Weekend Conference: Can We Trust the Bible?

Do you think there just might be a fifth column in the body of Christ? Hmm. I think it's possible!

  • How else would you explain the undermining of faith or the fact that unbiblical doctrines are being tolerated or even advanced in the church?
  • How else can you explain the widespread skepticism about the reliability and authority of the Bible, a skepticism that has become pervasive in the worldwide church?
  • How else can you account for the fact that evangelism is being replaced by human development and social justice?
  • How else can you explain the fact that dissenting theologians aren't being asked to retract unsound teachings?
  • How else can you understand how the church has become dangerously allied with unbiblical causes?
  • How else can you explain why having a biblical faith is often labelled blind fundamentalism?

This is just a small sampling of the forces that are broiling under the surface of an increasingly secularized church. As Jesus said, a house divided against itself cannot stand. This state of confusion can't be ignored. It must be resolved. Is there a way forward? I believe there is. We must point out with clarity what truths must be recovered in light of what is being attacked. The solution begins with Scripture, and it ends with Scripture. 

This weekend we're going to be analyzing some very troubling developments in the church today. I will be up front with my deepest convictions. My hope and prayer is that the Bible, the precious gift of God, will be more keenly read, believed, loved, and followed than ever before.

Have a great weekend everyone, and if you can, please say a prayer for me!
