Intriguing article over at the Huffington Post by Richard Stearns (President of World Vision) on Goodbye Christian America.
Stearns notes the end of America’s nominal Christianity and believes that it might not be a bad thing. Writing about one particular church, he says:
There was a time when Pastor Curry might have worried about things like posting the Ten Commandments in courtrooms, but today he’s too busy changing the city of Tacoma and world. This is the work Christians are called to do. Christians can stop worrying about the symbols of the decline of Christian America and get back to the mission Jesus gave us to show the world a different way to live — a way that demonstrates the great character of God: his love, his justice, his compassion, his forgiveness and his reconciliation.
Do you agree? Do you think the Bill O’Reilly brand of Christianity consisting of theism + cultural conservativism (but low on scripture and light on Jesus) is on the way out?
