While scrolling through Facebook, I came across Charles Mathewes’ Washington Post article, “White Christianity is in big trouble. And it’s its own biggest threat.”  At first reading, I was infuriated at what I felt were unfair criticisms, but after I thought about it, I realized what an opportunity this article presented.  It collects together no less than thirteen criticisms against Christianity.  In this episode Dan Fitzsimmons, Rose Rider, and I (Sean Finnegan) respond to the first seven, including:

  1. Our society’s war on Christmas bothers Christians
  2. A Christian baker refused to sell a cake for a gay wedding
  3. 80% of white evangelicals in Alabama voted for a pedophile
  4. We’re ignorant of history
  5. We’re ignorant of the current state of the world
  6. We’re ignorant about scientific knowledge
  7. We’re surprisingly ignorant about our own religion

  • Not sure I find that much wrong with the author’s comments. One of the keys to Roy Moore’s issue and one I find rather common in many evangelical pushes is his lack of admission, confession, and remorse when confronted with overwhelming evidence. Another disturbing thing was the willingness for many evangelicals to put their politics (of this world) above Jesus’ teachings. Enjoyed the discussion. God’s peace.
