James MacDonald says that there are four myths attacking churches today. Here they are:
1: The Word of God is not sufficient. The Word of God does not have all of the answers that people need for the complex problems of the twenty-first century man. Instead of the message of the Word of God, we need psychology—literally, the study of the soul.
2: The Word of God is not sophisticated. If you really want to reach people—boomers, GenX’ers, post-moderns—you need a more sophisticated hook than the Word of God.
3: The Word of God is not settled. The Word is still emerging—the message is still changing.
4: The Word of God is not sure or reliable. Christ is not unique, and His unique message is to be rejected in a world of pluralism.
