Right on, Matthew!!

Wheat and Chaff: "Modern versions of Christianity in this country put man at the center of his own religion, and are then surprised when man lives out the practical implication of that teaching by redesigning Christianity to fit his desires. They conduct market studies of local demographics to find out what their worship services ought to be like and are then surprised when their churches are full of people with consumerist mindsets, that go to church not to glorify and worship God, but to serve their own needs. It's a short jump from there to reading and interpreting the Bible to fit one's own theology, reinterpreting what you can reinterpret, and ignoring what you can't. And it's just another short jump from there to regarding the Bible itself as unnecessary."
