Self-proclaimed theologians have been attempting to prove the fallibility of God since Jesus’ ministry on earth. The Sadducees and Pharisees, two “religious” sects of the time, were constantly trying to entrap Jesus by asking him loaded questions about the scriptures and life in general.

Understand, the progressive mantra is to perpetually propagate the message that having absolute faith in God is not something for the “thinking man.”

But God’s wisdom has always prevailed against those who would challenge His power and authority. And for anyone to espouse an understanding of His Word, and yet, spend more time attempting to prove God’s fallacy than spreading the Gospel, is the epitome of hypocrisy.

It’s my belief that those having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ are empowered with a spirit of discernment that enables them to identify false prophets and steer clear of their promulgation.

But let me be clear. God did not call His people to silence! It’s been the church’s silence that’s allowed the progressive movement to become a formidable faction! So I choose to use my pen and this piece to share what I believe to be the theology of a “true believer.”

Liberals know that to move forward “progressively” they must cause believers to question their faith in God, essentially opening the door to “reason.” But God’s Word isn’t dependent on man’s wisdom, but rather man’s faith.

Faith, as the Bible tells us, is the “substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Depending on the translation, the word “faith” was used nearly 300 times in the Bible and is prerequisite to accepting God as being omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. That is, He is unrestricted, all-seeing and everywhere!

In two of the Gospels, the Pharisees sought to repudiate Jesus’ good works and diminish Him before the people. So they plotted to entangle Him before His followers by asking him a question regarding paying taxes to Rome, a topic sure to create division.

“Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?” they asked. But Jesus “perceived their wickedness,” according to the scriptures, and said, “Why tempt me, ye hypocrites? Show me the tribute money.” After handing Him a penny, he asked them, “Whose is this image and superscription?” They replied, “Caesar’s”. Then, with the wisdom of His Father, Jesus said, “Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.”

The Bible says “they marveled, left him and went their way”.

Yet, today, men still seek to diminish God.

I have never seen the face of God, nor have I touched the nail-scarred hands of my savior, Jesus Christ. And I certainly can’t “reason” His grace.

But faith isn’t driven by the ability to reason with one’s mind, but by the ability to believe with one’s heart. And if we are to believe that there is even an “ounce” of fallibility in God’s Word, true faith would be impossible.

So for me and my house, we will continue to serve the Lord, by faith.
