Words of a Fether

I am the way, the truth, and the life;
no one comes to the Father except through me. ~Jesus

Birth of a Cult

For if evangelicals go off again in a fundamentalist separatism while clinging to an unorthodox doctrine of the Trinity, their separation from the rest of the Body of Christ could prove irreparable, like the invention of a new sect in the characteristically American mode of Mormonism or Jehovah’s Witnesses (“The New Evangelical Subordinationism: Reading Inequality Into the Trinity,” Priscilla Papers, Vol. 20, No. 4, Autumn 2006, pp. 41, 45)

This quote comes from part 2 of an excellent series entitled The Trinity and Evangelical Neo-Arianism beginning at Emmaus House, a new blog. While I don’t assign Biblical authority to creeds and confessions, their value lies in refuting this new cult’s claim of having history on their side. Specifically, this cult is the one that calls itself “Complementarianism”. It is male-supremacism, to the point as the article shows of denying the very nature of God. It worships male flesh and pride, rank and order and authority, to a practically fascist level.

Of course they don’t like hearing these words and will take great offense. But it’s the truth, and truth must not “dialog” with error.
