  • When Christianity was young, the focus was on Jesus Christ and His kingdom, not theology To be sure, there are foundational doctrines that Christians have always considered essential to the faith But somehow the things considered essential have grown from a few sentences to a long list of theological tenets, many of which were unknown to the early Christians In the begWhen Christianity was young, the focus was on Jesus Christ and His kingdom, not theology To be sure, there are foundational doctrines that Christians have always considered essential to the faith But somehow the things considered essential have grown from a few sentences to a long list of theological tenets, many of which were unknown to the early Christians In the beginning, Christians understood that the essence of Christianity was an obedient love faith relationship with Jesus Christ This was not just any relationship, but a relationship that produced genuine kingdom fruit But then something happened Theologians took over the church Once they took over, the emphasis soon changed from godly fruit to orthodox theology Christianity became Doctrianity In this provocative work, Bercot argues that it is time to let Jesus speak through the pages of the Gospels without filtering His teachings through the denials and mental gymnastics of the theologians It is time for the children of the kingdom to stand up for Jesus and the gospel He preached and for the theologians to sit down.

    1. Bercot, once again, makes some well intentioned points backed by some atrocious history He woefully simplifies the Pharisaic movement, makes a hypocritical attempt to undermine scholarly linguistic work while at the same time using knowledge of Greek and Hebrew to make his points, makes really uncomfortable comparisons of our misunderstanding of scripture to evolution which nearly gave me convulsions and actually argues that English is somehow a better language than Greek because it has words l [...]


    2. Easy to read His basic viewpoint is that Theologians have squashed Kingdom Christians by making Christianity about Doctrine than Fruit In its basic premise I agree, but Mr Bercot himself gives HIS Theology while telling us that Theologians are dangerous He is doing the very thing that he says is dangerous Great book to bring balance to todays Theologians especially Arrogant Arm Chair Theologians


    3. There is a lot of thought provoking truth in this book that has impacted how I view my role among other believers as well as how much cautious I am of any man made doctrine exceeding the 63 word statement of faith that the earliest believers held to.Just a slight downside is that an instance or two, in his passion on the subject, I think David Bercot reaches a little far with generalizations to support a point But in overlooking those few instances, I believe his arguments still stand well supp [...]


    4. Great bookDavid Bercot is a Historian who writes from an intellectually honest perspective He doesn t say what people want to hearjust to sell books There are some inconvenient truths in the history of Christianity and he is faithful in pointing them out.Great quote In the aftermath of Nicea, Jesus words, follow me were no longer the focus of the institutional church It was now study me And that is the real problem For Doctrianity requires no real relationship with Christ and no fruit It require [...]


    5. Read the book twice It s worth of my time to re read it It challenge me and to stick to what the Gospel really says without filtering or reinterpreting it I come to realized many follow the doctrine of man This book should be real and challenge every Christians to reconsider.


    6. This is SO Good You need to read it For real READ this book It is eye opening.Short, sweet, and to the point Read it.
