TOPIC: Will Cracks Crater The Evangelical Church?

I know that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; 30 and from among your own selves men will arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them.  Acts 20:29

As our guest Justin Peters said two weeks ago on The Christian Worldview, there are some serious “cracks” forming within Evangelicalism right now that compromise biblical doctrine and the gospel and threaten to undermine once-sound churches.

Four pressure points to discern and pray against are the push to:

  1. Synthesize the homosexual movement and Christianity, particularly in light of the upcoming Revoice Conference
  2. Frame the many categories of “social justice” as a “gospel issue”
  3. Change complementarian gender roles in the church and home to egalitarian
  4. Join with errant signs and wonders movements, such as the New Apostolic Reformation 

Think this is alarmism?  Then consider where most of the mainline Protestant denominations (Presbyterian Church USA, Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, Episcopal Church etc.) once stood and now stand on these issues.

Syndicated radio host Janet Mefferd will join us this weekend on The Christian Worldview to mostly address the first two issues.  Janet recently attended the Southern Baptist Convention’s annual conference, the largest Protestant denomination in the U.S. with 15 million members in 47,000 member churches, and will comment on the pressures within the SBC and other Evangelical denominations to compromise.
