American Christianity has become the periphery faith. Christianity is no longer the center of a Christian’s identify, but just another facet of one’s life. I’ve been reading Philosophical Foundation For a Christian Worldview by Moreland and Craig.
It is a sad reality but true. The main institution of Western American civilization is the University. But Universities are no longer teaching truth and theology. Becuase Universities have lost sight of truth, so has our nation. “False ideas are the greatest obstacle to the reception of the Gospel.”
Christian faith in America is wide but not deep. Hollow men, empty shelves that do not know what they believe. Christians used to be able to argue basic fundamental arguments for their faith but today American Christians are very shallow and lost the understandings of philosophy and theology.
R.C. Sproul has called this the most anti-intellectual period in the history of the of the church!
That sucks! Let us not continue to be this way. Our generation is not as cultivated in the realms of philosophy, intellect, history, theology as our previous forefathers! Let us make serious change!
