Chronological Snobbery and Christianity

"Chronological snobbery" was a term used by the 20th-century theologian C.S. Lewis. It is an approach to history and knowledge where we deem that new ideas are good and old ideas are bad. Evangelical Christians are increasingly doing this with theology and non-biblical ideas. In this podcast, we discuss the weaknesses of this approach for Christians and how "if it's recent, it's decent" is not necessarily true.
