Hanging in the Balance

The Believing Church "against" a  growing tide of heresy with weak Christians and the victimized lost hanging in the balance.

There is a growing tide of heresy, not to mention a culture that is turning. Hanging in the balance, and in danger, are weak Christians who, for various reasons, may not safely be able to critically reflect on all the information coming to them from the culture, from re-energized cultural Christians (as per Niebuhr), and from “new” heretics and their heresies midwifed, incubated, and suckled by those who reject the church as it has come to them and Christian scholars and leaders desperate to be seen as intellectual by their secular colleagues and peers.

Also hanging in the balance are those in the culture who, as George Bailey put it so well in It’s A Wonderful Life, “do most of the working and paying and living and dying” in our culture and who are being victimized by an entrenched post modern, relativistic philosophy that is now coming home to roost in the form of foolish philosophies and approaches to daily living that make no sense but that can be seen every day in our culture, and which comes to them prepackaged by the liberal and at times the conservative media and always from our institutions of higher learning, in the form of defeater beliefs which ultimately become the fodder for implausibility structures that so insulate the average person that he or she is not given a fair chance at hearing the gospel which is the only hope there is!
