Serving Two Masters: Byron Borger, Curator of Heretics and Apostates

Byron Borger, Owner,  Hearts & Minds: More Than a Bookstore

We are working on a series of posts offering a case study of the results of serving two masters:

“No one can serve (Gr. slave — HT John MacArthur)  two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.” Matthew 6:24

Not having much time this morning, conveniently, Byron posted a vlog which summarizes his position on Rob Bell’s new book, Love Wins.  Byron, like many others find themselves defending Bell’s latest book because they have been historically avid proponents and in Byron’s case avid booksellers of Bell’s entire collection of books and videos.  Faced with the classic “two roads diverged in a woods” dilemma — Byron takes the road most traveled.

Interestingly, I learned on Byron’s post that even John Piper (Byron describes the tweet as ill-advised and cryptic) tweeted “Farewell Rob Bell”. We are hopeful that Piper knows when to cut himself loose from a drifting ship.

As a revered leader of college students since Byron is financially tied to a paraministry organization,  Coalition for Christian Outreach (CCO) and the colleges where CCO camps out, Byron features an extraordinary inventory of  ecumenical and pop-spiritual leaders.  In our area CCO is found on Geneva College, Grove City College, Waynesburg College, and University of Pittsburgh campuses.  Byron is often invited to speak at these colleges. This past fall he was a speaker at Geneva College’s Chapel (10/26/10).

Here is the video to kick off our series as Byron scrambles to maintain his edge in the modern-day Areopagus market of thinker-extrodinaires and defends the deception he sells to college students.

  1. Only a heretic can promote another heretic.

    Lord, have mercy!

    • Does not surprise me about Grove City College. They have no problem allowing the anti-Deity of Christ- -anti-Trinitarian Christian Millennial Fellowship to use their facilities for their Bible conferences. Read here
