    new evangelical brand of christianity is that I've had many of them tell me that their actions on Earth are irrelevant.  What is meaningful is that they have a "personal relationship with Jesus."  I'm not denigrating them for that but the hypocrisy inherent in that statement when compared to their actions is startling.

    reality has a well-known liberal bias

      Our actions on earth are vital in how we work out our faith.  C.S. Lewis said that it was those actions that prepare us for Heaven.  Unfortunately, some Christian organizations seem to be stressing obedience over conscience, and the illusion of certainty over a search for truth; and that is a truly scary belief system.
