A progressive Nashville church is in hot water for claiming the Bible isn’t “inerrant or infallible” and “can’t live up to impossible, modern standards.”
GracePointe Church, led by Pastor Josh Scott, shared an image on Facebook stating: “The Bible isn’t: the Word of God, self-interpreting, a science book, an answer/rule book, inerrant or infallible,” The Christian Post reports.
The church claimed the Bible is “a product of community, a library of texts, multi-vocal, a human response to God, living and dynamic,” adding, “As Progressive Christians, we’re open to the tensions and inconsistencies in the Bible.”
Nationally syndicated radio host Todd Starnes reacted to the story Friday: “It’s kind of a shocking statement but there does seem to be this wokeness that’s infecting modern-day evangelical churches.”
Christian band Skillet’s frontman John Cooper told the Todd Starnes Show “if the Bible is not the Word of God then we have nothing to stand on, we have nothing that is unshakable in our lives and I think we need the opposite message.”
The “Awake & Alive to Truth” author explained: “I think we need to be promoting the Bible is the unchanging Word of God, that is what you build your life upon and you will be unshakable.”
He added: “We have to fight and we have to stand up for the Word of God because people’s lives are falling apart and … God actually has answers for all of these questions.”
