I’ve seen numerous complaints by Christians from just about every main faith group that certain portions of their faith appear to be turning politically correct rather than spiritually so. An excellent quote from William H. Willimon, United Methodist pastor and writer:
“There was a time when Christians wanted to be obedient and faithful. Lately we are content to be sensitive. Once we aspired to justice and righteousness. Our present concern is that we be kind. If kindness alone were enough there would have been no cross. Jesus would have formed a sensitivity group and urged us to share our feelings, or a support group where we could affirm each other. Knowing full well the limits of humanity, the seriousness of our sin, and the depths of evil, he formed the church and charted a different way.”
Have any of you observed this happening in your own churches and if so, how has it been expressed? In my own, I’d say the NCCB has finally showed much of its true self (hanging head as I admit it).
