I have seen this video before. It is a good clear presentation of pointing out the false teaching that is being mass distributed. Unfortunately, many are following it.

Humanism disguised as Christianity!

When we elevate man, we lower the cross and we cant afford to do that because the Cross IS our only hope.

This was so powerful, so wonderful Thank you Steve. I feel so blessed to have found your blog awhile ago.
I myself once upon a time was reading Rob Bell (velvet elvis) and thinking it was good stuff. As I matured in my faith and biblical knowledge, I began to prefer the truth of God as opposed to the truth of Rob Bell. So many have not a clear understanding of the fallacies of the church of Rob Bell, it worries me.

I may again use something from your blog on mine in hopes to reach more people. Thank you so much for your willingness to teach and share.

Thanks, Sarah.

You are proof that simple growth in biblical literacy is both transforming and protective against really bad teaching!

I'm not sure... some pastor from NZ or Australia. I'd like to find out though...

I like his obvious concern about making his people literate.

Of course, it can't stop there... our literacy needs to inform and motivate our action (the old orthodoxy vs. orthopraxy argument), but I believe biblical literacy is absolutely key.

He is definitely Australian. Don't know who though.

Good word, Nancy.

Often, it is what is NOT said that makes the difference between good teaching and bad.

Also, I'm glad you commented on an old post... I'd like to keep all these conversations open like that!

So he doesn't know Koina, but he consults Strongs?

Isn't that a bit cyclical?
