My Newswithviews Column, July 26 (‘Religion for Hipsters’)

There are churches and “Bible scholars” out there who’ll say and do anything to win the approval of a Godless world.

It wouldn’t be so bad, if they had only their own souls to worry about; but how many people are they leading into error?

Well, it’ll make an interesting defense on Judgment Day. “But Lord! I was only doing what was trending!”


Not-so-Fond Memory: The Flatline Church

Some fifteen years ago, maybe more, before the seminaries really got rolling with womanist theology and Social Justice as a substitute for God, I interviewed a high official of the United Methodist Church. And this is what he said.

“The first thing I learned in seminary is that the Bible is not the word of God.” He seemed proud of it: too clever, he, to believe that the Bible is anything but a lot of old, cobwebby, made-up stories about things that never happened and people who never lived.

“Truth,” he said, “is determined by realpolitik.” (Maybe he thought he was Bismarck, or Henry Kissinger.) Whoever can round up the most votes, whoever can spend the most money, whoever can most successfully intimidate the opposition, gets to say what truth is.

This leaves us with no truth at all.

That was years ago. The flatline liberal churches were already carrying a heavy chain of hypocrisy; and, like Scrooge in A Christmas Carol, they have “labored on it ever since. It is a ponderous chain.”

But we do have the Bible, it is God’s word, and we have one another.

Which means we don’t need the flatline churches. And more and more Christians are coming to realize this.


Lib Church Won’t Pray for Trump by Name (They Think He’s Gonna Kill ‘Em)

Never let it be said our friends on the Left aren’t drama queens. In fact, it’s at the core of their being–oh, they take themselves so seriously! And that goes for liberal mainline/flatline churches, too.

All Saints Church in Pasadena (where else?) has announced that its drama-loving clergy won’t pray for President-elect Donald Trump by name anymore, because just his very name is “literally a trauma trigger” ( http://downtrend.com/71superb/church-bans-trumps-name-because-its-a-trauma-trigger ). In fact, they think Donald Trump wants to kill them: “he represents an active danger to health and safety.”

They’ll still pray for a generic “president,” but not that mean old homophobic Donald Trump. Actually, Trump has not devoted any attention to opposing the march of sodomy–but then he’s also a racist and a biggit, don’t you know.  Everyone the libs don’t like is a racist and a biggit.

Do these liberal churches worship God or man? When they need to pray, do they just look at a mirror?

Stay tuned for Exhibit B, coming right up.


‘You’re Still a Racist’

There are churches that aren’t worthy of the name; and I think the most unworthy of them all is The United Church of Christ (UCC).

Recently on its Facebook page, the UCC–which some ignorant noozie described as “a major mainline Protestant denomination,” lol–counseled its couple dozen members to “Listen when people call you on your microaggressions” and to “Recognize that you’re still a racist, no matter what” ( http://dailycaller.com/2016/06/07/united-church-of-christ-all-whites-are-racist-no-matter-what/ ). That only applies if you’re white, of course. All white people are racists.

This major flat-line denomination is also gung-ho for homosexual pseudo-marriage and “gay” pastors, and all the rest of that stuff that drives sane people out of these perpetually shrinking sects. So a spot of race-hustling is hardly out of place.

Someday, if there is anyone around to write the history of this lamentable age, we may learn just how much damage these shabby excuses for churches have done to America.

And if that’s a microaggression, then let me make it a little less micro and a little more macro:

You people are false prophets and evil shepherds, who daily take God’s name in vain, your church is a false church, and unless you repent and change your ways, you’re in for a most uncomfortable Eternity.
