Deconstructing Christianity – Nothing New
By Louie Marsh, 1-26-2022
Introduction to this:
- I heard about this so-called “deconstruction” movement just recently. I hadn’t known it was a big thing now days.
- However, being old and having studied church history, both of which most deconstructionists can’t claim for themselves, I immediately recognized what was going on here.
A Little History:
The idea of deconstructing your faith is anything but new. It’s been going on for centuries and has come in several waves. What we are seeing today is just the latest version of this.
- Ultimately this is a dead end street because the only real information we have about the life of Christ are found in the New Testament.
Deconstructing the Deconstructionists:
The author is a self-described medium. That means he seeks to allow spirits to speak through him. Supposedly contacts the dead, etc.
What does the Bible say about mediums? “31“Do not turn to mediums or necromancers; do not seek them out, and so make yourselves unclean by them: I am the Lord your God.” (Leviticus 19:31, ESV)
“19And when they say to you, “Inquire of the mediums and the necromancers who chirp and mutter,” should not a people inquire of their God? Should they inquire of the dead on behalf of the living?” (Isaiah 8:19, ESV)
“20idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, 21envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” (Galatians 5:20–21, ESV)
“8But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”” (Revelation 21:8, ESV)
Keep this in mind as we go through this article.
Of course there are different Jesus’s running around the landscape. There always have been and always will be till the real one comes back again.
“3But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ. 4For if someone comes and proclaims another Jesus than the one we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it readily enough.” (2 Corinthians 11:3–4, ESV)
