    This thing was a major reason I walked out of church. Knowing that it was teaching something weird, I googled it and that is how I came to find Paul’s Passing Thoughts.

      Would be interesting to know which post first got your attention in regard to the whole every verse is about Jesus thing.

        I’m pretty sure I landed on the post with the podcast on the subject. I looked up Gospel Project and probably “exposed”, “heresy”, stupid, unbiblical, etc. to see if anyone else felt this way. The every verse about Jesus I didn’t need anyone to tell me was messed up, that much was evident. But what to call this weirdness? That’s when your post informed me of the “historical-redemptive hermeneutic” and a light bulb went off for me. I knew it was really wrong because it was painful to watch the writers of these lessons butcher, and I do mean hack to death, the clear meaning of Scripture.

        Pretty much every Sunday I was disagreeing with some aspect of the lesson, much to the chagrin of the super stealthy neo-cal pastor who was trying to be crafty about his Loadship Damnation. I kept saying the Holy Spirit will lead us into all righteousness if we are born again. No mention of the Holy Spirit and His work in this series.

        I felt bad for those poor folks stuck in that church. They just want a vanilla Baptist church, but have taken so many hits, they can’t afford to tell this pastor to shove off. This one lady in her 80s, after the lesson went on and on about sin, said, “Fornication! At my age!! I only go to Wal-Mart and Kroger!” It was hilarious. Everyone there but the pastor hated this Sunday School program, but like a good soldier, he just went on with it because his Neo-Cal buddies were all about it. Also, in this area, many of our pastors actually work at LifeWay, in the actual ivory towers of the SBC with the big kahunas themselves. He had one of them come preach for him.

        The only thing I regret about my time there was not tearing the Gospel Project book up in front of everyone and slamming it into the trash can.

    Every verse? And they believe that? How does one experience the gospel as a child when one is not one of the chosen few? How do these liars of the Gospel Project know if they themselves are in da club? Have the justified far enough…or not?

    Shall we tell them about the New Birth? Shall we rattle the cage and see what tumbles out first . . . the ESV MacArthur signed Canon or Calvin’s Institutes? Or an “I Love Women” Luther fridge magnet? Or will there be thousands of skeletons tumbling and crashing to the floor? Yes, I think the latter before the former.
