Theology Served Raw
Some time ago I entered the seminary of a major American denomination. After a few years of suffering intellectual persecution, I left. I met with the Dean of Studies who was also the Chairman of Ministries for the local organization who told me that unless I abandoned the idea that one must be saved in the name of Jesus Christ I would not be allowed into the ministry. "Understand that this is just a job," he told me.I packed my bags and left. Unfortunately I've been packing and leaving churches ever since. Many are not involved in the community at all and others are simply so ingrown they are useless for anything except a closed social club.Christendom is dying and nobody seems to want to admit why.
