Disclaimer: not all young Christians are hipsters and not all hipster Christians spend their time acting like they would like to hide the fundamentalist folks in Christianity in a broom closet, along with their hardworking old grandmother who makes them feel ashamed in front of their friends by her terminal lack of coolness.
But there are enough young hipsters like that in Christianity to be ironic.
Ironic because they denounce fundamentalists for hating them and trying to make them go away.
They denounce us while using these same tactics against us.
Enough already. Mom here! I don’t care who started it. Let’s just stop it. We are all part of the same Christian camp.
The above post doesn’t address many things theologically.
If you want to be a hipster Christian and defend marriage as being other than Christ defined it (one man, one woman, for life), then show me where the moral authority comes from to do that.
If you want to believe in theistic evolution, explain to me theologically how death came along before Adam and Eve fell.
If you want to reconcile a world that is millions of years old with a Saviour who was born of a virgin, explain to me how a God who wasn’t capable of creating an old universe in the Old Testament (with starlight already in progress, since stars that we can see are millions of light years from earth) suddenly became capable of creating a virgin birth in the New Testament.
There are lots of things that need to be addressed theologically by the above post. They were not even attempted. The writer merely did some terminally cool posturing. I throw a flag on his play.
And just sneering at fundamentalists does not count as a logical argument. In fact, that is called an ad hominem argument, for anyone who is truly looking to learn the fair rules of debate.
