The liberal Presbyterian Church (USA), having endorsed apostasy, is vanishing before our very eyes with losses of about 3 percent of its membership year after year. On the other hand, the conservative Presbyterian Church in America and the Evangelical Presbyterian Church are flourishing and growing. The liberal Episcopal Church, having endorsed apostasy, likewise is wasting away with about 3 percent of its membership leaving year after year. On the other hand the conservative Anglican Church in North America and the Anglican Mission in America are flourishing and growing.

The recent General Convention of the Episcopal Church has prompted a broader discussion of the fate of liberal Christianity. No surprise—the Episcopal Church has been one of the most aggressively liberal influences in American Christianity in the past few years, pushing hard against the traditions of the broader Anglican Communion. In The New York Times, Ross Douthat goes so far as to ask, "Can Liberal Christianity Be Saved?" But that question necessarily prompts two others: What is Liberal Christianity, and Should it be saved?

Liberal Christianity is dying on the vine. Mainline denominations are taking big hits across the board....
