A GREAT QUOTE FROM OS GUINNESS ABOUT TODAY'S EVANGELICALISM

A  GREAT  QUOTE  FROM  OS  GUINNESS  ABOUT  TODAY'S  EVANGELICALISM


If any of you have been following  what Franklin Graham has been saying and doing, it is clear that, unlike his father Billy,  he is not a compromiser, and is not afraid of speaking out about the compromising of what passes for evangelicalism today, and of publishing in Decision the comments of others who do likewise.  A case in point is the latest issue, June 2016, which on page 17 quotes the remarks of Os Guinness on this sordid subject.  I especially appreciate the opportunity to read these remarks because it has been a long time since I have read anything by him.  I vividly recall what I believe was his first book, Dust of Death, (published in either the late 60s or early 70s, when he was getting started, and I welcomed him as sort of the British version of Francis Schaeffer,  one of my greatest heroes.  Here is what Guinness says today:

"American Evangelicalism has lost its way.  Much of the Evangelical movement is in the process of melting down and following the disastrous trajectory of mainline Protestant liberalism, which has betrayed the Gospel".

Amen!!
