The theological environment today is apt to lean toward the individualistic and therapeutic rather than toward the corporate and historical. The church's response to modernity has led many Christians away from historical church resources and kingdom theology toward self-improvement, individuated faith, and sensationalism. Theology, and therefore the applied theology of the Christian life, has been usurped by the subjective self. The Christian mind has been eroded by this self-absorbed therapeutic theology.
