The note from the editor states:
The following article was written on 3 February 2046 by Eutychus Bailey, author and former North American pastor. Because of amazingly quick Internet access and the exponential growth of micro-processing speeds, we are now able to publish this column forty years before it was actually written. This gives us the chance to get an unknowingly futurist perspective on where things are heading from this pragmatist writer observing his own times.
Note the date....
Bailey looks at four movements in the church, and gives his view on how they've have fared over the 'last' thirty or so years.
2000-2008: The Super-Church Satellite Movement
2008-2019:The Post-Evangelical Movement
2020-2031:The Melting Pot Movement
(An interesting take of where the church is currently at....)
