Gushee’s Wrong, Again

His attempt to explain the decline of American Christianity misses the real reason altogether.  I suspect because he overlooked it because he is among those who are striving very hard to make the difference between authentic Christian faith and culture disappear by accommodation.

Gushee and his left leaning ilk want Christians to accept everything that matches the agenda of the liberal extreme of the Christian faith thereby eviscerating it of any meaning or significance.

In short, Gushee and those like him are among those who are speeding the decline of Christianity (or rather, the appearance of Christianity; the true Church is unaffected by their attempts since the true Church will have nothing of it) but they don’t realize it because they actually imagine that their acceptance of deviancy is good for the Church.  Ha.

What Gushee and Held Evans and Bolz Weber and the rest of their kind need to ask themselves is the simple question- how well has accomodationism worked for the C of E?  How well has it ever worked?

    I find it interesting that these notoriety seekers find the coat-tail of Christianity a great place to hang when it comes to the pursuit of relevance! They also remind me of the barbarians in Melita waiting for Paul to die as a murderer with a viper wrapped around his arm… only to, a few minutes later, see him as a “god”. Yea, these doomsayers believe they are the first ones to come up with the persiflage about the demise of Christianity during its history… and will be the same to realize that however poisonous is their imaginary viper that is now curling around the Body of Christ, it will soon be shaken off… In mere moments they will “change their minds” and see Christianity for what it is… Acts 28:1-6. Christianity will survive Gushee and many others like him!

    As I started reading the list, it seemed like he would have some good points–not necessarily original, but important things to keep in mind–and then I got to “American Christianity is not producing many compelling leaders” and threw up in my mouth a little.
