Watch this Video: John Crowder explains how Christology is absolutely paramount for getting our eyes off ourselves and our own works and avoiding these two ditches (legalism or gnosticism) of religious thinking.
“Recently a large ministry denounced a particular speaker who has been verging into strange doctrine and bizarre imaginative beliefs. It’s caused a bit of a shockwave. It is merely the outgrowth and evolution of many gnostic tendencies that have already been fully infested in the charismatic church today.” – John Crowder
1 Corinthians 2:1-5
2 And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. 2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 3 I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling. 4 My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, 5 so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.
