Here's an article that sums up what's become of churches very well.
Here's the grand finale from it:
Liberals, being infamous for their innate tendency to follow their feelings and romance evil in order to somehow find the good in it, regularly receive the wrath of conscientious conservatives, who themselves, all too often, rely on their own Reasoning skills and Rationale to persuade; but the end is still the same: death.

<I style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal">“There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”[/I] – Proverbs 16:25
Moreover, in the absence of God’s absolutes and our faithful adherence to them, a majority of Christians in and around the church today are learning to dialectically synthesize good and evil so as to find common ground with the enemies of Christ in the interest of evangelism; compromising their convictions for the sake of “unity in diversity” and calling it “love” in order to achieve a universal, be it manufactured peace and oneness with the world through “personal experience,” thereby accommodating everyone’s appetites, including their own; and satisfying as many senses as possible for fun and profit under the grand and glorious guise of “Experiencing God,” whomever yours may happen to be beneath the U.N.’s big tent of tolerance.
This is the “new spirituality” my friends; a humorous hodgepodge of humanism, happenstance, hobby and heresy, laced with just enough paraphrased scripture to give it a Christian taste. After all, who is going to hand over a fist full of cash these days for a book titled “Obeying God?” or show up for a seminar on dying to self?

BUT -- there's more! This guy proctor has 3 decades behind him as a country musician of note. Google his name for proof, and rely on TNT's Nelson Waller to get you the stuff Google doesn't readily find.......
..............with help, yet again, from Wikipedia: "While claiming to have little interest in politics, Proctor is very critical of President George W. Bush and skeptical of Bush's religious faith. He also criticizes of Christians who support Bush, and wrote favorably of Constitution Party candidate Michael Peroutka in the run-up to the 2004 U.S. Presidential Election."
I'm not a country music follower and have never heard of Proctor. Is he well known at all amongst followers of that type of music? At least he's spoken out. That's probably a good indication that he's not well known as no one who makes lots of money from the entertainment industry ever challenges the system, because they know the punishment is swift, brutal and sure.
