If your pastor stood up at the pulpit and said to you that “God cannot know the future,” what would you think?
If your pastor stated also that “God makes mistakes and that He learns from those mistakes,” what would you think?
If your pastor said that Adam and Eve were simply allegorical tales, and that they were not really historical figures as written in the Bible, what would you think?
If your pastor stated to the congregation that Genesis 1-11 is not fact, and that we were really created through a wildly random process of “evolution,” what would you think?
I would hope that most Christians would be outraged, and would most likely call for the resignation of that pastor. These are all unbiblical beliefs which should not be tolerate of any ordained minister in the church.
Well, Dr. Tom Oord, who is also an ordained elder in the Nazarene church, has been terminated from his position as a theology professor at Northwest Nazarene University. I will be following up with another post regarding this outcome, but for now, I want to encourage every Christian on this list and who reads my blog, to go to the following link and express your support for the termination of this professor. This is not a time to gloat or celebrate the loss of anyone’s job; yet this is also a time to feel some relief, that at least one more professor will not be allowed to teach heretical views to so many students at a Christian school.
I was there at ENC several years ago, when after a lecture by Dr. Oord, and after I quoted relevant scripture to him, he politely disagreed with my position on the origin of sin and death, and solidified my conclusion that he is a false teacher. He is not alone, and I will expound on that next time. But for now, I urge you to go to the change.org website and express your support of his termination. Although the official reason stated was regarding budgetary reasons, I hope and pray that the proper reason that should have been said, was that he was let go because of his anti-biblical views.
If you agree, please go to the site and support Dr. Alexander’s removal of a dangerous teacher:
