Are You a “Whatever” Person?
Yet most probably the greatest danger in the coming generations will not be in the extremes but in the soft center of almost-anything-goes, amiable accommodationism of current Evangelicalism. As in the time of the prophet Elijah, the postmodern church has become a breeding ground for the undecided, for fence sitters, for people who want to have their cake and eat it too, and so for syncretists who have forgotten the meaning of the word. There are too many Christians weary of taking a stand because they are so wary of repeating the mistakes of the past. They have become “whatever” people, those who hedge their bets and watch from the sidelines to see who will win the contest on the Mount Carmels of our day.
