"Strange gods": Quote of the day

On the subject of the Uniting Church in Australia, Scott Stephens writes,
It is now a shell of its former self, like so much Liberal Protestantism throughout the West, having gone whoring after the strange gods of impotent theology, liturgical gimmickry, inert bureaucracy and social respectability.
Which is quoted in dedication to the Rev Phil Baiden, who I know will find such a fine and lyrical indictment of Liberal Protestantism useful in his own ecclesial context! :-)  (The rest of the article is also worth a read.)

  1. Thanks Jon.
    I was thinking how relevant that was to the URC in the UK, too.
    Thanks for the dedication.
