Making the Word of God of Rightful Effect
October 29, 2018
Robert Cornuke, dedicated Bible History explorer, has returned from an eight-year expedition through Christian Church history to expose practices that have hardened into traditions, some of which challenge, and even transcend the honor due only to the very Word of God.
Delving into 42 specific sore spots that have long gone gathering dust, Cornuke leads the reader into sensitive queries using as his centerpiece, and primary focal point, the Roman Catholic Church!
Given the Vatican claims of pre-eminence, their magnitudinous and consequent influence down through the ages, Cornuke admits the R.C’s have produced some of the most notably honorable practitioners of Christianity, while garnering by default of being the largest representative horde of professing believers on the planet, an expected equal number of scoundrels, hustlers, and outright villains in Christendom.
Cornuke touches briefly on Protestantism, mostly lauding the Roman Catholic priests who became the storied dissenters through the centuries, Wycliffe, Hus, Luther, et al. These defenders of Holy Writ deserve all the media available.
Yet Cornuke’s most polished efforts are his Pauline moves, “3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”
After all, we who claim the name of Jesus, will one day meet Him face to face at the Bema.
With this prophecy looming larger as the days wax on, one can’t help but admire Cornuke’s fastidious lines as he hauls a straight course.
A follow-up volume is mouth-watering to contemplate.
This can of worms has only just been opened. And the reader rests easy, recognizing this isn’t Cornuke’s first trek through the briar patch.
Essentially, Cornuke is making the Word of God of rightful effect.
