Hey There Uk Well The World Of Evangelical

Christianity was rocked or perhaps better shocked Recently with the announcement that Hank Hannah Graff hosted the Bible anti-man radio broadcast and president of the Christian Research Institute converted to Eastern Orthodoxy. He was received into the Greek Orthodox Church through Chrismation this past Palm Sunday the day of the terrible terrorist murder of Coptic Christians in Egypt. Now Hannah Grass moved from Protestantism into Eastern Orthodoxy has gotten some pretty mixed reviews for the most part. It’s just treated as a as a newsworthy item. But some bloggers have expressed their concern that Hannah Graff is turning away from Evangelical Biblical theology.

In Fact Rather Extreme Bloggers Gone So

far as to accuse Hannah Graph of actually leaving the Christian faith. Now I see such reactions as completely Myopic. I I made a similar change over 10 years ago when I was received into the Greek Orthodox Church and I know Several people have also made the switch as it were and I think that what Hannah Graf is actually doing is very predictable. Now he of course has his own personal reasons for making the change from the Protestant Church to the Orthodox Church, but his conversion is actually part of a trend that’s going on worldwide and this trend involves nothing less than a return. An intentional return to traditional ways of life and belief which scholars call read traditional ization.

What We Have To Understand Is

that decades of secular globalization but actually D traditionalized cultures and societies replacing traditional ways of life with more global istic and consumer-based lifestyles. So, while traditional societies believe that every person born into the world is born into a world of divine obligation that we’re morally obliged conform our lives into a harmonious relationship with the divine meaning and purpose of the world Around us Global Istic. Secular societies reduce the human person to a sovereign individual who has no moral obligations apart from that which he or she chooses for his or her self and so global Istic secular societies tend to be very hostile towards traditions. Since traditional conceptions of say religion, gender sexuality are now considered unduly, oppressive intolerant and unjust now. The The fact is is that decades of the secular globalization has reignited and reawakened a hunger for a longing for traditional ways of life and society.

Its Not Just A Matter Of Farmers

markets being set up to counter the anti-communal effects to say the local mall globalization provokes similar sentiments that create a groundswell of support for return to far more traditional and religious ways of life. For example, we’re seeing today nothing less than the reawakening of Byzantine inspired Christian civilization in Eastern Europe not only as Rush rebuilt over 15 thousand churches since the end of communism, but a recent survey found that over 30 percent of Russians would like to see some kind of return to some kind of Minar Kacal rule comparable to the Czars just a few months back. The Catholic Bishops of Poland in the presence of President Andres Duda and many. Catholic Pilgrims officially recognized Jesus Christ as the king of Poland and called upon him to rule over the nation, its people and their political leaders. You have hungry reincorporating Christianity right into their national constitution.

You Have The President Of Moldova

saying that his country has no future without Christianity. You have polls that indicate that the Orthodox Church is the single most trusted institution in nations such as Georgia and Bulgaria and we’re finding that this UK radition ‘el is a shin is particularly evident among young people. When Pope Benedict brought back the Latin MAss, also known as the tried Endtime MAss. It was expected that the congregants showing up for its revitalization would be people basically over the age of 60 rolled enough to remember their Latin from before the Second Vatican Council in the 1960s that replaced the Latin Mass with vernacular worship instead to everyone’s amazement. The majority of congregants showing up to this Latin Mass were Catholics in their late teens and early twenties, and when asked about this priest such as the Reverend Christopher Smith in South Carolina actually conducts a Latin Mass.

He Nets That Young People See

a great sense of beauty in reverence and devotion and also a sense of historical continuity. They’re enamored with praying the same prayers that Saints from 1500 years ago were praying when they went to Mass in the same language and father Smith is further note that attendance at the parishes Latin Mass has grown from about sixty. to more than 300 worshippers. Moreover, you have the Renaissance of classical Christian education throughout the nation, which of course involves the revitalization of Latin and Greek as well as theology is the Queen of the Sciences and the reading of the literary classics. You have a mass boom in traditional homeschooling both here in the States and interestingly enough in Russia.

You Have A Return To Big Families Where

it’s no longer an anomaly. Among conservative Christians have six seven or eight children. In fact, through mass procreation Amma Sir Amish are doubling in population every 20 years. You have the advent of prayer book, Presbyterians and churches rediscovering the liturgical calendar and practicing things like Ash Wednesday and the hottest thing in Christian circles. Right now is what’s called the Benedict option a commune life world modeled after the tradition of St.

Benedict.

Now this read traditional ization. is not only going on informally Christian civilizations We’re seeing the advent for example of Sharia councils in the UK that arbitrate between conflicts among Muslims. We’re seeing the revival of Imperial Shintoism at the highest levels of the Japanese government we’re seeing a revitalization of Confucian philosophy among Chinese officials Hindu nationalism in India, Islam in Turkey and on and on and on and of course we have a tsunami of nationalist populism sweeping throughout Europe in the United States, all of which involves some form of reawakening localized traditions, customs languages, ethnicities and religions as mechanisms of resistance against secular eyes and globalist tendencies.

So In Many Respects.

I see Hank Hannah Grass conversion to Orthodoxy really is par for the course of the read traditional ization that’s going on all around us. In response to the very anti-cultural anti-traditional dynamics of Sack your globalization and I think we have to understand that for many Christians Protestantism just really doesn’t cut it when it comes to satisfying this craving for traditionally grounded expressions and experiences of the Christian faith. There are certainly evangelicals, such as Robert Weber, the late Robert whoever who’ve recognize this impoverishment and have sought to reintroduce historic liturgical practices back into the life world of Protestant churches particularly those centering on the Eucharist, but for many such as hand calligraphed.

Those Efforts Are Not Quite Enough,

so they’ve turned to those very churches that serve as the resources from which such liturgical renewal is actually being drawn in the first place and that was. Certainly the case when it came to my decision to leave the Protestant Church, as was the case with many of my fellow converts and so I do think that Hank Hannah grass detractors are highly myopic in how they’re interpreting is conversion. I think they failed to see that this is in fact indicative of a worldwide conversion away from a secularized vision of life and toward a more traditional vision of society culture and faith God bless.
