Religious Extremes Are Dangerous!

December 27, 2018

“Leatherbound Terrorism” by Chris Kratzer tells the story of a right wing Conservative, Fundamentalist, Evangelical minister who, after decades of preaching this theology of Pharisees, makes a 180 degree shift to the far left Progressive theology of a “feel good” Gospel, under the guise of “God’s Grace” with little to no mention of God’s TRUTH, for Jesus came “full of grace & truth” (John, chapter one). From condemnation and conditions to unconditional love with no conditions, the author gives a “free pass” to all people, whatever their beliefs. Repentance is not needed, for God’s Grace is sufficient. No need for anyone to believe that God IS and that HE IS in Control; that we are ALL sinners in need of a Savior. The author preaches a “gospel” of “there is nothing wrong with you”. This is not a book that I, an Evangelical, conservative Christian, falling in the middle of these two extremes, would give a good review. It’s great for discussion, but that’s about all. Better the author had made a 90 degree shift, for himself and for those whom he ministers. “For by Grace we are saved, through Faith (condition) and that not of your self; it is the gift of God.” (Ephesians 2:8).

“Is God A Gay Basher” Review

December 11, 2018

From Pastor Tom:

Jan Liebegott, a short shout out to one I have never met. Folks, I met with a group yesterday and spoke to them with “Is GOD A GAY BASHER” in hand…If you have not read this book, you really should…In it Jan nails just about everything I’ve stood for for years. Now Jan is just a “youngster”and knows a few things, BUT, was inspired to write this book and in so doing impressed a whole lot of folks, and that was just yesterday…No telling who the JANSTER has transformed lives heretofore. BUT, I will say, she has transformed MINE. THANKS Liebegott….YOU definitely got my attention all four times I’ve read it and 3 times that I’ve taught it.
