A Conversation With The New Christianity

“Educated” 20 something,

You see, we are not afraid of words like socialism, homosexuals or Hollywood. We are cool with tattoos, doing a bit of yoga, drinking a bit of wine and hanging out with muslims and/or communists and/or people who would be “left behind.”

Conservative Pastor,

But you see that’s only because you’re unlearned. If you read Solzhenitsyn’s “Gulag Archipelago,” or “The Black Book of Communism,” or the record of what happened when Bela Kuhn took over Hungary you wouldn’t write drivel like, “we’re not afraid of socialism.”

Consistent with that if you had read the record of the San Francisco Bath-houses, or the doings in Roman Catholic Seminaries you’d be afraid of the sodomites. But you’re blissfully ignorant and so you think yourself enlightened by not being afraid of words like communism, sodomy, and Hollywood.

And as to Hollywood… once again you remain unlearned. You don’t know about Fatty Arbuckle who long predated Harvey Weinstein and who had the same kind of sexual appetite. You don’t know about the mass amount of pedophilia in Hollywood as testified to by child victim Corey Feldman. You don’t know about Hedy Lamar and the first onscreen orgasm. And so being unlearned you blather boldly about not being afraid of such words. It is easy to not be frightened about things you know precious little about.

‘Educated’ 20 something,

More than that, we believe in the message of the cross more than we believe in having a cross in every corner. We believe in God’s love for all humanity more than we believe in only Israel and America as God’s elect. We believe kindness and compassion are more powerful than fear and judgment. And we won’t vote conservative just because they say they are anti-abortion.

Conservative Pastor,

But Scripture explicitly teaches that God most certainly does NOT love all humanity. Please forgive us for not teaching you this when you were a child. God hates workers of iniquity. God hated Esau before He was even born. God is angry with the wicked every day. These are all testified to in Scripture.

I must congratulate you though in learning from us that God hates modern Israel much as he hates modern America. Why would God love a nation that murders over 1 million in utero babies annually?

I too believe in kindness and compassion but I apparently failed to teach you that when I show unbiblical kindness and compassion to the Christ hater, I have at the same time assayed unbiblical judgment on those I’m supposed to love. If I love the sodomite, I hate those whom the sodomite may eventually prey upon. And fear? You must be kidding? I don’t fear any of these Christ haters. I do feel sorry for them. I do want to protect the bride of Christ from them, but I have absolutely zero fear of them.

And in terms of your voting habits you mentioned, if I had my way you would not even be allowed to vote at all since it is not Biblical to give women the franchise since Scripture clearly teaches that women should not rule over men. Female voting is a way where women rule over men.

“Educated 20 something,”

To be properly pro-life for us means EVERY life.

The immigrant.

The refugee.

The man on death row.

Both the mother and the little one.

So we will preach more pro-humanity than anti-abortion. We will sing more pro-love than anti-sin. We will deny patriarchy, deny racism in all its forms, and deny any kind of hate to those who our different to us.

This is NOT rebellion against you.

Conservative Pastor,

Belly Laugh … NOT rebellion against us? Well, I suppose that you are not primarily in rebellion against us. You are primarily in rebellion and God and His Word.

Once again, this demonstrates how unlearned you are. You are in full rebellion mode and yet you insist that it is not rebellion. If you were learned you would know what words to use as labels because you are definitely rebelling against what you were taught. All because you don’t want to use the word rebellion doesn’t mean you are not involved in a high rebellion against what you were taught.

You can not be pro-life and be pro-illegal immigrant or refugee because for every illegal and refugee you allow in you threaten the life of an American. Or have you not seen the crime statistic associated with illegals and refugees?

The man on death row? It is an act of deep love to execute that man. Love to God who requires execution. Love to the family of the person he executed. Love to the social order since his execution stands as a warning post to others who might contemplate taking life. Finally, it is love to the man on death row who is being shown dignity by seeing that there are consequences to his actions.

And deny patriarchy? With that line, you just told me that you are not Christian. It is not possible to be anti-patriarchal and be Christian if only because God is “Our Father, who art in heaven.” Not patriarchal? Tell me, how much of God’s word do you have to cut up and burn in order to deny patriarchy?

This letter communicates how superior you think you are in your understanding of life but all I see in this letter is a deep commitment to hating the God of the Bible and His ethic.
