Does traditional evangelical Christianity have anything to say in our modern time? With the rise of millennial thinking can early 20th century Fundamentalism and present Evangelicalism effectively meet the needs of today or must we turn to new forms of spirituality for the heart, head, and hand? Join us this evening at 8p Central as we welcome Dr. Gary Zustiak to SND. Gary is an educator, counselor, youth specialist and millennial expert. We will also be giving away a copy of Gary’s book, The Next Generation: Understanding and Meeting the Needs of Generation X
So feel free to send in questions now and we’ll see you later on this evening.
I have a confession to make. I’m sorry. But for a long time I have tried to shy away from the term “Fundamentalist.” Tried? Well actually I’ve purposefully said before that I am in no uncertain terms; “not a Fundamentalist.” Now I’m not so sure. The issue with the term is that the only time we see it in print or conversation these days is when it is used to compare a Christian to the Westboro Baptist Church cult or an Islamic group that wants to take over the world. You see my dilemma?
The problem is that the term today is thrown onto anyone who opposes gay marriage or really any social pillar that the politically correct left holds sacred. In essence the media has beaten the dead horse of the Westboro comparison to such an extent that the true ideals of fundamentalist thought are now unrecognizable.
