The interview above aired on Generations Radio with Kevin Swanson on March 17, 2014:

When governments are controlled by tyrants, it takes Christians with faith and courage to make the stand against these governments. Kevin Swanson interviews Eric Metaxas on his recent book on the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Towards the end of his life, Bonhoeffer did finally confess the real, historic resurrection faith – in a world of compromise and liberalism. What lessons may we draw from this German pastor, as we enter the dark ages of anti-Christian fervor in the rest of the West?

“I’m talking about the theological liberals in the mainstream church that is just getting off in a whole other direction where they are just failing to teach biblical orthodoxy, failing to teach the Bible as the word of God and yet they still think of themselves as the church,” he said. “We see that obviously happening in issues of sexuality, but how can you say that most mainline denominations in America today are profoundly Christian when they have given up the ghost on all of these fundamentals of the faith? You had the exact same thing happening in Germany. It’s just setting things up so that when evil comes, where do people turn?”
