Ever notice how ‘christians’ who object to the government paying for health care never complain about the government paying for bombs?
This is because there is a deep and profound and widespread ignorance, among Christians, not to mention the world, as to what Christianity is. No wonder the hapless and theologically ignorant Justin Bieber thinks that he can start his ‘own church’. He’ll start something, and it will have adherents, but it won’t be a Church in any meaningful sense.
This is why theology needs to be taught in congregations. Where theology isn’t taught, ignorant heresy takes root. Christian instruction is vital to Christianity. Where theological education is absent, so is the Church, and so is Christian faith, regardless of how much the ignorant emergents and their ilk decry theology and its essentialness.
Learn the Christian faith or do not speak of it or attach yourself to it. Ignorance may be bliss, but it isn’t Christian.
