內容簡介 Conservative Christianity in the United States has long been a beacon of hope. Conservative churches have withstood tidal waves of liberal theology and cultural shifts towards secularism over recent decades. Through it all, we have stood firm and remained committed to orthodoxy. As good as our intentions have been, however, we are not without fault. In our commitment to conservativism, we have lost our way and failed in some areas. It is important for us to be honest and vulnerable about these failings so we can correct our course and be the people God has called us to be. The American Masquerade confronts many of these failures such as: - Moralism replacing the true gospel- Impotency of the local church- Politicizing of the faith- Worshiping the nation over ChristPastors, believers, and friends, I urge you to open your hearts and be honest with yourselves. We have done so much right, but we have also done our fair share of wrong. Let God's truth break our hearts, redirect our course, and recover our purpose.
