If you are not familiar with the term “Progressive Christianity”, you really should be. Progressive Christianity is a movement that is infiltrating and influencing the Evangelical church. This movement seeks to re-interpret the Bible, re-assess historic doctrines, and re-define core tenets of the faith. While claiming the title “Christian,” and boasting a high view of the Bible, it is sweeping up many unsuspecting Christians into a false view of who God is and how God saves people.
These two links directly below provide a quick overview of what Progressive Christianity is, what they are not, and what they believe, all in their own words: bethelbeaverton.org/progressive-christianity
The following is a direct quote from the above site:
“The leaders of Progressive Christianity had grown weary of defining their Christian faith in negative terms: “We aren’t fundamentalists. We don’t believe the Bible is the inerrant or infallible word of God. We don’t agree that Creationism should replace the science of evolution in public schools. We don’t believe that God hates gays. We don’t believe that people of other faiths are going to hell unless they convert to Christianity. We don’t deny the right of women to choose what happens to their bodies.”
The following site provides an overview, again, from their perspective, of the 8 points that they adhere to: progressivechristianity.org/the-8-points/
I have provided some selected links below which provide an informative overview of “Progressive Christianity” plus links that provide insight into the subtleties that are associated with this movement.
