Ben Shapiro Rejects Jesus and Red Sea Miracle
Ben Shapiro is a blogger, speaker, and media personality who is held in high esteem by conservatives for his common-sense political commentaries. Because of his intelligent defenses of conservative positions, Shapiro has amassed a following among family-values-oriented evangelical Christians. Appealing to this base, Shapiro recently interviewed such influential Christians as John MacArthur and William Lane Craig on his eponymous show. Unfortunately, Ben Shapiro is an enemy of the cross.
In an interview with popular podcaster Joe Rogan, Shapiro shared his opinion of Jesus Christ. Denying that Jesus was even so much as a prophet, Shapiro, an observant Jew, stated that he believes Jesus was a failed revolutionary, one of many, who was ultimately executed by the Roman government for inciting a revolt. That a Jew denies the divinity of Christ will come as no surprise to many. However, not only does Shapiro deny the New Testament miracles of Jesus, he also denies the Old Testament miracle of the parting of the Red Sea. When pressed by Rogan about his beliefs in Old Testament miracles, Shapiro cites a possible naturalistic explanation (wind) for God’s miraculous salvation of his people.
Plain and simple, Ben Shapiro does not believe the Bible. Christians should think twice about sharing his resources. The Christian’s battle is not against flesh and blood but a spiritual one. While Shapiro’s political positions are wise and responsible, his spiritual claims are subversive to the Kingdom of God. Shapiro is effectively a secularist fighting a secular (and, for him, profitable) political battle. If anything, he is opposed to Christianity.
