Using Illustrations from Culture To Help People Understand Jesus Christ Can Be A Good Idea … Getting People to Worship False Gods Is Not
by Sandy Simpson, 5/29/14
Cultural illustrations can be helpful but only if taught in the light of the true accounts in the written Word. Putting cultural accounts on the same par as Scripture by using the mythology of pagan nations to replace what needs to be taught about Jesus Christ and the True God degrades the Bible accounts, in fact “blasphemizes” them. There is only one Name under heaven by which men may be saved, and there is only one Name of God, revealed by God Himself.
Acts 4:12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
Exodus 3:14 God said to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.’”
Zechariah 14:9 NIV The LORD will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one LORD, and his name the only name.
Using the names of “foreign gods”, as the Bible calls them, is anathema to YHWH.
Joshua 24:23 “Now then,” said Joshua, “throw away the foreign gods that are among you and yield your hearts to the Lord, the God of Israel.”
