Last week, Capitol Ministries held its second Annual Fund-Raising Dinner in conjunction with the International Ag Expo in Tulare, CA.
We thought you might like to hear how the dinner was perceived by Peter Montgomery, Senior Fellow for People for the American Way, a zealous, ultra-liberal public-policy lobbying organization, and one of Capitol Ministries constant critics.
You’ll note that Montgomery continues to criticize Drollinger for holding an extreme view of Scripture and for teaching that Liberal Theology and the Social Gospel are not true Christianity, according to the standard set by God’s Word.
Drollinger teaches the traditional Evangelical Gospel, known as the biblical, grammatical, historical, normative school of Biblical interpretation.
Read more about this in Drollinger’s Bible study, Can You Make the Bible say What You Want, which explains how Neo-Orthodox Scripture-twisters and eisegetical apostates pick and choose Scripture, quote it partially or out of context, and omit or ignore the Words of God that they find offensive.
The historical, Fundamental Christianity that Drollinger teaches was considered the benchmark until about 120 years ago when radical theologians invented Liberal Theology.
This new man-made Liberal Theology, or Social Gospel, rejected basic Christian tenets such as salvation through Christ alone, and yet continued to call itself Christianity. This caused then, and is continuing to cause now, much confusion about Christianity. Historic Evangelicals look to the Bible for how God’s Word defines a Christian — a follower of all of Christ’s teachings, not just those they agree with.

Montgomery needs to be reminded that it is not Drollinger, but leading Liberal Theologian Kirsopp Lake who said Liberal Theology is another religion entirely:
“It is a mistake, often made by educated persons who happen to have but little knowledge of historical theology, to suppose that Fundamentalism is a new and strange form of thought. It is nothing of the kind; it is the . . . survival of a theology which was once universally held by all Christians . . .
“It is we who have departed from the tradition, not he, and I am sorry for the fate of anyone who tries to argue with a Fundamentalist on the basis of authority. The Bible and the corpus theologicum of the Church is on the Fundamentalist side.” (The Religion of Yesterday and Tomorrow, p. 61-62; Kirsopp Lake.)
