One Christmas Day, Kevin Wesley posted a question on Facebook that you don’t always expect from a pastor: “What if the bible, is NOT the word of God?”
A day later, he made a video elaborating on that idea leaving the impression that he no longer believes in God,the son of God or the bible. In one of his most recent Youtube lives he stated that God doesnt exist, there is no son of God and the “characters” in the bible are all fabricated while wearing the ankh of Pharaoh cross and an elephant pendent around his neck. His rants can be witnessed throughout YouTube as he gains a new type of crowd using “preacher skills” learned from his time as a pastor. He accepts praises and exhalations from the people no doubt making him more famous now than he ever could’ve been as a preacher,[who ever heard of him before now?] even convincing his followers to give him “donations”.
I put up a post yesterday on Facebook that said, “What if the Bible is not the word of God?” Needless to say, people were appalled by — disgusted even… I’m quoting them, okay?
They said they’ve seen me preach, they have seen me cry, they have seen me minister, they have seen me with my hands raised, loving Jesus. And that’s true. I was a preacher. I was a minister. I was a dancer. All these things. I was a gospel rapper.
But if I can do all these things, and you witnessed my sincerity while I was doing these things, don’t you think I must have came across something sincere? Something that’s so valid that it shook my belief, even when I didn’t want it to?
So you say you’re going to pray for me. You don’t think I’ve prayed? You don’t think I’ve begged this Jesus I grew up believing in to just show me the validity? You don’t think I researched and tried to prove that this Bible was no doubt the inspired word of God?
I tried. And it’s just not true. Okay?
So [there] comes a time in every man’s life when he has to make a choice. I understand there’s a lot of people who saw me be Christian, who saw me love Jesus, pray to Jesus, worship Jesus. I understand that. But to all of you people that I love dearly, I have to tell you: I am making a choice to stand on what I now know to be truth. And if you don’t wanna be my friend anymore, then you were never my friend to begin with…
Wesley then rattled off a brief list of why he doesn’t accept the Bible (or the characters in it) as true. Historical evidence, for example, doesn’t back up biblical stories. The fossil record doesn’t match up with what we’d expect from a recent global flood. There were civilizations and relics that existed long before the biblical “Adam” was ever created.
