BEWARE of the claims of being "more Christian"

René Girard I See Satan Fall Like Lightning

Christian dogma has always inspired distrust in Judaism and Islam, and nowadays many Christians are beginning to share that attitude (of contempt for Christian dogma). The Cross appears too strange to them, too outdated, to be taken seriously...

Christianity has been losing ground for centuries in the Western world, a decline that continues to accelerate. Now not only isolated individuals abandon the churches, but entire churches, led by their clergy, switch their allegiance and go over to the camp of "pluralism." This pluralism is a relativism that claims it is "more Christian" than the adherence to dogma because it is "kinder" and more "tolerant" toward non-Christian religions. p 122
