Sunday...Commentary From Mohler



Dr. Al Mohler writes about the comparison between Europe and the US regarding the decline of Christianity. Mohler quotes the following from another article, saying:


Christianity--we should admit it--is un-modern. Or, rather, it is modern in
the sense that it encompasses all eras: past, present, and future. What we might
call the "modern spirit" is in fact detached from the Christian spirit.


Since Canada is more 'modern' than the US (that is Enlightenment 'modern'), it is no surprise that Canadian Christianity is more marginalized.

But our 'modern' culture still has a hole at its core. The point is profoundly, yet ironically expressed in the Smashing Pumpkins chorus from Bullet with Butterfly Wings:

Despite all my rage
I’m still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say
what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage
I’m still just a
rat in a cage
And I still believe that I cannot be saved
(HT: LyricsFreak)


Maybe the problem is that American and Canadian Christianity has become 'modern' too. As a result, it offers no distinctness and no hope for the lostness and rage expressed in these lyrics.

The 'Pumpkins and preaching on a Sunday AM? Hmm, interesting.....
