The American Christian Church has officially slipped into the Twilight Zone!!!!
While perusing some Liberal Blogs, I came across a posting that makes the same point that I made two Sunday’s ago in my Sunday School class. Read this quote, note that it is from a Liberal who is a member of “The Alliance for Moderate, Liberal and Progressive Blogs”! There are very few things I say amen to, when liberals speak, but this one hits the nail on the head. Here’s the quote…
“H. Richard Niebuhr once observed that the theology of liberal Protestantism was “A God without wrath who brought men without sin into a kingdom without judgment through the ministrations of a Christ without a cross.” It is interesting to read this comment because Niebuhr was referring to the liberal side of the faith but it is the same theology that many on the conservative side of the faith use in their preaching today. It is the essence of what are called “seeker-friendly” services. It is the very message that Joel Osteen and other modern day pastors are preaching! If you go to the Lakewood Church website and search around for the words "God" and "Jesus", you will not find them. They just aren't there. But the words "Joel Osteen" and "Ministries" are everywhere. There's no sin or judgment or even kingdom -- much less a Christ on a Cross -- suffering. It is almost as if they are ashamed to preach the words of Jesus.” - Link
When liberals are noticing that there is a problem with the messages being taught from Conservative Evangelical pulpits, that means the problem is REALLY REALLY REALLY BAD! It’s like going to the Doctor and having him tell you that he’s discovered that you have cancer and then telling you that you’ve only got minutes to live.
