Applying Conservative Secular American Culture to the Bible

November 1, 2019

So many Christians do not know how to understand the Bible, they use the secular culture and their feelings to apply Scripture to life. This is why a revival is needed. Truly a call of back to the whole Bible! Praying 🙏🏻 for revival, will you pray too?

Like how we use secular culture aka the 2nd Amendment to explain away Christ’s command to turn the other cheek and lay down our weapons. Or how we use our feelings and emotions to apply to the Bible to oppose abortion yet remain pro-war and pro-death penalty but still call ourselves pro-life. Or how we use the secular culture of capitalism to condemn the poor and social justice even-though Christ sends away the rich empty handed such as:

Battle cry for Christians today:
THE BIBLE INTERPRETS THE CULTURE, THE CULTURE DOES NOT INTERPRET THE BIBLE.
Classical Marxism should never be used to interpret Scripture. What is Classical Marxism? It is the Social Justice Movement.

Or how we use our feelings; emotions; patriotism and secular culture to insist that 2 Chronicles 7:14 applies to America instead of the Israel of 400-250 BC for whom it was written. Or how we use our feelings and secular culture to apply to Romans 13.. Or how we appeal to the secular culture of patriotism to desecrate God’s Altar with the secular symbol of our flag. Or how we call for revivals despite their origins in secular American culture not the Bible. Our American Gospel from the whole Patriot Bible!

The ironic thing is, I would venture to say, that just about everyone in the audience in that recent John MacArthur video (PBUI) practices the same exact thing. That is the American way. Phil Johnson lambasted the entire audience present in the same breath that he piled on Beth Moore. They just didn’t get it – or perhaps they did and it created an uncomfortable moment.

Its also the Bible-believing Discernmentalist way—-help us help others by putting America First!

Emerging Shark Possibly Indentified!

September 23, 2011

“We saw the shark’s nose emerge and then the man just vanished. It was very sudden, then the animal just swam off. ”

Update: Apprising Ken Silva News ReportsEmerging Church Shark spotted swimming deep in the Indian Ocean earlier this morning. Authorities say be on the look out for any sign of “tall hair” breaking the surface of the water in your area. You may also know an Emerging Shark by his or her lack of Doctrinal convictions. Quote Phil Johnson:

“If you happen to read the book [Beliefs of Emerging Churches – Five Perspectives], let me know if Kimball’s chapter strikes you the same way it struck me. Not only does it seem like Kimball has not really thought his position through very carefully; I got the distinct impression he wouldn’t really care to give it much more serious thought. Frankly, the message that comes across in that chapter is that he really doesn’t want to be bothered with doctrine. Like a lot of postmodern church members, he doesn’t seem to have the stomach for propositional theology …

“Even the most conservative voices in the Emerging Church movement face this problem to some degree, because although they might not be self-consciously postmodern in their own thinking, they are too concerned with keeping ‘the conversation’ going. Once someone abandons his or her doctrinal convictions to the degree Kimball advocates and embraces ‘the conversation’ as a primary goal instead, the commandment in Jude 3 (‘Contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints’) becomes next to impossible to obey …”
