NAZNET’S EMERGING CHURCH POSITION: NIX BIBLE

J. Grant Swank, Jr.

NazNet goes the way of the emerging church debunking of the Bible’s absolutes. Brian McLaren, popular voice for the emerging church, discounts what he calls “objective truth.” In other words, God’s absolutes in Scripture do not matter.

NazNet is parroting that blasphemy. Yet the Bible calls for faith in its being divine revelation, not to be added to or subtracted from. Therefore, those who sideline the Word of God will answer beneath the heel of divine wrath.

John 17:17: “Sanctify them through Your truth. Your Word is truth.”

That is one of the chief verses that the Church of the Nazarene has been based upon since 1908, its founding year in Pilot Point, Texas.

The Nazarenes have proclaimed holiness of heart and life. The Nazarenes have preached without apology that a mortal can not only be saved from sins but saved from the carnal nature—sin.

How can one come to know about this divine grace potential? Through the entire Word of God—from Genesis to Revelation. God’s Word is truth.

The Church of the Nazarene has given forth faithfully the glad tidings that the Bible can be trusted. God’s Word is “truth.” All of God’s Word is “truth,” not just parts of it.

However, NazNet site founder Dave McClung says just the opposite. It states through such staffers as Scott Cundiff and Hans Deventer and cheered on by such former staffers as Barbara Moulton that the Bible is error-laden.

In other words, one must be careful when reading the Bible for there are landmines in it that can lead one astray. Therefore, one must be clever enough to pick and choose what is to be believed and what is not to be believed.

Cundiff goes so far as to state that the more one reads the Bible the more God fades. The more one researches the Scriptures, the less one knows about God. Deventer states on NazNet that he concurs.

This is exactly what the NAZNET DISTORTS site exposes about NazNet. NAZNET DISTORTS lays bare the heresies propagated by NazNet and permitted by founder McClung.

Why is NazNet up to this? Who knows? But it is there on the Internet for anyone to research. NAZNET DISTORTS has done much of the homework for the wise and discerning.

It is part of the “great falling away” for the Church of the Nazarene to be attacked by its own. The General Superintendents have been informed of this intrusion. What have they done about it? I don’t know but I have at least informed them.

I have also informed the District in which Cundiff’s Alvin Texas Church of the Nazarene resides. What that officialdom does about it is under God’s surveillance. The last move they should make is to turn upon the truth giver—NAZNET DISTORTS.

God’s Word is reliable from cover to cover. Christians have witnessed that to be practical truth throughout their lifetimes.

Now come along doubters McClung, Cundiff, Deventer, Moulton and naïve posters who have lauded their positions on NazNet. It is a shame. It is blasphemy. It must be exposed far and near.
