I was browsing Twitter and came across this gem retweeted by “Progressive Christianity” darling, Rachel Held Evans.
Now Evans has made it a point to distance herself from biblical Christianity as taught in the bible; instead, she chooses to adopt a position that questions biblical salvation and the authority of Scripture. She is also known for supporting the role of LGBT people in the church, is open to evolution, and champions women’s push to be more vocal in the church.
This quote that Evans found to be so “retweetworthy” echoes all the unscriptural rhetoric she promotes. Is it really true that, with God, the closer you get to certainty, the further you get from the truth? Is she stating that the closer we get to being certain of Scriptural truths, the further we get from truth? This is complete and utter hogwash.
One thing you can be sure of… there is biblical truth, you can know it, and it will set you free. Jesus is the good Shepherd, not a derelict shepherd who allows His church to wander blindly through the darkness groping for unattainable truth. The Holy Spirit leads us into all truth, and you can bet that once He begins leading, you will arrive safely. Truth is knowable, and it is certain.
One last word… when Jesus prayed for the disciples in John 17:17, he said these words:
Sanctify them through thy truth; thy word is truth.
Not only is truth knowable and certain, but His Word, that is, the bible, is truth! That truth has the power to sanctify and save. Anyone who questions that questions that authority of Scripture. But, oh wait…. Rachel Held Evans admits that openly. Any wonder her words contradict what is written in God’s Word?
I think not.
