‘Deplatforming the Word of God’

Idol Makers | Paul Louis Metzger

This Chalcedon blog piece by Andrea Schwartz teaches a hard lesson. As much as we deplore current secular censorship of Christianity, we have to recognize that our own stewardship of God’s Word has left a lot to be desired.

How so? By giving up the tithe and resigning our charity to the tender mercies of the pagan state; by refusing to preach God’s word in church and substituting “seeker-sensitive” twaddle for it; by refusing to teach our own children and sending them off to pagan public schools where they can learn to be pagans themselves.

Other than those few little things, we’ve done a fine job.

O Lord our God! Exert your strength on us and bring us to our senses! Deliver us from our folly, from our sin. Not for our sake, for we are sinners: but for your own great name’s sake, so that the whole world may know that you are the Lord, strong to save. Lead us through the door of national repentance; open our eyes that we might see, open our hearts that we might understand. In Jesus’ name and in the power of His name–Amen.

  1. I belong to the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, the most Pro-life Protestant denomination. We have Lutheran schools and Lutheran hospitals. We preach the Bible as the Word of God. No worldly entertainment in our Divine Services. And we have such beautiful hymns to sing praises to God. Now, shouldn’t every Christian be able to say that about their church? Reformation begins with each of us as an individual.
