In The Beginning: The 19th Century Rise of Protestant Liberalism
Schleiermacher’s radical proposal that Christianity must adapt to its cultural milieu was the first of many liberal capitulations to evolving worldviews.

Immorality Embraced by So-Called Christian ‘Love’
God, [‘Christian’ liberals] believe, has certified and allowed the liberal/leftist agenda including abortion, the [hetero]sexual revolution… and the homosexual agenda which is seen as a defense of ‘love’ and ‘equality’…  These distortions and immoral positions… were illegal throughout the land as well as being non-starters in churches [for almost 21 centuries].  Now they are the law[s] of the land.  Thus the law[s] of the land of the U.S.A. [are] now totally [opposite of] the law[s] of [morality] enacted by Almighty God… [These anti-Christian ‘laws’] are rooted in a heresy in Christian theology known as antinomianism…  This heresy teaches that since salvation is by grace, and since Christians are no longer under the Law (of Moses), God’s grace and mercy extends to all in a way that sinful behavior is forgiven by God in Christ… [and] grace is extended without repentance…  Holy living [therefore], required by the Puritans [because it was prescribed by the Bible, including throughout the New Testament, e.g.  Col 3:5-6 , is] no longer essential in Christ…  In the contemporary [liberal] church world, tolerance of sin is no longer considered kind enough or loving enough… and anything that could be considered Christian judgmentalism [has been] muted by the liberal churches.  In the name of ‘love’, increasing numbers of churches [have become] tolerant of sin…  A ‘woman’s right to choose’ [to murder her own children in-utero] is [now] openly embraced by… the National Council of Churches… [and] homosexuality [even] among the clergy is ‘acceptable’…  That heresy [of antinomianism] over time became the basis for increasing toleration of sin [as well as INtoleration of Christian morality].  Toleration [then] morphed into celebration.  Today, the transvaluation of values predicted by the [atheist, anti-Christian] German philosopher Frederick Nietzsche, whereby good becomes bad and bad becomes good [cf.  Is 5:20 ], is a social reality.

Progressive “Theologians” Release Line Of Mood Rings For Determining                Doctrinal Truth

—————-

American society is now more ‘open’ than it was in the dark ages of the 1950’s.  Except it isn’t.  It still has its closets.  American society has merely changed the groups which it pushes into those closets.  Today, Christians are being forced into closets as the sexual minorities move out.

Liberalism Defined and Displayed:

[A| liberal ‘Christian’ is someone who is redefining the Christian faith so that it is shaped by one or more contemporary philosophies and/or ideologies.  In other words, the philosophies or ideologies change the ‘Christian’ faith so that the ‘faith’ is aligned with, and does not contradict, the philosophy or ideology in vogue.  [About a century] ago, the liberal ‘Christian’ faith began to change to fit with [materialistic naturalism/evolutionism, then] Marxism, and [eventually] the sexual revolution [most recently manifested by homosexuality and transgenderism].   Today [liberal ‘Christianity’ has also been assimilated by] postmodernism, feminism, and [occultic] spirituality.

Conservative Christianity [on the other hand] seeks biblically faithful, biblically controlled Christianity – a Christianity which is prepared [and willing] to dissent from the dominant philosophies and ideologies of society because Jesus Christ is the Lord and Saviour that people in every time and every people group truly need to be made right with the true and living God, creator and sustainer of all things.

Co-opting Jesus’ Name in the Name of Liberalism
… [the progressive] paradigm [proclaims that] the making of money is evil because money itself is evil… [liberal ‘Christians’ often] attempt to use the words of Christ to authenticate this belief… The problem is, Jesus never condemned society’s use of money, and never claimed it should be abolished in order to save people from its temptations… He speaks in parables about the kingdom of God being like men who deal in money and investing, with paid workers and servants (Matthew 20, 25). Jesus’s words hold the assumption that money is part of life, that societies use it and will use it for a long time. There’s even an implied capitalism there, with workers paid directly for a day’s work, and business owners having dominion over how they spend and distribute their capital (Matthew 20:13-15). It’s far from the [progressive ‘Christian’] dream…
