I am proudly, and deeply, Southern. My late Grandfather would have said, “That boy’s Southern to the bone.” And he would have been right!
You see, the South is slam full of churches; it’s covered up with them like ticks on a redbone hound, in fact. But the churches of the South are largely gospel-less gatherings that largely teach what Christian Smith has called therapeutic moralistic deism. Our Southern churches have begun the dangerous process of assuming the gospel; once that happens, you’re only one generation away from apostasy.
The burden of this blog is to call the churches of the Southern United States back to a full-orbed presentation of the gospel, specifically as the Word is ministered from the pulpit. This blog exists to help pastors; if there is any way at all that I can be of assistance to you, please comment anywhere on the blog and I will respond just as quickly as possible.
