I say that without exaggeration. If you were reading a book that claimed to be the word of God and the explanation for this life and for eternity and for how to be on right terms with God, yet you completely rejected two of the religion’s foundational premises in the very first chapter, wouldn’t you just give it up and find another religion? Not the “Christian” Left. Consider these simple passages, clearly not written as illustrations but as specific truth claims (they immediately follow the genealogy of Jesus so it would be a non sequitur to shift genres).
Matthew 1 18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. 19 And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. 20 But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.
So we have two claims that the father is not human but that the conception was from the Holy Spirit. The Left’s opposition to the virgin birth isn’t some side issue, because it goes to Jesus’ claims of deity that they typically deny. Wolves like Mark Sandlin explicitly deny his divinity.
Then there is Jesus’ purpose for entering his creation.
21 She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” 22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet:
23 “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
and they shall call his name Immanuel”
(which means, God with us). 24 When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he took his wife, 25 but knew her not until she had given birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus.
So Jesus’ purpose was explicitly stated: To save his people from their sins. Yes, He came for other reasons, but the opening of this Gospel focused on the main reason. Also note the additional claim to the virgin birth.
Of course, the more you read the Bible, the worse it gets. The “Christian” Left thinks they like the Sermon on the Mount, but they’d hate it if they understood it. They only agree with a few parts of it because they get them wrong.
Run, don’t walk, from the “Christian” Left. Their beliefs are indistinguishable from the world’s.
