One Brave Pastor

.

In these days of apostasy, it is so refreshing and exciting to learn of another minister standing up for God’s eternal Truth. In fact, one of the blessings of being a “Preacher of Righteousness” is that we end up meeting other genuine men and women of God, to whom we “bump” into on the Internet. Thus, when Bible-honoring preachers read the posts of other biblical ministers, we find ourselves encouraged and wanting to connect.

Some time back, I met a wonderful Nazarene pastor online. Over the nearly two years that I have been acquainted with this man, I have become increasingly impressed with his integrity. However, his recent boldness on behalf of God’s Truth has raised my estimation of him far higher than before.

Pastor Peter Migner shepherds the Deland Church of The Nazarene in Deland, Florida. This man of God has just posted a powerful challenge to the ungodly “status quo” of his denomination in an article entitled:

.

Theistic Evolution Verses Creationism, and Can You Spot a Heretic?

.

Within his article above, Peter is directly confronting a heresy that denies the Bible’s inerrancy by trying to force the quasi-theory of Evolution into a Christian theological framework. By so doing, these people not only deny the biblical account of a literal six-day Creation found in Genesis chapters 1 through 3, but also the copious scientific evidence that supports the scriptural record. In short, these “theistic evolutionists” deny the veracity of Scripture, and thereby undermine the very foundations of the Christian faith—while yet claiming to be Christians themselves.

Consequently, though many of them might be sincere, they are also heretics by every conceivable definition. Most of them are likely not even born again, as the lack of demonstrated faith in God and His Word seems to betray the faithless state of their proud hearts:

Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

Not everyone who says to Me, “Lord, Lord,” shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven….And then I will declare to them, “I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!”

Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock… (an excerpt from Matthew 7:15-29, NKJV, emphasis added)

.

What is most disturbing, however, is the fact that so-called “Christian” colleges—and even some ignorant pastors—are giving ear to such heresy without verification of the facts. Thus, many “Christian” educational institutions and pulpits are teaching what is theologically heresy—and scientifically, unfounded stupidity—despite the abundance of Creation science resources available to refute such manure

In addition to the links I already provided within the text above, here are just two more wonderful resources (along with two specific articles on each) to get you started on discovering how scientifically verifiable the Bible really is:

I also provided some more Creation Science links on my Ask Rich page, as a response to a dear sister’s questions.

In closing, I highly recommend that my readers support Pastor Migner by visiting his post. Please also consider submitting one or more comments thereon to add to the discussion and to attract others to his bold article.
