Christian Freedom

Let Freedom Ring

Christian freedom assumes one's ability to critique Christian teaching. Only in cults and other oppressively authoritarian environments is the freedom to critique what is being said taken away. Even the Apostle Paul says it is a noble and honorable thing to not receive what you hear Christians say (just because of who is saying it), but to search the Scriptures for yourself to see if what you are hearing is true (Acts 17:11). 
From Wade Burleson of

Acts 17:11
11 And the people of Berea were more open-minded than those in Thessalonica, and they listened eagerly to Paul’s message. They searched the Scriptures day after day to see if Paul and Silas were teaching the truth.

    1. Yes, the anonymous comments on that blog were part of the court summons which makes me wonder how Chuck discovered it unless he's doing Google searches on his own name.

      I'd be curious to know how many pastors search their own name on Google.
