I ask that in all seriousness. No matter how simple the passage, they always seem to miss the most obvious truths. A recent example is from false teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie in Duck Dynasty Crew Invited To Church.*
No one should be using the name of the Prince of Peace to intentionally tear us apart.
But where does the name Prince of Peace come from? This is the only reference in the Bible:
Isaiah 6:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.
Jesus came to bring peace between sinners and their God. It wasn’t the kind of peace Chuck and other false teachers allude to.
And how can Chuck quote this verse while explicitly denying Jesus’ deity in this passage? And to Chuck, this had to be a false prophecy, but he thinks Jesus is dead. How could He then reign on the throne of David? So why quote the prince of peace portion?
As usual, nearly every biblical reference that these wolves make is theological train wreck.
And even if the verse referred to the kind of peace Chuck thinks it does, how could a radical pro-abortionist like him use it with a straight face? Crushing and dismembering innocent human beings is as opposite of that kind of peace as you can get, yet Chuck supports the Democrats’ official policy of unrestricted, taxpayer-funded abortions.
Run, don’t walk, from false teachers like him.
* Of course, Chuck’s views on Phil Robertson are completely wrong as well. But that is to be expected, as Phil knows that the Bible is the word of God and Chuck thinks it isn’t.

I think every time false teachers are analyzed and found false, it is further evidence that they are not being guided by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit does not contradict His own word, as so many false teachers do.
I think J.C. Ryle also said we should rejoice when we see false teachers because that is further evidence that the Spirit has and is working in our lives.
… showing us to be of His fold and not Satan’s. Got interrupted by the boys on that last sentence. 🙂
Happy New Year from Blog Mommas!
Thanks, and blessing to you and your fellow bloggers!
I somehow get the idea that the time Chuck had his bible open he missed this verse:
34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I came to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; 36 and a man’s enemies will be the members of his household. (Matthew 10:34-36)
Have a blessed New Year!
Sure they do…it’s just that they’re quoting from their Liberal Ideology Edition (LIE), which isn’t in print yet and only exists in their minds.
LOL re. Liberal Ideology Edition! I’ll send you a quarter as a royalty every time I steal . . . er, uh . . . borrow that one!
Sir: Here is my question, perhaps my fundamental one, relating to Christianity — Is it possible for a misanthrope to be a true Christian?
I have no trouble loving God, or His Son, who created this sublime and beautiful physical world that we inhabit…
But the people who infest it — most of them: Bleh.
This is not a Christian attitude, I know. But the “Love thy neighbor” stuff leaves me cold when I see the sheer stupidity and decadence of our society.
Your friend, Eric
I’m not sure if you are serious. I encourage you to read the Bible a lot. It will help you see that you aren’t as great as you think and help you see how and why to love others. I agree that it is very hard! There is great stupidity both inside and outside the church. Many in the church are false believers and they don’t even know it.
