This video is precisely why I can never take Peter Leithart seriously. Its over the top set-up sounds like a movie trailer or a video game. I wish Theopolis would have a more modest spirit and stop trying to pitch itself like a NGO, telling us that they are fixing the world. I understand that that’s the game when you’re trying to raise money, but it’s a worldly method.
Is this website a protestant or Catholic one. I am not a Catholic and do not intend to become absorbed into Catholic teaching (too many errors).
Also Christ was here for 3 years as far as his ministry was concerned. Why is it that men write volumes upon volumes of books trying to explain the essence of Christianity when Christ’s actual words for 3 years, could probably fill only a few pages.
Also both Noah’s and Sodom’s era – where God destroyed everyone, including man, woman, and child and of course babies and saved only a few (a handful) – isn’t it the same today where basically the entire world has gone rogue and only a few will be saved. Then why are Christian institutions hung-up on immense amount of intellectualism and knowledge in advocating the Gospel. Is it possible that the few Christian organizations that remain are in bed with the world and have lost their way – and so it would be better for individuals to turn their backs on all organized Christian institutions and read the bible for themselves.
I’m a convinced Protestant.
