The Bible is written by inspiration of God. Inspiration of God is not lost but words in the Scripture in transmission can be misunderstood or make weak impression. The reader of the Bible requires the self-same inspiration in order to change his scepticism. His mind-set is often shaped by his cultural background and unbelieving society. No church is the Church founded on the risen Christ. Each church is like a workshop engaged in spiritual transformation of souls who have accepted Jesus Christ as the saviour. When some sects do not accept atonement paid by Jesus Christ as full and covers all what shall we make of it?
If Calvinism has underpinned the capitalist society of the USA, fine. Virtue of a dollar gives rise to industry and wealth. When it has given rise to 1% of the nation cornering national wealth (and consequently leaving great many to institutionalized indigence) we ned wonder how far the wrong interpretation of the Word has played a role. Without giving Jesus Christ as focus to which all scriptural passages must fall to we are building false values. Industry of wealth where the word of God does not fully reflects is as good as coming from mammon. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. Those who preach prosperity theology and made themselves prominent are heard. Their reward is only for now and this world. When these TV preachers and false preachers promote values of Trump and narrow ideology of the right we may be sure how the word has been falsified. Such is devil’s trick when Christians have been fed with interpretation of the Bible where Christ is no longer the core value.
One shall never know when Jesus Christ shall come but the signs are becoming clearer and peace is eluding the nations around the world. It is time to know the truth.
