It’s becoming increasingly clear that within the American church there is a growing fascination with “progressive theology,” or at least aspects of it. Names like Rachel Held Evans, or more recently Rob Bell, seem to constantly be stirring the waters of evangelicalism; some think this is for the better of the American church, and others think this paves the way for her downfall. (See here for a recent and short post by Scot McKnight: Why Are So Many (Young) Evangelicals Now Progressives?)
Here’s what pastor John Mark Comer (of Bridgetown Church, Portland, Or) has to say about it.
Note: Comer is not exactly known for being a fundamentalist; some actually put him in the same boat as Progressive Christians.
