12 Jan Are Your Beliefs (or Religion) Based on FEAR? | Letting Go of Fear-Driven Religion | Joshua Tongol

 

Sadly, much of what we call “RELIGION” today (or even a “RELATIONSHIP with God”) is driven by FEAR. And fear has been used to control the masses.

 

There is so much religious dogma being used to keep people ignorant and fearful. That being the case, many religious folks end up not thinking for themselves. Or, at other times, valid questions are suppressed by the religious authorities.

 

There are 2 things that mainly drive people: LOVE and FEAR

 

Questions to think about:

 

Why do you believe in God?
Why do you do good to others?
Are you afraid of God?
Would you believe in God if there were no hell or punishment?

 

The way one answers these questions will reveal what really drives the person’s beliefs.

 

Listen as Joshua shares the problems of Fear-Driven Religion and how we need to rediscover the God of love.

10 May Was Jesus FORSAKEN by the Father? | Is God Too Holy to Look on Sin? | Joshua Tongol

 

Is God too holy too look on Sin?
Was Jesus forsaken by His Father on the Cross?

 

These are two of the building blocks that make up the evangelical penal substitutionary theory.

 

Why does it matter? How we understand the crucifixion shapes our understanding of who God is and what He is like. And ultimately, our understanding of God’s character also shapes our lives.

 

Problems with these ideas:

 

-Based upon a “legal” understanding of holiness and the gospel
-Distorts the unity within the Trinity
-Goes against common sense
-Creates a distorted view of an untrustworthy Father

15 Apr Does Sin SEPARATE You From God? | Challenging Penal Substitution | Joshua Tongol

 

Does sin SEPARATE you from God? Is there a great chasm dividing humanity and God because of sin? Is there something a person must do in order to remove this separation?

 

Many Christians have been taught that sin separates us from God. In fact, when some people share the Gospel (GOOD NEWS), they begin with the idea of man being separated from God first. But is this where one should begin?

 

Moreover, this whole idea of “separation” is one of the building blocks of the Evangelical penal substitutionary theory.

 

Problems with SEPARATION?

 

-It’s not Christian
-Rooted in pagan dualism and not the Scriptures
-Has caused many Christians to suffer mentally and emotionally
-Denies the purpose of the incarnation and the finished work of Jesus Christ

22 Mar Was Jesus PUNISHED by the Father? | Challenging Penal Substitution | Joshua Tongol

 

What is wrong with the EVANGELICAL GOSPEL? Penal substitutionary theory is at the heart of the evangelical gospel. BUT what if it is WRONG?

 

Why does it matter? Our understanding of the Cross shapes our understanding of how we view God. And how we view God shapes the way we live.

 

Problems with penal substitution:

 

-Divides the Trinity
-Distorts forgiveness
-Contradicts the life and teachings of Jesus Christ
-Misunderstands justice
-Never found in parabolic form

This appeared on television on 2/8/10 on QTV channel 11 (Philippines).

 

From skeptic/critic to believer of supernatural Christianity.

 

*I want to thank those who have walked with me on this journey into the supernatural–the painful struggles and the victories–that the interview was not able to capture.
