The American Christian Industrial Complex

In the past two weeks we’ve witnessed yet another key influencer in the evangelical movement “give up” and move on. This one is Joshua Harris of I Kissed Dating Goodby fame (or infamy, as you will). There are two key discussions worth your listen.

Over the years, the American Christian Industrial Complex has yielded up quite a scrap heap. From Rob Bell to disasters like Bill Hybels and Willow Creek.

With examples like Joshua Harris, Rob Bell, or Michael Gungor, it meant “repenting” of what they did or said and then leaving the faith.

My question is this: When can we realize we need to repent and actually stay believing?

Just quick thoughts for the weekend.
