Younger evangelicals seem to focus less on orthodoxy doctrines and so forth than ortho proxy. Living your faith out to so younger evangelicals are focused on more social issues, helping the poor, the oppressed minorities racial reconciliation immigration of these kinds of things did the older generation of believers lacks something in that regard like it was never enough attention or focus on those kinds of things, or is this the younger generation going down a road that's gonna take them away from a sound faith away from the proclamation of the gospel into more of a social theology. We are a couple things one is eager back a century and were back into the 1920s and got Jager estimation book Christianity and liberalism any sort that hook up with is Christianity a doctrine or lifestyle, and he ends up saying it's both.
The liberals want to say Christianity is a lifestyle only does matter what you believe it matters how you live not know the doctrines of Christ. It's the Beatitudes are you living out the Beatitudes with me two dozen. It's brilliant.
He says it's both. It's a doctrine in the lifestyle but then he says this.
It's a doctrine first.
The lifestyle is always the fruit of the gospel and never confuse the fruit of the gospel for the substance of the gospel. Now we can't just have the doctrine and not care about how we live. We are commanded to love our neighbor.
That is the fruit of the gospel and is very easy to distinguish the fruit of the gospel with the gospel itself was very easy to sever the fruit of the gospel from the gospel itself. And so, whether the older generation was better at it or not good at it and that that may be debatable, but what we are seeing in this current especially the millennial's of evangelicals is worth hearing them say the same thing the liberals were saying in the 1920s we can have Christianity without the doctrine. That's just not true.
Now let's applaud the desire to live out the gospel and the desire to see the fruit of the gospel displayed in our churches and in our lives but let's never sever the fruit of the gospel from the truth of the gospel and the doctrines of the gospel so I know it's an old book classic book, but I'd say let's just go back and read matron again and liberalism in chapter 1.
Let's just try to get that right because that's so crucial that relationship doctrine and lifestyle the gospel in the fruit of the gospel. We hope this program is a ministry visit.org I'm David
