Rachel Held Evans claims that the Bible “fails massively at getting to the point”

It would be true if she said that the Bible fails to get to her points – that is, her basic “Christian” Left views that God approves of LGBTQX perversions, abortion, coveting, egalitarianism, etc.  But the Bible doesn’t fail at all in what God wants to teach us.

The Domain for Truth has another review on her latest disingenuously titled book, “Inspired” — Analysis of Rachel Held Evan’s Book “Inspired” Part 6.  I admire SlimJim for reading it all so we don’t have to!  I’d read excerpts that Evans posted and analyzed them here.

The link notes how Evans, as usual, works overtime to undermine the authority of scripture.

It [the Bible] fails massively at getting to the point.

That is spoken like a non-Christian. Who could miss the point of the opening verse?  God created everything, so you better believe that you’ll be accountable to him — and the rest of this book tells you how to be reconciled to him.

The Bible teaches over 100 times that Jesus is the only way to salvation (it isn’t just John 14:6, though that would be enough). What could be more clear? But a spiritually blind wolf like Evans can’t see that — and obviously doesn’t believe it.

And she is wildly pro-LGBTQX perversions, even though the Bible couldn’t be more clear and consistent about God’s views on sex.  Consider the following truths and how Evans’ perversion-affirming god teaches the opposite:

  • 100% of the verses addressing homosexual behavior denounce it as sin in the strongest possible terms.
  • 100% of the verses referencing God’s ideal for marriage involve one man and one woman.
  • 100% of the verses referencing parenting involve moms and dads with unique roles (or at least a set of male and female parents guiding the children).
  • 0% of 31,173 Bible verses refer to homosexual behavior in a positive or even benign way or even hint at the acceptability of homosexual unions.

Even two out of three types of pro–gay theologians* concede those points, yet the “doubt-filled” Evans has zero doubts about affirming every sexual perversion in the LTBTQX spectrum.

She once again tips her hand that, despite her disingenuous book title, she absolutely does not think the Bible is the inspired word of God. She’s worse than a Bart Ehrman or a Richard Dawkins, as she says the same sorts of things about the Bible that they do.  But at least they are open about not being believers.

She also creates a straw-man argument where she pretends that we don’t think that different situations may require different actions.  Of course we know better.  An ectopic pregnancy may require an abortion to save the mother while the child will die either way. But wolves like Evans use that to dismiss truly universal truths that killing children for the other 99.9% of reasons is evil.

The Bible doesn’t fail at all.  It accomplishes just what God wants it to (Isaiah 55) and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction and for training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3) — all things that Mrs. Evans and her followers desperately need!

As usual, run, don’t walk from wolves like Racist Held Evans.


*Pro-gay theology tends to fall into one of three categories. They are all wrong, but for varying reasons. Sometimes they overlap categories.

  1. The Bible is either not the Word of God, or most parts of it aren’t. This view claims that we can ignore the prohibitions against homosexual behavior because they were written by homophobic Jews.
  2. The Bible is the Word of God, but it doesn’t really say homosexual behavior is wrong. This view holds that people just aren’t reading the Bible properly, and that God’s Word is actually affirming of gay relationships.
  3. The Bible is the Word of God and does clearly and emphatically describe gay behavior as sinful. However, the Holy Spirit has given additional revelations such that this behavior is now acceptable. This view holds that God has changed his mind on this moral issue and not only is it now acceptable, but it is sinful if you don’t affirm this behavior and same-sex relationships.

Is the Target boycott working?

targetMaybe.  And I hope so.  TARGET STOCK IN TOILET: Boycott Passes 1 Million As Corporate Losses Pass $2.5 BILLION! | RedState .  And I know it is working with some people I know who aren’t even that political, but who have loved shopping at Target for decades.  They have had enough.

I normally don’t get too worked up over boycotts.  If you would have boycotted every non-Christian thing in the Roman empire you would have died in a week.  Amazon.com isn’t exactly a Christian institution but they save me a ton of money and time and I plan to keep shopping there (and they don’t even have public restrooms, so no worries about that).

But boycotts do have some value, and I think this is one of those times.

If you boycott to make non-Christians act like Christians, then that won’t get far.  But if you apply the “love your neighbor” test, I think this one is worthwhile.  Target has put innocent people at risk solely to appease the LGBTQX bullies.  That is worth fighting.

And this isn’t just some corporation following the corporate and cultural trends.  When I was at Compaq, the Sr. VP of Human Resources was just as supportive of adding the Christian Employee Network Group that I led as she was adding the LGBTQX group.  To her it was just a Human Resource trend and she wasn’t playing favorites.  (Things changed when HP bought us, but that’s a different story.)

But Target’s move is a blunt, hateful, in-your-face move, and it follows their silliness about avoiding gender-specific clothes designations.   Their “genderless” clothes displays are a self-parody. After all, even Bruce Jenner tries to dress like a traditional woman when he is pretending to be female.  I think they are trying to put The Onion out of business.

Do you really want to profit someone who hates you and your worldview so aggressively?

I highly encourage you to sign up for the boycott.  Even if you still need to shop there for practical reasons, at least try to shop their less.  Target probably won’t relent, because the blind people of Sodom* leading the LGBTQX movement are far more aggressive on these issues than Christians are.  But even if Target doesn’t change it may get other businesses to reconsider diving into the culture wars.

*You’d think that if God literally blinded you while you were sinning that you might at least pause for a moment.  Not with the LGBTQX lobby: Genesis 19:11 And they struck with blindness the men who were at the entrance of the house, both small and great, so that they wore themselves out groping for the door.target

The “Christian” Left gets Sodom wrong — twice!

The “Christian” Left likes to ignore passages like Jude 7 and 2 Peter 2 and pretend that the “sin of Sodom” was just being inhospitable — as if God is in the habit of obliterating two cities because of bad manners.  They cherry-pick a passage in Ezekiel that they think proves their point.  They like the first verse but ignore the “abomination” reference in the second.

Ezekiel 16:49–50 Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had pride, excess of food, and prosperous ease, but did not aid the poor and needy. They were haughty and did an abomination before me. So I removed them, when I saw it.

But it gets worse.  As Jude 7 notes,  not only were their sins homosexual in nature (“unnatural desire”) but the punishment represented an eternal punishment, something the “Christian” Left explicitly denies.

Jude 7 just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.

Also see 2 Peter 2:6–10:

. . .if by turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes he condemned them to extinction, making them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly; and if he rescued righteous Lot, greatly distressed by the sensual conduct of the wicked (for as that righteous man lived among them day after day, he was tormenting his righteous soul over their lawless deeds that he saw and heard); then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment, and especially those who indulge in the lust of defiling passion and despise authority. Bold and willful, they do not tremble as they blaspheme the glorious ones . . .

Once again they seem incapable of getting even the simplest concepts right.  Even when the twist scripture to prove or ignore a point, they don’t realize the logical consequences of their arguments.  I pray that when they are abusing the Bible that God removes the scales from their eyes and opens their hearts and minds to the truth of his word.
