What about the Gnostics?

Do you ever feel like people are just too gullible? It always surprises me to hear good people — even Christians — being gullible concerning religious matters. For example, good people have asked me questions like:

  • Pastor, do you think The Da Vinci Code is true?
  • Pastor, do you think Jesus married Mary Magdalene?
  • Pastor, what about these other gospels?

I guess I shouldn’t think of people as being gullible. It’s more a matter of not being informed as to what the Bible says and what it does not say. And it’s a matter of not understanding early church history.

This sermon addresses these kinds of questions.

While there is a good deal of Bible text in the sermon, the key verse is 2 Peter 1:16 (NIV) We did not follow cleverly invented stories when we told you about the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
