Conservative Christian commentator Matt Walsh is condemning complacent Christians in America, saying that, in some cases, Christians are called to be intolerant.
Walsh, a nationally known podcast host and writer for the conservative online website The Daily Wire, is warning that many Christians in America today are constructing their own religion based on cherrypicked ideas from the Bible that support their agenda of tolerance and inclusion.
Walsh released his second book earlier this month titled Church of Cowards: A Wake-Up Call to Complacent Christians.
He told The Christian Post that the book offers his “diagnosis of the problem that most Christians recognize in our culture.”
“If you look at the statistics, we know that the number of Christians is declining while the number of secular atheists is going up,” Walsh told CP in a recent phone interview.
“I think we also know that the problem is even worse than the numbers suggest. If you were to talk to the professed Christians [in the U.S.], a startling percentage of them don’t actually believe in some of the essential doctrines of the Christian faith.”
A 2017 survey from the American Culture and Faith Institute shows that only about one in 10 Americans hold a biblical worldview even though nearly half of them claim to lead a Christian life. Among millennials, only four percent have a biblical worldview.
Various factors can play a role in a person’s faith and worldview formation. According to Walsh, those include parents, the church, education and culture.
“And that’s a problem because the culture itself is so aggressively hostile to Christian faith and very determined to, especially with kids, convert them into secularism and relativism,” Walsh argued.
“That’s an enormous problem because you’ve got so many Christians who don’t really know what their faith professes or what their faith even is. And if you don’t know what you believe in, exactly, then you’re not going to be able to maintain those beliefs.”
