Leave God Out Of It
Jan 9, 2022 • Dr. Delman Coates
There are many different types of malpractice; medical malpractice, legal malpractice. There’s even malpractice for engineers if they provide mathematical and structural recommendations that result in building being built with faulty foundations, and walls that cause harm and death. When an error occurs due to negligence, or when a mistake occurs that could have otherwise been avoided, the practitioner is guilty of malpractice. And while malpractice cases can be brought against people in various professions, there’s unfortunately no such option when it comes to the spiritual malpractices that occurs in pulpits all across America. Tragically, there is no theological analogue of the Hippocratic Oath that preachers and those who claim to represent God have to take, which is unfortunate because millions of people past and prevents have been hurt, harmed, and injured by the toxic theologies and poisonous preaching that is promulgated in pulpits, television programs, and in Christian publications all around the world. So in today’s message we are going to look at the dangers of theological malpractice and discuss how to avoid misusing Scripture in our day-to-day lives.
