Dr Mohler notes,
Seen in retrospect, it is clear that the "Death of God" movement did not survive the 1960s. Within a few short years, much of the stridency of the secular tide had been repackaged into the more benign-appearing "spiritualities" of the postmodern age.
The movement did accomplish one thing -- it drove me out of the United Church, the initial incident in the chain of life events that resulted in God eventually opening my eyes and taking me out of the kingdom of darkness and into His kingdom of light.
If the current apostasy does the same for others it will have served God's purposes well. Those in the throes of the current controversies will one day look back and see that it was all part of the plan.
