The Importance of Source

January 31st, 2009

(In Review of “The Last Templar” Mentality)

“For I would have you know, brothers, that the gospel that was preached by me is not man’s gospel”

(Galatians 1:11)

The Last Templar appeared on national television January 25, 26, 2009.  This program is indicative of the kind of non-critical approach to Christianity that is so often aired in the 21st century marketplace.   Much of this sentiment is liberal, anti-Christian, and/or so off the wall that it is incredible.  However, we say this having a background in both classical and historical Christian evidences; not all have taken this trek.  We are reminded therefore of the tremendous importance of source.

1.   Galatians 1:11 claims divine origin. The Last Templar intimates with delight-human origination. The idea is further complicated with the notion that God needs help to sustain the scheme of  a noble but far fetched story by a Nazarene called Yeshua.

2.   We are reminded of critics who attempt to expose the book of Job. The matter becomes absurd when they quote from the very sources whom Job says do not speak for God (16:2; 42:7)!  This is  the kind of non-sense that is being lauded as astute today.

3.    See Psalm 18:26 regarding how astutely God outwits the crooked.

Source remains critical (Gal. 1:11-12).
