What's Wrong with Christianity Today?

This is not a reference to the magazine although we could talk about that later.  Nevertheless, what is wrong with today's brand of Christianity?  The answer is simple and Paul tells us in 2 Thess 2:3 and calls it "a falling away."  But falling away from what?  Paul explains in 2 Timothy 4 in further detail: 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.And Peter as well in 2 Peter 1:16:16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables... They have fallen away from the truth of the word of God (John 17:17) unto the fables of the world.  Because they have not known this truth either because they are not really saved or because of false teaching they have followed brands of Christianity that are based upon vain and cunningly devised fables.   So what does this have to do with modern Christianity?  Modern Christianity has "married (Pergamos)" pop culture and politics and the world (1 John 2:15) while famous and influential "Christians" are often quoted in the media as the "voice" or one of the voices of Christianity.  That being said, the world's most famous soccer mom, Sarah Palin-a professing kingdom building Christian, recently told Barbara Walters,"When I want divine inspiration, I turn to C.S. Lewis."  Sarah Palin only stated what is common in professing Christianity today: "We don't want to truth of the word of God, we want to learn about him in the Chronicles of Narnia"; a fable.  The really sad about about this entire comment is that most "Christians" today are so void of the truth that they actually think C.S. Lewis was a Christian.  Pastor Mike Hoggard had an excellent piece in a recent video about the Christian credentials of C.S. Lewis.  Before you watch it ask yourself: just who is that lion in his story?  2011 needs to be the year that we Bible believing Christians, with the help of God, do our diligence to return unsuspecting Christians (and unsaved persons) from the fables-Popery, ecumenicism, multiple gnostic translations, evolution, Calvinism, etc.-and [back] to the truth of the holy scriptures. Amen.
