And the angel said to them, β€œFear not, for behold, I bring you *good news* of *great joy* that will be for *all the people*. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a *Savior*, who is *Christ the Lord*." (Luke 2:10-11)

I'm afraid evangelical leaders are exchanging the good news of the gospel for a focus on the supposed sins of others. And if anyone dares to point this out, the worst imaginable assumptions are made concerning that person's character. I hear little about the hope of redemption.

How can the gospel, which is definitionally 'good news,' "become" *bad* news for anyone? It cannot. The gospel is propositional truth. The gospel is the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ for our sins. Christian leaders can blow about, but the gospel does not change.

RT @BethMooreLPM@twitter.com When the gospel has become bad news to the poor, to the oppressed, to the broken-hearted and imprisoned and good news to the proud, self-righteous and privileged instead, it is no longer the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The United States of America isn't a Christian nation. The United States of America isn't a Christian nation. The United States of America isn't a Christian nation...

...until you want to blame Christians for the actions of the United States of America against people of color.

RT @RazorsKiss@twitter.com: As I pointed out the other day - this is intersectionality - and notice that a black student's tweets - as a minor - are considered more privileged than anything from an LGBTQ.

This is how intersectionality works - and what we're being asked to adopt in the church. No thanks. twitter.com/DavidAFrench/statu

RT @AlsoACarpenter@twitter.com I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that you don't quite know what intersectionality even is, at least based on this tweet. It's not a law that can be violated, but a tool of social analysis. twitter.com/DennyBurk/status/1

RT @DennyBurk@twitter.com: Intersectionality is the most unforgiving, unsparing, and unmerciful system of legalism that I have ever seen. If you cross the line, there is no absolution or redemption. There is no expiation of the original sin of privilege. There is only a black hole of shame and disgrace.

Additionally or alternatively, a la @Sean_McDowell@twitter.com in New Kind of Apologist, we need media-savvy Christians who will help well-equipped Christian apologists to do these things.

TFW your theologically fringe friends start to fray.

RT @NPWhite717@twitter.com: *Dispy goes on national show with non-Christian and calls Christians who disagree with him antisemitic*

*Everyone else tells them that's a strawman and Dispensationalism didn't exist for the first 1800 years of church history*

Dispensationalists: "Why is everyone attacking us?"
