Why We Need Confessional Christianity in a Clueless Christian Culture

by Dale Partridge

Unfortunately, the vast majority of Christians know very little about what they believe. They say things like, “Jesus is my theology” or “I don’t need doctrine I just need the Bible” or “my only creed is Christ.” In addition, we have several other groups of people who call themselves Christians but their definition of the Bible, God, Christ, and the Church are out of step with historic biblical Christianity. The truth is, if someone calls themselves a Christian today, that needs to be qualified. But how do we do that?

In this episode of Real Christianity, pastor Dale Partridge tackles how we can discern genuine believers from deceived religious groups, cultic movements, and heretics.

This Episode’s Question

“Pastor Dale, I’m a youth pastor and in recent years we have had more people join our church from Bethel, Hillsong, or one of these other mega-churches who promote a health and wealth-like Gospel. Additionally, we have also had people join from several fundamentalist Baptist churches here in the south. Essentially, I’m realizing that many of these new people at our church are unaware that they hold a variety of heretical ideas about the Gospel, the church, and the Bible. How can I help bring our church, as a whole, to an orthodox view of Christian doctrine?
