As I am preparing my lectures for Church History II I am studying Soren Kierkegaard. Kierkegaard in Denmark during the 19th Century dropped on a bombshell on that nation when he said Christianity no longer existed in Denmark. There were churches all over the place. People chalked it up to Kierkegaard’s melancholy.

Luther once said that the first half of the Gospel is to get people “unsaved” so they do not think they are saved.

Do you think we need to “unsave” American Christians once again?

  1. The first and most urgent need for the Church in America today is to be the Church, and to let the world be the world – loosely paraphrased from Stanley Hauerwas.

    So, in a word, yes.

  2. Interesting that it’s so easy for us to chalk it up to someone else’s problem (Kierkegaard’s melancholy) so we don’t have to examine ourselves.

    Lord help us. Send the conviction of your Holy Spirit. Amen.
