I've known for thirty years that Krisschannity would destroy the Christian faith. The entire mass market, love-gospel, prosperity-feelgood-telemarketer hybridization of Christian teachings has effectively doomed it because it substitutes the teachings of men for the scripture of God. The second Christianity is converted into something that will appeal to everybody, it instantly becomes suitable for nobody.
Christians were never supposed to throw their pearls before swine or indulge in the Arminian heresies of new-age touchy-feely mass market you're-okay/I'm-okay crapola.
Here's the truth. I'm going to heaven because my repentance is genuine. The reason my repentance is genuine is because I'm terrified of a being I cannot see, hear or detect with any of my six senses ... a being I did not believe even existed for nearly two decades of my life. You're going to hell if your story is anything but. Until you realize you are a drowning man, you will never swim with all your heart towards the life preserver called Jesus Christ when it floats by. There is no other way into heaven and your works are nothing but filthy rags. Men are DAMNED. Most of them are DAMNED FROM BIRTH. HOPELESSLY DAMNED. THEY WERE MADE PURELY AS EXTRAS TO POPULATE HELL WITH BACKGROUND SCREAMS. If it doesn't scare you to hear that, you don't have grace.
Christianity is outside this world. It's faithful are separate from the rest of mankind and should remain apart. The instant you have clowns like Ted Haggard and Jim Bakker defiling the word of God by acting as teachers, you're going to produce nothing but fools for a flock.
I believe this article is a very accurate portrayal of post-Krisschan Amerikwa. You will find the ugliest inquisitors of all in the new regime will be the phoneys dropping out of their horrible fake churches and raised on false prophets. Nobody will persecute the Christian with more gusto than the Krisschans themselves. Drippy lukewarm self-help new age psychotics, each and every one of them.
Do not be shocked at the rise of a new Soviet-style psychiatry which will label all religion as a mental disorder which they will believe is best treated with lobotomies and electroshock therapy. You can hear echoes of this stuff in the chief baboons leading the new dumbed down atheist movement behind Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens. If either of these guys thought they had the muscle and the consensus to pull it off, they'd set up an inquisition tomorrow.
"Will it shake lose the prosperity Gospel from its parasitical place on the evangelical body of Christ? Evidence from similar periods is not encouraging. American Christians seldom seem to be able to separate their theology from an overall idea of personal affluence and success."
