My beautiful wife, Leslie, just shared a video with me that I thought was very intriguing. I hadn’t heard the term “moralistic therapeutic deism” before, but if you have a spare 6 minutes this is a fascinating introduction:

Discussion Questions?

  • Do you think moralistic therapeutic deism is a problem for the church?
  • Are Christian colleges anchoring students in the faith or setting them up for failure?
  • Should colleges be responsible for the spiritual formation of their students or is that the job of local churches?

I look forward to hearing all your thoughts! God bless!
