Can you be a Christian and hold to any of the following?

  • Jesus’s death didn’t atone for our sins.
  • Jesus probably didn’t rise from the dead.
  • The Bible isn’t the inerrant Word of God.
  • Jesus wasn’t born of a virgin.
  • Heaven and Hell might not exist.

Alisa Childers and I evaluate a core component of progressive Christianity called “deconstruction,” the process of re-thinking everything you’ve been taught or believed about God and Jesus. Our goal is to highlight the true gospel of Jesus Christ so that Christians end up building a stronger faith. Here is the problem. Progressive Christianity is not simply another gospel. It is a false gospel.

Alisa Childers is a wife, a mom, an author, a blogger, a speaker, and a worship leader. She was a member of the award-winning CCM recording group ZOEgirl.
