The End of Christianity as We Know It (April 1, 2015)

The hysterical reaction to Indiana’s law protecting religious liberty has made it clear that Christianity as we know it – where Christians can live consistently with the historic doctrines of the church and still get along with everybody – is coming to an end. What will take its place is a costly Christianity, the kind of which Dietrich Bonheoffer wrote before he was hanged for his opposition to Hitler’s totalitarian Nazi regime.

But that kind of Christianity is really true to its historical roots. Christianity will always be rooted in the Cross, and only those willing to embrace that Cross really embrace Christianity.

Soon those who fill the pews and pulpits of America’s churches will have to think about whether they will really embrace the costliness of the Cross. And Easter is just the right time of year to think about that.
