Contemporary Christianity is a personal and relative view. It is generally agreed that contemporary Christianity is less stringent and more flexible as compared to orthodox or traditional Christianity. 

As times change, peoples views on religion change as well. Thus Christianity too has adapted to today's world. Contemporary Christianity is sometimes though of as the continuous revision of New Testament religion aimed at attracting those leaving the faith, aimed at being relatively agreeable to the world. Yet it need not have such a negative connotation.


An example of changing Christianity would be Contemporary Christian Music (or CCM) which refers to a genre of some trendy music whose lyrics are centred on matters relating to the Christian faith.

Many orthodox Christians criticize the notion of contemporary Christianity stating that religion should not be bent in order to suit out lifestyles.

It is good for Christianity to reach out to people who are not Christians, and help them to feel welcomed and understood by Christians.  However, they should not compromise the message of the Gospel just to be "trendy"!! Not only is that wrong, it is also very very dangerous for society and everyone in it!  God is the Creator of the world and all human beings.  ALL Christians agree on this.  Therefore, He is concerned about ALL of us getting on well with each other.  THAT is why Traditional Christianity is more focused on putting other people before yourself, instead of just doing whatever you want.  Contemporary Christians must understand this message!!!
