We have a lot of problems in our nation at present, and I hear a lot of Christians place the blame for this on the church for its failure to be salt and light to the culture. Now, I don’t dispute that the church has a lot of problems, but if you are going to blame it for our current troubles you need to go back a century. Liberalism swallowed up virtually every mainline Christian denomination in the 1920s. The cardinal doctrines of the faith such as the deity of Christ and the virgin birth were cast aside. It took a few generations for this apostasy to wreck the spiritual foundation of the culture, but eventually the destruction was complete. We now live in a post-Christian culture, and the present Evangelical church, for all of its problems, isn’t primarily to blame. That ship sailed a long time ago.
