The following article which suggests that mainline Protestantism has declared itself to be a safe space from the gospel message is a satirical article from the Babylon Bee website. However, even though the article in and of itself is not to be taken seriously, there is a basis for the satire in that many churches today are becoming anything but deliverers of the biblical gospel message. A quick Google search turned up several articles, (links below), which attest to this fact.
There will always be a remnant of true believers, and the church of Jesus Christ will always continue to grow, but as the days march on a good portion of what is called 'Christianity' today will be quick to toss out sound doctrine, and will begin to worship another Jesus and another gospel.
For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 2 Timothy 4:3 NIV
This movement is then indicative of the times we are now living in, the time just prior to the coming Tribulation period.
Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, 2 Thessalonians 2:3 NASB
Mainline Protestantism Declared A Safe Space For Those Offended By The Gospel
While some college campuses have established safe spaces where the disenfranchised can avoid the pressures, biases, and judgement of the world, mainline Protestant denominations are taking it one step further. The entire umbrella group has now been designated a safe space for those who would otherwise be offended by the gospel, sources confirmed Wednesday.
Speaking on behalf of a plethora of denominations including the Presbyterian Church (USA), the Episcopal Church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and the United Methodist Church, a spokesperson issued the following statement: “We are in agreement that there is a great need for churches to rise up and create spaces that are safe for questioning and accepting our identities, doubts, fears, failures, and blatant sins. Effective immediately, we are declaring all mainline Protestant churches safe spaces, where there are no judgments, conviction, repentance, or gospel presentations whatsoever.”
The statement listed elements that safe space churches should remove from their premises, including “crosses, Bibles, pulpits, organs, hymnals, systematic theologies, and sermons exhibiting any form of triggering micro-aggression. Be considerate.” Words like “sin,” “hell,” “death,” “wrath,” “propitiation,” and “substitutionary atonement” are also on the ban list.
