Sproul throws down on the cult of pluralism

"If all religions are equally good, then one stands out as terribly bad, and that is Christianity, because Christianity has no time for pluralism. It sees one way only. Now that is downright un-American. Sometimes you have to make a decision where your allegiance is going to be—with the secular culture or with the One whom God sent into the world as your Redeemer" (R. C. Sproul, Acts [Crossway: 2010], 318)

Well stated!

Dan - FYI - I subscribe to Ligonier's Tabletalk magazine.

Just rec'd next month's issue - the cover subject is a topic you've been writing about lately - Christ in the OT & NT.

Always good to see great minds thinking alike!

And this is how we should evangelize. We have to make sure that people know there is a distinction between Christianity and every other religion in the world. We have to preach Jesus Christ as crucified for our salvation. Otherwise, we may well unwittingly show support for somebody's universalist beliefs.

And the tragic irony, Robert, is that if we tone down the Gospel to make it more acceptable to the unbeliever on his terms, we take the cure out of the cure.

Hunh.

Someone should write a book on that.

Hmmmm....

That might be...what are the words am I thinking of...world-tilting!

Yes, including societal christianity!

I've come to realize that when I meet someone and they say "I'm a Christian", it's irresponsible of me to stop there and take that at face value.

"Now that is downright un-American."

Not often I'd stand up and applaud for something so labeled, but AMEN.
