GUEST: BRANDON KIMBER, film producer, American Gospel: Christ Alone and Christ Crucified

Christians shouldn’t be surprised that professing Christendom in America is full of fakes, frauds, and charlatans huckstering false teaching and non-saving gospels.  In fact, the apostle Peter guaranteed it in his second letter:

“But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies” (2 Peter 2:1).

Lack of surprise at this should not mean lack of discernment and unwillingness to point it out.  After all, misrepresenting God and His Word are grievous sins and people are terribly impacted when they are drawn in by false teachers.

This week on The Christian Worldview, we are going to discuss some of the false gospels being propagated in America—moralistic preaching, the works gospel, the “attractional” church, the health, wealth, and prosperity gospel, and more—in light of the film, American Gospel—Christ Alone.

Brandon Kimber, the creator of this film and a second film on progressive Christianity titled, American Gospel—Christ Crucified, joins us this week. We will start this series of interviews by discussing the first film on the false gospels in America.

We will also touch on the dramatic week in politics, with President Trump’s State of the Union speech and his acquittal in the Senate on impeachment charges.
