Although I disagree with Michael’s view about Genesis, I believe his real problem is that he follows the wrong Jesus. Gungor offers the possibility that Jesus was wrong by believing in an historical Adam and Noah.
“And even if He was wrong, even if He did believe that Noah was a historical person, or Adam was a historical person, and ended up being wrong, I don’t understand how that even would deny the divinity of Christ,” he continued. “The point is it wouldn’t freak me out if He was wrong about it, in His human side.”

The problem with Michael’s idea is that if Jesus was wrong, He would not be divine. This is because God cannot be in error.
What Mr. Gungor believes about Jesus is of vital importance. If the Jesus in whom Michael believes is wrong, he is not divine. If he is not divine, his death is inadequate to pay for sin. Furthermore, a Jesus that is not divine is a Jesus who is unable to rise from the dead. This type of Jesus is not the Jesus of the Bible and is a false Messiah.
Faith is only as good as the object of that faith. Believing in a non-Biblical Jesus, in the end, is of no value. It is only by resting upon the right Jesus, the Jesus of the Bible, that one finds forgiveness of sin and eternal life.
