From the back cover: Are you embarrassed by the Bible?
The Bible is full of stories that make us uncomfortable: Israelites stoned adulterers, slaves were told to obey masters, Jesus declared that sinners go to hell, and God commanded His people to kill others, both young and the old alike. In response, many of us opt for a feel-good faith by embracing only the socially acceptable verses and passages.
In Uncensored, Brian Cosby disrupts this deadly trajectory by explaining why all Scripture is God-breathed, holy, and essential to us as believers. And he invites you to quit hiding behind the fig leaf of half-truth and embrace a healthy, passionate faith.
Let’s start off with an easy question shall we? How many days did creation take? Science tells us millions of years, God tells us He did it in six days and took a rest on the seventh day. Which version do you believe? Pastor Cosby gives lots of information and you will have to choose your answer and, Let me tell you now, some of what he presents will shake your belief system. We have made a mix of what science tells us and what God tells us and Pastor Cosby wants to purify our belief system. And he wants to do it in two parts. Part One: Embarrassed By The Bible shows how the fundamental unity of the Old and New Testaments helps put many of the “offensive” passages in their proper perspective. Part Two: The Art Of Censorship examines eight of the most frequently “picked over” themes in The Bible and why an unashamed affirmation of these doctrines is needed for a healthy, God-honoring faith. Getting what The Bible tells us correctly will provide us a healthy, balanced faith. And the healthier we are the better off we will be to everyone around us. I recommend it highly.
