Pre-modern Islam beats post-modern Christianity

Reader comment on item: Europe is Finished, Predicts Mark Steyn

Submitted by Jackdaw (United States), Nov 15, 2006 at 09:56

Pre-modern Islam beats post-modern Christianity is a true statement in every sense. Christless Christianity is dead Christianity. As a body is dead without the spirit, or a decapitated body is lifeless, so is progressive liberal Christianity dead religion: the head has been separated from the body. A post-Christian America is a dead America; insensate, it just doesn't know it yet.

Unless the United States turns back to the Living Christ, all the efforts and good will of conservatives and neo-conservatives is an exercise in futility and will only exhaust us with the same result. America's destiny and Europe's will be the same or similar. Yet we are willing, apparently, inexplicably, to die, in every sense of the meaning, nationally, physically, and spiritually rather than to turn back to the founding and historic source of Christian America's strength: the source of all healing, strength, and protection, which is alone the Living Lord, Christ Jesus. I am convinced that God would rather see a passionate belief of Muslims in the false religion of Islam than pseudo-Christianity. God can do more with the Muslims to redeem them than with dead faith nominal Christians who are chaff, and who's eternal judgement is exactly that of the unbelieving pagan or atheist collectivist liberal.
