What do you say? Apparently it has progressed over time and to this day without the gospel in the Roman Catholic and progressive churches. Although the author of this book we are reading at church focuses on Catholics I think progressives are just as bad but at a far smaller number. What the result today is are lifeless and dead churches that do not know nor preach the gospel. Dozens of progressive churches in Denver CO call themselves Christian but are dead. This developed during the mid-evil period. How can the gospel be rescued and or defended today? I say that we boldly point out error, live gospel based lives, and preach the gospel. But how can this be done?
