No Offense

No Offense.

The author says: ‘Evangelicals have grown not only more tolerant, but also more tolerable. Is it possible, however, to be too inoffensive?’

I thank Scot McKnight for this link.

An interesting point of view, worth considering.

Can evangelicals safeguard both civility and conviction, without sacrificing any of them? They have not proven being very successful in this until now.

  1. “…those who care about maintaining the historic boundaries of orthodoxy would be wise not to ignore Hunter’s conclusion that although “the evangelical life-world . . . has not gone as far as the modernists in Protestantism, the process is identical.”

    The above phrase closes the article

    I wonder what is the author view on the “modernists in Protestantism” because IF the “process is identical” for the evangelicals than one could foresee the future of the latter by watching the evolution of the former.
