The Evangelical Bridge (The Dangerous Mixing Of Evangelical Theology)

By Pastor Bruce K. Oyen and Dr. James P. Steel

We live in remarkable days in many ways. One remarkable characteristic of these days  is how evangelical Christians, and no doubt some fundamental ones, too, mix their theological beliefs. It reminds me of what are called “swirl” or “twist” ice cream cones, in which two different flavors are mixed together, such as chocolate and vanilla. I like these kinds of ice cream cones. They are a harmless mixing of two flavors. But this is not a good idea when it comes to mixing theology.

Dr. James P. Steel has done an excellent job of analyzing this unfortunate mixing of evangelical theology. Here is a link to a 25 minute video in which he explains and illustrates it, and in which he states why it is a problem: http://vimeo.com/113934199. You will benefit from watching it.
