Alas, there is hope....recently I celebrated my 40th year on this earth. An event celebrated by some and almost wholly ignored by its benefacter.
The Zumbudu continues to read "The Bondage of the Will". Indeed it does appear that modern Protestants have lost their grasp of Christian Doctrine through lack of knowledge and instead chase after the latest "movement" or self ascribed prophet that comes along. It has been my own experience that it was only enough to seek the emotional experience of Salvation. What then when the emotions ebb? It is only seven days to the next Sunday or even a Wednesday service to see you through. Without a foundation of doctrine or knowledge of the Gospel and how it came to us can a Christian know who he his and where he stands before God.
It is not my assertion that Christ's fulfillment is lacking, that is certainly not true. I do maintain that a knowledge of how the Gospel came to us and of those who went before needs to be attained by those who God's Grace has allowed to be his children.
