Replacing Christianity

Lee Duigon, a contributing editor with the Chalcedon Foundation, calls to our attention that because of  “biblical illiteracy—or, in many cases, willful blindness and rebellion—people can call themselves “Christians” while rejecting Christian teachings.” I actually coined a term for these so-called Christians: low-information evangelicals.  I penned a piece about them entitled “The low-information evangelical“(LIE) and made […]
