Therapeutic Christianity

Posted on January 18, 2019 at 9:40 AM

A sad trend all over the globe right now: In fear of legal attacks so-called "ex-gay ministries" (nothing much left of that) change their names and bow down to therapeutic Christianity. They dig out some wanna-be psychologic titles and make their mission statement sound so wishy-washy anybody can live with it - and nobody will be fed (let alone spiritually). Of course, the (former) Christian message is (almost) non existent - and if there is a reference to it, it is in the context of a cosmetic supplement to wellness-counseling that makes the client feel fuzzy and warm, but does not call him to repentence anymore. Gone the bold Christian stand that holds on firm like a rock whatever persecution may come. Long live cafeteria Christianity where everybody can choose his or her spiritual cocktail.

The former message of freedom from homosexuality is brushed off the table ("sexuality is not open for change") while at the same time timid references are made to scientific research that speaks of the "fluidity" of sexuality. You can't have it both ways! Stop sitting on the fence. Decide which side you're on and stay there!
