Ahhh... A Breath of Fresh Air

Two extremes have concerned me for a while:

Fundamentalists who criticize that all forms of evangelicalism are in a state of compromise, and are destined to fail because their foundation is faulty.


Evangelicals who are questioning and denouncing elemental theological issues (even things in the Apostles/Nicene Creeds), and are opening themselves up to a pluralism of sorts where any theological stance is acceptable.

Which is why my lungs filled with a sweet sense of peace and hope when I found out about a movement within Evangelicalism the other day.
It is called "The Gospel Coalition", and their website is: http://www.thegospelcoalition.org/

I am hoping and praying that this movement (perhaps there are others like this as well) will serve as a red flag to the two groups living in polar spheres of Christianity.
To the unmovable fundamentalists, I pray that this coalition shows that not all evangelicalism is "going to hell in a hand basket". No, there are many who are faithful to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
To the compromising evangelicals, I pray that this shows the error and shiftiness of removing all theological support structures. We must have something that is non-negotiable, and that is the gospel.
