Since the so-called ‘Enlightenment’ the church has had a tendency to err to pietism, on the one hand, restricting the gospel to personal salvation while surrendering the world to Satan, and to liberalism on the other hand, making the gospel socially applicable while thoroughly naturalistic in character. Speaking out of a concern for the true nature of church, in light of the errors that cripple it from apprehending its destiny, Ern adeptly answers the question ‘What is Christianity?’ by outlining historic biblical doctrine with 6 pithy distinctives of belief.
In this teaching you will learn that Christianity is:
- Disclosure not Discovery
- Obedience not Optional Opinion
- Theocracy not Democracy
- People not Places
- Redemption not Replacement
- Growing Up not Going Up
