“Seems to me that, since any doctrinal position is accepted, that calling this movement a “church” is a misnomer. A church is the “pillar and ground of the truth.” If the movement can accept wide variety of doctrine as “truth” it cannot be the pillar or the ground of the truth.
This video also shows that the term “evangelical” has little meaning today. The Scriptures are very clear about what truth is. Those say we can believe pretty much whatever we want and still be Christians are against the clear teachings of Scripture. We are to “earnestly contend for the faith once delivered to the saints.”
The idea that we can’t communicate with this postmodern world without changing is a gross error. What the world needs, even the postmodern, is strong Bible preaching.
What people want is a mystical religion that makes them feel “spiritual.” The more a religion depends on emotionalism will never find the truth. The emergent church movement will never find what it pretends to be looking to become since having and “open mind” is more important than truth. Truth is absolute and does not change.
Modern Christianity in general, and the emergent church movement in particular, have no standard upon which to base their beliefs. They use anything that claims to be a Bible and any interpretation that someone can come up with.” – Pierre Coovert
