“Sovereign Jesus” is a site which takes issue with some ideas in circulation that are false or promote error, both inside and outside the Church. The most convincing lies are those which contain much truth, and make much use of scripture. Such deception causes some Christians to be side-tracked and lost in confusion and error, and some to even abandon Christ altogether. It can also deter unbelievers from taking Christianity seriously as the fake is all too evident to them. The apostle Paul warns “See to it that no one makes a prey of you by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the universe, and not according to Christ” (Col 2:8).
Many people have picked up distorted ideas of what Christianity is from TV shows and popular books which purport to explain various aspects of or about Christianity; but most of the “experts” who “explain” it for us, although having high academic qualifications, don’t really believe or accept the Bible as authoritative and accurate; so they explain away the miraculous, deny that the authors of scripture were really the authors, deny that certain books should even be in the Bible, and seek to undermine and change our whole understanding of scripture by perverting and reinterpreting it to suit their unbelieving and unbiblical theology.
Ever since the Church began, it has always been under attack; but Jesus said the gates of hell will not prevail against it (Matt 16:18). The Church’s enemies come and go, and for all their vaunted wisdom, they lie forgotten in the dust and decay of all those who went before them who thought that they, too, could prevail against Jesus and his Church. But Jesus reigns, his Church continues its march through history, and he is working his purposes out, bringing them to fruition, and history to its appointed end.
Technically, this site will always be under construction because there is always error opposing the gospel, both in and out of the Church, and it deserves to be confronted and exposed. And God’s people need to be shown that they don’t have to be afraid of false teachers and false ideas. The Bible is sufficient to refute anything brought against it: “for the weapons of our warfare are not worldly but have divine power to destroy strongholds” (2 Cor 10:4).
