My Father in heaven.…Matthew 16 (Berean Study Bible)
So, those Evangelical Christians claiming not to believe Jesus was indeed God incarnate are either following a “good teacher” who was delusional or a liar.
OR they do not believe the Bible is true.
Of course, there are many atheists, agnostics, and followers of other faiths who consider the Holy Scriptures myth or worse, but at least they don’t choose to identify themselves as Christian.
Beware of false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.Matthew 7:15
