HICKORY VALLEY, TN - From behind the screen of his computer, in the humble makeshift office in his unfinished basement, discernment blogger and self-described polemicist Keith Frye takes on all of Christendom, exposing dangerous, unsound teachings for the edification of his hundreds of readers - "separating the wheat from the chaff," as he puts it.
In a move that is sure to place him atop the totem pole of influential Christian watchblogs, Frye made a compelling case Tuesday that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was in fact an insufferable heretic whose dangerous teachings led countless souls away from pure, biblical Christianity.
"Christ was not a Christian - not in any sense of the term," he wrote in his 1000-word manifesto, titled "Son of God, Son of Heresy," in which he accused Jesus of "cheapening God's grace" while "neglecting doctrine for the sake of a social gospel - which is no gospel at all."
"Don't get me wrong, I appreciate his devotion to the poor and downtrodden. But we are called to be discerning," read his hard-nosed manifesto, noting that the undesirable company the King of Kings was known to keep at times "speaks volumes" about the darkness in his heart.
"When you cut through the smoke and mirrors, what you see is blatant apostasy. God will hold him accountable, brethren!" Frye wrote. "Be sure to subscribe to my newsletter to stay on the cutting edge of Christian discernment."
