Are they milchtoasty and so accepting of deviant ideas because they don’t want to seem intolerant or offend anyone? Yes. Are too many theologians more committed to being popular best-sellers than tradents of the Holy Faith? Yes. Are too many theologians today more concerned with seeming ‘nice’ than being orthodox? Yes.
Consequently, theology is – for the majority even of Christians – invisible. Theologian / Churchmen (women) are a dying breed and it is the Church itself which is suffering for it.
Further, too few Pastors are theologians. Too many are business majors who run the Body of Christ as though it were a Wal-Mart. Thinking theologically too is a dying art, and it is the Church itself which is suffering for it.
