I Blame Us, Part 4: The Failure

Yesterday I wrote about the scourge of antinomianism which has all but erased traditional protestant doctrine from the evangelical world. While thorough antinomians may be in a minority; they are both vocal and influential. Most evangelicals have at least abandoned part of the law. Many have adopted a form of homiletical antinomianism – an antinomianism of message if you will. It is as though we are permitted to believe in moral law, so long as we never preach it and rarely write about it. Where the law is still permitted to be discussed, it is only with regard to its first (evangelistic) use. Talk of the law restraining human corruption is forgotten, while talk of the law as a standard for Christian ethics is strongly resisted within the church.

But what does any of this have to do with the moral collapse in culture? After all, a solid majority even of self-professed evangelicals still oppose gay marriage, and we are nearly unanimous in our opposition to the culture of death characterized by Planned Parenthood. Are we indeed to blame?
