Peter Rollins – “No Conviction”

Carl Raschke writes,

Like ancient Israel’s subtle entanglement with local pagan cults, many evangelical Christians, including many postmodern adherents, have seen the power of the gospel dwindle in their lives and their churches because they have gone whoring after the false gods of spiritual and material consumption. Just as the ancient worshipers at Jewish shrines could not differentiate between worship of the one God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and local fertility rites, contemporary Christians fail to distinguish between worship as self-surrender and self-gratification. (Raschke, GloboChrist: The Great Commission Takes a Postmodern Turn,p.107)
