Great, simple reasons to trust the Bible and why the “Christian” Left follows a fake Jesus

“Christian” Leftists, including the “Red Letter Christian” leaders, pretend to follow Jesus but disagree with him at every turn. This was from an article about why we should trust the entire Bible, but the final point made it clear why the “Christian” Left worships a false Jesus.

This seals the deal. Here is it is an a nutshell: since Jesus rose from the dead he is God, therefore, his view of the Bible is the right one. Jesus believed the Bible was divinely inspired (Mt. 4:2; Mt. 22:31-32), authoritative (Lk. 4; Jn. 10:34-36; 12:47-48); powerful (Mt. 5:17-18; Jn. 6:63; Jn. 17:17); and about him (Lk: 24:25-27, 44-47; Jn. 5:46-47). Furthermore, he believed the Bible was historically accurate, “”In the Gospels we see Jesus reference Abel, Noah, Abraham, Sodom and Gomorrah, Isaac and Jacob, manna in the wilderness, the serpent in the wilderness, Moses as the lawgiver, David and Solomon, the Queen of Sheba, Elijah and Elisha, the widow of Zerephath, Naaman, Zechariah, and even Jonah, never questioning a single event, a single miracle, or a single historical claim. Jesus clearly believed in the historicity of biblical history.” (DeYoung, Taking God at His Word). Having Jesus’ bibliology is never a bad idea.

Jesus referred to the most controversial parts of the Old Testament without hesitation, yet the “Christian” Left sits in judgment of him and his views while claiming to be his followers.

  1. To be fair, as far as one can when dealing with leftist christians, to say that Jesus referred to Old Testament people or stories (such as Jonah, for example), doesn’t mean that He confirmed such characters actually existed or that the events He mentions actually occurred. More precisely, His referencing them isn’t confirmation of either at all. If I was to say, “As Mr. Micawber said to David Copperfield…”, the mere mention does not in any way suggest, and certainly doesn’t confirm, that either Micawber or Copperfield ever truly existed. It’s the message or point that matters in most of Christ’s references to OT stories and characters. A lesson from a fictional tale (not that I’m suggesting any of them actually are fictional) can have merit and be beneficial for us even though the tale is fictional.

    So, unfortunately, if a “progressive” argued that a particular story never happened, or that a particular character never truly existed, mere references to either by Jesus do little to defend the opposing position.

    Just sayin’.
