Dr. Tennent was right

"In the Protestant Reformation, the Enlightenment, the Romantic era, and well into modernity the values of the individual’s right and liberty to go in search of self-understanding and determination put down deep roots."
Indeed, in drawing attention toward the Self, those movements and eras drew people away from God. If I'm not mistaken, that's exactly one of the battles we're to fight as Christians. Your argument reveals that you have forgotten or diminished this fact.
I'd add that Dr. Tennent's message in no way attacked vulnerable people. He might have used language of a more overtly loving nature, but his points were made against the wisdom of the current age which distracts and misleads people who are vulnerable in terms of their ignorance of God.
