Minister Says Everyone is Born Again
Bible Teacher Claims Christianity Misrepresents the Gospel
Mike Williams will be speaking in the Augusta area May 14th through the 16th. Location and times are available by calling 706-556-8602 or visiting Williams’ website at http://www.gospelrevolution.com.
Williams says the phrase “born again is taken out of context by traditional Christianity.”
This, of course, flies in direct conflict with traditional Christian theology. Nonetheless, Williams persists.
“The Gospel is completely misdiagnosed by orthodox and evangelical Christianity alike,” says Williams.
He is far from being alone in this declaration. According to Williams, the New Testament refers to a Gospel of grace and peace. There are many individuals, groups and concepts such as “Universalism”
"Traditional Christianity tends to speak of grace, which is the gift of God without requirements, but it tries to bind that unconditional gift to some moral code. This is completely contradictory to grace." according to Williams.
Williams says it is common in Christianity for individuals and denominations to develop entire doctrines by linking disparate Bible verses from various books to support their doctrines. Although he also teaches from the Bible, Williams consistently keeps verses in the context of chapters and chapters in the context of entire books of the Bible, which draws a much different picture than that presented by the Christian religion. According to Williams, Christianity likes to base an entire doctrine or belief on a verse or two taken out of context to which he replies, “I see your verse and raise you a chapter.”
