Answering Digital Idolatry with God's Word

Dave Garner has written a helpful article entitled Rescuing the Church from the Arms of Digital Deity - Returning to the Authority of Scripture.

I love this paragraph:

What social Gospel theorist Walter Rauschenbusch preached, Charles Sheldon popularized; “What did Jesus do?” became “What would Jesus do?” Morality and social justice supplanted redemption, and the living Christ died again, this time buried beneath unbelieving, yet captivating rhetoric. He was not to rise again in the liberal Protestant Church.
