Syndicated TV and radio host Todd Friel pulls no punches in criticizing evangelicals for the shocking demise of American morality.
"With 350,000 Protestant churches in America, our national anthem should be A Mighty Fortress Is Our God. Instead, we are Slip Sliding Away," he says.
How did the "moral majority" become the world's worst haters and bigots? Because the influential evangelical church of yester-year is virtually unrecognizable.
In his new book, Judge Not, Friel exposes evangelical trends such as:
- Youth pastors who force their students to drink a can of Coke through another student's dirty sock or put peanut butter in their armpits for students to lick out.
- Pastors who instruct their married couples to have sex every day for 30 days.
- Churches that applaud when their pastor zip-lines into the sanctuary dressed as Spider Man.
Judge Not enables readers to actually do something to put an end to the chicanery that pervades far too many churches, with chapter titles such as "Judging Christians for Judging Christians," "Pastors Who Think Jesus Needs Help," "Youth Group Madness," "Happy-Clappy Church," "Non-Christian Preaching," "Really Lame Worship Music," "Divorce in the Church," "Twisting Scripture," "Big-Haired Christian TV," "Embracing Christian Celebrities," "Being Disgusted by Homosexuals" and "A High View of Scripture," among others.
In Judge Not, Friel dares to violate evangelicalism's first commandment: You shall not judge. Instead, he satirically and painfully exposes some of the rot in the underbelly of the contemporary church, and points to a solution to help rescue the church, save souls and glorify God.
