“No… you’re not crazy.” The boys deliver this message pretty regularly to those Christians who’ve begun to notice the contradictions within Evangelicalism. Faithfulness has replaced faith. Moralism has replaced the Gospel. Improvement has supplanted redemption. How did things ever become so convoluted?
If evangelicalism needs the Republican Party to remain successful, then it has been nothing more than a religious special interest group. If someone believes losing a cultural war, or having a president appoint a liberal justice to the Supreme Court, or a shake up in the GOP somehow signals the end of Christianity in the US, then they have lost their way.
