Evangelicalism in Chaos?

I recommend that all who are concerned about the state of the church read today's post on Jesus Creed, Scot McKnight's blog, about the book "Finding Faith, Losing Faith." Today, iMonk responds to a chapter on evangelicals converting to Roman Catholicism, a matter he is facing in his own marriage. While reflecting on the experience and commenting on the evangelical church that some are leaving, he writes these devastating words:
Evangelicalism today is chaos. Doctrinal chaos. Worship chaos. Ecclesiastical chaos. Prosperity Gospel chaos. Christian media multiplies the options and amplifies the heretics. We are more removed from our common catholic, apostolic roots than ever. We are diseased and we need a St. Francis and a Luther combined.
What do you think? Is the situation as serious as he claims?
