Heresy Revisited

Old Universalistic Heresy

Everyone is raving about the sermon at the Royal Wedding, here it is in a nutshell - God is love, love is right and good, so love each other. Do you see the problem? Everyone knows we are supposed to love God with all our heart, mind soul and strength and our neighbor as ourselves, but we don't and can't. Apart from the transformative work of the Gospel and empowerment of the Holy Spirit we are unable to please God and frankly don't want to. Jesus was only mentioned as an example, not the cure. He is THE ONLY ONE who has or ever will live the life of love God requires. He is THE ONLY ONE who perfectly loved mankind enough to lay down his life as a sacrifice for our sin. Good luck with try-hard, moralistic religion, I prefer the Gospel. – Dr. Gary Cass Sadly there are people who ought to know the difference between biblical Christianity and old, discredited liberal theology defending Bishop Curry's sermon at the royal wedding. There are so many false assumptions and out right errors that you would hope people would see this is nothing new, it is the old, universalistic heresy. No, we are not all children of God. No, Jesus didn't die merely as an example of love. No, Jesus did not die for nothing. He died to redeem His people and has gained a name above every name, and the nations of the earth are His inheritance. I could go on, but here is the Bishops own words regarding same sex marriage, "Our commitment to be an inclusive church is not based on a social theory or capitulation to the ways of the culture, but on our belief that the outstretched arms of Jesus on the cross are a sign of the very love of God reaching out to us all." Dr. Gary Cass
