Boo friggin hoo, part II
Bring out the tiny violin again, we have another whining wingnut, concerned that secular society and the ever-menacing Homosexual AgendaTM are steamrolling the holy roller out of today’s youth.
The president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, is pressing alarm over the large number of young Christians who accept what the Bible clearly condemns. Dr. Albert Mohler, Jr., says one of the problems today is that too many Christians seem to think that other religions are equally valid paths to God — and that is especially true of young Christians, he says, noting that many see nothing wrong with homosexuality or same-sex “marriage.”
Compromise on the exclusivity of the Gospel is just a huge issue,” says Mohler, “and the younger you go, the more troublesome that really becomes.” Mohler says the views of many young Christians are skewed by modern culture. “The evangelical teenager today — the young adult raised in the dominant educational establishment — has an understanding of truth,” he says, “[but] it’s just not compatible with scripture, unless he or she has had that concept of truth shaped by the pulpit.”
And if they are not getting it from the pulpit, he continues, they are going to have an “ambient cultural understanding” of truth — “and that is not consistent with the One who said, ‘I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No man comes to the Father but by me.'” Mohler says Christianity needs preachers to correct widespread ignorance — or defiance — of biblical teaching.
These feeble folks don’t seem to understand that they are only exposing the fact that their faith is so weak that they need to find measures to “correct” someone who falls out of line.
