What is the worst threat Christianity in America (or anywhere) faces today? Lots of candidates, lots of ink being spilled and dollars being raised over that question.
So much of the current culture war depends on people on the right being convinced that wokeness is the worst threat America faces.
Let me let you in on a secret. It’s NOT. Wokeness (whatever that is) is NOT the biggest or worst threat.
(I’m not saying it’s not a threat or a problem, I’m not embracing it. I’m just saying it’s not the biggest threat.)
The worst threat America faces today is “Christians”, self- or other-deceived, who refuse to follow Christ.
The biggest threat to the cause of Christ is ALWAYS the threat from within. And by “within”, I mean the threat that lives within ME.
When G.K. Chesterton was asked “What is wrong with the world today?”, he replied “I am.” Agreed.
“It me,” as the kids say.
Or as that Jesus guy said, “Why do you say to your brother or sister, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ … ?”
