Quite a claim to make without any links?

But as always, there is an OPPOSING point of view--others who are not of this fold--who see the degradation of generational moral standards as emanating straight from the evangelical camp.


Years ago, this Evangelical wizardry was directed against divorce and remarriage, later the issue became blacks marrying whites, today it’s homosexuality and gay marriage. All with the same battle cry, “we are right, you are wrong; repent, turn to our Jesus, think, believe and behave like us, or pay the price.” This has been the underlying missional/discipleship philosophy and posture of Evangelical Christianity for decades. “You are lost, we are found, our job is to get you to our Jesus and “disciple” you to think, believe, and behave like us.” The world is our project, people are a notch on the “got saved” belt. Baptism is an initiation rite, and membership is the entry way into our club.

Yes Christians should ``not fight with flesh and blood , but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of the darkness of this world , against spiritual wickedness in the high places.``..... Ephesians 6:12.................See Christians need to repent of antichrist rationalization against the grace of God which is needed to fight these spirits of the world , as going out to the world without the authority with redemption of Jesus is spiritual weakness ........... See Jesus can fix these issues of sin with ease , as when Christians go out a and try to fix these without God then it become a added issue of condemnation which will backfire and come right back at Christians ...........God helps those who helps others overcome

How is it possible to "fix" Christianity? It is the faith itself which seems to be the common element that is behind so many evils done in the world.

There never was a time when America was "moral." We had slavery, for Pete's sake.

Genocide anyone? International conquests, colonialism, attempts at world domination. And we have yet to discuss the events that have been perpetrated on our own soil again each other since Reconstruction. .

Not in the slightest.

Wealthy fascists are behind the decline, as they were behind WW2. You need to make the time to watch 'JFK to 911 a Everything is a Rich Man's trick' - it's an eye opener.

I read the article. Whenever G-d reveals something about Himself, in this case, grace, the pendulum always swings strongly one way to the extreme in excess, forgetting all other aspects of Him, until finally they get more revelation and begin the journey back into being centered and in balance. This, is what has happened that has produced the "greasy grace" phenomenon that some of the body discovered and stayed there, in excess. Been there, done that.

Just a hiccup. Ignore it and carry on, there's more to discover. Peace

Especially if they can use the bible as justification for their behavior..

Yes - absolutely - without a doubt.

The church has clinged to the stone tablets (10 COMMANDMENTS EVERYWHERE) and told people to get right or get left, and worse...

"Sin no more, and we won't condemn you."

That's the opposite of what Jesus told us.
