為何福音派山頭主義戕害基督福音?

原刊於Christianity Today,2014年10月21日

The reaction to my analysis of the God TV debacle has been interesting, to say the least.

Many people were appreciative and thankful that someone articulated what they were thinking. Others were horrified at what they perceived as an attack on Christian brothers and sisters. While I expected that, what intrigued me most was the extent to which Christians tend to be caught up in what can only be described as tribalistic reactions. 

A classic example of this concerns Bart Campolo, son of Tony, who announced his deconversion to atheism. What intrigued me most of all was Bart’s report of Tony’s reaction: his father was not concerned about hell or the consequences of unbelief, but rather he was saddened that his son no longer belonged to his ‘tribe’. Is this really what being a Christian has been reduced to? You belong to a particular tribe? I had thought that Christ came to break down the walls of partition and to unite us in Christ. The only thing that matters is whether or not we are ‘in’ Christ
