Philosopher Søren Kierkegaard critiqued “Christendom” as a perversion of authentic, New Testament Christianity—arguing that it transformed New Testament Christianity into an institutionalized, materialistic, and triumphalist religion of modernism. Kyle Roberts writes that emergent Christianity is attempting to carve out a more authentic way of being Christian and doing church within—and beyond—the institutionalized church of modernity. In many ways, Kierkegaard’s critiques, concerns, and goals overlap with emergent Christianity and the emerging church.
