What Paul Might Say Today: Critiques in the Practical Theology of 21st Century Western Christendom

Desmond Paul Allen

Knowledge abounds within the average Western Evangelical Christian church. Many parishioners actively study their Bibles, memorizing verses, the books of the Bible, and numerous applicable narratives of interest. They listen intently to the pastor's sermon, and many attend Sunday school to learn even more. This is all good. But over the centuries certain practices within Western Christendom have arisen that are other than biblical. Some have become so commonplace and central to Western culture and the Christian life that few Christians ever stop to question or critique their presence. Here, vital issues as such socio-political activism, marriage and divorce, science and faith, prosperity theology, local church activities and more are critiqued and found wanting. These deficits are such that the overall appearance of modern Western Christendom mirrors that of the Laodiceans. If we understand the seven letters to the seven churches in the Revelation to be a prophetic view of the Church Age, we are hard pressed not to see 21st Century Christendom.
