The with one another as Christians and fellow partakers in the grace of God.Word of God tells us to expose, mark, or avoid people that teach another gospel different than the Lord gave to His apostles.  But it also tells us to be patient and bear 

Our nation is seeing an infusion of radical progressive thought threatening the very foundation and future of our nation.  The Church in America is also witnessing a surge in hyper-liberalism leading many to question the fundamental and traditional teachings of the Apostles and early Church.  Is Progressive Christianity to be considered a part of Biblical Christianity?  Or is this movement a cancer threatening the true church? Is it, as its leaders claim, just a more compassionate and deeper understanding of God’s Word?  Or is it, as its critics claim, contradictory to God’s Word? 

Our guest today is author Dan Jensen.  He graduated from Bethany College with a BA in Social Science and a minor in Biblical/theological Studies.  He later earned his first master’s Degree in Systematic Theology from the University of Aberdeen.  He says “I am convinced that the church is on the precipice of a far greater controversy than took place during the early 20th century.  Dan was inspired to write his new book after many years of debating with Progressive Christians in many venues, and seeing the havoc that they are beginning to wreak.

The book is titled A False Kind of Christianity

Dan Jensen offers the conservative Evangelical community a no-nonsense assessment of the growing, aggressive progressive Christian movement. He provides his personal testimony, a short overview of the history behind the progressive Christian movement, a brief summary of its teachings, and clearly elucidates the fact progressive Christians possesses absolutely no biblical foundation. This movement must be countered by conservative Evangelicals.

“But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed.” 2 Peter 2:1-2

Quoted: J. Gresham Machen said the chief modern rival of Christianity is liberalism, further stating:

“An examination of the teachings of liberalism will show that at every point the liberal movement is in opposition to the Christian message.”
