Hillary Clinton who cares poseA biblical scholar says Hillary Clinton's assessment of Christianity as "judgmental" and "alienating" is wrong.

The former first lady made the comment in a recent "You and Me Both" podcast episode on faith.

"A lot of young people are leaving the Church in part because the way they understand what Christianity has become is, you know, so judgmental, so alienating that they think to themselves, Well, I don't need that." Clinton declared.

While young people have been leaving in droves from denominations like Clinton's liberal wing of Methodism for years, Christian apologist Dr. Alex McFarland begs to differ with her conclusion. In his experience, biblically sound evangelical churches are doing a much better job at retaining their youth.

"The churches that are growing and are reaching and retaining young people from middle school, teens, college age, and young adults are the more biblically orthodox churches," he asserts.

That, however, is not to say the world has not picked off too many Christian young people, as US colleges and universities indoctrinate their charges with a godless, Marxist worldview that teaches kids that Christianity is an old white man's religion.

"There are many young people that are very astute critical thinkers, and they have resisted the push to become the racists that public education has tried to lead them to be," Dr. McFarland observes.

He encourages people to consider the source when evaluating Clinton's claims regarding the faith.

"The people who understand Christianity most clearly are those who really are Christians," he submits, concluding, "I would not put a lot of stock in the critique of Christianity by a woman who is not a Christian."
