On January 22 2022, John Cooper from Skillet declared war on deconstruction… these wrist-mounted-smoke-throwing bad boys will likely be enlisted in the battle for “truth over feeling”.
To say “Jesus Christ Is Lord” in the first century would be like saying Nat Turner, leader of a slave rebellion was US president in 1831. Jesus said “the last will be first” so in 2022 the equivalent of saying Jesus Christ is Lord is something like “Black Lives Matter”

Deconstruction Throughout History

The pattern we see through the Bible is that Abraham deconstructed the faith of his ancestors, Moses also deconstructed the dominant Egyptian theology. Jesus said of the dominant religion of his day it was perpetrated by snakes; he came to bring good news to the poor, “woe to you who are rich!” He was accused of wanting to abolish the law and the prophets, he said he was only there to fulfill them. Paul deconstructed his faith, he said he was a ‘Hebrew of Hebrews’ but considered it all loss in comparison with knowing the crucified insurrectionist Jesus.
