A Post-Evangelical America
Just as "race" has a whole new meaning in America this week, so, too, does "faith." For at least four decades, white evangelicals have been the religion-and-politics story in this country. Their power, their rhetoric, their numbers, their theology—all have been so dominant that many of us in the media had forgotten that religious faith could be expressed any other way. Last summer, a colleague and I wrote a profile of president-elect Barack Obama that described his Christian faith—a journey that started with a deeply spiritual but not religous upbringing, progressed through a considerable amount of reading, searching and ambivalence, and culminated in an emotional homecoming in a socially active, black church in Chicago.

A great many readers of that story expressed the view that because Obama is pro-choice, because he did not go to church with regularity—and because his former pastor, the Rev. ...

The McCain supporters probably could have still won in spite of Dubya, but McCain made the mistake of bringing Palin in to the ticket. This was playing not to lose. This was a convoluted tactic to get H. Clinton voters. It failed to work. People were afraid and they voted with their wallets and stomachs rather than their moral compasses. I can see their point. Many people, including Christians, are afraid, and voted for change without fully understanding the kind of change Obama will bring.
McCain lost because he played the moderate to draw votes of the feeble undecided, instead of articulating principles to draw the base. Palin was the only bright spot in the entire campaign, and saved McCain from losing more votes than he did.

Christians who voted their fear apparently have not heard that they have not been given a spirit of fear. Back to Sunday school with them. Those who voted their wallet are short-sighted. They are to be pitied for their lack of economic and historical understanding, and for thinking "me first."

A week has gone by and it seems that I'm still crying in my beer...um milk, this is a Christian site after all. Bush more or less pushed many of the usual Republican voters away. I don't think Bush is as bad as everyone says, but he was not one of our better presidents, and he is perceived by many as being among the worst. Perception is reality. So, a lot of people felt they could not vote Republican and expect anything but the same old, same old that the country has endured for the last eight years. Republican is not an interchangeable term with Conservative BTW. I think the Bush administration moved very close to being facist in the same way that I feel the incoming admin will move toward Communisim. Neither option is good for a free nation.

The McCain supporters probably could have still won in spite of Dubya, but McCain made the mistake of bringing Palin in to the ticket. This was playing not to lose.

This is just newsweek liberal dribble. I cannot speak for evangelicals...nor Christians, but most were ticked at McCain for his bad attitiude toward Christians, (how come he never spoke about his faith in Christ except at Saddleback). In the end, McCain , the lesser of 2 weevels, did not seem to be aware of how horrible his staff was in advertising, handling, etc. He should have fired the lot early on.

"....they remind us that there are tens of millions of voters in this country who believe in God, read their Scripture, pray, regularly attend a house of worship—and do not consider themselves born-again Christians"

"Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble." James 2:19.

This discussion took place in my house I am bought by the Blood of Jesus Christ not political expediency. I have said for many years that Black churchs teach a different Gospel today from the days when I grew up in the Church. It is more of a social movement that equates combating social injustice with Christianity. Darrell Bock the author of the article is writing from a seminary albeit a liberal one but non the less a supposedly training ground for future pastors. So now we train pastors on social responsibility before preaching the Bible. Whe TD Jakes and all the other fradulent christians are looked up to for guidance and prayer we have a major shift in who we really think God is. Christianity is not some journey you find over years of vetting and come to a conclusion after eating at the trough of pantheism and polythesim this is what I want. God says he will not be mocked. Saying all roads lead to the same end is utterly stupid. Why do we bash Christians when we believe our Bible but give Islam perferred treatment when they say there is only one true god and that's allah. And they will kill you if you do not submit. We have reached the tipping point and just like Britian we are now a nation without God and should expect to suffer the consquences.

It is post-evangelical, that's for sure. But here's the problem: when the Gospel and the Scriptures are left behind, something else comes in to fill the void...new ideas, new religions(yes, even atheism is a religion), political turmoil, lower morals, unrest, discontentment. We see it happening. The US is leaving the Scriptures behind and look at what has been happening...an economy spinning out of control, huge national debt, among other things. Not only is the US post-evangelical. It is post-constitutional, leaving behind the foundations on which is was built.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but here it is in black and white. We, (those of us who "insist[s] on a personal relationship with Jesus Christ"), are now the enemy of the progressive American people and "all other religious paths in America, various as they are, and infinite." Incredible that it starts to happen so fast!!
