Sermon of the Week: 11/9/11 – Moralistic Therapeutic Deism

Below Dr. Michael Horton discusses the prevalence of Moralistic Therapeutic Deism within our church youth groups and broadly in the American church.  This will be an intro and Lord willing, I’ll be writing more about this.  In preparation for a forum on why our youth are leaving the church, I’ve read several of the books that summarize the youth data from the National Youth and Religion Study from which author Christian Smith coined the Moralistic Therapeutic Deism name.  The talk by Dr. Horton was given at the Ligonier West Coast Conference 2010: Christless Christianity.
