Has America's Form of Christianity Left the Church in 'Spiritually Dead' Condition?

A California pastor says he is concerned about the state of the church and believes that Christianity in America has shifted away from the Gospel and instead of being the light of the world, Christians are beginning to look just like the world.

Shane Idleman, founder and lead pastor of Westside Christian Fellowship in Lancaster, Calif., wrote a blog post directed towards church leaders who he says have exchanged the truth for tolerance. He urges them and the rest of the Christian community to reflect on whether they are affecting the world or being infected by it.

"The present condition of the church and America leaves one to wonder if this lack of fearing the Lord is contributing to her spiritually dead condition. A healthy respect of God is what our culture, and the church desperately need," Idleman told The Christian Post. ...

I forgot to put the word dead before churches in the phrase "but the Evangelical Protestant Churches are not dead churches". I didn't catch that.

I reckoned he must have left out the word "dead" before "churches", otherwise it makes no sense whatever, and most likely could have been written by someone insane and psychotic who was not cognizant of how to construct a normal sentence.

Ah, but you already knew that, Mike.

Christopher it is so prevalent it seems there is nothing else. Most will claim their church is different, including most everyone on here, but upon inspection they are all the same in different wrappers.

Right Thomas. Nothing new whatsoever. I do think the rapid decline is pretty incredible though along with how "Christians" seem to be rapidly embracing whatever the new normal of the day might be, becoming friends to the world through tolerance. God has changed, God loves everyone, the bible wasn't written for today, we must conform, we must love, love, love. No fear of God anymore and ecumenism from the pulpits isn't helping the situation.

Ah, my pastor has mentioned this more than once the latest sermon on it is, Contending For the Gospel, an excerpt from the summary for it,
Gil Rugh said or, wrote:
Efforts to help and support people worldwide by the Church and the people of God must first and foremost be by, and with, the Gospel. Only the Gospel changes lives in ways that are presently and eternally transforming. Involvement in political and social activities undermines, distracts from, and potentially corrupts the proclamation of the Gospel. The Church today is in desperate need of hearing and heeding this warning as was sounded in the early church.
John Y., intersting to note that 1 out of 10 Catholics leave their apostate (Roman Catholicism—Apostolic or Apostate?(PDF)) church, for much the same reasons, The hidden exodus: US Catholics becoming Protestants. It would be great if the number could be increased to 1 in 5 Catholics quitting their church! Ah, but we would be happy to hear about one in particular quit

""But if God brings revival … if we once again set our hearts and minds on Him … there is tremendous hope."

"*IF* God brings revival."

If God does not then America is doomed to apostasy and hell.

Well that makes practical sense.
But the *IF* part seems to doubt God's plan and purpose for mankind. This sounds like the old proverbial question, "Should we be speaking to God - Or to man?"

Ezek 33:8 When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
9 Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.
