The Mushy Middle

by juju2112

Thoughts on the rise of atheism from Tim Keller, a pastor and author living in New York, NY.

I think it’s interesting to see again the common theme I’ve been hearing from pastors: If you’re not a totally, 100%, dedicated to God, Jesus-Freak, you’re not even a real Christian. In fact, you’re probably going to hell. In this case, the pastor doesn’t threaten the “mushy middle” with hellfire, he just dismisses them as if he never wanted them in his church to begin with.

I’m not sure what to think about this. I see the constant drumbeat of “be more fundamentalist” in lots of sermons, but I know lots of Christians who aren’t fundamentalists. What’s going on?
