I ask that in all seriousness. No matter how simple the passage, they always seem to miss the most obvious truths. A recent example is from false teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie in Duck Dynasty Crew Invited To Church.*
No one should be using the name of the Prince of Peace to intentionally tear us apart.
But where does the name Prince of Peace come from? This is the only reference in the Bible:
Isaiah 6:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.
And how can Chuck quote this verse while explicitly denying Jesus’ deity in this passage? And to Chuck, this had to be a false prophecy, but he thinks Jesus is dead. How could He then reign on the throne of David? So why quote the prince of peace portion?
As usual, nearly every biblical reference that these wolves make is theological train wreck.
And even if the verse referred to the kind of peace Chuck thinks it does, how could a radical pro-abortionist like him use it with a straight face? Crushing and dismembering innocent human beings is as opposite of that kind of peace as you can get, yet Chuck supports the Democrats’ official policy of unrestricted, taxpayer-funded abortions.
Run, don’t walk, from false teachers like him.
* Of course, Chuck’s views on Phil Robertson are completely wrong as well. But that is to be expected, as Phil knows that the Bible is the word of God and Chuck thinks it isn’t.
