Issues facing the church

That was the question on a gospel preachers email group. The poster asked for a list of six from each group member. Here’s how I responded.

I understand the question to be those issues that the church now faces which threaten her integrity and identity.

1. Clergyism.
2. Loss of mission.
3. Worldliness.
4. Self-centeredness.
5. Building obsession.
6. Issues obsession.

And one for free:

7. Institutionalism.

Many of these interact and influence each other.

What would make your list?
