EV Bishop of Austria presents strange understanding of the Gospel

The Evangelical Bishop of Austria presents a very strange understanding of the Gospel based on his very strange-seeming view of heaven on earth. Routine impiety compressed into a few sentences.

Evangelical hypocrisy

As with the “spiritual houses” under the umbrella organization of the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD), the Protestant churches in Austria no longer seem to be doing particularly well in their self-image of following in the footsteps of Martin Luther. This institution is more likely to stand on one of Luther’s toes in its rainbow-colored high-heeled shoes in order to enjoy treating it with the extra-pointed stiletto heel.

A strange understanding of faith

Confusion question marks
An exclusive world of faith

What is faith, what is heaven and who should a person trust? Bishop Michael Chalupka from the Evangelical Church of Austria questions what heaven on earth would be. The German theologian Manfred Josuttis once gave the answer. This would be the case “if we could believe everything we hear. If we could believe everything we see to be good. If we could trust everyone we meet.” (Source). For Chalupka it is clear that “heaven on earth does not exist.”

Nevertheless, “we” know the direction that leads to heaven. This direction is called “trust”. This is the “heavenly currency that has proven itself in the world. The principle of trust also applies in road traffic, said the Protestant bishop. Everyone can get home safely if everyone follows the rules, with the exception of children. Lie in If there is a fundamental misuse of road traffic, then chaos is inevitable. Without basic trust, one cannot get through life and that is why the quote, “Trust is good, control is better” is wrong in all respects. This saying, which is “always” attributed to Lenin, turns everything up the head, says Chalupka.

Everyone who trusts that life can go well with one another and one’s neighbor will have an easier time in life. But this also runs the risk of experiencing disappointment.
“There is no heaven on earth,” repeated the bishop. This is where faith comes into play and this faith means trusting and living despite the risk of disappointment. Trusting that heaven remains the goal.

No biblical approach at all

Institutional churches in their element

The fact that Jesus Christ is completely ignored in such “spiritual wisdom” is already common and unfortunately also ordinary. In the course of ecumenism, participants avoid the fact of exclusive redemption through Jesus Christ like the “devil avoids holy water”. Within the Roman Catholic Church, the reference to holy water actually describes the opposite. Chalupka has clearly taken another step ahead. His philosophy doesn’t even include the “aspect of God”. The Protestant bishop does not associate anything, not even his quoted “heaven” with God in any way.

Instead, he completely excludes the redemptive work of Jesus Christ and the kingdom of God that has long existed here spiritually, and places people at the absolute center of all things. Trust your fellow human beings, is the message. And faith is also directed towards one’s neighbor. Faith in your neighbors. Chalupka’s philosophy couldn’t be more human-centered. As a Protestant bishop, he should “actually” know that faith according to the Gospel describes a completely different path.

As a reminder:

Luke 17:21:
Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

John 14:6:
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

The Evangelical Bishop of Austria, Chalupka, clearly represents the “Gospel of Rome”. The united human family, united in “faith,” for communal rebellion against the God of the Bible. A full-blooded “ecumenist” (Info). As a representative of the false prophet, a steep “career” of false hopes in prospect, but nevertheless for a very short time and doomed to total failure (Revelation 19:20). All signs indicate that such messages as those of the EV Bishop of Austria and their proclaimers should be treated with unreserved suspicion.

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Matthew 7:15
