This liberal mindset undercuts catechesis completely, for catechesis assumes the existence of authoritative truth that needs to be taught.
Brought up on this, we now reflect the subjectivist turn of the Western thought-world of more than a century ago: personal guesses and fantasies about God replace the church's dogma as our authority, a hermeneutic of habitual distrust and suspicion of dogma establishes itself, and dogma becomes a dirty word, loaded with overtones of obscurantism, tunnel vision, unreality, superstition, and mental enslavement.
Rather, it is a supernaturalizing personal relationship with a supernatural personal Savior.
Note: I wonder how they would defend thi catechetically?
Superficial smatterings of truth, blurry notions about God and godliness, and thoughtlessness about the issues of living-careerwise, com- munitywise, familywise, and churchwise-are all too often the marks of evangelical congregations today, particularly, if we may dare to say it, some newly planted ones.
