It's rare for me to read fiction. I've reviewed quite a few of Michael S. Heiser's nonfiction works, fascinated with his work on the rebellious spirit beings from the Fall. In a podcast, he said his fiction told the story of one way the world could be manipulated by the spiritual forces of evil. So I had to read.
Everyone is a theologian; not everyone is a good one. I have a question for you. Have you ever examined your church's theology? I have, and we don't line up on some minor issues like the Rapture, early or old earth creationism, global or local flood. If it doesn't conflict with Jesus' being God incarnate, Lord and Savior, and salvation by faith alone and not any form of works, it's not a world-ender.
In the past couple of months, two prominent people in Christian circles made waves. One announced he was divorcing his wife and leaving the faith. The other announced his faith was wavering under the barrage of his questions. What's it mean?
It's time to prepare yourself.
Is the Bible and theology easy or hard? I say it's both. There are levels. It's never boring. I'll prove it with a single verse.
