Frikirkenet Is A Danish Disgrace - My Life In Denmark (Part 19)
Last year I discussed the pathetic and embarrassing Danish coalition of "evangelical churches" called Frikirkenet (the post can be viewed here). Yes, the people who labelled this outstanding witnessing video as "an embarrassment" (my apologies that the english subtitles seem to have been removed from the video), and the leadership experts who hired a new age philosopher to train their pastors, have now put on a stunning display of their gross biblical incompetence and immense stupidity. It would all be hysterically funny if it was not so tragic and hostile to true Christianity in Denmark. In the latest edition of their magazine "Domino" they decided to impart this amazing biblical insight to their readers - that they could not find anywhere in the Bible where sex before marriage is forbidden!!!! Frikirkenet was not endorsing fornication, they were just saying that it is a bad idea but we have no biblical support for this assertion. The Danish readers can view the article here.
When Paul says to the Corinthians that no fornicator will inherit the Kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 6:9-10) he is not exactly giving his approval for the practice! Not only is Frikirkenet's statement a frighteningly dangerous message to send to hormonal teenagers (many of whom are already heavily immersed in this lifestyle), it is also an absolutely absurd display of biblical illiteracy and incompetence. And if someone wants to argue about the Greek word "porneia" not necessarily meaning fornication then they should take a look at Jesus' warning in Matthew 5:28 where he goes so far as to liken lustful thoughts to adultery. Does anyone really think they can extend that theology and come to see fornication as something that is not sinful.
Possibly more tragic than all of this, is the fact that accommodating something that is sinful actually hinders the God's holy law from doing its convicting work, and driving the fearful sinner to the Savior. A sinless Savior Who substituted for fornicators when He died on the cross taking the punishment that they deserve and granting them the righteousness that they never earned. The beautiful Gospel gets lost in all of this!
Those of you in Frikirkenet need to either repent of your opposition to the Gospel and the authority of Scripture, or severely rebuke those who are responsible for their sewer of bad theology, or abandon this movement entirely. Those of you in Frikirkenet who do treasure the Lord Jesus Christ need to "man up" and voice your opposition. Please remove all financial support for such a pathetic and ungodly organization because Frikirkenet does nothing but harm the furtherance of the Gospel in Denmark. I am disgusted!
