For a thorough examination of “The Purpose-Driven Life,” take a look at this critique by T.A. McMahon. Yet for all the problems of the book, Christians lacking in discernment are still gobbling it up.
Michael Gungor has received a lot of criticism lately for his stance on Biblical creation. However, that is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to his professed beliefs. He doesn’t like the story about Noah either. His criticism of it is quite childish and irrational, all the while claiming to being thoughtful and rational! Since Jesus and the apostles taught the Flood and Noah’s journey through it as true, Gungor has to say they are lying. His “What Do We Believe” article is quite rambling and demonstrates why he should not be invited to perform in Christian venues - he doesn’t even believe Adam & Eve were literal. Without that, you have no literal fall and no literal need for a savior. That, my friends, is heresy. [links gone by 2/14/16]
