Former atheist on Christian cowardice

Mike Adams on what passes for Christian teaching today:

It has taken several tries but I am happy that I have finally found a pastor and a church that is solidly pro-life and pro-family and not afraid to say it. I’m just sad that in the last sixteen years, I have learned that at least three quarters of the pastors who actually know what is right still lack the intestinal fortitude to take a stand for what they believe.

Many Christians are fed up with the capitulation of the church and respond in a way that is different from my chosen response. Rather than continuing to try and find a courageous pastor, they simply stop going to church. So this raises an interesting question: If Christians actually stop going to church because they are tired of pastors refusing to take a stand is it possible that some people never seriously consider Christianity in the first place for the same reasons? More.

Reality check: The vast majority of young people who go through the constitutionally protected Ontario Catholic school systems will never learn what the Church thinks about abortion or gay sex, or not seriously anyway. Everything will be watered down to suit the members of the Catholic teachers’ unions.

But it may be a mercy for most of those kids that no one is asking them to take any of it seriously. Christianity is likely to simply wither in the western world. Remaining Christians will be subject to considerable persecution, not least for our stand against euthanasia of expensive people.

Consider the pitiable contortions of Pope Francis on the subject of gay sex – which is barred by the New Testament. The New Testament is the church’s constitution. We have no other final authority. He knows that but he can’t just end the discussion by saying so. Why not?
