Protestantism: In An American Context
The (white) mainline churches have become oblivious--due to their secularization. As one pastor said at a local church "they lost a lot of members to the Ethical Society a few years ago". The black protestant church remains fairly steady. Although due to cultural traditions rooted in governmental disenfranchisement and social marginilzation; liberty is not so much emphasized. Yet our common culture demands it. For without such our mutual character is at a loss--or not complete in ones affirmation of such. At the non-denominational churches: where anything goes--goes reason and tradition down the postmodern drain. These mega-churches are--for the most part--the mainline churches replacement. While meso-american immigrants bring a heretical Pentecostalism; of wich their tinged recovering Catholic selves/souls seem to mock... As the Asian faction in the local mainline church practices a segregated gathering--free from the others Wednesday gathering and bible study, due to a cultural distinction that was forsaked by the rest of the denomination. In contrast with such cultural contrast is individuality, culture, then the ever concerning regard of race. American culture falls to a globalized concern. At the usual head of this is Israel. Accompanied with an indifference towards Rome. The Protestant ordainment: to resist and reject the Papacy -- is lossed to a unfortunate ecumenism -- a legacy from the countercultures one-world indifference. One aspect of this is Martin Luther King's speech seeking such, where: indifference becomes unity--as a path to freedom for the negro. Well black America -- look to Africa and see the difference. As native whites realise their distinction from Europeans--not blinded by a ethno-racial correlation. In true cultural unity come to our cultures cross--free from discontent--of wich Christ has set you free.
