Are Your Children Following "Mutant" Form of Christianity?

Dear Christian parents,

Princeton professor and Minister Kenda Creasy Dean has issued a warning: your child may be following a "mutant" form of Christianity. Oh, and by the way, you're to blame:

Dean says more American teenagers are embracing what she calls "moralistic therapeutic deism." Translation: It's a watered-down faith that portrays God as a "divine therapist" whose chief goal is to boost people's self-esteem.

Dean is a minister, a professor at Princeton Theological Seminary and the author of "Almost Christian," a new book that argues that many parents and pastors are unwittingly passing on this self-serving strain of Christianity.

She says this "imposter'' faith is one reason teenagers abandon churches.
"If this is the God they're seeing in church, they are right to leave us in the dust," Dean says. "Churches don't give them enough to be passionate about."

Maybe this link is getting so much play because of a subconscious desire to see actual mutant Christians. I'm thinking of this specifically:

@Rocky. We don't want or need your tolerance. You'd be a merkin would you? Funny that christian yanks are the least tolerant people on the planet.

EVEN more strange, American Christians practice the Anti-Christ ritual of infant circumcision causing their kids to need theropy. They forgot that Jesus sacrificed His life to fulfill the covenent law making it unnecessary to allow yourselves to become circumcised.
