Feurbarch was one of the few atheists who actually offered a penetrating and insightful critique of Christianity. He said the Christian faith is merely one’s psychological projections onto an external reality. Let that sink in. Unless you presuppose some form of extra-nos kingdom announcement view of the gospel, it’s really hard to say he is wrong. But let’s say he is. Moving on. This is actually the same critique I offered of modern day neo-Paganism. The average neo-Pagan is projecting onto Old Norse a religion that has been tamed by Christianity. You are not getting clean Swedish models and noble axe-wielding men fighting off Muslim hordes. Odin was a sex-depraved fiend.
But back to church hopping. Let all convertskii realize this: when you go to a Novus Ordo Mass, are you seeing Charlemagnes in the pews or some gay Jesuit priest? When you go to a GOARCH or OCA church, are you seeing St Alexander Nevsky who massacred the Teutonic knights on “The Battle on the Ice,” or people going through the motions? When you to, dare I say, a Reformed church, are you seeing John Knox with a sword in his hand, or Covenanters armed to the teeth ready to kill English dragoons, or do you see….well, you get the idea.
Look before you leap.
