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.

Hey Paul, its Alex from Seminary. The newish book “Endangered Gospel” by John Nugent seems relevant to this discussion. He argues that social progress is not the responsibility of the church.
