How dare you

No surprises here. This is just one example, of many. Folks seem upset that people are critical of McLaren. Of course none of those responding really understand him and they are drawing unfair conclusions because this is only the 6th time McLaren denies something. Sometimes you wonder if ignoring it completely would be better. Apparently it is unkind to disagree, to hold convictions, to contend for the faith once delivered, and to believe certain things. I leave you with the words of Paul, “I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive.” If this doesn’t mirror contemporary evangelicalism I don’t know what does. Rant over.
