​Today we’re discussing the incorrect theology behind a recent Facebook post made by Pastor Steven Furtick. He asserted that Jesus doesn’t change a person, but rather reveals who they always were. Although we try to give Steven the benefit of the doubt here, there are professing Christians out there who preach a Gospel that is more focused on self-love rather than God. Fortunately, there is plenty of biblical evidence to debunk this idea.
