The “Christian” Left can’t make it past the first chapter of the New Testament without rejecting essential doctrines

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.

  1. There is even an allusion to the virgin birth in Genesis 3:15, which I’m sure they reject outright. But given that the Seed was to be the Seed of the woman, not a man, shows that there would have to be some supernatural act involved in bringing about this Seed of the woman, since women are not considered to be those with the “seed.”

    As for the sermon on the mount, I was thinking of that this morning. They only like the “let your light shine” passage because it’s vague and points to their imagined goodness, never realizing that all the beatitudes just spoke of, in the real sense, not the liberal social justice sense, are the only real way to let our light shine.

    1. Yep. And their idea of shining their lights is actually worse than the hypocrites in Matthew 6. The Leftists mainly just virtue signal and do nothing, whereas at least the hypocrites DID something before wanting the praise of men.

  2. You Go Mark! Yes sir, Mark Sandlin is my boy! His peon to Satan “Jesus is not my God” tipped the scales in his favor to win the coveted (not) False Teacher Of The Year Award in 2015

    Mark is not a member of the “Christian” left, because to be a member of the “Christian” Left one needs to be a “Christian” of some flavor. Sandlin is openly an Anti Christ. He eagerly looks for ways to undermine the Word of God and anyone that believes in God. He honestly twisted Matthew 25:41 to read:

    Then he will turn to the the ones on the right, and say, “Get out, self-centered souls! You’re good for nothing but making God’s creation a living Hell.

    Really, he did that – http://www.patheos.com/blogs/thegodarticle/2015/11/jesus-responds-to-the-syrian-refugee-crisis/

    Don’t waste your time fuming over his mental shortfalls, but pray for those that fall prey to him and his satanic rants.
