In search of a real God with real answers

A friend of mine reminded me of a clip from the TV show “ER” where a dying patient confronts a theologically liberal hospital chaplin.

Here’s the clip and quote highlights:

All I’m hearing is some new age “God is love” one-size-fits-all crap . . . I don’t have time for this now . . . I want a real chaplain who believes in a real God and a real Hell . . . I don’t need to “ask myself,” I need answers, and all your questions and uncertainty are only making things worse . . .
I need someone who will look me in the eye and tell me how to find forgiveness, because I am running out of time!

I often wonder, when will people in the average church in America stand up and demand more of their teachers and themselves? When will it stop being ok for most people to feed off of spiritual junk?
