discussion question due 300-400 words NEEDED BY MIDNIGHT EASTERN TIME

This week, we have studied the contemporary culture of the United States and Christianity’s interaction with and place in that culture. We have seen that Christianity is often displaced by or, more often, mixed with Moral Therapeutic Deism, which has resulted in the “juvenilization of Christianity.”

Using the course materials from weeks 1-4, in 300-400 words, evaluate and critique Moral Therapeutic Deism/Juvenilization of Christianity. How does Moral Therapeutic Deism answer the enduring question, “What is a human being?” Why, in your opinion, does it seem that this answer appeals to many modern Americans? How does that answer differ from biblical Christianity? In what ways is it “parasitic” to biblical Christianity?
