Jesus on the Anti-Christ

by Pastor Luke Penrod | October 3, 2019

For centuries scientists believed that the earth was the stationary center of the universe and everything, including the sun and stars orbited around it.

Consider the story of the spider. Aristotle classified the spider as an insect. Insects, it was known, have six legs. So for centuries no one questioned the great Aristotle, and it was just commonly assumed that spiders were insects and therefore had 6 legs.

It was Jean Baptiste Lamarck who presented the classification of the spider as an arachnid having eight legs.

Merely because something is believed for centuries doesn’t make it true.

Could it be that a tradition like one of these long held ideas has slipped into the Christian church?

Is it possible that many have accepted falsehood in the place of truth and very few people today question it?
