Word of Life Church with Brian Zahnd: Christ of Heaven and Hell
“Faith is not primarily about the doctrines in your head, but about who you trust to make you safe and give you abundant life.”
What is faith? Brian Zahnd suggests that we have turned faith into merely the opinions we hold about Christology and other doctrines. He references author Matthew Bates’ book Salvation by Allegiance Alone and argues that faith is more about allegiance than doctrine. Faith, he asserts, is about who we trust and who we pledge our lives to.
Zahnd implores us not to put our trust in the modern empire we are living in, but rather to put all of our faith and trust in our Lord Jesus Christ.
