Post on "Deconstruction" + Doubt
Here's a good article on something I mentioned Sunday, the current phenomenom of "deconstruction," that is, Christians publicly rejecting the faith for the sake of some form of atheism or secularlism, or perhaps some diluted form of it, bearing little resemblance to orthodox, biblical Christianity. All of us (myself included) struggle with various forms of doubt. But Jesus always responds mercifully to those who come seeking his help, crying out, "Help my unbelief!"
Here's a key quote from Rinehart's article:
