Liberal Christianity Changing The Face Of Christianity Today

Liberal Christianity is definitely changing the face of Christianity today. Liberals and modernists are asking questions and providing answers that will likely gap the bridges between all schools of thought. And that would definitely benefit to the religion in general.

Christianity today is far different than it was even twenty or thirty years ago.  Christianity today is still based on the history of Christianity, but the times are changing the way people fit Christianity into their lives, and even the way the Bible is interpreted. Liberal Christianity is also changing the way people worship, interact, and believe. While Christianity today is still rooted in Christ, times are definitely changing.

The modern affects on Christianity today are not a bad thing, and sometimes it's even a good thing. Christians are actively questioning historical theology, which typically results in strengthening ones faith. Christianity today seems to be a much more personal and individual experience, while a Christian community remains just as important. In fact, most Christians today demand a strong sense of fellowship and comrade in their congregation. Therefore, Christianity  is being strengthened and renewed.

While strengthening is taking place in the hearts and minds of some Christians, others find the liberal Christianity an assault on the history of Christianity. A criticism of the Bible, a more personal view of God, broader views on salvation, a break from traditional views and concepts of heaven and hell, and a desire to mesh traditional theology with modern science often mark Liberal Christianity.  There are big and small modernism movements within Christianity today that are very unsettling for those who believe that Christianity should remain unchanged and untouched by the times. The tension between the two camps has caused a lot of unrest, and a pouring over the history of Christianity to support the philosophy of both sides.

Christianity today is changing and trying to accommodate the views and needs of all Christians: liberal, modern, or traditional. Luckily, there is room for all within Christianity as there are congregations within the same denomination that are either very traditional, liberal, or modernist so there is a church for everyone to call home, no matter what their stance is on Christianity today. This separation of the different mindsets has been a good thing, and limits unrest between each group while allowing each person to get what they need from their faith and worship services.

As time goes on, those of the liberal Christianity and modernist movements will continue to ask questions about the history of Christianity and if they find answers, they would likely affect all Christians and perhaps those answers will bridge the gaps that exist between them all.

While Christianity today is changing, it's also strengthening its roots across the world. People feel free to ask questions to strengthen their faith, and perhaps the faith of other people, too. The history of Christianity remains the same, but the more we learn about it and the more questions we ask the better. Asking questions and providing answers will deepen the love and faith that all Christians share, regardless of their school of thought.
