For an explanation of this series, of which this post is a part, see Brandon E’s Objections: #1.
Brandon objects to my positions. This includes the following:
- Jesus Christ Has Already Come Again
- Everyone Is Going to Heaven
- The Kingdom of God Is Here and Now
- Church Is Not the Answer; Christ Is
- All Bible Prophecy Has Been Fulfilled in Christ
- There Is No Trinity; There Is Only Christ
One of Brandon’s most repeated objections – if not his single most repeated objection – is that he is unaware of others who proclaim or hold these views.
Does it give me pause that these truths are not commonly found in Christian tradition? Sure. Does it make me want to reexamine my understanding to be sure that it has come from God and not myself or some other source? Yes. Would I feel better if everyone were proclaiming these truths? Yes. Yes. Yes.
Nonetheless, at some point I, as a human being with a God-given conscience, have to make a decision about whether or not I will honor what God has shown me. If I don’t, things will be that much harder for the next person to whom God shows these things….because I will have joined the silence and not the word of God.
I stand by all that I have written on this blog. Amen and Amen.
