Modern Christianity is a gross perversion of true Christianity



   Modern Christianity has gone far astray from the true 
      Christianity of the Bible.  How?  In the following ways: 

   HELL.  The Bible is clear about the fact of a hell.  It is 
      unequivocal about the existence of hell and is very specific 
      in its description of hell.  Modern Christianity has lost 
      its belief in a real hell.  Some may say they believe in it 
      but still they hardly do.  Preachers don't preach it and 
      people don't talk about it.  The idea of eternal damnation 
      is of key, fundamental importance in Christian theology 
      (along with the concepts of sin and Good and Evil).  If you 
      delete the concept of hell you delete a key part of the 
      underlying structure. 

   GOD IS LOVE.  Much of modern Christianity believes God is all 
      love, compassion, mercy and tolerance.  This is at variance 
      with biblical teaching.  The Bible presents God as 
      compassionate, forgiving and loving toward those righteous 
      few who love and serve him.  And he is a God that is 
      concerned about the lost but, nonetheless, holding a hell 
      and eternal damnation in reserve for those who go the way of 
      sin and immorality.  The God of the Bible is a strict God 
      who will not tolerate or accept sin. 

   SATAN.  Modern Christianity doesn't believe in Satan, mostly.  
      Some may, but probably only in a theoretical way, because 
      they know the Bible says he exists. 

   THE SUPERNATURAL.  Much of modern Christianity doesn't believe 
      in miracles and the supernatural.
