D.A. Carson in Five Trends on the Church Today

Below are five trends in the church that trouble him which he elaborated on at a luncheon just before this year’s Desiring God National Conference. You can check out the whole post at ACTS 29.

1. It is important to observe contradictory trends.

2. Current evangelical fragments are moving into a new phase — into polarized “clumps.”

3. The most dangerous trends in any age are the trends that most people do not see.

4. There is a trend in our churches to be consumed by social concern.

5. There is a trend in our churches to emphasize discipleship over the gospel.
