In this lecture, Dr. Tonstad continues with his fifth lecture in the series “Cosmic Conflict and the future (of America).” These lectures are an expansion of his class on the book of Revelation. In this talk, Dr. Tonstad discussed the relationship between accountability, infallibility and coercion in church history.
Most of Christianity since the Constantine has practiced un-accountability, infallibility and coercion (which naturally goes hand-in-hand with unaccountability and infallibility). What about God? Most would agree that God is infallible, but is he accountable? Does he even invite us to hold him accountable and to question his ways? Does God’s infallibility cause him to use coercive methods?
