*]From a sociological perspective, megachurches located in suburban areas will face challenges as the local population declines. Furthermore, cultural changes, demographic realities, and technological innovations have led to the development of megachurch modifications such as churches with multiple locations and video sermons.
*]Theologically, most megachurches are conservative in orientation, but there is a risk of a "watered-down" gospel message as megachurches grow in size.
*]The culture at large has become hostile to exclusivist truth claims such as the belief that faith in Christ is necessary for salvation. There is also social pressure to accept a more liberal stance on issues related to sex, in particular homosexuality. The fear is that homosexuality will become an accepted practice, much like the issue of no-fault divorce. "Holding to strict biblical teachings on divorce is extremely costly."
*]There is an apparent tension between preaching "grace' and "truth" (the author provides a great example via Pastor Andy Stanley and a homosexual couple in his congregation). Pastors wanting to "grow their churches" face a temptation to change the gospel message in order to reach people.
I mean, if you don't like this church, just don't go to it.
