The End of Liberal Theology – Emptiness

Richard Niebuhr once said:

A God without wrath took a Man without sin into a kingdom without righteousness through the ministrations of a Christ without a cross.

In my opinion this describes the essence of all liberal theology.  The message is made so vague that it really does become something like this, or at least this is what people begin to believe.  Perhaps this is what they wanted all along.  A god who doesn’t judge them for things they do, but approves of them “just the way they are.”  This is dangerous and wicked.  A church that embraces such folly will eventually become something other than a Christian church, for this thinking is certainly not Christian, and certainly does not have a place among the Bride of Christ, whom He died for.

One thought on “The End of Liberal Theology – Emptiness

  1. If God doesn’t judge me and approves of me just the way I am, then why do I need to repent of sin? There’s nothing wrong with me. This is the therapeutic God who is sold and commercialized these days. The power of mass media is the new theologian. This is why we need to be rooted and grounded in God’s word and sound doctrine. “The days are coming when they will not endure sound doctrine..” Paul warns Timothy. “My people perish for lack of knowledge” says Hosea. Forewarned is forearmed. “Test the spirits,” ” judge with righteous judgment”- these are clarion calls to God’s people everywhere.
