Kiln blog: War on Western Moral Assumptions

Be not deceived; the mainstream churches will not take kindly to our characterization of them. They aren’t evil in the sense of knowingly perverse, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t following a perversion of the gospel message. The vast majority of mainstream Western Christians are deceived, and it is a divine mercy that we do what we can to get their attention. It is the leadership where we are likely to find some who recognize that, in our refusal to build little kingdoms for ourselves, we are the greatest threat to their little kingdoms.
