The Real Roots of the Emergent Church

Found this through Sola Sisters...it's 2 hours long so it's something that has to be scheduled into your day, but hopefully many will make time to watch this:

    1. Hi Indy,

      It is long...but there is so much information, and helps me better understand the problems with what is the "new dialectic" (another gospel, which is not the gospel-- "gospel" means "good news" and this "new gospel" is NOT good news-- it is still the same lie that the serpent spoke to Eve from the beginning)

      If you like to see it "full screen" for some reason, my blog doesn't allow it. I have tried to see if there's a way to change my settings or to adjust the information on the Youtube formatting, but I guess I'm just not computer smart enough to figure it out, so if you like full screen, click on the "Youtube" logo on the video and it will take you to the original Youtube location and you can make it full screen from that.

      Hope you get a chance to see it, it is very good, imo. :)

  2. Thank you Susan, for sharing.;)
    I will share too.
    Phemonenol! Essential! Apropo! Timely! Powerfully Revealing!

    Eric Ludy, Joe Schimmel, Chris Rosebrough, Bob DeWaay, Gary Gilley, Ray Yungen, Robert LeBus, Jay Peters, James Sundquist, and Elliott Nesch all deserve our prayer support for their battle against the heresy of these Emergents. The Emergents need our prayers to BELIEVE on Jesus Christ's perfect work. Twisting the fears of people to reject that need for His perfect work is ultimate chaos, there is no LOVE in their emergent other gospel at all!

    "Spiritually bankrupt" "False hope"

    So great LOVE flung back into the face of our heavenly Father is indeed the way to destruction. So so so sad.:(

  3. I haven't watched the video yet, but I hope to soon. I don't know much at all about the emergent church, though I have heard from several sources that people in this movement often meet in house churches and avoid traditional church settings. I fully understand that it can be difficult to find a good church, especially in some parts of the country, and I understand that there can be many good reasons for not attending a local church regularly, at least for a time.

    However, I am deeply concerned that so many young Christians seem disinterested in church. I think that this is problematic for a number of reasons. First, there is a real danger that the sacraments will be neglected and administered improperly. Second, there is a danger that Scripture will be neglected or badly interpreted. Third, there is the danger of the loss of orthodox doctrine. Fourth, there is the danger of lacking properly trained pastors, which is connected with all of the previous problems, and potentially creates even more problems. I worry that many young Christians today will turn their backs on Scripture, the sacraments, and orthodox doctrine, and that they will due this largely because they don't like the music, the architecture, or the social atmosphere of their local churches. I don't want to generalize, especially since my exposure to such young Christians has been pretty limited, but these things do concern me. I worry that young Christians in America today may be in particular danger, as many seem to have the attitude that if something isn't immediately agreeable, then they will look elsewhere or give up altogether. I hope that I do not sound overly critical. I certainly don't mean to be. I am just concerned that the Bible, orthodox doctrine, and the sacraments are being lost in many churches. The church needs to reach these young people.
