Christless Evangelical Christianity

"Judging by its commercial, political and media success, the Evangelical movement seems to be booming, but is it still Christian?

The Bible is mined for quotes but largely irrelevant.

God is used as a personal resource rather than known, worshiped, and trusted.

Jesus Christ is a coach with a good game plan for our victory rather than a Savior who already achieved it for us.

Salvation is more a matter of having our best life now than being saved from God’s judgment by God Himself.

The Holy Spirit is an electrical outlet we can plug into for the power we need to be all we can be."

Dr. Mike Horton, Westminster Seminary California
