Yes. Yes, He did.
OK, you have to listen to the rest of the question to know the real answer, of course. There are areas of legitimate debate. But the pet theological liberal trick is to undermine the authority of the Bible so it is easier to ignore parts they don’t like. The theological liberal mantra seems to be to constantly call into question what a plain reading of the Bible says.
It is a classic Dalmatian Theology trick – implying that the Bible is only inspired in spots, and that the liberal theologians are inspired to spots the spots. Thanks anyway, but I’ll continue to treat the whole book as inspired.
They miss the irony of their theme being straight from Satan in Genesis 3:1, perhaps because they are so quick to dismiss Genesis in general.
Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”
Yes, He really said that Jesus was the only way, that Jesus is God, that marriage is for one man and one woman, that you shouldn’t kill innocent human beings, that we are all sinners in need of a Savior, that there is a Heaven and a Hell, that there is Truth, and so on.
