For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus’ sake. 2 Corinthians 4:5
As our culture has become increasingly secular over the past few decades, evangelical church leaders have adapted their services to attract especially a younger generation that hasn’t been exposed to traditional biblical Christianity.
Verse by verse preaching has been replaced with messages on felt needs and a traditional order of worship, that included staples such as Bible reading and hymn singing, has been “updated” with worship bands, dramas, mood lighting, and all manner of other methods to create a multi-sensory “worship experience”.
The point could be made that the Bible-believing church in America has changed more in the last 40 years than in the first 200. But is that a good thing?
Phil Johnson, a frequent writer and speaker on the church and the executive director of Grace to You, joins us this weekend on The Christian Worldview to discuss current trends in the evangelical church and if the trajectory is one that is honoring to the Lord.
