First, a point of clarification: this post is about theological, not political, liberalism. While the two often go hand-in-hand, that is not always the case. The issue I am addressing in this post is the liberal approach to theology in general and bibliology specifically. Liberal Christianity essentially accepts some parts of the Bible while discarding others; they are misguided and inconsistent in their approach to the Bible.
Some theological liberal viewpoints include the JEDP Theory, the synoptic problem, demythologization, and some forms of biblical criticism, etc. Let’s take the JEDP Theory, aka the documentary hypothesis, as an example. The JEDP Theory essentially states that Genesis through Deuteronomy was not written by Moses, but by at least four different authors, identified by the letters, J, E, D, and P, and then a redactor who combined all the various texts. The primary problem with the JEDP Theory is that the New Testament attributes Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy to Moses. If the New Testament is wrong about the Mosaic authorship of the Pentateuch, it is in error, and therefore not infallible or trustworthy. If the New Testament authors were wrong about this issue, what else were they wrong about? Theologically liberal Christians accept, or at least claim to accept, some of the teachings of Jesus, and some of the teachings of Paul, and some principles from the Old Testament, etc. But, liberal Christianity undermines its own viewpoint when it rejects the infallibility of Scripture. If the Bible is not the Word of God, how can we know Jesus and Paul actually taught those things? If the Bible is not trustworthy, why should we care what it says?

Liberal Christianity often denies the miracles recorded in the Bible. If there are no miracles, there is no Christianity, as the Christian faith is built on the resurrection of Jesus Christ (see 1 Corinthians chapter 15). If the miracles in the Bible are not true, the human authors of Scriptures were liars — they were the false prophets Jesus warned us about (oh, wait, did Jesus actually say anything about false prophets?!?!) Do you see the problem here?
Fmr. Google Employee Alleges Blacklisting of Hundreds of Conservative Websites, Delivers Documentation to DOJ
Did the tech giant Google blacklist hundreds of conservative websites to push forward a progressive agenda? That’s what a former Google employee is alleging – and he’s taking his case to the Department of Justice.
Zachary Vorhies told the investigative organization Project Veritas that he has delivered close to 1,000 pages of documents from Google, his former employer, to the anti-trust division at the Justice Department.
Vorhies says he worked at Google for eight years and that his documents show that the tech giant manipulated its algorithms so its search engine was biased against conservative and Christian media. Related

“The reason why I collected these documents is that I saw something dark and nefarious going on with the company,” Vorhies explained. “I felt that our entire election system was going to be compromised forever by this company that told the American public that it was not going to do any evil. And I saw they were making really quick moves, not only in the documents but also in the internal speeches that the executives were giving to the company.
“They were intending to sculpt the information landscape so that they could create their own version of what was objectively true,” he said.
The Vorhies documents show the black-listed websites include prominent conservatives voices like Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Michelle Malkin. They include the Daily Caller and RedState as well as Christian websites such as The Christian Post, Patheosand Christian Today.

