American Christianity is rooted in Pietism. Pietism can be directly linked to America's moral decay. In fact, the collapse of the Christian West is the result of this pietistic form of Christianity. Pietism says that Christianity only impacts and affects our personal life. Pietism believes that Christianity was not intended to impact nations, nor do they believe the moral Law of God has any place in the governance of society. This sermon is not by any means a comprehensive look at the impact of Pietism upon society, but rather designed to just wet your appetite for further thought and study. MercySeat.net 49 min.
