Moralistic Therapeutic Deism: One of the many fake gods that our people are bowing down to…

1 Mar

Here’s a link to a video of Michael Horton, professor of systematic theology and apologetics at Westminster Seminary California, explaining what Christian Smith, sociologist at Duke University, coined Moralistic Therapeutic Deism.

From my observations, Moralistic Therapeutic Deism is the religion that we (and when I say “we,” I mean specifically those at GFC) have grown up in.  That is not to say that the entire United States hasn’t been affected by this religion.  But my hope is that, specifically, those of us in Ekklesia521 and GFC (more broadly), after having watched this video, will, by God’s grace, have our eyes opened and finally come out of this religion of Moralistic Therapeutic Deism.

Again here’s the link to the video.  (http://theresurgence.com/what-is-moralistic-therapeutic-deism)

Also, here’s the link to Christian’s Smith’s condensed 12-page article on the subject. (http://www.ptsem.edu/iym/lectures/2005/SmithMoralistic.pdf)
