The Dark Side of Evangelicalism


The first weakness I find is a tendency of evangelicals to lean toward anti-intellectualism.

The second weakness I find is a tendency of evangelicals to succumb to hero-worship.

The third weakness I find is a tendency of evangelicals to eschew organized efforts at social reconstruction to eliminate poverty, hunger and oppression.

The fourth weakness I find is a tendency of evangelicals to follow a “Christ against culture” approach (H. Richard Niebuhr) to the arts.

The fifth and final weakness (for now) is a tendency I find among evangelicals toward spiritual elitism—to the point of often believing that non-evangelical Christians are not authentically Christian or even saved.
