Progressive teachers and churches now offer a version of Jesus that emphasizes friendliness, acceptance, and tolerance—a version that many Christians are accepting, even though it's historically and biblically indefensible. On Tuesday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Jason Jimenez, founder and president of Stand Strong Ministries and author of Hijacking Jesus honestly tests the progressive version of Jesus against the four canonical gospels, which remain the most credible sources for Jesus's life, teaching, miracles, death, and resurrection.
Elisabeth Elliot was a young missionary in Ecuador when members of a remote Amazonian indigenous people group killed her husband Jim and his four colleagues. And yet, she stayed in the jungle with her young daughter to minister to the very people who had thrown the spears, demonstrating the power of Christ’s forgiveness. On Tuesday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, author Ellen Vaughn provides a unique and intimate point of view into how Elisabeth Elliot navigated the world and continued to contemplate what she coined as the "impenetrable mystery" of the relationship between God's will and human choices.
