In light of a number of recent posts dealing with a range of topics on the nature of Christianity, I came across an observation that I think offers a bracing challenge to much that is American Protestantism today.

“Stanley Hauerwas has said that modern Protestantism has been the only form of Christianity in history to suppose that one could be a Christian by virtue of things which happen entirely inside one’s head. This supposition is true of modern Protestantism’s conservative and liberal versions alike—here Friedrich Schleiermacher and Dwight L. Moody basically agree.”

Do you agree? Disagree? Why? Why not?
