Why churches should brace for a mass exodus of the faithful?

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral, and political consequences.

But what if the next institutions to be leveled by the Christian ideal of equality are the churches themselves?

I'm not talking about all of the churches. I mean those that have resisted reforming themselves in light of women's equality ‚ÄĒ and specifically those that resist ...

Thank God that some churches have resisted "deforming" themselves for the sake of equality with perversion.

"The ideal of equality has transformed the family, the workplace, the military, the political world, and countless other areas of life ‚ÄĒ and the church thinks it can hold back the tide with this?"

The new idol is equality.

Equality defined as, "no authority such as God and His Bible."

Judges 21:25 In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.

I think the author is trying to appeal to those Church Leaders more interested in collection plates than Worship.

what a twisting of reality by a millennial neckbeard type ... he is complaining that hipsters are leaving churches in droves?
is he kidding? the hipsters are taking over the churches ... the liberals are in charge and they get to write the most audacious things ... the true Christians are leaving the churches, they rest are redistributing themselves back into apostate churches ...
if they were of us ... they would never had split into denominations ...
if they were of us ... they would have washed mother church in the Word, not split off like so many schizotypal personalities ... each one "holier than thou" ...

I usually think of the "faithful" as the one who stays and not the one who leaves: The faithful wife who stays with the unfaithful husband for the sake of the children; the faithful employee who remains with the company through tough economic times; the faithful player who does not quit the team during a long losing streak; and so on.

On the contrary, in the church it is the faithful that remain and the apostates that leave. Someone said that "if they were indeed of us then they would have remained with us".

The writer refuses to acknowledge that it is the new tolerant and liberal churches today that has opened the door for many of today's heresies. I am by no means defending the Catholic nor LDS churches concerning their doctrines but there are many protestant churches that have determined to keep proper order in their services concerning gender roles and (yes) have paid the price of the defection of some members; but I wouldn't call those who left "the faithful".

Finally, the writer could easily have written this article anew with the same title by changing a few words such as "women's equality" to "homosexual equality".
