The Narrow Path vs. "Inclusivity"

This article by Matt Walsh is quite excellent:

It’s difficult to have grown-up conversations these days, because
people like yourself see every mention of moral truth as either a
personal attack or a statement of superiority. This is the real damage
you cause in the Faith. It’s not that you’re sinful — we all are, to be
sure — it’s that you want to be coddled. You want to shut
down professions of Truth that are inconvenient or uncomfortable. You
want to modify Christian teachings not because you tried them and found
them wrong, but because, to paraphrase Chesterton, you found them
difficult and don’t want to try them.

I have many sins, but I will not tell you they are not sins. I come
to Christ a sick and broken man looking for healing. You apparently come
a sick and broken man looking to be assured you were never sick and
broken to begin with. That is the only real difference between us. Or I
should say, it’s the only real difference between Christians and
“progressive Christians.” Both groups are sinful, both groups are weak,
both groups need Christ desperately, but one wants — though they may so
often fail — to go Christ’s way, and the other wants Christ to go
theirs.

This is only a short excerpt. I encourage you to read the whole thing.
