Time mark 17:57 "And yet people will hold me accountable for the Westboro Baptist church people and things like that. And I’m like wait a minute. That’s not my life. That’s not how I approach people. That’s not my perspective. I do not want to be painted with that brush. I demand the right of self definition of what my faith is. We all demand that right. And yet for many Christians we refuse that right to Muslims."
This is nothing but a subject claim to identity and definition. Scripture however, tells us to judge all things by the standard of Scripture. It alone defines what is right and wrong, true and erroneous; what is a true Christian and a false one. In trying to individualize all people of all religions, White has removed the ability to show the enslavement of the sinner in his own religion (making self-made religions within a religion--and by the way, isn't "self identity" exactly what we see society advocating when it comes to race and gender now?) and spiritual harlotry of those claiming to be saved but still within that religion (any others other than biblical Christianity; for example the New Apostolic Reformation, Word of Faith Movement, Spirituality). He also used himself as the standard against the Westboro church. The biblical Christian would use Scripture as the standard to show how heretical that church and what he or she purportedly holds to. Pluralism or syncretism is always rejected by God. To take tenents of two opposing bodies of doctrine like the 5 Solas - TULIP and also hold to Charismaticism, which is entirely diametrically opposed to the 5 Solas and TULIP, as a current example in Evangelicalism, is self-contradictory and so we have more proof of this Post-Modernism, self-individualized religions. It's creating new religions including new kinds of "Christians" which according to Scripture do not exist by reason of doctrine and practice. To customize adherence to a false religion--taking the parts one likes, and trying to discard the rest (like a buffet--pick and choose), isn't possible --it's dishonest and inconsistent, especially when you still take the label of one or both of those sets of beliefs. It didn't work with Israel and it can't work with Christians (2 Cor. 6:14-18). This is doctrinal triage. It's trying to find "good" in what God says is wicked. The standard to test a religion and it's adherent must be objective and it must be able to to deal with both doctrine and practice; we hold them up to their religion's standard of official teachings and teachers in addition to Scripture.
1Jn 1:4 These things we write, so that our joy may be made complete.
1Jn 5:13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.
Act 17:11 Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.
1Ti 1:3 As I urged you upon my departure for Macedonia, remain on at Ephesus so that you may instruct certain men not to teach strange doctrines,
1Ti 1:4 nor to pay attention to myths and endless genealogies, which give rise to mere speculation rather than furthering the administration of God which is by faith.
1Ti 1:5 But the goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.
1Ti 1:6 For some men, straying from these things, have turned aside to fruitless discussion,
1Ti 1:7 wanting to be teachers of the Law, even though they do not understand either what they are saying or the matters about which they make confident assertions.
