What will happen to Christian Hedonism in generations to come? Pastor John shares some eight dangers for young Christian Hedonists.
On Monday we talked about the relationship between Christian Hedonism and historic Reformed theology. Today we look at your fears and hopes for this movement, Pastor John, when you’re gone. The question comes from a friend of the ministry.
“Pastor John, it seems to me that after someone comes along with a paradigm-shifting theology or philosophy, like you have with Christian Hedonism, one of two things can happen with the next generation that takes up the cause. One, they can lose some of the balance of the original, provocatively overemphasizing certain aspects, minimizing certain qualifications or nuances, and thereby distorting it. Or, two, they can go deeper with the theology or philosophy, applying it to areas the original champion could not or did not. As you think about the future of Christian Hedonism, when you are off the scene someday, are there (a) some dangers that you would call the next generation to avoid and (b) some areas you hope they explore in greater depth or application?”
