Thought for the Day: "Air-Conditioning Hell"

Today's reading is an article by Albert Mohler called, "Air-Conditioning Hell- How Liberalism Happens." In it he addresses the process by which some Christians deal with doctrines that are at odds with the popular culture in an effort to make Christianity more "relevant," therefore resulting in the liberalization of the church.

The doctrine of Hell is the model for Mohler's theory, but can easily be applied to other doctrines as well. The steps he outlines are:
1. The doctrine stops being mentioned.
2. The doctrine is revised and reduced.
3. The doctrine is ridiculed.
4. The doctrine is reformulated in order to remove its intellectual and moral offensiveness.

  1. Mohler always does his homework. Lots to ponder here!
