The Weekly Eureka invites you to flip on a light switch - ask the questions - question the answers and join others on the journey to the most important discovery of all - that of your true self.
Sound Doctrine? 

Sound Doctrine

A concept that has been widely accepted by mainstream Christianity is the notion of original sin, which is basically the belief that Adam's work of disobedience in the garden was imputed to all mankind upon birth, thus making it a finished work; a done deal. According to the scriptures this applies to "those who did not sin according to the transgression of Adam" - in other words, even if you are living righteously and always have, you are still guilty of this original sin by proxy. You are not required to believe in it. You don't have to confess Adam as your personal Lord and Savior. Yet, you are born into this world as an infant already in need of redemption.

Interestingly, we don't seem to feel the same way about Jesus, whose name we claim to revere and place above ALL others. Really? According to the present day theology of most of the Christian Church, Jesus' death on the cross remains an unfinished work that we must complete by confessing our sins, believing on Him and accepting Him into our hearts before we can be what we refer to as "saved." By this logic, we effectively believe and proclaim that Adam's work of disobedience unto death is more powerful and efficacious than Jesus' work of obedience unto life. If this is true, then why not pray in Adam's name? Why are there no songs written in praise of Adam if his work is more powerful than that of Jesus? That sounds ridiculous! But that's what we have embraced as sound doctrine.


A question you may ask is, "In the absence of a specific experience, how do I know I am saved?" I would answer that question with another, "How do you know you are not?" Were you born feeling sinful? Fallen? With the urge to renounce all works of the devil before you left the hospital? NO! At some point, religion told you that you were all these things and you believed it. And because God granted us free will and told us that the power of life and death is in our tongue, it has become our truth and our reality - but it is not sound doctrine.


The same Bible some would use to convince you that you are lost and undone is the same Bible I can use to give you scripture after scripture that says you were saved before you ever believed or confessed. Sound doctrine, then, is not about biblical accuracy. The purpose of sound doctrine is the unveiling of our level of consciousness. When we stop trying to use the Bible as a textbook and start allowing it to be a mirror, showing us who we are and what we think, our doctrine will be sound!

Quote of the Week

"The pattern, promotion, preaching and practice of magnifying a finished work of Adam over the perverse idea of an unfinished work of Christ must be retracted, re-thought and re-presented."  ~D.E. Paulk
