When it comes to what changes are "absolutely necessary" for the United States to address in the next 10 years, the most likely answer among Americans pertains to children's future. Among evangelicals, however, the priority was much different, a new survey found.

While enhancing the health of Christian churches was listed as the lowest priority among Americans (44 percent), evangelicals listed it among their highest priorities in changes that need to be addressed.

But in the last 50 years a fourth stream has been added, Evangelicalism in the form of mild Calvinism. It seems that since this last stream, the church has lost it's identity in what it once believed. It seems now that there has been a flood of streams which do not support a unity that was once the joy of the brethren...

And I see it in the church that I attend. Everyone is reading all the popular christian books of today. Everyone is doing the 12 step plans to find God...

They have lost the path their father once traveled.

In Christ
