Years ago, I read a book about World War 2. In the book, it talked about some of the events that led to that war. There were a couple of paragraphs that talked about how Germany and the Lutheran church had become liberalized before 1900. Its seminaries, churches, and religious theology had all become corrupted by liberalism. Evangelicals in the Lutheran churches were mocked at and persecuted. How did those Evangelicals choose to deal with the situation? By immigrating, amass to the United States. They wanted to flee from persecution and live in a country that would respect their religious convictions.
The book went on to describe how because of that exodus an even greater moral gap occurred in German society. There was no longer anyone to challenge the prevailing liberalism and to promote moral absolutes. The liberal Protestantism that was left in Germany was then combined with conservative Catholic nationalism creating Nazism.
Today Protestants are abandoning their churches because of liberalism. I have to ask my fellow Protestants who have abandoned their faith. WHY? If those churches have rejected true doctrine and the salvation message, are you not under a moral obligation to God to stay in those churches? You are called to be a beacon of light to the lost. If, you cannot toughen it out in a liberal church, than how in the world can you be the salt of the earth in this Godless, heathen society? How many times do I have to repeat myself on this forum and say to you that the overwhelming numbers of Protestants in those churches are on the broad road to hell and they need you. The fact that they are even attending those churches shows that they are still looking for some type of truth. Did the Apostle Paul abandon the church when there was disagreement? No.
People leave the Protestant church for many reasons. I remember years ago that there was a group of women who were feminists in the Methodist church and that they left the church to become Catholic because they liked the fact that Catholics’ place Mary on such a high level. They wanted a female component to God. What a great liberal reason to leave our churches.
