Who are those “people of faith” the Union-Tribune gladly parades as qualified interpreters of God’s word? When God in Christ, in every possible way language can say it, say they alone have the authority to write a book of inflexible moral truth!
What kind of “faith” do “those” people have? Religious, maybe. Ecumenical for sure. Both views posit all opinions in life about everything as equal, none superior; and only complementary to others, not competitive. When God took specific steps to record his word JUST SO humanity would not resort to “do it yourself religion”. What kind of faith is it that exalts human opinion over God’s eternal word? Who lack faith enough to believe God has spoken but possess a superfluity of faith that THEY can determine what he should have said if he had?
They do not have Biblical faith. It believes whatever God says. They don’t have faith enough to believe that God’s word in Moses, the prophets, the apostles and Jesus Christ has the final word in doctrine, behavior and life. But they have superior faith in their opinions as to what is now acceptable sexual behavior—seeking to re-define God to suit culture!
What in their personal portfolio gives them the courage to defy God? Did they have a PRE-EXISTENCE AS GOD, WITH GOD, as Jesus did? Did they come from God, as Jesus did? Did they come from a virgin’s womb, as Jesus did? Have they lived perfectly, as Jesus did? Do they perform miracles, as Jesus did? Can they die to forgive sins, as Jesus did? Do they plan to rise from the dead by their own power, as Jesus did? Or ascend into Heaven, as Jesus did? Or sit at God’s right hand, as Jesus did, as High Priest forever? And do they now plan to tell Jesus they will be the judge of all mankind, as he already says GOD made him?
What credentials do these people of religious, ecumenical, indefinite faith have that makes them arrogant against God? And why would Bible-believing Christians change their allegiance from the Living God and Jesus Christ whom he sent to pledge it to sinners who want to make deities of themselves? Fini
