What Sets Progressive Christianity Apart from Historic Christianity? With David Young—The Alisa Childers Podcast #97
David Young, author of the book, "A Grand Illusion: How Progressive Christianity Undermines Biblical Faith," joins me to talk about the history of progressive Christianity, specifically traced through the Unitarian movement in New England in the 1700's. David shares his story of getting his Phd from Vanderbilt, a theologically liberal university, and how that helped him recognize progressive Christianity and its influence in the church.

Hey thanks for this, another great podcast. I appreciated you setting the record straight about christians definitely needing to vote. I belive the world isn’t making a difference between theology and politics and that means we are forced to get involved politically as well. I think many churches don’t want to be considered political and that’s why they don’t talk about issued like abortion etc...The political system in the U.S. does make it quite difficult for christians however as there are pretty much only two parties and you basically have to identify with one of them, there are little nuances and the country is extremely divided, you‘ll end up getting thrown into one of two buckets and that’s how the public will see you....it’s much easier here in Switzerland where there’s much more variety....

This is a question I'm sure you've answered elsewhere so forgive me if I'm being redundant but why do you refer to it as 'progressive Christianity' when it isn't Christianity at all? Couldn't that perpetuate the belief that there are different kinds of Christianity? Wouldn't a term like 'progressive ideology' be more accurate?
