A few months ago I commented on Bill Muehlenberg’s site:
It is easy to say that we want a shakeup of the Church, and it is easy to long for a revived Church. But the practical (spiritually attuned) aspects of this have been resisted by some of the best Christian voices, who either have capitulated in part to the program of the Left or have had weak theology which has not adequately primed them for a victory position.
The entire Ruddock Review is of no consequence for those whose authority is first in Scripture and in the Spirit of God. To advocate for “religious freedom” then is entirely misguided. Today’s ideological war against Christianity is not something that we could have done anything about, because it already began with the French Revolution, and Bible prophecy shows how today’s state of the Church was inevitable.
Revelation 3 as a prophecy about today’s churches shows how the call is for all Christians to repent and get right. You can develop out of weak theology and we are able to extricate ourselves from the influence of Enlightenment philosophy/Leftwing ideology within Christianity.
Here’s an example of how far towards left field veneer-style Christianity is sliding. A semi-political pamphlet was sent out requesting prayer for something called the “Human Rights Law Alliance”.
Isaiah 59:14, 15
14 And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.
15 Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.
If left-leaning propaganda about so-called “religious freedom” and human rights advocacy (the main philosophy of social justice warriors) is being called upon, then that’s very flimsy and does not deserve the title “Christian”, seeing the philosophy of the Enlightenment, the French Revolution and the entirety of modernist Infidelity is ANTI-Christian.
21 Now, behold, thou trustest upon the staff of this bruised reed, even upon Egypt, on which if a man lean, it will go into his hand, and pierce it: so is Pharaoh king of Egypt unto all that trust on him.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
