True Christianity vs Subjective Religiosity

1 Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. 3 For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory. Colossians 3:1-4 (NASB) 

There is a form of religion in the world today that calls itself by many names and in each of those forms it is seen as a type of Christianity but is, in fact, nothing more than a man-made facsimile of true Christianity. Its foundation is not the same….

True Christianity is built upon the foundations of Christ, Him Crucified, God’s Eternal Word, The Holy Trinity, and the Sovereignty of God. On the other hand, the man-made, subjective form of it (no matter what it is called) has an entirely different foundation. Its foundation is accommodation, fairness, equality, the nobility of man, the rights of man, the free will of man, Critical Race Theory, Social Justice, and experientialism. Even though both true Christianity and the subjectivism reference many of the same things, the focus will be entirely different with the former being primarily on the glory of God through the exposition of His truth from His Word with the latter being on the accommodation of man with the inclusion of people’s experiences as the primary focus and means of knowing God and His truth.

Currently this is a great deal of controversy in the visible church about a statement made by Dr. John MacArthur about Beth Moore. His statement was very short, but he was answering a leading question in which he had to answer it that way. He was asked what he would say to Beth Moore if he encountered her in ministry and he simply said, “Go Home.” I have heard so many stupid comments about this from every angle and I am not going into all that now except to say that all those who are defending Beth Moore do so from the subjective not the objective while Dr. MacArthur’s statement was based entirely in the objective interpretation of scripture.  View article →
