It's like...you know...and stuff

Unfortunately, this is what most of the sidelined legacy denominations do every (other) summer.



So...like...does anybody want to, you know, talk about it?

I would ... if I knew what "sidelined legacy denominations" were.

Sure, Stan. A sidelined denomination is one that in prior days held great prominence in American religious discourse, but has lost her standing - normally by trying to be more relevant than faithful to revelation. They came out of the recovery of the Gospel in the Protestant Reformation. Thus, they have a legacy. Here's one, and another, and another.

You can recognize a sidelined denomination because it's leadership (including ministers) cross their fingers when they say the Apostle's Creed, they regularly wink at (or endorse) sin, and they are normally hemorrhaging members.

Great video...

Thanks for the explanation. I fear there are a great deal more than the "sidelined legacy denominations" that are functioning under as the video said. It is wrong in too many "Christians'" eyes to appear to be confident of anything we believe. Frightening, indeed.

Well noted, Stan. Western Civilization as a whole has taken this route. We've sold our birthright (which was largely given by the values of Christendom) for the pottage of victocratic security. We're going to reap the whirlwind because those who wish to enforce dhimmitude on us:
a) know what they believe and often why they believe it;
b) know how to exploit our weaknesses
1) victim-guilt
2) selfish-softness

As my buddy Stushie might say, we've become a nation of numpties.
