The Evangelicals Are Catching Up

The late Harold O. J. Brown noted that theology is no longer a hot topic with theological [!] liberals. It’s social and political issues that animate them. A theologically apostate agenda is passé. Today they’re really about social and political apostasy: homosexuality, abortion, socialism, radical feminism and environmentalism, college co-ed egg harvesting, etc.

Today, by contrast, it’s the evangelicals who are in love with theological liberalism: denying penal substitution, Biblical inerrancy, and the historicity of Adam and Eve.

But not to worry: the evangelicals will soon catch up.
