A Surising Liberal Source

A Surprising Liberal Source

 

Ironically, political liberalism found its original American roots in the Christian theological liberalism that rose up in the late 19th Century under the umbrella of Modernism. Modernism is a departure from historic Christian beliefs in order to submit to the will of rationalism as proposed by the Enlightenment. According to The Church in History, “. .the Modernists place the mind of man above the Bible, and they place reason above faith.” Because they denied the supernatural world, these materialists forsook the belief in the virgin birth or deity of Christ, miracles, and special revelation or the infallibility of Scriptures.

ICharles Darwin)n an attempt to “relate to society” modernists sought to adapt Christianity to evolution. It was Charles Darwin who led these liberals to deny the truth of Scripture. Yet according to Peter Jones in Spirit Wars, ultimately the Darwinian evolutionary base of secular humanism that the entire Modernist movement was founded on collapsed. Even thought it is still being propagated in the schools, evolution among serious scientists has been discredited for the sham that it always was.

In the mean time, without a belief in the authority of Scripture, the modernists were left with nothing to talk about. As a result secular humanism eventually destroyed the liberal church that, while once experiencing growth during the ‘50s and ‘60s, found its congregations fleeing from its midst. And so the modernists lost interest in their liberal interpretations of the Bible. It was in the midst of this weakened church that the counterculture movement rose up to challenge the church that had departed from its first love.

Jesus Seminar the Descent of the ModernistsThe liberal church needed some where to go from there. Rather than returning to God they sunk to new lows as they turned to the hippies to “get religion.” But this was not a return to the biblical doctrine that they departed from. “Once associated with a religious rationalism and social gospel activism,” Jones writes, “the Religious Left has discovered spirituality, not the spirituality of the Bible but that of paganism.” In order to push their way back to the forefront these liberals discovered the wonders of New Age spirituality to save the planet and to meet the needs of a new post ‘60s culture thirsting after Hinduism. In this vein left-wing scholar Steven Davies wrote, “Those seeking the place where Jesus is ought not to seek Jesus Himself, but will find what they seek in themselves.” “Classical liberalism,” wrote Jones, “denied the truth claims of Christian orthodoxy. Today’s liberalism simply relativizes Christianity as one religious option among many so that it can participate in the coming unification of the planet and of religion, advancing mankind along its evolutionary path.”

Jesus SeminarIn order to propagate ‘60s Eastern Mysticism in the church, liberal religious groups such as the Jesus Seminar promote Gnosticism, which the church fathers of the first centuries fought against. While claiming that Gnosticism was an alternate, authentic expression of Christianity, they have dug up ancient Gnostic texts from that era to justify the creation of a new Gnostic bible.

The fact that the body of Christ was purged of Gnosticism in Early Church times is utilized as proof that Gnosticism is right. Therefore Robert Miller wrote: “Of course history is written by the victors, in this case, by the orthodox fathers of the church. From an objective historical perspective, however, ‘heresy’ is labeled for the rival religious currents that lost; they (the Gnostics) eventually ceased to be politically, socially, or intellectually sustainable alternatives to mainstream Christianity.” Today, as in the early church, we see ourselves in the middle of, not only a struggle for the soul of America, but the future of orthodox Christianity itself.Jesus Seminar

As America departed from the truth of the Bible these new liberals ran from the American culture that orthodox Christianity had created. As a result they forwarded liberal political policies that flew in the face of everything that America stood for.

Therefore, in true pagan fashion, the liberal church of today has turned to envision a Brave New World where distinctions between the sexes, between right and wrong, between true and false are blurred. A tolerance for all with the exception of evangelicals has been instituted. Satan does not exist. Fundamentalist outsiders who deserve to be scorned have simply drummed him up. Hence we have the culture wars today that find the political left and right on opposite sides of the fence.

"I might not be a religious man myself but I know good music when I hear it, and this is very good! . . . I don’t think that I have ever given such high ratings to so many songs before. But the fact is that they are well deserved because the music is amazing. Simply wonderful religious ballads and they really get to your heart. . .everytime."
