She is also absolutely right. The forces of “I want to be liked” have invaded both institutions and are trying to twist Biblical theology to be more popular and less confrontational.
From my vantage point, knowing people who have bought into what Mrs. Butterfield is talking about, these guys want to be liked. They view themselves as good guys drawing people to the gospel and have decided they and the gospel must adapt ever so slightly to attract millennials. Yes, many of them themselves are millennials.
But in making their change, they’ve altered the gospel and now have invented a class of sin that God would find he can overlook without Christ on the cross.
