Journalist Tries To Redefine Christianity. It Goes About As Well As You’d Expect.

It’s so cute when leftists try to secular-splain to Christians what Christianity is really all about (even the ones who claim to be Christians themselves). And when I say “cute,” I mean boneheaded stupid.

In the latest example of the religion-challenged lecturing Christians on our own beliefs, journalist Matthew Dowd offered this sterling theological explanation on basic Christianity –

Wait, wait, wait – an atheist could be a better Christian than an Actual Christian could be? Meaning, someone who doesn’t believe in God has a better understanding of Christian living than someone who believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and who came to redeem all humanity from our sins and give us a way to live in heaven with God?

Yeah, that makes LOADS of sense. Idiot.

Oh and it gets EVEN BETTER –

Um… yeah, Matthew. He kind of did come to establish a religion and a church. It’s written in the book of the Bible that (ironically enough) shares your first name –

17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

(Side Note: That’s verse is also one that Catholicism uses the most to prove their legitimacy as being the church that Jesus established from the beginning. Since Matthew Dowd is such a good Catholic and all.)

But, you know, that’s just a technicality. I’m sure we’re not actually supposed to take the words of the Son of God seriously or anything. The scriptures are soooo open to interpretation based on whatever worldly philosophies are in fashion these days. Who needs input from God Himself when you’re trying to understand spiritual things?

(Before anyone flips out, I’m being sarcastic.)

I do kind of like how Instapundit summed up this whole debate –

Also, this –

Just sayin’.
