A bias against theology…

Popular evangelical faith has developed a bias against theology (not to mention against the intellect), and what is more, it has elevated the bias to the level of a virtue, defending it as vigorously as democracy.

Nobody objects to a nondoctrinal…

J. Gresham Machen observed seventy-five years ago “this curious fact—when men talk thus about propagating Christianity without defending it, the thing that we are propagating is pretty sure not to be Christianity at all. They are propagating an anti-intellectualistic, nondoctrinal Modernism; and the reason why it requires no defense is simply that it is so completely in accord with the current of the age.” Nobody objects to a nondoctrinal Christianity because there is nothing to object to.
