Unintended(?) Consequences

I often marvel at the speed at which some in the Evangelical community have abandoned Biblical teaching on marriage, family, and sexuality. Some are stumbling all over themselves to appear to be on the “right side of history,” wherever that side might be, fluid as it is, and are the early adapters of all things not-chaste. In their haste to appear non-judgmental (which, of course, simply shifts the object of their judgment from one set of principles to another), the consequences of bad theology are ignored. This, coupled with bad public policy, places the ever-current Evangelical in stranger and more remote places; strange enough and remote enough that it is fair to ask if they have left altogether.

Stella Morabito of The Federalist lists six reasons that point to a whopper of an unintended consequence. My point in posting this is to ask those who consider themselves Evangelical Christians, is this what you want?

What If We've Been Doing It All Wrong?

What if our entire approach to youth in the church has been in error for over 200 years? That is, most churches, large and small, have neglected to form faith in the young, by assuming it could be done better by others.

Before all the “Fall Kickoffs” get kicked, perhaps it’s time to rethink our approach to bringing up young Christians.
