Christless Christianity

What happens when we take Christ out of Christianity?

Evangelical Christianity in North America – and indeed the rest of the world – is at a crucial juncture. On one hand, many younger believers have grown dissatisfied with the shallow consumerism of their parents’ generation and the way it played out in their churches. Many are growing weary of God as a personal shopper, therapist, and entertainer or life coach. Some are drifting from a high view of Scripture and creedal Christianity in favor of an eclectic spirituality; others are attracted to Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox traditions. However, many are putting their toe in the pool of the Reformation – and some are diving into the deep end. We’re right there, engaging these young believers on the move, introducing them to the rich resources of the Reformation and calling them to invest their life and time in local churches that will build them up in the faith.

In these episodes, the White Horse Inn hosts are your guide to understanding and identifying a big problem in the American church: the creeping fog of countless sermons in churches across the country that focus on moralistic concerns and personal transformation rather than the theology of the cross. Christ has gotten lost in the shuffle as we invert Paul's warnings by intentionally preaching ourselves, and not Christ crucified.

This MP3 CD is loaded with more than 40 extended-length episodes of the White Horse Inn and more than a dozen articles from Modern Reformation. Our "usual cast of characters" diagnose the problem of Christless Christianity, then they help us to rediscover the power of Gospel-centered preaching, worship, and discipleship that enables Christians to grow in grace.

Special Message from Mike Horton

Dear Friends of the INN,

We are regular listeners and readers of WHI and MR and richly blessed thereby. If anyone ever thinks that WHI is too heady for kids, their kids are missing out. My 7 and 10 year olds listen almost every night at bedtime. Chronicles of Narnia or WHI? Often the later wins out! Blessings on an essential ministry in our day.

Notes like these encourage us, and I want you to be encouraged too, because your support is being used by God to transform the lives of people just like you and me. That’s what White Horse Inn ultimately aims for – to see lives, even whole families, and generations of families – transformed by the truth of the gospel. You can play an important role in that work.

And our work is far from over.

For the first time in modern history, the church in the United States is shrinking. The quest for relevance in both liberal and conservative churches has failed. Trying to make church “seeker friendly” has failed. Many churches have lost confidence in God’s Word as they preach good advice instead of good news. Today’s problems often stem from a failure to submit to Scripture in our churches, our theology, and our own selves.

The recovery of Sola Scriptura is the church’s only hope.

That’s why I’m asking you to do three things right now.

          1. Pray that White Horse Inn will continue faithfully in our mission to help Christians here and abroad to “know what they believe and why they believe it” and to be able to give an answer for the hope that is in them.
          2. Pray that our resources (our podcast, magazine, study kits, website, and my teaching opportunities both here and abroad) will encourage churches in their faithfulness and enable Christians to find faithful churches.
          3. Pray that the plans we’ve made for 2015 will glorify God and be a blessing to Christ’s church.

Like me, I know that you also believe this marvelous truth: we have the great privilege of being involved in what God is doing here on earth as he builds his church. God uses ordinary means – our prayers, our work, our time, and our talents – to do this work and it all brings glory to him.

We invite you to continue to help advance our mission in 2015
by including us in your year-end giving.
Our goal is ambitious: we aim to raise $500,000 before December 31.

As the New Year approaches we are carefully and thoughtfully planning WHI shows, MR articles, and study kits for individual, group, and family study. We are working hard to make all our content – past and present – easier to access and share on a brand new website – the main way our global audience listens and learns. Do you realize that over 3,000,000 people from over 180 countries have accessed our material? We are continuing to form partnerships with key leaders in South Asia and Africa as part of our international strategy to help them combat the bad theology that Western Christianity has exported for much of the last century.

I realize the White Horse Inn is one of many organizations seeking much needed year-end support. Please prayerfully consider a gift to enable us to help people here and around the world know what they believe and why they believe it.

I am deeply grateful for your prayers and financial support of our work.

In Christ,

Michael Horton
