-End of The Culture Wars and We Lost?

by Dr. D ~ April 28th, 2009

There have been all sorts of articles lately proclaiming the end of cultural Christianity and that Evangelical Christians have lost the so-called ‘culture wars’. Some major Christian leaders have indicated that somehow we turned a corner that is discouraging. Here’s Dr. James Dobson in an interview with Hannity talking about some of these issues:

Also, here is a recent quote of Dr. Albert Mohler who does believe that the environment has changed and American cultural Christianity is over and the Church is facing some new realities:

Al Mohler

(Dr. Mohler via Wikipedia)

"We are going to discover that cultural Christianity is what eventually disappears in a secularized age.

Cultural Christianity has been so much a part of the environment of our ministry and of the expectation of our churches that it’s going to be a very different situation for the pastor of the First Baptist Church to worry about being arrested rather than to worry about whether he’s going to get the first seat in the restaurant.

… When you start looking at a lot of the logic of what is becoming endemic in the culture toward the future, we’re going to be in a very different situation than we’ve ever faced before.

And we’re going to discover that we are not as many as we thought we were.

… We’ve got to prepare students to be ready for that and to be able to lead churches to be able to understand what it means to be the church when we no longer have the cultural supports that we had counted on, wrongly, I think, all these years."

—Southern Baptist Theological Seminary President Albert Mohler Jr. [Baptist Press, 4/23/09]

Response: It could well be that a corner has been turned that will see America on a path that is increasingly leading away from Biblical Christianity—this seems to be the case right now. It is such a time as this that the church is called to stand up and clearly present the Gospel. Perhaps a new revival will come our way or maybe the church will begin to actually suffer increasing persecution in this land. Either way Christians are called to stand up for what they believe even in a changing cultural environment.             *Top
