Myths, Lies and Half Truths

Myths, Lies and Half-Truths adopts Jesus’ methodology of taking a closer look at God’s Word and applies it to erroneous misinterpretations that have resulted in a virtual shut-down of the church’s full-orbed mission in the world (Acts 20:27). These traditional but mistaken interpretations and applications of popular Bible texts to contemporary issues have resulted in the Christian faith being “thrown out and trampled under foot by men” (Matt. 5:13).

Too many Christians believe, along with a watching world, that the Bible is irrelevant this side of heaven. While the homosexual community is about one percent of the population, it has had – and continues to have – tremendous impact on our culture and laws. Christians, who make up about 35 percent of the population, seem to have voluntarily abandoned culture and hidden the gospel under a bushel. This is the first time in the history of the church that such a minimalized worldview has become so pervasive in the church.

Our nation is in a crisis. The world is crying out for answers in the face of bewildering and seemingly unsolvable problems. Myths, Lies, and Half-Truths shows that the Bible has real answers and shows that the church has been instrumental throughout history in the development and implementation of what is uniformly described as a comprehensive biblical worldview.

Christianity’s failure to be a practical religion in the past 150 years or more has meant the success of a perverted and twisted secularism and an advancing militant Islam that are doing incalculable harm at home and abroad. Humanism and Islam have gained the upper hand by default. The rejection of any type of this-worldly application of the Bible has resulted in the proliferation of a man-centered worldview that has steadily drained the life out of our world and left behind a spiritual vacuum.

Will the church of Jesus Christ be ready with biblical answers for the millions who will be ready to follow the light of the gospel of grace and all that it means for their lives this side of heaven as the worldviews of humanism and Islam continue to be exposed as “folly”? (2 Tim. 3:9). Now is the time to make the necessary theological preparations. It is my prayer that Myths, Lies, and Half-Truths will help in that task.
