A) book of the Bible
B) comic book story
The correct answer according to the pastor of (lack of) Momentum Church in Cleveland, Ohio is B. COMIC BOOK STORIES!
He traded in preaching from the Bible to preaching from comic book stories. Let's review what God's Word has to say on this issue...
2 Timothy 4:1 In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: 2 Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage — with great patience and careful instruction. 3 For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4 They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths..
Let's see if we've got this straight.
God's Word/The Bible = Truth
Comic book super heros = Myths
