In this episode, Sam explains how Christians have been misled by the synonymous use of the terms Scripture and “Word,” which has resulted in great misunderstanding, mishandling, and misuse of the Bible. In John 5:39 Jesus rebuked the religious people of His time for this same approach to the Bible saying “you search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these (Scriptures) that testify about Me, and you are unwilling to come to Me that you may have life.” The Word, or Logos in Greek, is God Himself in the person of Jesus, not the black and white letters of the Bible. Approaching the Scriptures with this understanding will shift you from using the Bible for more knowledge to using it as a doorway and access point to hearing His voice, the Voice of the living and operative Word of God.
Welcome to THE CHURCH IS BROKEN podcast.
Join Sam Neider, a former pastor, on his journey of enlightenment as he shares his story of walking through darkness and despair to lay hold of the LIGHT that he could not find in 30 years of seeking, searching, and serving in the church.
Sam exposes why the church is broken and how the misaimed, man-made system fails at bringing light into the world and at producing transformation in the lives of the believers.
Sam will empower you, the listener, with the good news of living the KINGDOM LIFE, based on the TRUTH of what Jesus really taught and commissioned us to do - the TRUTH that has been veiled by the broken system of the church.