Just last December, the CEO of Google went before Congress and testified that the company was politically neutral. Speaking about the company’s search algorithms, he said: “Our algorithms have no notion of political sentiment.”
But Vorhies says the documents show otherwise. Some of the documents are available to view online.
“They’re telling people they don’t have any blacklists. They don’t have any political ideology. They don’t have any political bias,” he said. “But it’s really clear that they do. And if Google wants to have political bias and they want to say they’ve got political bias, that’s their right as a company. But for them to go under oath and say that these blacklists don’t exist, well, employees like me are able to search through the internal search engine of the company and see that they do is hypocritical at the least. And it’s perjury at the worst.”
Vorhies told Project Veritas that he was making $260,000 a year at Google but that he stepped away because he wanted to do the right thing.
He said he’s feared for his life after coming forward in recent weeks. The former Google employee told the investigative website that he has set up a “Dead Man’s Switch” to release all of the information to the public in the event of his death. Vorhies said he notified Google about his plan.
CBN News is reaching out to the Department of Justice for more information on this case.
Glenn Beck, CEO of The Blaze website appeared on Thursday’s edition of CBN’s Newswatch program to discuss the allegation that his company’s websites are being blacklisted by Google.
Glenn Beck, CEO of The Blaze website told CBN News on Thursday he’s not surprised if the blacklisting is happening.
“This is something we’ve been warning about and we’ve been talking about for a while,” Beck explained. “We know they are outwardly banning and I think it’s really more than a de-personizing people.”
“It’s very reminiscent of China. We know that it is happening openly to people,” Beck said. “And they are getting more and more subtle with their algorithms. This poses a great, great danger to our republic.”
When asked about Google’s CEO’s testimony to Congress last year, Beck urged viewers to look at the Harvard study that was done by Professor Epstein, a Hillary Clinton supporter, but started to track Google and what they were doing and how they were manipulating search results.
“He said that just by changing the first five search results, you can take somebody that is undecided and you can move them into one camp or the other,” Beck noted. “And he has evidence that they did that during the 2016 election, and he is ringing the warning bell as hard as he can that democracy or our republic may be on its last legs this election because of manipulation of algorithms. And just search items from Google and he has the evidence to back it up.”
Asked how his organization would respond to the alleged Google blacklisting, Beck responded, “I’m kind of to the point now to where I know what’s coming. Our job is to alert people that this is happening. You don’t realize you’re being manipulated. And to gather all of the voices together under The Blaze and join hands and arms and support each other, because we’re being run out of the public square in the cover of darkness.” Source
If God decided to give us a book that is supposed to guide us through life and eternity but allowed that book to be filled with myths, lies, half-truths, and misconceptions — is He a God worth following? What kind of God is that? How cruel, twisted, and…ungodly. No, if God is who the Bible says He is, He is perfectly holy, just, righteous, gracious, loving, and merciful. Giving humanity an error-filled book would not agree with any of those attributes.
Liberal Christianity essentially wants to pick and choose which parts of the Bible are from God. They want to accept “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows…” (James 1:27) and reject “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). I can’t live my life like that. If God did not bother to give me a reliable instruction manual, why should I bother following any of His instructions? If God’s Word is not infallible and trustworthy, why should I care what it says? That is where liberal Christianity goes wrong. Liberal Christianity destroys the very foundation of Christianity — the Word of God. Liberal Christianity essentially tells us to follow a book (or at least certain parts of a book) that they themselves do not believe in.
My wife and I recently ate at a Middle Eastern restaurant with some friends. The menu was so filled with spelling and grammar errors that we could not be confident regarding the ingredients in the food. Is “chickees” chicken or chickpeas or something else entirely? Do I really want ricin with my kabob? We eventually found a few items we were reasonably confident about and enjoyed a delicious meal. Needless to say, despite the decent food, we likely won’t be returning. And, that was just a menu at a restaurant. The errors theological liberals accuse the Bible of are infinitely and eternally more serious. Yet, they still encourage us to follow certain teachings of Jesus and assure us that those teachings are trustworthy. No thanks. I’d rather have the chickees.
The people spreading concrete information on the dangers of globalism are accomplishing far more than those sitting around buying bitcoin or passing around Q-cult nonsense.
Jesus chastised religious leaders in the first century for not knowing the time of His arrival. Will we make the same mistake today? Christ stated how His second coming would be preceded by global events signifying the end of our age. We may not know the day or the hour, but we can know the season!
“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.” (Joel 2:28.)
Education is useless without the bible (Daniel Webster)
“Courage is as “fear that has said its prayers.”
John Wesley who said that what we tolerate in our generation, will be embraced by the next. Wesley is 100% correct! We are living in sick times.
Usually, the Lord doth no great thing for or against his people, without giving warning of it before it comes.
They perverted justice among themselves (v. 7): “You turn judgment to wormwood, that is, you make your administrations of justice bitter and nauseous, and highly displeasing both to God and man.’’ That fruit has become a weed, a weed in the garden; as nothing is more venerable, nothing more valuable, than justice duly administered, so nothing is more hurtful, nothing more abominable, than designedly doing wrong under color and pretense of doing right. Corruptio optimi est pessima —The best, when corrupted, becomes the worst.
It is impossible to find anyone in the Bible who was a power for God who did not have enemies and was not hated.
2 Corinthians 4:8-11 New King James Version (NKJV)
8 We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 10 always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11 For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh
